Thoughts that happen on long, boring train journeys.

markedasinfernal:

So I know that we think about Maedhros’ torment upon Thangorodrim from his perspective, or from his brothers’, or Fingon’s, or occasionally even from Fëanor’s somewhere within the Halls of Mandos.

But have we really talked about Nerdanel’s perspective?

Have we ever talked about how angry she must have been?

July 21st daily doodle sketch-like thing…
Ossë and Uinen, Maiar, servants of Ulmo, in Tolkien’s Silmarillion. Also, for the tolkienreadalong bingo.

The nice thing about the Maiar and the Valar is that they have no concrete, proscribed form or shape… so, that allows for a lot of freedom in their interpretation. And, I like randomly anthropomorphizing sea life. :D

(I’m participating in the Tolkien readalong of The Silmarillion (and I’m on Team Gondolin!) so, if you want to avoid any of the readalong stuff, the tags are “#tolkienreadalong” “#tolkienreadalong bingo” and “#teamgondolin” although, all my stuff for the readalong will probably just end up being part of my daily sketch doodle project.)

Reading the Valaquenta again for the tolkienreadalong, this line jumped out at me which I’d never really noticed before:

"He has little heed for either the past or the future, and is of no avail as a counsellor, but is a hardy friend.”

Immediately scenarios of Tulkas’ advice column leapt into my head. Thanks for trying, Tulkas.

#Viktor was obviously deeply in love with her #just remember the fact that he took her to prom #even knowing that he could’ve choose any other girl #remember how he forgot about everyone and danced with her all night #remember how he looked at her while saying ‘write to me, please’ #remember how, a few years later #on Fleur’s wedding #he danced with her one more time #probably being conscient that her heart already belonged to Ron #this is why I love Viktor Krum so much #he just enjoyed being with Hermione #and didn’t care about the future #mostly, because she wasn’t going to be a part of his.

1. Do not date a boy who does not care what your favourite song is. The boy who does not care what melodies ignite your heart strings with love and wonder while staring at passing street lights on the last train home, will not care if it’s 2 a.m. and your heart is breaking.

2. Do not let anyone fold you up like last winters tattered scarf and put you away with the others in a neatly labeled box. Even when there’s thunder and the sky is crying, you are your mum’s favourite summer dress. You are to wear yourself like you believe it.

3. We are all stories. Write yours how you want. Make today’s chapter about purposely taking the wrong bus and discovering a tiny blue tea shop, or folding origami paper hearts over and over on your window sill. Just make sure it’s something you’d enjoy reading.

4. I will always try to save you.

5. Someday you will be 19 and lost and heartbroken and you will think about a place you’ve seen on TV or heard or read about in a book or seen a picture of. You will feel your heart drop into your stomach. Go there. For a day, a month, forever, but it’s important that you go.

6. The world is so beautiful. Do not let the slumped over homeless man outside the convenience store or the stories of guns and bombs on the television let you believe otherwise. We are all so lost. All of us. We all show it in different ways. I write bad poems. Others start wars. There is no inherent evil, only good people searching too hard.

7. I love everything about you.

8. Money turns people into liars and emotional ghosts. School grades are an inaccurate representation of you. Measure your life’s worth in how many times you’ve nearly lost your life to laughter, how many books you’ve closed with happy tears in your eyes, people whose lives you’ve brought joy to, marshmallows eaten, or countries visited.

9. Don’t ever let anyone tell you to stop crying. Cry if you want to. It’s okay. You’re allowed.

10. My best friend once told me that the most important decision he had ever made was to love everyone and everything. He’s the only person I’ve ever known to have a viewable aura of light around him. Don’t forget to love this world, to love people. Be light. You are already mine.
