Elijah says it best: “Quite simply, it’s love. It is that unconditional love that says: regardless of what you do or where you go, I will always be there for you.”
just depends on what kind of person you are when you read that, and how you think of it.

I think the issue lies in society. In todays society, it feels like people get creeped out if there are close guy friends and make assumptions. However when it comes to girls, its perfectly fine.

Tolkien was after "Not just two friends who hang out on weekends" sort of thing. He was after "Two friends who will stand, back-to-back, until the fall of the other" for Sam and Frodo. They were meant to be tight-knit, like brothers; showing what happens when two long-time friends are thrusted into despair together. The experience draws them closer, because the only hope they have is each other. The point had to get across: They would not stop until they could not summon any more life to defend the other. And they conquered the entire dang army of Mordor like so.

So yeah. I pretty much agree with you all. Sometimes I wonder what we've come to in the 21st century. Suddenly, the Medieval era is some sort of joke; suddenly, being like sisters or brothers and some kind of a sick jest; suddenly, being thrown into the midst of battle and death, sorrow and pain with a friend who is the only reason you're alive is something to make fun of, to laugh at for an otherwise blind reason. It makes one wonder what's happened to civilization. :disgust:

I can't even hang out with one of my closest friends and give her my counsel on how to handle the weight of the world she is going through without a mob of guys yucking it up at us. Indeed one wonders. :annoyed2: :wary:
