OH MY GOD!How come I saw this gif so often and never realized the MEANING OF IT?!?!?
Guys, don’t you see that? There’s someone (!) holding up Gloin’s picture of his wife (a someone with beautiful hands …). You see Gloin himself covered with spider webs and some other pair of (beautiful) hands handling the dwarves in the background.
I DARE SAY this someone is our dear Legolas! Because …
COULD THIS BE the scene described in my The Hobbit Weta Workshop Chronicles where Legolas’ takes Gloin’s picture and asks who this ugly creature is?
COULD THIS BE the first glimpse we get from the dwarves being captured in Mirkwood?
OMG. Can’t. breathe. right. now.
COULD THIS BE?
OH MY FUCKING FUCK
but OH MY GOD I JUST CAN’T
because if that’s Legolas he doesn’t know it yet but that’s Gimli’s father
and Gimli isn’t even a little dwarvish twinkle in his parent’s eyes but omfg he and Legolas are going to be like brothers only closer
and they’re going to fight side by side at Helm’s Deep and at Pelennor Fields and Morannon and then when the war is done they’re going to travel across Middle-Earth together
and then when Legolas sails to Valinor Gimli is going to come with him and they’re best friends forever
but omfg Legolas just has no idea
and i’m having a lot of feels
