lmao you all constantly make fun of catholicism as if catholicism isn´t the religion of latinx countries like spain or italy. like catholicism is very important to lxtinx culture, and the catholic church is literally headed by a lxtixx man(pope francis). and also like, the catholic church does a lot of charity work in poor coun im just kidding but can you imagine if i was actually being serious
Can I please ask for your top five theories on why the Ringwraiths become so much more powerful over the course of the LotR trilogy? By the end of the books a single Ringwraith holds an army of 6000 men in paralysing dread from a height of a mile, they're dismaying hosts of men, etc. And in the beginning, they're easily defeated by "jumping behind a tree," "pretending to be in a different room," "getting on a little boat," "man with a stick on fire," etc.
1) their power depends on how physically close they are to sauron/mordor
2) they consciously weren’t unleashing their full power early in Fellowship bcos it didn’t seem worth it when they were just dealing w hobbits
3) they just woke up from a REALLY long nap and it takes them a while to fully come ‘online’
actually i think it’s very funny and correct that the new york times wrote about dracula daily, a substack turned accidental tumblr book club, and tumblr’s reaction to the article is “fuck this pro-count propaganda, where is our friend jonathan?” because to be honest i think if a genuinely mainstream news organization ever managed to accurately convey what the fuck goes on here, that would be the sign of the end times, possibly of human civilization but almost certainly of this being the only social media platform worth using anymore. like, forget it, cops are here, party’s over, go home. in retrospect “new york times reports on tumblr’s favorite novel of 2022 (one of the most famous books in the world, which came out in 1897), tumblr gets mad at them for incorrectly identifying the book’s #1 blorbo” truly feels like the only way this was ever gonna go, and i for one am grateful, because i don’t come to this website for content that is able to be parsed by normal people. that’s not what i’m here to do and it’s certainly not what i’m here to see.
Men will let you borrow their softest shirt to sleep in, lull you into a false sense of security for a year, and then have the audacity to take it back on a random Thursday while doing laundry and wear it?? During the day?? Like a normal shirt???
Sir. That is my sleeping shirt. And it certainly is not to be worn during daylight hours unless it’s a leisurely Sunday morning and we’re making pancakes to take back to bed and it’s on my body because it’s my sleeping shirt.
