AU MEME » LOTR as a dark & violent thriller » “The true soldier fights not because he hates what is in front of him, but because he loves what is behind him.”
How would you call a city infected by carcinogenic and ambitious men, feeding off the strength of its citizens, weakening them slowly by taking away jobs, peace, dreams and hope? A city dying, mirroring the living dead that inhabited its streets.? A city so corrupted that its only prerogative is its own survival and self perpetuation? A city in the hands -and claws- of a rotten soul?

I always felt like the elves were never given enough credit. They played a huge part in the story but were never fully appreciated by the other dwarves and humans.

I really miss Elladan and Elrohir from the LotR movies. I still hope that they’ll show up in the remaining parts of the Hobbit.
Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow, if I can,
Pursuing it with eager feet,
Until it joins some larger way
Where many paths and errands meet.
And whither then? I cannot say.

LOTR ALPHABET » the Istari
“The Istari bore the forms of old Men, although they were vigorous and aged very slowly. They possessed great skill of body and mind; their powers were focused through their staffs. Each of the Istari had his own color and grade within the Order. Saruman the White was the eldest and Gandalf the Grey second. The other Istari were Radagast the Brown and the Blue Wizards, who dwelt far in the east.”
