i often think about the fact that in the books, after the ring was destroyed, arwen gave frodo her necklace, and that he often clutched it and fidgeted with it as a sort of ring replacement before he left for the undying lands

Boromir’s death was not in vain
It occurred to me on my last readthrough of The Lord of the Rings that one of the reasons I always found Boromir’s death so tragic was because he failed to protect those that he cared for. He attempts to take the ring from Frodo, driving him away, and then is killed in defense of Merry and Pippin. It was all for nothing, his struggle with the darkness and shadow, and his final stand against the Uruk-hai. 
But really, I think that Boromir’s death achieved something very important. I always questioned why the Uruks settled for only taking Merry and Pippin. Surely Saruman knew the composition of the Fellowship, and would have told his captains that there were four hobbits. It stands to reason that they would have simply rounded up all four just to be safe. Yet they only take two, leaving Frodo and Sam to escape. I think the reason is actually quite simple.
The Uruks are selfish, loveless beings. They have no love for each other, or anything else. They would always opt to save their own skin if given the choice. To their eyes, this great man of Gondor was protecting something important, something very valuable, if he was willing to die for its safety. Boromir’s death insured Frodo’s escape, because the Uruks could not fathom anyone giving their life to defend something so trivial as a friend. It was clear to them beyond a shadow of a doubt that these were the hobbits that their master wanted, and they had no need to look farther. Boromir sealed this with his life. He may not have saved Merry and Pippin, but his death was not in vain.

I weary of ice-cold LotR takes that focus on so-called plot holes. You fools. You nincompoops. Do you think there needs to be an in-universe reason that the Valar didn't just pop over to Middle Earth and solve everyone's problems?
You wanna know why god didn't just fix everything in the Lord of the Rings?
It's because when you huddle in the mud of the trenches there is no god. When shells rain around you screaming louder than the men dying on either side, there is no god. When the Jews die and burn in the camps, there is no god.
Tolkien didn't want a story where God shows up to save you to reward your faith. Tolkien wanted a story where He doesn't. He wanted a story about what saves you from lying down in the mud and blood and dying. It's someone you can't see singing in the darkness. It's a caress from a friend, the memory of home, the sight of a star through the smoke that's blocked out the light for weeks.
He wrote what he knew. And what he knew was why people climb from the trenches and charge into land-mines and barbed wire. He knew why people would fight on the beaches, fight in the streets and the fields, fight in the hills.
A man who knows those things doesn't need to give anyone a reason why God doesn't just solve all your problems.

The homoerotic subtext of lotr/the hobbit is all very well and good, but I would also like to point out, since this isn’t talked about very often, that these books are, in fact, canonically very queer, considering that asexuality/aromanticism run rampant in them

Tom Bombadil wouldn't get so much hate if we only explored the possibilities !
Guy's been around forever!
Imagine a pissed off, ready to take down Satan Fëanor setting foot in ME for the first time, asking for address from the first guy they see, & the guy just won't stop performing musical numbers to give them a clear answer ! (Meanwhile Maglor criticises the quality of his music while others look at him like "THIS is your biggest issue right now?")
Or Melian & Thingol staring lovingly at each other for centuries, suddenly hearing someone singing & immediately get pulled out of whatever psychic thing they had going on & then try to ignore him & go back to the said psychic thing but he comes back again & again every five minutes & they huff & side eye & he's like "don't mind me!" & goes away until he comes back signing in ten minutes
Or after Morgoth V Fingolfin epic battle when the dust & loud sounds are gone there is a crunch sound & Tom Bombadil is there eating crisps & enjoying the show
Or Maglor roaming the beaches singing mournfully getting interrupted by Tom Bombadil singing that messes up his rythm & so Maglor starts passive-aggressively singing louder
The possibilities are endless !
