The recent rise in popularity of dragons is funny because half of it is because of Game of Thrones and half of it is because of How To Train Your Dragon so all these dragon posts are going around and you never know which fandom you’re gonna brush shoulders with it’s like walking into a dragon’s lair and not knowing if you’re gonna get this

Eeyore is just one of those characters that you wanna scoop up and hug forever.

One awesome thing about Eeyore is that even though he is basically clinically depressed, he still gets invited to participate in adventures and shenanigans with all of his friends. And they never expect him to pretend to feel happy, they just love him anyway, and they never leave him behind or ask him to change.

Oh

oh

And he does feel happy, though. He can be happy. He just doesn’t show it as much as the others do.
There was a whole episode about that - Piglet sees him sitting on a hilltop and thinks he’s sadder than usual, and does all he can to cheer him up. Nothing works and the next day he’s back on the hill, and Piglet apologizes because he thinks in trying to help, he just made him sad again and ”I don’t come here when I’m sad. I come up here because I’m happy.”

There’s just something about that…

OKAY HERE WE GO. 
First of all, Boromir did not want power. Yes, he wanted the ring. But so did like… half of Middle Earth. Because that is the very essence of the ring - One Ring to Rule Them All. It has almost a life about it, and a kind of draw that brings people in. Many people believe that it only has a draw of power, but that is not so. In many cases, the desire of the ring does not come from power at all; it comes from a desire of hope and change. 

In Boromir’s case, he did not want power. He wanted to help his people. His life completely revolved around making his father happy and bringing pride to Gondor. It was a falling city, scrambling to keep its fingernails on the edge of failure. He saw the ring as an opportunity to bring his kingdom back to what it used to be. Not as an opportunity to rule over others. The ring is very misleading in this case. People are drawn to it for a variety of reasons. His reasoning for wanting the ring was noble and just. 

SECONDLY. BOROMIR IS A MAN OF VALIANCE AND COURAGE AND COMPASSION. This is shown ALL through the novels and the film adaptation. And assuming you have only seen the movies, based on your absolutely ridiculous assessment of this character, I’m going to use the movies to demonstrate why he’s not as evil as you seem to think. 1) HE IS VERY CONCERNED ABOUT THE HOBBITS. He’s the one that suggests they get to better terrain to make sure the hobbits don’t freeze. And not just Frodo so the ring stays in tact, but all of them. In fact at one point he’s holding Merry and Pippin close to him to keep them warm. OPENING YOUR ARMS TO SOMEONE IS AN EXTREME SHOW OF GOOD WILL. 2) He made a mistake. And when Frodo finally escapes his rage-blinded gaze, Boromir falls onto the ground and sorrowfully mutters “What have I done.” showing that this is not who he usually is; that he’s done something that his character would not usually allow. 3) He fights to his DEATH to PROTECT the hobbits. NOT JUST THE RING. THE HOBBITS.

AND MY FAVOURITE PART ABOUT BOROMIR: 
When Aragorn rushes to him, the first thing Boromir sputters is “They took the little ones.” Not Frodo, who is bearing the ring. The ring was not his concern, and he knew Frodo was alright. It was Merry and Pippin. He was scared for them. Those words were his main concern. He needed Aragorn to know that the hobbits were in trouble. 

SO YOU CAN TAKE YOUR OPINION OF BOROMIR AND YOU CAN BURN IT. GOOD DAY.

Koko the gorilla, is a female gorilla who is able to understand more than 1000 signs on the the American Sign Language system and over 2000 words of spoken English. 

Koko had a pet kitten, which she received on her birthday on July 1984. It was noted that Koko cared for that kitten as if it were a little baby gorilla. The kitten one day escaped from Koko’s cage and was hit by a car.

When she was told of what happened, this is how she responded.

It was also noted that afterwards she made weeping sounds like a human.
