funny you should mention this [In reply to] Can't Post

 
... as this is pretty much my own take on it, aragalen.

for my part, i'm not so intrigued with the mystery of tom's origins, because, from the get-go, i suppose i've just accepted him as goldberry has stated, "he just is."

however, when i have wandered into wondering, i just feel (feel more than think, because it doesn't feel so intellectual to me) that tom could be the spirit of middle earth. so at least you've got company.

cheers --

.


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
