Remember how I said because I recently watched The Lord of the Rings that I was going to be posting a lot of stuff related to it? Well here is the beginning. Why not start with Legolas?
WARNING: If you don't know anything about The Lord of the Rings /The Hobbit, you will not understand most of this.
If you don't already know, there are two types of Elves in Middle-Earth: Silvan and Sindarin. Lots of people think that Legolas is 100% Silvan, but he is not. He's mostly Sindarin. Thrandruil is Sindarin and comes from a long line of Sindarin Elves. Legolas's mother, however, was Silvan, so that makes Legolas part Silvan; but mostly Sindarin. Thrandruil, as most of us know, is racist (I'm not saying he's a bad person though) and dislikes anyone who is not Sindarin (with an exception for his wife). We learn this by reading The Hobbit (by J.R.R. Tolkien) and by watching The Hobbit and paying close attention to how he treats people, especially Tauriel.
Focusing on his behavior towards Tauriel, he threatens to kill her, and would have if Legolas had not stepped in.
Ignoring everything he was taught by Thrandruil, Legolas grew up a good person, loving everyone no matter what they are. He fought for what he knew was right and went against his father's will and followed his own heart.
If you want me to post something on Legolas's back-round/heritage, let me know in the comments!
If I had a genie under my control, these would be my three wishes: One, I wish to meet Orlando Bloom in person. Two, I wish I could draw perfect manga characters. Three, I want the extended edition of each Lord of the Rings movie.
I love The Lord of the Rings, but I don't have any of the extended editions. The one I would be most excited about seeing would be Legolas and his drinking game with Gimli (The Return of the King), because I love Legolas's reactions and how he seems so innocent and calm. Love it.
Also it would be interesting to see Saruman's death. Why? Because it would bring everything together. And I find it interesting that Grima would kill Saruman, but that's beside the point.

Sorry I haven't posted in a long time, I've been super busy. . .
After watching the Lord of the Rings movies over the course of three days and seeing WiseHufflepuff's video where he did a Harry Potter marathon, I got the idea that I should do a Lord of the Rings marathon. Basically what would happen is I would watch the movies and check in now and then, posting where I was in the movie, how long I had been watching, etc.
Tell me what you guys think of this in the comments!
P.S. I will be posting several Lord of the Rings posts because I have recently watched all of the films. So get used to it. Because I have a lot to say, especially about Legolas (YEAH), Frodo (BOO), Arwen (UH), and some others.
Special shout out to Drew!! Drew is my BFFLTE (best friend for like totally ever) and today is her birthday! So. . . Happy birthday to yoou, happy birthday to yoou, happy birthday dear Dreeeeewwww, happy birthday to yooooooou!!!!!!! (and many mooooooore)!
Every book/movie has one of those wise characters. Those are, most of the time, the characters that form the story, and by that I mean without them there would be no story. I'm going to take two stories: The Lord of the Rings/ The Hobbit (they count as one) and Harry Potter; and with these stories I will put down some of the most wise and inspiring quotes we hear.
Dumbledore (from Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling): "Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times if one only remembers to turn on the light." "We must all face the choice between what is right and what is easy." ". . . . . pity the living, and above all, those who live without love." "It is our choices that show who we truly are, far more than our abilities." "We are as strong as we are united, as weak as we are divided." "It matters not what someone is born, but what they grow to be." "While we may come from different places and speak in different tongues, our hearts beat as one."
Sirius Black (from Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling): "We've all got both light and dark inside us. What matters is the part we choose to act on. That's who we really are." "If you want to know what a man's like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals."
Gandalf (from The Lord of the Rings/The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien): "All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us." "Many that live deserve death. And some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them? Then do not be too eager to deal out death in judgement. For even the very wise cannot see all ends."
Galadriel (from The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien): "Even the smallest person can change the course of the future."
Legolas (from The Lord of the Rings/The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien): "Few can foresee wither their road will lead them, till they come to its end." "Strange it may seem." "Yet do not cast all hope away. Tomorrow is unknown. Rede oft is found at the rising of the sun."
Hey everyone! I would like to announce a new fantasy website I'm working on (along with this one and Puffle's Corner)! My best friend and I (shoutout to Netherstar!) are working together on the new website, Fantasy Fans Unite. To visit Fantasy Fans Unite,
Have you ever been watching a movie or reading a book and thinking, "He's too good for her"? Well, I do that ALL THE TIME. So here are a few of the couples (not all of these are true couples) from books/movies where the wimpy girls don't deserve those awesome guys.
Will and Elizabeth
Pirates of the Caribbean
I'm not calling Elizabeth wimpy, because she's not. But she does NOT deserve Will. This is kind of like the Dumbledore scenario: I say I hate Dumbledore and everyone gasps. Yeah well, I hate Elizabeth, so gasp if you want, but I do. And as I usually say, you have to admit I'm at least a little bit right.
Wesley and Buttercup
The Princess Bride
This one is obvious. Wesley is like totally awesome, and he's skilled, and he did everything just for Buttercup, but tell me this: what did Buttercup ever do for him? Example: Wesley was getting attacked by that animal (you know, that weird rat type thing I don't know what it's called) and what did Buttercup do? Nothing. Except a little screaming.
Legolas and Tauriel
Legolas showed Tauriel love, he cared for her, protected her, even disobeyed his father for her. And what does she do? Love a dwarf instead.
Snape and Lily
You're probably wondering, "Why Snape?" Well, I'm not saying Lily was a wimp, because she DEFINITELY wasn't, but Snape was too good for her. Let's face it.
. . . . .okay, maybe I'm just doing this to make myself feel better about how Snily ended up. . . . .
