dear peter


since you’re open to changing titles, here’s some suggestions:

  • the hobbit: could’ve done it in two movies
  • the hobbit: i only exist because peter wanted more money
  • the hobbit: 75% of this didn’t happen in the book
  • the hobbit: more durin angst and unnecessary romance
  • the hobbit: kili better fucking die alongside fili
  • the hobbit: i swear if kili and fili don’t die together i’m rioting
  • the hobbit: get the fuck away from me peter

#true #the hobbit 


i know it seems like a silly thing to be so upset about but i just feel like the title change undermines the whole story being told in the book? There and Back Again is the tale of bilbo baggins, a hobbit who found that even someone like him- proper, set in his ways, reluctant to move out of a comfort zone- could become a hero, could be capable of a great incredible courage that would prove wrong all the doubters. could be so much MORE than people had ever expected. defying expectations in the best possible way- that’s bilbo’a story. there and back again. a journey to slay a dragon and reclaim a homeland, yes, but also a journey to find himself, to find he was something more than he had ever expected. a journey where a king on his last breaths could acknowledge that the ways of kindness and peace and friendship and family are worth so much more than wealth, than jewels and gold. a story that applies to all of us, a story we should remember.

but to change the title to “the battle of the five armies”? it wipes away all of that, that moral, that fitting title to the story’s conclusion, that reminder that this is the incredible story of one hobbit who never knew he could do all the things he ended up doing. it cheapens everything, dismissing it as “ah yes!!! another fun sword fight in a fantasy setting!!” it makes the focus flashy fight scenes and eradicates the sense of closure. the battle of the five armies is a big part of this section of the story, but there are so many other things that happen that are just as if not more crucial, and suddenly they don’t matter.

the battle is not the most important part. fighting was never the heart of this story. but with this change, i feel like that heart has been shoved under the rug, ignored, and, well… that kind of hurts.

peter jackson, i trust you man, i really do, but the hobbit is about bilbo’s journey and the fact that he doesn’t return to the shire as the same hobbit. he’s seen death and suffering, but he’s also seen courage and hope and friendship and man the point isn’t the battle. 

the point is bilbo’s journey.

modern au → arya stark as an underground assassin in london

The months merged together, like a long flash of too bright light. When she went to sleep, curling inwards and giving herself over to the dreams, she felt it and when she woke the next morning, it was always to the taste of blood. There was a darkness gathering inside of her and when she held a gun it was closest, consuming her, taking away memories of Winterfell, her father’s voice, her brother’s smile. With a target in mind, it was easy to forget the gnawing in her stomach, to let everything in the world narrow down to a gun and the bullet that she controlled. The names gradually dwindled off of her list, she had a shorter prayer to recite at night, and the dizzy emptiness began to slip away - replaced by something harder, something stronger.
