ophelie-letanneur:

Finally ! This is my version of the fellowship of the ring ( and Arwen :B ), I’ve tried to not be influenced by the movie but as per the Tolkien’s story. Hope you like it :D

This is great and I love it.

Fanfiction I need to write

Recently the fanfic floodgates really opened, and that’s great! But I can’t for the life of me bring myself to really write anything, and that’s… less great.

Story ideas that have been fluttering around for either a few weeks now, OR a few years and I just re-thought of them:

#1 Lord of the Rings: Eowyn dealing with impending motherhood. Based on some of the things she says in the book that story sounds so fascinating (since we know she had at least one child) how she reconciles her past with becoming a parent. Plus I always loved how she and Faramir named their son after Boromir, Elboron. How’d they come to that decision (since Eowyn wasn’t exactly short of dead people she could name a kid after either?) I just, aaaah, there’s even actually one whole paragraph from this story that I wrote ages ago, no more than one, lurking back in the archives somewhere. So at least there’s that.

#2 Another LOTR one. Boromir only manages to tell Aragorn that he tried to take the One Ring from Frodo, but did Merry and Pippin ever find that out? Did it change their perceptions of him? (It’s occurred to me I might be able to combine this story idea with the previous one. Ya never know I guess.)

#3 Now we’re in Star Wars territory. I so badly want to write about That One Moment from Rise of Skywalker where all the Jedi call out to Rey. I loved that so, so much. Unfortunately, how to do it is more of a question. I have like, one page so far.

My theory is that it’s because the Hobbits showed Boromir the possibility of camaraderie based on kindness and liking, as opposed to regimentation and excellence like he grew up with.

Ah my heart! 

My theory was always that it was because he was such a loving older brother. I think they sparked that protective older brother instinct in him.

BOROMIR AND THE HOBBITS

If I ever meet Sean Bean (or Billy Boyd) I’m going to ask them if all of the shots with Boromir guiding Merry and Pippin were scripted. I need to know.

Photographic evidence below the cut.

 

Let’s start with the first meeting:

You can almost see the heart eyes.

Barely out of Rivendell and already staying pretty close to them.

Oh what’s that? It’s PIPPIN CARRYING BOROMIR’S SHIELD as they walk in their little threesome behind Gandalf and Frodo.

“That’s okay Pippin, I’ll wait for you and hold out my hand to guide you into the Mines. It could be dark and scary, but I’ll protect you.”

BOROMIR’S RELATIONSHIP WITH THE HOBBITS IS SO BEAUTIFUL AND IMPORTANT!
