I recently found out that a dear online friend (you may remember her as Arkenstone) had passed away after a short illness.
Back in the hey day of the Hobbit movies she was a regular blogger Here, tweeter and wrote many lighthearted and wonderful (and sometimes a little raunchy) stories about Lady Oakenshield and Thorin on Wattpad Here.
Over the past year or two life got in the way for both of us and we hadn’t chatted as much but we would still email now and again and catch up on each other’s news.
So Arky, this post by “Lady O” is dedicated to you. You were a funny, kind, generous and giving person and you had a way with words like no one else I know. I’m truly shocked and saddened by your passing and I’m going to miss you very, very much. I hope that we meet again when I too go into the West like all good MiddleEarthians do.
And this wouldn’t be a proper Lady Oakenshield post without a few majestic pictures of our favourite King. I hope you enjoy Arky.
rest in peace.
I know it’s quite old and everyone has seen it before, but I came across it tonight in my camera roll and it made my heart skip a beat so I just had to share it again. It really has it all:pelty goodness, big belt, ring thingies, hair porn, grumpy expression…. I could go on but it’s probably better I just shut up and let you enjoy with me as I present to you, Thorin Oakenshield.
I don’t really have any words to describe how this picture makes me feel: Sad, swoony, sick, scared, smitten, stunned…
It is (as usual) a beautiful picture and it makes me just want to gather him up in my arms and tell him everything is going to be alright. Because Dear Readers it IS going to be alright. I am determined it will be and despite Tolkien insisting otherwise, they all live happily ever after and I will ride off into the sunset with (a rather disheveled I grant you) King Under the Mountain. And I dare you Peter Jackson to stop me!
Yes Dear Readers, as I sat watching the teaser trailer I could not believe my eyes. There, in all its glory was the Pelt. It seems it is back for the grand finale and I for one, am overjoyed. You will forgive me for getting so excited about the return of some Pelty Goodness but when one is confronted with the inevitable despair that the last of the Hobbit trilogy will bring, one needs to clutch at straws. (Although I am still living in #DurinDeathDenial and shall do for the foreseeable future). Fingers crossed for more glimpses of the majestic Pelt in the actual trailer.
