One Last Time, The One Last Party

One Last Party 2015

“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.

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.
