THEY FUCKING WENT THERE.
A gif set about Elrond
This part right here is what always gets me in the return of the king scene. Not the “My friends you bow to no one,” or the fact that Aragorn has finally become who he was born to be. No, it’s Elrond’s face. Look at him. That is a man who knows he is never going to see his daughter again, that she is going to die and leave him forever. And while he’s devastated at that thought, he doesn’t care because this is exactly what Arwen wants. He is happy that she is happy, even if it means she won’t be in his life any more. He’d rather know that she lived several more decades of happiness than watch her live several more millennia of sadness. You can always count on me crying when Elrond shows up with this face.
Elrond in this scene is so important to me, and I have never seen a post dedicated to him here. My whole motivation for learning to make gifs was to make this gif set, and I’m pretty damn proud of these being my first gifs.
And shout out to Hugo Weaving for giving what might be the best performance in the entire trilogy during this scene alone.
the dog all puppies aspire to be
he did it
he caught the tail
his face just says “what am i going to do with my life now”
This is 10x funnier if you read it in their voices
