there’s a lot of evidence that the iliad and the odyssey were actually composed by a variety of poets through an oral tradition rather than just by one poet, so what if the homeric texts are actually just a very long game of D&D

homer, the dm: okay achilles, agamemnon has just taken away your war prize, what do you want to do
achilles’ player: i roll to have a diplomatic conversation with agamemnon
achilles’ player: *rolls a 1*
homer: you throw the staff of speaking at agamemnon’s face and storm off to sulk with your boyfriend

Homer, the DM: Your beautiful Patroclus is dead. What do you do?
Achilles’ player: I fight everyone.
Homer, the DM: You can’t fight everyone. How would you even–
Achilles’ player: *rolls a 20* I fight everyone.
Homer, the DM: *sighs* Fine. You cut a path through the Trojan army, enemy dead strewn in your wake.
Achilles’ player: How many?
Homer, the DM: …lots. Enough to clog the friggin’ river with bodies.
Achilles’ player: I fight the river.
Homer, the DM: You. can. not. fight. the. river.
Achilles’ player: *reaches for dice*

Homer, the DM: You spot your enemy in battle. What do you do?
Paris’ player: I fire an arrow at him, ignoring his armor. *rolls a 6 for accuracy*
Homer, the DM: You hit him where he has no armor, but in a non-vital area.
Achilles’ player: Damage done?
Paris’ player: *rolls a natural 20, gets a 4 point bonus from Rage*
Homer, the DM: Lethal.
Achilles’ player: Fuck…

You don’t wanna talk? Don’t talk. You wanna throw me off the boat? Throw me off. You wanna tell me I don’t know what I’m doing? I know I don’t. I have no idea why the ocean chose me, you’re right. But my island is dying, so I am here. It’s just me and you and I want to help… But I can’t, if you don’t let me.

  • everyone lives Except you boromir
  • happy endings for all! 

The Hobbit: 

  • Evil mostly destroyed, 
  • almost everyone lives, 
  • happy ending!

The Silmarillion: 

  • Evil sort of banished 
  • everyone dies
  • tears all around

both the sweet and the bitter.❞

Arwen became as a mortal woman, and yet it was not her lot to die until all that she had gained was lost…As Queen of Elves and Men she dwelt with Aragorn for six-score years in great glory and bliss; yet at last he felt the approach of old age and knew that the span of his life-days was drawing to an end… Arwen knew well what he intended, and long had foreseen it; nonetheless she was overborne by her grief.

I’ve been a rabid fan of things before, but I have to detach myself. I remember when I was watching “The Sopranos” I got ill. It had already all come out and I had all the box sets and I found myself watching it non-stop. I had the liberty of time on my side. At one point I was halfway through season 4, I think, and I got out of bed - where I was watching it - and went to the fridge, and I opened the fridge like Tony Soprano did. I was eating like him. And it’s that sort of investment that I’ve spent so much time watching this character that - not intentionally at all - I was acting like him. (x)

I have chased after kids who don’t believe that I am Obi-Wan Kenobi. I’m like, “I am! I am Obi-Wan Kenobi!”

If a twelve-year old has to conquer the world, then so be it. — George R. R. Martin

They say the pack is led by a monstrous she-wolf, a stalking shadow grim and grey and huge. They will tell you that she has been known to bring aurochs down all by herself, that no trap nor snare can hold her, that she fears neither steel nor fire, slays any wolf that tries to mount her, and devours no other flesh but man.

Who says we can’t do anything that we set our mind to? You may not be the best at it. You may not be the most successful. But you can try your best. That’s what having it all means to me — not letting anyone tell me no but myself.
