If I was Eowyn and the Witch King said “No living man can hinder me” there is absolutely no way that I would think to reply with “But no living man am I! You look upon a woman.” It would probably be something super lame like “Well I’m here to try anyways!” There’s just no way that I would think that no living man means that I’m safe, or could kill him, or something.
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.
If Tolkien has written a sex scene any of his works, which characters would it have been with? Part of me feels like Faramir and Eowyn is the obvious choice, but I personally find Feanor the most passionate character in any of his works. Obviously the Hobbit isn’t really the right vehicle for that kind of scene, and I don’t think this is a good topic to talk about the Childred of Hurin. Anyways, class, my name is Mr. Cutler and I’ll be your language arts teacher this year.
Witch King: Come not between the Nazgûl and his prey! Or he will not slay thee in thy turn. He will bear thee away to the houses of lamentation, beyond all darkness, where thy flesh shall be devoured, and thy shriveled mind be left naked to the Lidless Eye.
Eowyn: What…what do you mean? What do you do to people there?
Witch King: We make them watch the extended editions, every day.
Eowyn: Extended editions of what?
Wotch King: The Hobbit Trilogy! Muahahahaha.
Elrond: You do not know the dangers that lie ahead of you on this quest.
Eowyn: I made you some stew.
Aragorn: Great, I’m starving.
