My favorite story is that one time Tolkien was with some writer friends and he was like “oh I’ve got a new story to show you guys” and one of them was like “as long as it’s not more fucking elves”

and it was

it was more fucking elves

Don’t adventures ever have an end? I suppose not.

me: holy shit

The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring
Book II, Chapter Ten- The Breaking of the Fellowship

True-hearted Men, they will not be corrupted.  We of Minas Tirith have been staunch through long years of trial.  We do not desire the power of wizard-lords, only strength to defend ourselves, strength in a just cause.  And behold! in our need chance brings to light the Ring of Power.  It is a gift, I say; a gift to the foes of Mordor.  It is mad not to use it, to use the power of the Enemy against him. 

"It’s a strange thing, but when you are dreading something, and would give anything to slow down time, it has a disobliging habit of speeding up."


These are a few of my favourite things: Captain America: The First Avenger (2011)

…Good becomes great; bad becomes worse. This is why you were chosen. Because the strong man who has known power all his life, may lose respect for that power, but a weak man knows the value of strength, and knows…compassion.

Like a heartbeat drives you mad.
In the stillness of remembering.

The past a new and uncertain w o r l dA world of endless possibilities. And infinite outcomes.
