Because there is absolutely no good reason to not reblog an Eomer tribute. Seriously.
And now you know why my avatar for at least two different sites is:
Because since when did Edward or Jacob ever take down a charging mumak with the throw of one spear? Make that two mumakil, actually, since the first crashed into another and brought them both down in a traffic jam of truly epic proportions.
One of these days I am going to have to rewatch The Two Towers and The Return of the King and COUNT the number of times Theoden looks at Eowyn, talks to her, or says her name, in comparison to the number of times he looks at Eomer, talks to him, or says his name. Or even appears in the same scene. Because I can think of all of two scenes off of the top of my head where that happens.
Seriously, Theoden ignored his nephew in the movies. I realize they wanted to give Eowyn some screen time, but HELLO! Just the next king of Rohan here, totally ignored by his uncle after being banished and coming back to save his life at Helm's Deep with only about 2000 Riders.
You'd think he'd get a, "Sorry I banished you," or something, at the very least.
No wonder he goes off to supervise a drinking contest between an Elf and a Dwarf. Probably the most attention he'll get from anyone all evening.
In Pace Christi,
