As you may or may not know, I am going to be in Northern Ireland until January, so I started a blog for people to follow where I have gone and where I plan to go.
I’m including the link for my trip to the Giant’s Causeway. I’d love it if you could read and review!
Keep your chin up, someday there will be happiness again.
so in LOTR’s appendices it says that legolas eventually builds a boat and takes gimli across the seas and into the west, the gray havens. you know, the place arwen isn’t allowed to go because she’s in love with a human dude bUT LEGOLAS (AKA ‘YOU LITTLE SHIT’) JUST SAYS “FUCK IT” AND SNEAKS GIMLI INTO THE GODDAMN UNDYING LANDS LIKE CONTRABAND TWIZZLERS INTO A MOVIE THEATER
best literary analysis ever
i know it’s a lot less ~meaningful and tragic~ (aka sexist as fuck punishing a woman for falling in love) but in my headcanon arwen does this for aragorn too
"no excuse u this is mine i worked hard for it and i’m not giving it up after only like fifty years what are you new"
cue aragorn arwen legolas gimli frodo and sam having hella adventures running jumping climbing trees in the undying lands and all the elves being like MITHRANDIR WILL YOU HANDLE YOUR PPL
gandalf smoking his pipe with bilbo with his feet up like “nope shan’t”
I know it’s not that important, but I do feel I should point out that the Undying Lands don’t work like that. If you’re mortal (i.e. Bilbo, Frodo, Sam, Gimli) you’re still going to die. They’re only called the Undying Lands because immortal races live there.
I read somewhere, I think it was a letter of Christopher Tolkien’s but I can’t remember, that said the Grey Haven were sort of just a halfway point for the hobbits because they had been through so much they deserved a peaceful end before passing on. I know that’s sort of a buzzkill way of looking at things, but I think it’s kind of sweet.
