In order to distract Sauron, Gandalf and Aragorn had a bunch of op-eds published in the New Middle Earth Times about how they were gonna kick his ass on the battlefield, and even though Sauron said he never read that newspaper it was obvious that he did, and all of this helped Frodo sneak undetected into Mordor.
Thus Aragorn for the first time in the full light of day beheld Éowyn, Lady of Rohan, and thought her fair, fair and cold, like a morning of pale spring that is not yet come to womanhood. But not in a romantic sense or anything, he was just super aware of her, being all fair. And she was now suddenly aware of him: tall heir of kings, wise with many winters, greycloaked, hiding a power that yet she felt. But again, it was super platonic, just a lot of awareness going around.
Not sure why people are so interested in Aragorn’s tax policy when I am infinitely more interested in Sauron’s tax policy had he won the war.
Balrog: wraps whip around Gandalf’s knees
Gandalf: *moans* harder
“Deep roots are not reached by the frost“ is a reference to getting frosted tips in your hair, because the highlights are just at the tips and don’t reach the roots. This leads me to believe that this part of the poem is describing Aragorn’s hair.
Me to my laptop, which I’ve named Aragorn: “I would rather spend one lifetime with you, than face all the ages of this world alone”
On one hand, Aragorn was the true king and Denethor was the steward. But Aragorn lived to an old age and was kinda boring, and Denethor chose the hour of his death by falling from a tower while on fire. So which one really carried on the dramatic spirit of Numenor?
In a hard to find but crucial Fellowship deleted scene, Boromir pulls a few dumbbells out of his sack and begins doing bicep curls in front of Aragorn near the doors of Moria.
