Awesome Fanfic Monday: The Very Secret LotR Diaries
Hello, my kiddies, and welcome to another edition of Awesome Fanfic Monday!
Today I want to do a throwback. I have been feeling a bit nostalgic lately and couldn’t help but reminisce on one of my favorite pieces of fanfic from back when I was a wee little teenage fangirl, just discovering what the Internet was. I was (still am) a huge Lord of the Rings fangirl. There is an infamous piece of fanfiction tied to this fandom, not that different from the Harry Potter fic ‘My Immortal’ that is ‘The Very Secret Diaries‘ series by Cassandra Claire. This series of fanfiction is of the parodic manner and is absolutely delightful.
The whole concept of this series is that it shows the diary of each character from The Fellowship of the Ring. It’s full of sass, innuendo, and most importantly displays Legolas for the sassy diva he truly is.
If you have yet to read this series of fanfiction then you are in for a treat and a very good laugh. Claire does a great job of teasing the characters and using inside jokes within the LotR fandom to make it delightful for us LotR fans. If you have already had the pleasure of reading ‘The Very Secret Diaries’, then sit back relax, take a trip down fangirl memory lane, and remember back to when that fandom ruled the world and how insane we were (or still are). When you see the web pages for each diary entry you will revel in the old school web site and how adorable and new the Internet was for us noobs back in the early 2000s. We kind of kicked ass with HTML, guys.
Here are the links to all the different diary entries, and remember, Legolas will ALWAYS be the prettiest elf in the fellowship.
The Very Secret Diary of Peregrin Took
The Very Secret Diary of Legolas, Son of Weenus (Personal Favorite)
The Very Secret Diary of Frodo Baggins
