I Can’t Be the Only One

Sometimes when I see BotFA I misread it as BotFLy

I cannot wait to see BotFLy.

Meet the Ainur Introduction Survey

teamainur:

So we just did a round of introductions, but here is one to let your Tolkien appreciation take over and get you into the party mood! Just reblog and add/replace your answers. And tag with #ainurparty

  • First Tolkien Book: The Hobbit (My dad read a suped up  version that probably included mermaids when I was 6 and younger.) All I remember of that is the book he read from had a map in it. 
  • Age at First Reading: 19 I think, Fellowship of the Ring. I had all but forgotten my dad reading The Hobbit to me.
  • Who/What Introduced You?: Technically my dad, but since I barely remember that I’ll say Peter Jackson.
  •  First Favorite Character:  Probably Arwen due to her being in the first movie and the only person I could relate to. Either her or Gimli.
  • First Movie: Fellowship of the Ring. If I saw the cartoon movies before then I don’t remember it.
  • Special Memory with Tolkien: One of the few good memories I have of my dad. (Let’s just say he wan’t the best type of person and leave it at that.)

CURRENT EVENTS                           

  • Currently Reading (By Tolkien): The Silmarillion. Um… I need to get a move on that. It’s week 2 and I haven’t read week 1 yet. ><
  • Fan of the Movies?: Yep!
  • Plan to Read Next: Let me actually start the Silmarillion first then finish then. Theeen I’ll decide what to read next. 

FAVORITES

  • Story: Don’t have one yet. I actually suck at reading. By chapter 5 I don’t remember 25% of chapter 1. (I have ADD.)
  • Race/Culture: Tie between Elves and Dwarves.
  • Male Character: Boromir
  • Female Character: Eowyn
  • Romantic Relationship: Faramir and Eowyn
  • Friendship: Legolas and Gimli
  • Location: Rohan
  • Battle: Battle of Pelennor Fields.
  • Song: Whatever it is Pippin sings. As for in the books. I don’t remember what I read very well. 
  • Of the Trilogy: Movie-wise Return of the King, maybe or Two Towers. I have read the books, years ago but honestly I don’t remember what all was different between them and the movies. 
  • Member of the Fellowship: Gimli
  • Villain: Grima (odd choice, I know.)
  • Elf: Um…all of them? I need to read more to decide.
  • Dwarf: All of them.
  • Man/Woman: Didn’t I already answer this? I need to read all the books to have a true favorite. Part of me wants to say the unnamed wives and mothers of the Numenoreans and well any unnamed wife or mother. Thanks Tolkien. Arwen and Aragorns daughters too.
  • Hobbit: Sam
  • Valar: Varda, I like stars. Followed by Vana, because let’s face it, if ever there was a Disney Princess of the Valar, she’s it. 
  • Maiar: Olorin (Gandalf)
  • Other: Tom Bombadil, because he’s just so random.
  • Tolkien Quote: Not all those who wander are lost.

  • First Tolkien Book:  The Hobbit
  • Age at First Reading: My Dad read the Hobbit to me when I was little (under 6). He added his own spin to it. All I remember now is the book had a map in it. Reading on my own - Fellowship of the Ring, after the movie so I think 19.
  • Who/What Introduced You?: My Dad, but I really don’t remember it. So I’m going to say Peter Jackson.

Um I can’t see anymore in the reblog. .It just has the two questions I answered and then a bullet and … So.. I’ll post this and edit to answer the rest later. 

I’m on chrome. 

So I was in my Grandparents’ yard squatted down behind some bushes towards the house digging up some rocks. (To put around some flowers in my own yard.) I then hear yelling. I peek up and see this woman in scrubs (bright pink pants and a patterned top) has stopped her white car and is yelling at a man in a jersey who is taller than her. “Gimme my phone! Gimme my God damn phone!” Scuffling ensues. I stay hidden.

*IDEA!*
I’m filming this shit. I haul up and make it for the house (Ok I’m actually a good ways from them and there’s an entire POND in the way, so I just walk fast.) Well my damn phone would NOT cooperate. My grandparents were under the carport by the house watching the whole thing. There was something white by the pond. My pop thought it might be a dead duck. (It happens, ducks are dumb as bricks and the pond is right by the road). I went to go see what it was. My gran yelling at me not to go. 

Pfft this is our yard I’ll go where I damn well please. The car had gone by then. 

So I found this jersey. I picked it up with a stick. I’m not touching that. No thanks. My gran yelling at me to “Put that down, he might come back and get it!”
Gotta love when a hard-of-hearing family member won’t wait for you to come within earshot to explain yourself. My apologies to my neighbors. >< Geez. Give me a damn minute. 

First - Don’t fight in someone else’s yard. 
Second - Don’t fight in the street. Seriously wtf? You could be hit by a car.
Third - Don’t take shit that isn’t your’s. If that phone belongs to the lady, give it back.
Fourthly - If you wish to keep something, don’t leave it behind. Mine now bitch. 

Learn some common fucking decency, and hire a psychologist or something. I care not for you, your phone or your problems. Go by a new jersey. This one’s going up in flames next time we burn our trash. You act trashy, we treat you (or at least your things) like trash. 

Buh-bye. 

Wendy&#8217;s, no.

Wendy’s, no.

HOLY SWEET SOMMERSAULTING BABY EONWE!

Hearken to me, ye Silmarillion Fandom! Celebrimbor is the wraith in Shadows of Middle-Earth! I am sorry tyelpings but I am very much in agreement at least with that sexy voice of his!

I imagine him as way younger and naive-looking. This older, sterner Tyelpe is something I like!

Wait a minute… who is…

OH

MY

GOD!!

WE HAVE ANNATAR!!! THIS IS NOT A DRILL!!

HOLY AINU FUCKING SON OF A SNARKY BASTARD

I was very unsure about the idea of Celebrimbor but

SJADASUFJEUTH#&($@&*#&@*CNHFDJHFSDNFJKSDNFKSDl

HOLY SHIT WE HAVE CELEBRIMBOR AND ANNATAR

THIS IS NOT A DRILL, I REPEAT THIS IS NOT A DRILL

HOW HAVE I NOT HEARD OF THIS

OH MY GOD

I’M IN TEARS AND CAN’T BREATHE ERU TAKE THE WHEEL

I don’t play video games. I can’t afford them, much less a gaming system. I still have an old timey Nintendo.

I’m just waiting for someone to do a play-through on youtube.

Uinen - painted back in 2006 for the week one prompt.
I messed up her chin a bit. I had it in my head at the time that since she lived in the waters, she wouldn&#8217;t need a nose.
(In unrelated news I hate to say I still need to read past the letter in the front of my copy&#8230;)

Forgot to do a selfie. Have Chaos, mstifferooski's cat with a plastic coat hanger instead.
