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.
Welcome to another edition of Awesome Fanfic Monday!
One of my top fandoms is Lord of the Rings, so it goes without saying that a lot of my favorite pieces of fanfiction take place in middle earth. One of my favorite kinds of fanfiction is the parody. Nothing puts a smile on my face like seeing or reading about characters I love acting silly.
This week’s Awesome Fanfic Monday is dedicated to Frodo’s Mistake by Michicko of Fanfiction.net. This parody has everything an LotR fangirl could want. There is hilarious homoeroticism between Frodo and Sam, Legolas is acting like the sassiest of sassy-pants and just CAN’T EVEN, and Merry and Pippin are embracing their gangster side.
Celebrate the meme-niversary of the classic, They’re Taking the Hobbits to Isengard video/music remix with us, plus throw in a Fandom Word of the Day and some Spider News! Fanfic Theatre: Jack Sparrow x Godzilla.
Who said the third in the series is the worst? Once again, we recorded a podcast with Legends Podcast and talked geek news and… reasons why these fellas need to pick a geek girlfriend. Fanfic Theatre: Lord of the Rings.
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.
The Lady Geeks start a new segment to celebrate the Fast and the Furious movie franchise. Don’t judge us. Also, this episode is full of lies. Fanfic Theatre: Lord of the Rings.
“All’s well that ends better.”
TheOneRing.net hosted the last Oscar party for fans of the Lord of the Rings/The Hobbit movies this past weekend at the American Legion in Hollywood. Traditionally, the fan parties took place during Oscar night so we can all gather and watch the award show together. This year, the party took place the night before the show on Saturday and I think it is because The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies didn’t get nominated for any categories this year. Boo-urns, Academy Awards!
Either way, it didn’t stop the fans from gathering to appreciate our fandom for one night together in fancy dresses and dwarf gear.
