Morag laughs.

Laughs in Palpatine’s increasingly enraged face. Laughs until her sides hurt and she’s nearly bent double with the force of the hilarity wracking her frame. Laughs until she’s sobbing for breath - because that is simply one of the most ridiculous things she’s ever heard.

Laughs, because she knows that it wouldn’t have made one fucking bit of difference if she’d kept Obi-Wan instead of sending him to the Temple. Palpatine would still have launched his take-over. Would still have been willing to wade through blood and over corpses to achieve his goals. Would still have managed, by hook or by crook, to malign the Jedi on the galactic stage - the people who are even now cursing the Jedi? If they are foolish enough to believe that the Jedi would ever have turned against them, they would have believed as such eventually anyway.

But Obi-Wan, as a Jedi, has helped people. Has saved worlds. Has been - and still remains - a light in dark places. And for all that both mother and son are imprisoned, Palpatine does not have them.

“. . . third bizarre death at Hefner’s Playboy Mansion . . .”

Sam paused his research to absorb the latest details from CNN.

“Anything?” Dean asked.

“Yes, the victims all connect to a model who died in the seventies. Could be a spirit. But how would we get in there?”

“You could pass as a model.”

Sam sighed, mildly aggravated, but Dean needed to work harder.

“You’d look real sexy in a bikini.”

Dean.”

“With floppy ears, and the tail, you’d be smokin’!”

Sam’s annoyance mounted, seeing where this was going. “Don’t!” he warned.

“Then you’d be – ”

“Don’t say it.”

“You know you want me to.”

No!”

Dean grinned triumphantly. “A hot, cross bunny!”

If Marvel is humans becoming gods, DC is gods becoming human. And this is that done right. This reminded me of what’s wonderful about DC and why its characters are still timeless. When done correctly, it blends myth with reality, the ordinary with the extraordinary, mortal with immortal. It’s the closest we have to current Greek mythology. It’s honest. It’s powerful. It lasts forever. This is the movie that made me remember why I love DC in the first place.

NC: Wonder Woman

This is honestly the most genuinely happy I think I’ve ever seen the Nostalgia Critic :D

Even a man who basically lives on a diet of rage and snark thinks that Wonder Woman is a FRICKING AMAZING MOVIE

PLEASE HELP ME BUY FOOD!!

Hey Tumblr 

I’m a mentally ill, 20+ year old who is in a horribly desperate situation and I’m really sorry to post ‘another’ one of these but, I really, really need money to buy food/toiletries.  As many know, I have been on benefit’s which were suspended for 6 weeks due to me being rejected for a job because of my mental health. I get paid on the 25th which will be just under £200, all of which will need to go to my rent for the month of August. *I’m already going to court on the 1st of August about my rent arrears, so I can’t afford not to pay it*. I also have a nutrient deficiency from lack of proper food, so I really, really need help. The few amazing people who have donated to me have allowed me to eat thus far, but without any further help, I won’t make it. And I can’t get any help from anywhere else e.g food banks/government.

And Tumblr, I know this is a lot to ask but if you can spare a few £’s/$’s to help me buy some food/toiletries it would mean the world to me.

PayPal.me is the best option for me http://ift.tt/2csp51P and for $/€ donations, gemma.mcdonald90@gmail.com or via the PayPal icon on my blog. Even if you can’t donate please, please signal boost this in hopes that someone else may be able to. Thank you ❤❤❤

There needs to be an emoji for “sorry I took such an embarrassingly long time to respond to you; at first I was in the middle of something, and then I forgot about your message, and then I remembered but there had already been an awkward gap of time, and then I felt so crappy for not replying that it was easier to put it out of my mind, and then it kept lurking in the back of my head and making me feel guilty every time I remembered that I needed to reply, and then I just felt stupid because normal people don’t get anxiety spirals around responding to a friend, and now I’m mustering all my courage to reply belatedly, but I’m terrified that you’re secretly judging me for being such a failure at human interaction.”

guys, we need to talk about eowyn

So I get really narky when people pull the whole ‘oh Eowyn’s storyline came to such a sucky ending; she was really cool going around killing orcs and Witch-Kings and then she got shoved into a traditional girly role by marrying Faramir and becoming a healer’ thing, because no. No-no-no-no-no. Not only does that stray dangerously into the territory of ‘women only have worth if they’re doing traditionally blokey things’, but that misses almost the entire point of Lord of the Rings.

Tolkien was in the trenches in the first world war, right? He got all that ‘for death and glory’ shit shoved down his throat, that was the whole point about the war, it was when so many people came to see how awful and misleading all the propaganda about winning glory through violence and death was. And Tolkien’s work completely shows that: it’s why the hobbits, who’ve never craved power or battle the way men do, are the heroes of the book; it’s why strong men like Aragorn and Faramir are shown to be lovers of peace rather than war. It’s why the quote - but I do not love the bright sword for its sharpness, nor the arrow for its swiftness, nor the warrior for his glory; I love only that which they defend – is so poignant and beautiful, when seen in the context of all Tolkien had gone through. He’d seen all but one of his closest friends die in an utterly pointless war; the prevalent message in his books is ‘if you’re going to have that many people die, let it be for something worth dying for.’ (Like defending your home from the lord of all darkness, for example.)

And Eowyn might be a fantastic female character, but she’s also got so much development to go through, and she’s by no means perfect. I find it really interesting that when Eowyn talks to Aragorn about wanting to go off and fight she never really actually mentions protecting her people, but speaks about wanting to ‘face peril and battle’, and to do ‘great deeds’. And it’s not that Eowyn doesn’t want to protect her people, because of course she does, but she’s also got such a driving motivation within her to do glorious and fell deeds simply for the sake of valour and renown. It’s one of her defining features, having an attitude that got so many young men killed in the war and which, obviously, Tolkien would have been very wary of.

(Also, I think, there’s so much in Eowyn that wants to prove herself to be more than ‘a mere woman’; because twice in that conversation she asserts that she’s no mere ‘dry-nurse’ or ‘serving-woman’, but a member of the house of Eorl and therefore capable of greater things. There’s almost this slight sense of Eowyn considering herself more than ‘just’ a domesticated woman that I sometimes get from her in the books? Which is very sad - the idea of Eowyn having less regard for others of her sex who do mind the house or raise the children - and why I so love that ‘I am no man’ moment in RotK. Eowyn’s no longer hiding herself, or dismissing fellow women as the weaker sex, but acknowledging and embracing the fact that women in all their forms can fuck you up.)

And then we reach the Houses of Healing, and Eowyn yearning for death in battle just like her Uncle Theoden, and basically buying into that whole world war one ethos that Tolkien would have considered so poisonous. Which is why her friendship and courtship with Faramir is so fricking beautiful. Remember that quote I wrote earlier? That’s from Faramir. He’s not backing down from conflict, he’s in no way less of a ‘real man’ than anyone else; he’s just saying there needs to be more to the fight than simply having a fight. There needs to be a reason; something worth fighting for. Eowyn recognises that Faramir is a good man in every sense of the word: he’s strong and valiant, but he doesn’t fight simply to prove himself or for the sake of winning glory, he fights for other people. And Faramir gently challenges Eowyn on her idolisation of battle-glory and encourages her not to scorn gentleness or peace, and he’s so freaking good for her.

(Seriously. Can we just stop for a moment and think about how wonderful Eowyn and Faramir are for each other: Faramir encouraging Eowyn to turn towards life and healing and openness while never denying her strength or courage, and Eowyn giving Faramir the validation and security he never got after so many years of an awful relationship with his father? I honestly don’t know why I don’t get all giddy about these two more often, because they make the very best otp.)

And the result of the departure of the Shadow and her friendship with Faramir is Eowyn’s decision that ‘I will be a shieldmaiden no longer, nor vie with the great Riders, nor take joy only in the songs of slaying. I will be a healer, and love all things that grow and are not barren.’

I think that last bit is so important because I’m certain that Tolkien doesn’t mean for Eowyn to immediately pack up her sword and shield and become a good girl sitting at home with her knitting and waiting for the men to return home after the fight – after all, she’s going to be the wife of the Steward of Gondor and there’s a lot of mess to clean up after the War of the Ring. Eowyn’s probably still going to find herself defending hearth and home from time to time. But the important thing is that she’s no longer defining herself simply by the doing of valiant deeds; she’ll no longer compare herself to the great warriors of her house and feel lacking simply because she hasn’t killed as many men. Most importantly, she’s not going to take joy only in the songs of the slaying, in destruction and death. Tolkien was all about healers symbolising life and rebirth, and Eowyn’s decision to become one – to aid in the preservation of life rather than the taking of it – is so beautiful. I don’t think Tolkien ever wrote Eowyn’s ending to make her reclaim her ‘lost femininity’; I think it’s a lovely way of adding to the ever-present theme in Lord of the Rings of hope and frailty and healing and friendship over glory and battle and strife.

Hello everyone,

My sister just IM’ed me this morning. She’s found a flight between Venezuela and Aruba, and then from Aruba to the US. This trek would get her out of Venezuela before the change in Constitution that starts on July 31st, which will lead to more political upheaval and is making flies get filled extremely fast as Venezuelans migrate. 

Her problem is that she won’t have enough money for the second flight until next week, and she’s very worried she’ll lose the opportunity. She’s already made a reservation but she’ll have to pay in 24 hours.

So, at this point in time, any help is very, very welcome, and you can support her via Ko-fi (it’s basically paypal):

Signal boosts are super welcome too. Thank you so much!
