Can you believe that it’s nearly been a year since I began this endeavor? No joke. My first day was July 27th, and we’re rapidly approaching that. Much has happened since that day, in Middle-earth and elsewhere.
But let’s talk about clothes!
Aside from the lembas, the elves give the Fellowship cloaks. These cloaks are made of a light material, and will camouflage anyone in almost any circumstance. Sounds like the exact thing one would expect to come out of Lothlórien! With that, they are ready to go, and Haldir arrives to be their guide once again.
-the Northern Fences: The northern borders of Lothlórien, as if that was surprising. Haldir has been guarding them for as long as the Fellowship has been in Lothlórien. He must be important or something.
But what do I mean about the cloaks being expected of Lothlórien? Well, the power of Galadriel’s ring is protection. These cloaks are the essence of protection. They will blend in with wood, stone, grass…and seemingly anything. That’s not a typical attribute of clothing. Add to that the fact that Galadriel and her personal servants made these themselves, and you’ve certainly got some magic going on. It’s not even a question.
Fellowship of the LATE: 95 pages
I’m not the only one anymore. EVERYONE wants the Fellowship to be named. And by “EVERYONE”, I mean other people, too. At least one other person has vocalized their displeasure with the length of time needed to name the Fellowship. I am not alone!
On a completely divergent side note, let it be known that I WILL manage to write these blog posts everyday. I have not failed as of yet, and I have no intention to do so anytime soon. I have no fear that I will triumph in my task.
Fear cuts deeper than swords.
So, lembas and cloaks, what next? Sounds like the elves of Lothlórien are outfitting the Fellowship quite well!
Words My Computer Didn’t Like:
I BLAME THE ENGLISH! For all of this mockery of words ending in -or. All of it.
