Someday– possibly someday soon– Sebastian Stan’s agent is going to call him with a script.
“What’s the role?” he’ll ask.
“Well,” Sebastian Stan’s agent will say, “he’s the closeted son of a politician, struggling with PTSD after his military service.”
“Uh-huh. What’s he named?”
“Theodore Roosevelt O’Toole, but–”
“I’ll take it.”
“Are you sure you don’t want to read the script first?”
“No. No need. This is the role I was born to play.”
Update: Legolas’ pupils are about 3.5 cm wide each. Now drawing kawaii Legolas on physics assignment.
And they told you science was no fun.
I’m going to do it. I’m going to hand it in.
Legolas’s pupil size isn’t the problem here, though. 5 leagues is 17.262 miles. The curvature of the Earth means that for a person of average height, the visual horizon is less than three miles away. Even if your vision is telescopic and the atmosphere is perfectly clear, you can’t see around the planet. If they were standing on a hill, it would have to be at LEAST 198 feet above sea level in order to see the horizon at 17.2 miles away, with nothing tall in between. Which, knowing Rohan, isn’t impossible.
But consider: Elven satellite eyeballs.

@sidereanuncia it’s back, the post that I can only imagine haunts your nightmares
I shall never find peace.
Also, for what it’s worth, there’s absolutely no reason to believe that the curvature of Middle Earth is the same as that of Earth.
There’s no evidence that Middle Earth curves.
Yeah there is. The Silmarillion states that the world was curved after the fall of Numenor (I believe), preventing access to Valinor. But Elves (among others) can travel the straight path across it.
So middle earth is round, but not for Elves because magic.
So wait, the reason he can see that far is because Elves just have the ability to ignore the curve of the earth? That’s awesome. It also means that no matter how good your optics got, you would always want elf eyes manning the spyglass because they can see arbitrarily far while everybody else is limited by this ‘horizon’ bullshit.
Oh thank God, my poor elf prince has seen too much in this post
Elves are flat-earthers
This post went from amusing to horrifying, to be brought back down to amusing, sprinkled in with some cannon explanation, and then you leave me here in fucking outrage
This post really was a rollercoaster.
for elves it was a straight line
Look at this gem I found!
steve’s going to b a drama queen and like be bleeding out while bucky holds onto him & he’s like ‘i think it’s the end of the line, buck…’ & bucky is just like ‘it’s the end of the line when i say it’s the end of the line asshole’
afterwards it eventually becomes an inside joke and one day when steve gets a paper cut he manages to say “it’s the end of the-“ before bucky shoves him out a window
when someone says I’m being over dramatic
No but this is actually me with every little petty issue I have

Someone: So... are you a boy or a girl?
Loki: I’m a god.
Someone: No, like... what’s in your pants?
I’m pretty sure the audience doesn’t get his New Zealand dry sense of humor. This is good stuff.
