LoTR is basically the Bible of fantasy. Questioning its perfection in this holy shrine of neckbeards is like going into a church and suggesting that Jesus didn't really come back from the dead.

>> No.55475107

I think it's mostly because it was a bit of a stupid phrase. I'd say it's self-evident to anybody who likes LotR that its appeal is not in tax policy, so for GRRM to bring it up like that in a way that could be made to sound like criticism took off like a rocket, both in response to perceived, stupid critique and also just in response to how silly of an idea it was.

Hey orcs,
My name is Aragorn, and I hate every single one of you. All of you are corpulent, foolish, morgul-rats who spend every second of their day looking at stupid ass pictures. You are everything bad with Middle-Earth. Honestly, have any of you ever gotten wed? I mean, I guess it’s fun mocking people because of your own failings, but you all take to a whole new level. This is even worse than slavishly obeying the Dark Tower.
Don’t be a stranger. Just hit me with your best shot. I’m pretty much perfect. I was a ranger of the north, and veteran of countless battles. What victories can you claim, other than “slavishly obey the will of the Dark Lord”? I am also a wise scholar, and have an elven wife(She just wed me; Shit was SO Silmarils). You are all uruks who should seek redeption. Thanks for listening.

Recommend playing as Galadriel.

Acquire the One Ring

Start wars of conquest (by whatever CB) to bring all of elfdom under your rule

Try and have children so if your newly conquered vassals get funny ideas you can replace them with loyal children.

Let Arwen marry Aragorn. You might be able to press a weak as fuck claim for Gondor at some point given that Arwen is your granddaughter.

Once your rule over all the elves is secure start taking back the world.

Start with the orcish lands and the lands of wicked men first so it's more likely you can rope the other kingdoms into helping (dying for) you.

Eventually, once all your human friends and allies are long since dead through time or other means, take their lands.

Don't stop the conquest train until you are the undisputed Empress of all Middle-Earth.

What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little bitch? I’ll have you know I graduated top of my house in the Ñoldorin army, and I’ve been involved in numerous secret raids on Mordor, and I have over 300 confirmed kinslays. I am trained in uruk warfare and I’m the top marksman in the entire Ñoldorin men at arms. You are nothing to me but just another target. I will slay you with passion the likes of which has never been seen before on Arda, mark my fucking oath. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the palantir? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of eagles across Arda and your palantir is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, orc. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You’re fucking dead, child. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with my bare hands. Not only am I extensively trained in unarmed combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the Ñoldo Army and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of Middle-Earth, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little “wise” comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your crooked tongue. But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shit fury all over you and you will drown in it. You’re fucking dead, kiddo.

Let's be clear, without the influx of these hard working orcs adding millions to the economy, Gondor would face economic collapse.
