I swear its like every time I see something even remotely sad or hinting towards something tragic in a fandom(any of them) I just keep looking and or reading!
Then I hate myself...and then the person that posted it...then I cry myself to sleep.
I wrote something about this on deviantart then soon after I posted it I felt better.
I guess I just needed to talk about my feelings on the matter.
Oh god, that sounds so corny but its true talking does tend to help in most cases.
Back to my point: the popuilar trend in stories, tv shows, and movies lately seems to be make people choose a fave character then make them cry over something tragic happening to said character.
But its always been like this and just recently,maybe last year now that I think of it,I seem to be more in touch with feelings towards characters in stories.
For example, I read the Hobbit in highschool for a report in 11th grade and I'm sure everyone knows what happens towards the end.
So I read it and I apparently forgot about the ending till February when I got The Hobbit on dvd. I fell in love with that movie and I wanted to re-read the book.
It was packed away because my room was being cleaned and the extra books were put into storage.
I gotta wait to get them out(still waiting since Feb.)was what I was told and I decided to surf the web for my latest obsession(right word?).
Then I found a ton of great fan art and comics on deviantart. And fanfics on Archive Of Our Own and Fanfiction.net . Which made me kinda excited since I had just become a fan and didn't know that people wrote so many fanfics so soon.
Some of the comics were really funny but what bugged me the most is how I found a spoiler at the end of a really good one.
Its pretty comical how I went from this: to this: so soon.
I mean how could I have forgotten that this happened?!(my thoughts at the time)
I almost considered tramatization in highschool(the ending of the story made me so sad that I forgot it) but I'm sure that wasn't it.
At the time I just wanted to get it over with(reading the Hobbit)and get my grade but I was also swept up in the story.
Its was really good and if you haven't read it yet then shame on you.
All of Tolken's work is great and holy moley I just remembered that I have the old cartoon versions of The Lord Of The Rings Series on tape!
Got off track again..lol
So anyways, I was loving the story but the one thing that I remembered the most was how much I HATED Thorin in the story. I didn't even remember him having nephews or anything...
And when I think of them I almost consider crying...I like the relationship that they have together in the movie(brotherly love).
Note#1: I think all of the dwarves are pretty cool so I don't have a particular favorite.
Note#2: Thrandul is a b*****d. And I also didn't know he was Legolas's dad.
If it was mentioned in any of the LOTR books I forgot as I didn't finish any except The Hobbit and half of The Two Towers.
Note#3: I never finished reading the 6th and 7th Harry Potter book because of my bff.Thanks Charlie for the spoilers.
Note#4: Cliff hangers are ok but not spoilers obvs. Cliff hangers=exciting and Spoilers=annoying. Half the time I don't even read the descriptions anymore unless absolutely necessary.
Note#5: What inspired me to write this entry to get rid of the awful sad feeling I have is what someone posted on this persons tumbler regarding Fili and Kili...you can guess what it is..
Go here and click on the icon that looks like Sam and Dean saying "not cool" then scroll down and look for a grey and white picture of Fili and Kili. Then read what it says under it. Only do this if you want to cry or to see what I meant if you don't care. I don't care that much anymore after writing this. But I sorta do at the same time. Normally I'd just copy that post and the pics but I don't want the reminder. Ah, blissful ignorance...
One of the many reasons why Thorin is never my favorite character even if he is 'majestic'.
Even as I say this I still ship Bagginshield.
