I’m just back from telling Bandwench how much I liked the Frodo manip.

You wrote above regarding your Frodo Art Travesty ‘Before the Fire…’

I still am of two minds about it.

I have always thought this particular piece of art very tastefully done. There is only a hint of what else may be seen, and Frodo is deep in thought not looking at the viewer.

I would not have liked it with real-life EW’s face because that is not my thing (each to his own). Give me Frodo, make-up, wig and all and I’m there 111%.

I hope Mr Wood continues to be unconcerned about the manips. I know I’m being naive but I pray no one will overstep the line. Unfortunately there are some very loathsome personages out there. I love and appreciate what he did with film Frodo. *Please God protect him*

Ah, Este, what a sweetie you are (re: Before the Fire). Oh, I have come to think that is a very nice manip; it only worried me because I had made it from a porny pin-up. If I had found the same body in a painting, I wouldn't have been a bit concerned. I just kept wondering whose body that was, and whether I ought to credit him, LOL!

I am sure EW's fans mean him well, however they express it, and I think he knows that. Almost never have I read LJ's in which fans bore ill will toward EW, although some have been pretty nasty towards his girl friends. Still, I don't get the impression they'd actually stalk either of them or send hate mail to his house. The majority I've posts I've read every where, in fact, have been notably protective. I suppose it seems contraditory that a fan could be protective of his happiness, yet create very intimate things based on his personal life, but many of us are full of paradoxical feelings and inclinations.

All in all, I am very happy I posted Bandwench's manip, a) because it's gorgeous and I wanted more people to be able to see it and b) because perhaps it has been a good thing to talk about these concerns in print. Taerie's been great presenting one side of the argument, and I have perhaps overstated my own position, trying to represent the more liberal view (which Bagma stepped in and stated much better! Thanks, Bagma!).

I told Taerie here, and I told Bandwench in an email, there are probably other fans who have been reading this thread but not speaking, for whom the discussion has been helpful, simply to help them get clearer about what they themselves feel and think on this issue. :)

I forgot to say that's GREAT that you said something to Bandwench. I wanted her to know how many of us looooved that manip. Not too racy, just Beautiful Nude Frodo. *sigh*
