"Hey, Frodo. It’s me. Gandalf. I’m not dead. Call me back when you get this."
"Frodo: Aragorn, why aren’t Merry and Pippin answering my texts?
Aragorn: They got captured by Uruk hai. Can’t text. Tracking them.
Frodo: Oh no! Call when you find them.
Aragorn: Got ‘em….
Today in Middle-Earth: Frodo and Sam finally reach Sauron’s Road in Mount Doom (March 25th, 3019 T.A.)
‘Now for it! Now for the last gasp!’ said Sam as he struggled to his feet. He bent over Frodo, rousing him gently. Frodo groaned; but with a great effort of will he staggered up; and then he fell upon his knees again. He raised his eyes with difficulty to the dark slopes of Mount Doom towering above him, and then pitifully he began to crawl forward on his hands.
Sam looked at him and wept in his heart, but no tears came to his dry and stinging eyes. ‘I said I’d carry him, if it broke my back,’ he muttered, ‘and I will!’
‘Come, Mr. Frodo!’ he cried. ‘I can’t carry it for you, but I can carry you and it as well. So up you get! Come on, Mr. Frodo dear! Sam will give you a ride. Just tell him where to go, and he’ll go.’
In western lands beneath the Sun
the flowers may rise in Spring,
the trees may bud, the waters run,
the merry finches sing.
Or there maybe ‘tis cloudless night
and swaying beeches bear
the Elven-stars as jewels white
amid their branching hair.
Though here at journey’s end I lie
in darkness buried deep,
beyond all towers strong and high,
beyond all mountains steep,
above all shadows rides the Sun
and Stars for ever dwell:
I will not say the Day is done,
nor bid the Stars farewell.

"Hi! Nob!", he shouted. "Where are you, you woolly-footed slow-coach? Nob!"
"Coming, Sir! Coming!"
A cheery-looking Hobbit bobbed out of a door, and seeing the travellers, stopped short and stared at them with great interest.
fact: Nob is one of my favorite minor characters in literature, ever, and i don’t even know why. i just like him. whatever. hobbits are awesome.
if i actually giggle out loud like a frigging lunatic, that means i have to reblog whatever it is
i don’t make the rules
just a reminder that these are a thing, and i make them. just for you. they’re name patches, in elvish script and dwarvish runes. you can find more info if you click the link and visit my etsy store. coupon code: AndEspeciallyThorin for 10% off!
they don’t have to be names. i’ll basically do anything you want. i’ll embroider naughty words in elvish if you want me to. whatever floats your boat.
i do plenty of custom stuff, and my prices are reasonable, so talk to me!
So. Here’s the thing. i, like most hardcore nerds, own all three extended edition dvds of the LoTR movie trilogy. But i still have a 2-disc widescreen version of Fellowship of the Ring from before the extended dvds came out. I tried to list it on amazon.com to sell, but too many assholes tried selling other shit and passing it off as LoTR, and ruined it for the rest of us, so they don’t let you sell LoTR dvds anymore.
If anyone is interested in it, I’ll give it to you for just the shipping cost plus a little extra for packaging materials. those padded envelopes aren’t free, you know. it’ll ship from NY, and I’ll send it anywhere you’re willing to pay postage for. it could potentially be really cheap because media mail isn’t that expensive.
message me if you’re interested.
as you can see, it’s mint. no scratches, no nothing. the case is shiny and beautiful and the discs are like friggin’ mirrors. THIS BABY CAN BE YOURS.
