As told in "The Tale of Aragorn and Arwen", Aragorn in his twentieth year met Arwen for the first time in Rivendell, where he lived under Elrond's protection. Arwen, then over 2700 years old, had recently returned to her father's home after living for a while with her grandmother Lady Galadriel in Lórien. Aragorn fell in love with Arwen at first sight. Some thirty years later, the two were reunited in Lórien. Arwen reciprocated Aragorn's love, and on the mound of Cerin Amroth they committed themselves to marry one another. After the War of the Ring, Aragorn became king of Arnor and Gondor. Arwen arrived at Minas Tirith, and they were married. Her few appearances in the book suggest that Arwen is a minor character in The Lord of the Rings; but she serves as inspiration and motivation for Aragorn, who, as Elrond stipulated, must become King of both Arnor and Gondor before he could wed her. The Tale of Aragorn and Arwen relates that Arwen had a son, Eldarion, and at least two unnamed daughters by Aragorn. In F.A. 121, one year after Aragorn's death, at the age of 2901 she gave up her life at Cerin Amroth.

As the King of Rohan.Théoden was growing weak with age, and was largely controlled by his chief advisor Gríma, who was secretly in the employ of the corrupt wizard Saruman. In Unfinished Tales, it is implied that Gríma was accelerating the king's decline with "subtle poisons". As Théoden sat powerless, Rohan was troubled by Orcs and Dunlendings, who operated under the will of Saruman, ruling from Isengard.
When his son Théodred was mortally wounded at a battle at the Fords of Isen, Théoden's nephew Éomer became his heir. However, Éomer was out of favour with Wormtongue, who eventually had him arrested.
When Gandalf the White and Aragorn appeared before him , Théoden initially rebuffed the wizard's advice to ride out against Saruman. When Gandalf revealed Wormtongue for what he was, however, Théoden returned to his senses. He restored his nephew, took up his sword Herugrim, and in spite of his age, led the Riders of Rohan into the Battle of the Hornburg. After this he became known as Théoden Ednew, the Renewed. I think my next work will be in Hornburg.haha
I'll fill in the hairy feet later, but I figured I'd better upload now to be timely. Bilbo travels to Rivendell in the spring, and it's June when he reaches Elrond's house. Before he does, he and the dwarves are captured by hungry, marauding trolls. Gandalf comes to the rescue and after the trolls are petrified, Bilbo finds an old Elvish dagger (a sword to him) and he dubs it "Sting".
Rankin Bass produced their version of "The Hobbit" in 1977, a flawed, but somehow endearing TV special. The designs for the characters are often jaw-dropping in their complexity--check out all the contours and wrinkles in Bilbo's jacket alone. But like a lot of Rankin Bass, the designs proved too tough to animate with the proper life. Movements were stiff.
They made up with camera angles and special effects and some effective voice-casting. (Except for a bushel of all-too-familiar Hanna-Barbera players which kinda dragged it down)
Too big to fit on my scanner--this finished version of an earlier WIP had to be carefully photographed; it consisted of two sheets of paper attached diagonally. Well, Orcrist has a hilt worthy of an Elvish blade.
Rankin Bass presents the "Goblin Cleaver" as a fairly narrow two-edged sword straight along the hilt and the blade. Its latest interpretation is more of a cutlass. I prefer Orcrist looking like a smaller version of Glamdring.
Thranduil the King of the Wood Elves confiscated Orcrist in Mirkwood, leaving Thorin to battle without a magic sword. Only when Thorin was in his grave was it returned to him. One wonders if he would have lasted longer if Thranduil had given it back before the goblins showed up...
As of June 6, 2014, Casey Kasem is still alive, but is described as seriously ailing and low. While Shaggy is his most popular cartoon voice, it isn't his only one and while thinking up a fitting tribute, I turned away from Saturday morning and looked first at doing a Peter Cottontail. While roaming in Rankin Bass land, I remembered he also spoke for Merry the Hobbit in "Return of the King" and voila, there was the character.
Remembering how loud and emotional Casey once was, I needed an anguished moment to sum it all up--and when I studied Théoden's death scene, I saw it.

Direwolf is sigil of house Stark from A Song of Fire nad Ice by G. R. R. Martin. It's described as ruuning, grey direwolf on ice-white field, but I like the design from Game of Thrones TV show, so the direwolf itself is from series, field supposed to be like from book (without that green part, wchich is on the banners in show), but i took wrong color of thead and it's actually more yellow-white, than ice-white. Anyway I'm proud of how it came out.
