“She’s so stupid! She doesn’t even know how to behave in public! I hate her so much. She better quit acting and learn how to smile more!”
“Oh my god, she’s so awesome. She’s perfect, please have another oscar for your life and all the choices you make! I LOVE YOU!”
oh lord, how about we stop pitting two intelligent women against each other? WE CAN HAVE TWO SCOOPS OF ICE CREAM, NOT JUST ONE.
I just see this as more proof that Brenna needs to actually write that rps high school AU.
A GUY CALLS KRISTEN A SLUT AT SCHOOL (THERE WAS A RUMOR THAT SHE FUCKED SOME GIRL’S DUMB BOYFRIEND, BUT SHE DOESN’T REALLY GO FOR THAT, AND ALSO WHO CARES) AND EVERYONE IN THE HALLWAY LAUGHS. AT LEAST IT FEELS THAT WAY, AND SHE LOOKS FOR JENNIFER’S FACE IN THE CROWD, THINKING THE WORST, THAT SHE’LL BE LAUGHING TOO, THAT HIGH SCHOOL IS THICKER THAN WHATEVER TENUOUS FRIENDSHIP THEY’VE STRUCK UP, BUT JENNIFER ISN’T IN THE HALL THEN, KRISTEN IS COMPLETE ALONE. KRISTEN’S THE ONE WHO GETS DETENTION FOR FLIPPING THAT ASSHOLE OFF, AND NOT HIM FOR BEING A HUGE ASSHOLE. GOD, SHE CAN’T STAND PEOPLE. PEOPLE CAN CALL HER NAMES ALL DAMN DAY BUT THE SECOND SHE DOES SOMETHING BACK, SHE’S THE ONE WHO GETS IN TROUBLE.
JENNIFER TURNS UP RIGHT WHEN KRISTEN IS GETTING HER DETENTION SLIP.
“WHAT’S UP?” JENNIFER SAYS.
“NOTHING,” KRISTEN SAYS, JUST AS THE TEACHER STARTS EXPLAINING, LIKE A HAUGHTY FUCKING BITCH, THAT KRISTEN MADE A RUDE GESTURE TO A FELLOW CLASSMATE AND THAT SHE’S BEING PUNISHED FOR IT.
JENNIFER’S FACE CHANGES WITH UNDERSTAND AND RECOGNITION.
“OH, YOU MEAN LIKE THIS?” SHE SAYS AS SHE FLIPS THE TEACHER THE BIRD RIGHT IN HER FACE. EVERYONE IN THE HALLWAY SEES IT AND CHEERS. KRISTEN CHEERS INSIDE HERSELF BUT IS ALSO UPSET THAT SHE DOESN’T GET CHEERS WHEN SHE DOES THE SAME THING. ALMOST THE SAME THING. BUT SHE ADMIRES JENNIFER IN THIS MOMENT, NOT LIKE SHE WANTS TO BE HER, BUT SHE WANTS TO BE NEXT TO HER LIKE THIS, ALL THE TIME.
THEY’RE NOT ALLOWED TO SIT NEXT TO EACH OTHER IN DETENTION BUT JENNIFER KICKS NOTES TO HER THE ENTIRE TIME. SHE CAN’T HELP BUT SMILE EVERY TIME A NEW NOTE HITS HER SHOE. EVEN THOUGH SHE GOT CALLED A SLUT AND DETENTION IN THE SAME DAY, KRISTEN FEELS SO LIGHT AND HAPPY ABOUT EVERYTHING. NOBODY’S EVER GOTTEN IN TROUBLE FOR HER BEFORE.

Why didn’t the Eagles just take the Fellowship directly to Mordor?
- Eagles are very proud and noble creatures who refused to get involved in the wars of men. Gandalf was only able to ride them because he was a Maiar, a semi-divine spirit, who the Lord of the Eagles, Gwaihir, owed a favor because Gandalf had once saved him from a poisoned arrow.
- The Fellowship was supposed to travel in secret. Sauron only knew that the Ring had left Gollum’s cave for the Shire, and was now somewhere else. Large eagles flying into Mordor would have tipped off Sauron and, most importantly, the Nazgul, which no creature could out-maneuver. The Nazgul would have killed the eagles and taken the Ring to Sauron.
FUCKING THANK YOU! When people make this stupid argument I just
My niggliest pet peeve about The Hobbit is why couldn’t we shorten the storm giants scene, which has no effect on the plot, by 40 seconds, and put in a 40 second scene where this happens:
Bilbo: Can’t they take us any further, Gandalf?
Gandalf: One does not ask favors of an Eagle lightly, Mr. Baggins. Least of all Gwaihir the Windlord and his hunters.
Because, seriously, the movies make it look like Gandalf can just freakin’ manifest giant eagles on a whim, but not when it would be most useful. The movies don’t even affirm that they are sentient, much less that they have a kingdom and politics. Rarrrr nerdery.
