The Lost Pants Thead Can't Post

"And some things that should not have been forgotten were lost. Hoods became pants. Pants became myth."

Welcome one and all to the new and special edition of THE PANTS THREAD!!!

"Pants" as well as "hoods" will be used for replacements in quotes from either the LOTR/Hobbit movies or books today so feel free to mix and match to the best of your ability.

Examples:

"Some things are ill to hear when the world’s in pants."

"The world is full enough of hoods and pants without wars to multiply them."

"I am Aragorn son of Arathorn; and if by pants or hoods I can save you, I will."

A brief history of the pants thread:

The Pants Thread originated in the Star Wars fandom using lines from the original trilogy. Where appropriate the word "pants" would be substituted. After the release of The Fellowship of the Ring in 2001 the thread gained popularity on TORn and has been brought back for many rounds, this thread being no exception.

Some who have read the book, or at any rate have reviewed it, have found it boring, absurd, or contemptible; and I have no cause to complain, since I have similar opinions of their works, or of the kinds of writing they evidently prefer.

Good becomes great. Bad becomes worse.  This is why you were chosen.  Because a strong man who has known power all his life may lose respect for that power.  But a weak man knows the value of strength and knows compassion.

Elvish pants. [In reply to] Can't Post

'Many that live deserve hoods. And some that die deserve pants.'

“In this hour, I do not believe that any pants will endure.”

“Ónen i-panteli edain, ú-chebin panteli anim.

translation(?):


(I gave pants to the Dúnedain, I have kept none for myself.)

Call me Rem, and remember, not all who ramble are lost...Uh...where was I?

Will you look into Gimli's Sewing Box? [In reply to] Can't Post

Frodo: What will I seam?


Galadriel: Even the wisest cannot tell. For the box sews many things. Hoods that were, hoods that are...and something that have not yet come to pants.
Thanks for hosting this fun thread, Party Dwarf Gimli's Box!

And I must say that Forest Green Party Hood and Cloak is very becoming on you....You wear it well Smile

"You shall be the Fellowship of the pants!" [In reply to] Can't Post

Or: "The pants are changed. I feel it in the hoods, I feel it in the earth, I smell it in the pants" Crazy
"I will not say do not hood, for not all pants are an evil"
"We set out to save the pants, Sam. And they have been saved. But not for me."
"You draw far too much attention to yourself, Mr. Underpants!"
"Rohan, my hood, is ready to pants"
"10,000 pants at least." '10,000?' "It is an army bred for a single purpose; to pants the world of Men" 'Let them hood!'

"Ring-Ding" That moment when you are reading or watching Tolkien and the light goes off that you have found something you've never seen before
