If there's a key...
Heya! Key here. This is a multi-fandom blog, though expect to see reams of Tolkien, Richard Armitage and Martin Freeman. And plenty of miscellaneous crazy, 'cause that's how we roll in the the Lonely Mountain.

This blog makes nsfw posts
(which is more of an enticement than a warning, really)

idk there’s always time for sad old bilbo feels, i think.

you can’t stop me from thinking that Bilbo visited Thorin’s tomb after he went to the Lonely Mountain

I just have to respond to your tag on your op because canon is even more heart-crushing than this.

Bilbo left the Shire with every intention of revisiting Erebor, but he got as far as Dale and couldn’t go on. He lived in rebuilt Dale for two years before he finally left for Rivendell, where he lived out the rest of his days until his departing at the Gray Havens.

Bilbo never saw the inside of Erebor and Thorin’s tomb again, because he couldn’t. 



Cate Blanchett, who plays ethereal elf Lady Galadriel in ‘Lord of the Rings’, instead wanted to be a dwarf on the movie adaptation of JJR Tolkien’s books. The 45-year-old ‘Lord of the Rings’ reprised her role in ‘The Hobbit’. Blanchett, however, said she was disappointed for not getting a chance…

Argh! Now I desperately NEED to see Cate Blanchett as Dis.

PJ, if you were going to introduce a brand-new character, why couldn’t it have been Dis?

Powerful kickass female character? Check. Seriously missed opportunity.

Cate Blanchett was desperate to play dwarf in ‘The Hobbit’

Cate Blanchett, who plays ethereal elf Lady Galadriel in ‘Lord of the Rings’, instead wanted to be a dwarf on the movie adaptation of JJR Tolkien’s books. The 45-year-old ‘Lord of the Rings’ reprised her role in ‘The Hobbit’. Blanchett, however, said she was disappointed for not getting a chance to dress up as one of the hairy mythical creatures in the film trilogy, reported Contactmusic.

"I was so desperate to play a dwarf. The facial hair. You go into the wig room. Oh my god. The beard," she said.

Just imagine Dis as played by Cate the Great omgggggg


I’ve got to admit I don’t think Richards American accent is all that good. It sounds a bit dodgy and you can definitely tell he’s English, it’s rather inconsistent.

I’m most amused and confused that they opted to use the accent of the state where the movie was filmed, Michigan, rather than the state where the film takes place, Oklahoma. 

I thought his accent was generally good (for Michigan *g*), he just slips and over-pronunciates a few times. I thought it was a great first go.

Celebrity Crushes: Richard Armitage

"I guess there’s a dangerous place, my own darkness, that I don’t access in life but have the ability to go ‘alright, just for this role, I’ll just open this door and have a peek.’."


Fossilised bones of a dinosaur believed to be the largest creature ever to walk the Earth have been unearthed in Argentina, palaeontologists say.

Based on its huge thigh bones, it was 40m (130ft) long and 20m (65ft) tall.

Weighing in at 77 tonnes, it was as heavy as 14 African elephants, and seven tonnes heavier than the previous record holder, Argentinosaurus.

Scientists believe it is a new species of titanosaur - an enormous long-neck herbivore dating from the Late Cretaceous period.  They unearthed the partial skeletons of seven individuals - about 150 bones in total - all in “remarkable condition”


War? War.

Erebor Lego set

After I posted a pic last week, I’ve had a few asks for more pics of the Erebor Lego set that premiered at SDCC. I didn’t have a chance to answer them, but I did grab a few more pics the next time I was on the exhibitor floor.

The set itself consists of two walls of Erebor. One wall includes what appears to be a winding device of some sort, and the other wall includes the throne.


Smaug, with the wall that includes the throne in the background.


The second wall with the mechanics or whatever they are. That’s Balin on the second tier. What I found interesting there was that Balin was holding a key that isn’t Thorin’s key. Also, it was hard to tell, but he didn’t appear to have new clothing like the rest of the dwarves. Also of note is the lonely helmet. The Bilbo here is wearing his mithril shirt.


Thorin and Dwalin wearing the armor we see them wearing in the teaser trailer. Thorin is standing near the throne.


Another angle on the mechanics wall. Throne (with Arkenstone?? It was hard to tell) wall in the background. Oh yes, and Fili atop the throne wall with armor and two swords.

Price on the set was $129.99. Releasing in October. It looks so awesome! I wish I could’ve got better pics but the Lego booth is so busy all the time.
