Sound the charge, into Glory ride!


Polly. Numbers state that I'm an adult.
What you'll find here: whatever I feel like reblogging at the moment and lots of random personal text posts. But mostly: Tolkien stuff (I love The Silmarillion, I have a soft spot for the noldor, especially feanorians, also Dark Lords, and sometimes good people as well), Doctor Who (whenever that damned show comes back), heavy metal and power metal, every variation of metal.
Martial arts are an important part of my life. Now also trying to be an archer.
Feel free to ask whatever you wish to ask if you happen to be curious or just want to talk.

"And therefore, since I cannot prove a lover,
to entertain these fair well-spoken days,
I am determined to prove a villain,
and hate the idle pleasures of these days."

William Shakespeare - Richard III

"For it is said that after the departure of the Valar there was silence, and for an age Ilúvatar sat alone in thought. Then he spoke and said: ‘Behold I love the Earth, which shall be a mansion for the Quendi and the Atani! But the Quendi shall be the fairest of all earthly creatures, and they shall have and shall conceive and bring forth more beauty than all my Children; and they shall have the greater bliss in this world. But to the Atani I will give a new gift.’ Therefore he willed that the hearts of Men should seek beyond the world and should find no rest therein; but they should have a virtue to shape their life, amid the powers and chances of the world, beyond the Music of the Ainur, which is as fate to all things else; and of their operation everything should be, in form and deed, completed, and the world fulfilled unto the last and smallest.
But Ilúvatar knew that Men, being set amid the turmoils of the powers of the world, would stray often, and would not use their gifts in harmony; and he said: ”These too in their time shall find that all that they do redounds at the end only to the glory of my work.’ Yet the Elves believe that Men are often a grief to Manwë, who knows most of the mind of Ilúvatar; for it seems to the Elves that Men resemble Melkor most of all the Ainur, although he has ever feared and hated them, even those that served him."

— Chapter 1: Of the Beginning of Days - J.R.R. Tolkien


"And Oromë tamer of beasts would ride too at whiles in the darkness of the unlit forests; as a mighty hunter he came with spear and bow, pursuing to the death the monsters and fell creatures of the kingdom of Melkor, and his white horse Nahar shone like silver in the shadows. Then the sleeping earth trembled at the beat of his golden hooves, and in the twilight of the world Oromë would sound the Valaróma his great horn upon the plains of Arda; whereat the mountains echoed, and the shadows of evil fled away, and Melkor himself quailed in Utumno, foreboding the wrath to come. But even as Oromë passed the servants of Melkor would gather again; and the lands were filled with shadows and deceit."

"Of Maeglin"

I finally finished it I can’t believe how much focus it took to sit down and finish it after many failed attempts.

Anyways, Maeglin in the middle, his parents Aredhel and Eöl on the left, and his cousin Idril with her husband Tuor on the right.

I want to get a tattoo Tolkien related, but I still haven’t found the right thing.. I’ll keep on searching, but I definitely want one.

I might get a small arrow on my wrist when I go as moral support for hwarang who’s getting her first tattoo on Friday :D

Friday is going to be a disaster. I will laugh, I will cry, there will be pain. My parents will hate me. Oh god. But constructedofchemicals is THE BEST! <3

You should get that arrow while you keep thinking of a tolkien-related one :) You’ll find the perfect one for you one day, you’ll see! :D

"But Ulmo was alone, and he abode not in Valinor, nor ever came thither unless there were need for a great council; he dwelt from the beginning of Arda in the Outer Ocean, and still he dwells there. Thence he governs the flowing of all waters, and the ebbing, the courses of all rivers and the replenishment of Springs, the distilling of all dews and rain in every land beneath the sky. In the deep places he gives thought to music great and terrible; and the echo of that music runs through all the veins of the world in sorrow and in joy; for if joyful is the fountain that rises in the sun, its springs are in the wells of sorrow unfathomed at the foundations of the Earth. The Teleri learned much of Ulmo, and for this reason their music has both sadness and enchantment. Salmar came with him to Arda, he who made the horns of Ulmo that none may ever forget who once has heard them; and Ossë and Uinen also, to whom he gave the government of the waves and the movements of the Inner Seas, and many other spirits beside. And thus it was by the power of Ulmo that even under the darkness of Melkor life coursed still through many secret lodes, and the Earth did not die; and to all who were lost in that darkness or wandered far from the light of the Valar the ear of Ulmo was ever open; nor has he ever forsaken Middle-earth, and whatsoever may since have befallen of ruin or of change he has not ceased to take thought for it, and will not until the end of days."

30 day Tolkien Elves challenge - Day 16: Least favourite elf? 

SAEROS.

There is nothing to justify the way Saeros acts and I don’t like it at all. I think I read somewhere (maybe in Unfinished Tales, or Children of Húrin?) that he was somewhat related to Daeron? Well, that’s still no excuse. Daeron was in love and might have honestly believed that Beren was no good for Lúthien and no one can blame him for that. And that’s it, he didn’t do anything else. But Saeros? With his stupid comments, thinking himself oh so clever.

"Then Túrin in great anger took up a drinking-vessel, and cast it at Saeros; and he was grievously hurt."

I ALWAYS laugh out loud when I read that (ok, I might snort actually, but, whatever). You totally deserved that Saeros. You’re just jealous and insecure. You don’t like Túrin? You don’t trust him? Your problem with him is that he’s of the race of Men? FINE, just ignore him and act like the fucking grown up that you are.

Anyway, what Túrin did was wrong but was really an accident. I know most people think that humiliating someone like that is actually stooping to their level and we should be above that but I don’t agree, (here comes Polly the little shit:) sometimes you need to take matters into your own hands and being the bigger person doesn’t satisfy your inner anger. Túrin probably agrees with me (of course he does, we’re practically the same person). So, fuck you Saeros, you had it coming.

Apologies to any Saeros lovers out there. He’s probably the ONLY elf I can’t like. (Eöl at least is interesting/intriguing, but Saeros? no, take him from my sight before I throw something at him).

"Manwë has no thought for his own honour, and is not jealous of his power, but rules all to peace. The Vanyar he loved best of all the Elves, and of him they received song and poetry; for poetry is the delight of Manwë, and the song of words is his music. His raiment is blue, and blue is the fire of his eyes, and his sceptre is of sapphire, which the Noldor wrought for him; and he was appointed to be the vicegerent of Ilúvatar, King of the world of Valar and Elves and Men, and the chief defence against the evil of Melkor. With Manwë dwelt Varda the most beautiful, she who in the Sindarin tongue is named Elbereth, Queen of the Valar, maker of the stars; and with them were a great host of spirits in blessedness."

— Chapter 1: Of the Beginning of Days - J.R.R. Tolkien


"

And when Valinor was full-wrought and the mansions of the Valar were established, in the midst of the plain beyond the mountains they built their city, Valmar of many bells. Before its western gate there was a green mound, Ezellohar, that is named also Corollairë; and Yavanna hallowed it, and she sat there long upon the green grass and sang a song of power, in which was set all her thought of things that grow in the earth. But Nienna thought in silence, and watered the mould with tears. In that time the Valar were gathered together to hear the song of Yavanna, and they sat silent upon their thrones of council in the Máhanaxar, the Ring of Doom near to the golden gates of Valmar, and Yavanna Kementári sang before them and they watched.
And as they watched, upon the mound there came forth two slender shoots; and silence was over all the world in that hour, nor was there any other sound save the chanting of Yavanna. Under her song the saplings grew and became fair and tall, and came to flower; and thus there awoke in the world the Two Trees of Valinor. Of all things which Yavanna made they have most renown, and about their fate all the tales of the Elder Days are woven.

The one had leaves of dark green that beneath were as shining silver, and from each of his countless flowers a dew of silver light was ever falling, and the earth beneath was dappled with the shadow of his fluttering leaves. The other bore leaves of a young green like the new-opened beech; their edges were of glittering gold. Flowers swung upon her branches in clusters of yellow flame, formed each to a glowing horn that spilled a golden rain upon the ground; and from the blossom of that tree there came forth warmth and a great light. Telperion the one was called in Valinor, and Silpion, and Ninquelótë, and many other names; but Laurelin the other was, and Malinalda, and Culúrien, and many names in song beside.
