my headcanon here is that legolas is just BARELY visibly holding it together
since canon tells us that mirkwood elves like to party and are fully capable of passing out from drunk
so legolas is using EVERYTHING HE HAS to fuck with gimli and pretend he hasn’t a clue what it’s like to be affected by alcohol
while inside he’s all ‘sdkla;hgsj you can do this leggles you can do this’
‘don’t think about that time you blacked out from dorwinion wine while naked in the middle of an impromptu archery contest’
‘and all your friends drew orc penises on your face’‘and when you woke up you were halfway to dale without a clue as to how you got there’
‘And especially don’t think about that time you drank so much that the dwarves you were supposed to be watching escaped in the empty barrels of wine.’
‘Dad never let me hear the end of that one’
While all of the above is great, I’d like to offer that dwaven ‘ale’ probably isn’t made from barley. they live underground. what grows underground? Mushrooms. I’m saying Dwarven Ale is halucinogenic. I’m saying Legolas was tripping balls.
So I’ve been rewatching the entire series while taking note of John’s hand tremors and then I came to this scene
We can see his right hand clenching in reaction to Sherlock’s offer for a handshake. But the thing is, that’s not the tremor hand. That’s not the hand that would start to shake whenever he’s feeling weak, helpless, vulnerable. The tremor always happens in his left hand, as Mycroft would confirm:
I do love the right-hand clench. It’s an understandable reaction; that hand is going to touch his beloved’s for possibly the last time in his life. But it’s not what I’ve specifically been looking out for. I’m looking for the hand that trembles when he’s reminded of how much war had changed him,
the hand that trembles as he’s begging for his best friend to not be dead,
and the hand that trembles when he has to confront the lies of the woman he’d made his wife.
It’s a shame we can’t see his left hand when Sherlock offers that final handshake. Like if it starts acting up and is shaking like crazy we wouldn’t know because it’s hidden from vie-OH WAIT NEVERMIND I DID SEE IT
Conclusions: Martin Freeman’s acting is fucking ridiculous, and the tarmac scene can go straight to hell
Deadpool Annual (2014) #2
I am literally just sitting here with my mouth hanging open.
1) is capable of human relationships, be they romantic, platonic, or anywhere in between.
2) considers Spiderman his friend, even if Peter’s a little leery on the subject.
3) Would kill for his friends. Has killed for his friends.
4) Is awesome.
And I could see any hard core horse riding enthusiast going “What are you doing!? That’s not how you ride!”
I guess he’s trying to blend in and not be the
centaur of attention
Look at this
I’ve never made this connection before…at the beginning of DH Hermione tells Ron and Harry how a wizard who’d split his soul could heal himself, save himself…remorse
Harry James you precious baby
I’ve read this second bit before, the whole try for some remorse thing, and thought it was just a Harry stabbing in the dark, but nO
It was so calculated
He remembered that conversation
actual, possible redemption for Voldemort
he kept that hope, however slim, that Voldemort could be saved
before they cast their final curses, after all that happened, Harry was actually trying to get Voldemort to mend himself back together
Harry james potter you compassionate jerk trying to save your mortal enemy before he utterly and finally destroys himself
