favourite movies: The Lord of the Rings
The Lord of the Rings Meme | ten scenes (2/10)
Farewell to Lórien.
This is my favorite fucking scene.
If you’ve read the Silmarillion, you know who Fëanor was. If you don’t, Fëanor was the dickhead who created the Silmarils: three indescribably beautiful and magical jewels that contained the light and essence of the world before it became flawed. They were the catalyst for basically every important thing that happened in the First Age of Middle Earth.
It is thought that the inspiration for the Silmarils came to Fëanor from the sight of Galadriel’s shining, silver-gold hair.
He begged her three times for single strand of her beautiful hair. And every time, Galadriel refused him. Even when she was young, Galadriel’s ability to see into other’s hearts was very strong, and she knew that Fëanor was filled with nothing but fire and greed.
Fast forward to the end of the Third Age.
Gimli, visiting Lorien, is also struck by Galadriel’s beauty. During the scene where she’s passing out her parting gifts to the Fellowship, Galadriel stops empty-handed in front of Gimli, because she doesn’t know what to offer a Dwarf. Gimli tells her: no gold, no treasure… just a single strand of hair to remember her beauty by.
She gives him three. Three.
And this is why Gimli gets to be an Elf Friend, people. Because Galadriel looks at him and thinks he deserves what she refused the greatest Elf who ever lived—- and then twice that. And because he has no idea of the significance of what she’s just given him, but he’s going to treasure it the rest of his life anyway.
Just look at that smile on Legolas’s face in the last panel. He gets it. He knows the backstory. And I’m pretty sure this is the moment he reconsiders whether Elves and Dwarves can’t be friends after all.
Everyone look at this great fucking post

This is my favourite tid-bit of information regarding Lord of the Rings
"so why do you like lord of the rings so much?" [opens 80 slide per point presentation] [pulls out index cards] [places graphs on stands in front] [carefully arranges posters] [clears throat] "why, friend, i am so glad you asked"
pause your music and listen to this immediately
“Dalla told me something once. Val’s sister, Mance Rayder’s wife. She said that sorcery was a sword without a hilt. There is no safe way to grasp it.” “A wise woman.” Melisandre rose, her red robes stirring in the wind. “A sword without a hilt is still a sword, though, and a sword is a fine thing to have when foes are all about.”

So the rumor is Telltales Game of Thrones game might follow STANNIS FUCKING BARATHEON FROM THE WALL TO WINTERFELL GOD IS REAL Edit:*whispers* okay so now it looks like it’ll be about the people that help Stannis to Winterfell? I don’t think we’ll play as Stannis but he’ll…
I got it from an IGN article released today I believe. They hinted at a Stannis/Asha/Deepwood Motte type thing. Like I said in the edit I jumped the gun I just got too excited at the name Stannis being involved, but it does sound like he might be involved in some way either by helping him or his cause or being captured by his people? There’s not much info yet. http://m.ign.com/articles/2014/08/29/telltale-releases-first-game-of-thrones-title-information
Listen, okay? Listen. This is your chance, for you and this boy. I don’t trust myself to keep you two safe… Not anymore. Please. I’m begging you, please stay here. Stay here where it’s safe. Where you two’ll have a chance. You will meet people. You will make friends. People better than me… good people. That don’t have to look at you and feel ashamed at what they’ve put you through… Please, Clem… Where you won’t have to sleep with a gun next to you every night. Where you can be a kid for a while.
