the top 10 gayest lines in the lord of the rings, ranked
10. “the last pages are for you, sam”
alright this one is objectively incredibly gay but i put it at the top of the list bc it makes me sad & i resent that
9. “you can’t leave”
simple but powerful. sam is understandably upset that his boyfriend is leaving him forever. as before, at the top of the list bc it makes me cry
8. “sam…i’m glad you’re with me”
again, simple but powerful. this one is said under much happier circumstances, and there’s just so much feeling behind it. the love that frodo has for sam is palpable here, which is important to me bc sam is usually the more outwardly affectionate one between the two
7. “you left out one of the chief characters–samwise the brave. i want to hear more about sam…frodo wouldn’t have got far without sam”
this whole exchange is extremely gay, but the way that frodo pauses & looks at sam when he says this needs some special recognition
6. “now mr frodo, you shouldn’t make fun. i was being serious” “so was i”
i know that 7 & 6 are part of the same exchange but it’s so incredibly gay that i felt it needed to be split apart into two. again, the way that frodo looks at sam & smiles when he says “so was i” is very important
5. “‘don’t you lose him, samwise gamgee.’ and i don’t intend to”
it is important to note that sam says this after almost drowning in his attempt to prevent frodo from leaving without him. if that’s not true love, i don’t know what is
4. “i can’t carry it for you, but i can carry you”
one of the most iconic lines in lord of the rings regardless of your interpretation of their relationship, which is why it’s ranked so well on this list. sam finds it in himself to physically carry his boyfriend up the volcano, which shows some serious love & dedication on his part
3. “oh mr frodo, don’t go where i can’t follow”
this really brings home the fact that sam would go with frodo literally anywhere except in death. again this highlights his unwavering dedication, also his use of the formal “mr frodo” to the very end really kills me
2. “i’m glad to be with you, samwise gamgee, here at the end of all things”
this is very very close to being #1, and for good reason. the use of sam’s full name. the sentiment expressed here. the feeling with which he says it. need i say more
1. “it’s me, it’s your sam. don’t you know your sam?”
YOUR SAM. YOUR. SAM.
honorable mention: “you’re late.”
this didn’t go on the list bc neither frodo nor sam says it to the other, but i couldn’t make this post without acknowledging it. this line is literally so iconic & the smile that legolas & aragorn share here is painfully gay
i doodled a bit so a concept: serizawa katsuya has two loving parents
his mother went through some hard times with him during his time being all hikikomori’d up and miscalculated when she had been at her wits end, and his father couldn’t be there much due to his job and didn’t know how to connect with katsuya’s problems the rare times he was…. but after the biggest weights were lifted from their shoulders, they quickly snapped back into a close, happy family.
here they’re all super stoked about having bought katsuya a proper suit for the first time ever, and of their son getting a job that’s not a fucking cult bent on world domination. not pictured is their dog currently chewing katsuya’s shoes.
their names are aiko and ishi and y ea i did this mainly to think through stuff for the next chapter of shit-all. spoiler: they’re so good people they adopt reigen immediately.
I still find it pretty disgusting that everyone on that cast always supports each other’s charities and stuff, but almost NO ONE showed public support for any of Eliza’s TWO charity works, first the school and then Isla.
