Bilbo is soooo not alone in being robbed by PJ's adaptation. Thranduil became a jerk who was also tempted by the arkenstone. Bombur became a prop. The Master went from a generic but responsible leader to a douchebag (I can't think of any reason but for Thorin to look better by comparison) Dain, the prophecied ruler, had the prophecy rewritten and given to Thorin, leaving him "Thorin's crazy cousin on a pig" the list goes on. You're not alone. :)
SO TRUE BESTIE!! 😩👏👏
I've said it before I'll say it again: PJ movies are Thorin propoganda bc edgy obnoxious sadboy antiheroes were all the rage in 2012 (especially if you could ship them with a Martin Freeman character coughcough) so half the cast gets pinked to give Thorin the limelight. And yet somehow even by making him less funny and more of a dick it worked and people simp 😩 anyway
And really, justice for the rest of the cast! It's totally insane that Bombur had all his lines cut and yet Legolas can gave a whole subplot in a story he shouldn't even be in 🙄

Ofelia (OC) - Character Sheet
Yes, I made another OC. And I am so happy to share her with you all. I hope you will love her as much as I do and as much as we love Naya.
General Information and Appearance:
Name: Ofelia Took
Nickname: Kíli calls her Feli, although she hates it.
Origin: Hobbit from the Shire
Birthday: June 21st TA2896
Relationship Status: In a courtship with Kíli
Height: 3’7, she is quite tall for a Hobbit
Skin Color: Pale Ivory
Hairstyle: Cut to her shoulders. She wears her courtship braid on the right side of her head.
Hair Color: Black
Eye Color: Blue
Distinguishing Features: She has a small scar above her lips, barely noticeable, and a tattoo on her left ankle.
Accessories: She has an orbital piercing on her right ear and both her lobes are pierced.
Personality, Relationships and Hobbies:
Ofelia is hot-blooded and impetuous. She often acts before she thinks, even if it puts her life in danger. But she says she likes it, she likes the thrill. She has always been like that, even as a child, which would give her family a few heart attacks.
She is also extremely sensitive. She cries often, mostly when people yell at her or when she is angry/frustrated. It often results in people calling her a crybaby and she hates that more than anything.
She often pretends that she is a tough, cold-hearted person who does not care about anything, but when you really know her, you quickly realize that she is an absolute sweetheart.
Ofelia is Bilbo’s cousin. She is the daughter of one of Belladonna’s many siblings. As children, they were really close to each other. But they grew apart and kind of stopped talking. That was until the quest.
Ofelia never had many friends. So when she joined the company she was extremely excited and tried to befriend everyone. Including Thorin. She would even sit next to Bifur and listen to him talking to her even if she could not understand a thing. But out of all of them, she found a best friend in Ori. From the outside, they look completely different. But they actually are very similar.
Ofelia and Kíli probably fell in love the moment he pushed through Bilbo’s door. But if you ask them, they will tell you that it happened later on. They immediately clicked together. But when Tauriel came into the painting, Ofelia thought Kíli had fallen in love with her instead and kind of walked away from him. It is only after reclaiming Erebor, and long long talking sessions, that she proposed her courtship, respecting all dwarven customs.
Ofelia is an avid reader. She loves any type of book but her favorites are legends and tales. When Kíli is sick, she likes to read to him until he falls asleep.
She is passionate about plants and medicine. At first, it was just a hobby but one day, she decided to ask Oín to become his apprentice. Of course, everyone was delighted, mostly Kíli who always encourages her to pursue her dreams.

tierlist of all The Hobbit adaptations that I've seen
1. The Hobbit film (1977) by Rankin/Bass
The main reason for this film being the first is that they actually included almost everything from the book and thus managed to keep the plot and main points of the story similar to the original text. Not to mention that the songs did a good job bringing the poems to life, even their own additions strengthening the overall story. (9/10 for how they portrayed the Elf-king)
2. The Hobbit television play (1985) by Vladimir Latyshev
Though it doesn't show several key scenes and characters, the teleplay still manages to be one of the best adaptations of the novel. It's second in the list for several reasons, one of them being the fact that they cleverly made Tolkien himself the narrator of the story, something no other adaptation has done. The other main reason being that this adaptation managed to pinpoint the whimsical vibe of The Hobbit. (7/10 for the epic music)
3. Hobitit TV series (1993) by Timo Torikka
The events of The Hobbit were shown in just one 30 minute episode to explain the history of the ring. The only material it uses from the book is the meeting of Bilbo and Gollum. Showing just this is the reason for it's third place. Overall has a great portrayal of both their characters. (3/10 for not actually being an adaptation of The Hobbit)
4. The Hobbit film trilogy (2012, 2013, 2014) by Peter Jackson
By far the longest adaptation, around 8 hours in total, which is because of all the added things that were never mentioned in the book. Gets fourth place because they tried to make a whimsical and fairytale-like story into an action movie filled with battles while trying to recreate The Lord of the Rings. They also moved the focus of the story from Bilbo and his journey to all the battles he never even witnessed. (2/10 for Gollum)
5. The Hobbit short film (1967) by Gene Deitch
This is the shortest adaptation, just under 12 minutes, and in my opinion the worst one. The story is barely the same, the film having just a few key scenes in common with the book. They added a character, princess Mirka, and got rid of most the characters from the original text. They tried to make Bilbo a heroic dragon slayer and gave him a love interest. (0.5/10 for Slag the dragon)
