he ain’t heavy, he’s my brother
i will carry him if i must!
one day you will be king and you will understand
#can we please talk about this#about the fact that Fili is essentially the most kind-hearted of them all#he knows that Kili’s in grave danger#and yet he still tells Bard to go#to take his family and keep them safe#because family is what’s important to Fili above all else#and when they don’t#he tries to protect the Bardlings#he literally flings himself unarmed at an orc double his size#with no plan apart from ‘keep the children safe’#HE WOULD HAVE BEEN AN AMAZING KING#AND AN AMAZING FATHER#DON’T TOUCH ME - indyfinitely
Sometimes I feel like this was the most important scene in the series because it shows how alike they are. They’re two men trapped in their joint destiny, hurtling headlong into things they can’t control with only each for support.
They didn’t choose each other but I feel like if they could do everything over, they’d still pick each other over everyone else.
