A Lover Of The Light
“So,” He began, mildly, picking at his nails and praying that he seemed older than his years, “You’ve got cells enough to keep thirteen of my kin prisoner? The elves of Mirkwood must think themselves very disliked indeed, to be so prepared…”
“Our King’s stronghold is coveted, and the forest grows ever darker!” Tauriel snapped, much as Kili had done over his uncle’s honor. A grin spread over his face, even as dark red patches stained hers. Right then, this would be a way to pass the time…
So I had done wrong but you put me right
My judgement burned in the black of night
When I give less than I take
It is my fault my own mistake
We will run and scream
You will dance with me
We’ll fulfill our dreams and we’ll be free
We will be who we are
And they’ll heal our scars
Sadness will be far away…

IT’S THAT TIME AGAIN! ;_;
boneycircus are you aware that this fic is partially responsible for me writing this song?
(I think I may have reblogged this before, but I find it really hard not to.)
…I WAS NOT AWARE *starry eyes*
I am not worthy.
Seriously, this fanfic is my headcanon of post BoFA and I have this insane hope that you’ve somehow implanted your ideas into PJ’S head so that the movie will end like that as well! You write so incredibly well! ^_^
There’s a part of me that says “SHHHH don’t respond to that kind of thing be humble be sweet” and to that part of me I say STFU XD
Because I AM proud of that. I AM proud of the fact that, for all my waiting WIPs and original work that is not published yet, I struck a real chord with fandom. I presented something that even some people who vehemently HATED Tauriel and/or the idea of a ship liked, loved, and in some cases changed minds.
Because even in a love story, women are complex and nuanced and just as interesting and have just as many things at stake as their male counterparts.
That I was right-on with character development when she hadn’t even been on screen yet, because that means I’m not a failure at this, at telling stories, at using what we already know about characters to project where they may go.
I’m not full of myself over that, that I predicted SO MUCH of what we saw between them in DoS: The exact opposite, I jaw-dropped and was all “HOLY CRAP I REALLY AM A WRITER I REALLY DO UNDERSTAND HOW IT WORKS MAYBE I REALLY WILL MAKE ORIGINAL THINGS PEOPLE LIKE SOMEDAY WTF.”
…And you saying that just makes me all the more confidant :D
She matters, she matters so much, and now I want to take what I learned from Tauriel and push the genre further in my original works.
She wasn’t welcome here.
I eased a lot of people into welcoming her.
I’m really happy you see this as a stepping stone towards independent writing, and when you DO publish original work, I’ll be waiting here to gobble it up like a birthday cake and write heartbeaking songs about it! :D
