My friends and I went camping this weekend, and someone proposed this question: What if the Nazgûl from Lord of the Rings fought with pillows instead of swords? Here’s my interpretation.
You gotta admit, they are still pretty terrifying.
Frodo is about to be injured by a Morgul feather pillow, a wound beyond Aragorn’s power to heal. He needs Elvish medicine to heal such a vicious blow.
The Hobbits tend to Frodo as Aragorn faces off against the Nazgûl with a fiery torch and his own trusty pillow. The fire is a lot more effective than just lighting the Ringwraiths on fire, especially if you can light the enemy’s own weapon on fire to disarm him.
As you can imagine, this got my mind thinking about making all swords in Lord of the Rings into pillows. Gandalf’s trusty pillow Glamdring, the tattered shreds of Narsil, resewn into the mighty pillow Andúril for the one true king of Gondor. I imagine Sting as one of those little sofa pillows, not fit for a man but perfectly sized for a Hobbit.

So, thus far, my blog has really only been my own creations. I really want to show you some things I think are totally awesome, but I want to preface it by saying I DID NOT MAKE ANY OF THESE. I’ve decided that, in order to differentiate my own work from other people’s (besides the watermark I put on my stuff), I’m going to lump them all together by topic so that it’ll be an awesome little digest of something awesome that I love. I’ve tried to credit the original authors if possible, or at least the site where I got the images from. I’m sorry if I don’t credit someone correctly, because the internet is a scary place full of people stealing other people’s creative property and not giving credit, so if I’m actually citing someone who ripped off your work, I’m very, very sorry. Now here we go!
