#sam gamgee

After the book release of Lord of the Rings, JRR Tolkien got a letter in March of 1956 from a man named Sam Gamgee. Mr Gamgee had never read LOTR, and admitted to not typically liking Fantasy, but said some of his friends had read it and told him about the character with the same name. Mr Gamgee was curious as to where Tolkien had gotten such a unique name for his character. Tolkien replied, answering the question about the origin of Samwise Gamgee’s name, and inquiring about the origins of this Mr Gamgee’s name, too.

Eventually, Tolkien sent Mr Gamgee a signed copy of all three volumes and Mr Gamgee replied that he’d received the books, saying “I can assure you that I have every intention if reading them.”

It’s finally finished, and yeah, It might’ve taken me two weeks, but I did get it done! I’ve definitely put quite a bit of work into this piece, and I’m really happy with it! I think it’d really be fun to do some more paintings with the other members of the fellowship, though for now I gotta take a break from painting for a bit lol

“It’s like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo, the ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger they were, and sometimes you didn’t want to know the end, because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened?

But in the end, it’s only a passing thing, this shadow. Even darkness must pass. A new day will come, and when the sun shines it will shine out the clearer. Those were the stories that stayed with you, that meant something, even if you were too small to understand why.

But I think, Mr. Frodo, I do understand. I know now. Folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back. Only they didn’t, because they were holding on to something…That there’s some good in this world, Mr. Frodo. And it’s worth fighting for.

Imagine the first half of the Lord of the Rings as a minivan vacation sitcom; I think Aragorn would be the angsty dad, Gandalf would be the bossy mom, Legolas would be the whiny teen sister, and Pippin would be the hyper kid no one can keep track of…

Legolas: Gandalf, Gimli’s crowding me!

Gimli: *pokes Legolas repeatedly* Oh, am I in your space? How about now?

Gandalf: FRODO PUT THAT DOWN PIPPIN GET BACK IN YOUR SEAT THIS MINUTE Yes, Sam, I see the pretty pony MERRY DON’T MAKE ME REACH BACK THERE I SWEAR WE WILL TURN THIS CAR AROUND

Aragorn: This is why we should have flown…

Frodo’s face was peaceful, the marks of fear and care had left it; but it looked old, old and beautiful, as if the chiseling of the shaping years was now revealed in many fine lines that had before been hidden, though the identity of the face was not changed. 

Not that Sam put it that way to himself. He shook his head, as if finding words useless, and murmured: “I love him. He’s like that, and sometimes it shines through, somehow. But I love him, whether or no.”

LIKE . 

has there ever been a purer soul than sam gamgee
