OTP for them: none actually, idk I don't really ship Frodo with anyone
BROTP for them: Merry and Pippin, Gandalf, Farmer Maggot, Aragorn, ARWEN, Gloin and Gimli
Other ships: Platonic Samfro and Samfrosie
What kind of fic I'd write about them: a kid fic about him moving to Bilbo and getting used to his new life in Hobbingen Hobbiton (me here using the German translation of names lol)
A favourite canon moment: All of them? Like he's such a great character in the booka I have such a hard time deciding. But if I had to choose probably this moment I made an entire post about ^^
Colour that reminds me of them: Yellow! Bright sunshine yellow
Song that reminds me of them: When I dream I see - Mighty Oaks (I think it's been a while since I listened to that song)
A headcanon about them: Frodo is a really good dancer for Hobbit Standards and he knows all the traditional dances by heart. He doesn't hesitate to teach them to anyone who asks (after the journey he can be seen teaching Éowyn and Faramir how to dance a traditional wedding dance alongside Merry)
A random AU I think up on the spot for them:
Frodo follows Bilbo to Rivendell straight away instead of waiting for 17 years.
I can imagine that this would lead to a way earlier forming of a way different Fellowship that could potentially leave a lot more people alive I guess
But we would miss out on a lot of things
Also Saruman would be aware of whereabouts of the ring way earlier
I decided to read the lotr books in earnest, and it’s fascinating seeing the text that shaped most of modern fantasy just here in my hands.
Also if you thought Frodo and Sam were gay for each other in the movies, they’re so much gayer (or bi-er) in the books holy shit.
“At that moment there was a knock on the door, and Sam came in. He ran to Frodo and took his left hand, awkwardly and shyly. He stroked it gently and then he blushed and turned hastily away” (The Fellowship of the Ring, page 237)
WHAT. there is no straight explanation for that. wow.
