Author has written 5 stories for Lord of the Rings.I don't think I'll ever write anything that doesn't have anything to do with Lord of the Rings, so if you're looking for other stories, sorry! I write, because I love to write, and my stories will probably never be exactly historically correct and maybe even slightly AU at times, so please don't throw things at me!
Favourite Quotes, Statements, Moments, Etc in The Lord of the Rings:
THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING
Galadriel: And you, Frodo Baggins, I give you the light of Eärendil, our most beloved star. May it be a light for you, when all other lights go out.
Frodo: It has taken Boromir.
Aragorn: Where is the ring?
Frodo: Stay away!
Aragorn: Frodo! I swore to protect you.
Frodo: Can you protect me from yourself? Would you destroy it?
The Ring: Aragorn...Aragorn...Elessar...
Aragorn: I would have gone with you to the end...into the very fires of Mordor.
Frodo: I wish the ring had never come to me. I wish none of this had happened.
Gandalf: So do all who live to see such times, but that is not for them to decide. All you have to decide is what to do, with the time that is given to you.
Frodo: I will take it! I will take it! I will take the ring to Mordor, though, I do not know the way.
Gandalf: I will help you bear this burden, Frodo Baggins, as long as it is yours to bear.
Aragorn: If by my life or death, I can protect you, I will. You have my sword.
Legolas: And you have my bow.
Gimli: And my axe.
Boromir: You carry the fate of us all, little one, but if this is indeed the will of the counsel, then Gondor will see it done.
Sam: I made a promise, Mr. Frodo, a promise. Don't you leave him, Samwise Gamgee, and I don't mean to. I don't mean to...
Galadriel: Nadath nâ i moe cerich... (There is much you have yet to do)
Bilbo: I feel old, Gandalf. I know I don't look it, but I'm beginning to feel it in my heart. I feel...stretched. Like butter scraped over too much bread. I need a holiday, a very long holiday, and I don't expect I shall return. In fact I mean not to.
Bilbo: I thought up an ending for my book. "And he lived happily ever after, until the end of his days."
Gandalf: And he will.
Bilbo: Goodbye Gandalf.
Gandalf: Goodbye, dear Bilbo...until our next meeting.
Gandalf: BILBO BAGGINS! Do not take me for a conjuror of cheap tricks! I'm not trying to rob you!...I'm trying to help you.
THE TWO TOWERS
Gimli: What's happening out there?
Legolas: Shall I describe it to you, or would you like me to find you a box?
Frodo: I can't do this, Sam.
Sam: I know. It's all wrong. By rights we shouldn't even be here, but we are. It's like in those great stories, Mr. Frodo, the ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger they were. And sometimes, you didn't want to know the ending, because how could the ending be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad happened? But in the end, it's only a passing thing, this shadow. Even darkness must pass. A new day will come, and when the sun shines, it will shine out the clearer. Those are the stories that stayed with you, that meant something, even if you were too young to understand why. But, I think, Mr. Frodo, I do understand. I know now. Folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back, only they didn't. They kept going, because they were holding onto something.
Frodo: What are we holding onto, Sam?
Sam: That there's some good in this world, Mr. Frodo, and it's worth fighting for.
Aragorn: Give me your sword. What is your name?
Boy: Haleth, son of Hama, my lord. The men are saying we will not live out the night. They say that it is hopeless.
Aragorn: This is a good sword, Haleth, son of Hama. There is always hope.
Theoden: How is this possible?
Haldir: I bring word from Elrond of Rivendell. An alliance once existed between Elves and Men. Long ago, we fought and died together. We've come to honour that allegiance.
Aragorn: Mae govannen, Haldir. You are most welcome.
Haldir: We are proud to fight alongside men once more.
Gandalf (hidden): You are tracking the footsteps of two young hobbits.
Aragorn: Where are they?
Gandalf: They passed this way, the day before yesterday. They met someone, they did not expect. Does that comfort you?
Aragorn: Who are you? Show yourself! (sees Gandalf). This cannot be. You fell.
Gandalf: Through fire, and water. From the lowest dungeon to the highest peak, I fought with the Balrog of Morgoth. Until at last I smote his ruin upon the mountainside. Darkness took me, and I strayed out of all thought and time. Stars wheeled overhead, and everyday was as long as a lifeage on the earth. But it was not the end. I'd been sent back, until my task is finished.
Gandalf: Gandalf? Yes...that is what they used to call me. Gandalf the Grey, that was my name. *I* am Gandalf the White. And I come back to you now, at the turn of the tide. One stage of your journey is over, another begins.
Legolas: Final count, 42.
Gimli: 42? That's not bad for a pointy-eared elvish princeling such as yourself. I myself am sitting pretty at 43.
Legolas: (shoots an arrow at the orc Gimli's sitting on) 43.
Gimli: He was already dead.
Legolas: He was twitching.
Gimli: He was twitching, because he's got my axe embedded in his nervous system!
Gimli: Legolas! 2 already!
Legolas: I'm on 17.
Gimli: What? I'll have no pointy-ear outscoring me!
RETURN OF THE KING
All that is gold does not glitter,
Gimli: I never thought I'd die fighting side by side with an elf.
Legolas: How about side by side with a friend?
Gimli: Aye. I can do that.
How do you pick up the threads of an old life? How do you go on when in your heart, you begin to understand...there is no going back.
Arwen: Tell me what you have seen.
Arwen: You have the gift of foresight. What did you see?
Elrond: I looked into your future and I saw death.
Arwen: But there is also life. You saw there was a child. You saw my son.
Elrond: That future is almost gone.
Arwen: But it is not lost.
Elrond: Nothing is for certain.
Arwen: Some things are certain. Ada, if I leave him now, I will regret it forever.
Aragorn: For Frodo.
Aragorn: My friends, you bow to no one.
Elrond: Put aside the Ranger. Become who you were born to be. Ónen i-Estel Edain. (I give hope to Men)
Aragorn: Ú-chebin Estel anim. (I keep none for myself)
Legolas: The way is shut. It was made by those who are dead, and the dead keep it. The way is shut.
Aragorn: I do not fear Death.
The King of the Dead: The dead do not suffer the living to pass.
Aragorn: You *will* suffer me.
Gimli: There is plenty for both of us, may the best dwarf win.
Eomer: You should not encourage him.
Eowyn: And you should not doubt him.
Eomer: I do not doubt his heart, only the reach of his arm.
Eowyn: He has as much cause as you to go to war. Why can he not fight for those he loves?
Eowyn: Whatever happens, stay with me. I'll protect you.
[Singing to Denethor]
Gimli: Certainty of death, small chance of success...What are we waiting for?
That's all for now! I really have to watch all the movies again, for the 100th time! Namaarie!
