The forest is calling my name
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.

“Such is the nature of evil. Out there in the vast ignorance of the world it festers and spreads. A shadow that grows in the dark.”

But there was in Thranduil’s heart a still deeper shadow. He had seen the horror of Mordor
and could not forget it. If ever he looked south its memory dimmed the
light of the Sun, and though he knew that it was now broken and deserted
and under the vigilance of the Kings of Men, fear spoke in his heart
that it was not conquered for ever; it would arise again.
