And you're like, wtf Wuzzy, I saw this a month ago, what even are you doing. There's nothing to teach about this malarky, charging or not.

“Can I touch your butt” in Elvish.

This is so useful

No, this is not “Can I touch your butt” in Elvish. This is “Can I touch your butt?” in English, transcribed using the letters of the Elvish alphabet. There is a difference. 
In Elvish, the letters of the alphabet correspond to sounds, not to words. The above text spells it out using one symbol to represent one letter of the original English, which is incorrect:
c-a-n  i  t-o-u-c-h  y-o-u-r  b-u-t-t
If you really want to spell out an English phrase using the Elvish alphabet, you would do so phonetically, which would basically equate to one symbol per phoneme (sound):
c-a-n  a-i  t-u-ch  y-o-r  b-u-t
If you actually wanted to write “Can I touch your butt?” in Elvish, one (very rough) translation would be:

Annog nin daf pladan tele ci?

Which, in Sindarin Elvish, roughly translates to, “Would you give me permission to touch your rear?”
Written in tengwar (the Elvish alphabet), it would look like this:

Sorry for the blurry quality.

damn, the lotr fandom doesnt fuck around

wow

not to mention LOOK HOW POLITE THIS WAS 
LIKE GOOD LORD 
OLDEST FANDOMS REALLY ARE POLITEST

Fem!Ori - Katsucon 2014
Made and modelled by me
Photography by Lazy Cat Photography

I’d been dreaming about getting winter snow pictures of this cosplay since way back in May when I first started working on it for a summer convention. And while the big Katsu snowstorm made me almost a full day late for the con, I forgive it entirely for letting me take these amazing photos with Karina!! They turned out totally Erebor-tastic! Outside in the snow is the perfect place for Ori to read her favorite books and practice her aim at icicles~!

The Battle of Helm’s Deep already has its own official LEGO version, but the licensed set has nothing on this mind blowing set built by Lord of the Rings fans Rich-K and Big J.

As where the official LEGO version features 1,368 pieces, this custom job utilizes over 150,000 LEGO building blocks to recreate the classic scene from J.R.R. Tolkien’s epic novels. In addition to the staggering number of bricks used for the installation, Helm’s Deep also includes 1,700 minifgures. via io9

this makes me happy

Holy fuck

Like are you fucking kidding me, was this really necessary? Shit. Goddammit.
