The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies…No spoilers!

Well…I finally got around to seeing the above movie title “The Hobbit…The battle of five armies”…What can I say? I am emotionally drained. While I don’t want to give to much away, I mean it must have affected me in some way, I feel really emotionally drained. The only other time that I’ve felt like this was after break ups. I guess though it is more than likely the end of an era. I keep randomly bursting into tears.

I realised a little while ago as well, all of these JRR Tolkien, Peter Jackson movies have been around in some form or another for HALF my life. I guess when something has been in your life for that long, I guess it does feel like a little like I have to “let it go”. I mean how often is anything these days in your life for half your life. I mean how marriages started and ended during 2001 and ?lol.

I have to say that I enjoy it, I did feel though like a lot of others it seems, there were just some scenes that should have been left as it had originally written. I don’t even mind the whole love triangle thing right up until it killed a scene that really should have been between two other major characters that were actually in the book.

It’s just so weird though! I feel SO drained, I think unless you’ve felt like this it is hard to explain. Can you be in love with a fictional character? Can a fictional character truly represent everything you want in a man…or dwarf in this case. Even with all of his faults, there is something about Thorin Oakenshield that I am completely and utterly in love, and that’s what it feels like, I can’t help it. I am a 30 year old women, it feels totally crazy to feel like this. Richard Armitage as Thorin Oakenshield makes me feel like somehow being human and not being apart of the world that is Middle Earth, I am lost here. I don’t fit in here, I fit in there…Yet, it is totally not reality.

On a completely different subject, completely loved Legolas!

The times they are a-changing

Having a conversation with a good girlfriend tonight and we are shocked…repeat SHOCKED…by the amount of guys that are in relationships and/or married that hit on us. Both my girlfriend and I are single and these “respectable taken” men are not helping the cause. There are a few things that make me really mad about it:

  1. How can you call my ex a douche when you’re doing what you’re doing? He didn’t make promises of marriage or anything close to that.
  2. Most…in fact, pretty much all of them…claim to be bi-sexuals…I’m not sure if they think that they gives them a special permission to hit on other people while married or something?
  3. What makes them think I’d ever go for a married man to begin with? I never have and never would…I am not desperate and there are a lot more guys out there that are not someone’s sloppy seconds.
  4. What makes me angriest the most though…My brother is gay, my cousin is gay…Yet these…Wankers…are able to get married and STILL hit on single people, like myself.
  5. I have not seen ONE of them hit on a guy…Just single girls…But this is who Christians really want representing them?…Really? Both my brother and cousins have been in long term committed relationships and neither one has ever been accused of straying. Yet, they can’t marry and these guys can.
  6. You never hear of their partners being bi-sexual…Amazing, isn’t it.

All these guys are doing is harming myself and my girlfriends and relationships in general. We are single for a reason and these guys are a huge part of that. I can think of maybe one or two couples who don’t seem to do this.

We obsess over characters like Thorin and Thor and Mr Darcy because the truth is, to find a decent guy (I still believe that they are out there still) is getting harder and harder to find. These guys damage the rest of you guys and put single girls like me off.

Fantasy Men…mmm…~.^

One of the best things about being single again is being able to divulge in our little fantasies without feeling to bad or feeling like one is being disrespectful to their partner. If you press this link you can see the picture that is on my PC desktop as a wallpaper background, it makes me grin before bedtime. Thorin “Will You Join Me” Deviantart Artist:MoonFangs I would put the picture up, but there are VERY strict rules when it comes to this particular picture.

When ever I am going through a particularly rough break up or had a huge crush on someone and they choose someone else, I tend to focus on my fantasy men. Anything that I may have imagined with that particular boyfriend/ex/crush, there image is taken over by one of my “fantasy men”. I find it extremely helpful and I find it helps me move on. I don’t know why, I can’t explain of why thinking of someone I don’t know or some make believe character helps me to move on from a “real” person, but it does. Maybe it’s because I’m not thinking about them 24/7 instead… Or you know…I’m just crazy =P

 

 

Thorin Oakenshield

Well since I am seeing “The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug” for the second time in Gold Class (cannot wait!) I thought it might be appropriate to talk about one of my favourite characters. I have read both the book and the, as mentioned before, this will be my second time seeing the second film…No Spoilers!lol

Thorin Oakenshield is a fictional character from J.R.R Tolkiens book “The Hobbit”. It was first released in 1937 and is the ‘prequel’ to the “Lord of the Rings” books. Thorin is one of the leading characters in “The Hobbit” and is the leader of a company of Dwarves who are planning to take back their home, the Lonely Mountain, from the Dragon Smaug. Thorins name “Oakenshield” was given to him after fighting against orcs in the Battle of Azanulbizar, with a length of oak shielding him.

Thorin is probably what you call a “Tragic Hero”. He loses a lot of immediate family and he is determined in all of his causes and is a strong and true fighter. Though no matter what successes he has, they always seem to come undone and these situations make Thorin withdrawn and seemingly cut off with only one thing on his mind. Reclaim his home and throne!

On a personal note, I always very surprised that I developed a ‘crush’ on Thorin. I normally go for the goofy character and Thorin just seems so grumpy. I think though Thorin came into my life when I was cut off from the world and was also resisting letting anyone in. Yet at the same time I became almost over protective of those who had been hurt. There was one YouTube video that I discovered when I was in a bad way that I instantly related to in terms of Thorin representing how I was feeling and the video was pretty much showing what was going on in my mind at the time. With Thorins determination and will to fight the Pale Orc, the pale orc is about 3-4 times bigger than Thorin…kind of like my ex,lol…I am also extremely stubborn,lol.
