okay so my dad finally found his copy of the two towers and oh mY GOD IT LOOKS LIKE A ROMANCE NOVEL I CAN’T STOP LAUGHINFG WHENEVER I SEE IT
LOO K AT LEGOLAS’ MULLET CZKLANXNKSKAHX AND GIMLI’S JUST STARIUNG INTO THE DISTANCE
OH THERE IT IS, THIS IS THE COVER I KEEP GOING ON AND ON ABOUT!! I used to own this exact copy, I have no idea where it went to, and when I first read the book I was constantly flipping it over going “wow okay so the INSIDE of this book is my favorite thing ever but what the FREAK IS GOING ON ON THIS COVER”. Let romance cover Legolas softly caress your stony heart into loving him, Gimli, because he’ll never give up.
Haaaah, I have this paperback! The thing that always got me about it was Legolas’ terrible wig. WIIIIIIG.
…okay that’s it. go on without me, tumblr, it’s too much, i’ve fallen and i don’t think i even want to get up
Some of scenes from ‘The Desolation of Smaug’

Don’t worry honey, you’ll grow into it - oh wait…
YOU GO SIT IN THE CORNER AND THINK ABOUT WHAT YOU JUST DID
IT GOT WORSE
my headcanon here is that legolas is just BARELY visibly holding it together
since canon tells us that mirkwood elves like to party and are fully capable of passing out from drunk
so legolas is using EVERYTHING HE HAS to fuck with gimli and pretend he hasn’t a clue what it’s like to be affected by alcohol
while inside he’s all ‘sdkla;hgsj you can do this leggles you can do this’
‘don’t think about that time you blacked out from dorwinion wine while naked in the middle of an impromptu archery contest’
‘and all your friends drew orc penises on your face’‘and when you woke up you were halfway to dale without a clue as to how you got there’
‘And especially don’t think about that time you drank so much that the dwarves you were supposed to be watching escaped in the empty barrels of wine.’
‘Dad never let me hear the end of that one’
Richard Armitage, as clueless as his character.
And Martin, trying to contain himself. XD
Always reblog <3
For those who have never heard J.R.R. Tolkien sing, voilà!
“That’s what Bilbo Baggins hates!” sung by the legend himself.
This is awesome!
‘I still had to persuade Thorin to take [Bilbo]. There were many difficulties on the road afterwards, but for me this was the most difficult part of the whole affair. Though I argued with him far into the night after Bilbo had retired, it was not finally settled until early the next morning.
‘Thorin was contemptuous and suspicious. “He is soft,” he snorted. “Soft as the mud of his Shire, and silly. His mother died too soon. You are playing some crooked game of your own, Master Gandalf. I am sure that you have other purposes than helping me.”
‘“You are quite right,” I said. “If I had no other purposes I should not be helping you at all. Great as your affairs may seem to you, they are only a small strand in a great web. I am concerned with many strands. But that should make my advice more weighty, not less.” I spoke at last with great heat. “Listen to me, Thorin Oakenshield!” I said. “If this hobbit goes with you, you will succeed. If not, you will fail. A foresight is on me, and I am warning you.”
‘“I know your fame,” Thorin answered. “I hope it is merited. But this foolish business of your hobbit makes me wonder whether it is foresight that is on you, and you are not crazed rather than foreseeing. So many cares may have disordered your wits.”
‘“They have certainly been enough to do so,” I said. “And among them I find most exasperating a proud Dwarf who seeks advice from me (without claim on me that I know of), and then rewards me with insolence. Go your own ways, Thorin Oakenshield, if you will. But if you flout my advice, you will walk to disaster. And you will get neither counsel nor aid from me again until the Shadow falls on you. And curb your pride and your greed, or you will fall at the end of whatever path you take, though your hands be full of gold.”
‘He blenched a little at that; but his eyes smouldered. “Do not threaten me!” he said. “I will use my own judgement in this matter, as in all that concerns me.”
‘“Do so, then!” I said. “I can say no more—unless it is this: I do not give my love or trust lightly, Thorin, but I am fond of this hobbit, and wish him well. Treat him well, and you shall have my friendship to the end of your days.”
‘I said that without hope of persuading him; but I could have said nothing better. Dwarves understand devotion to friends and gratitude to those who help them. “Very well,” Thorin said at last after a silence. “He shall set out with my company, if he dares (which I doubt). But if you insist on burdening me with him, you must come too and look after your darling.”
‘“Good!” I answered. “I will come, and stay with you as long as I can: at least until you have discovered his worth.”’
