I’M SORRY I COULDN’T RESIST!!!!!!
- Okay, but seriously, Glorfindel is the best elf ever. He was an elflord in Gondolin who escaped during its fall to Morgoth. During the retreat, the fleeing elves were ambushed and one of the enemies was a Balrog, like the one that Gandalf fought in Moria.
- Glorfindel dueled the Balrog, killing it and clearing the path so that the rest of the elves could escape. However, he was killed in the process and, like all elves who die, his spirit went to the Halls of Mandos where it rested and was cleansed and where he was eventually reembodied (which happens with elves). However, unlike other elves, Glorfindel was sent back across the sea during the Second Age where he continued to kick ass and take names.
- Notable among these being the time he totally faced down the Witch-King of Angmar who fucked right off and ran away. Incidentally, the future king of Gondor was there for that and totally wanted to chase down the Witch-King and Glorfindel was like “Do not pursue him! He will not return to these lands. Far off yet is his doom, and not by the hand of man will he fall.”
OH SNAP I BET YOU DIDN’T KNOW IT WAS GLORFINDEL THAT SAID THAT SHIT, THAT’S BECAUSE HE GOT SHAFTED IN THE MOVIES
In fact, contrary to what the movies would have you believe, it was Glorfindel, not Arwen, who scoops up Frodo and outruns the Nazgul to get him safely to Rivendell.
So as you can see, he is basically the best elf ever in the entire world and absolutely deserving of the Regina George treatment.

Well SOMEBODY clearly didn’t want to share their time booth!

My old political science professor, Dr. Herndon dressed in his usual attire.
Finally got a photo of him!
His office door is the tardis and he usually has his sonic screwdriver but not at this moment.
Dr. Herndon is THE BEST.
Taking Tauriel on the Tongariro Crossing.
A week and a half ago, we went on an epic journey to New Zealand. Right next to Mt. Doom (Mt. Ngauruhoe), is Mt. Ruapehu, a gorgeous snow capped stratovolcano.
The air smells of sulfur, and the land is beautifully craggy; an other-wordly tundra as far as the eye can see. Bright yellow and orange moss and plant life cover the stunning volcanic rock.
This location and surrounding ski parks was the place Peter Jackson chose for Emyn Muil. And rightly so…it’s perfect for it. You’d expect an orc to bound out at you from across the rocky terrain.
A perfect place to leap out of our rental car, in costume and snap some pictures.
Legolas’ is coming soon.
