  • Bubba: Nickname of Thranduil's beloved War-Elk. See also "Maximum Fabulosity Exposure"

  • Elvenking, The: That's right, that's how it's supposed to be written
  • Facemelt: That thing Thranduil does in T&T
  • Fanart: Popular post subject/title. Beacon for Thralls, as sure as moths dive into flames. See also "Pretty!"
    (Helpful reference for the threadlard inspired: See the "IMAGES" section of "The TA (very) Quickie Help/TIPS for adding IMAGES and POSTING" sections in this README FOR ALL TA Posters)
  • FEAST: Shorthand for Flustered Elrond AND Sassy Thranduil. In honour of Thranduil sass/badassery resulting in Elrond raising his eyebrows disapprovingly. May involve dramatic Elrond temple-rubbing. Elrond's fluster can be induced remotely or by proxy and does not require Elrond to be present when Thranduil does his thang. See also "FLAST", "FEASTING"
  • FEASTING: Shorthand for Flustered Elrond AND Sassy Thranduil Including Not-impressed Galadriel. Extension of FEAST, which includes Galadriel, also in disapproval mode, i.e. Elrond's fluster conditions in FEAST apply here for both Elrond and Galadriel
  • FLAST: Shorthand for Flustered Leggy AND Sassy Thranduil. In honour of the worship for badass (maybe a smidgeon of oblivious in there somewhere) Thranduil and his actions/non-actions resulting in Legolas getting into a flap. Requires Legolas to be present when Thranduil does his thang. See also "FEAST"
  • GotG: Guardians of the Galaxy. That movie in August 2014 with LP in it
  • HCF: Halt and Catch Fire. LP's 2014 TV series.
  • Hair of Thranduil (aka HoT) Appreciation. Appreciation for Thranduil's gloriously silken beautiful platinum blond locks.

  • LP: Lee Pace
  • Maximum Fabulosity Exposure (aka MFE): Thranduil's complete magnificence doing anything. Inspired by his awesome cool when riding Bubba the War-Elk. See also "Bubba"
  • Ninja-Hugger: Specifically LP dispensing hugs. Not that he hugs ninjas, but because he's sneaky like a ninja when he hugs people in the TH Vlogs and appendices and it takes everyone forever to realize it was even him, usually because he's back to camera when he bounces into frame. Will the sneaky hugging never end? We hope not! See also "BTS Easter Egg Find", "Unexpected Flash of Elf"
  • Oropher: Father of Thranduil
  • Orry/Oro: affectionate diminutive of Oropher
  • PD: Pushing Daisies. LP's 2007/2008 TV series

  • Silent Thread Visitor (aka STV): Self-explanatory, also known as Silent Thread Reader. STVs, Thranduil has a question for you. What say you? Smile
  • T&T: The Thranduil and Thorin confrontation scene in DOS. Generally ranked top favourite of Thranduil Thralls
  • TA: Thranduil Appreciation. All-round Heart for the Elvenking and his onscreen avatar (and by extension teh actor. See also LP).

  • That disagreeable (among other things) Dwarf: See "T&T"
  • Theory of Bling: Overarching term for theories and speculation on the backstories of Thranduil's rings. Popular discussion circa TAIII/TAIV, but still pops up occasionally.

  • Thrandfully: The right manner on how to express your thankfulness to all Thranduil-related and non-related subjects
  • Thranduil Thralls: The afflicted. Fangirls, and boys, whose allegiance are pledged to the Elvenking. Also known as the hopelessly enthralled to his ELVEN MAGNIFICENCE. Perturbing to some, Thralldom may not be exclusive. Credit goes to Eowyn of Penns Woods for the "official" Thranduil Thrall moniker. See also "Equal Opportunistic Thrall"
  • Threadlock: The inevitable fate of all TA threads exceeding 200 replies, aka mundane Chore of Mod. See also "Thread tipping"
  • Thread tipping: Post(s) that sends the current TA thread over the 200 replies threshold See also "Threadlock".
    (See the "AVOIDING GENERIC POST-DEATH" and "AVOIDING POST- DEATH FROM THREADLOCK" sections in this README FOR ALL TA Posters).
  • TW: Thrall Wars. An ongoing(?) bit of silliness in the Fan Art board ribbing everything in and about the Thralldoms of Thranduil and that disagreeable (among other things) Dwarf (see "T&T"). Here be the headtrickle of this bright little snarklestream to nowhere
  • Unexpected Flash of Elf (aka UFE): Those moments in the TH BTS, Vlogs when Thranduil/LP flashes by. See also "BTS Easter Egg Find", "Ninja-Hugger"
  • Woodland Weekend (aka WW): Occasional mega URL laden post for Pretty! of Thranduil, and LP. May also include goodness for Legolas, *cough*That disagreeable (among other things) Dwarf*cough* and some others. Selective indiscrimination is key. See also "Pretty!", "High Thud Risk"

    Keeping track of the appreciation
    Caught off-guard at how much you've missed? 1 simple click will ensure you won't miss another update again. Put this thread on watch! Locate the "Watch thread" button to the top and right of this post (button 3 of the 5 threads buttons you see) and click it.

    Also, if you click on the "creation" bit in the "Age" column (last one) when you view a forum, it changes to "activity", and you get a list of threads which has been recently posted to, instead of when they were started. It's a much easier way to find the current TA thread since someone will probably post in it, and it usually appears on page 1 of the activity view. Certainly beats going back through the board to look for it.

    In Reply To
    You're right! It's too bad I haven't got any talent or a decent amount of imagination to write anything fanfic related. Though I have read some nice stories concerning Leggy during his Ithilien phase so luckily there are very talented writers out there who had the same idea.

    Leggy's fandom is mighty, never underestimate fangurlsAngelic

         Trailer Anticipation (Continued from TAXVIII)

    (started here in TAXVIII)


    @ Eruvandi:
    We wants the trailer, preciousss.


    In Reply To
    Slightly annoying, but I wouldn't put it past them either. I wouldn't even be surprised if they release it on the 31st. Unimpressed As long as Thranduil is included (preferably we'll get to hear him say a line or two) I guess I'm willing to forgive them for the wait.Wink

    It better be as coveted!Frown



    In Reply To
    Side question: Do you think they'll use The Last Goodbye as the song for the trailer or do you think they'll go for more instrumental music? I'm thinking it might be a little early for them to let us hear the trailer song, but then again, I See Fire got released on Nov. 5th last year, so maybe not.

    Well, if we go by what's been done for AUJ and DoS, seems like we wouldn't get The Last Goodbye since it's instrumental, but heck, the teaser's got a song accompanying already, so who knows?

    In Reply To
    I certainly hope it appears somewhere. That crown is too good to waste. I prefer it to the twiggy one.

    Am quietly hopeful that we will get Feast of Starlight. As you said, that crown's too good to waste. And if it wasn't in, I'd doubt the visuals will be released, just cos of the trouble of having to deflect questions spawned as a result.

    Re that spoiler, yeah, I saw it. But well, my question is more along the lines of if it's just a flash-by of Thranduil without any lines or will he get to say something?



    In Reply To
    I'm really annoyed they are releasing the download before the DVD/Blurays. I think they should all be released on the same day - for all countries. I bought the bluray of the AUJ EE and it contained a download with it and I believe the EE for DOS will be the same, so I'm not paying for the extra early download - yet I know I won;t have the willpower to ignore the discussions that will inevitably appear before I can see it myself, which is likely to spoil it somewhat - Gah.

    I guess the powers that be are moving us plebians towards virtual media and in not too subtle a way either.FrownFrown

    This image of the white stag, right?
    https://davegolder2005.files.wordpress.com/.../10/october-16-b.jpg

    from: https://davegolder2005.wordpress.com/...desolation-of-smaug/

    Ok this coming from a non-Hobbit reader: what sort of significance does this white stag have? I know it appears in Mirkwood and Thorin tries to shoot it and misses. What relation to Thranduil would you think it has?

    Yup that's the one. As mariel replied

    Quote
    it is meant to be a manifestation of Thranduil, his avatar.


    In the white post I added, there's a link to a post with a viddy of RA talking about it, and he mentions Thorin taking a shot at the white stag, seemingly a symbolic shot at Thranduil.

    From this TORn article on the homepage.

    Quote
    There’s a much longer version of Mirkwood that we shot. There’s a really beautiful sequence where Bombur falls into the stream, the enchanted stream. We have to carry him, and then also Thorin and Bilbo see the white stag, which is a sort of manifestation of the Elf King, kind of projecting himself into the forest, and Thorin kind of symbolically tries to kill the stag with his crossbow. I was really disappointed that that couldn’t be in the film, ’cause I think it’s like a little beacon of the relationship between Thorin and the Elf King.

    So from the released EE scene, we know the first part is in the EE. But I hope the rest plays out as well.

    [book spoiler] this symbolism is entirely a movie-specific device. There's a normal coloured stag that the whole company tried to bring down in the book but only managed to injure, and this is after the white hind that they really didn't hit, but there's no mention of symbolism or manifestation. Though given the sources the writers and LP seemed to have drawn on in creating movie!Thranduil, it makes sense and is super exciting, especially if Thranduil speaks in this scene *I hope!!!*

    From the collection of interviews here (scroll down for LP's)

    Quote
    His inspirations are very, very interesting to me. I thought of Oberon, the Fisher King … How do I begin to describe it? The thing about the Elves, the thing about this Elf, Thranduil, is that he’s not like people. They’re not like people. They don’t understand things like people. They’re more like a blizzard, or a very old tree, or a bear, or a tiger. They’re wild things. ‘He was the King of the Elves on the other side of the Wild,’ that’s what Tolkien wrote. He’s an exquisite thing, but he’s wild and dangerous because of his wildness—not because he’s evil, because he’s wild. That was the thing that I found very, very interesting.



    [book spoiler end]
    Do you think this is an actual shot for

    In Reply To
    Feast of Starlight?
    Or do you think this might be an early concept for the crown we have come to know so well by now

    don't know tbh. There's been a bit of discussion in the post I linked to on this subject as well. But me, I hope it's not an early concept piece. I'd think with the care the production is taking to dress Thranduil for the occasion, and Tauriel's allusion of the Feast's importance, that Thranduil would be wearing a different crown, and this is so Starlight and festive, don't you think? *fingers crossed*

And let it be the trailer when Men, Elves and disagreeable Dwarves draw swords together, and wait on Eagles and Bearie allies to save the evening. Fell deeds awake.

         Thanks stn5!

    I was just about to post about that, but I see you've beaten me to it!Wink

    My thoughts after watching it:

    Looks like it's a clip from the Appendices. When it show's PJ talking about it, he says, "The way that the introduction to the Woodland realm took place and it's what we filmed, is that they're led in as prisoners before Thranduil. We spent quite a lot of time shooting it, I've gotta say, and everyone was great, but it was a scene that was really just unnecessary. They've been captured out in the forest, which was quite an elaborate sequence unto itself, and you really just want them to be thrown in the cells."

    *gasp*Shocked Shame on you PJ! Scenes with Thranduil's sass in them are NEVER unnecessary and I most certainly do NOT just want the dwarves to go ahead and be chucked in their cells!

    Honestly, the fact that they're showing so much of the scene in the Appendices with just the green screen background has me a little worried. I HOPE it just means that PJ's explaining why certain scenes were left out of the theatrical but reinstated in the EE, but there's a part of me that wonders if it's not getting reinstated at all, and that's why they're showing so much of it in that state.Unsure
    I want to see the sass in it's full glory!

    P.S. Also, it almost sounded like PJ said "Thandruil" instead of Thranduil.Tongue

    Can’t believe it. O.O Please, say its just a bad joke. Could somebody please say its just a bad joke? I swear it, I will not buy the movie, if that’s really true.

    3. I haven't seen more Thranduil sadly. But I have skimmed through so I could have missed it but I doubt it. I skimmed quite delicately!

    7. The white stag scene is brief yet great. It's brief though and I don't really get the hype about it. There's only the Thranduil musical theme that gives it any depth otherwise a general viewer would dismiss it as just another weird hallucination. Not exactly memorable in terms of the whole movie but its well done and excellently shot and rendered.

    It's disappointing, sure, but not surprising. Comparing book to movie, his number of scenes were already about par for the course, IMO. I'm not sure what else they could have added (not counting the one dwarf scene). Also, there's still that least one little green-screen clip we had seen of Thranduil and Leggy talking in elvish that IMO looked brief enough that Annatar could have missed it by skimming.

    Re the white stag scene: Even thought it doesn't sound long, it does sound like Annatar still thought it was well done, so that's good. I'll still be buying the EE despite lack of Thrandy.Unsure

    Yeah hopefully she has missed that scene. I would really like to see a little more Thranduil-Legolas interaction and I was kinda expecting to at least see that scene in the EE.

    Eruvandi is right about the number of scenes compared to the book being about right. It's knowing certain scenes were filmed that were raising our hopes. Just hope we see them all in the extras, albeit with green screen backgrounds - and then look forward to BotFA

         Additional book spoilers

    Re the discussion on the symbolism of the white stag

    Quote
    [book spoiler] this symbolism is entirely a movie-specific device. There's a normal coloured stag that the whole company tried to bring down in the book but only managed to injure, and this is after the white hind that they really didn't hit, but there's no mention of symbolism or manifestation. Though given the sources the writers and LP seemed to have drawn on in creating movie!Thranduil, it makes sense and is super exciting, especially if Thranduil speaks in this scene *I hope!!!*

    Lurker and mariel are absolutely right about the stag in the movie being a projection or "avatar" of Thranduil and that the book stag (referred to there as a "hart") wasn't white and didn't have such symbolism attached to it. Also, Thorin was successfully able to shoot that stag and it died. I just thought I'd add that there was, however, a white mama deer and fawns that appeared directly after the dwarves pulled a sleeping Bombur out of the river and could hear an elven hunting party in the distance. Exact quote from the book is in bold:

    "There they sat for a long while and did not dare to make a move. Bombur slept on with a sile on his fat face, as if he no longer cared for all the troubles that vexed him. Suddenly on the path ahead appeared some white deer, a hind and fawns as snowy white as the hart had been dark. They glimmered in the shadows. Before Rhorin could cry out three of the dwarves had leaped to their feet and loosed off arrows from their bows. None seemed to find their mark. The deer turned and vanished in the trees as silently as they had come, and in vain the dwarves shot their arrows after them."


    The Hobbit book itself doesn't tell us the significance of white deer, but Tolkien had them appear for a reason. As it says on the short page about the white deer on the Tolkien Gateway website,


    Quote
    "Douglas A. Anderson has noted that the appearance of white deer in The Hobbit forebodes the approach by Bilbo and company to the Wood-elven area of Mirkwood, as "n Celtic tradition, encounters with white animals (especially white deer) usually prefigure an encounter with beings from the Otherworld (Faërie)".[3]


    So knowing that, the symbolism between the white stag in the movie and the white deer in the book is actually sort of similar. The white deer weren't an avatar for Thranduil, but they still indicated that the dwarves are officially entering Thranduil's realm, just as the white stag does.

         Loving the bling


    In Reply To


    I have to agree with phij2 (welcome welcome SmileSmile) Thranduil is killing it with his bling. I especially like the wood/branch-like rings on him Heart

    And re the pic with his silver crown, I'm not sure I'm a big fan of the top of the crown. To me it looks a bit too much like a deer's antlers. I like it better when the crop is cutting it off Tongue

         LOL re stumbling across Thranduil


    In Reply To
    Is that what we're calling it? Does sound classier than 'tackling', I must admit. ;)


    Angelic

    Tackling the Woodland King would be more like it I'll admit. Or at least try to tackle him (probably die trying cause the King would not be amused I image Evil)

         Re Thranduil's height


    In Reply To
    Looks like Thranduil's staff is approximately three inches taller than me and LP himself is nine inches taller! If I'm picturing it correctly, the top of my head *might* come up to that lovely brooch he wears on his collar, or thereabouts. Duuuuuude.Shocked

    I'm sure he'd pull it off (with all the effects and background it's obviously lacking) but it looks very "Emperor's New Clothes" with the green screen (and the guy with the sock on his head down front Tongue). And this had to be from the Feast of Starlight. I really wanted to see that. Unsure

    Definitely! And it's more than I can hope for. Heels kill my feet so I don't wear them a lot. I think if I tried to stumble across Thranduil in them, I'd just end up in a sad little fatally thudded tangle as Thranduil fleets by in his elegant glory.

    A black tunic? Haven't seen it before?? Looks SO good *THUD* Maybe it's a sneak peak on one of his BOFA outfits? Even Peter can't stop touching LP LOL

    Isn't that his "undertunic" he wears with his red cloakHeart in the orc interrogation and his armourHeart as well? Also, looks like the one he was wearing in that ethereal shot of him in that BTS in his tent Tinne shared a few threads back.

    I'm sure he'd pull it off (with all the effects and background it's obviously lacking) but it looks very "Emperor's New Clothes" with the green screen (and the guy with the sock on his head down front Tongue). And this had to be from the Feast of Starlight. I really wanted to see that. Unsure

    I got that too, but dang if he doesn't look dashing in whiteHeart I want Feast of Starlight too! But you know, I'm thinking that just looks a bit too aggressive for the Feast. Would this maybe his old armour? Like for a certain SA war?



    In Reply To
    That's adorable! They just can't keep their hands off him.

    *snigger* he looks so dashing though. He just looks good whatever they put him in, period!

    I'm not kidding. It will destroy your perfect headcanon of Thranduil the unparalleled














    Impending image of perfection implosion warning...











    Still time to get out...











    Really... last warning. You're imperiling the immaculate perfection of Thranduil's unsmiling beauty... and that's putting it waaaaay too mildly.















    I'm not kidding... you will never be rid of the trauma...













    ok... you have been warned.








    Taking the screencap well? Think thrice, thrice and thrice over before you hit the GIF clicky

         Resources: One-stop tumblr for all your DOS EE GIF/Image fix, FB and a chinese site

    This is like a mini-motherlode, in a way. Still getting new stuff like a while ago. So you might want to check obsessively until you get your hands on your own copySmile
    http://dinnydinnydinny.tumblr.com/
    (But enter at your risk. That BTS GIF that will destroy all elegance of Thranduil in your mind is somewhere on the site)

    Also, the LeePaceFan FB has an album of Pretty! here.

    All right, this one bears a little explaining as it is a Chinese LP fan aggregator site apparently:
    http://weibo.com/mrleepace

    If you can access it:
    • Scroll down a bit til you see the Thranduil images.
    • They are all thumbnails but if you click on it, it should expand.
    • You can proceed to right-click and save. (There are larger versions available, but only to signed-up users so that's out unless you can read ChineseEvil It's still worth looking in if you can, imo, because there's some Pretty! there I've not seen on tumblr)

    like this one screenie that I am really taken withHeart

         Exactly. And I wonder... [potential spoiler]

    if it's cos Leggy failed to return after the 2 days are up, and Thranduil decides to go fetch him back that the Mirkwood army sallied forth. Though with his tough-commander stance ("You have 2 days"), I wonder if Thranduil would allow himself to show his concerned parent side?

    ... wait! We got subs on this... they be speaking Elvish???HeartHeartHeart *glee*

    This scene...it that fear/concern I see in Thranduil face...

    Poor job PJ. this scene should be in the EE. Now we don't even have any scene of the suppost ti be 'father-son' relationship for Thranduil-Legolas. I really need to hear Legolas said 'ada' & 'Thranduil 'ion-nin'......FrownFrownFrown

         I would imagine that that is the look...

    on Thranduil's face as he watches Legolas leaving. He seemed dispassionate enough when giving his son the ultimatum.

    You are right, this so needed to be in... I am really getting disappointed about the non-delivery of the father-and-son theme that the actors have spoken so much about. That is one of the great themes that should be in full-on display and threading through this trilogy.Frown

         Woodland Ring


    Quote
    And was that a new ring we've not seen before on his left hand? Or is that just the Woodland Ring at an unfamiliar angle?

    It's out of focus but I'm pretty sure it's the Woodland Ring. Looks like whomever that is in the background is holding up his brooch too. This must have been a bling photo op or something.Smile

    Y'know, ever since we started talking about Thrandy's rings, I seem to have a growing fascination with rings in general. I rarely wear them myself, but when I see other people, especially men wearing them, and it's not just a wedding ring, I find myself wondering why they're wearing them, where they came from and if they have any special meaning to the wearer. Even with the LOTR and Hobbit movies, I've started being more aware of any rings the characters are wearing and wondering what the significance is. I've even started thinking about how some of the characters in the fantasy story I'm writing might wear rings and what they might mean. I think I'm obsessed.CrazyTongue

         short written summary of video

    Ok, so in light of what BlackFox has said about possible copyright issues, I've written down a brief summary of what was in that 29 minute video in case the all-powerful Modar decide to edit the link out.

    Turns out the video was not all about Thranduil. It had quite a bit about the elves of Mirkwood in general too. Picking up from my post titled "10 minutes in":

    @13 minutes:
    Segment about Tauriel and EL learning to twirl her daggers with both hands

    @17 minutes:
    PJ, John Howe, Alan Lee talking about the unused scene where Thranduil gives Legolas permission to go find Tauriel. They were supposed to be in this part of the palace where you could see the Lonely Mountain in the distance and the dialog was as follows: (In Elvish) Legolas: "I can bring her back." Thranduil: "You have two days." (In English) Legolas: "Two days? The last moon of autumn and the first sun of winter shall appear in the sky together. Thranduil with a look of realization on his face: "And the bells shall ring in gladness at the mountain king's return. But all will fail in sadness and the lake will shine and burn."

    Sounds like it could have been an interesting scene where Thranduil and Legolas finally realize what the dwarves were trying to do, but given the dialog I can see why they left it out.

    @19 minutes:
    Thranduil's cellars.

    @21 minutes:
    Dwarves in the barrels about to be dumped into the river each get to take a turn recording their *cough* unique screams, Lol!

    @23 minutes:
    The Dwarves are locked up in Thranduil's dungeons and get to take turns filming how they think their character reacts to being locked up. Dwalin freaks out and tries to break the door down, Bombur *gasp* stops eating, and Dori *snert* sings with an opera voice.Tongue

    @28 minutes:
    Some talk about Tauriel and Kili's scene where they talk to each other about starlight and fire moons.



    And finally, possibly my favorite part of the whole video next to the Thrandy stuff

    @29 minutes:
    Leggy in a party hat!Laugh

    Put the wine glass down slowly, Leggy.Tongue


    "Just thought you might want to come to the party!"


    Giving Kili guff for giving him guff and stealing his girl.Wink


    Love that smile!Laugh

    Oh my I've been away for a day and look at all the new Pretty! being posted by you lovely Thralls. I don't even know where to look right now, it's got me baffled and I'm not coping well (this might also have something to do with the fact there's no new Thranduil scenes included in DOS EE and I'm still in shock). I'm starting to misread and misinterpret posts in the most exotic ways like this picture posted by Lurker concerning the sword sheath thingy.

    I was like Lurker you cannot post a closeup of that, and here I was thinking I was the one with TORn guidelines against explicit content posting problems. Then I started to actually read what that post was about and it all made sense to me Tongue
    So at the moment I'm question my sanity somewhat and I don't even know where I should start with my replies. Oh wait, I do!

    Eruvandi!! Could you please please please tell me where is this magical link to the magnificence that is Thranduil for a whole 29 minutes??? PM me, fb, mail, twitter app it. I need to know! Yes yes need to know precioussssssssssssssssss.

    I'm so excited for all this new footage I cannot wait any longer. And obviously my sanity has ben affected for I no longer have the patience nor endurance to start googling and actually looking things up for myself. I'm just so confused right now Crazy Evil

    OK I'll try to relax now.... Angelic

         Thanks for that lovely white stag info

    Thanks for taking the time to explain the essence and meaning of the white stag in relation to Thranduil, Mirkwood and the Dwarves. Perhaps the inclusion of that scene in DOS EE could bd seen as new Thranduil footage, sort of. I know I'm streching it Evil

    This: "n Celtic tradition, encounters with white animals (especially white deer) usually prefigure an encounter with beings from the Otherworld (Faërie)".

    What I would do to be able to walk around through Mirkwood. Wouldn't even mind being captured and taken before The King, for obviously that would be my sole purpose in the first place.

    And he pronounces Smaug differently as well, in a typical English/American kind of way. The 'au' in Smaug sounding more like an 'ô'. Same happend when some of the actors had to pronounce Saruman and it sounded all wrong or when the actor playing Theoden said 'Rohčn' instead of 'Rohan'. I was like dude it's your own freakin country. Learn to say it right Tongue

    I remember Chrisopher Lee being very vigilant about it, wanting the pronounciation to be the exact way Tolkien had meant it. It makes sense for native EN speakers to get it wrong the first time around because they use a different intonation than the European languages Tolkien had based on his LotR languages. I'm always completely put off when I hear 'mistakes' like that. But for what it's worth PJ, Thranduil isn't the easiest name to pronounce for me either so you are forgiven. However you are certainly NOT forgiven for excluding the Thranduil hotness from DOS EE. And I'm going to remind you about it for a veeeeeeery long time.

         Nah I'm not feeling it

    Though I'm absolutely sure LP could have pulled it off brilliantly. And I do love the color on him. Then again Thranduil looks good in any color Heart
    I might have to witness the entire outfit in full motion to be able to judge it accordingly. But as for now, I'm not overly depressed them not including this footage in DOS EE. As for not inlcuding anything else concerning Thranduil/Legolas I'm obviously still very Mad

    And I think you're right about that being Bubba the Moose or should I just call him Moose since he has not been altered to his Elk-like form yet? Tongue

    Who knows, this could be his 'bye bye Thorin' outfit? Hmm but then again he wouldn't wear that strange antler looking crown now would he?

    Hey look at that my textbox is doing weird things without my permission again Crazy such as altering my font size. Really need to start posting in that thread you linked earlier Lurker, where they might be able to fix this problem. I always have had these problems with TORn btw, it's just that normally I change everything back to normal before hitting post reply. But like I said I'm lazy today and confused by all the Thranduil Pretty still so I'm not gonna Tongue

         The bling


    Quote
    Y'know, ever since we started talking about Thrandy's rings, I seem to have a growing fascination with rings in general. I rarely wear them myself, but when I see other people, especially men wearing them, and it's not just a wedding ring, I find myself wondering why they're wearing them, where they came from and if they have any special meaning to the wearer. Even with the LOTR and Hobbit movies, I've started being more aware of any rings the characters are wearing and wondering what the significance is. I've even started thinking about how some of the characters in the fantasy story I'm writing might wear rings and what they might mean. I think I'm obsessed.CrazyTongue

         I still wish they'd included the completed scene...

    It could have been a genuine (for lack of a better word) deleted scene (one not intended to be a canon part of the film - though Jackson does seem inclined to only show scenes he wanted to include as part of the story. I mean, it does make sense that Thranduil would know that little rhyme, but I suppose Jackson wanted Bard to reveal it? Or, perhaps he's come up with some other explanation for Legolas going after Tauriel that we'll see in BOFA?)

    Feeling a bit more disgruntled at the lack, now. (And more irritated that the digital release came well before the hard copy. /curmudgeon )

    I've already said how irritated I am about the download being released ahead of the DVD. Cynical money making ploy by WB. I already weakened and bought the TE and have the EE bluray on order, but I am NOT paying for this movie 3 times, especially as now I'm rather disheartened by what has been filmed but not included - and is not even a fully developed scene in the deleted scenes part of the extras.

Maybe PJ explains some of the bits that have us feeling a bit lost? (Like: Did Legolas just go AWOL, or what?

    On this thread. Not anything revelational.


    Really meh overall, imo. And why is Bard looming larger than the Elves? *sense of foreboding just looking at DoS EE* ... But ThranduilHeart looks AWESOME as always! Comforting thought is that the Thranduil image is not smaller than Tauriel or Legolas, and he seems to be a bit more to the front than they both are.

         Question to Thrallls about clicky images (and a slight OT)

    Just dawned on me to ask: Do you know, at least for my clickies, when on the source, if you open images on a new winder/tab, if you see a small magnifying glass with a little "+" sign in it's lens, you will get a larger-res version when you click on the image? ... which I presume you'd prefer whenever available. Aside from crediting originators and acknowledging their work, that's why I go to the trouble of making the source linkies.

    Illustration tumblr is not that great an example since it doesn't seem to matter if you save the image directly, but I'm too lazy to go searching for a scenario appropriate page... like pinterest:
    1. On image source page.

    2. Right-click on image and select "Open Link in New Tab" or "View Image" if it's not available

    3. Hover mouse over new tab/window and click on image when the magnifying glass icon appears. Viola!

    4. Save as per usual process.Smile

    Hope this makes sense. Now to add more Pretty! to the thread EvilAngelicHeart


    Now to the OT: Did you see a thread about unused/deleted scenes of Thranduil? I thought I saw one before I logged off yesterday. Wanted to look in today and can't find it anymore. Am I hallucinating? (if i am, I guess my no-new-Thranduil-scenes trauma is more severe than I'd imagine Evil )

         Good the opinion is not just confined to Thralls



    In Reply To
    Re everyone's feelings about no more Thranduil scenes in the EE: Wow, it seems like this negative reaction is pretty wide-spread all across the fandom! Hopefully PJ and co will take note and not make the same mistake with the BotFA EE!Mad

    Somehow, this feels vindicating. I am an unabashed thrall of Thranduil's for sure. No one can accuse me of innocence in this regardAngelic but hey, doesn't mean I don't have any awareness as a book-reader or a movie-goer. Just stripping away my Thranduil thralldom (sounds wrong but Tongue ), I say with confidence PJ's decisions seems unfathomable, looking at those two scenes vs what we seemed to have gotten. It's not just thralls saying it on TORn at least. I've seen posts where the guys think so too. Surely not all are rabid Thranduil fanciers?

    But yes, good to know elsewhere the sentiments are similar.EvilMadFrown

         Yeah... got to wonder though...

    are we getting so much bts Thranduil goodies because this is PJ's way of trying to make up for no new Thranduil in the movie?? Or is it par for course? I can't tell Evil but either way... no deal, PJ! You're still not absolved regardless!Frown

         Pronunciation


    In Reply To
    And he pronounces Smaug differently as well, in a typical English/American kind of way. The 'au' in Smaug sounding more like an 'ô'. Same happend when some of the actors had to pronounce Saruman and it sounded all wrong or when the actor playing Theoden said 'Rohčn' instead of 'Rohan'. I was like dude it's your own freakin country. Learn to say it right Tongue

    I remember Chrisopher Lee being very vigilant about it, wanting the pronounciation to be the exact way Tolkien had meant it. It makes sense for native EN speakers to get it wrong the first time around because they use a different intonation than the European languages Tolkien had based on his LotR languages. I'm always completely put off when I hear 'mistakes' like that. But for what it's worth PJ, Thranduil isn't the easiest name to pronounce for me either so you are forgiven. However you are certainly NOT forgiven for excluding the Thranduil hotness from DOS EE. And I'm going to remind you about it for a veeeeeeery long time.

    Wow... fascinating! Never realise there's such a difference between English and continental European speak. Too bad, for us here, the proper pronunciation guide is not used when we're taughtFrown which is why English, and everything else can really sound really mangled at times. I guess I'm lucky I have a fairly good ear though I botch stuff sometimes too.

    Hey look at that my textbox is doing weird things without my permission again Crazy such as altering my font size. Really need to start posting in that thread you linked earlier Lurker, where they might be able to fix this problem. I always have had these problems with TORn btw, it's just that normally I change everything back to normal before hitting post reply. But like I said I'm lazy today and confused by all the Thranduil Pretty still so I'm not gonna Tongue

    hmmm... have you checked your profile settings? though, yes if you're on the advanced editor mode. It does take on the fomatting applied through your word processor if you're doing a copy and paste?

         You know... I just don't understand these decisions

    except if I take the view that the writers wanted to see THEIR "creative" decisions take a bigger share of screentime than focusing on doing a great adaptation, which was a lot less evident in LotR I feel. I don't need a paragraph-by paragraph re-enactment, but just reading the spoilers about the extended scenes, I'm not seeing anything that ADDs to the story as told by the prof, but rather padding the story up with the writers' inventions, and the not-so-good ones at that.Frown I can live with them wanting to make a bigger mark with their ideas - and they did have some great ones, but when it seems the decision is really doing not much but be detrimental rather then enhance the story, BLEH! And I'm not talking just about not having either of the great deleted Thranduil scenes we've seen. *sigh*

         And all the more disgruntling

    [Rant on]
    for that
    • THIS was a scene that's a sudden addition they worked out on the fly
    • Alan Lee quick-sketching the background impromptu for the actors and director to have something to work off on, and them showing it just makes me want to see the realised version even more... imagine...

    (GIFs of the scene)
    • another location in the Halls... and look at Erebor in the distance! I can just imagine it, Thranduil making time everyday for the longest time to just stand there and stare at it, thinking about the White-Gems.
    • It's a Thranduil and Leggy moment. And they both speak Elvish!
    • Thranduil displaying a different, softer, emotion, that's not been seen yet. He's so sad and solemn... must be the sight of Erebor and the thought of those Gems.
    • Legolas gets character layering. He's not the jealous little princeling hanging on to Tauriel. This puts a different spin to their relationship, which would have been great to see. Also, he's a trusted confidante of Thranduil here. And that's as it should, for beings who live so long. Legolas' knowledge he displays in LotR makes sense with this... he didn't just sleep on an encyclopedia of ME one night and wake up in time to fulfil his destiny as the Oracle of the (partial)Fellowship.
    • Thranduil's awesome intellect and intuiting ability on display. "You have two days" he say so simply. Without ado or drama, but it's so full of PORTENT. And shows, imo, he cares very much for Tauriel in his own way, being willing to let Legolas even try. And even Legolas catching on is another side to him that's been missing.
    • I can understand that PJ took it out to preserve the impact of Bard's realisation. But why should it take away from the storyflow if it's worked in well? The crew has shown they're very capable of making things work if they wanted to. For example, why couldn't the scene of Bard making the discovery be interwoven with a small scene of Tauriel and Legolas en-route to Lake-town where Tauriel asks Legolas the circumstances of him getting the King's leave to come after her. He can tell her the deadline and do reminiscence of this exact scene, and as Thranduil recites the rhyme, the scene blends and morphs into Bard doing his thing. It's been done in the films before. For all the visual callbacks and resonances PJ has forced into TH, this would be the one call-back to all those LotR scenes of blending voices, seemingly disjointed scenes bleeding into one another that I would have loved and WANT TO SEE.
    [Rant off]

    Oh my I've been away for a day and look at all the new Pretty! being posted by you lovely Thralls. I don't even know where to look right now, it's got me baffled and I'm not coping well (this might also have something to do with the fact there's no new Thranduil scenes included in DOS EE and I'm still in shock). I'm starting to misread and misinterpret posts in the most exotic ways like this picture posted by Lurker concerning the sword sheath thingy.

         Simple!

    Just take the link in the URL window of the image or the source page of the image (eg tumblr post page): ie right-click on the URL, then do the usual to "attach" it to your TORn uploaded image (I'm assuming that's what you do). So you don't have to go through an external image hosting source at all. Hotlinking is when you directly paste the URL of the source image as an image on a post. By uploading a guideline-appropriate image directly as an attachment and then "attaching" the source URL to it in a post, you're not hotlinking. You remain a guideline-abiding TORn user and the mods won't have occasion to unleash WoM on you.

    Hope that made sense.Smile
