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?

You are an elven queen


Taking the One Ring

Lembas doesn’t have any magic in it, it’s just like, really good baked bread. Like sourdough or something. Have you ever had homemade sourdough, it’s so refreshing. A few bites and you just feel more connected to earth, to nature, to your own self. There’s also probably rosemary in it, that stuff is awesome in bread. Seems like something Galadriel would add. 

Galadriel: I grant you all this lembas. A single bite will fill a man for a day’s journey. 

Pippin: about this lembas – is it more a magic thing, or is there some ingredient in it that’s so filling?

Galadriel: It’s more of a magic thing, i guess. 

Pippin: cool. so can you magic me up some bacon instead? I’ll take magic bacon that keeps me full over some bread, please. 

Merry: me too, thanks. 

Boromir: Did I just hear something about magic bacon?
