I have this huge craving for fics that focus on dwarf culture. Especially with great misunderstandings. Especially with focus on gender and perceptions.
Wondering if anyone could point me in the direction of some quality ones. Doesn’t matter if there’s any ships, or even no romance at all. I’m just fascinated with people’s take on their secretive culture.
THERE IS WATER AT THE BOTTOM OF THE OCEAN
CARRY THE WATER
REMOVE THE WATER
For those who don’t get it:
Notice the air bubbles going down? He’s walking upside down on ice and there’s air in the buckets.
Not quite sure how he’s managing the walking though.
When I was a kid, whenever I had nightmares it always involved some type of tricksy, bloodthirsty gnomes or goblins. They’d go around causing mayhem and hurting my pets, family and friends. I don’t remember if they ever went so far as killing (it has been about 20 years lol) but I definitely remember there being blood. I could never warn people about them because they could turn into regular garden gnomes at will. I’ll note that we, or anybody else in the neighborhood, ever had garden gnomes. If only ever seen them on tv.
Several years later, when I was a teenager, marked the beginning of my fascination with myths and legends. This is about when I learn that traditional fairy myths involve chaotic, mischievous and malicious creatures. Well, now doesn’t that sound eerily familiar to my nightmare gnomes? I HAD NO KNOWLEDGE OF THIS AS A KID!
I’m now convinced that I spent my childhood being terrorized by fairy folk. It doesn’t help that my childhood home was in a very rural area. We had a first across the street and I spent most of my time playing in it.
Thor has a hankering for some rainbow ice cream, but Heimdall won’t open the Bifrost.

Can we please have more commercials like this?
In class today, we had a lovely discussion how the psychology of color, the ideology of stereotypical color assignment, and how it all relates in cinema and the success of movies depending on the societies creating movies and the societies viewing those movies and used this video as an example of the societal norm of “girls only like sweet, pink, sensitive things”. It was very insightful and got the class out of taking a quiz.
Also, Jesus fuck we need more advertisements like this.
I’m already in favor of this sort of thing but the use of the Beastie Boys just pushed this into legendary status.
They turned as misogynist as fuck song into something adorable and amazing and important A+++++++
STANDING OVATION FOR THIS COMMERCIAL
