>XD!! Best. Scene. With Gollum. EVER!!! *Laughs warmly* I could almost embrace the poor creature! At least I know it brings genuine warmth to me. Oh, what a funny moment! So much needed after that first long reach of their journey! It's a shame he is so wretched, Gollum, because he -is- dear in some ways, I think even to other readers. *Smiles and shrugs* Perhaps it is only me.

And there it ends! And the greatest cliffhanger yet! Tolkien, you are great at these! But now, still my speech! Let me review this, for my mind is full of many, many thoughts. Much has been done, and much still needs be done. And I am eager...eager to meet those I love once more. So! To the review!

*Lowers her head and gently feels a sting in her eyes* ...I want, in this small moment, more than anytime else, to save this poor creature. He has been wrought and tormented beyond his asking, changed from the warm and loved folk we give so much heart to, into this: into Gollum. But in this moment... *Inhales deeply* ...pity turns to love, and I care for him. Poor Smeagol...poor thing. Thank you again, Tolkien.

I remember this part. Of all the horrible and terrible things they passed through, this small, chance scene is one of the ones that gives me hope, and great strength. I don't know why... I don't feel even they know, and yet, it is warming, and gives hope in the midst of terror and despair. *Smiles with warmth* The King again has a crown...yes, soon... Until then, thank you, and farewell, fair vision!

And now he leaves! Faramir, even in parting your words are of sunlit days and warm meetings. You, noble as kings, and fair in your trust and concern, will ever be in my heart. *Lowers her head in respect* You are worth the praises unsung, and I wait endlessly for the time in which we meet again. But that will not be till the next book.... Till then, in that case! We will meet once more. Now, I follow Frodo.

*Bows her head in respect and adoration* Faramir, it is for things like this that you have captured my heart, only the second Man to do so in this great series. But it makes my heart weep and despair! They did not do you as near the justice you deserved in the movies! No, they ruined you, I feel, though they tried to repair you in the end. Still, for this moment, you are great in my love, at the end of Chapter Five.

*GASP* EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! FARAMIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIR!!!!!! -- Can you tell we've come to a point where there's yet ANOTHER character I love?! >XD OH. MY. GOODNESS, THOUGH! Faramir perhaps captures my heart as strong as do Aragorn and Gandalf!! They are wonderful, but Faramir! Faramir!! He is noble and strong and true to his word, and caring and tender, wonderful and kingly. He is a man amongst Men. <3

I always wondered at this change in Frodo here.... He seemed...not like himself, and yet still held a fragment of the hobbit I knew and cared for. But he has changed...changed strangely. When he is not pressed in on all sides by darkness and weariness, his moments of speech are -strong-...strong and unquenchable in their force. He...to this day, I don't know if it is the Ring, but I feel it is perhaps an inner power.

*Gags and turns her face away, covering her mouth* Oh God.... That place! *Shudders and feels sick* ...Tolkien has a way of making you -feel- your environments, and oh God! Did he do a job of this! *Shudders again* ...this vast, disgusting wasteland.... I never thought any -land- could instill me with -hatred-, but this place is vile and terrible. How miserable! That they have to BE in it!

Here I remember it...the dread and concern, like a plague, rising up to fill my heart with an emotion so very close to fear. Fear for Frodo, for what he carries...but mostly for how it affects him. It is startling, and mortifying to think of how even now, so powerful, the Ring bends and twists him, trying to break him...always gnawing away at him. If it wasn't for Sam...how could he ever have hope to survive?

It's funny. I do feel pity and disgust over Gollum. He's a miserable creature, and was wrought and tormented by the Ring to become this. Yet he still brings to me a tender smile, because of things he says, things he does, that make me feel that had he been himself, he would have been a great companion and friend to them. Yet now, all I can say is that my heart cares for him, but it cannot find room to trust/love him.
