because wolves are presented in such a good and positive light in tolkienverse right? oh wait-
my bad finrod died fighting a dragon. and it was a dragon that bit off beren’s hand, then killed him. and it was of course the same dragon that went on a rampage across beleriand and killed huan. sauron’s servants were dragons, not wolves and he himself was wont to take the shape of a great dragon, certainly not a wolf. and of course sauron and morgoth’s armies went to battle riding dragons, most certainly not wargs. where did i even get such silly notions from? i must have read the wrong books. only dragons bad, wolves always good!
moving on of course what could have possibly made people think that daenerys and dragons are essential to win the battle for the dawn and the targaryens are the central piece to a prophecy about saving the world from the literal apocalypse? what in the world?! unbelievable! there is certainly nothing in the books that might suggest this! right?
Sam rolled onto his side, eyes wide as the Other shrank and puddled, dissolving away. In twenty heartbeats its flesh was gone, swirling away in a fine white mist. Beneath were bones like milkglass, pale and shiny, and they were melting too. Finally only the dragonglass dagger remained, wreathed in steam as if it were alive and sweating. Grenn bent to scoop it up and flung it down again at once. "Mother, that's cold." 
"Obsidian." Sam struggled to his knees. "Dragonglass, they call it. Dragonglass. Dragon glass." He giggled, and cried, and doubled over to heave his courage out onto the snow. - A Storm of Swords, Samwell I
-
"We knew all this. The question is, how do we fight them?"
"The armor of the Others is proof against most ordinary blades, if the tales can be believed, and their own swords are so cold they shatter steel. Fire will dismay them, though, and they are vulnerable to obsidian. I found one account of the Long Night that spoke of the last hero slaying Others with a blade of dragonsteel. Supposedly they could not stand against it." - A Dance with Dragons, Jon II
We will see, Jon thought, remembering the things that Sam had told him, the things he'd found in his old books. Longclaw had been forged in the fires of old Valyria, forged in dragonflame and set with spells. Dragonsteel, Sam called it. Stronger than any common steel, lighter, harder, sharper … But words in a book were one thing. The true test came in battle. -A Dance with Dragons, Jon XII
-
"No," the old man said. "It must be you. Tell them. The prophecy . . . my brother's dream . . . Lady Melisandre has misread the signs. Stannis . . . Stannis has some of the dragon blood in him, yes. His brothers did as well. Rhaelle, Egg's little girl, she was how they came by it . . . their father's mother . . . she used to call me Uncle Maester when she was a little girl. I remembered that, so I allowed myself to hope . . . perhaps I wanted to . . . we all deceive ourselves, when we want to believe. Melisandre most of all, I think. The sword is wrong, she has to know that . . . light without heat . . . an empty glamor . . . the sword is wrong, and the false light can only lead us deeper into darkness, Sam. Daenerys is our hope." -A Feast for Crows, Samwell IV
He asked Sam to read for him from a book by Septon Barth, whose writings had been burned during the reign of Baelor the Blessed. Once he woke up weeping. "The dragon must have three heads," he wailed, "but I am too old and frail to be one of them. I should be with her, showing her the way, but my body has betrayed me." -A Feast for Crows, Samwell IV
If indeed this first fortress is Valyrian, it suggests that the dragonlords came to Westeros thousands of years before they carved out their outpost on Dragonstone, long before the coming of the Andals, or even the First Men (…) Septon Barth's claim that the Valyrians came to Westeros because their priests prophesied that the Doom of Man would come out of the land beyond the narrow sea can safely be dismissed as nonsense, as can many of Barth's queerer beliefs and suppositions. -The World of Ice and Fire - The Reach: Oldtown
"I'm not stupid, ser." Egg lowered his voice. "Someday the dragons will return. My brother Daeron's dreamed of it, and King Aerys read it in a prophecy. Maybe it will be my egg that hatches. That would be splendid." -The Mystery Knight
Rhaegar took no interest in the play of other children. The maesters were awed by his wits, but his father's knights would jest sourly that Baelor the Blessed had been born again. Until one day Prince Rhaegar found something in his scrolls that changed him. No one knows what it might have been, only that the boy suddenly appeared early one morning in the yard as the knights were donning their steel. He walked up to Ser Willem Darry, the master-at-arms, and said, 'I will require sword and armor. It seems I must be a warrior.'" -A Storm of Swords, Daenerys I
"He has a song," the man replied. "He is the prince that was promised, and his is the song of ice and fire." He looked up when he said it and his eyes met Dany's, and it seemed as if he saw her standing there beyond the door. "There must be one more," he said, though whether he was speaking to her or the woman in the bed she could not say. "The dragon has three heads." -A Clash of Kings, Daenerys IV
Heraldic banners had long been a tradition amongst the lords of Westeros, but such had never been used by the dragonlords of old Valyria. When Aegon’s knights unfurled his great silken battle standard, with a red three- headed dragon breathing fire upon a black field, the lords took it for a sign that he was now truly one of them, a worthy high king for Westeros. -Fire and Blood - Aegon’s Conquest
“In some sense he (Aegon the Dragon) saw what was coming, three hundred years later, and wanted to unify the Seven Kingdoms to be better prepared for the threat that he eventually saw coming from the North. The threat that we are dealing with in A Song of Ice and Fire.” -GRRM (x)
-
And he looked past the Wall, past endless forests cloaked in snow, past the frozen shore and the great blue-white rivers of ice and the dead plains where nothing grew or lived. North and north and north he looked, to the curtain of light at the end of the world, and then beyond that curtain. He looked deep into the heart of winter, and then he cried out, afraid, and the heat of his tears burned on his cheeks. -A Game of Thrones, Bran III
Perched above her, the dragon spread his wings and tore at the terrible dark heart, ripping the rotten flesh to ribbons, and when his head snapped forward, fire flew from his open jaws, bright and hot. She could hear the shrieks of the Undying as they burned, their high thin papery voices crying out in tongues long dead. Their flesh was crumbling parchment, their bones dry wood soaked in tallow. They danced as the flames consumed them; they staggered and writhed and spun and raised blazing hands on high, their fingers bright as torches. -A Clash of Kings, Daenerys IV
-
"… don't want to wake the dragon …"
The red door was so far ahead of her, and she could feel the icy breath behind, sweeping up on her. If it caught her she would die a death that was more than death, howling forever alone in the darkness. She began to run. -A Game of Thrones, Daenerys IX
"… want to wake the dragon …"
Ghosts lined the hallway, dressed in the faded raiment of kings. In their hands were swords of pale fire. They had hair of silver and hair of gold and hair of platinum white, and their eyes were opal and amethyst, tourmaline and jade. "Faster," they cried, "faster, faster." She raced, her feet melting the stone wherever they touched. "Faster!" the ghosts cried as one, and she screamed and threw herself forward. A great knife of pain ripped down her back, and she felt her skin tear open and smelled the stench of burning blood and saw the shadow of wings. And Daenerys Targaryen flew.  -A Game of Thrones, Daenerys IX
-
"I am the sword in the darkness. I am the watcher on the walls. I am the fire that burns against the cold, the light that brings the dawn, the horn that wakes the sleepers, the shield that guards the realms of men. I pledge my life and honor to the Night's Watch, for this night and all the nights to come." -A Game of Thrones, Jon VI
-
"They never came in force, if that's your meaning, but they were with us all the same, nibbling at our edges. We lost more outriders than I care to think about, and it was worth your life to fall behind or wander off. Every nightfall we'd ring our camps with fire. They don't like fire much, and no mistake. When the snows came, though … snow and sleet and freezing rain, it's bloody hard to find dry wood or get your kindling lit, and the cold … some nights our fires just seemed to shrivel up and die. Nights like that, you always find some dead come the morning." -A Dance with Dragons, Jon XII
-
"The summers have been shorter since the last dragon died, and the winters longer and crueler." -The Hedge Knight
-
"To go north, you must journey south. To reach the west, you must go east. To go forward you must go back, and to touch the light you must pass beneath the shadow." -A Clash of Kings, Daenerys III
-
We should have twenty trebuchets, not two, and they should be mounted on sledges and turntables so we could move them. It was a futile thought. He might as well wish for another thousand men, and maybe a dragon or three. -A Storm of Swords, Jon VIII
(i would like to highlight in this particular chapter, in which jon wishes for a dragon or three, he is defending the wall against an army with unnumbered soldiers that attack in the night, and they fight until dawn comes. does that ring any bells?)
-
That night she dreamt that she was Rhaegar, riding to the Trident. But she was mounted on a dragon, not a horse. When she saw the Usurper's rebel host across the river they were armored all in ice, but she bathed them in dragonfire and they melted away like dew and turned the Trident into a torrent. -A Storm of Swords, Daenerys III

Bro...how the fuck did I not realize this?! OH MY GODS OF COURSE! The Hunters of Artemis are CLEARLY based off the Elves from LOTR. Let me clarify, both groups are immortal, but THEY BOTH CAN DIE IN BATTLE. 
WHATTHEFUCK-?!

I just can’t get over how, knowing that “hands of healing” is a foretold sign of Gondor’s lost king, Aragorn must have been so careful all of his life, tending to his soldiers as Thorongil without evoking suspicion from Ecthelion or Denethor,  then again concealing himself as Strider so as to not to draw attention coming into Minas Tirith after the battle of the Pelennor Fields . . . only for Faramir to wake up immediately like OH SO YOU MUST BE THE KING THEN?? in front of everyone

the maiar as chaotic forces of nature
I'm aware that the Ainur have gender and assume their desired forms when they walk among mortals, but also I think it would be very cool if they were commonly referred to by it/it’s pronouns. I just feel like it could be used in a different context than it’s used when referring to a living sentient being here, rather than implying the person is an object it's giving them the respect they've earned by being a force of nature. I mostly hc this with the Maiar rather the Valar, seeing as the Valar are more personified and focused then the raw energy the Maiar give off. they're Ladies and Lords of their “realms” (concepts they're in charge of/represent) and the Maiar are their underlings, powerful but unable to control that energy without the focus of their Vala. They're living scraps of the Song flapping around and can be sheer forces of chaos if left unchecked (hence the importance of the ones that turned to Melkor, they were able to attain free will and were trapped in an in-between state that left them both more powerful (unable to have the original vala to keep them in line) and more unstable (difficulty focusing that energy for the same reason.) perhaps that's why Sauron was trusted with being lieutenant, he was one of the only corrupted Maiar to be able to completely separate from his old master, gain full potential of his energy, and serve a new one who was able to focus that. The downside is when Melkor went down, Sauron absolutely cracked and without a “lens” lost a lot of power. Somehow he rebuilt himself, but in the end he wasn't able to hold himself together and his presence in the world dispersed.
Back to my point, I think it would make some sense for those born outside of Valinor, away from common interaction with and personification of the Maiar, to refer to them as It’s out of a respect for their nature. Also combining this with my headcanon that most prefer to remain androgynous (they're fucking SPIRITS). They're “it’s” in the same way a river, a ocean, a volcano, are. Raw natural energy at a higher plane of existence than the residents of Arda can’t fully comprehend, and out of respect, won't pretend to try. I just think it's Neat

Headcanon:
The three hobbit ‘types/breeds’ are subspecies of Men(Stoors), Elves(Fallohides) and Dwarves(Harefoots).
The hobbits that are the descendants of the three mixing into one are a quarterbid species and although they’re more closely related to the Race of Men due to their Stoor part being the most genetically dominant out of the three they can curiously reproduce with Race of Men, Elves and Dwarves a like.
Hobbits eat six courses a day not out of gluttonous greed but out of biological need like we need three meal courses a day.
