Gimli: You strike me as a woman who has never been satisfied.

Galadriel: I’m sure I don’t know what you mean. You forget yourself.

Gimli: Tell me, Legolas, why did I come on this Quest? Little did I know where the chief peril lay! Truly Elrond spoke, saying that we could not foresee what we might meet upon our road. Torment in the dark was the danger that I feared, and it did not hold me back. But I would have never come, had I known the danger of light and joy.

Legolas: smh you are such a drama queen. She’s pretty, okay? Calm down a bit.

While wandering around Galadriel’s lembas factory, Frodo and Sam drank some elven Fizzy Lifting Drink. Galadriel was furious at them until Frodo offered her the one ring and then it turned out that Frodo won Lothlorien.

Sam: but in the end, it’s only a passing thing…this shadow. Even darkness must pass.

Galadriel: we’re fighting the long defeat because Middle Earth is constantly getting worse and eventually I’m just gonna ditch this place forever.

Reading the Silmarillion, the elves seem so active and full of life.They’re always doing things. When you get to the Lord of the Rings, they just seem so tired. Elrond holds a meeting and then he’s out. Galadriel has some guests stay with her. They’re so done. They just wanna leave.

What would have happened if Galadriel passed her test, but like 200 years later than she was supposed to. The ring is destroyed and all the other elves are gone and she finally decides to stop being a queen. Would someone have to just fetch her? 

Frodo: Lady Galadriel, what’s that on your hand?

Galadriel: Nenya.

Frodo: Nenya?

Galadriel: Nenya business.

The Unfinished Tales say that Galadriel was “a match for both the loremasters and the athletes of the Eldar” and what I’m saying is that Galadriel should have had a sweatband on or been dribbling a basketball while talking to Frodo or something like that, okay?
