still upset that the films never acknowledge that Peeta loses a limb in the first arena and goes through the Quarter Quell with a prosthetic leg
or that Katniss has suffered permanent hearing loss in one of her ears and now requires a hearing aid
or, you know, the Avoxes
Do you ever wonder about Balthazar’s vessel? Like, what if he was a button-down, conservative Christian guy who was so honoured to be chosen by an angel. And then the first night Balthazar has him as his vessel he gets drunk & has a huge fucking orgy.

Evangeline Lilly, Desolation of Smaug world premiere press conference
Whether you like Tauriel or not, I think Evangeline makes a great point about adapting Tolkien’s works to our age and how vital it is to incorporate a feminine perspective in fantasy worlds when previously that was not emphasized at all. Even still female representation in fantasy is lacking, and I think it’s great that Evangeline clearly observes the need for characters like Tauriel to round out these narratives and demonstrate that women do have a place in the fantasy genre.
I don’t understand…we reblog all the pro-female things and yet when we get a good strong woman in our movie she gets hate. Either we support women or we do not.
