Words taken from Neil Gaiman’s The Graveyard Book - one of my absolute favourites. I had the poem inscribed on a set of four rings.neil-gaiman
This is gorgeous. Also, I’ve been curious about something for a long time: where is that poem/song originally from? I know it appears in Ulysses but Joyce didn’t write it either…
When I was writing The Graveyard Book, I found it listed as a nursery rhyme in a book on English funeral customs through the ages. (Which one? I don’t know. I had a lot of funeral/graveyard books.) It may have originated with The Pauper’s Drive by Thomas Noel, although the way that Noel quotes it in the poem, it may well be that his refrain was borrowed from something already current. Many people, from Joyce to Morrissey, have used it, or bits of it.
30 Rock + TV Tropes
↳ ’That Makes Me Feel Angry’ with Grizz:
A classic rule in textwriting is to “show, don’t tell”. That includes emotions. If a character is happy, that should be obvious from his actions/expressions. However, this certain trope plays with that rule, and has characters show the emotions they’re feeling by stating them, rather than expressing them in a normal fashion.
I hope you’re happy in the end

I am now convinced that no modern AU Thorin is complete without an embarrassing 80s punk phase that he vehemently denies ever existed and you’ll never know for certain will you because all the photos were burned
until Fili and Kili unearth an old photo album at Dwalin’s and see the two of them, complete with Dwalin’s mohawk and Thorin’s guyliner and leather trousers, lounging against a wall like they’re the coolest 16 year olds in school
