Putting dampeners on drums to keep the sound down.
When you hit the drum with the same force as before the dampening was introduced, a quieter sound is emitted.
When I experience a shock to the system, I feel like my mind has been dampened. Like, I don’t know, everything I feel is WAY less instense. It comes across as ‘I’m bored with everything’.
Currently I’m at the same mindset when I’m running, talking with friends, talking with parents, talking with teachers, working, eating, playing chess, playing LoL, watching TV, sitting in the kitchen looking at the garden for 40 freaking minutes. My emotional range is just, nothing, at the minute.
Let’s be honest, I am a robot. #youwillbedeleted (I know cyber men aren’t robots but they are the first things that came to mind).
Just, mechanically walking around doing what I should be.
Today in Middle-Earth: Denethor sends Faramir to Osgiliath (March 11th, 3019 T.A.).
’I do not oppose your will, sire. Since you are robbed of Boromir, I will go and do what I can in his stead – if you command it.’
’I do so,’ said Denethor.
’Then farewell!’ said Faramir. ‘But if I should return, think better of me!’
’That depends on the manner of your return,’ said Denethor.
Gandalf it was that last spoke to Faramir ere he rode east. ‘Do not throw your live away rashly or in bitterness,’ he said. ‘You will be needed here, for other things than war. Your father loves you, Faramir, and will remember it ere the end. Farewell!’
fuck you denethor

My problem isn’t that my favorite characters aren’t real,
it’s that I’m not fictional.
I don’t want them to be real. What I desperately wish is that I could be fictional with them. It’s not that I want them here with me, in this mundane and ordinary world. It’s that I want to join them,
In their extraordinary one.
