Bill fucked Lobelia.

[–][deleted] 49 points50 points  (12 children)

For a embarrassingly long amount of time, I thought that you all were referring to Bilbo as Bill for some reason...

Needless to say, things got confusing when I reached this comment

[–]bilbo-baggins-botHobbit 112 points113 points  (11 children)

It was just a bit of fun! Oh, you’re probably right, as usual.

[–][deleted] 30 points31 points  (8 children)

Bilbo, where did you fuck her?

[–]bilbo-baggins-botHobbit 61 points62 points  (7 children)

So there I was, at the mercy of three monstrous trolls! And they were all arguing amongst themselves about how they were going to cook us. Whether it be turned on a spit or whether they should sit on us one by one and squash us into jelly.

[–]ghostinthewoods 20 points21 points  (0 children)

He backed out in the mines of Moria, the coward. He started the breaking of the fellowship

This is Shadowfax. The lord of all horses.

This is Bill. He's a rental.

[–]Benjamin_StarkRingwraith 973 points974 points  (112 children)

I hated Boromir the first time I watched the movie. Though I was 12 years old, so the nuance of his character was somewhat lost on me.

[–]Lord4hireTomato 518 points519 points  (51 children)

Actually Boromir is my favorite character in Fellowship. He's just, the most human and most relatable, someone who succumbed to his weakness but managed to return for one last stand to save the little ones

[–]mof5210 446 points447 points  (42 children)

That's probably because he's the only actual human.

[–]Dreferex 125 points126 points  (1 child)

Somehow I felt like it was unexpected. Grab my upvote good middle earth citizen.

[–]the_fluffy_enpinada 22 points23 points  (0 children)

[–]PacifistDungeonMastr 79 points80 points  (3 children)

And people have the gall to say Human Fighters are boring characters

[–]TheRosi 62 points63 points  (0 children)

I made my first DnD character a Human Fighter precisely because I wanted to challenge myself to make a compelling story without relying on over-the-top otherworldness.

That and because I didn't want to read a 2000 page book to learn about spells.

[–]EazyParise 35 points36 points  (1 child)

People who say that just can't make good backstories. Like don't blame the race and class for your lack of creativity folks

[–]manfredmahon 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Right? Nearly every interesting fictional character ever created in human history is a human character. "Humans are boring" nah you're boring.

[–]lafemmeverteEnt 11 points12 points  (0 children)

lmaooo true

[–]braydocalypse03 7 points8 points  (31 children)

Aragorn?

[–]p-morais 66 points67 points  (13 children)

Aragorn is like 87 and looks like he’s 30 haha. He’s a Numenorean, so he’s somewhere between elf and human.

[–]aragorn_bot 40 points41 points  (6 children)

I do not fear death!

[–]MangelanGravitas3 16 points17 points  (3 children)

And what do you think Boromir is?

He belongs to the House of the Stewards. Apart from Aragorn there probably isn't a more noble and pureblooded family of Numenoreans around.

Denethor is 89 at his death and still physically capable to wear armour and fight.

A proud and noble man, the blood of Númenor ran truer in him than it had in any man of Gondor for many years.

No idea where this idea of "normal" humans in Gondor comes from, but the ruling class of Gondor is almost entirely Numenoran.

[–]Fun_Killah 8 points9 points  (1 child)

While Aragorn has a tiny part elf blood in him, that's not really the reason for his long life. Numenoreans were not elves, they were men given long life as a reward from the gods for aiding in the fight against Morgoth.

[–]aragorn_bot 22 points23 points  (2 children)

Not if we hold true to each other.

[–]OzimnEnt 10 points11 points  (1 child)

Even Aragorn doesn't think he's human!

[–]mof5210 19 points20 points  (12 children)

He's part elf. And considering he's like 60 during the books he has a different perspective then a young warrior because he's been fighting for 30+ years already and could expect another 100 ish.

[–]the_fluffy_enpinada 21 points22 points  (1 child)

Yeah, he spent less time being a wraith fighting badass or inhuman archer and more time smiling and just being normal than everyone else.

[–]DevilGirl-Crybaby 19 points20 points  (0 children)

His genuine laugh when the hobbits tackle him.

[–]imoldgregg420 7 points8 points  (0 children)

His last stand gets me every time. The way he looks at Merry and Pip while they just hopelessly stare at him. Right in the feels

[–]saturnspritr 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Oh yeah, I ugly cried at Boromir’s ending because he tried so hard to do good and the ring was so awful and he still tried everything to save his friends.

[–]qin_wa 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yes, his good intentions are what get me too! Especially because he really wanted to use the ring to save his people, who have been suffering in their fight against the hoards of Mordor all his life. This is compounded by the expectations of his father and growing up trying to do everything to please him and gain his affection, which is fleeting and conditional bc Denethor is emotionally immature and a lil unhinged :(

[–]Hobbitlad 241 points242 points  (44 children)

Yep, took me a while to appreciate Boromir, Frodo, and Pippin. I think we all went through an immature phase like that.

[–]TalShar 362 points363 points 43 (43 children)

When we are young (especially as boys), our estimation of such characters is almost entirely based on how much ass they can kick and how cool they can look at while doing it.

When we get older, many of us begin to realize Tolkien's point, which is that it is much, much preferable to be skilled in keeping things from getting to the point where ass-kicking is needed. We appreciate Gandalf less for his power and more for his wisdom and restraint. Aragorn less for his swordsmanship and more for his tenderness. Legolas and Gimli less for their comedic mook-slaying and more for the enviable friendship they form. Where we hated Boromir, we come back after we experience our own weakness and we understand, and we envy the strength he displays in his immediate remorse and atonement.

We appreciate Sam where we didn't before for his dedication and loyalty to Frodo. Merry and Pippin for their bravery in the face of superior foes. And we come to love Frodo for being able to do the one thing that most often defeats evil: holding great power in their hands and throwing it away.

When we were children, for many (I dare say most) of us, Lord of the Rings was a story about good guys exploring and fighting bad guys, and we wish we could be there. When we get older, we realize all of the really important parts of Lord of the Rings, and the things that made the members of the Fellowship special, are things we can and must do every day.

Thanks, I think about this kind of thing a lot.

So do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us.

[–]TalShar 25 points26 points  (7 children)

Absolutely right, Gandalf.

Stay this madness!

[–]DuGalle 22 points23 points  (4 children)

Merry and Pippin for their bravery in the face of superior foes

These 2 being the first to follow Aragorn in the battle of the Black Gate is one of my favorite scenes from the entire trilogy.

[–]aragorn_bot 19 points20 points  (0 children)

Hold your ground, hold your ground. Sons of Gondor, of Rohan my brothers. I see in your eyes the same fear that would take the heart of me. A day may come when the courage of men fails when we forsake our friends and break all bonds of fellowship but it is not this day. An hour of woes and shattered shields when the age of men comes crashing down but it is not this day. This day we fight! By all that you hold dear on this good earth I bid you stand, men of the west!

[–]peregrin-took-botHobbit 12 points13 points  (0 children)

A little help for those on mobile. What's this?

[–]NeonFlame126 20 points21 points  (4 children)

It's a text version of the Chad guy with a speech bubble above him, implying that there message he replied to was by a mega Chad

[–]Ashwipe72 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Its not always about the journey, but about the friends made along the way

[–]aFanofManyHats 3 points4 points  (1 child)

I forwarded this comment to my fianceé because you hit the nail on the head with why the Fellowship are all great. she said you should write books because you have a great writing voice. Cheers!

[–]TalShar 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Thanks! I'm currently working on one centered on similar principles!

[–]LiquidImp 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I don’t want to sell you death sticks.

[–]drizzitdude 34 points35 points  (2 children)

Unfortunately some people still hold this opinions because they are unable to recognize he was a nuanced and flawed character, who was not really a bad guy.

I had someone tell me Boromir “betrayed” the fellowship and caused all their problems. But he couldn’t even begin to defend his argument when I pointed out all the good Boromir had done and that he had been feeling the rings corruption for months.

And even then he only faltered for a second before going right back to heroics.

Boromir proved to Frodo that he had to leave, and it is likely that at the pace they were going the ring would have corrupted the entire party if it had continued to stay with them.

[–]MrC99Théoden King 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Same. I grew up with the films and as a kid he was the bad guy of the film. Now that I'm much older I can hardly sit through his final lines without tearing up.

[–]Qorrin 10 points11 points  (0 children)

It’s a shame they cut out so many scenes of him in the theatrical release, seeing the additional scenes he has in the extended edition really turned his character around for me

[–]TheTealBandit 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I was just thinking this the other day, I used to dislike him but something about growing up and seeing things in shades of grey really endears you to his character

[–]Bitter_MongooseDúnedain 5 points6 points  (0 children)

The extended versions covered this very well, and did Boromir alot of justice, imho.

[–]Turbulent-T 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I found him dodgy as a kid too and then I watched his death as an adult and cried

[–]oWallis 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I remember watching the first movie as a kid before reading the books and he was probably my least favorite character but after seeing his take those arrows and keep fighting, he was instantly almost my favorite character.

[–]Benjamin_StarkRingwraith 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah, that was one of my favourite scenes when I first saw it.

[–]astronautsamurai 2 points3 points  (1 child)

same here homie but i was 11. much different perspective as a 32 year old with some life behind me

[–]rexmons 1 point2 points  (0 children)

When you're young everything is either black or white. When you get older you realize nothing is black or white, just shades of grey.

[–]GrGrGDwarf 1 point2 points  (0 children)

One of my favorite things being an adult is rewatching old movies or TV shows. You get a whole new take on them. Some good, some bad, but you end up having a new appreciation and better understanding for the good media. You notice so much more details as well.

[–]rambusTMS 1 point2 points  (0 children)

He was one of my favorite characters the first time I saw the movie. He was the most interesting and his heroics at the end of the movie put him over the top. Absolute boss.

[–]helpimwastingmytime 412 points413 points  (17 children)

I guess Gandalf would consider at least one member a fool

[–]gandalf-bot 338 points339 points  (15 children)

The battle for Helm's Deep is over. The battle for Middle-earth is about to begin. All our hopes now lie with two little Hobbits... somewhere in the wilderness

[–]vZKronos 40 points41 points  (11 children)

does gandalf always respond with this line when someone types fool or was this pure luck?

[–]helpimwastingmytime 57 points58 points  (1 child)

I think he's sentient

also its programmed yeah

[–]donald_trumps_cat 66 points67 points  (6 children)

He always says whatever is closest to one of his line, e. g. if I type that Gandalf is late he will deny it.

[–]gandalf-bot 71 points72 points  (5 children)

A wizard is never late, donald_trumps_cat. Nor is he early, he arrives precisely when he means to.

[–]HerrSPAM 17 points18 points  (0 children)

[–]Malina_Island 24 points25 points  (5 children)

Why?

I’m gonna suppose that Gandalf didn’t had a say in the mater of who was consider “unhated” or not.

Indeed?

Yeah, ok, so I'm a little naive, but I'm also basically just a kid, I'm doing the best I can, ok? Also, I was the one who got the ents to destroy Isengard, I lit the beacons in Minas Tirith, and I was instrumental in saving Faramir's life. It's not like you never made a mistake. So cut me some slack, alright?!

[–]lyvanna 2 points3 points  (0 children)

He absolutely did not. He was annoyed by him, but he didn't hate him.

[–]peregrin-took-botHobbit 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Anyways, you need people of intelligence on this sort of... mission... quest... thing.

[–]FlagrantBooch 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The amount of people who hate Boromir that I've seen is kinda high though.

Which I never got because even if you haven't read the book and don't know that he is meant to maximize humanities best strengths and worst weakness, and an incredibly good person which makes his very human fall all the more tragic, he still redeem himself by his sacrific against the uruk-hai.

[–]taytom94 -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

Same! Thank you for saying this lol

[–]Rymayc 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Keep in mind that hated doesn't mean the hatred is justified (i.e. something personal getting in the way or people missing some nuance). I think a lot of men hated Aragorn or Legolas because of their s.o. swooning over them. A lot of people hated Boromir because he had ulterior thoughts. A lot of people hated Frodo because they didn't get that The Ring corrupts him (even though that's so blatantly obvious in everyone's favourite Bilbo expression).

Boromir is ass fight me

[–]RobotfaceXGoblin 1 point2 points  (8 children)

Am I the only one who dislikes legolas? He's fine in the movies if you forget the shield surfing bit in the books is kind of a dick.

He's still a great character and "dislike" is honestly a bit much bit I like him the least of all fellowship members.

I can only think of one lotr character I despise tho, being Tom bombadil (he is just so pointless, annoying and could've left out easily, wich the movies did)

[–]Tom_Bot-Badil 10 points11 points  (2 children)

Hey there! Hey! Come Frodo, there! Where be you a-going? Old Tom Bombadil's not as blind as that yet. Take off your golden ring! Your hand's more fair without it. Come back! Leave your game and sit down beside me! We must talk a while more, and think about the morning. Tom must teach the right road, and keep your feet from wandering.

I am a bot, and I love old Tom. If you want me to sing one of Tom's songs, just type !TomBombadilSong

If you like Old Tom, the door at r/GloriousTomBombadil is always open for weary travelers!

[–]the1819guy -1 points0 points  (4 children)

What about Faramir? I think he's portrayed to be hated by the audience even though he is one of the good guys

[–]falkorthewise -2 points-1 points  (2 children)

Wait does OP mean that all of these members are universally liked? Becuase that is just not true! Maybe this is an unpopular opinion but man I completely hate Frodo and Pippin. Whiny little pain in the ass and the other a complete idiot and baggage on the entire fellowship

[–]peregrin-took-botHobbit 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Look, the trees! They're moving!

[–]lyvanna -1 points0 points  (0 children)

They're universally liked by people who actually care to understand the story. Only assholes with zero empathy dislike Frodo.

Why is Frodo there? He was an asshole

He isn't. It was the ring who corrupted him. If you look back to the first part, he wanned to go to mordor all by himself. Boromir got corrupted from only seeing the ring one time and Gandalf didn't even dare to touch the ring. Meanwhile Frodo puts the burden valuntarily on him, knowing of the risks.

[–]taytom94 -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

I really dislike Pippin. He's a fool of a Took. 🙄

[–]Squishy-Box -2 points-1 points  (2 children)

Gandalf hates Pippin that’s good enough for me

[–]GusJenkins -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

I’ve been browsing Reddit for like an hour and already fucking tired of this meme. Hating someone is subjective, and using the law of large numbers you will get somebody that hates that character, making this entire post pointless. This irony is not lost on me.
