“…and it was then that Elrond first saw Celebrían, and loved her, though he said nothing of it.” - History of Galadriel and Celeborn.
(totally ridiculous and ooc I’m sure but just let me indulge myself in cheesy romantic subplots haha… I also have a Thing for nerdy, lovesick, lovingly-and-adorably-awkward-around-his-crush Elrond okay??)
renora is so pure? they’ve been best friends since, as toddlers, they found each other hiding from a village-murdering monster. they’ve been protecting and caring about each other for like 10 years!! they’ve been by each other’s side for that long! they love each other so much! it’s one of the sweetest, most wholesome relationships in the series and i absolutely loved the importance they had in volume 4. i honestly dont care whether they end up dating or not, as long as theyre together. platonic or romantic, they will never leave each other’s side and i just love them so much.
oh sorry guys i guess if i ever want to cosplay joshua i have to get a bunch of roman larpers to cover me in pitch, light me on fire, and push me into the grand canyon because you know we gotta stay ~lore friendly~ for our cosplays or something
I'm tipsy. Talk to me about Tucker's fear of failure.
HEY TIPSY I AM ALSO TIPSY
Tucker’s whole deal of ‘whatever I’m not even gonna engage in or outwardly care about this thing that I’m not confident in!!’ thing at the start is really telling of someone who doesn’t like to do things they can’t ace (even if doing it is a necessary precursor for acing it). He says “I’m a lover not a figther” while being IN THE ARMY. Maybe he’s excellent in bed who knows but he sure makes an effort to have that rep, going as far as to video tape things in order to see ‘what works and what doesn’t (not a direct quote that’s why it’s ‘ and not “ I don’t remember what he said but sth like that I think?) You know people who say “okay but I’m REALLY BAD AT DRAWING” before they do their round in pictionary? and people who try really hard at this one thing and then brag about it to the point where they’re “that one person who does X thing”? Yeah thats what I mean. NeverMIND that when he’s trhust into a role of needing to do things he’s not used to bc he has no choice, his failure has devastating effects for him, which is bad enough even when you aren’t a person who already feels like every mistake is devastating.
