LOTR 30 Day Challenge -Question #12: Favorite Location



My favorite location is Rohan
Edoras  

I especially love the scene when the Aragorn, Legolas, Gimli and Gandalf approach the city and that wide expanse of land with the snow capped mountains in the background. I have to control myself from bursting out into song: "The Hills Are Alive with the Sound of Music". 


The very helpful http://lotr.wikia.com/wiki/Edoras tells us it was filmed in "Mount Sunday in the upper reaches of the Rangitata Valley, near Erewhon" in lovely New Zealand.




In this video by jediking12 we can look at Rohan while listening to the Rohan Fanfare, by the amazing Howard Shore, from the Two Towers.

LOTR 30 Day Challenge - Question #11: BROTP




Urban Dictionary - BROTP:  Similar to OTP, this refers to a set of best friends in a show, book or movie who are destined to be best friends forever.


(Yep, had to look this one up also)

When I looked up BROTP in the dictionary my choice was clear



Aragorn and Boromir




 What would have happened if Boromir had lived? I have to think that he would have been a loyal friend and companion to Aragorn on their quest. The sons of Gondor would have come home together



Sean Bean and Viggo Mortensen are friends in real life as well

LOTR 30 Day Challenge - Question #10: OTP




True Confessions - I had to look up OTP

According to the Urban Dictionary
OTP: One True Pairing. Meaning your favorite combination of characters in a fandom. RON and Hermione are /so/ OTP.

(Urban Dictionary has pages of different definitions of OTP, but we'll go with their first one)




My OTP would be Eowyn and Faramir

LOTR 30 Day Challenge- Question #9: Favorite Hobbit


This is a difficult question. I love all the hobbits of Middle-earth, especially our brave and intrepid fabulous four and dear old Bilbo.

But there is one among them who volunteers to take the One Ring to its destruction in the fires of Mount Doom. 

Frodo Baggins





Is my Favorite Hobbit

LOTR 30 Day Challenge - Question #7: Favorite Antagonist



Saruman

Can an antagonist be a "favorite"? 

Played by the great Christopher Lee in the LOTR films, he is power mad and will stop at nothing and destroy everyone to achieve his evil ambitions. 

But like all good actors, Lee makes you, if only for a few moments in his encounter with Gandalf, believe he is a wise being. Then comes that look in his eyes and we know how wrong we have been all along, and how truly evil is Saruman's heart.
