“You fool. No man can kill me.”

How many times am I allowed to reblog this before it gets weird?

Fun facts: Tolkien constructed this scene because he came out of Macbeth thinking that Shakespeare had missed a golden opportunity with the ”Be bloody, bold, and resolute; laugh to scorn the power of man, for none of woman born shall harm Macbeth” prophecy

Being letdown by Macbeth is apparently a significant factor in Tolkien’s writing because the Ent/Huorn attack on Isengard was the result of his disappointment that the whole “til Birnam Wood come to Dunsinane” thing was just some dudes holding sticks and not actual ambulatory trees.

so he basically took his favorite shakespeare headcanons and put them into his AU fic

This revelation just knocked me over.

LET ME TELL YOU A THING ABOUT JOHN RONALD REUEL TOLKIEN. BACK THE FUCK UP SIT THE FUCK DOWN YOU KNOW NOTHING ABOUT ANYTHING YOU’RE FUCKING JON SNOW HERE. LET ME TELL U A THING

JONNY T WAS LITERALLY THE BIGGEST FANBOY TO EVER WALK THE EARTH. LITERALLY THIS FUCKIN NERD WENT INTO WORLD WAR ONE AND WROTE NORSEFIC EDDA FANFIC IN THE TRENCHES AND SENT IT TO ALL HIS FRIENDS WHO WERE PRESUMABLY LIKE “JOHN WHAT THE FUCK”

BUT IT DOESN’T END THERE

HIS WIFE? MADE HER AND HIMSELF INTO SELF-INSERT OCS IN SAID FIC. ALSO MADE HIMSELF A TOTAL TYR SELF INSERT CHARACTER. ALL VERY DRAMATIC. KEPT WRITING THIS FIC UNTIL IT WAS HUGE. AFTER HE DIED HIS SON PUBLISHED IT AND CALLED IT THE SILMARILLION. JRR YOU FUCKIN NERD

WAIT I’M NOT FUCKING DONE YET. TREEBEARD? BASED THE WAY HE TALKED OF HIS OLD FRIEND JACK WHO YOU ALL MIGHT KNOW AS CS LEWIS. THAT’S RIGHT. THAT NARNIA MOTHERFUCKER. WROTE HIM INTO LORD OF THE RINGS AKA THE SEQUEL TO THE SEQUEL OF HIS ORIGINAL FANFIC MASTERPIECE. CS LEWIS FUCKING HATED LORD OF THE RINGS. TOLKIEN FUCKING HATED NARNIA. BASICALLY THEY STARTED THE OXFORD PROFESSOR LIVEJOURNAL CLUB AND THEY FLAMED EACH OTHER’S SHIT RELENTLESSLY YET REMAINED BFFS

SHELOB? FUCKING TARANTULA BIT J-TIDDY ON THE FOOT WHEN HE WAS LIKE 3. WROTE IT INTO LORD OF THE RINGS.

HIS AUNT’S HOUSE? NAMED BAG END. YEAH YOU GUESSED IT WROTE IT INTO LORD OF THE RINGS

THIS FUCKING DORKUS SUPREME MADE UP HIS OWN LANGUAGE. WAIT NO IM WRONG. HE MADE UP LIKE 80 LANGUAGES AND DIALECTS AND ALPHABETS AND SHIT 

BEST PART OF ALL?? HIS OWN LAST NAME, TOLKIEN, WAS DERIVED FROM THE GERMAN “TOLKHUN” MEANING “FOOLHARDY”. DOES THAT RING A BELL TO ANYONE FAMILIAR TO LORD OF THE RINGS??? BECAUSE YOU SHOULD KNOW THAT PEREGRIN “PIPPIN” TOOK’S LIKE FUCKING CATCHPHRASE WAS “FOOL OF A TOOK”. TOLKIEN FIC’D HIS OWN FAMILIAL LINGUISTIC HISTORY INTO HIS WORK WHAT A DWEEB

IN 2008 HE RANKED 6TH ON A LIST OF THE TOP 50 BRITISH WRITERS SINCE 1945. HE WAS A PROFESSOR OF LANGUAGES AND OTHER IMPORTANT STUFFY SHIT AT OXFORD

AND JRR TOLKIEN WAS THE BIGGEST DWEEB EVER TO LIVE

THE END

'I have no idea where these people get the notion that Harold is anything but a saint' Hacked ARPANET? Grace? Refused to help Nathan with Irrelevant List? (Someone actually said it was creepy that he was happy with Grace while Nathan and The Numbers were suffering) But again, in comparison with some people's good side (that stupid kid from 2 pi r!!! and some other idiots), his bad side is not so bad.

ARPANET was a criminal action for morally righteous reasons.  Just as Saints have worked miracles on the Sabbath (againat the law) to heal the sick (morally good)

Grace. Yeah he was selfish to want a friend., But he never meant to do anything but love her. He couldn’t because of his past deeds. But if a person jumps into the ocean to save a drowning man but the person isn’t a strong enough swimmer to reach the man- is the person Bad? Not being able to complete a worthy task does not mean Harold was a bad person only a flawed person.

Working the Irrelevants List is suicide. Suicide is a sin. So not helping the Irrelevants Lists was the sane, and righteous act.

So no, Harold has never acted with malice. All his actions have been with NO INTENT TO HARM. Just because sh!t got real and out of control does not reflect on Harold but on the world around him.

asks:
Is it just my imagination or Nathan actually emotionally manipulated Harold? (God Mode, maybe some other examples)

Yup. 

Nathan took 9-11 and turned it into a cursade that he sent Harold on by himself. What a nice guy Nathan is. Taking a National tragedy, saying out loud that someone needs to create something to save the world, then abandoning Harold to do all the work. Yup! Nice guy Nathan.

Or how he completely lied about how much He wanted to get back with his wife and that work keeps him going. Well, the Co-Ed Nathan lied about knowing seemed to be lifting his spirits. Presenting himself as the dutiful husband when in fact he was a womanizer is a form of manipulation. Harold wouldn’t dump a man when he is down! 

And nice calling the man you tasked with programming the machine a recluse and poor judge of people. Nice Guy Nathan.

:/

Fun fact: if you approach an employee and insist that they go ‘check the back’ for an item that’s not on the shelf, there is a 90% chance that they’ll go to the back room, scratch their ass and check their text messages for five minutes, and come back out with a sympathetic smile and a ‘Sorry!’ because they know without even looking that the stock isn’t there.

Or the old “can you ask a manager?”

don’t say you’re a writer if you just write fanfiction for your entertainment. you’re only a writer if you kill a bear with a typewriter to appease the spirit of hemingway and slather yourself in ink in tribute to shakespeare, the one true over-penis of literature.

*Young Harold was also awful, btw. He didn't care for his dad* ??? Unlike some young people he actually cared for his dad, instead of whining how his great talent is buried in this hole (he didn't even think about himself!) and blaming everyone around him including his own father. And I really like this about him

Agreed. I have no idea where these people get the notion that Harold is anything but a saint.

I've always thought that Reese fell in love with Finch by Super. But when I rewatch the IFT scene in Ghosts I'm not so sure. Because, OMG!!! THE HEART EYES!! But, again, Harold is ADORABLE.

Reese fell in LUST during Ghosts. But he fell in LOVE during Super.
