(See! sassy snarkasaurus fusspot Dori is canon)
Favorite Male Character -
Celegorm. For one thing, he has a dog, he can speak to animals and he is easy to make fun of. xp There’s probably an indecent amount of headcanon behind this choice, and I won’t say he (or his deeds) is perfect, but I have liked him as a character for some years now, okay?
Favorite Female Character -
Aredhel. She comes of to me as a cool, sassy lady. That is reason enough.
Favorite Ship -
Andreth/Aegnor. I’m not that much into relationship ships here, but A/A is one I’ve spent time thinking of. Who can deny the glory of one of the only female-mortal/male-Elf couple that exists in canon? For other ships, see below.
Favorite Friendship -
Aredhel/Celegorm, and Maedhros/Fingon. Ultimate BroTPs, but sometimes I play around with them and they become just OTPs. Romantic ones that is. :] Sue me. Overall, I’m just really fond of Silm-friendships between siblings: the sons of Finwë (if that were possible), the Fëanoreans, even the Fëantúri… (could it be because I’m an only child myself?)
Favorite Quote -
If I may name quotes from The Children of Húrin, I nominate Túrin’s epic final craze:
“For see, I am blind! Did you not know? Blind, blind, groping since childhood in a dark mist of Morgoth! Therefore leave me! Go,go! Go back to Doriath, and may winter shrivel it! A curse upon Menegroth! And a curse on your errand! This only was wanting. Now comes the night.”
Worst Character Death (if any) -
“if any”, hahaha…. you’re cute. *sigh* Fingon the Valiant. Two balrogs against one Elf. All of Fingon’s comrades were dead at this point and his only hope was that Maedhros would come at the nick of time… but Maedhros didn’t. Also Eöl’s, because had it not happened, a lot of things would have been different.
This made me so happy you have no idea Moment -
Maedhros’ rescue! Yaay, is heartwarming, really. I like rereading it every now and then.
Saddest Moment -
See worst character death. But overall, the Silmarillion is so full of sadness. And if we add HoME’s Morgoth’s Ring, then oh god… It’s not so much the specific moments, than just the sad details and thoughts that are in the story: Daeron’s and Maglor’s lonely wanderings, Túrin and Nienor’s lives, The Nirnaeth, The Athrabeth…
Favorite Location -
…I haven’t thought about this much before… but I would imagine that Lake Helevorn is really beautiful. Nargothrond and Himring are also cool, but maybe that’s because of their inhabitants.
Ireland and finland should become drinking buddies now
Yes. Let’s go to Greece. Where alcohol… you know.
we got lesbians, gays, vampires, anime and Thor
