I know a number of people who have an issue with the way Tolkien writes, saying that he spends 3 pages talking about a tree or some such. And while I can admit that he does love describing nature it’s because the landscape represents things and it is an important part of the story. The downside to not reading his stuff is that you miss gems like this one. It rings so true, so honest, so heartfelt that it almost hurts. These moments are powerful and pull you deeper into the story.
So yeah, I understand some people just don’t get him but there are times where that doesn’t make any sense.

Just to remind people that Lindsey Sterling is awesome. There is a reason I based a character off her.

Don’t you like it? I think it’ll do very nicely. The arms are a bit long. I can always take them in.
Romana is completely epic!! I love her so much. There is a reason I wrote a Dr. Who fanfic with her in it.
Just saw Lucy and you can totally tell its a Luc Besson film. There are so many of his classic images in there that its kind of insane. And Scarlet’s acting before she was amped is amazing. Her terror is tangible and very believable. I was very impressed. The bits as she got more percentage used was well done also. She seemed distracted by something and definitely off in a way that got worse over the course of the film, which if you think about what was happening to her makes sense.
I really enjoyed it, despite having a few issues with it. There were some things they could have done better but there are always things that could have been done better. Morgan Freeman was excellent as usual. So my recommendation is to go see it.
“I crave your mouth, your voice, your hair.
Silent and starving, I prowl through the streets.
Bread does not nourish me, dawn disrupts me, all day
I hunt for the liquid measure of your steps.”

Gods he has an amazing way of phrasing things. There is no doubt exactly how deep and full this love is. He writes about it with such sincerity that I have never read anything by anyone else that has come close.
This. Absolutely this. People who dumb themselves down are not really living up to their full potential. That is wrong but everybody is allowed to make their own choices, because that’s what freewill is all about.
