lotrconfessions: In the extended version of the LoTR movies, when Éomer tells Éowyn that war is the province of men I was very disappointed, because as soon as he took his helmet off when he met Aragorn, Gimli and Legolas, I knew he was the perfect knight for me. But then in RotK when he finds her on the battlefield I could see why he’d told her that, it wasn’t because he thought she couldn’t fight but because he was too afraid of losing her.
lotrconfessions: As I adore family dynamics in books/tv/film, I find Tolkien’s portrayals of sibling, cousin, uncle + nephew/niece and father + son/daughter relationships some of the best in fiction, and that includes the bad relationships (I’m looking at you, Denethor) as well as the good/devoted ones the majority share. I am also looking forward to seeing how Peter Jackson chooses to portray Legolas and Thranduil’s relationship on screen.
Out of all the other fandoms I’m apart of, whether it’s movies, books, or something else, Lord Of The Rings has taught me two of the most important things in life: Always stick by your friends, and honor never dies.
