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.

Sleeping Warrior AU: Aurora falls in love with Mulan and Ping, not realizing they are the same person.
The adventures of me wearing my graphic tees/dresses that have to do with video games or shows while working at Hot Topic. True story today.
Guys, stop doing this. It makes you 20000000 times less likely to pick up a girl. Stop “checking” us and let us love our things.
let someone do that to me
All of this ^ and also, also? You are actually allowed to wear a shirt/dress/whatever with movie franchise, video game series, or comic book character that you want. This nerd policing is sexist and just patently ridiculous. You wouldn’t walk up to someone in a Yale sweatshirt and ask, “Did you even really go there? OK, what’s the mascot’s name? Which college did you live in?” You wouldn’t walk up to someone in a Cubs t-shirt and say, “I bet you’ve never even been to a game at Wrigley Field. I bet you don’t even know Ryne Sandberg’s stats. I bet you don’t even know who Harry Caray is other than an SNL skit. Ugh. Fake sports fans.” (Though I do know women are routinely questioned about whether they “really” like sports or are just pretending to catch a man.)
You are allowed to just really, really like the Batman logo and wear a Batman t-shirt. And anyone who tells you otherwise or tries to “make sure” you really know what you like can fuck right off.
Re-identification of Viking corpses has revealed that half of their warriors were female.
"Researchers at the University of Western Australia decided to revamp the way they studied Viking remains. Previously, researchers had misidentified skeletons as male simply because they were buried with their swords and shields. (Female remains were identified by their oval brooches, and not much else.) By studying osteological signs of gender within the bones themselves, researchers discovered that approximately half of the remains were actually female warriors, given a proper burial with their weapons.”
Women have always fought. We have always been there, ‘contributing to history’. Our own, modern sexism contributes to the erasure of it.
