hobbit gif


gif battle w/ @shiremaiden → #1 “Pity? It was pity that stayed Bilbo’s hand”

“He escaped the dungeons of Barad-dûr?”

“Escaped… or set loose? And now the Ring has drawn him near. He will never be rid of his need for it. He hates and loves the Ring, as he hates and loves himself. Sméagol’s life is a sad story. Yes, Sméagol, he was once called, before the Ring found him… before it drove him mad.”

“It’s a pity Bilbo didn’t kill him when he had the chance.”

Pity? It was pity that stayed Bilbo’s hand. Many that live deserve death. Some who die deserve life. Can you give it to them, Frodo? Do not be too eager to deal out death and judgement, for even the very wise cannot see all ends. My heart tells me that Gollum has some part to play yet, for good or evil, before this is over. The pity of Bilbo may rule the fate of Men.”

But can we talk about this gif for a second?
Look at it, they are so in character:

Martin Fremann (Bilbo): “I don’t know why I’m doing this, but fuck it, I do it anyway.”
Richard Armitage (Thorin): “I’m a very important dwarf, doing very important practice, because it’s important”
Graham McTavish (Dwalin): “I’m doing it wrong, but I pull this through until the bitter end.”
Adam Brown (Ori): “Look at me, I’m a cutie patootie!”
Jed Brophy (Nori): “Wheee~ I’m gonna need this for my next raid~”
William Kircher (Bifur): “I may have an axe stuck in my head, but I’m gonna show you spring chicken how to do this proper”

Perfect cast, Ladies and Gentleman.
