Lord of the Rings: a much darker story than you think it is.
The river Gollum achieved was the Great River and not the Brandywine River. At least that’s what Gandalf infers here:
” ‘…why didn’t he track Bilbo further?’ asked Frodo. ‘Why didn’t he come to The Shire?’ ‘Ah’ , said Gandalf, ‘now we come to it. I think Gollum tried to. Het set out and came back westward, as far as the Great River. But then he turned aside. He was not daunted by the distance, I am sure. No, something else drew him away.’ ”
At the other hand the dates may meet. Once Bilbo returned from his adventure at 2941 T.A. and Drogo Baggins and Primula Brandybuck died at 2980 T.A. (Frodo was 12). I don’t know, if it was real then gosh, how mindblowing would it actually be.. but for me it doesn’t sound plausible. But hey, that’s just me.
This puts a very new and very interesting perspective on things.
Lord of the Rings meme | 6/6 quotes
“Hold your ground, hold your ground! Sons of Gondor, of Rohan, my brothers! I see in your eyes the same fear that would take the heart of me. A day may come when the courage of men fails, when we forsake our friends and break all bonds of fellowship, but it is not this day. An hour of woes and shattered shields, when the age of men comes crashing down! But it is not this day! This day we fight! By all that you hold dear on this good Earth, I bid you stand, men of the West!”
