RT @dr_mikki: #asksmaug if you were accumulating your own dragon’s hoard, what would you want as the prize of your collection?The invincible dragon’s got to rule them all surely.Smart. Original. Mod. RT @_LauraHolmes_: #AskSmaug How would you describe Martin Freeman in 3 words?More than I can say in a tweet. RT @RachelFerron_TW: #AskSmaug how much do you love your fans?RT @vereentjoeng: Cumbercupcake: Benedict in Red Velvet Suit on Red Velvet cupcake yum! #HobbitPremiere #AskSmaug pic.twitter.com/B39JhSZHadAn astonishing addition to the edible collection.

XI’m quite happy being a dragon, thanks. Oh, and the Necromancer - a disembodied spirit of evil. Less time in the make-up chair!Is twitter treating you okay? @holmesexuals Yes, so let’s break it.#AskSmaug What kind of music do you think Smaug would enjoy? @PondsAt221B Liberace.

literature meme — four tropes [1/4]
“I do not want to be relieved from any obligation,’ said he, goaded by her calm manner. ‘Fancied, or not fancied — I question not myself to know which—I choose to believe that I owe my very life to you — ay — smile, and think it an exaggeration if you will. I believe it, because it adds a value to that life to think — oh, Miss Hale!’ continued he, lowering his voice to such a tender intensity of passion that she shivered and trembled before him, ‘to think circumstance so wrought, that whenever I exult in existence henceforward, I may say to myself, All this gladness in life, all honest pride in doing my work in the world, all this keen sense of being, I owe to her!” And it doubles the gladness, it makes the pride glow, it sharpens the sense of existence till I hardly know if it is pain or pleasure, to think that I owe it to one—nay, you must, you shall hear’—said he, stepping forwards with stern determination—’to one whom I love, as I do not believe man ever loved woman before.’ — North and South
"I can listen no longer in silence. I must speak to you by such means as are within my reach. You pierce my soul. I am half agony, half hope. Tell me not that I am too late, that such precious feelings are gone for ever. I offer myself to you again with a heart even more your own than when you almost broke it, eight years and a half ago. Dare not say that man forgets sooner than woman, that his love has an earlier death. I have loved none but you. Unjust I may have been, weak and resentful I have been, but never inconstant. You alone have brought me to Bath. For you alone, I think and plan. Have you not seen this? Can you fail to have understood my wishes? I had not waited even these ten days, could I have read your feelings, as I think you must have penetrated mine." — Persuasion
After a silence of several minutes, he came towards her in an agitated manner, and thus began,”In vain have I struggled. It will not do. My feelings will not be repressed. You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you.” — Pride and Prejudice
"I tell you I must go!" I retorted, roused to something like passion. "Do you think I can stay to become nothing to you? Do you think I am an automaton?—a machine without feelings? and can bear to have my morsel of bread snatched from my lips, and my drop of living water dashed from my cup? Do you think, because I am poor, obscure, plain, and little, I am soulless and heartless? You think wrong!—I have as much soul as you,—and full as much heart! And if God had gifted me with some beauty and much wealth, I should have made it as hard for you to leave me, as it is now for me to leave you. I am not talking to you now through the medium of custom, conventionalities, nor even of mortal flesh;—it is my spirit that addresses your spirit; just as if both had passed through the grave, and we stood at God’s feet, equal,—as we are!" — Jane Eyre
