MEMM Days 13 & 14

Day 13 prompt:  Favorite battle

The last one.  The culminating battle for Middle-earth, fought on the plains of Mordor under the shadow of Barad-dûr.

Its beauty is breathtaking.  I love all of it so completely - the acting, the dialogue, the music, the emotion - everything.




Day 14 prompt:  Lord of the Rings character you understand the least

Oh, boy, oh, boy…

Should I really go into it?  The volcanic anger will spew…

No.  I can talk about this little worm in a rational, controlled way.  I can.  Really.

The character from LotR whom I least understand is without a doubt Denethor.  The prodigious idiocy of his mind and the warped, twisted nature of his heart will forever be mysteries to me - mysteries of which depths I have no desire to plumb.


P.S. Happy Valentine's Day, one and all!:D

  1. Interesting! I think I get Denethor pretty well -- I despise him, but I understand why he is what he is. I have't figured out my own answer to that prompt yet :-o

    1. Hahaha, yes--as a fierce lover of Faramir, I can't say the same. I don't understand it. I get that he (in some ways) blames Faramir for his wife's death, and that he has a thirst for power and he feels he has been wronged, but…nope. Still a mystery;) I had to think what my answer would be for a while, too! Eventually I settled on Denethor for…well, for the above reasons. But it took me a while!

  2. I always love that "For Frodo" Aragorn says before he takes off. And that it's Merry and Pippin who follow immediately, ahead of anyone else. And the eagles!
