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-”

Geek Cred?

Today had a conversation at work with a customer that went like this: 

Dude:  "Yeah, well, I have this silly app on my phone.“ 
Me:  "Oh?”
Dude:  "It’s not a game, it’s well, do you know Lord of the Rings?“
Me:  "Yeah?”  
Dude:  "The app.  It’s an Elvish translator so I can translate English to Elvish.“ 
Me:  "Oh, cool.  Quenya or Sindarin?”
Dude:  "…..*silent*….“
Me:  ”…*?*…“
Dude:  "OMG NO FUCKING WAY.”
Dude:  "Can I marry you?“
Me:  "Only if you give me the one ring." 
Dude:  "But it’s mine.  My own.  My precious." 
Me:  "One does not simply propose to a tech goddess." 
Dude:  ”*sighs* I would have followed you … my captain…my queen.“ 
Me:  "Be at peace, son of Android." 
Dude:  ”….no really.  Can I marry you?“

The White Lady,” he murmured. “She is called a wise-woman, a healer. And yet… she sees to the center of a man, and can turn his soul to ashes, if evil be found there.”  - "Jesus H. Christ,“ I said, turning back to Jamie. "Did you ever hear of La Dame Blanche?” - "Um? Oh? Oh, aye, I've… heard the stories.“ 


"To a point, you know, it doesn’t  matter,” he said. “Whatever else you may be or whatever information you may possess, you have one invaluable attribute as a houseguest.”  - “And what’s that?” I demanded. He paused, hand on the bell, and smiled. “You’re Red Jamie’s wife,” he said softly. “And he is fond of you, my dear, is he not?”

Diana Gabaldon, Dragonfly in Amber

Okay, but whatever you’re doing, certainly don’t think about how sad the events after Aragorn’s death were.

Don’t think about two graves next to his, only half the size. And the one between them that’s not empty anymore, and the people wondering what those two did to deserve to be buried next to king Elessar. They were just halflings, the Gondorians will think.

Don’t think about Arwen, who sees all the elves sailing away, but she can’t, and she does not regret any second of her mortal life, but it just hurts. so. much. And she’s alone in the dying Lórien, slowly dying with it.

Don’t think about her conversation with Legolas, the cheerful Legolas, who loves Middle-Earth so much, but he just can’t stay. Don’t think of their mourning of Aragorn and their goodbye, because he can’t even accompany her, but he promises he will tell Elrond and Celebrian and everyone she wants that she thinks of them and loves them so much.

Don’t think that Legolas was so young. Don’t think that he could have stayed with the remaining elves, but he knew he would feel lonely even among his own kin and race. So he takes the only person who is dear to him and can at least partly understand him. And he leaves his beloved home, his Ithilien, and desperately tries to save, to prolong a life of just one friend, while the dwarf is still alive.

Don’t think about the last moments of the Fellowship, as the little grey ship sailed into the West.

Just don’t.
