I Got Nothing

Wait I just came up with something, “So it begins”, a phrase that was used by King Theoden the leader of Rohan in the Lord of the Rings movie The Two Towers, right before the major battle at Helms Deep.  The phrase can be used to signify the start of a major or significant event, and it is very appropriate when a shitstorm is coming.  It is easy to hate orcs, because they were created to be hated.  Tolkien needed these particular monsters, so his heroes would have a continual supply of enemies to fight against, that nobody would feel sorry for, even when they were killed.  Everyone appreciates the concept of violence being used against evil despicable characters.

Written for Fandango’s Dog Days of August FDDA #26 where the prompt is your favorite quote and for FOWC with Fandango – Nothing.

  1. LOTR has some of the most stirring battle scenes I’ve ever seen.

    It always seemed hard to explain how Orcs could even exist. Even as a bioengineered form. They behave too stupidly to be useful as soldiers.
