I was too busy staring at you

Stesha/ Portland, OR/ all grown up.
This is a Tolkien blog, for the most part. I'm a hopeless (helpless) Bagginshield-shipper. I write and draw and obsess over Thorin's hair and Bilbo's overall perfection.

Le génie du mal [The genius of evil, aka; Lucifer]; Guillaume Geefs 

“The statue was originally a commission for Geefs’ younger brother Joseph, who completed it in 1842 and installed it the following year. It generated controversy at once and was criticized for not representing a Christian ideal.The cathedral administration declared that “this devil is too sublime.” The local press intimated that the work was distracting the “pretty penitent girls” who should have been listening to the sermons.” [x]

I like the idea of calling "There and Back Again" the whole trilogy and changing the last movie’s name into “The Battle of the Five Armies”… after all it’s probably going to be 1/2 of the whole movie, between preparation and actual battle… and it’s the ending point of the whole story too. so it seems fitting.

also, 25 minutes of extra scenes for DoS!!! that’s great news!!!
