“And what gift would a Dwarf ask of the Elves?”
“Nothing… except to look upon the lady of the Galadhrim one last time, for she is more fair than all the jewels beneath the earth.”

Day 5 of #TolkienWeek is #ThorinThursday. Being dwarves-themed, of course I bring #Gimli back for one of the most wonderful moments in #MiddleEarth history. It’s lovely enough of a thought that he became absolutely smitten by #Galadriel of #Lothlórien to begin with, but then for Gimli ask for a strand of her hair, AND TO RECEIVE THREE! Oh, my heart. It’s so beautiful. I mean, in addition to being a big, shiny “screw you” to #Fëanor, it’s easily one of the best moments of #Elf/#Dwarf friendship ever. And if you thought the #FotR film version of Gimli’s words was cute enough, his a-dwarf-ableness *truly* shows in the unabridged dialogue in the book.:
‘And what gift would a Dwarf ask of the Elves?’ said Galadriel turning to Gimli.
‘None, Lady,’ answered Gimli. ‘It is enough for me to have seen the Lady of the Galadhrim, and to have heard her gentle words.’
‘Hear all ye #Elves!’ she cried to those about her. `Let none say again that #Dwarves are grasping and ungracious! Yet surely, Gimli son of Glóin, you desire something that I could give? Name it, I bid you! You shall not be the only guest without a gift.’
‘There is nothing, Lady Galadriel,’ said Gimli, bowing low and stammering. ‘Nothing, unless it might be – unless it is permitted to ask, nay, to name a single strand of your hair, which surpasses the gold of the earth as the stars surpass the gems of the mine. I do not ask for such a gift. But you commanded me to name my desire.’
Galadriel then goes on about Dwarven skill being in their hands rather than their tongues, but for Gimli, it wasn’t true. He didn’t even straight up ASK for a strand of her golden hair, he just named it being something he would wish to have. THEN he goes on to compare her to all the treasures of the world. Forreals, those were some choice words, Gimli, you sweet-talkin’ beardy boy. #TolkienCollectors#TolkienCollection#actionfigures #Tolkien#LotR#JRRTolkien#BagginsBirthdayBash#FellowshipOfTheRing#TheLordOfTheRings#LordOfTheRings
