We interrupt your regular fandom-mixing blog for an actual book-related post.

Bold of you to assume he would ever get knots in his hair.

I wonder what JRR Tolkien would think if he was alive today and found out people were salivating over and sexually craving the Orcs he created.

Tolkien: Lewis, are you seeing this shit? These people want to fornicate with the animalistic allegories of evil I have created! Is there no morality left on this earth?

C.S Lewis, also revived and remembering that furries based on Aslan exist: No, none.

The master of lore that is Tolkien would do that.

Hope this helps

I had a revelation, and I thought I’d share it. Here’s the thing: I don’t consider myself an attractive person. I believe people when they tell me I look good, but in my mind I’m sure I’ve just created the right momentary combination of clothes and hair to fool everyone into thinking I’m attractive, and I’ll return to my natural unattractive state at the end of the day. This is my thought process and maybe you share it.

Then, I was thinking about it one day, wondering why I’m like this, and it occurred to me. I’ve seen pictures of my parents when they were younger. Objectively speaking, they were attractive people.

I look like them. I have my dad’s nose and eyes. I have my mom’s mouth. If they’re attractive, what does that make me?

I also have a brother, and I may be biased, but again, objectively speaking, he is definitely good looking. I share many of his features, too.

So it stands to reason, if these people are attractive, I must be, as well. It’s a weird way to think about it, but for those of you who can see attractiveness in anyone but yourself, maybe this will help you next time you look in the mirror. You’re attractive, too.

dbdspirit:

In response to the NSFW ban being enacted by Tumblr Staff, on December 17th 2018 I propose that we all log off of our Tumblr accounts for 24 hours. 


The lack of respect and communication between staff and users is stark. Users have been begging staff to delete the porn bot outbreak, which has plagued the website for well over a year. The porn bots oftentimes send people asks and messages, trying to get them to go to a website full of viruses. They also spam advertisements on others posts.  

Users have also begged that Tumblr ban neo-nazis, child porn, and pedophiles, all which run rampant on the site. The site/app got so bad that it was taken off the app store.

However, instead of answering the users, Tumblr has instead taken the liberty to ban all NSFW content, regardless of age. But users have already run into issues of their SFW content being marked as sensitive and being flagged as NSFW, not allowing them to share their work.

Not only does this discriminate again content creators, but it also discriminates against sex workers. Disgustingly, the ban will be enacted on December 17 which is also International Day to End Violence Against Sex Workers.

This ban is disgusting, and while I (and plenty of others) welcome porn bots and child porn being banned, the Tumblr filtration system is broken. It tags artistic work’s nipples as NSFW (when it is art), it tags SFW art as NSFW (when it is not), and does not stop the porn bots, neo-nazis and dozens of other issues.


This ban is discriminatory. This ban is ineffective. This ban is unacceptable. 


To protest, log off of your Tumblr account for the entirety of December 17th. Log off at 12 am EST or 9PM PST and stay off for 24 hours. Don’t post. Don’t log on. Don’t even visit the website. Don’t give them that sweet ad revenue. 

Tumblr’s stock has already taken a hard hit. Let’s make it tank. Maybe then they will listen to the users. 


Reblog to signal boost! We must force change.
