The child actors in Harry Potter would do their actual schoolwork in the movie to make the school setting more real
In the course of a discussion with morbidyetdelightful the other day, I ended up headcanoning what all the dwarves are like to hug.
Thorin: epic, obviously, but rather nerve-wracking due to his tendency to yell at you intimidatingly just beforehand. That is probably the hilt of Orcrist poking you in the tummy. Don’t dwell on it.
Fili and Kili: SANDWICH HUGS EXTRAORDINAIRE.
Balin: Soft and cosy, with a surprising crinkling sound when you press against him and make contact with all the Werther’s Originals in his pockets. A shoulder-patter.
Dwalin: Initially hesitant, because he doesn’t want to crush you, but once he calibrates for the strength of your spine and ribcage, warm, firm and reassuring. See if you can get your head tucked in under his chin.
Oin: Does not understand you are asking for hugs. Shouts at you loudly and deafly for hitting him up for drugs. Just because he is the apothecary doesn’t mean he’s some kind of dealer.
Gloin: Gruff, brisk and beard-intensive. You may get tangled and have to be cut free.
Bifur: Very gentle and soothing; a hair-stroker. May get lost in thought and forget to disengage; will not be offended if you step back after a few minutes and move away.
Bofur: Warm, whiskery and bracing; widely considered the best spooner in the Company.
Bombur: Has some difficulty in hugging people frontally because of the swell of his belly versus the length of his arms, but the nifty thing is he can drop the loop of his beard over your head so it’s like his hair is giving you a hug too. Favours the one-armed side-hug.
Dori: In a domestic setting, Dori is difficult to hug because he’s always busy doing something for the comfort of others. You will probably need to dart in and hug him while he holds his Marigolded hands aloft trying not to drip on you. In all events, a very satisfying, slightly squashy hug, reminiscent of your childhood teddy-bear.
Nori: Wandering hands, but firm and warm.
Ori: Your personal koala.
Reblogging so I can come back to this. I swear it’s better than a basketful of wee kittens. Fuzzy kittens who don’t even have their eyes open yet but like to have their tummies tickled.
Aw, I’d like a Thorin, a Dwalin and a Bifur, please.
while i would very much like to partake of the Fili and Kili sandwich hug, I also feel like they should each get to hug separate people on occasion.
The sass is strong in Disney.
The truly magical moments of Disney.
i find my cosmic insignificance reassuring
the stars don’t fucking care who i am or what i do
i owe the universe nothing
i exist on my own terms
#when existentialism becomes comforting rather than horrifying
oh my god I finally understand why someone can have the key to your heart
because your heart is locked away inside of a chest
So I ran to the devil, he was waitin’
