The “Ri” Brothers
my pictures and signatures of Mark Hadlow, Adam Brown and Jed Brophy.
In the picture with mark is still susu—chan with it.
i´m so happy (especially the picture with Jed, it’s my favorite. He has lifted me really high *3*)
Get rid of your boundaries and the universe is yours.
i know i reblog this a lot but fuckin look at it
and this, my friend, is why you sit in the second row right next to the entrance during a convention, even though it means you only take shitty photos
the story behind these two pics? well, on Saturday, everything was still very new and Sparkle and I kinda ignored the very first panel (it was somebody talking about the finale of the Hobbit, in German), and only sat down when the panel with Mark and Stephen started. I was taking pictures and listening, but at some point, Sparkle nudged me and pointed at a little piece of paper where she had written some names down
it was “Adam & Dean”, with a little arrow pointing to the front
only then I realised that they had seated themselves RIGHT IN THE FUCKING FRONT OF US, and I didn’t notice at all. they were quietly talking to each other, laughing about the funny things Stephen and Mark told, and then Jed joined them. I don’t know if you can see it in the picture, but he was wearing a really awesome vest, made up of hundreds of Hobbit screencaps from both movies
and then, Dean got out his phone and showed them some pics, looking at his facebook, and then he called up a picture, handing it over to Adam
yeah, it was a Dwalin/Ori fanart of them kissing
may I repeat: Dean O’Gorman has FanArt of Adam Brown and Graham McTavish as Ori and Dwalin on his phone, and just shows it around like some pictures of his dog or something (also, if I anyone might link me to a compilation of Dwalin/Ori fanarts of them kissing, with just their faces being shown in the picture, I’m pretty sure I’ll recognise it. It wasn’t from any FanArtist I know, though!)
*takes a deep breath* so, it’s basically no big surprise that I don’t remember much of that panel. there was also that awlward moment when Dean leaned back, stretching his arms, and I leaned forward to search something in my bag, and my hair kinda touched his hair
his hair smelled nice, yes
then there was also the moment when some girl dressed as Fíli got Dean’s attention somehow and was then photographed by him; I honestly believe that he has some kind of collection of Fíli cosplayers on his phone
in the end, I was contemplating just tapping Jed on the shoulder and telling him how awesome I think his vest looks, but I was very nervous and my heart was doing somersaults in my chest. when the panel was over, of course basically all the girls swarmed around them, and I was like “nope, not today”
and after that, I broke down and had to calm myself because I didn’t expect somethign so awesome to happen to us in the first two hours of this convention
I also found out that I freeze up in shock when unexpected things like that happen and think I just sat frozen to try and not do anything to pull attention to my presence? I didn’t expect that they’d just casually walk around the Con really, it was my first so I didn’t know what to expect at all
this is also a story that I loved
Adam and Dean told us about an awkward moment when they met, the typical situation where you meet a new person and you’re not sure how to shake hands or whether to embrace each other. And they both went for the hug, but both of them turned the same way and sort of ended up like that. Adam then said that they didn’t mention it for three months but kind of felt bad because ‘woa, I have to work with him for the next two years’
You made all the males attractive when I thought there was no hope for them. You, my good artist, are a miracle-worker.
A man in the grocery store line today approached me and said, “Sir, when I first saw you I was extremely attracted to you, but then I noticed that you are a boy. How… I mean, why do you dress so provocatively?”
I responded, “Well, in today’s world the majority of the straight male race view women as objects, or something that belongs to them. I dress provocatively because it attracts the attention of men in a sexual and OBJECTIVE way. However, when realized that I am actually male, they often become confused, disgusted, upset or all of the above. By inflicting this minor emotional damaged upon the ego of a man raised by twisted societal gender norms, maybe, just maybe the individual will think twice before viewing another woman with an objective attitude and sense of belonging. No woman, belongs to ANYONE. Male or female, the equality of human beings needs to be a priority. It is something worth dressing up for.”
I AM NOT KIDDING. The woman behind me, the female cashier, the old lady bagging groceries and the woman in front of me who was talking on the phone STOPPED, …. and proceeded to gasp and clap. The man shook my hand, told me to have a blessed day and then said, “excuse me ladies, I need to visit my daughter.”
…. I was shaking by the time I walked out of the store.
