I think the Battle of the five armies and in particular our charge out of the fortress. We had been waiting two years to do that scene and on the morning we filmed Richard Armitage turned to me and the gleam in his eye said it all. He said to me , “We have been waiting two years to do this and I can see you are ready”. He was so much our king in that single moment. It was like the charge of the Rohirrim in the Return of the King which I was also lucky to be a part of. Just …..well hard to describe, but very emotional.

Things I’d like to see in TABA:

- Legolas getting into some serious trouble after following Bolg ..alone
- Thranduil being told Legolas is missing/held captive/hurt
- Thranduil levelling Laketown to the ground (and Smaug with it) bc it happened to be on his way to retrieving his little greenleaf
- Embarrassed Legolas


"No,no, no, no. He could not have! he would not have. How can I live when my sunlight has betrayed me? The only thing that shed me light in this darkness, and even he has forsaken me. He who soothes my wounds has caused me the greatest pain of them all. I will never know love again! It seems I was right after all, but my heart was too foolish to listen- it was all too good to be true. The only thing I can love is gold! Gold, as cold a mistress as she is, will not betray me. Gold is the only love I need! Ah! I shall never be happy, never more! As long as I live."

Let me tell you something if you think that Thorin didn’t suffer as much-or more- as Bilbo during Bilbo’s betrayal, then you are very, very wrong.

(as good as i could draw with an injured finger! thank you for all the nice people leaving messages in my ask. especially you, anon from seville… it warms my heart to know i have friends in my homecountry, after all these years *UuU*)
