I laugh whenever Merry and Pippin come onscreen, like
when Treebeard is walking with them, and he informs them
that he will now serenade them with another exhaustive
chant about the Ents' history, and Pippin just rolls his eyes
ever so slightly, then adjust himself to try and listen as
politely as possible. I laugh when, in BOTFA, Bilbo's gone
to "parlay" with Thranduil and Bard, bargaining with the
Archenstone and all, and Thranduil says, "If I'm not
mistaken, this is the halfling who stole [x number] of barrels from under my guards' noses." Bilbo does this adorable, awkward little pause and nose-wrinkle, then mumbles, "Er, yes. Sorry 'bout that."
I laugh when this awesomeness happens: "Alfrid." *Alfrid turns* "Your slip is showing."
I laugh when Aragorn runs up and bear-hugs Haldir, who's quite discomfited by such an action [it seems the Elves are slightly British in that regard. They only show affection to dogs and horses. (If you understood that reference…we should talk about your awesomeness.)].
I laugh when Tauriel is tending Kili in Laketown. (Sorry, but I do. A little, that is. I mean, really?)
I laugh when Gandalf catches Sam and thunders, "Samwise Gamgee, have you been eavesdropping?!" And then Sam is looking up at him, terrified: "Please, sir, I haven't been droppin' no eaves. I was just tendin' the hedgerow!" "Did you hear anything?" "No, leastwise, nothing important. That is, I heard something about a Ring and a Dark Lord and something about the end of the world."
I laugh when Bilbo does this: "I am a Baggins - *whimper* - of Bag End."
I laugh when Gandalf laughs at the end of The Return of the King just because his laugh is so joyful and infectious and mischievous.
Get the idea?:D
Day 10 prompt: Lord of the Rings character you relate to the most
Hmm. Good thought.
Obviously, I'd love to be identified with Arwen, but I'm not sure how much like her I actually am.
It's really strange, but I think I'm a strange conglomeration of the four hobbits in the Fellowship.
I think I have character traits from each of them, like Merry's mother-henning (he's sort of mother-hens his friends at times), Sam's goal to remain optimistic no matter what, Frodo's fear (though I'm by no means saying that that's his only trait), and Pippin's naiveté.
I know. Weird. But that's just what I'm thinking. My friends and family could tell you more accurately;)
Dawww, look at them little selves! Yes, they will always be little to me. Always.
