Queen of the Greenwood

Little sketch of Legolas’ Mother/Thranduil’s wife!
Middle Earth sucks me in from time to time (totally not complaining!) ;)

It’s a pity they took out most mentions of her from the movies as it gave a lot more depth into Thranduil’s character and his relationship with his son (also an interesting parallel with Tauriel’s business), even if, technically speaking, practically none of it was canon.

Today in Middle-Earth: Aragorn takes the ‘Paths of the Dead' (March 8th, 3019 T.A.)

 And so they came at last deep into the glen; and there stood a sheer wall of rock, and in the wall the Dark Door gaped before them like the mouth of night. Signs and figures were carved above its wide arch too dim to read, and fear flowed from it like a grey vapour. 

   The company halted, and there was not a heart among them that did not quail, unless it were the heart of Legolas of the Elves, for whom the ghosts of Men have no terror.

Quick mini shoot that starship-amaura did for me at the start of April. I didn’t have proper makeup; I had just jumped out of an Usagi cosplay and into Galadriel because I had just received my wig in the mail. 
I plan to have better makeup and my ears will be much better blended next time I’m able to do a shoot.

bagginshield is real. I know a lot of people object to this but I genuinely believe there was romantic interest between bilbo and thorin (obviously there is in the films) but like I’ve even re-read the book plus lotr just to see if there was a possibility and it totally could be even if it wasn’t tolkien’s intension. it’s unbelievable how real it could be. like in all the poems bilbo wrote there’s just thorin written all over it, and there’s also the fact he never married. 60 years is a long time to be alone, plus he’s rich af so all the hobbit lasses would’ve been like ooo yeah bilbo can I touch your sword. and he’s like NO BECAUSE I LEFT MY HEART IN THE TOMBS OF EREBOR. I think more than anything though it just makes me so happy. obviously thorin dying has destroyed me. but the fact that bilbo goes to the grey havens to take the ship to valinor, and he knows he’s going to see thorin again in the undying lands, and he’s going to go on another adventure with him. this is the shit i live for
