granted i havent read lotr since i was 13 but the way legolas joins the fellowship always cracks me up, like hes literally a prince but they sent him as a messenger to basically tell the council like "whoopsiedoodles we fucked up and gollum is gone, that's what you get for entrusting him to the party elves of mirkwood you know how we get" and he feels SO bad he joins this super deadly quest like imagine you're thranduil and you're like "hey son can you go to elrond's house and tell him we fucked up royally" and your son is like sure pops can do but then you don't hear from him for like two months so you call elrond like hey e-dog what's good have you seen my son. and elrond is like. well i dont know how to tell you this but he went on a homoerotic voyage to the most dangerous place on earth. id be so mad
Pitch: Muppet Lord of the Rings. Miss Piggy as Eowyn. Imagine her just throwing herself at a human man playing Aragorn. Imagine her defeating the Witch-King of Angmar by going “HI-YA!” and karate chopping him.
so my boyfriend doesn't know a lot about lord of the rings and was asking why it was so hard to destroy the ring and I said it corrupted the ringbearers and made them evil and even proximity to the ring can turn you evil as it did briefly with boromir and after some careful thought he decided that the nine members of the fellowship should each have a super long string attached to the ring and they could drag it behind them from really far so it won't affect them and make Legolas always watch it with his elf eyes to make sure it's okay back there and like ... that might work??? Did he solve it??? I'm so mad.
I could actually write an essay defending Frodo Baggins as a character and why he’s an exceptional and profound protagonist, but nothing can sum up my feelings better than this person on pinterest who said, “he is a hero and a polite little dude, what more could you want?”
