ABOUT THIS OAKENTOON

Oh Aragorn... if only you'd remember about a certain elf maid in your Fellowship! :facepalm:

Or taken your elvish girlfriend instead of him, mwahahoot!

So here's an Oakentoon about the scene you keep asking me about - Tauriel healing Kili. Didn't expect "The Fellowship of the Ring", eh? Now I have nothing against the whole Tauriel-Kili romance (what happens in the dungeons isn't *that* bad) but up to a point - and that point was the healing scene, a sacrilege in so many ways, at least in my humble opinion - a scene I refuse to accept, a scene I'd like to forget and a scene I shall never forgive.

And the mischievous thought which came into my head then said: "Boromir took three and he didn't even wince!"

But he was a Man of Gondor, not a Descendant of the House of Durin ... :meow:

Well in Kili's (assuming he is the warrior that took an arrow to the knee that Boromir referenced) defence the arrow he was hit with was coated in poison that was allowed to circulate in his system for at least a day, if not more

I thought the healing scene was so romantic!



until Tauriel began to SHINE...

That made me crack up so bad in the cinema, you could wipe me from the floor, I swear I have laughed so hard. THAT was terrible.

ugh.

She looked so stupid xDD Arwen looked great, but with Tauriel i always have to laugh xD

Same!!! I was sort of inwardly cringing a bit haha, but then when I rewatched Lord of the Rings, I noticed that the first time Frodo sees arwen (when he is stabbed by the morgul blade), she appears all shiny too. Either its because arwen is the evenstar or that maybe elves just shine when you've been stabbed with a morgul weapon?O_o

Well, in book, when he is in that altered state of consciousness, he sees his pursuers as black pieces of darkness, his companions as some grey something and Glorfindel as glowing, so there is some basis to it.

Ahahaha!!! That could be it! :D

A friend of mine (really big fan of the Hobbit) was really annoyed by Tauriel's weird murmuring and compared the healing scene to soft ... adult entertainment. Ahem. Giggle

Awww come on, it was a POISONOUS arrow....


PS: Leogolas you're late, Boromir's dead already, you should have come sooner. Rage

Oh well, let's finally face it:
If Tauriel can do what Elrond can do, then these two must have much more in common than meets the eye.
Could it be that Elrond, in his younger days (say, some 600 years ago) had a lovely Mirkwood mistress...?

Better theory! Noldo ancestors! We know of at least of three ginger elves from Valinor who roamed Middle-earth, of which two had some connection to wood elves and one had a hand (intentional, I am horrible) in bringing up Elrond. It must be that! :happybounce: EVIL Laughter!

I'm pretty sure that the whole healing scene 'we need Athleas, we don't have any but we feed it to the pigs' actually comes from the Return of the King (book) where Aragorn heals Eowyn and Merry from being stabbed with the Witch-King's Morgol blade. As PJ cut it from the ROTK film, he decided to bring it to the Hobbit.

Yop, you are right.

Oh, C'MON! It was a Morgul shaft! You can't blame him for being poisoned! Achilles got shot in the fucking foot and HE bit it, didn't he? :D

Also, I have nothing against KilliXTauriel. My only complaint is that "he's tall for a dwarf" comment, it doesn't fit Tauriel's character. Otherwise, she's displaying some friendly affection and concern. Her face when Killi starts hallucinating and confessing on Bard's house shows she's confused and didn't expect THAT! I don't know, the writers seem to be going back and forth with the "Red String Strangling" of movies.

But as far as we know, Lurtz wasn't using Morgul Arrows. Plus, it took Kili a good long while to start falling apart.
I have a theory that only female Elves are taught healing magic. Otherwise, I'm sure Legolas would know it and use it several times over. Also, I think Tauriel isn't from Mirkwood, but rather from another Elf Kingdom, probably Galadriel's. Mirkwood Elves seem a little less... well, Beorn said "less wise", so let's just go by that and leave it at that.

I have to imagine that the whole healing scene was actually a mockery of the whole Kili/Tauriel ship made by a drunk intern swapping out pages of the script. Like, one of them just said "hey, you know what would totally happen if a 14-year old were writing this?" and then it ended up in the movie. I refuse to believe otherwise, you cannot convince me that someone wanted us to take that scene seriously.

Legolas : "Why do I feel useless ?"
Only she-elf knows how to use athelas in Smirkwood... Sad isn't it ?

The entirety of the Tauriel/Kili situation was ver off-putting for me, and part of the reason I didn't enjoy the movie as a whole. The healing scene was the last straw; sacrilege, as you said. :P

At the very least Smaug was awesome. (But the scenes PJ added of him were not so awesome.)
