Wedding rings! The elvish engraving says:
“One ring to show our love, one ring to bind us, one ring to seal our love and forever entwine us.”

He built a box, and she painted our last initial and their wedding date on it. They put in two unread love letters to each other about why they fell in love, a nice bottle of wine from the year they started dating, and nailed the lid on the box. They promised that if things ever get too hard and their love starts to fade, they will open the box, drink the wine, and read the letters they wrote to each other, reminding them of how much their love means and to never give up.
omfg this is lovely, i wanna do it :(

This is freaking me out.
Washington, DC Metro Station on a cold January morning in 2007. The man with a violin played six Bach pieces for about 45 minutes. During that time approximately. 2 thousand people went through the station, most of them on their way to work.
4 minutes later:
The violinist received his first dollar: a woman threw the money in the hat and, without stopping, continued to walk.
A young man leaned against the wall to listen to him, then looked at his watch and started to walk again.
A 3-year old boy stopped but his mother tugged him along hurriedly. The kid stopped to look at the violinist again, but the mother pushed hard and the child continued to walk, turning his head all the time. This action was repeated by several other children. Every parent, without exception, forced their children to move on quickly.
The musician played continuously. Only 6 people stopped and listened for a short while. About 20 gave money but continued to walk at their normal pace. The man collected a total of $32.
He finished playing and silence took over. No one noticed. No one applauded, nor was there any recognition.
No one knew this, but the violinist was Joshua Bell, one of the greatest musicians in the world. He played one of the most intricate pieces ever written, with a violin worth $3.5 million dollars. Two days before Joshua Bell sold out a theater in Boston where the seats averaged $100.
This is a true story. Joshua Bell playing incognito in the metro station was organized by the Washington Post as part of a social experiment about perception, taste and people’s priorities.
*In a common place environment at an inappropriate hour, do we perceive beauty?
*Do we stop to appreciate it?
The questions raised:
*Do we recognize talent in an unexpected context?
One possible conclusion reached from this experiment could be this:
If we do not have a moment to stop and listen to one of the best musicians in the world, playing some of the finest music ever written, with one of the most beautiful instruments ever made…
How many other things are we missing?

-A Bad Case of Stripes, by David Shannon
I heard that the reason they made her put her hands like that was a Timelord form of disgrace. And that she was stuck in that limbo forever, until her and the other disgraced Timelords became the first weeping angels. Monsters forced into feeding of time energy, as it used to run through their veins now their veins were stone they needed to get it other ways.
I don’t even care if that’s the real reason or not because it’s awesomehorrifying.
And in the fourth gif you see her nodding because even she knows who her son is. She raised that boy who has changed so many times, raised him from birth and knew who he was. She knew what his choice would be and approved, even if inevitably it would be her death. You see his eyes widen in the sixth gif because he realizes that to end everything, he will be doing it not just to the timelords but to the face of his mother. It will be her that he is sending back and oh, it hurts him. The grief and the pain… and his mothers acceptance of it. You can see the tear in her yes even as she knows her son will do what’s right.
