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! :)

A lot of people hate on Aragorn/Arwen, but I love them. They’re the perfect couple, really. I don’t honestly think they’re ‘boring’ or that PJ ‘made it up.’ In the appendices there was an entire chapter titled ‘The Tale of Aragorn and Arwen.’ I really wish people could STOP hating on them.
Best friend ships, like Frodo and Sam, or Fili and Kili (or Harry and Ron in Harry Potter) annoy me. I think it’s stupid that they can’t just be friends. So they hug once on Mt. Doom and they’re gay. I hate that because it really takes away from their friendship.
I’m really torn about all the nods to Christianity that were woven into the Silmarillion and Lord of the Rings. On one hand, I’m religious, so it’s really pleasant, but on the other hand, I like cheering for Sauron (But not Morgoth if you’re wondering) and those under him. Which in turn means I’m rooting against God. Bit of a dilemma, eh?
Plus, I probably don’t even need to bring up how it’s really screwed up that the Elves are the favored people who can do(virtually) no wrong and Orcs are, even in the eyes of Maiar/Angels like Gandalf, just foul and not deserving of existence. And it bothers me how everyone just seems to go along with that interpretation.
In T.L.O.T.R: T.T.T when Sam said “But in the end, it’s only a passing thing, this shadow. Even darkness must pass. A new day will come. And when the sun shines it will shine out the clearer”. This made me break down into tears because it made me realise that my depression will pass, that even this darkness inside of me will go. I know this sounds really stupid but, honestly, Lord Of The Rings has helped me so much with everything; I don’t know where I would be without it.
I hate it when people say, “Well why didn’t they just take the eagles? My answer to that is this: To take the eagles would have just meant a quick fail. For all we know, there are at LEAST 9 black wyverns that probably would kicked the eagle’s buts in the ROTK if they hadn’t been taken the wyverns by surprise. So that might have been a huge problem getting the ring to the cracks of doom. Also, a less direct way of looking at it, when Sauron died, like 90% of the orcs were in Mordor, either being captured killed, or falling in a sinkhole. If Sauron were killed so quick the Orcs would be scattered, being a huge problem after the fall of the dark lord.
Lord of the Rings are one of those books that when it ended, I felt so deeply sad because I didn’t want it to end.I wanted it to go on forever. Middle Earth felt like home to me and in a way, I bonded with the characters.
It’s strange how people say the dialogue in the books is slow and dull compared to the movies. I think it’s much more epic in the books, especially the Two Towers. I looked forward to any part where either Faramir, Aragorn or Gimli spoke, because their lines were amazing!
