And Elrond Half-Elven looked into the eyes of his daughter Arwen and said, ‘NO WAY, you CANNOT marry that human. Humans are gross.’

And to that Arwen replied, ‘But father, did not your brother Elros choose to live as a human and founded Númenor, the great nation of men from which Aragorn is descended?’

Elrond then said, ‘Shut up.’

—  J.R.R. Tolkien, somewhere in The Lord of the Rings, probably. 

Young she was and yet not so. The braids of her dark hair was touched by no frost; her white arms and clear face were flawless and smooth, and the light of stars was in her bright eyes, grey as a cloudless night; yet queenly she looked, and thought and knowledge were in her glance, as of one who has known many things that the years bring.


Because this deleted scene will forever be my proof that Arwen and Legolas are very dear to each other. This is a deleted/unused scene wherein Legolas comes to say goodbye to Arwen/they say goodbye to each other in Rivendell in The Fellowship of the Ring.

We need to talk about this, okay? Elves say goodbye, hello, thank you, I love you by touching their fingers to their breast and extending out. The most we ever see Legolas do with other people, when not to save them is the constancy of Aragorn and Legolas clasping each others one shoulder. 

Which is usually a flat movement, from resting arms to shoulder.


This is the extension from the heart, to someone’s cheek. Matching. 

In a very precious way. This is like love and the possibility of an eternal goodbye to someone you care greatly for. I desperately want this scene to be released one day (along with the Arwen-Galadriel one near to the Mirror) and I will not listen to anyone who disbelieves.
