It's kind of cute how every creature in the Lord of the Rings just picks the hobbits up and tuck them under their arm. Like how Treebeard just picks Merry and Pippin, who feel safe for the first time in a while, and takes them to his home. Strange how the hobbits feel so safe with them manhandling them, because just a few moments ago, they were at the hands of the cruel Orcs.

Laurelindórenan has a specific entry in LOTR’s index, and apparently, the times it’s used by anyone, ever:
“Do not risk getting entangled in the woods of Laurelindórenan! That is what the Elves used to call it, but now they make the name shorter: Lothlórien they call it. Perhaps they are right: maybe it is fading, not growing. Land of the Valley of Singing Gold, that was it, once upon a time. Now it is the Dreamflower. Ah well!”
“Folk have come to grief here. Aye, they have, to grief. Laurelindórenan lindelorendor malinornélion ornemalin,” he hummed to himself. “They are falling rather behind the world in there, I guess.”
“Boromir, O Boromir!” he cried. “What did she say to you, the Lady that dies not? What did she see? What woke in your heart then? Why went you ever to Laurelindórenan, and came not by your own road, upon the horses of Rohan riding home in the morning?”
“For there was a great rush of those, burárum, those evileyed-blackhanded-bowlegged-flinthearted-clawfingered-foulbellied-bloodthirsty, morimaitesincahonda, hoom, well, since you are hasty folk and their full name is as long as years of torment, these vermin of orcs; and they came over the River and down from the North and all round the wood of Laurelindórenan, which they could not get into, thanks to the Great ones who are here.”
I just think it’s interesting!
