But when Aragorn arose all that beheld him gazed in silence, for it seemed to them that he was revealed to them now for the first time. Tall as the sea-kings of old, he stood above all that were near; ancient of days he seemed and yet in the flower of manhood; and wisdom sat upon his brow, and strength and healing were in his hands, and a light was about him. And then Faramir cried:
Eowyn: But no living man am I! You are looking upon a woman. Eowyn am I, Eomund’s daughter. You stand between me and my lord and kin. Begone, if you be not deathless! For living or dark undead, I will smite you, if you touch him.“
The winged creature screamed at her, but then the Ringwraith was silent, as if in sudden doubt.
Witch King: *internally* The prophecy said no living man can kill me…that probably means women, too, right? Like, she’s a ‘man’ in a general sense. I wish I had thought about this scenario earlier, there are so many women around here. I’ll probably be fine. I can take her. I mean, the word woman has ‘man’ in it, there’s no way the prophecy was saying a girl can kill me. I got this.
On this day: Too Cool is one elimination away from surviving a Fatal 4-Way tag match at King of the Ring, but Christian nailing Grandmaster Sexay in the back of the head with his own belt tips the scales in favor of Edge & Christian who walk away with their 2nd WWF Tag Team Championship. (6/25/00)
do you ever think about how in the LOTR films Boromir’s defining quality is that he’s this protective older brother to everyone, from his little brother Faramir to the little hobbits…..and that being Faramir’s older brother meant trying to be a parental figure at the same time, trying to compensate for their missing mother and abusive father, trying to be everything, so that word “brother” has this special deeper meaning for Boromir
and his last words to Aragorn were “I would have followed you my brother, my captain, my king”
