Do NOT shame people for choosing not to go to school.

Do NOT insult people for dropping out.

Do NOT teach your children that dropping out means you are a failure. 

You never know what’s going on in that person’s life.

Just DON’T DO IT.

Agreed.

Thank you.

Ok, here’s my take on the Galadriel & Tauriel thing that seems to be sweeping the fandom. Personally, while I can understand why people are angry, (and I do understand, I genuinely do), I happen to love their positioning and expressions. Why?

Women are disproportionately the ones affected by war. BoFA is a fantastical setting, yes, but women are often the unwilling victims/survivors of war. However, I do not think Galadriel & Tauriel are made out to be victims within the banner, in fact the opposite. 

I’m thrilled they’re not holding swords and looking stoic as hell because, quite frankly, I’m sick and tired of female characters needing to hold up swords in order to be deemed ‘valuable’. Additionally, one of the major themes of The Hobbit is greed and how fucking stupid and awful war is. Give me Tauriel looking shell shocked over the horror and brutality of war than being sucked into an ‘epic pose’. 

Give me Galadriel being shown fighting for something aside from gold and tangible, I’ll take her being outstretched and reaching towards Gandalf, towards an ally and friend, over reaching for the Arkenstone. I’ll take women representing the true horror of war and death over some epic poses, thank you very much.

do you guys ever wonder why the students at hogwarts are afraid of the shrieking shack because its “haunted” when they literally go to school with ghosts

….wait

The world is indeed full of peril, and in it there are many dark places; but still there is much that is fair, and though in all lands love is now mingled with grief, it grows perhaps the greater.

This is Chicago, kid. You can’t beat fresh blood on the walls.
