A couple of friendly reminders aka README!!!!!!!!
Thranduil Appreciation Thread Part XXXIV
If you're new, or unsure, about posting, especially contributing Pretty!, please refer to
- the TORn guides on the "Welcome" board, or
- the "IMPORTANT README for TA posters: Information on posting, and adding images" and the little PSA from the mods posts right here on the TA threads for quickie information.
It might just save you from getting zapped by Wrath of Mod.
And now back to your regularly scheduled ThranduilAppreciation
.~.~.~.~.~. .~.~.~.~.~. .~.~.~.~.~.
Woot! 303 posts on TAXXXIII! Give ourselves a pat on the back, fellow Thralls!
Wow! Just wow! The record post-spurt continues to set records. We went so far into town on TAXXXIII we've overshot it and landed squarely on Estrogen Island Highest posts since numero uno, powered by the THUDDERING tendencies of Cassie, Adriana, SunnyD, OTP, VValar, and supported by BlackFox and mariel. Threadtip post honour goes to OTP (perfect blend of EI and Thuddering Thrall there)
We've left the TAXXXIII but something tells me we're careening along in the ultimate cab ride Onwards, and time to get serious. Even the Elvenking's in uniform
Any and all appreciation of Thranduil and everything related to him happens here.
All Thranduil Thralls, and appreciating non-Thralls are welcome.
So feel free to jump in at any time!

Thranduil Appreciation Lexicon aka the little TAspeak garden
BTS Easter Egg Find (aka BEEF): Those moments in the BTS when Thranduil/LP flashes by (see Unexpected Flash of Elf) on screen or some information is found. See also "Ninja-Hugger"
Bubba: Nickname of Thranduil's beloved War-Elk. See also"Maximum Fabulosity Exposure"
Equal Opportunistic Thrall: One who thralls whom her/his infidelity fancies. Shamelessly multi-allegiance by nature. See also "Thranduil Thralls"
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.
High Thud Risk (aka HTR): Alert for Pretty! hoarding thralls, invoked when 'EI' ain't cutting it. See also "Pretty!"
LA/LAEM: The Last Alliance of Elves and Men, not the city in the StatesLee Pace: Thranduil
Leggy: affectionate diminutive of Legolas
Legolas: Son of Thranduil, aka surfer Elf of LotR
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 Pretty!: Surely self-explanatory? See also "Woodland Weekend", "High Thud Risk"Silent Thread Visitor (aka STV): Self-explanatory, also known as Silent Thread Reader. STVs, Thranduil has a question for you. What say you?
T&T: The Thranduil and Thorin confrontation scene in DOS. Generally ranked top favourite of Thranduil Thralls
TA: Thranduil Appreciation. All-round for the Elvenking and his onscreen avatar (and by extension teh actor. See also LP). Shockingly, there are TA posts with that literary bent associated with thinking individuals frequenting such an exemplary forum as TORn. Some even hint at functional brain-matter in the poster.
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.
Thranddy: affectionate diminutive of the Elvenking's name (if you don't know who is the Elvenking, google is your mellon) 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).Thud Cushions. Thrall kit staple, and safety precaution for the inevitability of super high thud occurrences. In-thread purveyed most-in-demand item, best paired with HTR alerts.
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.

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.
