Dìs found herself standing by one of the guards on the battlements of the Keep. The guard was clearly anxious with her around, shifting his feet from side to side, constantly readjusting his helmet. She stepped away from the poor fellow, finding a more secluded place on the wall from which to watch the road. In the moonlight, she could see how quiet it was, stretched out before her.
She was Commander of the Grey now, and she found it lonelier than she had expected.
Not that there weren’t people around; there were. But oftentimes the loneliness that comes in the midst of a busy crowd cuts all the deeper.
She sighed. There were no figures on the road below. No matter how much she wanted to see a tall human in heavy armor with a sword and shield at his back, with a capering mabari beside him, they did not appear.
She looked down at the vellum and quill in her hands. Resting the paper against the stone, she began to write. It was a halting exercise for her; few thought dusters even needed to know how to read. It always took her longer than she liked to write, though at least her reading was quick enough. The quill scratched the thin paper.
every character in frasier is white but anyone who has a problem with that has never actually been to the northwest
every time I go back to Portland from LA I’m like “hoshit it is so damn white here”
I mean it’s not Nebraska levels of white but it is definitely up there
Movie meme! Tagged by theladyw, here are the rules :)
“List 15 movies that will always stay with you. The rules: Don’t take too long to think about it. Fifteen films you’ve seen that will always stick with you. List the first 15 you can recall in no more than 15 minutes.”
1. Lord of the Rings. Going back I see a lot of problems with them that bug me more on rewatching (Wargs and Elves in Two Towers, SAM LEAVING FRODO WTF) but they did do some things extremely right, namely the Shire and what the hell, I loved the four goddamn endings. I sobbed the entire time during all 4 of the endings, btw, and saw FotR 9 times, TTT 4 times, and RotK 6 times IN THEATERS, not counting how many times I’ve watched them since. They’re definitely an amazing show of worldbuilding and effort, even if some of the plot choices left me going wut.
2. Moon. Doubles? Isolation? Space? Tie my heart up in knots and just lacerate the shit out of it why don’t you.
3. Pan’s Labyrinth. Terrifying more so for the human elements than the fantastic (bottle scene jesus christ). I bought it but have been too alarmed to watch it again.
4. Videodrome. Long live the new flesh. Disgusting and weird and mesmerizing all at once.
5. Love Actually. The one romantic comedy I really enjoy watching. It’s a Christmas movie for me and I bust it out to watch with my friends or girlfriends every year without fail.
6. X-Men: First Class. I have to thank this movie for getting me back into fandom for the first time in about 6 years. I had thought, wow, maybe I’ve outgrown being a fangirl or something, how sad, it was such a big part of my life and now I don’t ship anything :( Then BAM along came Charles and Erik and their slashy slashy goodness and their crying manly tears and their delicious smut, and fanfic and tumblr and everything hit me over the head with a hammer. I didn’t get into DOFP at all, but I definitely owe this movie for getting me back to being a fangirl (or the more mature fanfemme).
7. Shame. Devastating, excellent movie that I never ever want to see again.
8. Star Wars trilogy. One of my first nerdly endeavors as a child, I still remember my mom angrily telling me that if it weren’t for 13, Planet of Ice she would have had a complete collection of 1980 Topps Empire Strikes Back cards, haha. My parents and I have bonded over these movies more times than I can count.
9. The Lion King. Is there anyone my age who wasn’t traumatized as a child because of the wildebeest scene???
10. Back to the Future trilogy. I had a big crush on Marty as a kid and actually one on Doc, once we got to the third movie, haha. I’ll always love these silly, earnest movies.
11. Batman. The Tim Burton one. It helped spark my love in Batman: the Animated Series, and that love helped me win my fiance (“hey, dude, you wanna come over to my dorm room and watch B:atS?” “yeah” “um so we’re holding hands watching Batman THIS IS AWESOME”). Plus Batman’s just awesome.
12. Toy Story. One of the movies I can honestly recite along with it word for word. I still get teary when Buzz falls - Randy Newman deserved such an Oscar for that score.
13. The Harry Potter series. The books are still vastly superior, but the kids grew into their roles well. Despite issues with the writing and some of the plot changes, they are overall enjoyable and I have loved going to midnight shows of them, so they make the list.
14. Lost in Translation. When I saw it a second time I was totally underwhelmed, but the first time I was filled with an incredible sense of loneliness and melancholy.
15. 28 Days Later. This sparked my love of zombies, and gave me a heart attack the first time I saw it. I’ve since rewatched it 7 or 8 times and enjoy it every time. In the House - In a Heartbeat is still my go-to atmospheric writing song and that entire sequence is mesmerizing.
-You become emotionally attached.
-You can’t hug them whenever you want to which is something you often forget.
-You find people who don’t judge you. At all.
-You have to learn time zones. That’s a real bummer.
-You find people who love you for you.
-You sometimes cry because you just love them so much and get super emotional when you realize they are thousands of miles away from you.
