Gandalf:  Into his heart the thought will
not enter that any will refuse it, that having the Ring we may seek
to destroy it. If we seek this, we shall put him out of reckoning. If we send the ring to the fire, we will totally…subvert his expectations! *Gandalf winks at camera*

Describing Lord of the Rings Characters Badly

Frodo: Must have done something really horrible in his past life. 

Sam: Makes your own friends look like cabbages.

Pippin: YOLO.

Merry: Also YOLO, but knows when to draw the line.

Gandalf: Salty AF; eats death for breakfast.

Aragorn: Will find an excuse to bring his heritage into anything and everything.

Boromir: Pin-cushion for orcs.

Legolas: *I’m sensing something*

Gimli: Has no filter.

Elrond: Makes a lot of good points. Too bad no one listens to him. 

Arwen: Has a literal death wish.

Galadriel: A bit cryptic, but all right once you get to know her. 

Saruman: “Knowledge is power”.

Gollum: Looks like a pale malnourished frog; has a bit of a dark side.

Éowyn: Middle-earth Mulan.

Faramir: Has daddy issues.

Denethor: Source of said daddy issues.


don’t need no aredhel runs away to ride this train


actually, the creator pronounces it “estë”


How am I supposed to reconcile this:

“Gandalf was shorter in stature than the other two; but his long white hair, his sweeping silver beard, and his broad shoulders, made him look like some wise king of ancient legend. In his aged face under great snowy brows his eyes were set like coals that could suddenly burst into fire.”

With this:

“But Gandalf looked at him from under long bushy eyebrows
that stuck out further than the brim of his shady hat.”

So Gandalf looks like a wise king of ancient legend, but with eyebrows that are longer than a shady hat? They have to be like 4 or 5 inches long, how am I supposed to picture him as a wise king with those things on his face?
