16) Rivendell or Lothlorien?

Rivendell. Lothlorien is lovely, but honestly I think it’s too alien and too…Elvish for me to ever feel comfortable there. Plus my fear of heights plus the flets is just really not a good combination. Rivendell is really my perfect place - the beautiful home, the valley, the trees, the river…it’s just perfect.

33) When did you first watch the movies? And the books?

I first read the books in 2000 when I was 11 years old, right before Fellowship of the Ring came out in theaters. My friend mentioned that she’d started this really awesome series of books and I decided to give it a try, and ended up finishing it before she did. Then I saw Fellowship when it first came out theaters and…well it’s been downhill from that point.

43) Your response when someone thinks LOTR is too boring?

A deep, heavy sigh followed by me trying to convince them to get past Book 1 in Fellowship. Because really, once you get past the Council of Elrond it’s all smooth sailing from there.

ijustwanttobeperceivedthewayiam replied to your post: top five songs at the moment?

i like bedroom hymns! i shall have to check the rest out too :)

adore that song. It’s just so…visceral, so powerful, I honestly can’t even describe it. It’s not even a song about sex, it is sex, made real in musical form.

And after writing the story that went along with it, I now have an extremely embarrassing Pavlovian reaction to it as well. Let’s just say it’s probably for the best if I never hear it in public.

So at first when I saw this gif I was like 90% sure you were actually mad at me and got really upset, but then Misha laughed and it was all good. Basically, this is the most accurate and effective gif ever.

ijustwanttobeperceivedthewayiam replied to your postYour second set of three: 4) Venture Bros 5) Adventure time 6) AVENGERS.

YAY I didn’t piss people off. I CONSIDER THIS A SUCCESS. :D

ijustwanttobeperceivedthewayiam reblogged your photo: It was one of those rare spring days in London…

Oh stop, did you write this, mirabile? (i keep wanting…call you Mira.) GORGEOUS :3

I did, and thank you! :D I was inspired by Lexie’s fantastic art, as I frequently am, and so absurdly fluffy fluff was born.

And feel free to call me Mira if you like, or Brittany, or whatever else floats your boat. I’m not picky!

Why can't you write? [i'm in the same spot, actually, because i hit a sticking point in the plot which must be resolved by research i can't conduct at this moment.] In other news, i'm sorry you're bored but i'm glad you're back on tumblr and passed your class(es?)!

You know those nights when you can’t quite concentrate on anything even though you want to? Yeah, I just can’t get my brain to focus enough to create any sort of coherent words despite my best efforts. Hopefully it’ll only be for tonight and I can get back on the horse tomorrow, because I really do have a ton of things I should be working on.

And thanks! I’m very glad to have passed my class (by the skin of my teeth) and that I’m back here! :D

ijustwanttobeperceivedthewayiam replied to your post: The facts were these. Sherlock Holmes, world’s…

wait, but crossover with what? this sounds fantastic!!!

It’s the beginning of what will (hopefully) be a crossover with the show Pushing Daisies, which is absolutely wonderful and if you haven’t seen it I cannot recommend it enough. There are only two seasons because it was cancelled (a fact that still makes me weep at the injustice of it all), but it’s a magnificent show. There’s a masterpost with links to all the episodes here if you’re interested. (seriously though do watch it, it’ll change your life it’s so good)

1) your URL/title is amazing. 2) Where does "pedibus celerem et pernicibus alis" come from?

1) Thanks, I’m glad you like it!

2) It’s a line from the Aeneid, and it translates to “with swift feet and nimble wings”. It’s used to describe the goddess Fama, or Rumor, in the fourth book when she’s flying throughout Africa to spread the story of the relationship between Dido and Aeneas. Examining Fama was a big part of my senior thesis that I was writing when I made the blog, and I thought that line was appropriate.
