Scene 25 ~ The Sword That was Broken

Fellowship of the Ring Scene 25

Aragorn is sitting quitely on a landing in Rivendell, surrounded by beautiful paintings, reading a book.  He looks up as he hears footsteps.  Boromir walks up to a painting on the wall, depicting Isildur cutting the Ring from Sauron's finger and his sword breaking.  He looks in awe at it, then suddenly turns as he hears a faint noise.  He sees Aragorn reading and looks at him quizically
BOROMIR: You are no elf
ARAGORN: Men of the South are welcome here
BOROMIR: (nods) Who are you ?
ARAGORN: I'm a friend of Gandalf the Grey
BOROMIR: (nods) Then we are here on a common purpose (he pauses) friend.
Aragorn just looks back at him.  Boromir turns, a little confused. He notices a statue of a lady holding an elven shield with broken sword pieces on it
BOROMIR: The shards of Narsil (he picks up the hilt part of the broken sword)  The blade that cut the Ring from Sauron's hand (he runs his finger along the tip of it and cuts it causing it to bleed) Ah! (looks at it in wonder) Its still sharp (he looks at Aragorn who is staring at him) but no more than a broken heirloom (he drops the sword quickly and walks off.  The sword end falls to the ground.  Boromir pauses, but continues to walk)
Aragorn walks up and picks up the sword hilt.  He pauses and sighs, the replaces it carefully upon its plinth with reverence.  Arwen walks up behind him
ARWEN: Why do you fear the past.  You are Isildur's heir, not Isildur himself.  You are not bound to his fate
ARAGORN: The same blood flows in my veins (he turns to face her) The same weakness
ARWEN: (walking up to him) Your time will come.  You will face the same evil and you will defeat it   A si i-Dhśath ś-orthor, Aragorn. Ś or le a ś or nin. (The Shadow does not hold sway yet, Aragorn. Not over you and not over me.)

Scene 26 ~ The Evenstar

Fellowship of the Ring Scene 26

It is night.  Aragorn and Arwen stand opposite each other on a small bridge hidden away in Rivendell.
ARWEN: Renech i lu i erui govannen? (Do you remember when we first met?)
ARAGORN: Nauthannem i ned ol reniannen. (I thought I had strayed into a dream.)
ARWEN: (reaching up and stroking his face) Gwenwin in enninath...U-arnech in naeth i si celich. (Long years have passed…You did not have the cares you carry now.) Renech i beth i pennen? (Do you remember what I told you?)
ARAGORN: (sighs and runs his fingers over the Evenstar hanging from her neck) You said you would bind yourself to me (she stares at him meaningfully) foresaking the immortal life of your people
ARWEN: and to that I hold.  I would rather share one lifetime with you than face all the ages of this world alone
Arwen loosens her hold on Aragorn's gripped hand.  He looks down and opens his hand to discover the Evenstar lying there
ARWEN: I choose a mortal life
ARAGORN: You cannot give me this
ARWEN: It is mine to give to whom I will.  Like my heart (she closes his hand over the Evenstar.  They look at each other hesitating and then kiss)

Scene 27 ~ The Council of Elrond

Fellowship of the Ring Scene 27

Seated in a circle are all the representatives of Middle Earth.  Elrond stands to greet them
ELROND: Strangers from distant lands, friends of old.  You have been summoned here to answer the threat of Mordor.  Middle Earth stands upon the brink of destruction.  None can escape it.  You will unite or you will fall.  Each race is bound to this fate, this one doom. (He looks at them all and settles on Frodo, gesturing to him) Bring forth the Ring, Frodo
Frodo walks over to the stone plinth in the middle of the circle and carefully puts the Ring down on it
BOROMIR: (puts his hand to his mouth) So it's true
Frodo sits back down and sighs, closing his eyes. Legolas and Gimli eye the Ring suspiciously as it seemingly speaks to them.  Boromir stands up
BOROMIR: In a dream (he looks again at the Ring) I saw the Eastern sky grow dark (he starts to walk towards the Ring) In the West a pale light lingered A voice was crying, your doom is near at hand (he keeps walking over to the Ring) Isildur's bane is found (Elrond looks at Gandalf concerned.  Boromir stretches out his hand to the Ring) Isildur's Bane
Elrond jumps to his feet
ELROND: Boromir!
The sky darkens and Gandalf beings to speak in Black Speech, Boromir jumps back.
GANDALF: Ash nazg durbatulūk, ash nazg gimbatul, (Gimli shouts, and as Gandalf stands Boromir backs off to his seat)
ash nazg thrakatulūk (Elrond holds his head in pain, and Legolas closes his eyes grimacing) agh burzum-ishi krimpatul. (Frodo stares at the Ring as it appears to be talking to him)

(One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them,
One Ring to bring them all and in the Darkness bind them)


The sky clears and the sun reappears Boromir sits down shocked
ELROND: (horrified and angered) Never before has anyone uttered words of that tongue here in Imladris
GANDALF: I do not ask your pardon Master Elrond for the Black Speech of Mordor may yet be heard in every corner of the West (he turns round to look at everyone there) The Ring is altogether evil (he turns to sit back down)
BOROMIR: (shakes his head) Aye it is a gift! (he stands up) A gift to the foes of Mordor. Why not use this Ring ? (He walks round addressing everyone) Long has my father, the Steward of Gondor kept the forces of Mordor at bey.  By the blood of our people are your lands kept safe.  Give Gondor the weapon of the enemy, let us use it against him 
ARAGORN: You cannot wield it.  None of us can (Boromir turns to face him)  The One Ring answers to Sauron alone. It has no other master
BOROMIR: (scathingly) and what would a ranger know of this matter ?
LEGOLAS; (standing up) This is no mere Ranger.  He is Aragorn son of Arathorn You owe him your allegiance
BOROMIR: (looks at Aragorn in disbelief.  Frodo looks at Aragorn amazed) Aragorn! This.. is Isildur's heir
LEGOLAS: and heir to the throne of Gondor
Frodo continues to try and take in all this information.  Aragorn holds his hand up
ARAGORN: Havo dad, Legolas (Sit down, Legolas.)
BOROMIR: (turns to Legolas) Gondor has no King. (he walks back to his seat, staring at Aragorn) Gondor needs no King (he stares at Aragorn disdainfully)
GANDALF: Aragorn is right.  We cannot use it
ELROND: (standing up again) You have only one choice.  The Ring must be destroyed.
GIMLI: Then what are we waiting for
Gimli stands, takes his axe.  Elrond and Gandalf look worried as Gimli brings his axe down on the Ring.  A shock vision of the eye appears to Frodo who holds his head in pain.  Gimli is thrown onto the floor, his axe blade shattered, whilst the Ring remains undamaged.  Gandalf looks at Frodo in concern as the words of the One Ring are uttered from it
ELROND: The Ring cannot be destroyed, Gimli, son of Gloin, by any craft that we here possess. The Ring was made in the fires of Mount Doom.  Only there can it be unmade.  It must be taken deep into Mordor and cast back into the firey chasm from whence it came. (the Ring continues to whisper) One of you........... must do this
There is silence
BOROMIR: One does not simply walk into Mordor.  Its black gates are guarded by more than just orcs. There is evil there that does not sleep and the great eye is ever watchful.  Tis a barren wasteland, riddled with fire and ash and dust.  The very air you breathe is a poisonous fume.  Not with ten thousand men could you do this. (shaking his head) It is folly
LEGOLAS: (jumping to his feet) Have you heard nothing Lord Elrond has said? The Ring must be destroyed
GIMLI: and I suppose you think you're the one to do it.
BOROMIR: and if we fail what then ? (he stands up) What happens when Sauron takes back what is his ?
GIMLI: (jumps to his feet) I will be dead before I see the Ring in the hands of an elf
The elves stand up to back Legolas.  The men do the same, they all start talking and arguing
GIMLI: Never trust an elf
Gandalf shakes his head.  Frodo watches the arguing in the reflection in the Ring.  Gandalf stands to join the arguments
GANDALF: Do you not understand that while we bicker amongst ourselves, Sauron's power grows?! None can escape it! You'll all be destroyed
Frodo stares at the Ring as he hears these words uttered:

Ash nazg durbatulūk, ash nazg gimbatul,
ash nazg thrakatulūk agh burzum-ishi krimpatul

The people he can see in the Ring are suddenly covered with a Ring of fire

FRODO: (standing up) I will take it (they continue to argue, not hearing him) I will take it (Gandalf closes his eyes in sorrow) I will take the Ring to Mordor (they all stop and look at him in awe) Tho, I do not know the way
GANDALF: I will help you bear this burden Frodo Baggins, as long as it is yours to bear.  (he walks and stands behind him)
ARAGORN: (who has so far not joined in the arguments, stands) If by my life or death I can protect you, I will (he walks up to Frodo and kneels before him) You have my sword
Gandalf smiles and looks at Elrond who smiles
LEGOLAS: and you have my bow (he walks over to join the others)
GIMLI: and my axe (looking at Legolas who grimaces he too joins the others)
BOROMIR: You carry the fate of us all little one. (he walks towards them) If this is indeed the will of the Council, then Gondor will see it done
Peering through the bushes Sam shouts and runs to join Frodo
SAM: Mr Frodo's not going anywhere without me
ELROND: No indeed it is hardly possible to seperate you, even when he is summoned to a secret council and you are not!
Pippin and Merry are listening to all this from behind some pillars.  The run in
MERRY: Wait! we're coming too!
They run and join the others.  Elrond looks astounded
MERRY: You'd have to send us home tied up in a sack to stop us
PIPPIN: Anyway you need people of intelligence on this sort of mission ..........thing
MERRY: Well that rules you out Pip
ELROND: (looks at the nine stood together) Nine companions... So be it! You shall be the Fellowship of the Ring!
PIPPIN: Great! Where are we going?

Scene 28 ~ Gilraen's Memorial

Fellowship of the Ring Scene 28

In the garden's of Rivendell, the hobbits stand waiting with Gimli and Boromir.  Legolas runs down some steps to join them

A hand brushes over a grave stone to reveal the elven writing on it:

Onen i-Estel Edain, ś-chebin estel anim.( I gave Hope to the Dśnedain, I have kept no hope for myself)

pulling off moss and brushing aside leaves.  Aragorn kneels in front of the statue of his mother.

ELROND IN THE BACKGROUND: Anirne hene beriad i chźn īn. Ned Imladris nauthant e le beriathar aen. (She wanted to protect her child. She thought that in Rivendell you would be safe.)
Aragorn brushes his hand over the statue's face
ELROND IN THE BACKGROUND: In her heart your mother knew you'd be hunted all your life
ELROND: (walking through the bushes towards Aragorn) but you'd never escape your fate.  The skill of the elves can reforge the sword of Kings, but only you have the power to wield it.  (Aragorn looks up and pauses)
ARAGORN: I do not want that power, I have never wanted it
ELROND: You are the last of that blood line, there is no other
