On the upside, the newest Hobbit production video blog thingy came out! :D
And as an update on The Silmarillion, it is a very depressing book indeed. I got attached to this character, Denethor. (Primarily because of the novelty of there being two Denethors but why exactly I got attached to him doesn't matter because I got attached and that's the point.)
Anyhoo. This particular Denethor is an Elf, the son of Lenwë. And he died. He died two pages, TWO FREAKIN' PAGES after he was introduced.
The Elves he ruled over were so devastated at his passing (he was killed in battle) that they, as a people, never fought in battle again nor had another king.
And that brings an end to today's blog post.
Instead of a quote, I shall leave you with an annoyed Bilbo.
