I'm an expat fan who A) believes that a little mug of beer wouldn't do us any harm and B) likes big butts and cannot lie.

I'm currently living in Korea and devoting serious fan energy to LotR/The Hobbit. Oh, and I'm married to this guy.

One of my students just brought in two (cooked) ears of corn, and when I asked her what they were for, she got flustered and ran away.

Should… should I eat them, or…?

Well, got the email equivalent of a call-back/initial interview for one position… in an extremely short turn-around time.

Not sure whether to whether to be excited because I’m desperate or worried because they seem desperate.

Okay but I really really want to do the Hobbit reverse bang and really really have no idea what I want to do. There are too many options, how is it even possible to choose one?

THIS, exactly. UGH. I don’t know, i just…. AGLSDFLDFBLDFJB

I want to draw all the things!

I KNOW RIGHT. My heart is too full of too many dwarves to make this kind of decision.

Why is applying for jobs so nerve-wracking?

I mean, you’re sending them what they asked for, and either you’re a good fit or you aren’t. And yet!

Because it’s a talent show, sorta, except your livelihood depends on it. So like if you lose, you don’t eat. Kind of a big deal. :/

Oh god, I understand now. Basically, I am well aware what an unlikable nerd I am, and I know I could never win a talent show, so my fear is a completely legitimate response to the fact that I won’t be able to feed myself in five weeks when my current job ends.

That’s uh… that’s pretty motivating, actually. Gotta convince some employer that I’m a likeable nerd.

So very, very late for Dworin Week, but I finally have some time to draw again and am working on catching up!
Thanks again to pazithigallifreya for the prompt, even though this ended up being less “bros at Erebor” and more “bros who whisper sweet nothings in each other’s ears at Erebor.” Mea culpa >_<.

Lolita dwarves: 4/13, Balin
Because I love him the most out of all the Hobbit dwarves, Balin ended up with the dress I would most want to wear.

Aw man, I was going to spend the night trying to finish up a couple of these fanart WIPs, but we got an invite from one of our RL bros to go to dinner. Experience tells me this can only mean one thing: this night will end in a drink-a-thon.

Well, no helping it. Get ready for some queued art.

It’s hard to think that this is the same guy who played Lord Elrond

actually I find it a source of constant joy

Is anyone still interested in having another movie night, with this movie? Anytime this weekend works for me if anyone else is in.

I’m so in. I’m free allllll day Sunday, and my hubby will not be around to distract me from this most important film… this would be a lovely graduation present PLEEEZE

Hell yes, I love this movie! I am free any time until Sunday night until around midnight (EST), at least if I’m doing timezone conversions right >_<. I don’t promise not to sing along, though—and I warn you, my singing voice is terrible.

I put &#8220;McKittericks&#8221; in here and this is what I got.
I feel like the only logical response is to draw Gimli/Legolas inspired by it.

Look at this amazing panel highlight of John Rhys Davies (Gimli) and Peter Hambleton (Gloin) acting out a scene that should have been in The Hobbit.

OMG that last line *dies*

I am weeping, just weeping.  I would enjoy “An Unexpected Journey” x100 more if it contained this scene.

I’m about to teach my last class ever at my main school and feeling super mopey about it.

Even thinking about the upcoming month off isn’t cheering me up (well, much). I just want to cling to my desk and beg them not to send me away.

I always thought Tharkay/Laurence was my Temeraire OTP&#8212;until I thought of rule 63!Tharkay/Laurence.
