Listen I have a lot of thoughts about Legolas . I always pictured him a bit differently than how he was portrayed in the films, and while I think they got a lot of parts right, there’s some parts where they lacked and where I like to insert my own ideas to better imagine the character I understood him as since Tolkien added him late.
Here’s my thoughts in no particular order
1. Black hair
2. Olive skin
3. Eyes that are like the cloaks Galadriel gives the Fellowship in that they never seem to be the same hue
4. Always smiling softly like he knows what’s going on
5. MAKE HIM ACTUALLY SING??????!! HIS SONGS BREAK MY HEART
6. Not biased towards dwarves in that UGLY way but like in the kid-raised-in-right wing-home-carefully-unlearning way
7. FUNNY IN THE WAY THE KID WHO RARELY SPEAKS IN CLASS IS FUNNY
8. Helpful without needing to be and like knowing when ppl need help .
9. Young feeling.
10. Tattoos of vines tbh all up on his face and limbs n shit like he literally came from the dense woods in wartime let him blend in he’s the last prince of his people let him be hidden away and forest
11. Does NOT ACTUALLY UNDERSTAND SAURON LIKE HE THINKS HE DOES
12. MAKE HIM ACTIVELY TRY TO NOT BE TEMPTED BY THE RING MAKE IT HARD FOR HIM BC THE POWER OF THE ELVES IS WANING !!! IT WOULD NOT BE EASY FOR HIM !!! OMFG THAT CONFLICT IS NEVER SHOWN !!!!
13. Make him MISS SOME SHOTS WITH HIS ARROWS when he is VISIBLY AFRAID !!! (2 ideas in one , radical I know!!)
14. Have him put his head in his hands at least once .
15. Make him talk to Merry as Pippin even though they aren’t there when he’s actively searching to save them .
16. Make him console people somewhat through humour like he does in the books !
17. WHERE was his friendship with gimli after the war ?
WHERE was the scene where they explored each other’s homes and left for the undying lands ?
18. Make Legolas androgynous 2kforever
19. Personally I was so excited to see mhis struggle to comprehend what is going on at the Black Gate when the Mouth of Sauron brings Frodo’s mithril shirt out like….. where’s his raw despair ?
