Well this time I will share my top 5 otps because I want to -bait- bring together more mutuals
Bilbo Baggins x Thorin Oakenshield
I mean duh Bagginshield! What's something not to love with these two?! I can't even explain in a few words why this ship is the otp of the otps, I need a whole essay about its magnificence! I'm already tearing up with all the emotions overflowing me!
I mean look at these dorks
Frodo x Sam (x Rosie)
Samfro is such a pure ship, full of devotion and true love! It's not only Sam that follows and supports Frodo all the way, but also Frodo who cares and relies on him! Sam does that with all his heart and Frodo has already given what remains from his heart to him! Where are the tissues when you need them?!
I put Rosie too because she's nice and all three of them living together in the Bag End IS in the book and I want to imagine them being happy and loved together!
Merry x Eowyn x Faramir x Pippin
Ok I may cheated here a bit but come on! Every combination of these four is amazing and if they're all together even better! All four of them deserve a life full of love and happiness! The parallel stories of Merry with Eowyn and Pippin with Faramir were so touching and showed how much chemistry these pairs have and their dynamics (I can go on and on with those two pairs)
Faramir x Eowyn is also cute and Merry x Pippin are enjoyable too
So yeah all of them together I think it's a fine solution, if not seperate!
Gimli x Legolas
Oh yes, Gigolas, the classic trope enemies to besties to husbands! Those two are what Romeo and Juliet should have been! They're loyalty to their kingdoms is what seperates them at first but later on is what brings them together! Both admire each other's loyalty to their kin and want to share their knowledge of their culture and history putting aside their differences! In the end they're more or less married, change my mind!
Kili x Tauriel
Kiliel is such an underrated pair (and maybe because of their somewhat poor handling by the movies but at least there are fics) but you can't deny that for an original character of the trilogy is amazing how much endearing they are! They realize soon enough how their similarities are more than their differences but they're still too loyal to their kin to give up everything for a life together! Tauriel makes a step, not necessarily for romance but for what she believes is the right thing to do and Kili shows the same resolve when declares to his uncle that he's going to fight! Their resolve to try for whatever they might have is what really moves me with those two and that's not for sure a small thing!

Whatever you do, don't imagine domestic Merrywyn after the War of the Ring.
Don't imagine Eowyn traveling with the hobbits and cooking for them and they're more than happy to eat her stew (especially Merry)
Don't imagine Merry proudly bringing a human home to his parents
Don't imagine Eowyn playing with Merry's younger cousins
Don't imagine Eowyn trying to fit in more by wearing flowers in her hair and going barefoot
Don't imagine everyone in the Shire referring to her as Wyn Brandybuck.
Don't imagine Pippin and Frodo telling Eowyn every embarrassing story about Merry

If ever there was a ship that I will support until my dying breath. Then let it be Merry and Éowyn.
Why the hell did Tolkien have Éowyn settle with Faramir? She could have have had Merridock. Become Lady Éowyn Brandybuck.
These guys have probably the best chemistry in either the book or the movies. That was a relationship that was truly building.
And then she settled...and went with Faramir? Why? Because he was in the healing house along with her? Faramir was rather dry in the book. He was one note to say the least. At least Jackson gave him some character in the movie.
“I want to be a healer, and love all things that grow and are not barren.”
Which translates to: "I'm gonna settle!"
