Another Taylor Swift parody: We are never ever beating Sauron together

Sometimes things just snowball.

So, in the name of procrastination and work avoidance, here’s another (our last, honest!) Tolkien-style parody of a Taylor Swift song. This time we’re riffing off a little tune (you may have heard of it) called We are never, ever getting back together.
