     Thranduil Appreciation Thread Part XXXIV

A couple of friendly reminders aka README!!!!!!!!
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 ThranduilHeartAppreciation

.~.~.~.~.~. .~.~.~.~.~. .~.~.~.~.~.


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 IslandShockedLaughAngelicHeart 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 rideHeartCoolAngelic Onwards, and time to get serious. Even the Elvenking's in uniformHeart


Any and all appreciation of HeartThranduil and everything related to him happens here.
All HeartThranduil Thralls, and appreciating non-Thralls are welcome.Smile
So feel free to jump in at any time!

Thranduil Appreciation Lexicon aka the little TAspeak garden Tongue
  • 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 States
  • Lee 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? 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). 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: affectionateHeart 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. 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.

    Just remember, after threadtip, it's bona-fide dangerous living for posting Thralls. The mods have no qualms executing Chore of Mod, anytime.

    Having said that, you've delurked what, a week? Look how much Thrall lifers you've got under the belt already. And on the seventh day, SunnyD got her veteran Thrall tags LaughCoolSmile

    Having said that, you've delurked what, a week?


    Less than that, actually. I delurked at around 10 a.m. on Jan. 2, so it's only been about three and a half days. Cool

    Cassie, didn't you say something in the last thread about being in a house on fire? Let's do this!

         Chamber music

    I can picture Thranduil at the piano, of course. I thought of Thorin on the double bass and perhaps Elrond would play the cello. But those two would forever argue with Thranduil over the selection of the music and the arrangement. So it would only be a matter of time before the elvenking exercised his authority and kicked them out.


    Feren for the viola and Lindir with a violin might work.


    So who would the thralls pick to play the cello and double bass?

    Please call me, Cassie.

    The cool wizard must be in the band. Cool But imagine Thranduil doing a mean guitar solo, whipping and flipping his hair and all. Laugh

    Although this wouldn't quite be 'chamber music' anymore. Tongue

         Greenwood Quintet

    Thranduil at the piano works for me -- those long arms in total command of the keyboard, hair and broad shoulders swaying to the music. HeartHeart But I can also see him on the violin -- which is always first among equals in any string/chamber ensemble -- with those long fingers flying up and down the fingerboard.

    @On_the_partyelk:

    whipping and flipping his hair and all.

    He could also do that on either the piano or the violin, don't you think? Laugh

    So bringing in Legolas (on violin if Thranduil is on piano, cello if Thandy is on the violin), and Gandalf (excellent suggestion, On_the_partyelk, but substituting double bass for drums), and with Feren and Lindir taking up the two remaining instruments, I think we have our Greenwood Quintet!

         You all have been quite active while I was gone

    Yet again have a lot of catching up to do. Bu I'm not complaining Cool

    So I have these two questions for those who have either seen BOFA multiple times and/or have an excellent memory: That moment in the official BOFA trailer where we see Thranduil's army in front of the gates of Erebor shooting their arrows:


    Do we see that moment in the actual movie? I can't seem to remember it but chances are my mind was too preoccupied with the actions of a certain Elven King that I completely missed it. I don't see him riding through his army on this picture either. It seems the Elves are firing their arrows in the general direction of Dain and his army of Dwarves, since the Orc army came from straight behind the Elven army (or so it appeared in the film). Do you think this could perhaps be a cut scene that will be in the EE's? Or did I really miss it and it was already in the theatrical version?

    Another question: when Tauriel is grieving of Kili's body she says to Thranduil: 'They want to burry him' (or something similar), as if it's an outrageous thing to do with the dead. Thranduil replies matter of factly "Yes" as if it IS a normal thing to do (for Dwarves?). What did you think of this exchange? I can imagine it's an absolute common sense for a Dwarf to burry the dead since they're into digging, rocks and caves. But what about the Elves, how did they say goodbye to their loved ones? Is there something in the Tolkien literature that describes their parting ritual?

    It's not to be taken seriously.
    He's right about one thing though. Thranduil doesn't fight any significant orcs.
    Frown I hope we'll get to see more of Thranduil fighting in the EE and that PJ just had to cut his fighting scenes for the TE because they were too violent for a PG-13 movie. Cause he did say that was the reason he had to cut many of the orc killing scenes because they got an R rating.

         Welcome, Adrianna

    Hope you're feeling better.

    I do hope it was not the lack of responses to your posts that gave you the feeling. I'm sure it's nothing personal on the others, including moi. Sometimes we just miss things. Heaven knows I've any number of "ignored" posts since the beginning, particularly ones I thought superbly clever. EvilTongue Please feel better!

    I also have contemplated making a video, but finding a fitting song is not exactly easy. Can't take any rock or pop song for a Thranduil video.

    I can see myself writing an essay about Thranduil and every gorgeous piece of him, incl minimum two chapters dedicated to his smirk! Laugh

         been there done that

    when you are in a fandom where FANS actively try to get a bandmember KICKED out of a band, such silly hate threads are merely making you raise an eyebrow, IF even! So, let them kids play in their one hate thread. We have THIRTY FOUR (going strong to number THIRTY FIVE) appreciation threads, what more can I say? Smile

         Er, I don't think it's meant to be taken that seriously.

    The OP in question, IMO, is actually a very nice guy from what I've seen of him on other parts of the board. Although it might come off the wrong way sometimes, he has a wry sense of humor and I'm 99.9% positive his "anti-Thranduil" posts are intended to be friendly tongue-in-cheek joking. It's just how his sense of humor is and I really don't think he means any harm or offense.Unsure Just my two cents.

    Happy Hobbity New Year! :D

         A little strong, perhaps?

    I'm not one for overstating my opinions (unless it involves purses), but if I were to agree with Bomby in that thread and say how I disliked Pace and the characterisation of Thranduil, then I would vehemently disapprove of being labelled a troll for doing so.

    The thread is hardly designed for haters to hate or trolls to trolololol. It's for people with differing opinions from your own to discuss what they think didn't quite work.

    There's no need for laughing. Opinions are opinions. Smile

         IDK what the thread said

    but when your headline includes the word ANTI you can't expect people to think you're joking, can you?! Not my kind of person to deal with then. just saying.

    Plus: I am VERY protective of Thranduil! TDS, remember. Wink

         Thranduil's Wife

    This was on mind as I was waking up.


    Now there is no mention of her in the books. We know this for sure. So we know that he becomes an isolationist because of seeing his father and comrades being killed, all the wars and the return of Sauron. And I am guessing that yes his wife was probably killed or died because she's not there but do we really know how and when. When they showed him trying to pick up the necklace in AUJ EE; how long ago was that? I mean how long does it take to make a necklace? And then for Legolas to stated that he has no memory and no grave there is nothing, wellUnsure! I was going on the assumption that PJ and PB know what actually happen to her. But in essence they don't. Because PJ created Tauriel to explain parts of his arc when they really don't know. Is there anywhere in the books stating she died in Gundaba? Not from what I'm seeing. The only thing that's there is a necklace that he had made for his wife. I will eventually read the books myself to understand this better. Yes the elves love on a deeper level than humans but I cant' believe that he would not able to love again or go near it if it presents itself.
    So I guess it's our own imagination to wonder what really happen to her and that part of his life since J R R Tolkien is no longer with us to explain this.


    I'm probably making to big of an issue regarding this but it kinda of hit me this morning. They really don't know and this plot line was just added in to fill it out. But don't get me wrong I still enjoyed the movie. As a matter of fact plan on seeing it again today.
