Inspired by xkcd #1256's Title text :
To whoever typed 'why is arwen dying': GOOD. FUCKING. QUESTION.
This refers to a scene in the movie The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (2003). The exact quote is :
ARAGORN: (bows) My lord Elrond
ELROND: I come on behalf of one whom I love. Arwen is dying. She will not long survive the evil that now spreads from Mordor. The light of the evenstar is failing. As Sauron’s power grows her strength wanes. Arwen’s life is now tied to the fate of the Ring. The Shadow is upon us Aragorn. The end has come.
But the real question is : Why Arwen's "strength wanes" as "Sauron’s power grows"? Why Arwen’s fate is "tied to the fate of the Ring"?
