Sauron: [9:13AM] check me out
Sauron: [9:13AM] hotashecktoday.png
Radagast: [9:15AM] not bad, i guess
Sauron: [9:17AM] admit it, you’ve been jealous ever since you drew the Old Man Card
Radagast: [9:21AM] to be honest I’ve always thought that with that garbage personality you could use all the good looks you could get  
Sauron:  ✔️ seen at 9:22AM

I found something funny today and feel like sharing:

Those of you who have been following me long enough know that I have a little sister who got drunk whilst at BotFA, the same little sister that got her wisdom teeth removed and taped a frozen daiquiri pouch to her head. I use some of the things she says about this shit when she’s fucked up.

I was going through my notes on my phone because I keep some of my passwords in there, and found this long ass essay I wrote on the Valar and texted to her and it is hilarious.

white-lady-of-greenwood asked:

24 but for Aulë and Mairon (the father/son relationship)?

Sentence -  “You’re the only one I trust to do this.”

AO3

For white-lady-of-greenwood

Notes - I kind of wanted to do angst, but I settled on something happier. 

“You’re the only one I trust to do this.”

Aulë sighed, nodded, and gently pushed Mairon onto a chair. “If you insist,” he replied softly. “You don’t have to-“

“I want to.” Mairon’s bright eyes met his, so steely and determined. “Please.”

Aulë watched him for any sign that he would seriously regret this, any hesitations. Seeing none he nodded his head. “Run and get the kit,” he said after a moment.”

Mairon leapt to his and hurried off, Aulë shook his head, hoping he knew what he was getting himself into this time.

The Silmarillion Writers' Guild | July 2015 Newsletter

Our July 2015 newsletter has been posted:

http://www.silmarillionwritersguild.org/news/july2015.php

It’s a bit later than usual, but the 10th birthday announcement earlier in the week took up most of my time and also gave me a good excuse to allow a bit of a delay on the newsletter this month! :)

If you missed the announcement of our 10th birthday celebration on LJ, Dreamwidth, and Tumblr, check it out here: http://silwritersguild.livejournal.com/261334.html

In short, we mod-people have created a random Silmfic prompt generator and are challenging our authors to use it to write stories during July. We will have a prize drawing (prizes TBA very soon!) for all participants who want to enter. Our talented team of graphics artists have also put together a collection of birthday cards that can be sent to any SWG member during the month of July. Have a loyal beta you want to thank? Someone whose reviews frequently make your day? A favorite author or beloved friend? We have cards for all of those! See the post above for more information about the prompt generator, the prize drawing, and the birthday cards.

This month’s newsletter includes a biography of Bëor by Oshun. Bëor himself doesn’t do a whole lot in The Silmarillion, but he establishes a line that will feature prominently in all of the major historical events in the later ages of Arda and forges an alliance between the Eldar and Edain that will also persist through the ages.

If you’re looking for something to read, we had many new additions to the archive last month and several articles and videos featured in our Around the World and Web section. If you’re looking for something to write, our new challenge “Of Stories Left Untold” challenges writers to expand one of the many untold stories of the legendarium. If there’s a place in Middle-earth you’d like to visit, use it as a setting in a story for the “Holidays in Arda” challenge. (Or roll your own unique-to-you prompt using our prompt generator! http://silmarillionwritersguild.org/birthday10/story-generator.php)

Many thanks to Oshun, Rhapsody, and Angelica for their contributions to this month’s newsletter. I hope everyone enjoys it!

Fingon & Maedhros at war during the 400 year Siege of Angband

Maedhros:

“His body recovered from his torment and became hale, but the shadow of his pain was in his heart; and he lived to wield his sword with left hand more deadly than his right had been.” (The Silmarillion “Of the Return of the Noldor” p. 111)

Fingon:

“Then Fingon prince of Hithlum rode against him with archers on horse-back, and hemmed him round with a ring of swift riders; and Glaurung could not endure their darts, being not yet come to his full armoury, and he fled back to Angband, and came not forth again for many years.”  (The Simarillion “Of the Return of the Noldor”  p. 116)     

(Are they standing on dead orcs?! or perhaps a symbolic Glaurung for Fingon?)

Also, heh, Fingon’s boots have heels, but maybe he needed them for standing next to Maedhros the Tall.  ;)

anonymous asked:

do you think Peter Jackson will ever make a movie of the Silmarillion?

christopher tolkien will literally be dead before that happens

seriously, though. you will have to pry that book from his cold dead hands before he coughs over movie rights

I found the cutest little spot to draw/write/read in the hotel grounds! The English weather is behaving nicely out here and I think I’m gonna finish reading The Silmarillion. Ngl, been needing to relax for a while now. It feels like I haven’t stopped to breathe in a year. Would you guys like to see more of my travels? I could keep a separate tag for it, or maybe this kind of thing should stay on Instagram? Hmmm…
