    LOTR / The Hobbit

    Okay so regarding your love of Thranduil @Rumpelstiltskin, I just wanna throw out that even though he's barely mentioned in any of the books, I seriously love how Lee Pace () portrayed him in the Hobbit movies. Because he was beauty, he was grace, and he would definitely punch you in the face. I think that one of my favorite things about LotR/The Hobbit is the complexity with which JRR Tolkien wrote each and every character. Smeagol/Gollum and even Sauron had some depth to their characters. This is something I think some contemporary authors have lost -- giving all or nearly all of their characters more than just one or two dimensions within the story. Yes Tolkien did like to sit on describing the scenery quite often, but he also had a lot of his characters talk for long periods of time with each other, which allowed for more of that characterization to shine through. I think my favorite character of the Dwarves is Fili or Kili. They are the youngest and therefore the silliest and happy-go-lucky (ish) that they can be. But they also have very good skills and training for battles and support Thorin completely. I just also love LotR so much but haven't had time lately to go back and re-read the books / re-watch the movies.

    Felpata_Lupin's reviews

    Would it be too much trouble if I grabbed a slot, Chiara? Story & Author Name: The Grass Is Greener on the Other Side (Or So They Say) [M] by Rynna AureliaWarnings & Advisories: Swearing, brief/mentioned violence, discussion of child abuse (Nothing graphic).Genres: Angst, Action/Adventure, Family, Hurt/Comfort, DramaLength: 16 chapters, over 50K currently. (First couple chapters, for this request if it's convenient for you, then?)Ships: James Potter/Lily Evans, various minor ships (Mostly Neville/Hermione at the moment). Summary: James and Lily are mysteriously resurrected during Halloween of Female!Harry's (Charlotte Potter) Fourth Year. From there, the aftereffects ripple throughout Hogwarts and the rest of the Wizarding World as a family tries to heal itself thirteen years later. Areas of Concern: Characterization, characterization, characterization. (Wow, try saying that three times fast...) I'm really worried that I'm writing everyone inconsistently, and if my pacing and plotting's alright. Additionally, any constructive criticism would be much appreciated, if you'd be willing.

    Press Release: Week 4 Assignments

    You're right, this was a math error. Using the standard of 150 characters in 1000 words, this should be approx 16,650 characters instead to get to 2500 words. So go with that.

    The Cute Things in Your Fandom

    Harry Potter: How much Hagrid cares about his pets, the trio first year (They are precious in so many ways), Neville working on his dancing before the Yule Ball, so much else... Lord of the Rings: Sam and his taters, Gimli and Legolas in Return of the King, Tom Bombadil and his wife. The Hobbit: The Company. Thorin and Bilbo. Fili and Kili. Bilbo losing his mind over dwarves. Fullmetal Alchemist: Anytime Ed loses it (That one may just be me, but I find it hilarious and adorable), Roy and Riza (He pretended to be drunk, just to give her flowers!), Al and Ed, Nina Tucker as a child, Maes Hughes ALL THE TIME. Merlin: Arthur and Merlin refusing to admit they can stand each other, then almost hugging. Arthur being head over heels for Gwen. Geez, this is better than cat videos.

    Oh my god I'm so sorry I thought I'd already answered this! Song lyrics are absolutely okay to use - with the exception of anything owned by Disney (so that goes for musicals owned by Disney too), so long as it's credited and as long as at least 90% of the chapter is original material (i.e. stuff you wrote yourself). So the example above would be perfectly fine!

    BBC Merlin. Dear God, yes. Um, will work out kinks in certain plot in the future. But will involve Arthur, Merlin, and company kicking ass and taking names. Might possibly fall into crack somewhere along the line, but it will be brotherly crack with enough feels to compensate.
