and the hobbit means so very very much to me

anonymous asked:

why would you like fili's death? it was so unfair compared to thorins and kili's. they both had this dramtatic scenes and then theres just fili being thrown down!

I like fili’s death because it was true to his characterization! fili cares about his family so very much and he protected kili by volunteering to go to the upper levels, preventing kili to die in that way, and he shouted both “go”and “run” to thorin and co, trying to protect them when he couldn’t do that physically

and that is just a very fili thing to do

besides, i don’t get all this “only a death caused by fighting and battle and dramatics is a good death” thing

for me, fili’s death has a lot of meaning and that’s why i like it!
