hey you!

you're every nice word i can think of!

All shall fade...

"This is the story of how a Baggins had an adventure, and found himself doing and saying things altogether unexpected."

mist and shadow, cloud and shade;

"Then something Tookish woke up inside him, and he wished to go and see the great mountains, and hear the pine-trees and the waterfalls, and explore the caves, and wear a sword instead of a walking stick."


"'Go back?', he, thought, 'No good at all! Go sideways? Impossible! Go foward? Only thing to do! On we go!'"


you need only ask

Hey cutie! Don't be afraid to message me anything, ask me stuff, tell me about your day, just say hey - really anything. There are no useless messages (except anon hate) and I'm always so so happy if someone actually took the effort of typing in here just to tell me stuff!

If a message contains something obviously personal I'm always going to answer privately. If you want to make 100% sure it won't be published, just type a * in front of your message okay?

Oh, one thing: I won't answer very personal questions if you ask me on anon. There are things I don't want to publish on my blog.
I also won't follow or promo you just because you ask for it. But I will check out your blog if you want and we'll see what happens! :)

concerning cora:

Name: Cora // Location: Germany Middle Earth // Birth date & age: 19th November; 21 // Occupation: Student (Social Work) & Middle Earth enthusiast

I'm a confused human being who is no longer young enough to be considered a teenager but doesn't feel mature enough to call herself a woman. I'm 100 % sure I was actually meant to be a Hobbit and that's why I'm so utterly unable to deal with my life.

Likes: Coffee, rainy afternoons, cute animals, books, hippie clothes, chinese food, summer evenings, indie music, travelling, chocolate, board games

Until the mid-60s, the Aboriginals came under the Flora And Fauna Act, which classified them as animals, not human beings. This also meant that killing an Aboriginal meant you weren’t killing a human being, but an animal.

I hope you guys learned and teared up from this as much as I did. 

"This is a bitter adventure, if it must end so; and not a mountain of gold can amend it. Yet I am glad that I have shared in your perils - that has been more than any Baggins deserves."

"Farewell Thorin Oakenshield! And Fili and Kili! May your memory never fade!”

Círdan, also known as Nowë and Círdan the Shipwright, was a Telerin elf (of which he was one of the wisest princes), a great mariner and shipwright in Middle-earth. He was the lord of the Falas and then of the Balar during much of the First Age. Círdan was the first bearer of the Great Ring Narya, which he in turn gave to Gandalf.
