I don’t think I’ve ever had an experience so traumatizing as discovering that one of the most beautiful libraries I’ve ever seen has been hidden in someone’s house in my town for 11 years and I didn’t even know it existed.
Tolkien was able to draw.
When J.R.R. Tolkien wrote The Hobbit, he was already an accomplished amateur artist, and drew illustrations for his book while it was still in manuscript. The Hobbit as first printed had ten black-and-white pictures, two maps, and binding and dust jacket designs by its author. Later, Tolkien also painted five scenes for color plates, which comprise some of his best work. His illustrations for The Hobbit add an extra dimension to that remarkable book, and have long influenced how readers imagine Bilbo Baggins and his world.
Steven Moffat Appreciation
One of the most touching tributes to come out of the Doctor Who 50th special was the one to the fans through the character of Osgood. There, in the background of what was the most important negotiation in history, without anyone noticing, Osgood saved the world.
She could have easily sabotaged the Doctor’s plan by telling Kate to check her pockets, but instead of choosing to divide, Osgood chose to be kind. Becoming the bridge, the one who was willing to connect with what everyone had been so afraid of.
She had been neither cruel nor cowardly. And I think that’s why Steven wrote her in wearing the scarf. Because, really, anyone, anywhere, through kindness and courage, can be the Doctor. If that’s not the greatest tribute to the fandom, I don’t know what is.

shrimp are referred to as an abomination four times more than homosexuality is in the bible
“This is all your fault, Prongs.”
“It would have gone fine if you had just STAYED IN THE CAR.”
Shit guys, please tell me that Moony got away…
You either like me or you don’t. It took me twenty-something years to learn how to love myself, I don’t have that kinda time to convince somebody else.
Everyone had a hole to fill. Always hungry for more. More love, more money, more sex, more power. Practically clawing at the walls. Even the ones laughing with friends had insecurity written all over their faces. They had to perform. To prove they were going places, to prove they were interesting. Human beings were just so human. It was both the best and worst thing about them.
