Sketch of Tom Thomson, 1914

~

“He was shy, but friendly… In the bush Tom Thomson came to life. One’s own experience of coming to terms with the northern environment led out from Thomson’s habit of making on see and experience for oneself. He saw a thousand things in the bush - animals and birds, a strand of fine pine, a stretch of muskeg with possibilities for the kind of thing you wanted to paint. [Thomson] very rarely spoke, but he’d always call your attention to something… He made you see things.” - Arthur Lismer

so I was thinking

you know how in AUJ it’s night when Thorin battles Azog and then again morning on the Carrock? I thought it didn’t make any sense until I realised something

that fight happens like a week after Midsummer, the longest day of the year, and at least here in Finland nights are short (like only four to five hours, at least here in Southern Finland - the norther you go the shorter they are) around Midsummer, so it’s actually pretty plausible that if it takes a couple of hours to fly to the Carrock the night turns into dawn

can’t believe it took me four years to realise this lmao

Aph Nordic Headcanon!

Sealand considers Denmark to be like an uncle. Peter goes to Mathias for advice on just about anything. In Peter’s eyes Mathias is the mighty majestic king of Norther Europe who will always be there whenever Sealand needs him. 

Peter looks up to Mathias. Mathias is afraid to look down at times because he can’t bare to not live up to Peter’s expectations. All Denmark wants is to have someone who he can teach and encourage. Denmark just wants someone to look to him. He wants someone to value him for who he is.
