LotR: Poetic Justice by wolfanita LotR: Poetic Justice by wolfanita
Ever since I first read the book and watched the movies in cinema for the first time (way too many years ago), I had several Lord of the Rings - gags in the back of my head.
I doodled some of them into my old paperback copy of the book, but since the Hobbit movie is coming this year, I thought it would be a nice occasion to redraw five of these old pictures clean and in colour.


Every time I watch the Caradhras-scene where eight fellows are totally lost in the snow and that elf is simply walking past them ON the snow, I think of Gandalf doing this.


Edit: Please understand that I'm no particular Legolas-Fangirl. Any enthusiasm about him written under this picture is wasted on me.

EDIT: I changed frame and background so they match my new LotR fan art better.

I didn't like Legolas since I first read LotR fifteen years ago (no discussion please, had enough), so I couldn't resist to note that if his fans would make him fall on his nose, that'd be a good start for them. Never mind. :)

I see. But as I said, I still love him. But if you don't, that's fine. Each to their own.

Just don't make fun of me, mock me or insult me because I like Legolas, cause that means war.

I don't insult anybody for what they like, but I really get angry if people don't accept that I am not their opinion and want to 'proselytise' me.
Since you say you won't do something like that and I won't mock you for your taste, there shouldn't be a problem.
I will go on mocking Legolas, of course...;)

Alright, I can live with that. I'll just turn a blind eye to that.
Also, question: what does "proselytise" mean? :?

It means that you're forcing your own religion onto other people.

I LOVE IT.
I always really loved that part in the books. I remember grinning every time thinking, "Oh, Legolas, you cheeky bastard..."
It kind of pissed me off that Elves are made out to be so stony in the movies. Yeah, I get it with the ethereal beauty or whatever, but they aren't actually supposed to be. Sam says so when Frodo asks him if he's content now that he's seen/spoken with Elves in the Fellowship when they meet with Galdor and his company in the woods! I kind of want to dig up the exact quote and send it to Peter Jackson. Repeatedly.

Thank you! :D
In LotR the elves are okay, but especially in the third Hobbit they are quite annoying.
Can't blame Jackson for everything, after all what I've heard, you should blame the studio.
(While the elves in the Hobbit book are just plain horrible, all that singing and jesting and they are completely different fom the elves in LotR who are again completely different from the elves in the Silmarillion - one can't really speak of Tolkien's elves; he didn't deliver a homogeneous characterisation of them.)

In the book he wails and complains a lot but doesn't do much. It's often say that Legolas is such a great person, but it seems just because he's an elf but not because he proves it. The oh-so-perfectness of some elves is tiresome.
In the movies, he's a show-off. He's completely overhyped and I don't understand why. His charater has not much depth. In LotR he has some nice scenes with Gimli or Aragorn, but they do the most of it.
In BotFA he's just a bloody pain in the neck.

That's the best I can do right now.

Sometimes I wonder if success of Legolas is due to the character or the actor. So often I see a really horrible character played by a good actor and fans go gaga (Snape & Draco of HP) and fans then overhype the character.

Legolas is in the Hobbit movie due to one reason= fan-service.

He's one of the "pretty boys" of the LoTR movies, (Leggy, Aragon, Boromir) and out of the Fellowship, only Aragon (supposed to be only 10), Gimli (underage) and Legolas (full grown) were alive during the Hobbit. Aragon was too young to be the hottie so they put Leggy in the movie .... then did that crappy Matrix shit X__X That's worse than the 'love triangle'  of Legolas -Mary Sue *cough* I mean Tauriel- Kili.
