New OTP: Tauriel and Kili

So for those of you who have seen The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug you are probably enchanted by its visuals, its epic storytelling, and the themes of small creatures having the ability to change the world.

If you’re like me you are most enchanted by the new amazing pairing that is She-Elf badass Tauriel and cutie pie Dwarf Kili.

Tauriel The second this pairing was hinted at during the movie, I practically lost it. So many fangirl feelings came up that I have not experienced since the days of Lord of the Rings. There’s something about this franchise. I am a fan of many different stories, but I always revert back to my most cavewoman teenage fangirl instincts with anything Tolkien related.

Ki

During the movie the Space Pirate Queen and I were clapping in girly delight every single time this pair was hinted at. We kept saying out loud, “So many feelings! All the feelings! YES.” There’s just something so perfect about it. Even though Tauriel is not from the books, she is an amazing character and holds her own. Of course there is an implied romance between her and Legolas, so having her paired off with Kili makes so much sense. It further enforces Legolas’s hatred for dwarves (after all, his lady has the hots for one) which he expresses greatly in Lord of the Rings.

Yes, I know none of this is canon, but I don’t care. This is how logic works in the mind of a fangirl. Now pardon me while I ship this couple and look up amazing fanart on Tumblr.

Ep. 98 And We Complain About Google Hangout

In this episode, we go old school with Gizzy B and the Space Pirate Queen are left to their own devices. So they spend an hour of the podcast gushing about how amazing The One Expected Party was during Oscar night. Stalking Dominic Monaghan never gets old, apparently. Fanfic Theater: The Immortals.

Hobbits, Buffet, and Open Bar: The One Expected Oscar Party

Not very often does an event combine all of my favorite things, but this past Sunday I got to attend an event that not only included the world of Tolkien, but also included dressing up, a buffet, and an open bar. I am referring, of course, to The One Expected Party hosted by TheOneRing.net.

The One Expected Party 2013

The Space Pirate Queen and I were lucky enough to attend this Oscar party and divulge in everything nerdy and decadent. The event was held at the American Legion Hall in Los Angeles and was themed, naturally, after The Hobbit.

Ep. 91 A Very Pretty Thor

This week, the ladies are all on ADD mode. Fortune Cookie fell asleep while watching ‘The Hobbit’ much to the other girls’ disapproval. Fortune Cookie also introduces everyone to a cookbook based on ’50 Shades of Grey’ which involves sexy, chicken cooking. This episode is also full of inappropriate comments. Be warned. Fanfic Theater: Downton Abbey.
