Gifs help me see and appreciate small moments from movies/television shows that I never really noticed before. I’ve been giffing LOTR for a few years now and though it is extremely annoying and tedious (and makes my wrists feel like they’re breaking) I’ve discovered many new things and it made my love for those movies even stronger. So I’m just going to include from gifs from the trilogy that tug at my heart strings the most.
Aragorn’s coronation turns me into an emotional mess but to be fair I’m already an emotional mess by the time this scene happens. I only noticed this moment this year and it….it makes me want to cry. It looks like Elrond is saying “Go to him.” And he looks at her with so much love and sadness because he knows she and Aragorn truly love each other but he knows he will eventually need to leave her. And he won’t be there for the rest of her life, to see her children, to be able to spend time with his daughter and I’m going to cry. “None saw her last meeting with Elrond her father, for they went up into the hills and there spoke long together, and bitter was their parting that should endure beyond the ends of the world.” This post sums up my emotions pretty well.
