Watched much of LOTR: The Fellowship of the Ring today, believe it or not. If you know me very well, you know I ended up with a bad taste in my mouth about LOTR because of the negative experiences I had in the fandom.

When I look back, it was only three or four (or maybe a half dozen) folks who really spoiled it for me. These people evidently had too much time of their hands, and used a lot of it to try to mess with my head. And it pisses me off (AT ME!) that I let them turn me off LOTR itself.

Whether I play in the fandom or not (and I never will again), I do want to finish a fanfic I loved a lot and had some ambitious plans for, 'Boromir's Elves.' So I've considered it a sign that the movie that featured Boromir has been playing on cable again. If I can just recapture the charm and cadence of that writing style, maybe I can do it. I have a pretty complete outline of the story and bios of all the original Elf characters.

How I loved the character Boromir! His bravery, his bluster and his poetic soul . . . his character is tested, but in the end he gives his life for "the Little Ones." (Of course, in 'Boromir's Elves,' he has the chance to give much more of himself, hehe.)

Naturally LOTR is full of classic characters. Strangely enough, one of my favorites when it comes to fanfic is one you barely see, Lord Celeborn. Le sigh.

And of course I'm infamous for making the lovely Legolas preggers . . . but there's no need to go into that today. (The perverse side of me is just happy I could skeeve so many 'nice' people, none of whom ever had the balls to dis me to my face!)

You know, I feel the same way -- mad at ME that I let a few people (who don't amount to anything) drive me from a fandom I still love, in spite of all the crap. (Actually, I'm very thankful to those people for so teaching us so much about what negative people are capable of -- and the ways that anyone has available to fight their behaviors... And, as we always say, LIVING WELL is what matters... grin...)

I used to have TONS of LOTR icons -- but not I don't have a one loaded up. Maybe someday I'll load up a few of the good ones again. (smile)

You MUST finish "Boromir Elves," which is a great saga! And write more MPreg with Legolas and just more fics focusing on LOTR, period.

I really was feeling into it today!

I also love taking what people hold dear and smashing their faces with it.

I wish more writers had that kind of courage.

I'd love to read your LOTR fic!
