Did anyone stop to think that maybe Jongin crying has nothing to do with kaistal or kaisoo or anything involving scandals and shit- but maybe, just maybe, because of Jongin’s own inner turmoil and personal insecurities that we don’t know about??
(( FRIENDLY REMINDER THAT DESPITE WHAT IS SAID IN THE MOVIES, BOOK!THRANDUIL DOESN’T DISCRIMINATE AGAINST THE SILVANS
THERE’S THIS WHOLE CULTURAL BLENDING THING GOING ON IN MIRKWOOD
OROPHER AND THE SINDAR MOVED TO MIRKWOOD BECAUSE THEY WANTED TO RETURN TO THE WAY OF LIFE OF THE SILVANS
NOT BECAUSE THEY WANTED TO INSTALL THEMSELVES AS THE RULERS OVER A PEOPLE THEY VIEWED AS LESSER THAN THEMSELVES
Compared with the Elves of Doriath, his Silvan folk were rude and rustic. Oropher had come among them with only a handful of Sindar, and they were soon merged with the Silvan Elves, adopting their language and taking names of Silvan form and style. This they did deliberately; for they (and other similar adventurers forgotten in the legends or only briefly named) came from Doriath after its ruin and had no desire to leave Middle-earth, nor to be merged with the other Sindar of Beleriand, dominated by the Noldorin [High-elven] Exiles for whom the folk of Doriath had no great love. They wished indeed to become Silvan folk and to return, as they said, to the simple life natural to the Elves before the invitation of the Valar had disturbed it.

Sitting at his throne with his Knights alongside him, Ren’s thoughts are with the lowly scavenger…wondering where she was…what she was doing…and the memory of that night, when she saw his greatest fears…when she summoned that lightsaber…when she became his whole world.
Aldnoah.Zero ep.18 » “No lowly terran could possibly be a match for mighty Vers. Such an assumption creates an opening. Which becomes a tear. And then an enormous hole. And then it disintegrates completely. That is the current state of the Orbital Knights.”
Okay but real talk: when Smoky Quartz kept cracking all of these self-depreciating jokes you could finally FINALLY see Sardonyx just like… Have a sudden moment of realization. Like Pearl and Garnet both realized how lowly Amethyst and Steven think of themselves, and of COURSE this is shown in their fusion, and I just… I dunno, it was a really powerful moment to me
