To continue the celebration of Tolkien Week, I'd like to share my favorite race in Tolkien's world! I don't mean anything bad by it. I mean to say, what race of character would you be if you lived in Tolkien's world? Would you be a man (from Gondor or Rohan), dwarf, elf, orc, or hobbit?
Though it is tempting to enjoy six meals a day, take naps, and have hairy feet... I would love to be an elf.
Elves are incredibly graceful and patient. They are immortal and wisest of all. I love their beautiful clothing and the architecture in their buildings. Did I mention I would love perfect hair all the time? I would love to live in the trees of Lothlorien or in Rivendell, among the waterfalls and the leaves. My favorite elf is Haldir. I know. Shock, it's not Legolas. I do love Legolas's character and Orlando Bloom is smocking hot, but Haldir is my favorite elf. He is loyal and honorable. I only wish there was more with his character in the films. His death scene moves me to tears every time I see it. He fought with men and died with them. The last thing he sees is the bodies of his own company and it is heart-breaking.
What is your favorite race in Tolkien's Middle Earth? And which race would you choose to be?
