They’re all goofy when they’re not pillaging and murdering each other. So cute.
" ‘Eowyn, Eowyn!’ he cried at last. ‘Eowyn, how come you here? What madness or devilry is this? Death, death, death! Death take us all!’ Then without council of the men of the City, he spurred headlong back to front of the great host, and blew a horn, and cried aloud for the onset. Over the field rang his clear voice calling: ‘Death! Ride, ride for ruin and the world’s ending!’ And with that the host began to move. But the Rohirrim sang no more. Death they cried with one voice loud and terrible, and gathering speed like a great tide their battle swept about their fallen king and passed, roaring away southwards." ~ Quotes from the book
Beowulf sails for Heorot Hall. (Roger Raupp from “Three cheers for Beowulf, Different portraits of the legendary hero”, Dragon magazine No. 85, May 1984.)
“Drogon,” she sang out loudly, sweetly, all her fear forgotten. “Dracarys.” The black dragon spread his wings and roared. A lance of swirling dark flame took Kraznys full in the face. His eyes melted and ran down his cheeks, and the oil in his hair and beard burst so fiercely into fire that for an instant the slaver wore a burning crown twice as tall as his head. The sudden stench of charred meat overwhelmed even his perfume, and his wail seemed to drown all other sound.

OMG OKAY THIS IS GOLD. The pallas cat at my local zoo apparently does this, and there’s a little sort of kid-level viewing window into its habitat, and the keeper in that area told me that the pallas cat likes to hide beneath the window. So when the kids press their faces up to the glass, searching the exhibit for the animal, the pallas cat suddenly pops up directly in front of their faces and scares the ever-loving shit out of them. Pallas cat: recreationally scares children. Tell your friends.
I AM FREAKING CRYIN’

ICARUS (NO NOT THAT ICARUS) IS FRIENDS WITH A BUNCH OF SHEPHERDS, AND THEY ALL SPEND THEIR TIME DICKING AROUND IN THE SUN POINTLESSLY. ONE DAY, DIONYSUS COMES TO VISIT ICARUS AND GIVES HIM A BOTTLE OF WINE. UP TO THIS POINT, NOBODY HAS A FUCKING CLUE WHAT WINE IS. THEY’VE NEVER SEEN IT BEFORE.
ICARUS SHARES HIS BOTTLE OF WINE WITH HIS FUCKING SHEPHERD FRIENDS, AND THEY ALL GET COMPLETELY FUCKING WASTED. ICARUS LEAVES FOR A MINUTE TO GO FOR A SHIT, AND AT THAT POINT ONE OF HIS OTHER FRIENDS COMES OVER TO FIND A BUNCH OF FUCKING SHEPHERDS LYING ON THE FLOOR LOOKING REALLY FUCKING CONFUSED AND OCCASIONALLY THROWING UP. ASSUMING THAT ICARUS HAS FUCKING POISONED ALL THE SHEPHERDS, HE GETS AND ANGRY MOB TOGETHER AND WAITS FOR ICARUS TO COME BACK. AS SOON AS ICARUS COMES HOME, THE ANGRY MOB MURDER THE SHIT OUT OF HIM, CUT HIM INTO FUCKING TINY PIECES, AND THROW THE PIECES INTO THE MOTHERFUCKING WELL.
SOME TIME LATER, ICARUS’ DOG MAERA COMES TO VISIT HIS DAUGHTER ERIGONE AND BARKS AT HER. IN TRUE LASSIE-STYLE, ERIGONE WORKS OUT THAT MAERA WANTS TO TELL HER THAT ICARUS HAS FALLEN DOWN THE WELL. SHE DOESN’T WORK OUT THAT HE’S BEEN MANGLED INTO TINY FUCKING PIECES THOUGH, SO WHEN SHE GETS TO THE WELL SHE GETS A PRETTY FUCKING HUGE SURPRISE.
TRAUMATISED BY THE SIGHT OF HER DAD LYING AT THE BOTTOM OF THE WELL IN A HEAP OF BLOODY FUCKING MEAT LUMPS, ERIGONE HANGS HERSELF FROM THE NEAREST TREE. THEN MAERA THE DOG HURLS HERSELF DOWN THE WELL IN A DESPERATE BID FOR SUICIDE AND BREAKS HER NECK. NOW EVERYONE’S DEAD AND IT’S A FUCKING TRAGEDY.
