Watching LOTR Fellowship extended edition for the first time and loving it!!!
But I’ve realized something
Frodo and Sam are close to Aragorn and also Gandalf
Merry and Pip are close to Boromir which leads Pip to grow close with Faramir
Thus saving Faramir
Aragorn and Legolas were already close friends and Legolas grows close to Gimli￼ leading Gimli to grow close to Aragorn
Merry being mistreated in Rohan leads him to be close with Eowyn and end up saving her
Which in turn Eowyn and Faramir meet because of Merry and Pippin
My thinking honestly just 🤯

You know how it was a really popular filmmaking trend back in the early 2000s to have your characters dancing to a popular song during the end credits?
Yeah well now I wish Peter Jackson had the entire Fellowship dancing to YMCA during Return of the King’s end credits, simply because that’d be iconic and make the post-trilogy pain go away ☀️

I'm glad that I never got taken to Disneyworld as a kid, because that means I never had the chance to express my disappointment that there were no Nazis there.
(When I was little I thought that Nazis were invented by Disney for Bedknobs& Broomsticks, my favourite movie at the time, and my family never corrected me so I believed this for what was honestly probably years)

What current rp trend do you hate? Do you think rp has had a positive or negative affect on your life or you as a person?

14. Do you think rp has had a positive or negative affect on your life or you as a person?
33. How do you feel about personal blogs following your rp blog?
@aleadamia / To Be Honest Meme / Accepting
14. I think it is a bit of both. Positive because I have made some amazing friends and after losing my vernacular these past few years, writing with these amazing people is slowly allowing me to improve. It gives me a place to express myself creatively and let me process things through my characters. However, I do feel like it made me more isolated. I found RP when I was young and in a developmental stage in socializing; I found more comfort socializing online than face to face. So now at 23 (24 in July) I still struggle with in person interactions.
33. I used to not care, however when those personal blogs begin to interact and throw off my activity tracker that is when I have an issue with it.

What current rp trend do you hate?
Honestly, I truly hate when the text is so small I have to zoom in to like 175% just to decipher it. I know people have aesthetics and it looks fancy, but for people like myself it can trigger migraines. Despite having my Google Chrome filters to increase fonts to at least like 10pt sometimes things slip through. That's why I ask people not to do small text x2 in my interactions (ie <sub><sub> or <small><small> or <sub><small> in html) because my eyes can't focus and within like 2 minutes migraines come on.
Do you prefer writing male muses or female more? Why?
In the past I used to write more female muses. However, the pressure to write smut or just sexual harrassment endured by female muses was very uncomfortable. I switched to male muses a few years ago and felt more comfy. I went from Pansy Parkinson, Kasumi Goto and Mei-Ling Zhou to Boba Fett, Samwell Tarly and Kai Leng.
I think this also helped me explore my gender identity a bit because I never felt comfortable fitting in specific gender norms as a AFAB and female presenting, so this allowed me to explore my comfort levels.
What do you know now about rp that you wish you knew when you first started?
You do not have to write things you're not comfortable with. When I first joined the community I didn't realize that toxic members of the fandoms will seek out the new people because they are ignorant to their transgressions. And at that point people would share their follower number and you'd sit there like "Oh shit. If I interact with them and follow what they want, maybe I can get as many as they do."
You can say no to anything that is out of your comfort level. Boundaries are important in every relationship - platonic, familial and romantic. And guess what? That goes for the same in relationships you have online.
On a positive note - I wish I knew then that the people you become friends with in these fandoms can truly change your life. And that I have some of the closest friends that I would never have met had it not been for the RPC.

Legolas: Which way did they go?
Aragorn: Well based on the direction of the wind, the broken sticks in the corner, and the slight disturbance in the dirt, I'd guess they went left
Gimli: You could really figure it out from that?
Aragorn, holding up his phone: No you idiot they sent me a text

I mean, GOD, these two are everything. On the big dramatic world-shaking level, you've got two members of races that have hated each other for millennia who form this unexpected but profound bond that mends relations between their peoples and even bends the whole rules of their universe. (How was Gimli allowed into Valinor? The power of love or something? Who knows? WHO CARES? YOU DID IT. YOU CRAZY SONS OF BITCHES, YOU DID IT.)
Then on the purely personal level, they're just so much fun. They go exploring together! They keep a running tally of baddies they've killed! They take the piss and slag each other off and look after each other all the time. (Aragorn must've felt like such a third wheel during that hunt across Rohan.) In sum: they're amazing.

WHAT COLOR ARE YOU
you are angry, aren't you. how apt. you laugh and show your teeth when you smile and never ever let your audience forget that you are dangerous, and then when your theatre clears you do not stop performing. you have not stopped in a very long time, because when you do someone is going to see you as a person instead of a pedestal, and that is not an option. when you are vulnerable again, you will be held.

Whatever else you think about Tolkien's male characters' relationships, whether you think of them as 'just good friends' or 'brothers in arms' (eyebrow raised: not sure it always means what you think it means, my modern heterosexual oblivions - pretty sure some very queer ancient Greeks, not to mention some fabulous Georgian and Victorian men could wax pretty poetical about the love between 'brothers-in-arms') love and tenderness between men was something that Tolkien was consistently interested in exploring. The depths of it, the desires behind it, how far love could take a relationship, what actions love and jealousy would lead to, and how far the boundaries of normative male love could be crossed or dismantled. And what ensues when heteronormative boundaries in relationships are crossed (i.e. when characters keep getting closer and closer). Nowhere in the text, in any of Tolkien's texts is this exploration of male same-sex love given parameters that exclude erotic desire and love and sometimes outright homosexual relationships (looking directly at you, Beleg and Turin).

Legolas: I wanted to apologize.
Legolas: Let me finish. I said I wanted to. And then I realised, I'm not sorry.
