LOTR fandom vs Silmarillion fandom

LOTR fandom:

- elves are so pure and innocent
- Sauron is the bad guy
- gay ships everywhere
- 99% of memes include Legolas
- “why couldn’t the eagles-”

Silmarillion fandom:

- elves’ killing spree
- everybody loves Mairon
- gay ships everywhere except they’re 10 times more intense and there’s 10 times more of them
- 99% of memes include Feanorians
- 5-hour-long lectures on “why couldn’t the eagles-”

And of course I’d give you the moon and all the stars, of course, of course, but I just don’t think they’re mine to give. More ambitious lovers have already lain their claims to them and the last thing I want to do is anger ancient adoration.

And besides, what would you do with a ball of flame and fire? What would I do if it swallowed you? No, I can’t take that risk, no.

But I will give you my hand and you can hold it and we’ll be happy.
