Originally posted by imaginelegolas

Bowing deeply to the court, you feel self-conscious of your tangled hair and tattered hem. Legolas wanted to introduce you to his people, and you agreed excitedly. However, now that you’re here, you feel out of place and insufficient.

At dinner, beautiful elves bring you platters of delicate and delicious food and play elegant music on their flutes. It is far from the loud, raucous halls you are used to at home. Your fiancé smiles at you encouragingly when he sees your unease, grabbing your hand under the table. You still can’t help but wonder why Legolas favors you over the graceful and alluring elves that would seemingly make him more happy that you ever could. 


“Nin mel, what’s wrong?” Legolas asks, brushing a curl behind your ear. “I sense unrest in you.”

Sighing and slumping on the bed, you breathe, “It’s nothing.” 

You regret the words the moment they leave your mouth. Closing your eyes, you feel a tear slip down your cheek. At this, he immediately kneels in front of you and wipes the tear away. Still not pressing the matter, Legolas envelopes you in a hug, silently stroking your unkempt hair.

“I’m sorry,” you mumble into his shoulder.

Pulling back, he asks, “Whatever for?”

“I’m not them,” you whisper, your voice thin.

“Who, my love?” his eyebrows knit in confusion.

“I am not elvish with perfect hair and beautiful dresses. I am far from what you deserve, and I’m sorry,” you don’t meet his eyes, sure to find them tired and upset.

Your words strike pain into his heart, and he is saddened that you feel this way. Lifting your chin, he looks at you with soft, pleading eyes.

“Mime melin, you are everything,” he whispers definitely, not leaving any room for doubt in his voice. “I love you, and I am sure I will never forget it.”

A thin smile tugs at your lips. “Promise?”

“I swear,” he replies, placing a chaste kiss to your cheek, then to your lips, vowing to prove that to you in every way he can.

Oh no-I’ve been had lol I’m going to answer this very honestly and it’s going to sound very pretentious and I promise I’m not trying to be.I have been a lotr fan since I was a wee little babe,I first read lotr when I was 11 and I literally don’t know how many times I’ve reread the trilogy or Tolkien’s other works.It is my first and deepest love,I’ve done master’s level history research on it,written literary analysis essays on it and the entire 20 page aesthetics essay as an introduction for my senior creative writing portfolio was entirely on Tolkien.I have his signature tattooed on my ribs,became a writer and a historian because of it,and like 90% of my personality is because of it.

I guess the answer is that lotr and Tolkien is too important to me to be really active in fandom.I know that sounds incredibly pretentious,and maybe it is.But lotr has always been both a deeply spiritual and academic love for me and a lot of the reasons I’m so obsessed with it is almost too achingly personal or meaningful to me to be casually active in fandom.Because lotr is a very old love,and one reminiscent from childhood and it’s very tied to my academic career,I’m not really into shipping and other hallmarks of fandom for it.

I think there are a lot of ways to be active and participate in fandom and a lot of ways to love something.I love Star Wars for a lot of the same reasons that I love Tolkien,and I’m active with people who love both things in different ways?For Star Wars it’s mostly my online community and my best friend,where lotr is something my entire family also loves,and something the community of people I larp with loves on the same obsessive and deep level I do.It just touches something deep in the core of who I am that I have a hard time articulating.This isn’t to say that I don’t really enjoy online lotr fandom content,or that like you said,I don’t reblog it on my main account.I think it’s just that my emotional investment of it is so extreme that I don’t think I would have the emotional energy to maintain a fandom space for it as well as the chunk it takes up in 99% of my everyday life.

As far as the larping thing goes,I do post a lot about my larping on other social media accounts but I do like to remain more anonymous on tumblr because I would rather die painfully and slowly by a sword than my family knowing what kind of fanfiction I write.I do occasionally post pictures but as it’s a thing very tied with my real life I prefer not to post too many incriminating details and oust myself.That being said,I do have a lot more of you guys following my main account (which is weird I’ve had it since 2012 and always had like 5 followers)and if you have any questions about larping or the larp community or armor making or fighting or anything to your heart’s desire,you can shoot me questions over on that account which I don’t mind to answer.

me and my sister were watching the two towers tonight and Sams speech not only moved me to tears but i was fuckin howling. im not sure if its because of everything thats going on, the fact that i havent slept well for the past month or the fact that the lord of the rings trilogy are some of the greatest films ever made but im shakin 

“But in the end, it’s only a passing thing, this shadow.
Even darkness must pass.
A new day will come.
And when the sun shines it will shine out the clearer.
Those were the stories that stayed with you.
That meant something.
Even if you were too small to understand why.
But I think, Mr. Frodo, I do understand.
I know now.
Folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back only they didn’t.
Because they were holding on to something.

Frodo : What are we holding on to, Sam?

Sam : That there’s some good in this world, Mr. Frodo. And it’s worth fighting for.”

I am glad you are here with me. Here at the end of all things

Confession: I saw the movies before I read the book. And on first view, I didn’t like the movies–I was too young and the Moria troll scene scared me. But I got a bit older, watched the movies again, and LOVED them. Then I read the books, didn’t understand them, and went back to the movies. Got a little older–I remember reading the books first in middle school and then in high school–and something just clicked.

Though Frodo and Sam aren’t actually my favorite characters, their love for each other is really inspiring. However you see it (I personally view it as a deep platonic friendship), I’ve always wanted a love like that in my life. I hope I mean that much to someone one day, and that’s the main reason I chose this quote above all others. It’s simple yet meaningful and I think it’s rather powerful, for all its plainness.

I had a bit of a rough time deciding how I wanted this panel to look. When I first started rereading the books for this project, I thought I’d pick a quote from Gimli, one of my favs, so I was thinking like. A square, dwarfish border with like, axes or something, and a big quote. But the more I read, the more I hated that idea. I finally chose a (slightly modified free pattern) mountain, since Sam and Frodo spend 90% of their time crossing them. Plus, coming from the Midwest, mountains very much represent the ultimate “adventure” for me (that and REALLY big trees. The oceans I couldn’t care less about, I have the great lakes which are basically the same thing, especially Michigan). I did make the border a bit more elvish though, since LOTR is like, the epitome of elfness for me and a lot of other people, I assume.

Finished this panel the middle of May 2019, and it was fairly easy from start to finish. It’s one of my favorites (the design, the font, and the quote all go together well, I think) and is also one of the few panels that DOESN’T have a mistake on it :)
