This is Lord of the Rings confessions -- a blog where you can anonymously submit your opinions on anything Lord of the Rings, be it a casting choice in the films, something from the book, your ships, or even the fandom itself -- anything at all. Confessions can be submitted in the ask box.
Though we call ourselves LOTR confessions, also take confessions about anything Tolkien.
This blog was inspired by blogs such as Harry Potter Confessions and Criminal Minds Confessions.
If you're looking for a specific character or book, the tag page has most of it sorted.
Enjoy the blog! :)

Not enough people in the LOTR fandom are grateful enough for LOTR Online. Sure, it isn’t a great game, but it has brought to life a lot of Middle-earth we’ve never seen. Forochel, Thorin’s Halls, the Grey Company and Angmar are some examples, and we can finally see Tolkien’s image fully realized. LOTRO isn’t a very good game, but it is a much better representation of Middle-earth than anything else.
I really do wish that Tolkien wrote more about the Maiar. We get tons on the Valar and the Children of Illuvatar (Elves, Men, Dwarves, Hobbits) but not much about the Maiar. The Silmarillion names about five or six and the only other ones we know about are the Istari, but I would’ve thought there were many, many more. I’m just happy that there is a lot of fan-fiction about them, otherwise I would be quite disappointed.
I just wish for once I could read a Haldir fanfiction that follows canon aka a fic where he doesn’t die in Helms Deep. So many well written fanfics and then the author puts that scene in and kills it for me.
I didn’t think I cared for The Hobbit, after not reading the book and seeing the first two movies. I was too in love with LOTR to open my heart to the new and strange characters in The Hobbit, but after seeing the love for the story on Tumblr, I began to fall in love as well. And finally, after seeing a spoiler that three of the main characters die, I nearly cried on the spot. Now I know I need to read the book before I see the last movie, and I know I’m going to love it!
The Hobbit may have been written for children but I think people try to use that as a reason to reduce it. By today’s standards this book isn’t just for children, definitely not. There’s so much fighting and death.
In order to truly enjoy the movies, I have to look at the books and movies as separate entities. I had to do this during the Desolation of Smaug when Bombour was having his massive scene on the river. My initial thought was that Tolkien would be rolling in his grave.
I have a crush on a guy who looks like a Noldor. He’s very tall, quite thin, has grey eyes and really long brown hair. When I stand next to him I feel like he’s some Elven prince and I’m somekind of peasant orc and I have no chance with him :(
