I’m REALLY sorry but it looks like they’re about to rap battle
Instead of trying to perfect your writing, then, strive to get acquainted with this pattern and become more and more proficient at expressing it. There is no endpoint in this process, and we will never arrive at “perfect.” So why not give up the chase right now, and just enjoy the resonance and beauty of our humble, flawed writing as it is?

What could be strong enough to leave claw marks in solid stone?
Let me tell you a fucking thing about costume design. That’s some in depth, difficult shit to learn. And the fact that this goddess can ramble this shit off the cuff means she knows her shit. ELLE WOODS IS A GODAMNED GENIUS AND IT’s NOT A STRETCH TO BELIEVE SHE GOT INTO HARVARD LAW MMMK?
this movie is literally about an attractive woman who loves to party having to prove over and over again that she’s also intelligent and hard-working to those who judge her based on her looks (who also empowers and fights for other women, and fosters unlikely friendships instead of engaging in girl hate) and if you don’t think that’s some great feminist shit then I don’t know what your problem is
Let’s not forget that in the end when the guy wants her again, she turns him down because she knows she deserves better.
AND let’s not forget that at the end she is the class-elected speaker at the graduation ceremony, has graduated with high honors, has been invited into one of Boston’s best law firms, and is best friends with the girl who her boyfriend left her for.
And so it begins..
So I was talking to one of my younger sisters about this last night. We both knew this scene was coming, but the wording of “Orc mutant” had surprised me. You don’t really hear the word mutant thrown around in high fantasy very often! But my sis is the LoTR master (a step below Stephen Colbert), and she reminded me that Orcs are mutants. They’re elves that have been mutilated and warped into an entirely different species. So Legolas is saying that Gimli is an Orc TWICE OVER. Vicious.
But man, this just gets me even more hyped thinkin’ about their friendship in LoTR. I think it’s one of the most important plots going on in the series, and it perfectly fits into the overall theme of small acts of kindness and love being more powerful than hatred.
I mean, we go from this
Their friendship undoes centuries and generations worth of built-up hatred and mistrust between their races. Hatred that was passed on from their fathers and forefathers. And after the War of the Ring? They went back and rebuilt their kingdoms together, and Legolas invited Gimli to cross the sea into the Undying Lands.
It may not be the most important story going on in this series, but it’s my personal favorite.
Not to mention he totally wasn’t allowed to do that. Legolas. But he did anyway.
