Merry and Pippin Doodles by xanykaos Merry and Pippin Doodles by xanykaos
I got to see the LotR musical (*cough*threetimes*cough*), and between that and rereading the books and finding they\'re even more powerful if you\'re far from home, well, my favourite hobbits were on my mind again.

Just some doodles of Pippin and Merry, again, done at work. And a tiny-wee grumpy Legolas at the bottom.

Huzzah for two of my favorite characters in the books. Were they special? NO! Were they in any way responsable for the events in the beginning? NO! Were they indebted to Frodo in any way to make them help him? NOO! They were just a pair of awesome cousins/friends who helped their buddy out when he needed it like air. They kept their spirits, they helped save the world, they were believable, fallable, and hilarious drunks, and they recovered in the end more than Frodo or Sam ever did. And come on, they have awesome names. I want to name my son Patrick and call him Pip, just because the Hobbit was the first 'real' chapter book I ever read as a child. Don't tell my husband. And a daughter named Madeline(Maddy).

EXACTLY why I love these guys. Especially Pip. I relate to him way too much, with the snark and spoiled nature, but the overall ... everything, really. He's my favourite character ever, and for all the reasons you named.

Patrick's such a great name...though if I had a kid named that, he'd be saddled with "Trick" as a nickname...I've had that in mind since reading Indian in the Cupboard when I was a wee kiddie (my first chapter book).

LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOOOOOVE!!!!

Merry & Pippin = :heart:

I saw LotR the musical. What I liked:
~ The set was absolutely gorgeous
~ Merry, Pippin, & Sam were awesome
~ The part where the Orcs come out into the audience
~ The song "Now and For Always"

Things that annoyed me:
~ How much they squished down the plot (I understand they had to cut a lot of it out)
~ Gandalf. Oh Gandalf and his random shouting mood swings...
~ Galadriel's hand motions
~ The Ents
~ Where was Eowyn????

But yes... MERRY AND PIPPIN FTW!!!!

Oh, "Now and For Always" made me cry. The orcs were awesome--I got menaced every single time. The first time, I think the whole balcony heard me shriek, because I did not see it coming. The final night, they were really playing it up too.

I hated the Gandalf, though. He made Michael Gambon Dumbledore look subtle and believable. And he couldn't say "you"--always "ya!" Galadriel's motions didn't bother me as much as her flutey voice did whenever she spoke. And omigosh, the Ents freaking spoke all rushed, and that was just ridiculous.

But my favourite bit, the reason I saw it three times, was Gollum. Oh man, Michael Therriault was just beyong amazing!

Yeah, the only time I saw it an orc popped out of no where, and my two friends and I shrieked loud enough for everyone to hear. And I'm glad to know that you also didn't like Gandalf (totally agree with you about the Micael Gambon comparison!) and the Ents. I will agree, Gollum did an awesome job in the show. :D
