NF-Lee's Gildor and Frodo

K-D is down, during which I find an essay by Mary Borsellino....

It looks like K-D is down. I checked the alternate "Frodo's Harem on LJ" site, but didn't see any new entries…. My apologies to you who have PM'd me, since I can't open them. Link to Harem LJ site, in case you have lost it:

Because I can't bear to write an entry without using an image, I decided to post this one I made to include in a comment for my recent "Sam/Frodo hug" screencap entry:

~ In which Rosie demonstrates why she wins fanfic's "good sport" award...

I didn't find what I was looking for, but I found something else. An essay. A really, really good essay. An essay on the character of Rosie:

Expecting You Since the Spring: Examining Rosie Cotton, by Mary Borsellino:

I recognized the name at once and started reading. She was "famous" in the world of Frodo fanfic, I knew. Collapse )

Two more essays: Aratlithiel on the Films, Lobelia S-B on the maleness of hobbits

[Warning: some adult content in quoted materials]

~ Film-Frodo looking bookishly, "kick-ass," at Cirith Ungol.

Oh, EXCRETA! Two more great essays!

One by Aratlithiel and another by Lobelia Sackville-Baggins. Many of you have no doubt read these, but for us relative newbies, I just want to give a little ‘heads up’….Collapse )

I meant this for K-D's Fanfiction thread, but, since it's still down....

~ Elijah Wood in the 1995 rock video for Ridiculous Thoughts, by the Cranberries:

My, my, how I love the angst on that kid's face. It's just perfect for Willow-wode's sorely afflicted hobbit 'tween hero, Rites of Passage Frodo, Middle-earth's, "Boy Who Lived" (barely).

I would have posted these remarks in Khazad-dum's "Fanfiction" thread, but it's still down....Collapse )
