an assorted collection of sayings and exchanges from my latest serial Tolkien dream

(since I’ve been asked by more than a few people to keep this saga updated)

“What happened to your hand?”
“See I tried to dislocate my thumb, like you taught me a long time ago? But the shackle was all spiky and I thought yanking my wrist through a spiky band of metal would be a good way to die of blood loss.”

“I mean, technically when you do the math it’s quarter-elven, one-eighth bird and one-eighth Planet Venus. But I don’t trouble myself with genealogy too much, if I did that everybody would be my cousin.”

“She’s your kid?”
“… in a manner of speaking, yes.”
“And suddenly everything makes sense. She’s got a mean right cross.”
“I’m sure you deserved it.”


“Our family has A Problem.”
“Other than that thing where insanely powerful women fall instantly in love with lesser men?”
“Being away for a few thousand years has done nothing for your sass, has it?”

“I mean I knew you could sing I just didn’t know that it exploded things.”

“I spent fucking millennia over here hoping to get away from this shit and yet here I am, once again, dealing with human wall art. I’m going home.”
“If this is what convinced you, frankly, I think it’s worth it.”
“Shut up. I haven’t forgotten that this is all your fault. You’re the one who wanted to go to the store.”

“You’ve got a whole knife in your shoulder and you look like you’re about to pass out and you’re telling me you’re going to fight all the guards at once? A ercat, no. Go sit down.”

I was supposed to post this for the last day of the Eight and Fitz week, but I had some things to do (more about that later, probably). Here’s a scene from The Taking of Planet Five, where Eight tried to survive in deep space for a couple of minutes (after the TARDIS he was aboard disintegrated) in a thin cloud of ice particles.


Deep space, in a freezing cloud of water, dying by inches and by microseconds, is possibly the only place where you can literally crack a smile.

The Doctor beamed.

I would love to about learn Neptune John she said kindly

“Neptune? Huh, lets see,” John’s fingers meet his chin as he thinks around the subject. “She’s the eighth planet from the Sun in our Solar System, the fourth-largest by diameter and the densest of the three giant gas planets we have here. In fact, Neptune is a good seventeen times the mass of the Earth. It takes her one hundred and sixty four point eight of our years to orbit the Sun and, hmm, she’s named after the Roman god of the sea.”

“Neptune isn’t visible by naked eye, has active weather patterns like Jupiter and has a faint and fragmented number of rings around her. Oh… and was discovered around 1612 by Galileo. I think that’s all the important points covered.”

On February 7, 1979, Pluto crossed over Neptune’s orbit and became the eighth planet from the sun for twenty years. A study in 1988 determined that Pluto’s path of orbit could never be accurately predicted. Labeled as “chaotic,” Pluto was later discredited from planet status in 2006.

Today, I broke your solar system. Oops.
My bad. Your graph said I was supposed
to make a nice little loop around the sun.


I chaos like a motherfucker. Ain’t no one can
chart me. All the other planets, they think
I’m annoying. They think I’m an escaped
moon, running free.

Fuck your moon. Fuck your solar system.
Fuck your time. Your year? Your year ain’t
shit but a day to me. I could spend your
whole year turning the winds in my bed. Thinking
about rings and how Jupiter should just pussy
on up and marry me by now. Your day?

That’s an asswipe. A sniffle. Your whole day
is barely the start of my sunset.

My name means hell, bitch. I am hell, bitch. All the cold
you have yet to feel. Chaos like a motherfucker.
And you tried to order me. Called me ninth.
Somewhere in the mess of graphs and math and compass
you tried to make me follow rules. Rules? Fuck your
rules. Neptune, that bitch slow. And I deserve all the sun
I can get, and all the blue-gold sky I want around me.

It is February 7th, 1979 and my skin is more
copper than any sky will ever be. More metal.
Neptune is bitch-sobbing in my rearview,
and I got my running shoes on and all this sky that’s all mine.

Fuck your order. Fuck your time. I realigned the cosmos.
I chaosed all the hell you have yet to feel. Now all your kids
in the classrooms, they confused. All their clocks:
wrong. They don’t even know what the fuck to do.
They gotta memorize new songs and shit. And the other
planets, I fucked their orbits. I shook the sky. Chaos like
a motherfucker.

It is February 7th, 1979. The sky is blue-gold:
the freedom of possibility.

Today, I broke your solar system. Oops. My bad.

How Well Do you Know Neptune?

Dark, cold and whipped by supersonic winds, Neptune is the last of the hydrogen and helium gas giants in our solar system. More than 30 times as far from the sun as Earth, the planet takes almost 165 Earth years to orbit our sun! In fact, in 2011, Neptune completed its first orbit since its discovery in 1846.

Here are a few things you might not know about the windiest planet:

  • If the sun were as tall as a typical front door, the Earth would be the size of a nickel and Neptune would be about as big as a baseball.
  • Neptune orbits our sun, a star. Neptune is the eighth planet from the sun at a distance of about 4.5 billion km (2.8 billion miles) or 30.07 AU. 
  • One day on Neptune takes about 16 hours (the time it takes for Neptune to rotate or spin once)
  • Neptune makes a complete orbit around the sun (a year in Neptunian time) in about 165 Earth years (60,190 Earth days)
  • Neptune has six rings
  • Voyager 2 is the only spacecraft to have visited Neptune
  • Neptune has 13 moons. They are named after various sea gods and nymphs in Greek mythology

Did you know that Neptune has storms?

Similar to Jupiter, Neptune has storms that create gigantic spots in its atmosphere…well, it did. When Voyager 2 flew past Neptune in 1989, it tracked and imaged the “Great Dark Spot” — a storm larger than the entire Earth! When the Hubble Space Telescope imaged Neptune the spot had disappeared, only to be replaced with two smaller storms, which in turn also disappeared.

The twelfth house is invisible, and perceived only through feelings, sacred imagery, divine intimacy and intepersonal communion. In a sense this gives a good idea of the landscape of the twelfth house. It almost exists on an incomprehensible layer in the individual, and could be perceived and understood more acutely from their company. People with a lot of eighth house planets are powerful in their imprint and leave a resonant energy, they jolt their company and arouse potent senses within them. The twelfth house on the other hand swells transparently, like a tidal wave that drifts in and out, bringing in the undercurrents of others in the process then releasing them back out in liquid energy music. People with a lot of twelfth house planets are not always profound mystics who dwell in Neptunian wonderlands. But they are individuals who live a conceivable ordained daily life and yet harbor an inconceivable depth, acute perception and innate understanding of severe suffering. They understand the psychological dynamics of people after short periods of consultation and see their own divinity through the eyes of others. Like the Sun at fall in Libra, the twelfth house weakens the expression of the signs energy wherever it is placed. It’s almost locked away, and the individual is forced to trek through its waters blinfolded and bound. It’s so weak, really, that unless the individual is spiritually engaged, it expresses through the simple daily life twelfth house person who has no idea about the profound celestial power stirring in his soul.
