There's Something About OriIt's no news to Hobbit fans that the Extended Edition of The Desolation of Smaug came out a few weeks ago with 25 minutes of bonus scenes added to the film. I enjoyed those scenes as much as the next fan, but watching that version brought a rather amusing and puzzling trend to my attention. What makes that trend puzzling is that it centers around the character Ori.There's Something About Ori by KRRouse
For anyone not familiar with The Hobbit, Ori is one of thirteen dwarves that the hero Bilbo Baggins joins on a quest to reclaim their kingdom from a dragon. Even though Ori appears all throughout the book, he has no real personality to speak of and never gets a single line of dialogue. He's basically just there to be the thirteenth dwarf. His character is much more fleshed out and talkative in the movies, yet he still remains something of a featured extra.
But have you ever noticed how often he's right
Kili and Tauriel- The Battle of Five ArmiesI hurl my sword, landing it with a shunk in the side of an Orc’s head. Inky blood bursts into my eyes as an arrow whizzes by my ear. I pivot into a half-blind parry to fend another shot off. A massive goblin roars and lifts its mallot high, poised to smash my uncle to dust, but I drive my sword into its belly with a roar of my own and the tip of my blade noses out the other side. The creature falls, and I topple with it, still clinging to my deep-stuck hilt. I yank and heave on it, but my sword is wedged fast. I curse and sling one of Fili’s many spare swords from its scabbard on my back. Sweat turns the filth on my face to liquid and it seeps between my lips. Horrific shrieks threaten to blast me senseless, and I wipe away the blood on my palms.Kili and Tauriel- The Battle of Five Armies by titan-rising
Another monster barrels toward us, and in the distance great shadows are swooping down—
“KILI!” A scream rings out loud through the turmoil. A flash of copper hair, burning bright as the setting sun, darts
An Unexpected Visit - Part 12When Kíli and Thorin returned after their walk, they saw Fíli standing alone outside Kíli's chamber. He had a look of nervous anticipation, for Fíli knew he would have to discuss his decision with Thorin, and he was not entirely sure that his uncle would approve. He had, after all, given an elf the permission to come and go as he chose in their kingdom. It was the first time a dwarf had opened his home to an elf since Moria, when the city had been the trading ground for elves and dwarves alike, many ages ago. A flicker of hope had kindled in his heart that maybe there once again could exist such a place for elves and dwarves to come together in peace.An Unexpected Visit - Part 12 by Ingvild-S
«Fíli? Where is Legolas?» Thorin asked, his voice hard and his brows creased, as he handed Kíliel carefully back to her father's arms. Kíli accepted the bundle with a worried look as he waited for his brother to answer the question. They came closer to Fíli as they walked down the hall.
The Apprentice- Chapter 1Her mother never agreed to the ways of the elves. Neither did Anneth. She resented Thranduil for deserting the dwarves. She had no problem with them. Just like she had no problem running from her home in Mirkwood. Anneth rested her head on her knees, pulling the hood of her green cloak up. It fit snugly on her hair, cut short like a boy’s, and hid her pointed ears. Anneth closed her hazel eyes and breathed deeply, inhaling the forest smells around her.The Apprentice- Chapter 1 by onceuponawinchester
“Anneth!” A sharp voice jerked her out of her reverie. She turned, pulling the hood back off of her face to grin at the old figure behind her.
“My apologies, Gandalf. I was just thinking.”
“Daydreaming, more like,” the old wizard huffed. He switched his gnarled wooden staff to his other hand. “Now, come along. We must move quickly.” Anneth stood and straightened the green tunic she had pulled over tightly-fitted brown leggings and boots. She hurried to catch up with Gandalf, who
