I went ahead and did The Hobbit Fan Contest film, fittingly on Bilbo’s birthday. Thought I’d share it here for the heck of it :P
HI I’M ACTUALLY FIVE YEARS OLD AND SPENT ALL DAY PLAYING WITH MY LEGOS
happy birthday bagginses!!
Today in Middle-Earth: A long-expected party! The hundred and twenty-ninth birthday of Bilbo and Frodo’s fifty-first birthday. (September 22nd, 3019 T.A.)
Then Thursday, September the 22nd, actually dawned. The sun got up, the clouds vanished, flags were unfurled and the fun began.
Bilbo Baggins called it a party, but it was really a variety of entertainments rolled into one. Practically everybody living near was invited. A very few were overlooked by accident, but as they turned up all the same, that did not matter. Many people from other parts of the Shire were also asked; and there were even a few from outside the borders. Bilbo met the guests (and additions) at the new white gate in person.
When every guest had been welcomed and was finally inside the gate, there were songs, dances, music, games, and, of course, food and drink. There were three official meals: lunch, tea, and dinner (or supper). But lunch and tea were marked chiefly by the fact that at those times all the guests were sitting down and eating together. At other times there were merely lots of people eating and drinking – continuously from elevenses until six-thirty, when the fireworks started.
The fireworks were by Gandalf: they were not only brought by him, but designed and made by him; and the special effects, set pieces, and flights of rockets were let off by him.
The moment that you realize Agent 13’s cover was not an accident. Stay classy, S.H.I.E.L.D. :/
THAT’S JUST MEAN.
OH MY DO YOU KNOW WHAT MAKES THIS EVEN WORSE???
Steve’s reaction to Kate/Sharon’s statement is completely a skinny!Steve reaction covered with humor. His gut instinct is “s—t, I gotta stay away bc it is highly probable I will get sick and die” quickly followed by “no I can’t get sick anymore better smile like it’s a joke.” So he kind of half-laughs and says, “I’ll keep my distance then.”
And he can pass it off, and he can maybe—-ooOHHHH F—K I JUST REALIZED.
LATER ON STEVE’S FLASHBACK IS ABOUT HIS MOTHER’S FUNERAL. I am sure there are/were many, many, many moments in the course of Steve’s life in which Bucky said things like, “I’m with you to the end of the line” (the fact that he uses it in that scene and that Steve uses it in the fight with Bucky at the end suggests that phrase was something they said to each other more than once), but the one that we see IS HIS MOTHER’S DEATH. THIS IS PROBABLY BECAUSE OF THAT TRIGGERING COMMENT. STEVE HAS PROBABLY BEEN SADLY THINKING ABOUT HIS MOM AND THEN BUCKY SHOWS UP AND OHHH MYYY.
HEY HO HOW ABOUT NO?
OH MY NO
SHIELD NO WHY
Even if they had been PERFECTLY LEGIT AND NOT HYDRA, this is why I would have been pissed at SHIELD. They created Sharon’s cover specifically to manipulate Steve.
The occasion asked for it.
HAPPY HOBBIT DAY DEAR MIDDLE-EARTH INHABITANTS!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY FRODO AND BILBO! (I love you two so much it hurts)
Happy Birthday to two of my dearest and most beloved characters ever. May Eru always guide your paths! And happy Tolkien Week and Hobbit Day to everyone!!
Hey the thing I reblogged earlier reminded me to mention this:
I can promise all my followers that I do not post or reblog jump scares, ever, because A) I don’t like them and they suck, and B) I know at least a few of my followers have anxiety in one form or another and I’m not going to be that jerk.
So yes. There will be no jump scares from this blog, just wanted to ease your minds preemptively.
