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, we're happy to 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 saw the remix of “They’re Taking The Hobbits To Isengard” right before I got into LOTR, so I’ve always thought of Isengard as a cheerful, fun place. I was surprised when I was reading the books and discovered that it was, in fact, the lair of the malicious Saruman and home to many orcs.
I watched the movies first but I’ve started reading the books recently and as hard as watching Boromir die in the movies was, reading the funeral Gimli, Aragorn, and Legolas did for him was so hard for me that I had to put the book down and cry for a while before I could even attempt to continue and it has made it really hard to keep reading at all even now.
When the LOTR movie trilogy came out. I was a huge fangirl and with my friend at the time we even studied some elvish. After some years it faded and I grew older. Then came The Hobbit movie. It all came back to me, when I saw it for the first time, I felt so happy, the nostalgia. And then I found a new friend that we “fangirl” with. Now, as an adult, I am finally realizing my wish and travelling to New Zealand, along with my friend. This is the best time of my life, I feel like I’m a teen again.
I first watched lotr when I was 7 (truth). So basically I have grown up with it. I feel that lotr and tolkien is my home and that when I watch the movies or read the books I feel comfortable and at home.
I really love Pippin’s character, but I feel people don’t give him much credit. He’s loyal to his friends, and brave as well. A lot of people just see him A’s a screwup, or “the hobbit who said ‘what about second breakfast’”
I spend hours on Tumblr, however I don’t actually own an account, I’ve been wanting to make one recently but I don’t want anyone to think I’m ‘just one of those new Hobbit fangirls’ - I’ve been in the Middle Earth world for as long as I can recall.
I have loved LoTR ever since I was a child, it always felt so personal and a world that was just mine, but now since The Hobbit has been released I feel like my world has been exposed to thousands of new fans that won’t ever understand and feel how strong I do about it - it both annoys me and yet still makes me feel proud, that countless others will also enjoy such magnificence.
