Something that still stands out to me in regards to Frodo’s impact on the hero’s journey is that he choses himself.
So many modern “chosen one” characters: Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, Jim Lake Jr., Adora-- they’re all either the subject of a prophecy or chosen without their agency. 
Frodo? Serves as a chosen one who really chooses himself. He stands up volunteers. And I just think that’s really beautiful.

I also think it’s why Gandalf reacts as he does.

I’m not sure what is more tragic: someone not having a say in their fate to shoulder this great burden and sacrifice, or having a say and choosing to wield the mantle anyways.
All I can say for sure is that it’s damn brave.

Conversation
Boromir: Wait, I didn't catch that. Why are we running?
Sam: Orcs are coming! They heard us!
Boromir: How did they hear us?
Pippin: You know what? Sometimes things just happen. And sometimes God... Is a vicious, two-faced prick.
Merry: OH, so this is God's fault! God accidentally knocked that skeleton down a tell and led the orcs directly to us? Maybe GOD should learn to pay attention!
Pippin: GOD can't pay attention to absolutely everything, Merry, He's not omniscient. Which is why, everyone, we should learn to forgive God.
Merry: Despite the situations He's put us in.
Pippin: The FUN situation that will lead us to a better life!
Pippin: When God knocks a skeleton down a well, He always opens a window, I always say. His way is a mysterious one. We should just love Him.
Merry: Because we're stuck with Him.

The finest rockets ever seen, They burst in stars of blue and green, Or after thunder, silver showers, Came falling like a rain of flowers.

Can’t believe Gothmog isn’t over that whole “casting him into the void” thing. That happened, like, three months ago. SMH.

“Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky, Seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone, Nine for Mortal Men doomed to die, One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie. One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them, One Ring to bring them all, and in the darkness bind them, In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.” – JRR Tolkien, Ring Verse, The Fellowship of the Ring  [Original Cover Design, by J.R.R. Tolkien]
• Revolution of Tenderness is launching its first-ever reading group, an 8-week literary pilgrimage through The Fellowship of the Ring, the first volume of Tolkien’s monumental trilogy. Our weekly meetings  will be enhanced with videos, rarely-heard recordings of Tolkien interviews, and a commemorative journal that will include inspiring quotes and prompts.
We’ve chosen this novel because of a rare opportunity: the Rimini Meeting in Italy, Europe’s most-attended week-long cultural festival, is held annually in August. This year’s edition will feature an historic collaboration between the Meeting, Oxford University, and St. Andrews University in presenting The Tree of Tales, a remarkable exhibit on the life and work of J.R.R. Tolkien. The Revolution of Tenderness literary pilgrimage will culminate in watch parties of the Rimini event, and other behind-the scenes opportunities reserved exclusively for Revolution of Tenderness members.

Tolkien wrote LOTR in the 30s and 40s when women had no rights. He wrote Eowyn as this badass who laughed in the face of death and stood up to the sexism of men.
In the movies that were made in the late 90s and early 2000s, they decided her feminist scenes from the book weren't worth keeping and all we got was "I am no man".
Tolkien knew the importance of women, not just being a part of the narrative, but leading it, and, as much as I love the movies, Peter Jackson didn't. This will always be something that pisses me off. There are SO many men and they cut the scenes of the one woman who stood up to them.
Women in fantasy deserve more. Women in film deserve more. Women deserve more. Period.
To all the little girls watching LOTR: I hope you read the books as soon as you can. There's more for you. You can be the hero just as much as Aragorn, Frodo, Sam, Theoden, Legolas, Gimli, Gandalf, etc. But don't just stop there. You don't need anyone to tell you what you're able to do, especially a man. Be your own Tolkien. Write your own story. Make your own movie. Do what you want because you can.
