"But when you're gone, who remembers your name? Who keeps your flame? Who tells your story?" -Lin Manuel Miranda
Just a little tribute video i made months ago, when i was high on Hamilton feels and decided to torture myself a little more
So, i made this video months ago, but i finally figured out that i could post it to archives, so i thought "Why the hell not?" The song was perfect for the battle of the five armies, and i was sorely disappointing when no one thought to make this. So, with my armature editing skills, and a shit tone of iced tea, i made this. I just thought i should share it with ya'll, because I am currently dying of sinus and a terrible cough, so i wanted praise and criticism. I'm a needy sick person.
Disclaimer: I own nothing but my failing immune system (i am beyond pissed at it. I swear, all these years of health and suddenly it decided to act up when life is going well.)
(See the end of the work for more notes.)
So, i guess i should explain casting?
Gandalf: George Washington
Thranduil: Thomas Jefferson (seriously, it was too perfect to pass up the oppurtunity)
Bard: James Madison (see who Jefferson is. That's why)
Thorin: Alexander Hamilton (the tiny bitter espresso who wants to fight everyone? You can not tell me its not perfect)
Bilbo: Eliza Hamilton(Bilbo does tell Thorin's story, and does live another sixty years longer then his partner.)
Balin: Angelica Schuyler (Not in the romantic Angelica and Alexander way, but just in the way that Angelica was Hamilton confidant and advisor)
Fili & Kili: Sorta Phillip Hamilton? I don't know
