i +love+ how the posting milestone markers mirror a physical journey across middle earth. and i had a lot of fun figuring them all out.
posting milestone markers
but, just to say, it appears to go from gondor to tol eressea. wouldn't it make more sense to go to the gray havens, then tol eressea?
aka. fili orc-enshield
the scene, as i understand it, is exceptionally well-written. fili (in sort of a callback to the scene with the eagles), calls out "thorRIIIIIIN!!!" just as he sees the pale orc veer in for the kill. he picks up the severed arm of an orc which is lying on the ground, swings it up in desperation, effectively blocking the pale orc's blow. and thus, forever after, fili is known as "fili orc-enshield."
this earns him deep respect from his hard-to-please uncle. as well as a hug. kili wipes his boots on the pale orc's glory box. -- maciliel
