Well Met Dwarflings!!

Well Met Dwarflings!!


How fairest you all? My, my long has it been since I've posted last? Far too long, methinks! But alas, Dis has left me in charge of the mountain while she is away, Lil' Kili accompanied her, leaving me quite on my own with only my wolf pups to keep me company.
Uncle Thorin and Fili are both away at the moment as well.
But I'm here, and I thought I would take a minute to disband some ugly rumors that I've seen floating around..well..everywhere! No doubt the result of some orc mischief! 

It's gone viral that Fili, Uncle Thorin, and I have all died.....yes, you've all heard it, seen it on the news, read it in the newspaper. But it's not true I tell you, I'm here to vouch for that. We are alive and well, and don't you dare let those nasty orcies convince you otherwise! I mean honestly...what would we all do if these rumors were actually true? I bet the shameful orcies started this rumor to dismantle our beloved fans. Hmmm..yes, I think I'm right. When Uncle finds out about this he'll be furious mad...probably go on a rampage and kill a few hundred orcs and maybe a cave troll. He does have his temper tantrums on occasion, and I'm willing to bet this rumor will set him off...again.

So take heart my beloved fans! And do not be distraught any longer. 
 You shall hear again from me very soon...

Tookish Tag

Tookish Tag

I was nominated by the lovely Reyna Nicole  Thank you dearie! I muchly enjoyed filling this out!

Tag rules:

~ Link back to the blogger who nominated you.
~ Answer questions.
~ Tag some of your own fellow Tolkienights!

  1.  How were you first introduced to LotR/TH and was it love at first sight/read? 
I didn't read the books until I was older, but we grew up watching Lord of The Rings, and all of my siblings (at that time) were avid Tolkien fans. So yes, I've been a Tolkien fan for ever since I can remember!

2.  If you could meet the actors who portray the characters in the movies, would you? 

Absolutely! At the top of my list would be Richard Armitage, Dean O'Gorman, and Aidan Turner. But I would also dearly like to meet Evangeline Lilly, Graham McTavish and others.

3.  What is your favorite credit song from LotR/TH?

Oh goodness! You cannot seriously be asking me this question!!! There is no way I can decide! Probably...maybe?..The Last Goodbye, but I adore the others all so much! Is there an "All" choice??

4.  The Lord of the Rings or The Hobbit - which is your favorite?  *evil laugh*  (And no, you don't actually have to decide.  I'm merciful like that. *magnanimous smile*) 

I love them both, muchly. ;)

5.  Who is your favorite all-around character? 

My first ever crush was Aragorn, so if you would have asked me this several years ago this could have been easy, but now that Thorin, Fili, and Kili are (or shall I say "were" *violent sobs*) in existence...yeah no. I'd have to say all four of them. :D

6.  What is your opinion on Boromir? 

Boromir is a very misunderstood character, in my opinion. His bravery. loyalty to his people, and love for the halflings, gives much to his credit. His character is impeccable. He is tempted by the ring yes, but let us remember he IS human, and nobody is perfect. I think people could find somebody else much beter (*ahem* like his father for instance *ahem*) to nitpick on, rather than dear, faithful Boromir.

7.  How many times have you watched the movies/read the books? 

I've read The Hobbit a handful of times, The Fellowship of The Ring once, then I've read The Two Towers halfway through. Yes, it's true! Please don't disown me!! I've watched LOTR too many times to count, and likewise with TH.

8.  What book is your favorite? 

The Hobbit

9.  Who is your favorite female character (other than your answer to question #5)? 


10.  Who is your favorite male character (other than your answer to question #5)? 

Somebody else who has always been a favorite (besides the above gentlemen..err..dwarves..) is Eomer.

11.  Which of the movies, in your opinion, has the bes
t ending?

Return of The King.

Thanks again for the nomination Reyna darling!!

#OneLastTime Q&A

#OneLastTime Q&A

I was tagged by the lovely miss Sarah , thank you dearie!

The Rules

1. You Must be tagged to take the Q&A quiz

2. You must tag(notify)at least three other bloggers(or whatever they are on)for this Q&A

3. You must answer the following questions to the best of your ability

4. You must have seen The Battle of the Five Armies to be tagged/take the quiz

(don't read unless you have seen the movie; there will be *SPOILERS*)
 Questions 1. Tell your story of how you came to see the movie(s) or got into Tolkien in the first place.
We had grown up reading and loving Tolkien's books, and when the movies started coming out, we naturally loved those too. I can remember watching them when I was very little. So I've been a 'into' them since childhood.
2. Who are your three favorite characters in the Hobbit Trilogy? Fili, Kili, and Thorin.  

3. Did you cry in the Battle of the Five Armies, and if so, which scene(s) and what type(sniffling, sobbing, choke-crying)?  Are you kidding me???!!! I teared up through the entire movie! YES I CRIED! I bawled, sobbed, wailed, and so forth. My eyes started to tear up when Dwalin goes in to Thorin, and tells him "He cannot see what he has become." I started getting very upset when Fili and Kili went into the tower on Ravenhill, I knew something was fixing to happen. I started sobbing when Azog drug Fili out, and never stopped sobbing until the credits ended. And yes, I stayed in the theater until the credits were completely over.  
4. Were the deaths compelling to you, and if so, who's? Fili's was the most heart breaking to me (he's my baby!! <3<3<3<3). He protected Kili from danger in the tower, and instead put his life on the line, and then he died in view of his brother, uncle, adopted uncle (Dwalin), and dear little Bilbo. It crushed me utterly and completely. Kili dying to protect Tauriel was sweet, but I still haven't forgiven Tauriel all the way for being in the movie (due to her character's absence from the book), but it was such a tragic death. The tears that rolled down Kili's cheek, as he thought about the life with Tauriel he could never have, was too much! I died right alongside him! Such a sad, heartbreaking moment. Thorin's battle with Azog was interesting. I could have done without Thorin following Azog under the ice, I screamed internally at the movie screen during that whole part. And when Azog's blade pierced Thorin's chest..I choked by tears. Actually no. I lied. I let them all out and bawled somemore, because apparently Peter Jackson enjoys seeing his (female) audience bawl. But anyway..yes all three deaths were tragic, but Fili's was the most tragic in my opinion.  
5. Over all, were you satisfied with the movie itself?
Most defiantly. It was by far the best (and saddest) of them all.

6. Describe the movie in one word.
