Thank you!

        I just wanted to pop in and say that I am currently working on that life update post right now and that it should be up sooner or later. I'm not really sure what state school is going to leave me in this week, so we'll see when I'm able to finish it up. 
        I've missed socializing with y'all! Thank you for all of your wonderful comments as well! I know I've been really bad about replying, but they have meant a lot to me and I really appreciate your support and encouragement! I've even gained a few followers without posting a ton; wonder how that happened?! :) If you're new, WELCOME! Please comment away and I'll try to reply now. 
        I have so much to tell! New school work, animals, movies... Well, I won't give it all away now. You'll have to wait in suspense and anticipation. Yes, I am cruel like that. Muahahaha. I've still been on Pinterest quite a bit, though - more than I should - so feel free to message me there or keep up with my pins. The link is on my sidebar, if you weren't already aware.
        So long for now! *insert randomly nice and feelsy picture of Tadashi. Why do all pictures of him have to be so feelsy?!*

Middle Earth Movie Meme - Day Twenty-Eight

Favorite Middle Earth-related item(s) you own

        I have this lovely paperweight up in my room. THORIN!!!

        I also have this poster, although since I don't currently have much wall space it is rolled up next to my bookshelf.

        Ehehehehe, and I also have this shirt. I love it when people get the reference. :)


Middle Earth Meme - Day Twenty-Seven

Favorite End Song

        The Last Goodbye. Because Reasons. It is so feelsy and beautiful and Billy Boyd. It completes the journey. We now go our separate ways after being together for so long. The Middle Earth saga is over. But the Fellowship will be forever bound together in friendship and in love.

        I know most of you have probably seen this AT LEAST once before, but watch it again. Remember. The only credit song I do not like is The Song of the Misty Mountains (yuck), but this one is the best.


Middle Earth Meme - Day Twenty-Six

Favorite one-on-one fight

        I don't know if this really counts as a one-on-one fight, but I pretty much failed at the whole 'post every day' thing, so I'm guessing no one really cares. Hopefully y'all still like to hear my thoughts on these wonderful movies. :) 


        Heh. See, the only one-on-one fight I could think of was the Thorin/Azog face off in BOTFA, and I didn't choose that for a couple reasons. First, I want to acknowledge that it is and amazing fight scene. I think. That's the main reason. I only got to that movie once in theaters, and by that point in the movie I was all adrenaline and violent sobbing and I'm not sure I remember it very clearly. And I was very tense. I don't like being tense. :P
        Gandalf and the Balrog is epic because of everything leading up to it, and, well, Gandalf and the Balrog. It's a short show down, but one of the most memorable. So much energy and suspense when you think it's over but (HEY!) it isn't, and then the emotion from the rest of the Fellowship when they get out of the mines is far too powerful. And the music!!!! AAAAAAHHH! Feels.

Middle Earth Movie Meme - Day Twenty-Five

Characters you wish you liked more

         But I like all the characters! Well, except the ones that I don't, but you see, that's beside the point. Not really, that just sounded good. Soary. I wish I liked Frodo more. I know it's not his fault - it's the ring - blah blah blah, but I just can't seem to like him personally. There are many great blog posts out there defending Frodo, and I agree with them. He is good. I just don't care for him as much as he deserves.

I like him a lot in the books - he's dignified and strong. In the movies, though, he's kind of a wimp. Now, before all you Frodo fans come at me, let me say I KNOW. I've heard it all before. I believe it. He is a good character and he saved Middle Earth. However. He's not my favorite. I wish I could like him, but I can't. I've tried. It has worked marginally, but that is all. :)


Middle Earth Movie Meme - Day Twenty-Four

Favorite moment/line in The Battle of the Five Armies

         The best part of the movie is also the worst. Yes, it's Thorin's death. Not the whole fight with Azog (although that was pretty epic), but the part after with Bilbo. That was one change to the book that I really loved. Yes, I'm very sentimental about this *sniff*. 'Cause Thorin remembers everything that Bilbo said before and tells him 'Go plant your trees - watch them grow' and I CAN'T. 

        And "Look, Thorin, the eagles are coming!" The last time the eagles are coming. So much memory. Oh, the feels!

        Aaaaaaaaaaaand now I'm sad. You are too. You're welcome.
