The Dark Queen

Books are magical things.

Sometimes you read something once in a book, you feel wonder and fear, you just don't know why, but you remember it forever.

For me, one of these magic siguls is what Galadriel says to Frodo in front of the mirror :

And now at last it comes. You will give me the Ring freely! In place of the Dark Lord you will set up a Queen. And I shall not be dark, but beautiful and terrible as the Morning and the Night! Fair as the Sea and the Sun and the Snow upon the Mountain! Dreadful as the Storm and the Lightning! Stronger than the foundations of the earth. All shall love me and despair!

And now all of you : Despair !!
