How many times am I allowed to reblog this before it gets weird?
Fun facts: Tolkien constructed this scene because he came out of Macbeth thinking that Shakespeare had missed a golden opportunity with the ”Be bloody, bold, and resolute; laugh to scorn the power of man, for none of woman born shall harm Macbeth” prophecy
Being letdown by Macbeth is apparently a significant factor in Tolkien’s writing because the Ent/Huorn attack on Isengard was the result of his disappointment that the whole “til Birnam Wood come to Dunsinane” thing was just some dudes holding sticks and not actual ambulatory trees.
so he basically took his favorite shakespeare headcanons and put them into his AU fic
Instead of rejecting guys by awkwardly telling them I’m not interested, I’m going to start telling them they can date me only if they bring me a Silmaril from Morgoth’s throne.
Á colë nin Silmarillë Moringoþo mahalmallo. Bear to me a Silmaril from Morgoth’s throne.(Or Moringotto for those who don’t keep þ.)
Thank you so much
I’m gettin’ reaaaal tired of finding these schmucks on my doorstep, trying to get my Silmarils off me to impress their dates. Dungeons are overflowing as it is, and the werewolves are starting to look a little rotund.
How about you tell them to, I don’t know, climb to the top of Taniquetil and steal Manwë’s knickers or something?
