Celebrimbor looked at the elfking curiously. It was rare to find one so powerful among the Sindar, though it was nice to see them none the less. She stepped forwards on silent feet observing him trying to figure out how he would react to her presence. Once she got in front of him she bowed.

“I request permission to stay here for a time to work with your smiths, if it meets with your approval King Thranduil.”

Dashing through the snow
In a one ram open sleigh
O'er fields we go
Screaming all the way
Helms on orc scum ring
Making spirits bright
What fun it is to kill and sing
A slaying song tonight!

Jingle dongs, mithril thongs,
Acorns are so gay.
Thorin dies and Bilbo cries
on a cold-ass winters day, hey!
Bagginshield is so real
Hear the fandom scream:
We don’t want more Legolas
In the EE

NOT QUITE OUR USUAL POST…

But we wanted to share with you that we’re excited to be supporting the work of the famous Belgian street artist, ROA!

ROA is currently visiting Nelson, New Zealand (where our studio is), and has been commissioned to create artwork on some buildings here.

His style is clearly unique, and he takes inspiration from local wildlife. He keeps his identity secret, so we can’t tell you anymore, but we can’t wait to see what he comes up with here in Nelson!

Drunken Caroling

Pairing: Newt Scamander x Reader

A/N: Jingle Bells is an awesome carol and I’m in no way hating on it. Just putting a slight twist on it and I think it turned alright! Ish. Let me know what you think! @milavee This one’s for you :D

Fluff-o-meter: Giggle water meets Christmas songs



You slammed your glass down on the table and put it with the growing number of empty glasses in front of you. 8 to be exact. You threw your head back with raucous laughter and couldn’t help but turn to your side and slapped Jacob’s arm.

Newt, as well as the others at the table, gave you mixed looks. Tina and Queenie’s faces held small smiles at your antics. Jacob laughed right along with you with his own set of empty glasses in front of him.

“It was a–HAHAHA–good one wasn’t it?!” he managed to say under a fit of giggles.

“It most certainly–HAHAHA–was!” as another giggle set you both off into another bout of laughter. The pleasant buzz of the bar created a comfortable environment for you to enjoy yourself as loudly as you pleased.

The last inhabitant at the table wasn’t quite sure what to do with himself. He’d seen you drink before but never this much and especially not in public. With everyone else joining at the bar it didn’t seem so bad but he still tried to process it all.

Newt wasn’t usually one to be out and about for social calls but you’d insisted seeing as it was your first Christmas in America. With that, he complied and wasn’t sure if he regretted not doing this sooner or if it would’ve been better to stay home instead.

You snapped your attention towards Newt.

“We’re having fun, aren’t we?!” you nearly screamed into his ear.

He flinched at the volume of your voice and you covered your mouth with your hands in slight regret.

“We’re having fun, aren’t we?” you whispered through your fingers.

Everyone at the table laughed at your childish response and you immediately relaxed knowing that at least, at that moment, everyone was indeed having fun.

Newt could only stare at you in amazement in those few moments. After many years of knowing each other your childlike innocence would take his breath away. He took one your hands in his, content to have the slightest of physical contact with you.

“Perhaps, a little too much?” he replied.

You didn’t shy away from his touch as you normally would have. The empty glasses before you made sure of that.

“Not at all! In fact, the only way to end this night properly is to finish it off with some Christmas cheer in the form of song!” Your voice almost resumed its previous level in your excitement.

Queenie clapped her hands together in anticipation. “I just love carols so much! They can really brighten up your day, you know?” she said. She stared at you for a moment listening to your thoughts. “Oh, that’s my second favourite one to sing, Y/N!”

Your eyes grew to the size of saucers in elation. 

“Get out! Really?? Wait, second? It’s only the best carol of all time, thank you very much.” you stated matter-of-factly as you crossed your arms.

“Would someone tell me what we’re talking about here?” Jacob asked in confusion.

“Queenie can’t fully appreciate the brilliance of Jingle Bells.” you explained. You took a deep breath, “Here goes nothing!”

“Dashing through the snow
In a thestral open sleigh
O'er the fields we goooooo
Laughing to and fro (HAHAHA)

Bells on Frank’s tail ring
Making spirits light (like lightning, adding your own echo)
What fun it is to ride this thing
While singing songs toniiiiiight!”

Silence blanketed the entire bar. In your drunken state you didn’t realise that everyone there had stopped to listen to your performance. After a few more moments of silence, everyone cheered and clapped in merriment at your attempt of the song. You stood up proudly and curtsied with a bit of a wobble. Newt grabbed ahold of your shoulders and sat you back down in your seat.

“And there you have it, the best Christmas carol in the world. End-all.” You smiled goofily at everyone with droopy eyes. The rest of the group saw how much your drinks from earlier were taking it’s toll on you and decided to call it a night. Jacob helped Queenie and Tina with their jackets and Newt did the same with yours. You immediately wound your arms around his waist and snuggled your face into his chest. 

“Definitely worth it,” Newt mused.

He embraced you in return and lovingly kissed the top of your head. 

“Best. Carol. Ever.” you yawned.

Jingle Bells - Lyrics
↳ 7/8

Jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh
Jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh
(hey!)

Dashing through the snow
In a one horse open sleigh
Over the fields we go
Laughing all the way
Bells on bob tail ring
Making spirits bright
What fun it is to ride and sing
A sleighing song tonight

Jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh (hey!)
Jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh

A day or two ago
I thought I’d take a ride
And soon, Miss Kelly Brook
Was seated by my side
The horse was lean and lank
Misfortune seemed his lot
He got into a drifted bank
And then we got upsot

Jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh (hey!)
Jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh

Jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh
Jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh
(sleigh, sleighh, sleighhh, sleighhhh! woo!)

(1-2-3-4!)
Jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh (hey!)
Jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh
A one horse open sleigh

Merry Christmas!
(brad you sly dog…. winter dog)

Look at what I created!

The Ring of Rassilon! :D

3D printed in stainless steel, the device on the face of the Ring has been reversed to allow for pressing into wax for sealing purposes.

It turned out fantastically, though since I don’t know the first thing about ringmaking it sits loosely on all my non-thumb fingers. HOWEVER, it looks really cool, and now I need some sealing wax to test it on.

I can put this up on shapeways for people to buy, but I haven’t figured out yet how to get appropriate ring-sizes, so once I figure that out.

Happy New Year from Middle Earth!

Happy 2014 from us here at The Ringmaker in Nelson, New Zealand - and welcome new followers, it’s lovely to meet you!

As always, we love feedback, so if there’s anything you want to see from us, let us know :)  It’s great to get the opportunity to chat with fans. 

Best wishes for the New Year!
