I don’t think writers realize that “strong female character” means “well-written female character” and not “female character who punches stuff and shoots stuff”.

I mean, it’s totally fine if she does do those things. I’m all about physical strength too, but yeah, well-written, fully-fleshed female characters are what I like to see.

"And then we’ll use Pippin’s song, and we’ll crush their souls for good"
— Peter Jackson, probably (via oakenwitch)

I just realized that I was twelve when Fellowship of the Ring was in theaters. I'll be 25 when BOFA airs. Mind. Blow. Also, I could hardly not cry during the Return of the King, and I know for sure I'll cry my soul out during BOFA.

leeeeeeeeeegooooooooolaaaaaaaaas:

Holy crap I just did the math and I was nine when I saw FotR! Time really flies, huh? And hey, no shame in crying. I feel like BoFA will be ten times sadder than RotK. :’(

And now I feel super old. I was 16 when FOTR came out. And 18 when ROTK did. And I cried like a baby.

I’ll be 29. And I will cry. It really is the end this time.

That trailer,  man. Just a teaser. A mere glimpse. But it’s a sign of the ending.

And Pippin’s singing made me want to cry. It’s so perfect and links everything back (in the saddest of ways).

I remember sitting through the credits of Return of the King when I saw it in theaters on opening night. I sat and I cried. Because it was over.

Then, we had another chance. Another trilogy. And it too is coming to an end.

Far more sadly than the last….

Is Tom Bombadil a Maia!?! I have wondered long (many have) exactly who and what is Tom. He has no father, and is reeeeeeaaaally old. He has power and dominion over nature. What do you think?

http://km-515.livejournal.com/1042.html

This is something I found very interesting. And rather frightening. I like Tom though (as you know.)

Yes. Yes he is. Gandalf and Sauron are also Maia. So are all wizards. All came from the Undying Lands by ship at the beginning of the Third Age. So now you know.

It’s actually completely unknown whether or not he’s actually a Maia. One can only speculate. With his obvious powers he certainly doesn’t fit into the categories of Men, Elves, Dwarves or Hobbits (or any other category at all.)

A fun theory I enjoy is that he’s the embodiment of the Music of the Ainur.

Anyhow Tolkien himself said it was a mystery and wished it to remain so.
