I just realized how epic Turisas are. Their music combines nice clean metal sounds like Blind Guardian with a classic touch which reminds me of Wagner. Also sometimes the singer sounds like Chris Harms or like Voltaire. Some songs remind me of Deathstars and others of diverse musicals and soundtracks. Also: epic lyrics as far as I understood them and a goddamn pirate song.
On the road for one hour now and still 1500km to go.
It’s like Marvel is really trying to piss people off, lol.
calling it, whoever the new iron man is they won’t be straight. marvel’s tryna go for the trifecta.
Nothing makes me more pleased than Marvel making Marvel fanboys angry about genuinely good and interesting comic choices.
no you people are literally just “pleased” with these choices because there are fans who disagree with them.
like you are really just happy with these changes because other people are unhappy.
That’s just pretty fucking pathetic.
I do believe that the primary source of their happieness is representation in a popular medium.
And people being pissed off because “mimimi Thor is a woman women can’t be [positive attributes associated with Thor]” or “mimimi Captain America is not white that’s unamerican”…well. Their problem.
Now you’re grouping shit together that’s unrelated.
Thor is a man.
Thor is not a woman, NOT because “women can’t be ______” but because Thor is a man based on flipping mythology.
That is who the character is.
Sure, women can have super awesome traits that Thor has.
A woman can be a fucking bad ass worthy of his hammer and powers (hm, Sif would probably have been worthy, that’s just one example)
Captain America is white.
Captain America is not black, NOT because it’s “un-American”, but because in the majority of Captain America comics, he is white.
And no, most of them are not happy because of their representation in popular medium (ask what do you mean about that? Because I’m sticking to movies for my lists, but in comics there IS quite the variety in comics and tv series)
Female superheroes: Black Widow, Rogue, Storm, Jean fucking Grey, other mutants in the X-Men series, soon to be Scarlet Witch (soon), etc.
Black superheroes: The Falcon, Nick Fury, James Rhodes (which they even gave him the Iron Patriot suit because fuck Norman Osborn)
Are there more white male superheroes in movies? Probably.
But really, they could take any of the already existing black or female superheroes and make them more popular.
I get that nowadays, everything is about taking away from white men to try and be “equal” but as a female marvel fan, I’m still unhappy about this.
Um, you’re confusing Marvel!Thor with actual mythology!Thor. Marvel can do whatever the fuck they want, Marvel!Thor is only based on mythology.
So sure, a lady can become Marvel!Thor, because that’s a superhero persona with an interchangeable agent behind that persona.
Same with Captain America.
I don’t want to get into arguments of any kind but… uhm… I’m really not happy with the changes.
I was never really comfortable with a mythology-inspired Thor super hero. And the idea of Captain America as the nazi-fighting representation of America bugged me all the time.
But I got used to them. I started liking them as exactly the super hero they were. And yes such heroes are interchangeable. But I don’t want them to change. For…. hmm… let’s say personal reasons. And probably there are many fans who share my reasons.
I want more equality in the super hero business. But I don’t want to lose the ones I knew.
(By the way Lady Thor is looking so damn good I can’t be mad at marvel.)
Hey, teamfeanorians, I have something you may want.
You will return to us that which is ours by right!
Whoa look what I found!
Yeah, that’s great, hon, now can we get this back to my dad before you die AGAIN?
hang on, guys, aren’t you forgetting something?
You’d better watch your door, the Noldor are comming for you
I’m sorry, what was that?
I can’t quite hear you over the racket he’s making
bashing your uncle?
I knew there was something I’d forgotten to do this morning!
Excuse you Morgoth- are you getting bored in that little void of your’s?
I’m on my way!
well what else am i supposed to do out here?
polish my own trophies?
start a rock band??
join a biker gang???
get more tattoos????
naw, tormenting you guys is what i exist for
Dear Mr. Morgoth,
should you ever get bored tormenting the Noldor you should totally consider starting a band. You and your friends would be totally metal and I’d love you.
See y’all in two weeks.
It’s holiday season and I’ll spend two weeks in Italy visiting Florence and Pisa and hopefully San Gimignano as well. It will be way too hot but I’m so excited.
I won’t be online and if you want me to see something when I’m back home, send me a message, a submission or tag it with my URL.
While I won’t be very present on your dash now you could take a look at my sideblog for which I set up a little queue.
I hope you all have some nice summer days and lots of fun.
Especially those of my followers who take part in the Silmarillion read along. I’d love to participate but I would miss the beginning and there are so many book waiting for me to be read this summer… *sigh*
I’ll never ever see you, Valinor
I haven’t thought of the context in this picture but I so you can think up your own scenario. I think that Hans and his ship was fighting an enemy ship, but lost and got captured. But Ariel, who was caught in the crossfire, got pissed and attacked the first person to fall in the water.

Happy Ñoldor Independence Day!
Why is that dark-haired Teleri with the white shirt not wearing pants?
Because the person in the original painting isn’t wearing pants. :’)
