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 hate female warriors in Middle-Earth. It’s not that I hate girls. It’s not that I don’t think they can fight. It’s that the we finds some way to make that warrior be absolutely beautiful while fighting. You don’t apply lip gloss while fighting, you make winces and war cries! Although, female warriors are a brilliant idea, just not treated with proper warrior respect.
I find it so annoying when people think Boromir was a bad person. Nobody except the true fans realize that the ring was practically controlling him, mixed with a desire to protect the ones he loved. Boromir was a true hero, he died protecting the hobbits he cursed during his brief insanity. I’d like to see any other human try to do better.
Nothing would make me happier if Peter Jackson asked Enya or Annie Lennox to come back and sing the orginal song for “There and Back Again”. Both of their songs from the Rings trilogy were so emotional and it would make sense for either one of them to sing for what will probably be the most emotional film of the Hobbit Trilogy.
Growing up, Arwen was my favorite character and I was a little bumped out that she wasnt going to make an appearance in The Hobbit. I’m not angry at Peter Jackson for doing it, it’s just she was around at the time and I thought at least she could have made a small cameo.
I really don’t understand why people are complainging about Legolas being in The Hobbit. He is immortal after all, so he would have been around at the time. Also, I highly doubt Legolas would have just stayed in the palace of Mirkwood, keeping to himself.I know he would be out fighting orcs. I’m also really anxious to the transformation he is bound to make in There and Back Again and how that will turn him into the deadly, yet soft spoken elf we fall in love with in The Lord of The Rings. I thank Peter Jackson for bringing him back and after seeing The Desolation of Smaug, Orlando Bloom continues to kick ass.
Every time I see a post say “I’m so sorry for Faramir because Denethor was such a terrible father!” or something along those lines, I have to tell myself that they’re talking about the movies characters and not the books. I just want people to know that Faramir and Denethor in the books are WAYS more wiser, stronger, and nobler than the ones in the movies.
"You can’t help me anymore… go home." This absolutely killed me. Not just because they had practically walked all of Middle-Earth to destroy the ring, but because Sam really LOVED Frodo. Samwise Gamgee is a model best friend.
