okay so first we have this stuff i drew like a month ago, some book scenes. when the internet first left me i had the hobbit open on my desk and i found some interesting thorin scenes so i drew them. his outfit in the first one is the one we’ve seen for him in taba but the colors are changed to match my color symbolism theory shit

now it’s time for ‘quotes for context’:

'The Arkenstone! The Arkenstone!' murmured Thorin in the dark, half dreaming with his chin upon his knees. 'It was like a globe with a thousand facets; it shone like silver in the firelight, like water in the sun, like snow under the stars, like rain upon the Moon!'

And all the while they talked Bilbo became more and more unhappy and his foreboding grew.

At last he interrupted them. ‘I am sure we are very unsafe here,’ he said, ‘and I don’t see the point of sitting here. The dragon has withered all the pleasant green, and anyway the night has come and it is cold. But I feel it in my bones that this place will be attacked again. Smaug knows now how I came down to his hall, and you can trust him to guess where the other end of the tunnel is. He will break all this side of the Mountain to bits, if necessary, to stop up our entrance, and if we are smashed with it the better he will like it.’

'You are very gloomy, Mr Baggins!' said Thorin.

(so on and so on)

wow one of my textbooks is telling me to assign students a fanfiction assignment and its description of fanfic is a ma azing

The fan fiction sites are fascinating, especially Fan fiction is a phenomenon that was around long before the Internet [yes when people wrote spirk slash]; however, it is becoming [becoming?] a popular vehicle for young readers and writers. Essentially, fans write fictional pieces in the same vein as their idols and publish these pieces online. For example, Harry Potter fans have the opportunity to make up fiction about the famous magician; fans have written about Harry’s married life with Ginny, his early years with the Dursleys, his inner monologues, and so on, in the manner of J.K. Rowling. In this manner, fans can fill in gaps, write from the perspective of secondary characters, and/or extend of elaborate on specific scenes. [LOL THAT’S NOT ALL THEY WRITE ABOUT LADY] Fans can also write literary crossovers (e.g., Harry Potter in Dante’s Inferno) [why]

There are rules for fan fiction. Fans cannot contribute pieces “out of canon,” meaning fans must be true to the author or genre [um, not true. not true at all. PRETTY SURE THERE’S A LOT LESS SEX IN HARRY POTTER THAN FANFIC WOULD LEAD YOU TO BELIEVE]. Pieces generally include the following components: disclaimer, peer-review process (space for comments), rating, short commentary about context, and a request for reviews. True to their stage of development, adolescent fan fiction writers want approval and feedback. These writers are doing everything that we want them to do in the classroom: They are negotiating and navigating texts and they are writing and revising based on critical feedback. Why not make this a classroom assignment? [lol no]

so there you have it. The academic view of fanfic, ladies and gentlemen
