More BOTFA Thoughts

I don’t know if this even needs saying but BOTFA SPOILERS AHEAD!

Tolkien Headcanons #2

And when she was on her deathbed, she asked him to sing her her favorite song and he did while trying to fight back tears.Their children watched from afar and softly sang along. And as Bard reached the last verse, she closed her eyes and smiled before taking her last breath.
He then finished the song before letting himself cry.
