Things you don’t know about Lord of the Rings anymore

I  had an LOTR marathon with @illuminaughty-mess, who had never seen the films before, and I realized….after watching the films a billion times, there are things you no longer know. Like:

  • For the majority of the first half of FOTR, you don’t know Aragorn’s name is Aragorn. You also don’t know he’s a king.
  •  Boromir is only in the story for a few scenes in one-half of the shortest film in the series.
  • You don’t find out Boromir has a brother until after he’s dead, in the second half of the Two Towers. For the entire first half of the trilogy, there is no indication he has a brother.
  • Despite his reputation for “crazy CG battle moments” , Legolas has no more than Four (!) of them in the original trilogy. 
  • You don’t find out Elrond and Arwen are related until The Two Towers. The first time they have an onscreen conversation is the scene where Elrond talks about Aragorn’s eventual death.
  • You don’t know that Rohan is a kingdom that exists until the Two Towers. 
  • If you were watching the films for the first time, you wouldn’t know the geography of Middle-Earth. For all you know, Isengard is inside of Mordor.  Gondor  might be east of the Shire. Is Minas Tirith the same as the White City or is it another name for Helm’s Deep or is it another kingdom? You just don’t know.
  • The films never explicitly state that Gollum used to be a hobbit. 

Don’t imagine the elves of Mirkwood watching their king change after their queen’s death.

Don’t imagine Thranduil going mad with grief and loss and putting on a stone façade so nothing will be able to hurt him as much as this did.

Don’t imagine him chugging wine down to erase all the good she gave him.

Don’t imagine him drowning in alcohol to erase the memory of her.

Don’t imagine him working himself half to death every day to distract himself from coming back to an eternally half empty bed.

Don’t imagine young Legolas, still grieving over his mother, having to put his feelings aside and care for his father, emotionally unavailable and delusional, because he’s the only thing close to family that he has left.

Don’t imagine Thranduil quietly asking young Legolas to sleep in his room to fill the other side of the bed because he can’t stand subconsciously waiting for his wife to fill it.

Don’t imagine him panicking because the smell of her is fading off of her pillowcase and clothes; and no matter what he does, he can’t make or preserve the same smell and feeling that she left behind.

Don’t imagine him sobbing into her pillow, cursing himself for not being able to be the safety blanket he promised her he’d be and not being able to keep the one good thing in his life alive.

Don’t imagine him in a drunken stupor, stumbling around his room and crying out for his wife to “please come back” because he just can’t take it anymore.

Don’t imagine Legolas standing outside of his father’s bedroom and hearing his father’s cry out elvish words of immeasurable agony and thinking that this is what love really is.

Don’t imagine him and all the times he’s come dangerously close to fading because he got too sober to bear the weight of life on his shoulders.

Don’t imagine Thranduil not being able to tell his son that he loves him because he’s too scared of being attached to someone that might break him all over again.

Don’t imagine Legolas bottling every one of his emotions up for the next hundreds of years because he can’t afford to feel when trying to heal his father.

Don’t imagine Legolas knowing that, despite everything he might say, that deep down, his father loves his little leaf more than he can say.

Dedicated to my buddy @btswillfuckyouup

It was so rare that you’d be granted two days off in a row. You’d been working so much lately that you felt blessed to have a day off period. And since you’d already promised to spend one of those days with your beloved boyfriend Yoongi, you’d decided to spend the other relaxing with a bit of retail therapy. With all the work you’d been doing you certainly had the money for it, and it wasn’t like you got to shop very often.

Seoul had so many nice shopping districts and you had been to a lot of them, but there was one that you hadn’t gone to yet, and after spending most of the morning and afternoon there you decided it was your favorite so far. You were so enthralled with the experience, in fact, that you didn’t notice the darkening skies.

You stepped out of the makeup shop with yet another shopping bag in your hands when a raindrop landed square on your nose. You looked up and noticed the dark, rolling clouds as yet another raindrop fell on your cheek. The wind was picking up, and the rain was coming down much more steadily now– and here you were out in the middle of Seoul, arms weighed down with shopping bags and no umbrella.
