#sam and frodo
Surprisingly, I don’t ship Sam and Frodo. Or Bilbo and Thorin. Two big ships and I don’t even like them, but I wish I did.

Whatever else you think about Tolkien's male characters' relationships, whether you think of them as 'just good friends' or 'brothers in arms' (eyebrow raised: not sure it always means what you think it means, my modern heterosexual oblivions - pretty sure some very queer ancient Greeks, not to mention some fabulous Georgian and Victorian men could wax pretty poetical about the love between 'brothers-in-arms') love and tenderness between men was something that Tolkien was consistently interested in exploring. The depths of it, the desires behind it, how far love could take a relationship, what actions love and jealousy would lead to, and how far the boundaries of normative male love could be crossed or dismantled. And what ensues when heteronormative boundaries in relationships are crossed (i.e. when characters keep getting closer and closer). Nowhere in the text, in any of Tolkien's texts is this exploration of male same-sex love given parameters that exclude erotic desire and love and sometimes outright homosexual relationships (looking directly at you, Beleg and Turin).

3, 6, and 28 :>
Already did 3!
6. Do you have a certain kind of ship you’re more attracted to?
OH BOY APPARENTLY 🤣 (You may be sorry you asked.) I am a friends-to-lovers person, and the things that suck me in are characters who you can tell almost immediately just know each other so, so intimately. I love characters who have known each other since childhood or spent many years together, who can speak in glances without saying anything, who know each other almost better than they know themselves. I'll read whatever kind of getting together story people will give me, but I tend to write established relationships- I'm more interested in the challenges they face together than drawn-out pining or first time love confessions. I like the relationships that almost don't need them. I crave history, whether it's Liu Kang and Kung Lao protecting each other and training and dreaming together since they were children, or the hundreds of years of life you can literally see on the walls of skekGra and urGoh's home, or the entirety of human existence distilled into little gifts and gestures and food for Aziraphale and Crowley. To go back to that post about Tolkien characters expressing love through devotion and following, that is part of all of these. I love characters who would face anything as long as it is with Their Person. I love Python following Forsyth away from home and into war because he never wanted to be a soldier but being without him would be so much worse. I love Fingon walking into Thangorodrim alone because if no one else is going to rescue Maedhros he damn well will- and following him into both kinslaying and an ultimately doomed battle because, like another first-age elf, sometimes love leads him more than wisdom. I love Legolas building a boat, because if he can no longer resist the call of the sea, Gimli is going with him.
I love characters who cannot bear to live without each other.
These are often male/male relationships, not because I'm not into women (I am both nonbinary and super bi) or don't like female characters, but because it's male characters whose relationships tend to be written this way. I am glad to see that slowly changing, but it's. Slowly. Me personally finding the characters attractive is a nice bonus but not a requirement. XD (cough GraGoh XDD) There are all sorts of other ship dynamics I enjoy, including plenty of wlw and even some straight ones, but these are the ones that just like. Grab me by the soul, for whatever reason.
One thing that legit makes me see red is being accused of somehow cheapening a platonic same-gender relationship by adding romance, because the platonic stuff is like 75% of the appeal to me? Like yeah flirting or smut about hot people is fun but that alone will never grab my attention for any length of time or get me to create something. I like the element of turning those relationships into romances, because they have so much more depth than a lot of hetero romances in media I'm told I'm supposed to care about, but they don't lose anything.
28. What is your best shipping advice?
Honestly just like what you like without feeling like you have to apologize for it and do you. It can be good to critically engage with why you like or dislike things, but you ultimately are gonna like what you like. Just don't be a dick to other people XD

The Butterfly Effect-Where It All Begins
(I apologize, It’s a bit rewritten after my blog got deleted. Sorry!)
You had come to the renaissance festival for your friends birthday. Your friend having brought you for their birthday.
That’s how you ended up in front of a small shady looking stall. The seller is dressed as a rogue, their hood pulled low to obscure their face. You aren’t even sure how they can see anything like that. You had tried to brush off their advances. They claimed they had the perfect ring for you. You had wanted the one with the dragon curled around a pearl.
Instead they were talking up a thick silver band with topaz butterflies embedded in it. It was obviously waaaayyy out of your price range. You knew they were just trying to make a large sale. Or so you thought.
“Go on try it on!” They beam, holding it out for you. For the briefest moment you saw one of the butterflies flutter its wings. You take a step back in alarm.
You didn’t even get to finish before they’re sliding it onto you middle finger. When did they grab your hand? To your wonder it fits perfectly. The rogue grins as they clap their hands.
“Oh, I knew it wanted you! Not just anyone can wear one of these. It takes someone very very very special,” they chuckle clasping their hands together. You try to pull the ring off only to find it’s become stuck. What the hell? Did they out superglue on it or something?! You gave another sharp tug but the ring didn’t budge.
“Oh, and good luck. You’re going to need it!” They grinned pushing you backwards. You fell, a panicked shout leaving your throat. Your world tilted and you found yourself falling through leaves. Leaves? It wasn’t even fall!
As the orange and black colors swirled around you realized they weren’t leaves at all. They were Monarch butterflies! The persons gleeful cackle was swallowed up amongst the tiny wingbeats. Small rays of light peeked through the mass of butterflies. It almost felt like you were floating. You reached your hand out to tentatively touch on. Your fingers barely brushing against a papery wing.
And just like that they left you. Swirling up into the sky leaving you to free fall to the ground below. You landed with a harsh thud. Pushing yourself upright you met the eyes of someone who shouldn’t exist. That you’d seen in maybe a movie or fan art. Read about in books. But there was no way-
“What the hell was that all about?” They blurted.
Peter Jackson decided the world wasn’t ready for this in 2003

not to lotr post out of nowhere but the way sam and frodo care for each other in the journey to mordor is literally peak romance. sam is always asking to carry the ring because hes worried about frodo! he can't stand to see him suffer like this, alone, when sam is right there!! he wants to help, he's always wanted to help in any way he can!! but frodo can't let him, frodo can't subject sam to the pain of the ring, he has to do it himself. it's like this constant battle of "i love you, let me take this" "and I love YOU, so I will not let you take this"

So here’s how it is in my mind;
Faramir is a trans bisexual (they/he) in a relationship with Eomer (he/him)
Eowyn is a trans ace lesbian (she/her) and hella gay for Arwen, also a lesbian (she/they)
Then there’s Aragorn (he/they) in a relationship with Boromir (he/him) and both of them are ace (Boromir is sex repulsed, Aragorn has no interest)
Legolas (she/they/xe) is with Gimli (any pronoun is fine unless they tell you not to use it)
Was Merry (they/them) ever married? Idk, doesn’t matter, they’re aro/ace now, but Pippin (he/she) is married and I don’t have any ideas for her aside from his pronouns but whatever
Sam (she/her) is in a poly relationship with Frodo (they/them) and Rosie (she/her) and all their children aaaahhh (holy shit there are so many?? I really love how their daughter Goldilocks married Pippin’s son Faramir, and also how Pippin’s son is named Faramir)
Gandalf is... Gandalf. I think we all know what that means. Gayer than the rainbow of Saruman’s robes.
