On a blank leaf I scrawled: ‘In a hole in the ground there lived a Hobbit.’ I did not and do not know why. I did nothing about it for a long time, and for some years I got no further than the production of Thror’s map. But it became The Hobbit in the early 1930s..
-J.R.R. Tolkien in a letter to W.H. Auden, 1955.
let’s remember what started all the names, the places, the mountains and rivers, the poems, the movie trilogies, all the fanfictions, drawings, and paintings.. a sentence. written casually on a blank paper. I’m so glad he wrote the thing ~
And this is what happens when I don’t have homework. Based on this imagine.
“Bilbo, will you braid my hair for me?” The question slipped out of your mouth before you could stop it. It hadn’t been meant to sound so “implication-like”, as he would call it later on, but it had already come out, and there was no avoiding it now.
The hobbit blinked bleakly in your direction. “You want me to what?” he squeaked when he found his voice.
so… i finally got off my arse and uploaded stuff to Redbubble and if you like bunnies and hoppits and bears, oh my? uh well stuff like that. *fails at promotion* and these bunnies are completely safe for easter because please remember bunnies require a lifetime of care and commitment, and adopt, don’t shop *really really failing at promotion now* uhm yes and if you see something you had like as a particular product that isn’t available just let me know? *crawls under a rock*
