so the nazgul captured minas ilith in the year 2000 of the third age, but sauron didn’t return until 2942, and the events of the lord of the rings didn’t take place until 3017

so what did they do in minas morgul in the nearly 1000 years between?

I just imagine them bickering like housemates…like the witch king keeps leaving his dirty dishes next to the sink instead of washing up

"you just wait til sauron gets back!"

"come at me, no bro can kill me!"

SIGH. I’m not sure the place I was planning on living is going to work out. D: D: D: D:

I would REALLY like to find a decent place and a decent roommate. 

If you’re in the KC area or know someone in the KC area looking for a roommate, let me know? This is stressful.

MTV just launched their latest effort to engage (or exploit, depending on who you ask) fandom. Described by Mashable as “a new virtual clubhouse”, The Collective is “a curated space for ‘Teen Wolf’ fans to share and be recognized for their unique content”. While some of the fandom were excited by MTV’s continued effort to engage with its audience, there were just as many (if not more) fans that are skeptical about the site. Panic and misinformation spread like wildfire in fandom so it’s worth while taking a closer look at The Collective to find out what it’s all about.
READ MORE: Teen Wolf Fans are Skeptical About Joining “The Collective”

The more I read about this the more flabbergasted I am that they thought this was a good idea. Just a couple more things to point out that I’m thinking about from reading this article:
The original Mashable article actually features fan art and credits it “courtesy of MTV”. That is EXACTLY the kind of shit I would expect to see going forward from this. If people want to take part, go nuts, but recognize that your art can and probably will be used however MTV wants — and I’m betting that will ultimately mean commercially too — with even your name neatly excised from your own artwork. Apparently that particular artist doesn’t mind, but I’d think through whether you do mind before you put any of your work on this site.
Bear in mind also that official forums/communities/tools tend to disappear when the show does. I’ve been through this so many times with “official” forums and the like… fans use the sites they’re offered to build communities, and then one day, usually without warning, the studios decide to stop spending money on them and they’re gone. There are a lot of good reasons why fandoms tend to build for themselves on independent platforms and this is just one of them. Official spaces also tend to go hand in hand with heavy moderation, which means there are approved and not-approved topics, and criticism is not encouraged and welcomed.
I just really feel like this whole thing is bullshit and kind of insulting tbh.

Hey Guys. So on WELOVEFINE. I have entered a How To Train Your Dragon T-shirt design contest and would love it if i could get some votes on my design. Sorry you have to be signed up with the site to vote.Here is the link to my design :) Its basically a silhouette of toothless make up of the word DRAGONS

Thank YOU!image

https://contest.welovefine.com/vote.php?id_contest=83&m=gallery&id_submit=33789#.U8xgYRalnFI

What in the actual FUCK. NO.

Guys, this person has stolen my Toothless silhouette tshirt design that I spent absolutely days researching from stills to get just right. DO NOT BUY FROM THIS PERSON, THEY ARE AN ART THIEF. I cannot possibly express how infuriated and hurt I am and I see they’re putting ‘dragons’ all over it because they obviously don’t have the hi-res original.

image

As you can see, they’ve kept the exact same number of forks on the wings and tailfins in the exact same directions and have obviously given up drawing the red skull design in excruciating detail LIKE I DID. 

THIS IS THE LINK TO MY ORIGINAL DESIGN ON REDBUBBLE.

I’m going to take this up with welovefine.com but until then please help me out and spread the word about this goddamn art thief plagiarising something I worked so hard on. I am so upset. :(

Marshal Stacker Pentecost fixing tiny Mako’s hair and he really sucks at it so he has to practice a lot on barbie dolls

tiny Mako running up to Marshal Stacker Pentecost with a crayon drawing of them fighting kaiju side by side and he has to turn away and put it on the fridge so she doesn’t see him tearing up

Marshal Stacker Pentecost sitting beside tiny Mako’s bed all night because she was having nightmares about kaiju and there’s no way he’s going to let any kaiju real or imaginary scare his little girl

Marshal Stacker Pentecost being overwhelmed by all the cute little dresses he can buy Mako and being even more overwhelmed when tiny Mako wants to dress in little military clothes and learn how to fight

Marshal Stacker Pentecost being banned from Mako’s sparring matches because he’s an over-competitive sports parent
