Elf guard: hey, did Thranduil do that thing where he dramatically reveals that his face is all burned up?
Thorin: yeah, it really took me by surprise.
Elf guard: get used to it, he does it during every conversation. I see that thing like 5 times a day.
Thorin: Have you ever heard the prophecy about what will happen when the world ends? It is said that a giant battle will occur, and the forces of good will defeat evil. Then all of the races will come together, and be made young and new. And we dwarves will help Aule to reshape the earth again.
Thranduil: *tearing up* that’s kind of beautiful
Thorin: anyways I’m going to tell Aule to just destroy this stupid woods and castle because they’re dumb and I hate you.
Thranduil: and now it’s not beautiful anymore.
“There is nothing like looking, if you want to find something. You certainly usually find something, if you look, but it is not always quite the something you were after.”
– Thorin, in the Hobbit, perfectly summarizing Sauron and Saruman’s actions in the Lord of the Rings.
Me: In your opinion, how much does the quote “If a man does not have sauce, then he is lost. But the same man can get lost in the sauce” represent the character of Thorin and his dragon sickness?
Professor: I have no idea what you’re talking about but I need you to stop
