oddbucky: Holy water cannot help you now, thou…

oddbucky:

Holy water cannot help you now, thousand  a r m i e s  couldn’t keep me out. I don’t want your  m o n e y, I don’t want your  c r o w n. See I’ve come to burn your  k i n g d o m  down. Holy water cannot help you now. See I’ve come to burn your  k i n g d o m  down and no rivers and no lakes can put the  f i r e  out. I’m gonna raise the stakes, I’m gonna  s m o k e  you out. And now all your  l o v e  will be exorcised and we will find your  s a i n t s  to be canonized. And it’s an even song. It’s a melody, it’s a  b a t t l e  c r y, it’s a symphony. They can keep me out, until I tear the walls, until I save your  h e a r t  and take your  s o u l. For what has been done cannot be undone. In the evil’s  h e a r t. In the evil’s  s o u l.

Regular

In the LOTR soundtrack the Elves are always represented by female vocalists/choirs while dwarves are represented by male vocalists/choirs (One example: The Elven Rivendell theme versus the Dwarvish Moria theme)

This rule also applies to the end credits songs!

The Hobbit focuses on Dwarven culture, which is why its end credit songs (Song of the Lonely Mountain, I See Fire, The Last Goodbye) all have male vocalists. LOTR puts a heavier emphasis on Elven culture, which is why its end credit songs (May it Be, Gollum’s Song, Into the West) all have female vocalists

Tauriel… You cannot be her. She is far away. She is far, far away from me. She walks in starlight in another world. It was just a dream. Do you think she could’ve loved me?

But when King Elessar gave up his life, Legolas followed at last the desire of his heart and sailed over Sea. We have heard tell that Legolas took Gimli Glóin’s son with him because of their great friendship, greater than any that has been between Elf and Dwarf.

I’m glad you’re here. I wish to part from you in friendship. No. You’re not going anywhere, Thorin. You’re going to live.
