Think i must start posting there. And this is not bad way to start!)
The most impressive naval career of all the female sailors is that of William Brown, a black woman who spent at least twelve years on British warships, much of this time in the extremely demanding role of captain of the foretop. A good description of her appeared in London’s Annual Register in September 1815: “She is a smart, well-formed figure, about five feet four inches in height, possessed of considerable strength and great activity; her features are rather handsome for a black, and she appears to be about twenty-six years of age.” The article also noted that “in her manner she exhibits all the traits of a British tar and takes her grog with her late messmates with the greatest gaiety.”
Brown was a married woman and had joined the navy around 1804 following a quarrel with her husband. For several years she served on the Queen Charlotte, a three-decker with 104 guns and one of the largest ships in the Royal Navy. Brown must have had nerve, strength, and unusual ability to have been made captain of the foretop on such a ship….The captain of the foretop had to lead a team of seamen up the shrouds of the foremast, and then up the shrouds of the fore-topmast and out along the yards a hundred feet or more above the deck….
At some point in 1815, it was discovered that Brown was a woman and her story was published in the papers, but this does not seem to have affected her naval career….What is certain is that Brown returned to the Queen Charlotte and rejoined the crew.

I was about to go to sleep then strangecarcajou prompted the cutest thing that was ever prompted and I had to. that would be, “ickle Thorin making it obnoxiously clear he wants to marry Dwalin”
"Mister Balin, me and Dwalin are going to marry when I grow up!"
"isn’t… isn’t it a bit too soon to take such decisions, young lad?"
"but I know I want to! and I will"
"just… try not… to say it in front of your parents, won’t you?"
Beasts of Burden #2 Lost - READ THE WHOLE ISSUE HERE
Fair warning this chapter is pretty powerful, make sure you pay attention to the details in certain panels. It’s most definitely one of my favourites of the series, but I won’t deny that it makes me emotional to read it.

Easily the most painful yet best of the Beasts of Burden stories I’ve read to date.
