Annatar and Celebrimbor from the upcoming game Shadow of Mordor

I couldn’t help it TwT

All I could think of was this scene from Tangled

This is EXACTLY how it happened tbh. Though it doesn’t show when he hit me across the face with a frying pan.

A Dalek Kiss because WHY NOT? by CMDORE

So beguilingblackness asked for a color version of this sketch and WHY NOT I’m super glad ya did because Alek is canonically redheaded if I remember correctly and it makes me REALLY HAPPY….

*screaming intensifies*

THANK YOUUUUU!!!

Be grateful for all the art you receive

nightingales:

Whenever someone draws me anything I try my hardest to write a really appreciative comment, but truthfully I never feel like it’s enough. I always worry that I am coming off ungrateful! My other fear is that I might come off insincere.

It is actually really impossible for me to convey in words how sweet it is when someone draws me something. I know, for many people, it seems like it’s such a throwaway thing because it’s ‘just a picture’. But I think about the fact that someone had to sit down and spend their time on something solely for me. Time is something you never get back! Not to mention effort haha. Also, art is pretty personalised, especially if it’s something of your own, like a character.

I really love getting art for this reason & I always hope that people know that I appreciate it - even if it’s a gift, trade or commission, I really love it all the same and I appreciate all the time and effort that went into it!

i have not printed them out yet, but i will make sure to have them in the highest quality possible, all of them about the size of an A4. i’ll probably post more updates about this during the giveaway. i suspect they will be of a thicker, matted paper type and not a shiny one. i will secure the packages the best i can before sending them, but i won’t be responsible if they would somehow get damaged during the shipping.

HOLY SWEET SOMMERSAULTING BABY EONWE!

Hearken to me, ye Silmarillion Fandom! Celebrimbor is the wraith in Shadows of Middle-Earth! I am sorry tyelpings but I am very much in agreement at least with that sexy voice of his!

I imagine him as way younger and naive-looking. This older, sterner Tyelpe is something I like!

Wait a minute… who is…

OH

MY

GOD!!

WE HAVE ANNATAR!!! THIS IS NOT A DRILL!!

Book Meme | One Location [1/1]: Instanbul/Constantinople, Ottoman Empire {Behemoth- Scott Westerfield}

"Instanbul?" Newkirk frowned. "But it’s ‘Constantinople’ on all the maps."

"On our maps it is,” the lady boffin said. “We use that name to honor Constantine, the Christian emperor who founded the city. But the residents have called it Instanbul since 1453.”

What angels are apparently supposed to look like.

They had 6 wings, covered with eyes on the wings. And had two eyes on their face, but used 2 wings to cover their face at all times because if a mortal ever saw their face they would die.

 The bible mentions multiple faces, being covered in eyeballs, constant singing, lion heads etc.

 Besides being described as beasts and monsters, they’re practically brainless drones. Heavenly angels are only one step removed from demons. The only difference is demons fell from heaven because they chose to follow Lucifer, who was an angel (angel of music and one of god’s favorites). So they are these eyeball covered animal mashed up monsters who were only created to worship for eternity (part of humanities creation was so that something would choose to love god, not just worship him because they were created to).

Angels fall into a lot of new age and conspiracy beliefs.We were taught that the supernatural realms went in the order of Heaven, Hell, then Earth. So when the angels fell from heaven with Lucifer, some fell through hell and landed on Earth. We were taught they intermarried with early humans and created giants and taught witch craft to women.

 They’re abominations, they’re alien, they’re beyond us. They’re creatures that biology as we know it does not apply to. Often they do not love mankind, they love God and God alone.

Christianity is funky and frightening.

damn but thats not what they put on christmas cards

Why do you think the conventional greeting used by Angelic Hosts is “Fear Not”?? Because you sure as sh*t will be afraid!
