do u ever just sit down and realize how fucking great lord of the rings is like fuck we’re all still crying about sams speech and his po-ta-toes and i mean how amazing is the battle of the pelennor fields?11?!!? and the music you guys thE MUSIC and aragorns resting bitch face and legolas and gimlis kill count game “tHAT STILL ONLY COUNTS AS ONE” and “I AM NO MAN” and “ONE DOES NOT SIMPLY WALK INTO MORDOR” and like the hobbit squad right hobbits are fucking cool man and  i mean do you ever just do that do you sit down and think about lord of the rings

do you

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 Dunedain ranger, and I go to the Prancing Pony Inn in Bree where I brood in the corner (I’m eighty-seven). I’m a goth (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.

 I think the thing I love about Sauron most as a character is just how much he actually *revels* in his evil? It’s amazing to read and even better to write. I mean this is the guy who laughed as Numenor fell, the guy who specifically stole all of the black horses from Rohan,  The guy who refers to shelob as his cat. I dono. It’s just…I admire you sir, for your complete and total dedication to this.

When I read, I become a part of the character. If the character feels lost in their world, I feel lost in life, if they’re confused, I become confused, if they’re breathlessly in love, so am I. And this is what I love about reading so much. The ability to become lost in someone else’s life, someone else’s world. To be able to leave my life, and live in someone else’s is the most amazing thing in the world.

Fantasy Painting Original Art.c.1978.
In the fall of 1975, Greg and Tim Hildebrandt burst into the world of fantasy art with a calendar of their renderings of characters and scenes from J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings. Their work was remarkable for its time in the way that they used colour to portray incredible light and shadow contrasts, and for their vigorous depictions of the denizens of Middle Earth. Their incredible imaginations created an amazing array of brilliant and unique paintings.
This sombre and mysterious image may have been a preliminary illustration for the Hildebrandt’s “At the Grey Havens”.
