SO MUCH CUTE!
For those who do not understand…:
Legolas: Ada, Why is it that this moose looks slightly different from yours?
Thranduil: It is because, just like you, he hasn’t grown up yet. Once he grows up, his antlers will grow as well.
Legolas: ~~ really?
I think the ring affected him in ways we can’t imagine.
he looks like the love child of martin freeman and a christmas elfomg^
Here’s the thing that broke my heart:
In “The Sign of Three,” Sherlock calls Mycroft right before his best man speech, telling him that it’s not too late to attend the wedding, which is ridiculous and out of character for Sherlock, because Mycroft’s right, John and Mary wouldn’t really want Mycroft there. So why did Sherlock call? Mycroft recognizes Sherlock’s anxiety (about the wedding, about the future, about his best man speech, etc.) and so he reminds Sherlock of “Redbeard.” At that point, we didn’t understand what that meant yet. But Sherlock reacted dismissively, telling Mycroft that he continues to infantilize him.
Then, in “His Last Vow,” we find out that in a moment of crisis, as Sherlock is desperately trying to stay alive and going into shock, Sherlock forces himself to seek a calming memory (tellingly, the forcible voice of his mind is Mycroft). And in that moment, he finds Redbeard, revealed to be his childhood dog. His dog comes to him in this moment of crisis, and comforts him as dogs do. Oh my god, my heart.
So, what Sherlock dismisses as an infantilizing, patronizing mention by Mycroft was actually his brother’s attempt to calm Sherlock as he uncharacteristically reaches out to Mycroft in a moment of anxiety at the wedding.
However, I don’t think Sherlock will really see Mycroft as someone who cares for him deeply, as their relationship is such that Sherlock always seems to think the worst of him.
This is the only time you will see me use proper capitalization.
Elvenking of the Woodland Realm; a vigilant and prudent ruler of a deteriorating race for over three thousand years. He made a few choices in The Hobbit, made a few decisions that suddenly seem be looked down upon by hundreds of readers.
I don’t know why this happens. Either people are woobifying the dwarves and labeling anyone who acts against them as an egotistical and deprecating tyrant—or they’re just not reading the books carefully enough.
Regardless, I feel like it needs to be discussed.
Follow me, children, and let’s talk about Thranduil.
In recent months within the Hobbit fandom, I’ve greatly enjoyed seeing all the appreciation for Thranduil, yet I’ve also seen him get a whole lot of flack. I’ve seen him labeled a jerk. Some people are jerks just to be jerks, but Thranduil is not one of them. There are reasons behind the decisions he makes, and they are often very sensible reasons. Right now, Thranduil is my baby, and I will gladly back him up.
If anyone disagrees with me, that’s perfectly fine. If anyone agrees with me, that’s perfectly fine. I’m not looking for debate, I’m just putting my thoughts out there. Here shall be my two cents.
