i love bilbo because he’s the sort of character that has absolutely no business being a hero. he’s nervous, rude, occasionally self-centered, fearful and really has none of the traits that too often define the “hero” archetype.
but bilbo baggins who misses his books and isn’t quite sure how to hold a sword, (if he’s allowed to think of it as a sword at all), and fancies himself a barrel-rider ends up dramatically impacting middle-earth not through his sheer strength, exceptional courage or brilliant wit, but with his kindness, mercy, intelligence and above all, goodness.
#100% yes#bilbo packs up his bags and travels the world with a bunch of people he has just met not only because he’s seduced by the idea of adventure#but the fact that he recognises their sense of duty and desperation to take back their home#and bilbo has always had warmth and comfort and a home#to him the thought of not having any of that is worth risking his life time and time again#he wants the dwarves to be happy and content and warm and UNAFRAID#all in all bilbo is a really decent guy (x)
how am i not tired of reading about the same two people falling in love in 5000 different ways yet
My son’s teacher is a Whovian and he missed three days of school to go to Gallifrey One this year. If you miss more than two days, you need a doctor’s note or the absence is unexcused. This is his Doctor’s note. It definitely will not be the one she’s expecting.
The Great Unanswered Question:
What the hell happens to every country on the planet that isn’t the US in YA dystopias
the doctor has a secret he’ll take to the grave [x]

The adventures of Lady Who Is Also a Knight and Willowy Poet Boyfriend! I like to think that they just play dumb medieval pranks on each other all the time. Willowy Poet Boyfriend usually does not grasp that she is pranking him until it is too late. He tries to get back at her by composing a catchy lay about how obsessed she is with pegging, and then realizes what he has done only when people start to look at him funny on the street. Willowy Poet Boyfriend is not the master of pranks.
Will Lady Who Is Also a Knight win her jousting match? Will I ever escape from relying on anachronisms for humor value? Will these adventures actually continue? Does reversing an established binary qualify as true transgression? The questions are endless! TUNE IN NEXT TIME (IF THERE IS A NEXT TIME) FOR MORE QUESTIONS AND NO ANSWERS
why aren’t we talking about this
That they all have a power beyond his own, a power
beyond the reach of any magic, is a truth he has never grasped.
They took 4 women off the streets and made them cover models.
Definitely an interesting take on all those photoshop videos out there.
I like this one a lot.
This is absolutely beautiful.

friends turned lovers is literally my favorite trope - like, all other tropes can go home.
give me shared inside jokes that date back to wayyyyy before a first kiss was ever shared. give me living together with separate bedrooms until one of them gradually becomes unnecessary. give me confused reactions from people who already assumed the two of them were dating. give me arguments over what counts as an anniversary because should we start at the date we met or the date we became friends or the date we got over our stupid selves and finally started kissing?
give me stories that show the line between friends and lovers is a really, really thin one - that appreciating the friendship that two characters share doesn’t mean you can’t ship them really damn hard too. that you can keep all the awesome friends-being-assholes-to-each-other stuff and add on all the shippy stuff to get something extra special awesome.
give me all of that.
