isildurs heir

The Six Types of Middle-Earth Names

1. Characters whose Names are Secretly Insults: 

Samwise: means “Half-wise” or “Half-wit.” He is Stupid Gamgee

Faramir: Boromir’s name means “steadfast jewel”, but Faramir’s name just means “sufficient jewel.”

Sufficient.

Denethor took one look at baby Faramir and thought “eh I guess he exists or whatever” which is very in character

 2. Characters who Have Way Too Many Names

Examples include Aragorn son of Arathorn son of Arador heir of Isildur Elendil’s son, descendant of Numenor,  Thorongill,  Eagle of the Star,  Dúnadan, Strider,  Wingfoot, Longshanks, Elessar, Edhelharn, Elfstone, Estel (”Hope,”) The Chieftain of the Dúnedain, King of the West, High King of Gondor and Arnor, and Envinyatar the Renewer of the House of Telcontar

Wait I’m sorry did I say “examples” plural

Cuz that was all one guy

3. Characters whose parents must’ve been prophets

-Frodo means “wise by experience.” His story is about becoming wise by experience
-A lady named Elwing turns into a bird (geddit)

4. Characters whose families were so lazy that they copy-pasted the same first half of a name onto multiple people

Théoden/Théodred 
Aragorn/Arathorn/Arador 
Éomer/ Éomund/Éowyn/Éorl
Elladan/Elrohir/Elrond/Elros/Elwing/Elenwë/Elendil/Eldarion (the laziest family) 

5.Characters whose Names are Expertly Designed so that Newbies can’t Remember Who is Who and Feel Sad

All the people mentioned in number 4
Celeborn, Celegorm, Celebrimbor, Celebrian
All the rhyming dwarf names in the Hobbit
Sauron and Saruman
Arwen and Éowyn

6. Name so nice, you say it twice

Legoas Greenleaf: Legolas’s first name means “Greenleaf” in elvish. Legolas is Greenleaf Greenleaf (thranduil really likes green leaves ok)

King Théoden’s name means King in Rohirric. Tolkien decided to name his king “King.” All hail King King



 this is what the fanbase means when we say tolkien was a creative genius with language

  • Aragorn in the films: reluctant hero who is weary of accepting the crown of his ancestors
  • Aragorn in the books: literally uses the palantír to give sauron the figurative middle finger because fuck you im the heir of isildur bitch remember this sword I FIXED IT

Aragorn the reluctant and faintly embarrassed best man at Legolas and Gimli’s wedding.

Aragorn with his face in his hands as they get their serious mack on after the culturally-appropriate “you man now kiss the husband” bit, mumbling to himself in shell-shocked terror “the things I saw on the road…”

Gimli and Legolas participating in an epic cake-eating competition while Aragorn passes out back-up cake for the guests and explains: “I expected this.”

Aragorn having to give a best man speech for both Legolas and Gimli. Both sides of the family arguing loudly over which speech should be given first. The Elves eventually agree to go last because they have greater patience than the short-lived dwarves. The dwarves take grievous insult to this. Aragorn trying to explain how Legolas was like a brother to him and Gimli is a fine warrior. Aragorn being unable to get through either speech thanks to Legolas and Gimli loudly heckling each other’s speeches.

A couple dishonored dead ghosts show up just to see this most insane and greatest party ever thrown. Aragorn standing to the side of the dance floor while the dishonored dead try to lasso him in to dance with them. “You are free. I released you. Please. Go. Go now.”

Aragorn with his head on the table while Eowyn and Faramir giggle in a corner together and be super lovey-dovey at the wedding. Aragorn getting a headache from all the hitting himself in the face when Eowyn catches the bouquet (Gimli threw it) because she SLIDE TACKLED another female guest to get it and most of the lady guests new better than to challenge of shieldmaiden of Rohan for the damn bouquet anyway. Aragorn having to console a drunk Faramir that Boromir would have loved Eowyn, he would have, and yes, he was the best big brother in the world, I agree.

Aragorn having to carry a drunk off his ASS Gandalf back to his damn room while Gandalf might be hitting on him???? “You’re looking pretty Gandalf the Green, old friend, why don’t we just get you to your bed.” “Get me to YOUR bed, heir of Isildur! Hellah.” “By the bane of Isildur, nO.”

Aragorn staring mournfully at a pile of drunken hobbits writhing on the dance floor doing God knows what. It might be dancing. At least three of them are kind of cousins, please let it be dancing. 

Aragorn sliding down to the ground as they send Legolas and Gimli off on their honeymoon, Gimli carrying Legolas (very slowly) in his arms into their bedroom while the two shout the lewdest things imaginable over their shoulders as a preemptive play-by-play of the upcoming night for their wedding guests.

Aragorn the saddest best man ever, is what I’m saying.

Hi my name is Aragorn son of Arathorn heir of Isildur descendent of Numenor King Elessar of the house Telcontar and I have long ebony black hair (almost as long as my name) and icy blue eyes like limpid tears and a lot of people tell me I look like Beren (AN: if u don’t know who he is get da hell out of here!). I’m a man but I live for over 100 years. I have pale white skin. I’m also a Dunedan, and I go to the Prancing Pony Inn in Bree where I brood in the corner (I’m eighty-seven). I’m a Ranger (in case you couldn’t tell) and I wear mostly black.  For example today I was wearing a black cloak with black trim and black boots and black clothes and smoking a black pipe. I was brooding in my corner in the Prancing Pony. It was night-time and raining so there was no sun, which I was very happy about. A group of hobbits stared at me. I put up my middle finger at them.

“Aragorn threw back his cloak. The elven-sheath glittered as he grasped it, and the bright blade of Andúril shone like a sudden flame as he swept it out. ‘Elendil!’ he cried. ‘I am Aragorn, son of Arathorn, and am called Elessar, the Elfstone, Dúnadan, the heir of Isildur Elendil’s son of Gondor. Here is the Sword that was Broken and is forged again! Will you aid me or thwart me? Choose swiftly!”

“Little do I resemble the figures of Elendil and Isildur as they stand carven in their majesty in the halls of Denethor. I am but the heir of Isildur, not Isildur himself. I have had a hard life and a long; and the leagues that lie between here and Gondor are a small part in the count of my journeys. I have crossed many mountains and many rivers, and trodden many plains, even into the far countries of Rhûn and Harad where the stars are strange. But my home, such as I have, is in the North. For here the heirs of Valandil have ever dwelt in long line unbroken from father unto son for many generations. Our days have darkened, and we have dwindled; but ever the Sword has passed to a new keeper.”

Today in Middle-Earth: Aragorn looks in the Palantir and reveals himself to Sauron (March 6th, 3019 T.A.)

‘Nay, my friends, I am the lawful master of the Stone, and I had both the right and the strength to use it, or so I judged. The right cannot be doubted. The strength was enough – barely.’  

 He drew a deep breath. 'It was a bitter struggle, and the weariness is slow to pass. I spoke no word to him, and in the end I wrenched the Stone to my own will. That alone he will find hard to endure. And he beheld me. Yes, Master Gimli, he saw me, but in other guise than you see me here. If that will aid him, then I have done ill. But I do not think so. To know that I lived and walked the earth was a blow to his heart, I deem; for he knew it not till now. The eyes in Orthanc did not see through the armour of Théoden; but Sauron has not forgotten Isildur and the sword of Elendil. Now in the very hour of his great designs the heir of Isildur and the Sword are revealed; for l showed the blade re-forged to him. He is not so mighty yet that he is above fear; nay, doubt ever gnaws him.' 

Destiel and Aragorn x Arwen

So I was watching Lord of the Rings lately and I couldn’t help but think about how much the relationship between Aragorn x Arwen and between Dean x Castiel is alike.
 
I mean, let me start with the similarities between Arwen and Cas first. Hell just look at their eye color.

Anyways, that’s not the point, let’s get started:
Both, Cas and Arwen, are immortal. Castiel is an angel of the Lord, his father high above, almost like a king for some people. Then there is Arwen. An Elf, an actual princess, the daughter of the Lord of Rivendell, eminent just like Cas.
Both have been quite alone in their long past and both never happen to experience love until they met their ones. (Unecsessarly to say that I am talking about Aragorn and Dean here.)
However, then there is the fact that both happen to be human at some point. Arwen decided to choose humanity to be together with Aragorn. Arwen: “I would rather share one lifetime with you than face all the ages of this world alone.”
It was a hard desicion for her to make, but she chose Aragorn over a fulfilled and immortal life, even if that would mean her death.
Arwen: “This was my choice, Ada, whether by your will or not, there is no ship now that can bear me hence.
So you see, to her it’s more important to be with Argorn than anything else. Of course at the beginning she was quite unsure about what to do. She didn’t know rather Aragorn is going to live and going to become the king of Gondor or not. But important is that she never lost hope.
Elrond: “He [Aragorn] is not coming back. Why do you linger here when there is no hope?
Arwen: “There is still hope.”

Until she saw her future, their future. Together.

Now you would argue with the fact that Castiel didn’t choose to be human and a mortal life and that is true, BUT remember why he became human! Why the angels were falling! I mean of course it was Metatrons work but think further back. Also don’t forget that Cas would choose Dean over and over again. “You have to choose, Castiel. Us. Or them.”  And he chose Dean. “You gave us order, Castiel, and we gave you our trust. Don’t lose it over one man.” and Cas’ answer was: “No. I can’t.”

Who knows what would have happend if he didn’t choose Dean. Maybe everything would have been better for him, we don’t know, but he didn’t care about that at all, because all he cares about is Dean and that’s the same with Arwen and Aragorn. Just think about it! If Castiel would have to choose between an immortal life and being together with Dean for the rest of his life, wouldn’t he choose Dean and with that mortality as well? Yes! I mean, come on, it’s quite obvious.
So infact both Arwen and Castiel would sacrifice everything, just to be with the ones they love and care about the most. Both of them would do everything to make sure they will be fine. Like for example with appearing in their dreams. Aragorn: “I am asleep. This is a dream.”  Arwen: “Then it is a good dream.”

Dean: “I’m dreaming, aren’t I?”

or just by their presence and comforting words.

Now to my last point. Lets be honest both are hella sassy. Castiel:“You should show me some respect. I dragged you out of hell, I can throw you back in.”

Arwen:“What’s that? A Ranger caught off his guard?”

Like I said: Think about it, it’s quite obvious.


So now let me start with the similarities between Dean and Aragorn.

First of all is to say that both of their parents died “quite early”. Of course Dean was around 27, when his father died to safe him, but he was only four years old when he saw his mother burning on the ceiling. After that Dean started following his fathers orders, continued the family business, took and still takes care of his little brother.

“’Cause you’re following Dad’s orders like a good little solider? Because you always do what he says without question? Are you that desperate for his approval?!”

He grew up very fast, too fast actually.


We don’t know much about Aragorns parents, just that his father served as Chieftain of the Dúnedain and that Aragorn was two years old, when his father got shot between his eyes, while he was hunting orcs and that his mother died when he was 74 years old.
However Aragorn didn’t see his mother often, after he left Imladris with the age of twenty, to fulfill his mothers wishes to become a Ranger and to wander in the wild. So we can see both did what their mother (in Aragorns case) or father (in Deans case) wanted them to do. Following their orders and wishes.
But still we know that Aragorn had a better relationship to his mother than Dean had to his father, though. Also Aragorn kind of grew up very fast and learned how to survive alone in the wild.
Next point is their past. Both Dean and Aragorn are quite afraid of their past or rather are having a kind of dark past.
Well, for Dean at least it is hard enough remembering what happened to his mother and thinking back to all these years of hunting with his father and brother to find the thing which killed Mary and which also destroyed his childhood.
Also looking at new seasons of Supernatural he is afraid of what he became. I mean like he was in hell, got the Mark of Cain then the Demon accident. Of course it’s not his fault but still all these things are hunting him.

He is ashamed of what he became and about letting that happen and as we know Dean he gives himself the fault for everything bad that happened.

Aragorn, in that case, is more ashamed about his relatives/ancestors, because they were seeking for power over whole middle earth and all that just beacuse of  this one ring.
“The Ring passed to Isildur, who had this one chance to destroy evil forever. But the hearts of Men are easily corrupted. And the Ring of Power has a will of its own. It betrayed Isildur to his death.”
He is afraid of becoming just like them.
Arwen: “Why do you fear the past? You are Isildur’s heir, not Isildur himself. You are not bound to his fate.
Aragorn: “The same blood flows in my veins. The same weakness.

Aslo Dean is kind of scared about becoming something he don’t want to be. Both are trying to hide the pain inside of them. Both are kind of broken, but still want to seem strong from outside. They love and care about everyone around them more than they love and care about themselves.
Aragorn:“I give hope to men and keep non for myself.

and

Dean:“ I know how you look into the mirrow and hate what you see!”


But despite that fact they keep on fighting for what’s right, because that’s what they are good at.
“I can see inside you, Dean! I can see how broken you are, how defeated; you can’t win and you know it, but you just keep fighting, just keep going through the motions. (…)”


If not saving themselves from their past or from their future, then at least saving as many people as they possibly can and that for the greater good.
But for exactly that, Dean as well as Aragorn, have got the ones they love the most by their sides. Cas loves Dean with all his flaws, no matter how broken Dean is inside, no matter what happend to him, even when he turned dark, Cas was there, always came when he called, always did everything Dean asked for. He is showing Dean how wonderful he is, that he is loved and that he is a beautiful person inside and out and Dean appreciates that more than even Castiel can imagine.

That’s the same with Aragorn and Arwen. Arwen stands by his side, always, she is showing him how important he is to her and knowing that he will not make the same mistake his ancestors did years ago, that he can be what he was meant to be and not be afraid of it. She gives him hope and strength.
Arwen: “Your time will come. You will face the same evil, and you will defeat it.”

And not to forget both are hella badass.

Castiel and Arwen are the best that could ever happen to Dean and Aragorn and they both are showing them that there is nothing to be afraid of as long as they have someone by their side, who loves them for exactly what they are and that is important. That is what they need in life. No matter how dark eveything can get, together they can defeat it.

A tragic love story between an immortal and a mortal. That’s what I signed up for!

I was rewatching “The Return of the King” and I’ve been struck by something I had never realized before about Elrond’s line (“Put aside the ranger, become who you were born to be”) to Aragorn in the tent scene in Rohan, right before Aragorn leaves for the Paths of the Dead. I’ve just had this sudden realization about how the choice of leaving out of the movies everything connected with Arnor and Aragorn’s connection with it is necessary to make the changes in Aragorn’s characterization work. Since movie-Aragorn is a reclutant hero and his character arc consists in going from randomly chilling at the Prancing Pony to accepting his responsability as the heir of Isildur, Arnor needed to be cut out of the story in order for his growth to be possible… And this lowkey annoys me. I’m sure someone has already pointed this out, but I really need to get it off my chest XD
