Welcome to Awesome Fanfic Monday!
Despite the amazing Star Wars fever going on right now this time of year always reminds me of Lord of the Rings. The movies were always released mid December, so I cannot help but associate wintertime with the lovely magic that is Tolkien.
One of the more infamous pieces of fanfiction out there is a personal favorite of mine and it is “Legolas by Laura”. It’s up there with the Harry Potter fanfic “My Immortal” and I think deserves recognition as being one of the first fanfics to go viral. Let’s face it, us older people, if we had been a pre-teen and had access to a computer, we probably would have written something very similar to this. Like all great myths and old world ballads, the true author of this is unknown. I just hope she or he is proud of its legacy.
