I'm not a fan either

Especially all this "shipping" nonsense. I'm a writer as well and although I'll admit that the story I'm currently working on is loosely inspired by ME, (there are elves and it occurs in the ancient past of our world) I am working very hard to create my own unique world and unique characters with a unique story. (making up names is hard) I have to say, should I ever get published and should people be so kind as to like it enough to write fan fiction about it, I would avoid it at all costs as well lest I get upset because they have the characters doing things I would not have them do.

*rant beginning to well up from within* Lord help me if I ever saw anyone pulling an "EL James" on any of my characters. I'd probably throw my laptop out the window and throw up. (I'm sorry if that sounds harsh but I personally despise the very idea of 50 Shade of Grey and I have not read it and never ever will. I simply do not believe in allowing that sort of thing into my mind.)

Yeah, I've unintentionally seen some of that "slash" artwork as well while looking for other things and I think they are pretty distasteful too. If Tolkien ever saw any of it, I just know he'd roll over in his grave! I don't like it when fictional characters get shipped, but I especially dislike the shipping of real people. It's like, hello? These are real people with real lives and real feelings. Whether they're celebrities or not shouldn't matter. They should be allowed privacy and treated with the same amount of respect and dignity that every human being deserves! *rant over*

btw: very nice picture of Thranduil. I like they way it's colored. Is that what you would call sepia tone?

"And we find what we're made of
Through the open door
Is it fear you're afraid of?
What are you waiting for?
Love alone is worth the fight."
