We stopped checking for monsters under our beds when we realized they were inside us.
One day I’ll remember; I’ll remember everything that happened. The good, the bad. Those who survived. And those that did not.
Loki was never Odin’s son.
Loki was never Laufey’s son.
But Loki has and always will be Frigga’s son.

But! But but but!
Sam DOES follow, just not right away. Sam lives a long, prosperous, ridiculously happy life in Hobbiton with Rosie, with whom he has many children. He was mayor of Hobbiton SEVEN times until he retired at age 96, oversaw the establishment of the Shire as its own independent land, and was personally given the Star of the Dunedain by King Elessar as a gesture of friendship and love. But when Rosie passed away on Mid-Year’s day, Sam rode out from Bag End on September 22nd for the last time and finally followed Frodo to Valinor as the third and last Ringbearer to do so at the grand old age of 104.
He did exactly as Frodo asked him to. He was whole, and happy, and he enjoyed and did more than he could have ever imagined when he was a humble gardener listening in for tales of the Elves. And when he had lived out his life in peace and absolute happiness he earned his reward and followed Frodo home.
DON’T TOUCH ME OH MY ERU.
#he also pitched in on the red book#so lotr has all these kings and elves and all these lofty-ass people with humongous genealogic trees#but sam gamgee was right up there along with them#and his dad planted potatos#so you can go on a barge to heaven along with kickass elves to hang out with angels#even if your ancestry is entirely comprised of potato farmers#and the elves better listen to your spiel on the wonders of potatos#because you had the ring and freely handed it out#and those fuckers would have never been able to do that much#there’s no overstating how much of an amazing being sam gamgee was#thinking about it kinda makes me tear up even
Samwise Gamgee: Best character in the whole goddamn LoTR continuum.
One day, I shall come back. Yes, I shall come back.
Life depends on change and renewal.
Death is always more frightening when it strikes invisibly.
It’s the end, but the moment has been prepared for.
You may disguise your features but you can never disguise your intent.
Change, my dear. And it seems not a moment too soon.
Regeneration is a lottery, and I’ve drawn the short plank.
Friends, companions I’ve known, I salute you.
Of course, suppose it makes sense. Wearing a bit thin.
You were absolutely fantastic. And do you know what? So was I!
I don’t want to go.
I will always remember when the Doctor was me.
