who you'll marry

I am of the firm belief that Galadriel has spent the past three ages living the rock and roll life–she partied with Nessa and had an ill-fated fling with Eonwe, basically grew herself Faerieland like a chia pet, led armies led people, threw down the walls of Dol Amroth, is definitely doing Gandalf on the side (or at least exchanging snarky running commentary with him) and yenta'ed that whole Aragorn and Arwen business–

But she always comes back to Celeborn, who has been puttering around Lorien and…watering the trees, probably, looking after their grandbabies, and he just kisses her cheek and asks how her day went, if she wants any tea, did she hear about the new entling in Fangorn? such a sweet sapling…

Now that I think about that part of my education, I often wondered what benefit my teachers thought I’d get from learning how to address a baroness or how to dance a late 18th century regency ball quadrille.

As it turns out, as I sit here writing a period style romance novel, quite a lot.

“I’m almost 19. I love my boyfriend and I just want our life to start already.”

the days when i think of the 2003 anime often are behind me but sometimes I remember the time Envy disguised as Winry randomly yelled “ALPHONSE YOU’RE THE ONE I ALWAYS LOVED” to distract Al AND IT WORKED! Al got kidnapped because of that even though Al already knew it was Envy! and I giggle.

Bc honestly I can see that happen in manga continuity only instead of being shocked Al’s reaction is  to break down into uncontrollable laughter and he’s so busy laughing he is successfully kidnapped for like five whole minutes.

He’s just armor convulsing on the ground and Envy just grabs his foot and starts dragging him away meanwhile Ed is screaming “AL PULL IT TOGETHER YOU’RE BEING KIDNAPPED” 

AND aL IS LIKE “BUT BROTHER DID YOU HEAR WHAT HE SAID”

“YES AND I HOPE YOU TWO ARE VERY HAPPY TOGETHER BUT SERIOUSLY FOCUS”

“i CAN’T IT’S TOO FUNNY”

“i SWEAR TO GOD AL”

And once he calms down Al just basically spends the whole time giving Envy a speech on why his shipping preferences are WRONG and brother and winry are OTP BC REMEMBER AL IS THEIR BIGGEST SHIPPER and once Envy’s finally like “OKAY FINE THEY’RE CUTE TOGETHER NOW WILL YOU  SHUT THE FUCK UP” and Al ‘s like “cool OK bye” and immediately busts out.

Now I actually want a series where Envy imitates people and says things in an attempt to psychologically torment them and ends up cracking them the hell up instead
