Aha! [In reply to] Can't Post

So, do share: what is it about book-Thorin that you find more attractive than movie-Thorin? I never found book-Thorin to be particularly sympathetic or nuanced, which I think is in complete opposition (and welcomely so, to me at least!) to movie-Thorin. So I'm curious to see what you find fangirl-worthy in book-Thorin.

Can a Dwarf be manly? [In reply to] Can't Post

Thorin had me on the doorstep, and I don't think I stop drooling for the whole movie. I love the striding down the pine tree bit too. Such courage...such bravery...such hotness. *ahem*

So, have to ask: you meet Thorin and Aragorn in the woods. Which one do you follow home?

Love love love RA's Thorin in this one - but I'd still follow Aragorn home. [In reply to] Can't Post

Yes, RA's Thorin vibrates with passion, but it's all for his cause, there would be none left for a woman, ladies. He has never married, did you notice that? He is so blasted honourable that if there HAD been a woman in his life in the past 100 years or so he would have married her. And it's going to get worse before the end, I'm afraid. There is no room in his life now for that quality Magpie rightly says we all yearn for in a man:

Quote
I mean to look at a woman and 'see' her. To be present with her. To take her in (in your attention) to the point of shutting other things out at times.


Which will make his final scene even more heart-breaking. We'll all be thinking, "I could have been the one to pick up the pieces after his shattering realizations! I could have been the one to teach him how to value food and cheer and song! I could have saved his brooding, smoldering carscass, and we would have lived passionately ever after!" (wild sobbing throughout theaters all over the world)

So, I'd still go home with Strider because his love sits right up there equally with his sense of responsibility to do what his destiny demands, and he "saw" Eowyn as well as Arwen. And we haven't even mentioned Faramir - scholar, warrior, see-er of woman. (sigh)

Blush I'm gettin' just a tad dramatic here, but these guys sorta' bring it out in us, don't they? Who's writing this Hobbit stuff!Crazy

Actually, [In reply to] Can't Post

he had me during Bilbo's description of him in the Erebor introduction. The part that starts 'the young Dwarf prince' and shows Thorin leading the small group of Dwarves up to a precipice looking out over a valley, and ends with 'and he never forgave, and he never forgot' - wonderful script, delivery by Ian Holm, character-setting, and eye candy to boot Tongue

And I'd take Fili over Kili any day!

Agree with you on Fili [In reply to] Can't Post

Absolutely nothing against Aidan or his character but that roquish twinkle in Fili's eyes is so very fetching, my attention is drawn to him rather than Kili. On the attractiveness score, between Fili and his Uncle Thorin, I'm all about the eyes :-)

Seriously, I'm quite sensitive for a man's voice and Thorin has that beautiful low manly voice I can't resist. And that sorrow in his eyes...
I read somewhere that RA actually practised lowing his voice by reading Shakespeare. For me, that finally does it Smile

I bet the good professor... [In reply to] Can't Post

...if he were somehow able to read this discussion, would be utterly nonplussed by it. He obviously understood "romance" in the literary sense, but in the estrogen-spiking sense? Not so much.

But that's the thing about an excellent author. He (or she) achieves ends that he never intended to pursue!

Thorin! [In reply to] Can't Post

Okay, I completely understand the why's of choosing Aragorn. He's handsome, a skilled fighter, not confilicted, won't get lost in the woods, and likes touching ears. However, since the vast majority of women here would choose Aragorn, I'm going for Thorin. Not just to be contrary, and not just because I usually side with the underdog. Thorin as depicted in this film is noble and self-sacrificing, willing to risk his life even for those he deems unworthy (Bilbo). He's a born leader and commands respect by leading by example rather than by force. Still, there's a gentleness and quietness behind those piercing eyes that tell of a side of himself he doesn't reveal to those he's leading, with the possible exception of Balin, his trusted advisor. Speaking of which for all his stubbornness, he always seems to trust Gandalf's judgments in the end.

Besides, following Aragorn home would be a long and tiresome journey, I'm sure. I wouldn't be able to keep up. They didn't call him Strider for nothing! And, you know, Thorin's hair is WAY nicer than mine!!

Yes, Faramir [In reply to] Can't Post

Whose father dismisses his lordly tendencies. For me, the biggest tragedy of ROTK was the loss of the Faramir/Eowyn story, hardly rectified in the EE. I loved book Faramir and his general sense of the romantic. I mean, Aragorn leaves Arwen hanging on for decades...

True about Thorin's lack of a woman in his life (the Professor addresses the general non-marrying nature of dwarves). Guess us girls always want the guys that are hardest to get.

First impressions... [In reply to] Can't Post

I was taken in by his being fashionably late. Oooh, what a man-dwarf to keep us is suspense. Then that uber-manly knock at the door - everyone held their collective breaths; eventually I had to swallow my mouthful of popcorn though. The real kicker was a combo - his getting lost and not asking anyone for directions, then complaining about how difficult it was to find the place. Hell, even that airhead Kili found it, though he probably just followed Fili.

Keep it quiet back there! Am I gonna have to pull this horse over? Who wants the the Hot Wheels track across the face? You, Dwalin? From then on, it all just seemed like a dream. Heart

A few harmless flakes working together can unleash an avalanche of destruction.

With you 100 %, Grey Elf! [In reply to] Can't Post

From the moment they were first introduced, I've really liked the looks of Fili and Kili. But while Kili has that brooding angstiness about him, Fili has that cheeky, fun loving aspect about him.
But I'd also take Unky Thorin over both of them!

I agree, my heart was already gone... [In reply to] Can't Post

I loved North & South and Spooks/MI-5. Once I knew Richard would be playing the role, I had no doubt Thorin would be the hottest dwarf ever. And just because Thorin never marries or finds true love, doesn't mean he's not capable of it, IMHO. Power and passion -- it's all there.
