    I’ve only heard about two of their songs, but I watched the YouTube stream of their Coachella performance and this girl seemed lovely.

    sscharli:

    Felt like being super lazy today.

    And it felt good until about three o’clock. And then I started feeling panicky. Like, what the fuck have I done with my day?

    Made a quick grocery store run for my husband and decided to pick me up some flowers.

    Got home and realized what a clusterfuck my night stand was and my little notebook shelf had been collecting all sorts of tiny junk.

    1 20/10 and I fixed it right up. Put my flowers in a spaghetti jar and honey jar and spruced up my sleeping/work space just a bit.

    Can I just say I appreciate that you corrected “weakness” to “weaknesses.” =P I was squinting while I read it, and then I saw that it’d been fixed!

    My standards for boys:

    • tall
    • burly
    • shoulder-length hair
    • the-sun-is-rising-smile
    • knowing about journeys in the high places
    • good swordsman
    • standing up for others
    • dying to protect the little ones
    • Boromir
    • it’s actually Boromir

    I’d actually take Legolas or Eomer before him, but this still made me lol. Especially because I’ve been rereading/rewatching FOTR and am seriously appreciating Boromir.

    Okay, we’ve all seen these before. Simply reblog and replace my answers with your own. We all get to talk about Tolkien (which is awesome), and we all get to learn a bit about each other (which is awesome.)

    HISTORY

    • First Tolkien Book: The Fellowship of the Ring
    • Age at First Reading: 12
    • Who/What Introduced You?: 1) A friend showed me a bookmark of Legolas, and I thought he was the hottest person ever. 2) Later that week, I slept over at a friend’s house while her brother and father were watching FOTR. We couldn’t sleep because of the noises from one of the fight scenes (Moria), so I said to her, “Hey, you know, that’s the movie with the hot blonde guy in it. We should watch.” So we watched… and while I can’t say that I had any idea which Hobbit was which, or indeed that Aragorn and Boromir were two separate people, I went out and bought the DVD the very next day. The rest, as they say, is history.
    • First Favorite Character: Legolas, clearly.

    CURRENT EVENTS

    • Currently Reading (By Tolkien): A Spanish translation of The Fellowship of the Ring.
    • Fan of the Movies?: YES. In some ways, I actually think they’re better than the books.
    • Plan to Read Next: A Spanish translation of The Two Towers, and possibly those letters of J.R.R. Tolkien that I keep hearing so much about.

    FAVORITES

    • Story: Oh boy. The Silmarillion has some pretty good stories, but I might have to go with The Unfinished Tales.
    • Race/Culture: Overall, I think the Elves have a pretty sweet deal going for them, but I absolutely love everything about Rohan. 
    • Male Character: There’s no way I can name one, so I’ll go with: Legolas, Thranduil, Eomer, Theodred, Boromir, Feanor, and Beleg Cuthalion. [Some of these choices have been influenced by the movies and fanon.]
    • Female Character: Eowyn, Lothiriel, Haleth, Tar-Miriel, Queen Beruthiel (lol), and Tauriel. [Some of these choices have been influenced by the movies and fanon.]
    • Romantic Relationship: Does Aragorn/Legolas count? Hm, I guess I can’t say I’ve found any of the canonical romances to be terribly compelling. I prefer fanfiction, generally in the form of Rohancest (Eowyn/Eomer/Theodred or any combination thereof), which probably says terrible things about me but oh well. Also, Boromir/Theodred.
    • Friendship: Maedhros and Fingon, Aragorn and Legolas, Turin and Beleg (welp, we all know how that turned out).
    • Location: ROHAN <3 The Shire seems pretty awesome, too.
    • Battle: Nirnaeth Arnoediad for all the feels, but the movie version of Helm’s Deep > anything.
    • Song: The “Where is the horse and the rider?” poem from Rohan.
    • Of the Trilogy: Books - The Fellowship of the Ring; Movies - The Two Towers.
    • Member of the Fellowship: Legolas. Aragorn and Boromir are close seconds.
    • Villain: I’m not sure Feanor and his sons count as villains, but they are responsible for a lot of terrible things that happen to the other characters, so I’ll go with them.
    • Elf: See above.
    • Dwarf: I don’t really have one, to be honest. Movie!Thorin has that nice smoldering angst thing going on, though.
    • Man/Woman: See above.
    • Hobbit: Sam.
    • Valar/Maiar: Tulkas.
    • Other: Movie!Gollum/Smeagol.
