Aragorn VS Legolas


Title says it all!:) Legolas or Aragorn? I am somewhat undecided, my heart is telling me Legolas.....but not sure! The question is 'who do YOU like?' just curious! And's let's try to dicuss this in a kind manner:)
_____________________________

Gimli: Never thought I'd die fighting side by side with an elf!

Legolas: What about side side with a friend?
_____________________________

Aragorn: My friends, you bow to NO ONE.

Aragorn. There is no doubt in my mind. I can't see why anyone could like Legolas over Aragorn. I mean think about it, ARAGORN is the REAL hero!

*tries very hard not to scream at your comment*
I cannot STAND Aragorn until the end! I was so angry when he gave Arwen back the Evenstar! And he just crossed the line when he looked into the palantir. You say that he is the REAL hero, but that's just not true! Gandalf is the REAL hero. And then Frodo! You might say that Frodo would not have gotten far without Sam, well Aragorn would NOT have gotten far without Legolas!

You try my patience, Shieldmaiden.

Vanlanthiriel said...

Oh, and Legolas HATED Eowyn! YES! Another reason why you HAVE to love him!:)

White Lady said...

Legolas. NO QUESTION! He's so sweet.:)

Shieldmaiden said...

Well, I'm so sorry if I try your patience, but that's just how I feel. Legolas was just unfeeling, like when Boromir(your favorite character) dies, he has no emotion on his face whatsoever!

Vanlanthiriel said...

No emotion on his face!!!??? What are you talking about woman?? Have you lost your MIND!!?? There was nothing on that's man face except sorrow! Sometimes I want to slap you!

Anie Surion said...

Well, I like Aragorn AND Legolas. I don't see why we have to get angry about it....

EchoOfMercy said...

I like Legolas. He is So SWEET!:)

He does look so sorrowful when Boromir died almost like he might cry. And not to mention that he is AWESOME!:)

"Forgive me. I mistook you for Saruman"

Deleted quote
"Gandalf is no wizard in fact he is just the opposite"

Aragorn on the other hand he has his good and humble moments.

"The same weakness"

But most of the he is a prideful brat. Gandalf told Legolas that he(Legolas) was to be in charge if anything happened to him(Gandalf). And Aragorn knew this and didn't care.

"Hurry, Frodo and Sam have reached the eastern shore. You mean not to follow them."

"Frodo's fate is no longer in our hands."

Brat.

But I love how in the movie book after Aragorn says "Let's hunt some orc." Legolas thinks "Forgive him, Lord, he knows no what he speaks.:)

I mean come on how can you not like Legolas better. :)

Shieldmaiden said...

Alright, so maybe there was SOME emotion on his face, but he could have at least cried or something!

EchoOfMercy,

I don't believe Aragorn was a "prideful brat" I believe he was VERY humble!

"The same blood still flows in my veins,....the same weakness"

EchoOfMercy said...

Shieldmaiden,

Tolkien himself said that Aragorn was prideful. And I said in my comment that Aragorn did have his good moments. And at the end of RotK I absolutely love Aragorn so don't think that I hate him. I'm simply stating fact.:)

And Legolas was not that close to Boromir. And it's not as if Aragorn burst into tears either. :)

Vanlanthiriel said...

Shieldmaiden,

Oh, come on! You have to admit Aragorn had a LOT of pride!

"I do not fear death!" *implying that Legolas and Gimli DID!*

EchoOfMercy said...

Valanthiriel,

LOL! I know and "You WILL suffer me." LOL! :)

Though I do sorta feel sorry for him where in EE it shows him about to cry right outside the cave. :)

Vanlanthiriel said...

Yeah, and who is it that puts a comforting hand upon his shoulder....LEGOLAS! There is no reason NOT to like him unlike Aragorn *rolls eyes*

EchoOfMercy said...

YES! Amen!:)

Vanlanthiriel said...

But its not like I don't like him at the END:) I mean come on, who can't love him when he says "For Frodo" or "You bow to no one"? But most of the time he just bugged me throughout the trilogy. Like where he tells Arwen "It was a dream. Nothing More" And your right, he take Legolas's place as leader. Oh, and here's another one I hate...."He's not alone. Sam went with him. "

Oh, he makes me fume!

EchoOfMercy said...

Vanlanthiriel,

I know that quote bugs me to death. And "Havo dad, Legolas." I'm like "He was defending you, you jerk!" :) and "Legolas, get them up."

Shieldmaiden said...

I don't agree with anything that you all are trying to tell me! I am an Aragorn fan, I love Aragorn, and you guys can't stop me! I believe he was humble, and a VERY kingly man!

"I would have gone with you to the end. To the very fires of Mordor."

Vanlanthiriel said...

Oh, I am sick of talking to you!

*goes and counts to 100 before saying anything else*

Hidden Echo said...

LOL! Are you guys REALLY settling anything?:)

Shieldmaiden said...

Well, I was just trying to state my opinion, and these "people" are just trying to convince me otherwise. And I'm not sure why!

Shieldmaiden said...

Aragorn is just better, okay?

Vanlanthiriel said...

*covers ears*
Not listening. Not listening....

Shieldmaiden said...

Well, it looks like Aragorn wins then!:) *smiles to myself*

Vanlanthiriel said...

*smiles*

No

Shieldmaiden said...

Umm....excuse me?

Vanlanthiriel said...

I said no.

Shieldmaiden said...

Well, that's a fine solid argument!

Vanlanthiriel said...

I like to think so:)

Vanlanthiriel said...

I like how in the end of Return of the King, Aragorn tells LEGOLAS thank you.

Shieldmaiden said...

...And that proves that Aragorn was humble! Thank you for clearing that up for me, Vanlanthiriel!

EchoOfMercy said...

He was humble at the END! We have already stated that my goodness what do you want from us?

We've given you a solid argument and I will give you 3 more testimonies to his pridefulness.

1. Tolkien (You remember him don't you:)the one who wrote it:) He said that Aragorn was prideful. And if you say that that is only in the book I'll give you another one.

2. Peter Jackson.(the director) He said that Aragorn was full of himself.

3. Viggo Mortensen. (the actor who portrayed Aragorn) Even he said that he was prideful.

If you can't believe those three I guess it's just hopeless for you then.:)

Shieldmaiden said...

Alright, let's say Aragorn WAS prideful, does that mean I can't like him at the end? I believe at the end he was even more humble than Legolas. And that's how I feel.

EchoOfMercy said...

Shieldmaiden,

Though there's no way to prove that he was more humble than Legolas at the end, you're entitled to your opinion.:) And Aragorn was a sweetheart at the end.:)

White Lady said...

Well, Shieldmaiden, you ARE right on that one. Aragorn WAS more humble than Legolas in the end, its anyone's choice who their favorite character is, and its no one's responsibility to convince them otherwise. I am saying this in a sisterly way, but I believe you guys are both being a bit too smart in this debate, and Hidden Echo wants it to be a bit more Christlike.

White Lady

EchoOfMercy said...

White Lady,

You're right. Sorry, Shieldmaiden.
