2nd of September 1973, J. R. R. Tolkien, author of The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, and The Silmarillion, died at the age of 81.
His wife, Edith Tolkien died two years earlier and Tolkien had the name Lúthien engraved on her tombstone at Wolvercote Cemetery, Oxford. When Tolkien died 21 months later he was buried in the same grave, with Beren added to his name. The engravings read:Edith Mary Tolkien
In Tolkien’s Middle-earth legendarium, Lúthien was the most beautiful of all the Children of Ilúvatar, and forsook her immortality for her love of the mortal warrior Beren. After Beren was captured by the forces of the Dark Lord Morgoth, Lúthien rode to his rescue upon the talking wolfhound Huan. Ultimately, when Beren was slain in battle against the demonic wolf Carcharoth, Lúthien, like Orpheus, approached the Valar, the angelic order of beings placed in charge of the world by Eru (God), and persuaded them to restore her beloved to life.
tell me a secret
One time during class my drama/english teacher, who’s a devout vegan and all about not killing animals, accidentally stepped on a ladybug. He froze up and slowly cradles it in his hand and he was so heartbroken and started quoting Hamlet.
I didn’t have the heart to tell him that it was a red m&m.
I can’t breathe

!!JoAnns Fabric and Craft Coupon Guide!!
**This method works best with a smart phone!**
So you wanna make cosplay and eat food too huh? Well tough luck kid cosplay is EXPENSIVE so- Oh wait you’re buying from Jo-Anns*? Well then you just might get that tulle AND those tacos.
Listen up, there are four main steps to saving money!!
2. JoAnn’s Coupons
3. Competitor Coupons
Which forms the clever acronym SJCO! Wait that’s not really anything but ANYWAYS…
JoAnns frequently puts items, especially fabrics on sale! You can check your paper mailer or the website to find out in advance what will be on sale! Holidays are an especially prime time for sales (Easter, Mother’s Day, Halloween, they do sales for everything!) Sometimes it’s worth waiting a week or two until a big sale hits. (But be prepared for a crowded store!)
A word of caution on sale items, you CANNOT use a percent off item coupon on them! An item can only be discounted once!
2. JoAnn’s Coupons
THIS, is where you can save the big $$$ with a bit of legwork!
JoAnns releases coupons on four main platforms:
-Smartphone App (iphone and android, titled Jo-Ann)
Pick the one easiest for you right? WRONG. You can use coupons from ALL FOUR AT THE SAME TIME. As long as your coupons have different serial codes you’re good to go! SO SIGN UP FOR THEM ALL ASAP! Also don’t forget to fill in your birthday month (or whatever month you want a 20% off total purchase coupon!)
Phone (text) coupons are also an option, but they’re infrequent and I’ve never gotten much use out of them personally. Also sometimes there are flyers for future sales laying around in store, grab them when you can!
!!Also in store you can sign up for a student discount card with a valid student id that is good for 10% off total purchase, which is reusable!!
3. Competitor Coupons
JoAnns accepts (percent off item) coupons from Hanncock Fabrics, Hobby Lobby, and Michaels. These can easily be found on their websites, and additionally you can sign up for their email programs/apps! The same policy on differing barcodes applies (I believe HobLob only puts out one code at a time).
So you’ve got a LOT of coupons by now! And most of them aren’t even paper. Do you know what will make you cashier furious, and less likely to work with you?*** Trying to find and load them all at the register while a line grows behind you.
Avoid this by screen capping everything with your handy dandy smart phone the night before! The cashier just needs to be able to see and scan the coupon off your phone, it doesn’t actually have to be in the app/site/email.
Now you’re going to go one step further and sort your coupons! Sort by:
Type! Some coupons are for fabric or craft only, these go first
Amount! You want to use the biggest amounts first (typically 50% off)
Source! JoAnns coupons should always be used before competitor’s.
Kind! Use your item coupons before percent off total! ONLY ONE PERCENT OFF TOTAL COUPON CAN BE USED. If you don’t have one don’t forget about your student discount card!
Congrats you’re now an extreme (craft) couponer! And believe me the savings can be extreme!
57% savings! (Regular price total would have been $197.26)
*I encourage you to try and coupon and save w/ anything you buy for cosplay, but this guide was written for Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores specifically.
**You may consider making a separate email for coupons, JoAnns sends emails ever other day, and you can also use the same email to sign up for coupons from Hobby Lobby, Hanncock, and Michaels!
***Remember you are asking your cashier to do a lot more work and take a lot more time on your transaction! Please be kind and polite to them, it will make everything go smoother. <3
P.S. Some stores may have their own policies (my methods should work at most!), never hesitate to ask a manager about what you can and can’t do!
P. P. S. I am not a JoAnns employee, just a cosplayer w/ limited funds!

On Monday, Anita Sarkeesian posted a segment titled “Women as Background Decoration.” It examined how gratuitous sexual abuse and violence permeates contemporary video games. By the next day, she had received so many violent threats that she had to flee her home. And these weren’t idle Internet threats — some contained accurate identifying information about Sarkeesian’s home and family, enough for law enforcement to get involved.

Petition to ban old men from writing books just because they don’t know how to use an iPhone
Petition to have the youth in this country to actually educate themselves instead of spitting out some bullshit they read on some shitty post on facebook that’s untrue, and continues to spread like wildfire.
In 2012, young adults set the record of completing both high school and college and are on course to become the most educated generation in American history. Maybe you should follow the example of ‘the youth in this country’ and do the same.
