I made the very silly decision to delete my blog.
Thankfully, blogger keeps deleted blogs for a while and lets you undelete them
Which is what just happened.
So, over on good olde facebook, I posted this status:
“Remind me never to look at Boromir related stuff on Tumblr ever again… tears in my eyes… clearly still not over that enough to talk about it!”
So, here I am, ready to pour my heart and soul out about this man finally, I think.
We shall see.
First, let me start off with saying that I have been on a bit of a Tolkien high lately. Mostly after being asked if I would roleplay as a certain Dwarf over on OneWorldRoleplay. Whenever I am asked to take on a certain role that I do no know or understand I do my very best to research the role… thats by the by.
It is a very well known fact of my fangirlings that my favourite character always dies. So, when I went to see the first Lord of the Rings movie way back in 2001 (Time flies, huh?) I was certain that with Boromir I was on to a winner. I really should have known better, because… Sean Bean.
I can honestly say that death is one of the most soul shattering, tear jerking things that I’ve ever witnessed. No, seriously. Here is a man so determined to restore honour and dignity to his people he would sacrifice his humanity to do it – sure it could be said that was the One Ring talking to him, making him be a bit of a jerk to Frodo about it; I’m rambling now, I know it.
Why did Tumblr (Of all strange internet places) almost make me break down while at University?
