"Love woke me up this morning
With a memory
Love came and whispered a story
That awakened a dream,

I am a dreamer, take me higher
Open the sky up, start a fire
I believe even if it's just a dream"

     the grieving kings - a thought (and way to go Eruvandi!!!!) [In reply to]  

 
Another nod to VeArkenstone - in that the suffering of Thranduil was brought home to re post on the backstory of Thranduil. And I think about that, the suffering of Thorin which is only briefly touched on, but when you think about what it must be like to lead an exiled people, with just the clothes on their back - in the U.S. we have gotten to see something of that re the storms Katrina and Sandy. Walking in battlefields so gory your boots sink into it, and tormenting himself over his father.

And I imagine what it would have been like for Thranduil, what it must still be like for him, remembering, his father gone, soil and water creeping over the fallen, leading so few back to the forest. So I think at times these kings are not as far from each other as they might believe.

I'll be back to pester Lurker I am sureWink, but some moody imagery re memories (unless IMO we get really lucky and get a Thranduil prologue):

     Yay new thread, and new threadstarter Eruvandi! [In reply to]  

I had a bet with myself it might be you if threadlock happened in the US day Cool Boy, Thread VI was like the fastest to threadlock, no thanks to *ahem*equal opportunistic Thralls of multi-persuasionTongue


Nonetheless, Thranduil is pleased with the diversity overall, there's plenty of suitable guest accommodation in the Halls Smile


PS Correction: I didn't start Thread II, that was Rowan Greene as well.

     That's something I had meant to respond to in the previous thread [In reply to]  

(I'm so happy I finally got to start an appreciation thread!Laugh) *ahem*

It hadn't occurred to me until you all mentioned it somewhere in the old thread (I can't seem to find the post otherwise I would link to it) that Oropher would have been one of the bodies in the dead marshes. It seems to me that elves generally prefer to bury their dead properly if possible and wouldn't be happy about leaving them to rot in a marsh. I imagine it might even be considered dishonorable. So the fact that Thranduil had to leave his own father out there probably added that much more to his suffering.Unimpressed

     *ahem* Cos we are the thralldom [In reply to]  



We've paid our dues (still paying it)
Time after time
We've done the searching
And despaired sometimes
No bad angles (none at all, even in the uctuous GIF fields)
But there's some abuse
I've had my share of smut (ewww the nightmares)
Shoved in my face
But I've come through

And we mean to go on and on and on and on

We are the thralldom - my friends
And we'll keep on thralling
Till the end
We are the thralldom
We are the thralldom
No time for losers
'Cause we are the thralldom of the HeartKingHeart

We've whined no grouses (though images are few and scattered wide)
But our duty calls
Every Pretty! images stun
And everyone goes THUDDERIN

We've seen it all
Still every iteration pleases
No pleasure cruise
I consider it a challenge before
The whole tumblr space
And I ain't gonna lose (any images of the King... Woodland Weekend, yeah!)

And we mean to go on and on and on and on

We are the thralldom - my friends
And we'll keep on thralling
Till the end
We are the thralldom
We are the thralldom
No time for losers
'Cause we are the thralldom of the HeartKingHeart
We are the thralldom - my friends

And we'll keep on thralling
Till the end
We are the thralldom
We are the thralldom
No time for losers

Typical elven hauteur.



Typical elvish lack of gratitude for the rich, sensitive, thoughtful contributions of other Middle Earth races. Typical grudging hospitality, barely embracing the noble, age-old idea of guest friendship. At least Elrond unbent enough to serve up some trays of sushi rolls.

     where Oropher might be..... [In reply to]  

Pulled this from the Tolkien Gateway - perhaps someone more knowledgeable or better read knows the fate of Oropher - I think even if Thranduil had been able to find him, still, the aftermath would have been beyond terrible to look upon. Re below, I am not sure where Oropher would have actually fallen, but in the chaos of a battle he might have ended in the marshes - or before the gates of Mordor?


http://tolkiengateway.net/wiki/Oropher

Despite the Silvan Elves' hostility towards the Dwarves and the Noldor - and their desire to stay away from the affairs of the rest of the world - Oropher could see the danger that Sauron posed, and that his defeat would bring about peace in Middle-earth, so he joined the Last Alliance of Elves and Men. Oropher summoned a great army which joined with Amdr's smaller force of Lrien Elves to create one large host of Silvan Elves; the Silvan Elves were strong and brave, but had poor armour and weapons in comparison with the Noldor.[1] Amdr and Oropher were unwilling to submit to the supreme command of Gil-galad, as such they suffered heavier losses in the War of the Last Alliance. Amdr, and half his forces, died in the Battle of Dagorlad as they were cut off in the Dead Marshes from the main force, whilst two-thirds of Oropher's army also perished. Oropher himself was killed in the very first assault upon Mordor as he and other brave and hasty Elves rushed forward before Gil-galad gave the signal to charge. At the end of the war the remnants of the army returned to Greenwood under the command of Oropher's son, Thranduil.

Typical Dwarven self-denial.
