It all began with the forging of the Great Rings. Three were given to the Elves; immortal, wisest and fairest of all beings. Seven, to the Dwarf Lords, great miners and craftsmen of the mountain halls. And nine, nine rings were gifted to the race of Men, who above all else desire power. For within these rings was bound the strength and the will to govern over each race. But they were all of them deceived, for another ring was made. In the land of Mordor, in the fires of Mount Doom, the Dark Lord Sauron forged, in secret, a master ring, to control all others. And into this ring he poured all his cruelty, his malice and his will to dominate all life. One ring to rule them all.

any available surface - the mountain goats

i waved at you when you hit the disappearing point
turned in for the night the next day around ten
i caught the sweet scent of your hair on my pillowcase
felt so much in love i felt like myself again
someday the only thing i wanna rely upon
is any available surface that you’ve rested your head on

back in the cave i traced the arc of our awakening
shimmering down in the darkness, like hidden gold
and i said my secret to myself out loud again
we may live to see miracles, if our faith can hold
someday the only thing i want to rely upon
is any available surface that you rested your head on

The Lord of the Rings II The Fellowship of the Ring
“The world is changed. I feel it in the water. I feel it in the earth. I smell it in the air. Much that once was, is lost. For none now live, who remember it. It began with the forging of the Great Rings. Three were given to the Elves, immortal, wisest and fairest of all beings. Seven, to the Dwarf lords, great miners and craftsmen of the mountain halls. And nine, nine rings were gifted to the race of Men, who above all else, desire power. For within these Rings was bound the strength and will to govern each race. But they were all of them, deceived. For another ring was made. In the land of Mordor, in the fires of Mount Doom, the dark lord Sauron forged in scret a master ring to control all others. And into this ring, he poured his cruelty, his malice and his will to dominate all life. One Ring to rule them all…“

The Lord of the Wedding Rings: The Return of the King - iguana’s 2017 HELLsinki Worlds recap

This is it guys, the last big competition before the Olympics. So much potential for great skates, great disasters and great distress; this competition did not fail to deliver. Nor did the announcers, who were screaming out names and scores as if it were a wrestling match. And it was, in one way or another. Albeit a sparklier one. For a brief couple of days, we thought Javier Fernandez was gonna win his 3rd consecutive World title and I almost had those memes ready but at the same time I knew coming from behind like a wrecking ball was Yuzuru Hanyu’s specialty. To nobody’s surprise Evgenia Medvedeva broke a record; to everyone’s surprise, she only broke it in the long program. Meanwhile, Wenjing Sui and Cong Han’s blues for koolk brought the pairs crown back to China and Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir purple rained on Gabriella Papadakis and Guillaume Cizeron’s parade. Let’s start the recap!

She’d gone through eighteen years as the town psychic’s daughter, and now, in her senior year, she had already held every single possible conversation about that fact. She had been shunned and embraced and bullied and cajoled. She was going to hell, she had the straight line to spiritual nirvana. Her mother was a hack, her mother was a witch. Blue dressed like a hobo, Blue dressed like a fashion mogul. She was untouchably hilarious, she was a friendless bitch. It had faded into monotonous background noise. The disheartening and lonesome upshot was that Blue Sargent was the strangest thing in the halls of Mountain View High School.

Warnings: Not any by the moment. 

Words: 1124

Summary: You enter a cave, allured by excitement and a mysterious voice.


There was a tingle in the tip of your fingers. It was thrill, so familiar in the past, now forgotten and lost in the monotony of your days. It was the delicious shadow of a real feeling which, little by little, was growing and possessing your body. The adrenaline was making its way through your veins, dissolving the hesitance. You couldn’t explain the baffling pull, nor how your will was yielding to the pure instinct.

The sharp edges of the rocks were covered with weeds. The bright green contrasted with the soft grey of porous texture. You could almost hear your name being called from the interior of the cave. That darkness pouring out of the crevice was filled with secrets you wouldn’t be able to come up with in a lifetime.

Ignoring the danger and your common sense, you entered. None of those stories about missing wanderers nor the warning signs along the way would break the spell. If you had any fear, it was buried under the weight of excitement.

All right, so, how many people in the dgm universe are actually aware of the who exorcist schtick? Do people know about akuma? Do people know that these weird people in fancy uniforms are technically the good guys? Or are you just minding your business one day when this 7 ft tall blind dude shows up, books a night at the inn, then you hear a bit of verdi’s requiem dies irae movement and the next day he’s gone without a trace, there’s dust everywhere, the ghost problem is gone, and half the population of the village is missing

‘‘And if we should die tonight
We shall all die together
Raise a glass of wine for the last time
Calling out father
Oh, prepare as we will watch the flames
Burn auburn on the mountainside
Desolation comes upon the sky‘‘
‘‘Oh, should my people fall
Surely I’ll do the same
Confined in mountain halls
We got too close to the flames

Oh, hold fast and we will watch the flames
Burn auburn on the mountainside
Desolation comes upon the sky‘‘

He will do very well, I can tell, I can tell
Keep me safe in his bell tower, hotel‘‘

Boy, you have landed

Warm me up

Because you know I love the players
And you love the game‘‘
‘‘Because we’re young and reckless

Got a long list of ex lovers
They’ll tell you I’m insane
But I’ve got a blank space baby’’

Falling into place‘‘
‘‘My days end best
when the sunset gets itself behind
That little lady
Sitting on the passenger side
It’s much less picturesque
Without her catching the light
The horizon tries
But it’s just not as kind on the eye‘‘
‘‘Just might’ve tapped into your mind and soul
You can’t be sure‘‘

  • PISCIS: Paradise - Coldplay

‘‘When she was just a girl
She expected the world
But it flew away from her reach
So she ran away in her sleep
And dreamed of paradise
Paradise, paradise, paradise
Every time she closed her eyes‘‘
‘‘Life goes on, gets so heavy
The wheel breaks the butterfly
Every tear a waterfall
In the night, the stormy night
She’d close her eyes
In the night, the stormy night
Away she’d fly‘‘

Middle Earth: WITH GUNS!!

I decided to take the lead from This Post about a sign typo for a Karate academy for *Elf Defense. So, what happens if we apply the Tolkien racial characteristics of various popular Middle Earth races to firearm development? Let’s see.


As the Age of Men, the 4th Age, began, the men of Theoden who survived Helms Deep passed onto soldiers of Gondor tales of an explosive powder that could tear down walls. The men of Gondor became envious of this and sought out the plans and recipes in Isengard. After years of quietly working, they discovered Saruman’s explosive powder, dubbed Blasting Dust, and developed weapons of their own. Generations passed and the engineers of men perfected their weapons, and now every soldier of Gondor is trained with deadly skill with both a sword and a gun.


Gondor

The men of Gondor are valiant and fair, residing in the southern river basins between Mordor, the Ered Nimrais mountains, and the ocean. At the dawn of the 4th age they recovered from the cowardly stewardship of Denathor and the True King took the throne. Under the new invigorated leadership they discovered blasting dust and began developing weapons for war. Today, their weapons are fine tuned and they take great pride in carrying the seal of the White Tree of Gondor.


Rohan

While the men of Rohan were the ones who passed the original stories of blasting dust to Gondor, they had neither the need for it nor the factories to make it in their nomadic lifestyle. Only after firearms spread across Middle Earth did their riders begin to adopt some. Similarly to their swords and armor, they decided they were comfortable in an earlier era. Everyone else in Middle Earth is using weaponry that looks a little closer to 14th century, Rohan looks like they just stepped out of the 9th Century of Viking migration. Their swords have no cross-guard, and they work on horseback predominantly. So in the thread of older weaponry, the Horsemen of Rohan would likely ride with old Winchester style carbines they could use easily on horseback, and their archers would use longer full length rifles. Their soldiers would also be well trained in swordsmanship and bayonet skills, and were still deadly with a blade.


Elves

Masters of speed and accuracy, the Elves value quickness, agility, and accuracy. Their famed skills at range would be matched by the beauty and elegance of their rifles. Against hordes of melee opponents, their skilled rangers would mow down enemies with light and agile guns. The Elves love nature and natural materials and have a strong artistic sense even in their weaponry. Because of this, the Elves would likely develop weapons that were both elegant and devastating.

The Elves also have skilled city guards to withstand any siege or assault. These guards are able to reach out to great distances and destroy incoming enemies or dispatch single commanders from a besieging army. These guards stand vigilant with elegant and deadly rifles in what we today would call “Safari” calibers.


Dwarves

Late to develop firearms for themselves, the Dwarves were quick to catch up. Stout, violent, and preferring to do their fighting up close, the Dwarves took previous failures and learned from others’ mistakes, then applied their renowned craftsmanship to developing incredible weapons of war. Whether storming the mountain halls of enemy clans or meeting the Orcs in the deep caves where they hide, these short, fast, 8 gauge shotguns are the epitome of metallurgy and craftsmanship. The wielder and the gun both boast a deafening roar.

Some dwarves like their axes with light and agile blades. Others, well others want to drunkenly smash their way through anything with a hammer of justice. Meet the new hammer.


Orcs

Small, crafty, and violent, the Orcs are the spawn of Elves twisted and darkened by Melkor and his magic many ages ago before the Great Sundering. (They are not Uruk Hai!! We’ll get to them.)  After the fall of Sauron at the end of the Third Age, the Orcs and fell beasts were scattered, but not all of them were destroyed. Hiding away in the dark and cold north, the Orcs developed weapons of their own. Though not overpowering in their strength or cunning alone, their tenacity and numbers make them frightening enemies to face. Preferring weapons that are light and fast with a high rate of fire, their weapons would resemble the Soviet PPSh-41, and their tactics would resemble the “Human Wave” to overwhelm their enemies with flesh and lead alike.

Uruk-Hai

We finally arrive at the youngest and harshest fell beast in Middle Earth. Invented by selectively breeding Orcs and Goblins in the late Third Age, Uruk Hai stand nearly 7′ tall with massive shoulders an intense strength. These brutish but simple creatures take orders well, deal death indiscriminately, and strike fear into the hearts of any they face with their cult-like behavior. No I’m not talking about the US Marine Corps (though, spade-a-spade, love ya’ Devil Dogs). The simple rank and file Uruk are still the elite force of dark armies everywhere, and their war chants can scarcely be heard over the clamor of their terrifying weapons, developed from captured Dwarves.

The most terrifying of Uruk are a special breed. Shorter and meaner than the rest, these shock troopers spare no expense when it comes to dealing death. Harnessing the power of Blasting Dust on both ends, these shock Uruk run into battle with explosive launching rifles too heavy for most men to wield.

And finally, we have the Dead Men of Dunharrow 

They never got any guns. Thanks to this guy
