OH MY FUCKING GOD
Ron always just fucking knows
If you remember, Ron was always weirdly good with Divination. Whenever he’d joke about a possible outcome, it would eventually happen in some roundabout way!
There’s actually a whole point about this in these Harry Potter analysis books I used to read obsessively. Two of their cardinal rules of HP foreshadowing are “Hermione is always right, except when she’s emotional” and “Ron is always wrong, except when he’s joking”. This actually plays out pretty frequently in the series if you look for it!
Prophet Ron is my favorite headcanon
Whether you’re new or old to the world of Tolkien, there’s definitely a lot to take in and it can get very confusing. Here are some links to resources that will help you understand the complicated world of Tolkien.
Here is a link to a post of all of Tolkien’s books
Here is a link to letters that Tolkien wrote, many of which explaining and specifying different parts of his stories.
Reading the Silmarillion? How about the perfect companion to help you get through that dense novel?
Here is a family tree of every known character in Tolkien’s universe. This website also has multiple stats, an invaluable map complete with a timeline, and another incredibly detailed map where you can see paths traveled and events. Basically this entire website is gold.
Here is online Tolkien and Tolkien-related courses taught by some of the leading Tolkien scholars
If there’s anything I missed, please add it on to this post!
Pippinforthewin, a fellow member of Team Gondolin, made this awesome reference post for reading Tolkien material. It has lots of helpful links that you should check out.
Today’s the day that the nearly 500 of you that signed up for teams have been waiting for - pre-registration is over, which means it’s time to assign you all to your teams! If you messaged me to join a team, except a reply from me sometime today letting you know what team you’re on.
If you’d still like to join a team, that’s completely possible - even after the read-along starts, I’ll still be accepting new team members. The only difference is, from this day forward, you’ll be assigned a team randomly, in order to keep the teams at equal sizes.
Also, if you don’t want to join a team, that’s totally fine as well. You’ll still be able to take part in all the read-along activities! And on that note, it’s only a few more days until the read-along begins - I hope you’re all ready, and excited, because I am!! :D
From what I gather, the people who USED to be a part of DashCon are far more unified than the people who are STILL running DashCon.
the internet summed up in one gif set
DashCon 2014 was a ton of fun and super great (◡‿◡✿)
