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! :)

I grew up with the Lord of the Rings but I had trouble keeping track of names straight other than the basics (Frodo, Aragorn, etc.) but I always told my older brother that I loved the blonde guy with the dark eyebrows. Now that I am older I have recently rediscovered my love for the series and my favorite character is Éomer. Then I realized that he was the guy that I loved so much and he has been my favorite since the beginning.
I think Eomer is so underrated. He was actually one of the important characters in both. TTT and RotK. And even though he was sure Eowyn doesn’t know how to fight, you can still see the little details in the two movies between them, how much they love each other as siblings. He’s not just about fighting as people see him. And him crying as he finds Eowyn almost dead it RotK is heartbreaking. He is a good character and I really, really think he should get more credit.
In the extended version of the LoTR movies, when Éomer tells Éowyn that war is the province of men I was very disappointed, because as soon as he took his helmet off when he met Aragorn, Gimli and Legolas, I knew he was the perfect knight for me. But then in RotK when he finds her on the battlefield I could see why he’d told her that, it wasn’t because he thought she couldn’t fight but because he was too afraid of losing her.
The first time I saw LotR I thought Eomer was weird. The second time I thought he was arrogant. The third time I decided I really quite like him. Now every time I see LotR I become more attracted to him.
A lot of people think Faramir is a an underrated character. While that may be true, I think Éomer is even more so. He was faithful to Théoden even when he was being controlled by Saurman, he led the attack on the Uruk-hai and helped Aragorn, Legolas, and Gimli when it was against the law. He fought bravely alongside Aragorn twice and during his reign as king was called Éomer Éadig, or “the Blessed”. He deserves so much more credit. I wish there was more of him in the movies.
