here’s the thing about love in The Lord of the Rings Trilogy
I get it, sometimes it gets obnoxious that people ship everything, I totally understand that. We all have a lot of feelings, I get it, this is tumblr, everyone is bursting with feelings all the time, but I wanna talk about love in Tolkien’s books (specifically the trilogy, because The Hobbit is a whole ‘nother thing that I am not emotionally prepared to talk about right now OR EVER).
Not everyone sits in bed at night thinking wistfully about Legolas and Gimli braiding their hair into their hair as a sign of affection
like I dobut the number of people who are all “lord of the rings is just about manly men being manly and occasionally falling in love with women!! god!! can’t bros just be BROS!!!” are blowing my mind right now, I genuinely do not believe we read the same books, also like what’s up with your restrictive gender norms?? Seriously:
