I   didn’t   want   to   leave   her    a l o n e.

THIS FUCKING SCENE IS WHY IT’S NOT OKAY TO HATE ON DAWN.
I mean yes she is annoying and can be really immature but she’s like, 12 years old in season 5 and she loses her mother. Then, her sister within the year. And her father left and won’t even fucking call her so she’s literally alone and has no family. So she’s bratty and acts out? How can you blame her? she doesn’t do real damage she just whines a lot it’s not like she’s hurting people. Oh and also when she was 12/13 she was told she wasn’t REAL and her memories were FAKE.
And they never think of her, they constantly forget her. Yes, Xander was busy rushing Buffy to the hosptial because she also got shot, but like, he didn’t think to CALL DAWN?

And then after all the shit she goes through in season 5, she finally gets a mom again. And it’s Tara. And she has two moms, really. And then they break up, so she has to deal with divorce. For the second time in her life. She she holds on to her mom Tara because Tara treats her like a person then Tara dies and Xander doesn’t even remember to CALL HER about Buffy/the shooting so she has no idea anything is wrong and she comes in to find Tara’s dead body and just wow.

Dawn is one of the most resilant characters on this show and this is not the best written of my posts but like, seriously. Dawn.

It is told among the wise that the First War began before Arda was full-shaped, and ere yet there was anything that grew or walked upon the earth; and for long Melkor had the upper hand. But in the midst of the war a spirit of great strength and hardihood came to the aid of the Valar, hearing in the far heaven that there was battle in the Little Kingdom; and Arda was filled with the sound of his laughter.

This passage from the beginning of "Of the Beginning of Days" (heh) describes the coming of the Vala Tulkas into Arda. When I re-read this passage, I was shocked because I noticed a phrase I had missed before that gives a rather surprising sense of perspective to the conflict in Middle-Earth. 

We are told that Tulkas, who was not in Arda but in the “far heaven,” wherever that might be, came to the aid of the Valar warring in the “Little Kingdom.” If we assume, as I do, that Arda includes Varda’s stars, it seems that the entire universe is “The Little Kingdom.” And since Tulkas had to “hear” about the conflict in Arda and did not immediately know of it, that suggests that there’s quite a lot more going on in the far heaven than simply the Music of the Ainur creating Arda; perhaps there are even other, similar projects at work and Tulkas just thought Arda was the most interesting. 

This reminds me of C.S. Lewis’ revelations about Narnia in The Magician’s Nephew, in which we discover that Narnia is only one universe in a vast multiverse mere humans cannot fathom.  If something similar is happening here, and Arda is indeed very “little” in the grand scheme of things, then the desire of Melkor, most powerful of the Ainur, to control Arda becomes almost laughable. While Melkor’s actions aren’t ultimately petty to the people of Arda he torments, it seems that in his greed and self-delusion Melkor hasn’t realized just how thoroughly he has demeaned himself and trapped himself in a tiny fortress in a tiny world in a (comparatively) tiny universe. 

Also: I love the tale of Tulkas as a primordial, classic hero who descends from heaven to save the world from peril and ends up staying out of love (as the other Valar did). I would love to read more about his adventures.

You don’t want to know how many times I had to read this before it made sense.

Reasons why grammar, punctuation, and capitalization matter.

You turned up on my doorstep with a new haircut and a suit. You took me to Verilian to see the singing towers. What a night that was. The towers sang and you cried. You wouldn’t tell me why, but I suppose you knew it was time. My time. Time to come to the Library. You even gave me your screwdriver.
