Sam reading Frodo’s writing

“An angry Ent
is terrifying. Their fingers, and their toes, just freeze on to rock; and
they tear it up like bread-crust”

Sam: You have to stop writing when you’re hungry, Mr. Frodo. Have a snack and then get back to it. 


*frodo and sam are lying on a rock as lava flows next to them*

frodo: sam, i need you to do me a favor. tell elrond that i destroyed the ring. dont mention gollum.

sam: what about your missing finger, sir?

frodo: oh jeez, i dont know. say i stuck it in the lava.

sam: why would you do that?

frodo: we’re hobbit, we’ve never seen lava before. maybe i thought it was okay to touch. 


“Don’t adventures ever have an end? I suppose not. Someone else always has to carry on the story”

Frodo: *many years after the quest, with PTSD* hey i’d really love if the adventure ended now. That’d be fine with me. I no longer want to be part of this adventure. Just trying to be a normal Hobbit now. If my shoulder could stop hurting every year, that’d be great too. 


Tolkien: Even the smallest person can change the course of the future

Tolkien: People might not get the subtext of what I’m saying with that quote. 

Tolkien: Let me make the hero of my story literally like 2 and a half feet tall. 


“I am sorry,” said Frodo. “But I am frightened; and I do not feel
any pity for Gollum.”

“You have not seen him,” Gandalf broke in.

“Why, what does he look like?“ asked Frodo.

“Just hideous,“ said Gandalf. “Like an old chicken wing that fell on the floor a year ago and you just found. With like three hairs. You look at him and you just want to cry. How could he exist? I’m an angel and I have no idea how he was created.”


Frodo: Gollum deserves death!

Gandalf: Deserves it! I dare say he does. Many that live deserve death and some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them? Then do not be so eager to deal out death in judgement. For even the wise cannot see all ends.

Frodo: So you shouldn’t kill someone because you could use them sometime in the future?

Gandalf: Yup! I learned that from my friend Dumbledore. What a smart guy.


Frodo began to feel restless, and the old paths seemed too well-trodden. He looked at maps, and wondered what lay beyond their edges: but Tolkien weirdly never drew any of those, so he couldn’t. 


The Ringbearers were granted access to Valinor because everyone on the island was bored out of their minds and they hoped bringing in some new people would liven things up a bit. 


Lord of the Rings/Coco crossover where Frodo learns at the last minute that Gollum was actually his uncle all along. 


Frodo: I am glad you are here with me. Here at the end of all things, Sam.

Me: There’s, like, 100 more pages in this book, what the hell?
