okay but a story about an asexual pirate who gets made fun of by the crew until he saves all of them from sirens
A pirate for the adventure, not the booty
oh my god i want that on a bumper sticker
Trying to pilot a ship here. Thanks.
(Balan is Bëor’s original name - I’m not sure when in the timeline this happens, and anyway I think he still thinks of himself as Balan).
Balan tried again, fruitlessly, to shuffle further under the lip of rock. Another boom of thunder overhead made him wince, and rub the water off his neck.
‘Stop enjoying yourself,’ he complained.
‘I swear that one shook the whole sky from here to the mountains,’ said Finrod, not seeming to notice that there was rain running down his face. ‘It makes you feel so small…’
‘Mostly makes me feel wet and cold.’
Another flash of light, and this time he saw the blinding white crack, like the sky was splintering. He glanced at Finrod, who of course, was grinning.
‘So…is there some Valar in charge of this, and there’s a big story about them…?’ Balan asked.
‘No. Well, probably yes. I just like thunderstorms. They remind me how big the world is,’ Finrod said. ‘I’ve been told it’s not normal before, don’t worry.’
He’d probably been told hundreds of years ago, in his land of light. Balan shook his head.
‘Well, you’re not very normal, m’Lord.’
Finrod looked at him. ‘Is that an insult, or…?’
‘I’m honestly not sure right now,’ said Balan.
This time when Finrod grinned, he grinned back.
Did I somehow miss this?? Or jsut read it and not reblog?? Either way I am remiss in my duties!!! But YAY FINROD!!!
Death of old age is confusing and terrifying to elves. But to Bëor…it’s kind of about freakin’ time.
I have extremely complex, mixed feelings about the Edain and death. I guess they can be represented by Bëor and Andreth. Bëor is totally fine with moving on. Andreth is very not fine. And…I don’t really think either of them are wrong. I think wanting to live is okay. I think being ready to die is okay too. So this is…some of my thoughts and feelings. I could say part one, but that would imply a part two which may never happen.
Also, I’ve called him “Bëor” throughout, although I’m pretty sure his children would still think of him as “Balan” (or y’know, “Dad”). I’m pretty sure Finrod would’ve kept calling him that too, in fact. To be perfectly honest, I called him Bëor in this because if I was having Balan and Baran talk to each other I would definitely cock up several times, and it’d make no sense.
tall people: if we are walking together please take into consideration my tiny legs. i cant keep up with you. please think of my tiny legs i dont want to be jogging to keep up with your leisurely stroll you TITANS
See now, I’m the shortest out of my besties and I have adapted to walk to their speed or faster. Now people walking with me get a free cardio workout.
