THE NINE CHOIRS OF HEAVEN. An info-graphic for my editorial class and god am I thankful it’s done. Way too much went into this than what I had time for, but hey… I actually kind of like it?
Now excuse me, I must return to my fashion major lifestyle and go sew a coat u_u
EDIT: Re-uploaded with easier viewing!
You know what they say! One man’s tragic flaw is another man’s pretty reasonable personality asset under the circumstances, I guess. Do…do they say that?
lotr modern college au
punk, fixes motorcycles. undeclared until sophomore year when he realized he was destined to be a political science major and a resident advisor for "the hobbits," a student organization that experiments with illegal substances. keeps in touch with his high school sweetheart, arwen.
philosophy major, math minor. constantly stoned. "what do your elf-eyes see?" managed to get aragorn high exactly one time in which aragorn hallucinated that he was the ruler of an undead army.
history major, economics minor. meets legolas through a group project for a required course that neither of them like. they eventually become roommates after aragorn finds his calling as an ra. they keep a white board on their door which they use to keep track of tally marks for all of their endless competitions.
business major. worst roommate ever. roomed with aragorn freshman year and constantly took his stuff without permission. transferred after sophomore year.
dance/fine arts major. his father is incredibly disappointed that his son is not majoring in something "real."
undeclared until 3 days before the major declaration deadline and began receiving personalized e-mails from the registrar. took so many drama classes that he decided he might as well be a drama major. his senior thesis is a one-act one-man play in which a single actor slowly goes insane while stroking a ring and talking to himself. no one knows what's going on. the scene just fades to black with no explanation.
biology major. incredibly dependable. takes care of drunk friends (read: pippin). has two campus jobs, one at the greenhouse and one at the student-run café. constantly trying to work up the courage to ask out the cute girl (rosie) who is always the first customer at the café. other hobbits try to mooch café food off him but only frodo ever succeeds.
sociology major (he heard rumors it was the easiest major). legolas's supplier. goes abroad for a semester, during which pippin is the main supplier.
also a sociology major (because merry declared sociology). briefly models for one of faramir's art projects. convinces faramir to complete his degree when denethor tries to pull him out of school.
alumni always trying to influence school policy. constantly shows up to frat reunions wearing a fedora.
super senior linguistics major. lives in a corner of the library where he stacks piles of books. other people refer to this area as "gollum's cave." no one understands him because he constantly uses grammar constructions of other languages while trying to speak english. one time when frodo was undeclared he forced frodo to go to a linguistics department function and just left him there with the creepy linguistics librarian who may have had spiderwebs in her hair.
women's and gender studies major. also on the speech and debate team. constantly knocks on aragorn's door while he's trying to skype with arwen. one time she submitted two identical resumes for an internship application, one under her name and one under her cousin's name. when her cousin's application got accepted but hers wasn't she was able to expose the misogyny running rampant through the application process.
pre-med. attends a neighboring school. could have studied out of the country but wanted to stay close to aragorn. she visits aragorn as much as possible, which caused him to sexile boromir quite often during freshman year. this may have been the reason boromir stole his stuff all the time.
sociology professor. always holds class at 8:10am and deducts points for no reason.
that one biology professor who can make her students cry just by looking at them. her assignments are so intimidating that they can also have the same effect. most students drop her classes within the first few weeks.
environmental science professor. goes on so many tangents during his lectures that he rarely covers all of the syllabus material. came up with the idea for the school mascot.
professor emeritus of creative writing. always talking about his novel (which he never actually finishes until long after everyone graduates). also always talking about the backpacking adventure he took in europe with professor thorin after they got out of college.
head of the drama department and football coach. constantly fired up about challenging the rival school, mordor university. once disappeared mid-semester and came back with chemically straightened hair. offers frodo extra credit to be the school mascot (which requires a very heavy white tree costume that frodo always complains about). as the mascot, frodo routinely gets kidnapped by mordor university for their pranks. sam usually rescues him, although gollum keeps interfering by fighting frodo over the costume (because he needs that last bit of extra credit to graduate). one time they ended up in a fight that got so violent that frodo lost a bit of one of his fingers.
the county sheriff who sees all. sarumon is his deputy. nearly arrests frodo and sam at one of the hobbit parties but aragorn, legolas, gimli, and the other hobbits manage to divert sauron's attention by revving the engines of aragorn's motorcycles, none of which have mufflers. the night goes so horribly that the only thing frodo remembers is waking up in the emergency room. it becomes part of gondor university legend.
This is a set of chocolates made to look (and somewhat act) like a set of paints. Alas, this limited-edition set is only available in Japan, and it’ll run you 4,200 yen (around $43 US).
That’s probably for the best, though, because I would refuse to ever actually eat something that perfect.
