Please reblog if you are a Tolkienite of any shape/mass/form

tolkienisms:

I want to see just how many of us are out there. Doesn’t matter if you like the books/movies/just one book…anything to do with Tolkien, reblog.

Does anyone else do the thing where something very large happens in the first 500-1000 words of a story, and then you spend the next 4-7k words distracting the readers and the characters from this huge momentous thing that just happened (even though they are literally sitting in the aftermath of it) by explaining this other thing, only to finally come back and explain the thing that happened?

Like, my first NaNo was KotOR, and Tana and Kael (Exile and Revan) saw the Star Forge had rebuilt itself, but I didn’t explain that. All I did was end the chapter with Tana shouting for Kael to come up to the cockpit, and him saying “Oh, shit.” They go about the galaxy, doing their merry crew-gathering way, having conversations and doing random missions and the plot is advancing along and before I know it, I’m THIRTY THOUSAND WORDS into the story, and I realize that my readers? They have NO idea that Tana and Kael have seen the Star Forge rebuilding itself. The rest of the crew - same issue. Over the course of the entire story, Tana and Kael have NEGLECTED TO MENTION that the entire reason they’ve gathered them all together is that the technology that caused those Star Maps to reassemble themselves after they were destroyed by the Rakatan slaves (yeah, forgot that part, didn’t you?) was also capable of rebuilding the Star Forge. It is literally self-repairing. And Here I am, 30k in, and NEVER mentioned it.

I was writing something for the past few hours and realized that I’d just had characters jump some 20 years into the past, change locations even, from indoors to outdoors, mentioned the change in scenery, and while the main character was fully cognizant of it, the other characters who were with her, and were fully aware of what had happened, had completely distracted her, and me, with something else, that I hadn’t gotten around to explaining the time travel bit.

Fuck me running sideways.

Seriously, is it just me, or does anyone else do shit like this?

FEDERAL LAW 2938532 STATES THAT EWAN MCGREGOR IS LEGALLY NO LONGER ALLOWED TO SIT IN THESE POSITIONS.

THE HOSPITALS CAN NO LONGER HANDLE THE CASUALTIES. 

THE LAW THEN DEGRADES INTO LAKSDJF;LASDJFDKSLA;FJDSA;LFJDSALKGHDSALKJGDSALKF;JDSALF;J;ALIEFHALKF ASLDKFJDSLAKFDSALKHEIALFJDLAKFHEIALFD AND IS COVERED IN THE BLOOD OF NOSEBLEEDS FROM EVERYONE IN CONGRESS.

Um, this would be the post that explains the Second Rule of Ewan. The Law as to why he is not allowed to sit that way. It’s actually a follow up to a previous post of Heidi’s. Heidi, if you want to dig in your archive for it, this was sometime in February of 2013. It was easy for me to track the first instance of the ‘second rule of ewan’ tag in my history, and then view on dash to find the date stamp.


Okay this in actual first world problem but it appears I do not have a gif of Ewan saying ‘may the force be with you’ nor can I find a good one - does ANYONE have one. It’s shameful, I know.

Sorta the point - went looking for an Ewan gif of ‘May the Force be with you’ - found that blog.

Didn’t we go through this last year? What’s the problem?

….yes we went through this last year and : The tangent line to the graph of y = h(x) at the point (-51) passes through the point (41). Find the following values: h(-5) and h’(-5)

I have to refresh my memory on this type of equation. Give me a minute to do that and I’ll send you the formulas in a fanmail. Pretty sure you need to find the equation of the line where h is -5 and the derivative of that line where h is -5, from the wording of the problem. 

Math teacher friend is helping me - hold the phone.
