That moment you realize you are Edmund
he almost gets them killed because he wants sweets
we’re still Edmund
I have absolutely no problem being an Edmund. Here’s why:
Things Edmund Pevensie does besides be a sass master and sell his family out to the White Witch:
- He helps fight against the White Witch after Aslan forgives him (and is genuinely repentant about what he’s done when he was working with her!)
- He’s a kick-ass king of Narnia; C.S. Lewis’s description of him is thus: “He was a graver and quieter man than Peter, and great in council and judgment.”
- In A Horse and His Boy he leads the Narnian forces against Rabadash, who is coming to kidnap Susan (because she doesn’t want to marry that dick) along with Lucy
- In Prince Caspian, he’s the only one who believes that Lucy sees Aslan in the forest, and suggests that they follow her direction, since she got them to Narnia in the first place
- ALL OF VOYAGE OF THE DAWN TREADER
So yes, Edmund does sell out the Pevensies to the White Witch. But I would say that he does make up for it a bit.

and, let’s be fair, turkish delight is awesome, and they were rationing everything. Seems legit to me.
YES! It’s not like he was used to eating sweets whenever he wanted to, it was wartime and the allure of sweets is pretty strong for a kid. And that’s not even going into all the metaphors surrounding that scene.
Edmund and Jill are actually my favourite children characters in the Narnia series. They have personality and real reasons behind doing what they do, whether it is a good thing or a bad thing. I just find them so much more interesting!
Can someone from the sciencey side of tumblr please explain this ?
This is called shape memory. It’s made from an alloy of titanium and nickel (I believe it’s called nitinol). It has the ability to “remember” the shape it’s taken.
When cold you can bend it whatever which way, but once you heat it (or in this case put it in what I presume is hot water) it will take the original shape.
My sister and I are Lord of the Rings enthusiasts and avid jewelry designers. We came up with the idea to handcraft polymer clay Lord of the Rings jewelry together. Our aim is to share our passion with others, and to give girls the opportunity to display their love for Tolkien while feeling beautiful. Our shop just recently opened. So excited about it!

Jiji Needlefelt - approx 12 hours
A friend of mine is making Kiki from Kiki’s Delivery Service for Anime North. She mentioned making herself a Jiji and I offered to needlefelt one for her. This is the result!
He stands about 10 inches tall including his ears, and has a wired core so he can slouch and tilt his head left and right. I added magnets to his feet so that he can sit on her shoulder when she wears a thin metal plate under her costume. I think I want to try more shoulder perching crafts, this one was a lot of fun. Harry Potter Owls anyone?
You can see video of the shoulder perching/magnets at work here.

I’m a part of Lost Generation
and I refuse to believe that
I can change the world
I realize this may be a shock but
“Happiness comes from within”
is a lie, and
“Money will make me happy”
So in thirty years I’ll tell my children
They are not the most important thing in my life
My employer will know that
I have my priority straight because
Is more important than
I tell you this
Once upon a time
Families stay together
But this will not be true in my era
This is a quick fix society
Experts tell me
Thirty years from now I will be celebrating the 10th anniversary of my divorce
I do not concede that
I will live in a country of my own making
In the future
Environmental destruction will be the norm
No longer can it be said that
My peers and I care about this earth
It will be evident that
My generation is apathetic and lethargic
It is foolish to presume that
There is hope
And all of this will come true unless we reverse it.
From “Elizabeth Smart: Abstinence Education Teaches Rape Victims They’re Worthless, Dirty, And Filthy,” by Tara Culp-Ressler on Think Progress.
“Now in her mid-twenties, Smart runs a foundation to help educate children about sexual crimes. She now believes that children should grow up learning that ‘you will always have value and nothing can change that.’”
