i want to be cute and well dressed and completely unapproachable
they’re out you guys! the first two volumes of the kanzenban edition are available for purchase!
the 20th anniversary official homepage is also live! http://sailormoon-official.com/
this theme of the best and brightest falling into darkness in the silmarillion reminds me of harvey dent’s arc. you know, the whole “you either die a hero or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain” line. christopher nolan did you read tolkien before making the dark knight?
oh yeah, and it makes so much more sense when elrond says stuff like “the time of the elves is over, my people are leaving these shores” in the lord of the rings if you’ve read the silmarillion because you would have already experienced the breadth of the elves’ history. without this backstory you don’t get the same sense of their age or understand why they’d want to leave. it’s no wonder tolkien initially wanted the silmarillion and the lord of the rings published together.
i wonder if someone at some point said to fëanor, “look at your life, look at your choices!” i mean, the guy made some seriously bad decisions.
also, i literally laughed out loud at the part where he abandons fingolfin at the helcaraxë because i imagined him saying ‘BYE BITCH’ to the noldor on the other side and then running away down into middle-earth while laughing gleefully. fëanor was a cold bitch you guys.
