I found something in the goblin cave…
This moment. THIS is one of the most emotional scenes in the entire movie for me. It’s when Bilbo killed an innocent creature in order to get the Ring, his precious, back. The creature in Mirkwood did not come out of its hiding to take the Ring from Bilbo. It was waking up and going about its business and happened to tread over the One Ring. Bilbo showed no mercy and killed the created in cold blood, only to realise afterwards what he had done. Although hobbits are very resilient to its evil, it will not leave them unaffected. Knowing that it eventually will be passed down to Frodo and corrupt his heart, well it breaks me.
idk i hate when people only care about diagnosed mental illness sufferers
If someone thinks they have a mental illness they need to go to the doctor. They absolutely do not deserve any sort of empathy or sympathy for an illness they’re not diagnosed with, in therapy for, managing with medication, etc. This trend of self diagnosing is exactly the same as ‘wannarexics’ and incredibly hurtful to people that are actually mentally ill.and this is exactly why I made that post. not everyone has the money to go to some expensive doctor just for a diagnosis. not everyone has health insurance. and even if you do that can exclude certain parts of treatment. so for those who’s only form of therapy is research, they DO deserve empathy and more affordable (or even free) outlets. also, if you would’ve taken the time to READ THE TAGS you would see that I wrote this not in support of self diagnosis but in support of people who need treatment but can’t get it.

Fuck it is true, I’ve done it myself.

This is funny, it really is, because there’s such a grain of truth to it, and I think we all need to laugh at ourselves. But come on. Writers (and artists) are magicians of the highest order. From nothing, they make something, they make whole worlds appear. Writers deserve our respect and adoration, and FAN FIC writers - well honestly. They do it for free, from the goodness in their hearts, from the passion in their soul. All the love to the sorcerers of word and image.
And how DO you describe how your beloved smells? Unless you are a professional perfume maker, what language do you have at your command to describe them? I think once you get past clean or sweaty, musky, and delicious — what’s left? They smell like the toothpaste or detergent they use that smells unique on them. They smell like home. They smell like your dreams come true. Smell is such a primal, basic way we connect to the world, and yet unlike the Eskimo’s vocabulary to describe the many qualities of snow, we don’t have THAT many words to describe scent.
As a writer, I find that frustrating. Sometimes you can be wildly creative in describing something in your fic, and sometimes you gotta grab a cliche that fucking works and fucking move on, or the damn story is not going to get written.
I skipped this the first two times I saw it on my dash, because ugh, more posts mocking fanfic writing? No thanks. But this commentary is spot-on. Yes, this. So much this.
he inhaled his scent. he smelled of (ingredient 1), (ingredient 2) and something undefinable, that was uniquely (name of buttsex partner)
So my friend came into school one day wearing a dress that had straps and the vice principal came up to her and said “You need to either change or cover your shoulders up because it’ll distract the boys” to which she replied “Well I find boys faces distracting, do they have to cover them up?” and the vice principal said “Maybe you should focus in class more.”
If that doesn’t tell you that things are messed up, then I don’t know what does.
