dark galadriel

“In place of the Dark Lord you will set up a Queen. And I shall not be dark, but beautiful and terrible as the Morning and the Night! Fair as the Sea and the Sun and the Snow upon the Mountain! Dreadful as the Storm and the Lightning! Stronger than the foundations of the earth. All shall love me and despair!” In the movie, what she says is different, which is: “In place of a Dark Lord, you would have a queen! Not dark, but beautiful and terrible as the dawn! Treacherous as the sea! Stronger than the foundations of the earth! All shall love me, and despair”

I saw this post while perusing my dash and I became so enraptured with the thought of Lucy Liu as Galadriel I just had to draw it out before the mental image disappeared. Dress is based off of this and this, images compiled in inspiration of Galadriel by @lotrfashion, who themselves have very, very, very amazing Asian lotr fancasts which I would highly recommend looking at. Note: I debated whether or not I should give her Lucy’s darker hair color (because I absolutely adore her hair), but decided to take a chance and keep Galadriel’s canon hair color, as it is important to many plot and character points (including her name).

I really enjoyed this, and may do more in the future :D

Top 5 Tolkien songs

Oh god no why did I pick this meme. Uh, I’m gonna cheat and separate LOTR and the Hobbit:


1. the rivendell elves’ “lullaby” to bilbo

2. the road goes ever on (plus all the other version in LOTR but I’m classifying this as hobbit because it started in the hobbit)

3. the misty mountains cold (would have been second place if I didn’t count all the Road variations in lotr)

4. that’s what bilbo baggins hates

5. tra-la-la-lally (both versions)


2. a walking song (home is behind the world ahead…the book one)

2. the song of durin

3. the man in the moon

4. a elbereth gilthoniel

5. toss-up between the song of tinuviel (from a knife in the dark) and namarie (galadriel’s song of eldamar)

 I probably forgot something really obvious and am gonna smack myself later.
