When you get this, post it publicly with five nice things about yourself and send it to ten of your favorite followers! Have fun ^_^

This is really sweet, ok so five things about me 

  1. I love to listen to audiobooks, my top three are Harry Potter read by Stephen Fry, The Dresden Files Series read by James Marsters and finally The Kingkiller Chronicles read by Rupert Degas
  2. I’m a decent cook and I like to make dinner for my friends. I mostly make traditional Danish food and every year on the first of advent I have a get together with my friends with homemade mulled wine and lots of different types of cookies.
  3. I study psychology & counselling and am pretty good at it. My teacher says that I naturally have a high level of empathy and good body language that makes me seem genuine.
  4. I’m a TCK, because of this i’m fascinated by different cultures which lead me to study anthropology and be very open-minded and tolerant.
  5. I have a severe anxiety disorder but even while struggling to cope I try my best to be there for my friends when they’re having a hard time, which sometimes leads to people using me, but i’m trying to get better at setting boundaries and standing up for myself.

I think Hiccup and Astrid are the best animated couple ever.

I love how their relationship isn’t a major plot point for the films. Astrid isn’t there as a reward for the hero, she is also his best friend (next to Toothless of course). She didn’t stop being a warrior after she became a love interest (and Hiccup wouldn’t want her to, he loves her for it).

They talk about their problems. They fight their enemies together. And they trust each other.

Something that I’m just noticing from these gifs. They actually lean their cheeks into the kisses, opposed to just letting the other do all the work.  That’s something actual couples do when they know each other well enough to know it’s coming.  I love this.

OKAY HERE WE GO. 
First of all, Boromir did not want power. Yes, he wanted the ring. But so did like… half of Middle Earth. Because that is the very essence of the ring - One Ring to Rule Them All. It has almost a life about it, and a kind of draw that brings people in. Many people believe that it only has a draw of power, but that is not so. In many cases, the desire of the ring does not come from power at all; it comes from a desire of hope and change. 

In Boromir’s case, he did not want power. He wanted to help his people. His life completely revolved around making his father happy and bringing pride to Gondor. It was a falling city, scrambling to keep its fingernails on the edge of failure. He saw the ring as an opportunity to bring his kingdom back to what it used to be. Not as an opportunity to rule over others. The ring is very misleading in this case. People are drawn to it for a variety of reasons. His reasoning for wanting the ring was noble and just. 

SECONDLY. BOROMIR IS A MAN OF VALIANCE AND COURAGE AND COMPASSION. This is shown ALL through the novels and the film adaptation. And assuming you have only seen the movies, based on your absolutely ridiculous assessment of this character, I’m going to use the movies to demonstrate why he’s not as evil as you seem to think. 1) HE IS VERY CONCERNED ABOUT THE HOBBITS. He’s the one that suggests they get to better terrain to make sure the hobbits don’t freeze. And not just Frodo so the ring stays in tact, but all of them. In fact at one point he’s holding Merry and Pippin close to him to keep them warm. OPENING YOUR ARMS TO SOMEONE IS AN EXTREME SHOW OF GOOD WILL. 2) He made a mistake. And when Frodo finally escapes his rage-blinded gaze, Boromir falls onto the ground and sorrowfully mutters “What have I done.” showing that this is not who he usually is; that he’s done something that his character would not usually allow. 3) He fights to his DEATH to PROTECT the hobbits. NOT JUST THE RING. THE HOBBITS.

AND MY FAVOURITE PART ABOUT BOROMIR: 
When Aragorn rushes to him, the first thing Boromir sputters is “They took the little ones.” Not Frodo, who is bearing the ring. The ring was not his concern, and he knew Frodo was alright. It was Merry and Pippin. He was scared for them. Those words were his main concern. He needed Aragorn to know that the hobbits were in trouble. 

SO YOU CAN TAKE YOUR OPINION OF BOROMIR AND YOU CAN BURN IT. GOOD DAY. 

No, Harry!" Hermione gasped in a petrified whisper; Ron, however, spoke to Black.
  ”If you want to kill Harry, you’ll have to kill us too!” he said fiercely, though the effort of standing upright was draining him of still more color, and he swayed slightly as he spoke.
  Something flickered in Black’s shadowed eyes.
  ”Lie down,” he said quietly to Ron. “You will damage that leg even more.”
  ”Did you hear me?” Ron said weakly, though he was clinging painfully to Harry to stay upright. “You’ll have to kill all three of us!
