     And all the more disgruntling [In reply to]  

[Rant on]
for that
  • THIS was a scene that's a sudden addition they worked out on the fly
  • Alan Lee quick-sketching the background impromptu for the actors and director to have something to work off on, and them showing it just makes me want to see the realised version even more... imagine...

(GIFs of the scene)
  • another location in the Halls... and look at Erebor in the distance! I can just imagine it, Thranduil making time everyday for the longest time to just stand there and stare at it, thinking about the White-Gems.
  • It's a Thranduil and Leggy moment. And they both speak Elvish!
  • Thranduil displaying a different, softer, emotion, that's not been seen yet. He's so sad and solemn... must be the sight of Erebor and the thought of those Gems.
  • Legolas gets character layering. He's not the jealous little princeling hanging on to Tauriel. This puts a different spin to their relationship, which would have been great to see. Also, he's a trusted confidante of Thranduil here. And that's as it should, for beings who live so long. Legolas' knowledge he displays in LotR makes sense with this... he didn't just sleep on an encyclopedia of ME one night and wake up in time to fulfil his destiny as the Oracle of the (partial)Fellowship.
  • Thranduil's awesome intellect and intuiting ability on display. "You have two days" he say so simply. Without ado or drama, but it's so full of PORTENT. And shows, imo, he cares very much for Tauriel in his own way, being willing to let Legolas even try. And even Legolas catching on is another side to him that's been missing.
  • I can understand that PJ took it out to preserve the impact of Bard's realisation. But why should it take away from the storyflow if it's worked in well? The crew has shown they're very capable of making things work if they wanted to. For example, why couldn't the scene of Bard making the discovery be interwoven with a small scene of Tauriel and Legolas en-route to Lake-town where Tauriel asks Legolas the circumstances of him getting the King's leave to come after her. He can tell her the deadline and do reminiscence of this exact scene, and as Thranduil recites the rhyme, the scene blends and morphs into Bard doing his thing. It's been done in the films before. For all the visual callbacks and resonances PJ has forced into TH, this would be the one call-back to all those LotR scenes of blending voices, seemingly disjointed scenes bleeding into one another that I would have loved and WANT TO SEE.

Oh my I've been away for a day and look at all the new Pretty! being posted by you lovely Thralls. I don't even know where to look right now, it's got me baffled and I'm not coping well (this might also have something to do with the fact there's no new Thranduil scenes included in DOS EE and I'm still in shock). I'm starting to misread and misinterpret posts in the most exotic ways like this picture posted by Lurker concerning the sword sheath thingy.


In Reply To


I was like Lurker you cannot post a closeup of that, and here I was thinking I was the one with TORn guidelines against explicit content posting problems. Then I started to actually read what that post was about and it all made sense to me Tongue


Just LoL! VValar!

"And the bells shall ring in gladness at the mountain king’s return.
but all shall fail in sadness..”


i totally cant understand why PJ deleted this!!





Is it wrong to just watch this clip over and over again. Especially the part where Thranduil speaks Elvish in that amazing sexy voice? OMG I died a little when I heard him say it *oh swoooooon* and *thudderling THUDDING* *starts hyperventilating*

     Simple! [In reply to]  

Just take the link in the URL window of the image or the source page of the image (eg tumblr post page): ie right-click on the URL, then do the usual to "attach" it to your TORn uploaded image (I'm assuming that's what you do). So you don't have to go through an external image hosting source at all. Hotlinking is when you directly paste the URL of the source image as an image on a post. By uploading a guideline-appropriate image directly as an attachment and then "attaching" the source URL to it in a post, you're not hotlinking. You remain a guideline-abiding TORn user and the mods won't have occasion to unleash WoM on you.

Hope that made sense.Smile
