DON’T BE WARY, SHE IS AMAZING

LOOK HOW GODDAMN BEAUTIFUL

AND HOW GODDAMN CUTE, DO YOU SEE THAT NOSE?!

image

AND LOOK AT THAT OUTFIT IN THE FIRST PICTURE— THAT IS HER BEAUTIFUL GREEN WOODLAND-Y MILITARY UNIFORM OF GLORY 

also this internet poll kind of says it all:

Anyway, even though she was sort of inspired by the relationship between Galadriel and Gimli, she is definitely not just there for romance. I mean, she’s a warrior! And a really, REALLY good one. In fact, she’s the head of Mirkwood’s Elven Guard, hoLLA. She is an amazing fighter, not at all a softie when it comes to her responsibility on the guard. As the actress, Evagneline Lilly (seriously who the hell has a name that is THAT beautiful she sounds like an elf herself), said,  ”She’s slightly reckless and totally ruthless and doesn’t hesitate to kill.” She is kind of a rebel and doesn’t always obey authority. She’s very young for an elf, so she has that fire of youth in her (which is also awesome that she is hEAD OF THE ELVEN GUARD OF MIRKWOOD AT 600 WOW). Not to mention she cares about Legolas but she isn’t about to take his jealousy shit and she really doesn’t listen to him (or anyone really it’s great). She is a Silvan elf, which means she is pretty low in order and social status (much lower than Galadriel or most other Elves we’ve seen), but she is highly respected and appreciated by Thranduil, which speaks to her character. 

As far as the romance, I truly think it’s fantastic. Being involved in a romance doesn’t take away from a character or make them less dynamic! Being reduced to a romance does; and she is most certainly not. It’s so lovely, because she is a fucking badass warrior, but she is very dynamic because she feels. She does irrational things, and has cheesy  and romanticized thoughts and dreams, and she follows her heart because she trusts it. I love that. She may not always knows what she wants, but she trusts herself to have the ability to figure it out if she works toward it. She believes in herself, and she will go after what she believes she needs to.

And I mean, she is the strong one in this (potential/building) romance. This is kinda spoilery but not really— basically she is the hero and Kili is the one in distress. And I love that she is taller, because people seem to have this idea that a female can’t be taller than a male in a relationship. So without going into anything too specific, let’s just say she’ll always be the one to save the day. She is really cool too, because she looks at this Dwarf, and Elves and Dwarves are not exactly chummy, and she decides that he is worth something. That his words mean something. She’s totally ahead of her time. Lilly describes her as a “nonconformist,” and she is. She begins to break down the barriers of prejudice in her own heart.

She’s not being reduced or used as a character. If anything, the romance really adds to what we get to see of her, because it helps you realize both her strengths and her weaknesses. I can’t wait to see more of her and cosplay her at comic con and obsess over her for the rest of my life

Consider the reasons she was brought into the film, too. The cast/story is so heavily male-dominated that Peter Jackson, Fran Walsh, and Guillermo del Toro wanted to write in another female character. That makes me happy. Not only that, but they wanted to expand the universe of Mirkwood, which is why Legolas was brought into this one as well.

Evangeline Lilly has been a huge fan of LOTR/Tolkein since she was like 13, which means she really put her knowledge into creating this character! She was worried about playing a character that was not in canon, but then she got to know the beauty that is Tauriel (and created most of that fantastic-ness herself) and went on to say, "I believe she is authentic, because Tolkien refers to The Woodland Elves, he just doesn’t talk about who they are specifically… [Peter and Fran] know that world so well. They’re not going to create a character that is not true to Tolkien’s world."

TOTALLY TRUE MAN. Tolkein could afford to be non-specific, because it was a book and his style of writing is so much like storytelling. That’s who he was— he was such a strong storyteller. But in the movie, they can’t just have somebody sit down and explain what happens. They need to show it to you, and it would not be effective to throw in random, nameless, empty characters. So I think Peter and Fran and everyone involved has been totally in the right, and have executed it perfectly so far— with Mirkwood, with Gandalf’s story, with the Necromancer, with everything. I have high hopes for the last one. 

Also, just to give an idea of how she came about, (KINDA SPOILERY BEWARE), Phillipa Boyens, one of the screenwriters, says this:  

"We always loved that story [between Galadriel and Gimli], and we never got to tell that properly in The Lord of the Rings. Professor Tolkien writes brilliantly for women, like Eowyn, but we thought the fact that he didn’t write one for The Hobbit shouldn’t stop us. We decided she should be an elf, a Mirkwood elf, and she naturally came into being. The Dwarves are being captured, put in the cells, and all of the those moments made it obvious — she’s got to be one of the guards.”

Seriously just, uh. I suggest seeing it. Go in with an open mind about Tauriel, and I’m sure you won’t be able to help falling in love with her. AND WITH HER INTERACTIONS WITH KILI. And don’t think it has to be romantic, because we’re not sure where it’s going yet. If you don’t like the romance, you’ll probably still appreciate the growing friendship.

THEY ARE SO SWEET AND FUNNY AND I JUST

Hello friends, my name is Tia and I am a 19 year old college student studying a double major in Criminal Justice and Anthropology.

As many of you know, I spent a great deal of my time working for charity to raise money for different organizations, specifically St. Jude’s, which holds a special piece of my heart. In order to support all the classes I have to take as a double major, plus my rent and car and other bills, I am currently working 3 separate part time jobs, on top of the time I try to devote to charity and community service. For all of you that follow my blog, you know that my greatest priority and joy in life is to give to others as best as I can in any way- and you also know that there are many days I don’t sleep at all because I’m working, and fail to eat because there’s just not money left over. I do my best, but I’m just one person, and minimum wage only goes so far.

I love what I do- I love my schooling and my work and my charity. However, November tends to be a month in which TONS of charity events collide- I overextended myself this month and spent more time with my service groups doing events, and thus didn’t spent as much time at work.

Everything has collided at once and my rent is due in only a few days, on December 5th. The latest I can push my landlord to take it is about December 10th, but my next paychecks don’t come in until December 14th. My landlord is not very lenient and I’m terrified about being kicked out- to turn my rent in late is enough to make her mad, but too late and I don’t think she will have much mercy.

So now, friends, I beg that you might help me pay my rent for the month of December- I would NEVER ask this of anyone if I didn’t absolutely need it, but there’s just no money this month, and no matter how much I work now, I still don’t get paid until after my rent due date. I am so sorry to ask you all for help but I am getting desperate, and scared, and if any of you can help in any way, you will have my greatest appreciation. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this, and may all good things come your way.

Thank you again for your everlasting support, friends!

- Tia

Heyo Supernatural fans, listen up!! I’m sure most of you have heard about Typhoon Haiyan, or Yolanda. Well UNICEF is rushing to help children in need in the Philippines. After being unemployed for most of the year in the midst of serious financial hardship and threat, I stopped being able to donate to UNICEF like I used to. Right now, I have nothing to give, but I know I need to help in whatever way I can. I found out about eBay Giving Works today, and I realized this is about as close as I can get. You can sell items through Giving Works and give 10-100% of the proceeds to approved charities, including UNICEF. While I cannot donate directly to the Emergency Relief Fund for the Philippines through eBay, UNICEF uses donations where they are needed most, and I am sure of two things— 1) most or all of it will likely go to relief at this time, and 2) if it does not, it’s still going toward an amazing cause to help children in this world. 

So here’s what I decided to do! I’m selling a big chunk of my Supernatural collection. As dearly as I love my Supernatural disks and companions, I know I will always have Netflix, and my companions, in truth, did little but sit on the shelf. Though I was never able to find the season five companion (for whatever strange reason), I am selling the companions for seasons 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, and 7. They are all near mint and barely ever used (like I said, they sat on a shelf). There is, however, some slight scratching on the spine of the companion for season 2. The DVDs will all play perfectly, though there may be some tiny dents or tears in the cardboard casing (I know there is a small visible tear in the corner of s1). I do not believe s7 was ever even used, though it is not sealed. Season five is autographed from one of the conventions I attended— unfortunately, it is autographed in my name (Marisa). It is autographed by Jim Beaver, Rachel Miner, and Kim Rhodes. I am starting the auction for ALL of these things together at only $100, with 100% of the proceeds going to support UNICEF (so don’t be afraid to raise the price, if you can!). I must still charge for shipping, because I am currently unable to pay for it myself. You’ll be getting a great value and a great collection for a great cause! 

For more details, see the eBay listing. I know a lot of people on here are also in difficult financial situations, but if you can signal boost and/or tell somebody you think may be interested, please do so.

One bid! Keep ‘em going!

Three now :)

Fifteen hours left!! Signal boost the hell out of this!




Thus play I in one person many people,
And none contented.




How You Can Help Survivors of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines (With or Without Money) 

loooooooooooooooooooooooooooooki:

By now, you’ve probably heard about one of the strongest storms ever to hit the Philippines and, indeed, the entire world. Typhoon Haiyan, know in the Philippines as Yolanda, has taken 10,000+ lives. Nine regions were hit, and nearly ten million people have been affected in some way or another. Tumblr is a community full of people from different financial backgrounds, so if you’re struggling financially like me, you may feel helpless when it comes to making a difference; but it doesn’t need to be that way. Whether or not you are able to donate money to relief at this time, everyone is still able to play their part as a citizen of this planet. Here are some ways you can get involved:

  • Stay updated with the Philippine Red Cross, and get updates/info from Official Gazette of the Republic of Philippines website to see what is needed as we learn more about the situation.
  • Read this How-To on Material Donations on interaction.org. Refrain from sending supplies that are not specifically requested. I know, it sucks, and I wish it would make a bigger difference. But surprisingly enough, it usually does not help. Not only do many citizens feel insulted and degraded upon receiving hand-me-downs— more often than not, they do not use them. If there is a local clothing or canned food drive near you, any supplies or gifts you donate will likely take a month (or more) to get there, and when they do arrive, they may end up in ignored piles. Sending over supplies that will go unused wastes precious time (and space in planes). This isn’t to say that all supplies go unused, but there are people out there on the ground to help in the areas that are most necessary, and they will take action on the needed supplies. This is why they need money, to assure they can do that. Once again, if you do not have money to send, I will be mentioning ways you can help. For more information on this topic, check out the article on Slate: Please Don’t Send  Your Old Shoes to the Philippines by Jessica Alexander. 
  • Instead of donating clothes, sell old clothing and accessories (in fairly good shape) to a clothing consignment shop. Use that money to donate. Check out stores like Plato’s Closet, Clothes Mentor, or Buffalo Exchange, depending on your location.
  • Sell items on eBay Giving Works to support Typhoon Relief. You are able to choose what percent of the proceeds go toward relief. 100% of THAT percent is donated.
  • Have a garage sale, reserve a table at a flea market, or sell unneeded items on AmazoneBay, and/or similar sites. Make sure to say money will be going toward disaster relief, as this will make it more likely people will spend money. Be ready to provide proof that their money will be going toward relief.
  • Sell to a resale shop, donate some or all of your proceeds. 
  • Make and sell items on Etsy (once again, state how much of the proceeds are going toward relief), and check out the Etsy for Charity group.
  • Do you know somebody with friends or family in the Philippines? Let them know that AT&T and Verizon are waiving fees for customers trying to contact loved ones in the Philippines.
  • Have some old poetry collecting dust? Short stories? An entire novel? Well, go get that writing. Edit it, if you haven’t. Compile a book. Publish it on LuLu or another self-publishing site. Encourage friends and family to buy it. It will take a while to get your money, but you will still be able to give it within a month or two (while promoting your writing). You can even help in other ways while you are waiting!
  • You guys are so talented— do commissions! Sell your art, your stories, your graphics, or any of you creative efforts, and donate some or all of the proceeds.
  • Volunteer. If you have technical skills, international experience, free time, and a loving heart, you will soon be able to register to volunteer, likely with various charities and organizations. Keep an eye out on cidi.org.
  • Check out different charity SmartPhone Apps to see if they are doing anything to help with the relief effort.
  • If you have information about any missing persons, whether you are looking for them or have found them, you can report it to the Typhoon Yolanda page on Google Person Finder.
  • Keep an eye out on iTunes— they’ll be accepting donations soon.
  • Get educated. This post does not hold everything, I just want to help others get started and inspired. I have barely scratched the surface. Take it upon yourself to research the disaster, figure out what is most needed by survivors, and see what you can do with your means, talents, abilities, compassion, body, and mind. Find more information on ReliefWeb and InterAction.

If you are able to donate, even a little bit, here is an alphabetical list of many of trustworthy charities that have been straightforward about accepting donations to put toward the relief effort. Make sure to look into them, learn about what areas they will be helping the most in, and see if you are comfortable with their terms before diving right into choosing one. Even further, you can check out this page on The International Center for Disaster Information, which will aid you in making the best and most well thought-out decisions when offering your support. Note that certain sites will have a drop-down menu asking your donation designation— make sure to specify that you want your money to go to relief in the Philippines. 

If you are straying from this list, be positive you are able to trust the charity you are donating to. Established charities are always your best bet. And do your homework; check their track record, ask for a copy of their Form 990 (which they are required to share), speak with a rep, do whatever it is to make sure you are not giving your money to a cruel scam. Do not donate over the phone, and do not assume a charity is legitimate and trustworthy just because they have a celebrity endorsing them. You can even contact the charity in a few months to see how your donation was put to use (but stay patient). Do anything you feel necessary to be assured your efforts are making a difference!

Keep these people in your thoughts and efforts. We may be separated by nations and an endless list of human-designed boundaries, but none of that matters. Not in times like these. We are all citizens on the same planet. We are all people. We have a duty to help each other, even if we lose sight of that sometimes.

but what if there is a fire at beacon hills hospital
and derek and stiles are inside
then after it is evacuated they go to jeep
and as they’re walking stiles notices derek’s labored breathing
then by they time they’re in the car it’s a full-blown panic attack
so stiles tries everything he can to calm him down 
and he starts freaking out a little bit himself
but then he remembers what lydia said 
so he kisses him 
and derek freezes 
but he doesn’t push him away 
and he’s not able to put on his usual glare when he says, barely above a whisper, “what the hell was that?”
and stiles tells him, “someone told me once that you can stop a panic attack by holding your breath”
