Still my favorite story from the Lord of the Rings set: Viggo Mortensen bonded so much with the horse he rode in the movies that after filming was over he bought it from its owner. If that doesn’t warm your heart I don’t know what could.
don’t forget that he also bought arwen’s horse for her stunt rider when she couldn’t afford it awww
#also don’t forget that for the rohirrim they put a call out for locals #bring a horse show us you can ride it and get a part in the battle scenes #and one women went out roped a wild horse and rode for a few days to set #and got to be a rider of rohan
also sort of relevant viggo also bought the horse that costarred with him in the movie hidalgo and subsequently took the horse (tj) with him to the red carpet premier.
Also most of the Riders of Rohan are actually women because when they put out that call mostly women showed up with their horses and the costume team just stuck beards on them.

Tony’s armor absorbs lightning because of Vanko’s attack on him in Iron Man 2. It isn’t the whip, exactly, that is doing the damage - it is the energy running in them. It hits the armor and it overloads the system, causes damage. So, of course, Tony does what Tony does and he makes sure it isn’t ever going to be a problem again. He builds in something like a Faraday cage which allows him to absorb that sort of thing in the future. Thus, he’s able to absorb Thor’s lightning.
Or so it seems to me.

Kosh + sass
I was talking to my brother about women’s attitudes towards their bodies, especially regarding weight/fat, and when he said “most guys don’t notice/care about that kind of thing,” I tried to explain why it was a lot more complicated than that. I ended up telling this story.
Body image is something that’s so hard to talk about, and it’s hard to express body positivity without sounding cheesy, false, or overly simplistic. But I’m gonna try. This is only my own experience, and it didn’t magically cure me of all my body image issues - but it was a major turning point for me nonetheless.
Love, love, love, love, love this.
Yeah. That doesn’t surprise me at all.
