I’M SORRY I COULDN’T RESIST!!!!!!

  • Okay, but seriously, Glorfindel is the best elf ever. He was an elflord in Gondolin who escaped during its fall to Morgoth. During the retreat, the fleeing elves were ambushed and one of the enemies was a Balrog, like the one that Gandalf fought in Moria.
  • Glorfindel dueled the Balrog, killing it and clearing the path so that the rest of the elves could escape. However, he was killed in the process and, like all elves who die, his spirit went to the Halls of Mandos where it rested and was cleansed and where he was eventually reembodied (which happens with elves). However, unlike other elves, Glorfindel was sent back across the sea during the Second Age where he continued to kick ass and take names. 
  • Notable among these being the time he totally faced down the Witch-King of Angmar who fucked right off and ran away. Incidentally, the future king of Gondor was there for that and totally wanted to chase down the Witch-King and Glorfindel was like “Do not pursue him! He will not return to these lands. Far off yet is his doom, and not by the hand of man will he fall.

OH SNAP I BET YOU DIDN’T KNOW IT WAS GLORFINDEL THAT SAID THAT SHIT, THAT’S BECAUSE HE GOT SHAFTED IN THE MOVIES

In fact, contrary to what the movies would have you believe, it was Glorfindel, not Arwen, who scoops up Frodo and outruns the Nazgul to get him safely to Rivendell. 

So as you can see, he is basically the best elf ever in the entire world and absolutely deserving of the Regina George treatment.
