DoS countdown: 2 days!
style icons / rereading the chronicles of narnia series
A once beautiful forest, its pathways were lit by the sun and swept by soft winds. But a sickness has fallen upon the Greenwood and it has become a wild, dark place into which the sun rarely shines. The trees in Mirkwood have become gnarled and tangled, their branches twisted and weighed down by trailing ivy and lichen. The roots of the forest trees sprawl and crawl across the forest floor, always ready to catch an unwary foot, and among them blind, pale creatures slither silently. The deep green gloom is broken only by the fall of faint white spores. All manner of poisonous fungi sprout amongst the fallen deadwood, and unknown herbs with a rank, unpleasant smell grow here now.

↳ It’s like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo. The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger, they were. And sometimes you didn’t want to know the end, because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened? But in the end, it’s only a passing thing, this shadow. Even darkness must pass. A new day will come. And when the sun shines, it’ll shine out the clearer. Those were the stories that stayed with you, that meant something, even if you were too small to understand why. But I think, Mr. Frodo, I do understand. I know now. Folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back, only they didn’t. They kept going. Because they were holding onto something. -What are we holding onto, Sam?- That there’s some good in this world, Mr. Frodo. And it’s worth fighting for.
