It's time for some BS! Can't Post

T'is a Book Spoiler, fersher, of a leisurely and informative stay in Rivendell... for a moment of Tolkien-zen.

From A Short Rest: The Hobbit

... "And so at last they all came to the Last Homely House, and found its doors flung wide....
... ...They stayed long in that good house, fourteen days at least, and they found it hard to leave. Bilbo would gladly have stopped there for ever and ever—even supposing a wish could have taken him right back to his hobbit-hole without trouble....
... ...All of them, the ponies as well, grew refreshed and strong in a few days there. Their clothes were mended as well as their bruises, their tempers and their hopes. Their bags were filled with food and provisions light to carry but strong to bring them over the mountain passes. Their plans were improved with the best advice...
... ...Elrond knew all about runes of every kind. That day he looked at the swords they had brought from the trolls' lair, and he said: "These are not troll-make. They are old swords, very old swords of the High Elves of the West, my kin. They were made in Gondolin for the Goblin-wars. They must have come from a dragon's hoard or goblin plunder, for dragons and goblins destroyed that city many ages ago. This, Thorin, the runes name Orcrist, the Goblin-cleaver in the ancient tongue of Gondolin; it was a famous blade. This, Gandalf, was Glamdring, Foe-hammer that the king of Gondolin once wore. Keep them well!"
... "Whence did the trolls get them, I wonder?" said Thorin looking at his sword with new interest.
... "I could not say... ...but one may guess that your trolls had plundered other plunderers, or come on the remnants of old robberies in some hold in the mountains of the North. I have heard that there are still forgotten treasures of old to be found in the deserted caverns of the mines of Moria, since the dwarf and goblin war."
... Thorin pondered these words. "I will keep this sword in honour," he said. "May it soon cleave goblins once again!"
... "A wish that is likely to be granted soon enough in the mountains!" said Elrond."


I really need these new films to take me back to, and not re-introduce me to, that magical world.
