But can we talk about this gif for a second? Look at it, they are so in character:
Martin Fremann (Bilbo): “I don’t know why I’m doing this, but fuck it, I do it anyway.” Richard Armitage (Thorin): “I’m a very important dwarf, doing very important practice, because it’s important” James Nesbitt (Bofur): “HahahahaAHAHAHAA, LOOK AT HOW RIDICULOUS I LOOK! THIS IS SO FUN!!” Graham McTavish (Dwalin): “I’m doing it wrong, but I pull this through until the bitter end.” Adam Brown (Ori): “Look at me, I’m a cutie patootie!” Jed Brophy (Nori): “Wheee~ I’m gonna need this for my next raid~” William Kircher (Bifur): “I may have an axe stuck in my head, but I’m gonna show you spring chicken how to do this proper”
Imagine being Thranduil’s Queen and him looking proud at you during one of your speech thinking “she is the most beautiful human being I have ever seen, I am the luckiest man on Earth to have her by my side”
Imagine Legolas falling in love with you. You’d have caught his eye right when the two of you met, but when he heard you talk for the first time he was totally enchanted. He loved your determination, your temper and the way your eyes lit up when you talked about the things, that are important to you.
