Isn’t it amazing how nobody ever listens to Elrond

Elrond’s like that one guy in all the movies and shit who’s just ‘don’t do the thing’ and everyone else is just ‘Shut the fuck up. What do you know?!’ and then later on it turns out they shouldn’t have done the thing..

Elrond would survive a horror movie

Elrond has already survived several horror movies.

Damn straight.

Elrond is Cassandra
