LotR Alphabet - K for King
All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.

"Sam looked at him and wept in his heart, but no tears came to his dry and stinging eyes. ‘I said I’d carry him, if it broke my back,’ he muttered, ‘and I will!’
'Come, Mr. Frodo!' he cried. 'I can't carry it for you, but I can carry you and it as well. So up you get! Come on, Mr. Frodo dear! Sam will give you a ride. Just tell him where to go, and he'll go.'
As Frodo clung upon his back, arms loosely about his neck, legs clasped firmly under is arms, Sam staggered to his feet; and then to his amazement he felt the burden light. He had feared that he would have barely strength to lift his master alone, and beyond that he had expected to share in the dreadful dragging weight of the accursed Ring. But it was not so. Whether because Frodo was so worn by his long pains, wound of knife, and venomous sting, and sorrow, fear and homeless wandering, or because some gift of final strength was given to him, Sam lifted Frodo with no more difficulty than if he were carrying a hobbit-child pig-a-back in some romp on the lawns or hayfields of the Shire. He took a deep breath and started off.” - The Return of the King, J. R. R. Tolkien.

I think we’ve seen snippets of this more relaxed, cheeky armitoots creeping out during dos promo so it was great to see it in more than just a 5 minute Hobbit promo interview. Was it as in-depth or as informative as I hoped it’d be? No, but I think unless someone quite rooted in the fandom gets the opportunity to interview him and ask the questions we actually want to hear, we shouldn’t really expect anything more.
Strange as it all was, it was refreshing to see lengthy new material and it was all just a bit of a laugh. Cringe-inducing as it was at times, The Anglophile Channel is clearly a small organization so they did the best with the info and (perhaps limited) resources they had, so I suppose kudos to them is in order.
PS I’ve got a good few anons on the subject tonight and while I agree with most of you, I’m far too exhausted to host what could potentially turn into a catty debate by publishing them so I’m leaving them unanswered for now, but by all means please feel free to drop by and chat with me off-anon. I promise not to publish anything unless you want me to.
ok but can we all make a blood pact or something to never ever speak of that slow motion chair racing montage with the melancholic piano music please
