In the book it says that the people living around the Lonely Mountain referred to Smaug “with a curse and an ominous nod in the direction of the Mountain” and I just pictured Bard nodding solemnly towards the Mountain and whispering “motherfucker”

Today in Middle-Earth: The Nazgul attack the camp under Weathertop at night. Frodo is wounded. (October 6th, 3018 T.A.)
There were five tall figures: two standing on the lip of the dell, three advancing. In their white faces burned keen and merciless eyes; under their mantles were long grey robes; upon their grey hairs were helms of silver; in their haggard hands were swords of steel. Their eyes fell on him and pierced him, as they rushed towards him. Desperate, he drew his own sword, and it seemed to him that it flickered red, as if it was a firebrand. Two of the figures halted. The third was taller than the others: his hair was long and gleaming and on his helm was a crown. In one hand he held a long sword, and in the other a knife; both the knife and the hand that held it glowed with a pale light. He sprang forward and bore down on Frodo.
At that moment Frodo threw himself forward on the ground, and he heard himself crying aloud: O Elbereth! Gilthoniel! At the same time he struck at the feet of his enemy. A shrill cry rang out in the night; and he felt a pain like a dart of poisoned ice pierce his left shoulder. Even as he swooned he caught, as through a swirling mist, a glimpse of Strider leaping out of the darkness with a flaming brand of wood in either hand. With a last effort Frodo, dropping his sword, slipped the Ring from his finger and closed his right hand tight upon it.
Small sketch of Thranduil. I’ve always loved Tolkien’s elves, and he is no exception. I can’t wait to see more of him in the movies.
