“I would rather share one lifetime with you than face all the Ages of this world alone.” – Arwen

Happy Thranduil Thursday, everyone!

For the Tolkien quote #ThranduilSpark theme. I originally had it at much higher resolution, but it was too big for Tumblr. 😔  I’m thinking maybe spring for the next theme?

All the realms of the Elves in the third age are guarded Realms, in the sense that they are protected. But the Woodland Realm is a little different than the other Elven realms in that the guarding is obvious: it’s a closed city, definitely more fortified.The idea that emerged was that it would be like being in a forest except you’re underground. A sort of underground palace that would somehow feel Elven.

I want to know, why did you come back? Look, I know you doubt me, I know you always have. And you’re right. I often think of Bag End. I miss my books. And my armchair. And my garden. See, that’s where I belong. That’s home. That’s why I came back, ‘cause you don’t have one. A home. It was taken from you. But I will help you take it back if I can.
