HARRY POTTER FANS WATCH THIS
HOLY SHIT IT IS VERY VERY VERY VERY COOL
Oh my gosh this is legit one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen in my life! This is SO COOL, seriously just click on it, oh my gosh.
This is how I imagined wizard duels I actually like this better than the duels in the movie because there are spells that actually do things other than make stuff explode.If I didn’t know better I would have thought that this was professionally made, WOW. <3
THIS IS SO FUCKING COOL EVERYONE WATCH THIS NOW
The acting is a little “eh” in places but the visual effects? Hot damn.
Dori being polite towards Gandalf
Two mugs for tea, two cups of wine, AND YET STILL THE BLASTED WIZARD CAN’T TAKE A DAMN HINT. What is Dori meant to do? Start unbraiding his beard in plain sight? Might as well go traipsing naked through an avalanche if that’s what it will take to land the old fool.
Among most dwarves of status, this sort of overt flirtation, especially with a non-dwarf, is considered highly salacious. It would be cause for scandal if Dori weren’t already known to be from a family rather fallen from grace. It’s all a bit desperate really, and at least Oin’s eyebrows are raised, even if no one else in the company much holds with stuffy old traditions. A slow enduring courtship might ensure a slow enduring love, but Dori’s had quite enough slow enduring heartbreaks for one life-time—he simply doesn’t have the time to waste anymore on subtleties!

18 Various Kinds of Opals
When most people think of an opal, they might think of a milky-colored stone containing a rainbow of stripes or flecks inside it. What many people don’t know is that they are incredibly diverse in appearance, and are not actually minerals. Opals are a solid, amorphous form of silica, and are classified as “mineraloids”. Like other mineraloids, such as amber, pearl, and obsidian, they lack structural order, or “crystallinity”.
From the top:
- Black Opals
- Cat’s Eye Opals
- Dendritic Opals
- Flamingo Opals
- Peruvian Pink Opals
- Zebra Opals
- Leopard Opals
- Yowah Nut and Koroit Opals (both have the same characteristics - they merely come from two different areas).
- Brown Opals
- Ethiopian Honeycomb Opals
- Green Opals (Serbian, Tanzanian, and Brazilian)
- Peruvian Blue Opals
- Matrix Opals
- Landscape Opals (Andean and Australian)
- Mexican Fire Opals
- Crystal Opals
- Australian Boulder Opals
- Ethiopian Ribbon Opals
(Side note - the image backgrounds are transparent, except for the matrix/landscape picture, which seems hellbent on being an asshat, no matter how many times I try to fix it)
