The rumor arose after the interview, followed by a private photo, coming from some facebook account.

This was especially evident after LOTR with all the Frodo/Sam jokes about their "real" relationship. The fact that two men could truly love each other in a nonsexual way seems an alien concept.

Naaa.. everything is sexual.

I really have the impression now it's much much more worse than it was during the LotR time, social media only add a lot to this (there was just no tumblr during LotR)- and what surprises me most: it's entirely accepted ... I mean, just look at all the Thorduil stuff going through the net, I've never read a blaming post on one of those pics but I do remember the screams of the internet community during LotR times when certain buzzwords were mentioned quite well: "oh how could you?? how dare you??"

^^ and for some it's not enough to ship the characters (I don't have a problem with that), they do even ship the real existing people, searching for "special" photos (or photoshop them if they do not exist).

Obsessed with the Silmarillion, book purist & Thranduil junkie in one person ;)

Serving Middle-Earth since 1995
