"Begone, foul dwimmerlaik, lord of carrion! Leave the dead in peace!"
.
A cold voice answered: "come not between the Nazgûl and his prey! Or he will not slay thee in thy turn. He will bear thee away to the houses of lamentation, beyond all darkness, where thy flesh shall be devoured, and thy shrivelled mind be left naked to the Lidless Eye."
.
A sword rang as it was drawn. "Do what you will; but I will hinder it, if I may."
.
"Hinder me? Thou fool. No living man may hinder me!"
.
Then Merry heard of all sounds in that hour the strangest. It seemed that Dernhelm laughed, and the clear voice was like the ring of steel.
"But no living man am I! You look upon a woman. Éowyn I am, Éomund's daughter. You stand between me and my lord and kin. Begone, if you be not deathless! For living or dark undead, I will smite you, if you touch him."

Today's #MiddleEarthMarch prompt is Most Badass Moment, and I really don't think I have anything left to say. I'll let the quotes do the talking for me - nothing will ever beat this passage.

« Egli gridò con voce tonante, più limpida di ogni altra voce mortale udita sino a quel giorno: ALZATE QUELLE CAZZO DI MANI!"

Gondor vs Rohan? Had to think about it for a fair bit. I decided on Rohan because while my heart ultimately belongs to Aragorn, he wasn't king yet during the events that took place in LOTR. And Denathor is simply not a leader I can bend my knee too. Theoden, on the other hand, faced his fears and conquered them! 🍀
This passage from LOTR always makes me feel like crying. Farewell King Theoden, we will never be able to talk about herblore again but your memory remains green forever 😢

Day 24: #favcharacterfriday : gone too soon

Theoden, King of Rohan
• "Arise, arise, Riders of Théoden!
Fell deeds awake: fire and slaughter!
spear shall be shaken, shield be splintered,
a sword-day, a red day, ere the sun rises!
Ride now, ride now! Ride to Gondor!"

I instantly loved Theoden, especially his portrayal in the films by Bernard Hill. I don't think anyone could possibly have played him better. He is a man who has been dealt so many blows in his life. His kingdom is in decline, with ever increasing darkness at his borders and his mind has been poisoned by a former ally and friend. When we meet Theoden he is far from the man who will lead his men into valiant battle in defence of another kingdom (one which has often turned from him in his own hours of need). Theoden battles inner turmoil and rises to accept his fate with courage and defiance

Mount Sunday: Off the beaten track and over an hour's travel from a main road, but well worth the expedition in order to see an iconic site.

Its Day 24 of Middle Earth March and its about a character gone too soon. Prince Theodred of Rohan, son and heir to King Theoden is someone who, unfortunately, we do not get to know as a character. A great battle commander and heroic leader, Prince Theodred gives his life during the First Battle of the Fords of Isen but the Rohirrim successfully held the ford against Saruman's armies. "Let me lie here - to keep the ford until Eomer comes." are the last words of Theodred. Seeing the sorrow and pain that King Theoden goes through after the loss of his son truly touches the heart and Lady Eowyn's lament at his funeral makes me wish even more that he stayed alive. It would be wonderful to see him ride along Theoden and Eomer at the Battle of Helms Deep and the Battle of the Pelenor Fields! "Now dear Theodred lies in darkness / most loyal of fighters. / The sound of the harp shall not wake the warrior; / nor shall the man hold a golden wine-cup./ An evil death has set forth the noble warrior / A song shall sing the sorrowing ministrels of mead-halls / That he is no more, to his Lord dearest / And kinsman beloved, death took him."

I fangirl a lot over elves, but the men of middle earth are cool, too. Theoden could have been a much better King if he had better judgment.

#MiddleEarthMarch DAY 22: Gondor vs. Rohan
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This was a tough decision because I love them both so much, but in the end, I think I'd choose #Rohan . They are the underdogs, yet have so much bravery and heart. When it comes right down to it, I would rather live in #Edoras with its wide open spaces and magnificent hilltops, rather than be stuck inside a city of stone (even if #MinasTirith is absolutely beautiful). My opinion of course would change if Aragorn asked me to be his queen! 😉😄😍

Day 22: Gondor v Rohan

If I was a human living in Middle-earth I think I'd live in Minas Tirith. I love the history and the kings and the White City, with the line of kings firmly reestablished in the Fourth Age under the rule of Elessar, it would be a good place to live. However. In the real world, the moment we entered Rohan in The Two Towers, I was in love. There is something about the Rohirrim that instantly endeared itself to me. Eomer, Eowyn and Theoden are incredible characters. Helm's Deep chills me to bone every time I watch the battle, their arrival at Pelennor Fields brings me to tears. I just freaking love Rohan, and I don't know why. Perhaps because we spend so much time with them, compared to Gondorians? Are we biased against Gondor because of the actions of Boromir and Denethor? Or is Theoden just a real underdog who's been beaten and defeated so much that we feel his sorrow and pain? I don't know. But I do love them

The Lament for the Rohirrim in the book is recited by Aragorn, in the film, it is used so powerfully for Theoden as he prepares for battle (one of my favourite scenes)

"Where now are the horse and the rider? Where is the horn that was blowing?
Where is the helm and the hauberk, and the bright hair flowing?
Where is the harp on the harpstring, and the red fire glowing?
Where is the spring and the harvest and the tall corn growing?
They have passed like rain on the mountain, like a wind in the meadow;
The days have gone down in the West behind the hills into shadow.
Who shall gather the smoke of the deadwood burning,
Or behold the flowing years from the Sea returning?"
(How did it come to this *goosebumps*) •

Rohan, my lord, is my pick for today's query. Gondor is amazing in its own way. Minas Tirith is imposing and magnificent, Ithilien is about as lovely a place as they come, at least in the world of men... But ROHAN, guys. This place is it. Sure, it might be a bit desolate at the time of the story, but the people! The scenery! Meduseld! Horses galore! Rohan has this delicious Norse vibe and such a vibrant culture. So as wonderfully rich in history as both places are, particularly Gondor as far as the story of the ring goes, this one is a no-brainer for me. Forth Eorlingas! 🐎🐎🐎🐎🐎🐎🐎

"Do you not know death when you see it? Die now and curse in vain."
...and in that very moment, away behind in some courtyard of the city, a cock crowed...welcoming only the morning that in the sky far above the shadows of death was coming with the dawn. And as if in answer there came from far away another note. Horns, horns, horns...great horns of the North wildly blowing. Rohan had come.

"Arise, arise, Riders of Théoden! Fell deeds awake: fire and slaughter! Spear shall be shaken, shield be splintered, a sword-day, a red day, ere the sun rises! Ride now, ride now!"

Hello my friends! Today's #MiddleEarthMarch prompt is Gondor vs Rohan and I actually think this is the first prompt so far that gave me no trouble in deciding, I'll always be a Rohirrim at heart. If we're talking who would win in a battle, Gondor is undoubtedly more Mighty and superior in a myriad of ways, but I'm not considering this from that aspect, I'm just stating which I prefer!
.
I think it's largely to do with the fact that they're essentially the 'peasants' of Middle Earth - my favourite insult coming from Saruman in the extended edition of The Return of the King film: "What is the house of Rohan but a thatched barn where brigands drink in the reek and rats roll on the floor with the dogs? The victory at Helm's Deep does not belong to you, Théoden Horse-Master! You are a lesser son of greater sires." - they're almost always considered lesser than the Gondorians in every way, yet it was the bravery and sacrifice of the Rohirrim who not only changed the tide of the Battle of Minas Tirith, but during previous invasions of Gondor. I've always been a fan of the under-dog. Not to mention so many of the coolest characters in the whole legendarium are inhabitants of Rohan - most importantly the most badass character of all, Éowyn.

FORTH ÉORLINGAS!
