One MAGNIFICENT Elvenking, part twenty-three of our Appreciation thread. Thanks to Eowyn of Penwood, yours truly tipped thread XXII. You know the drill, fellow Thralls: let the appreciating continue!HeartWink
(Spoiler avoidance alert: There be spoilers since TAXVII due to the DOS EE, and BotFA media releases. Viewing in threaded mode is a better way to go about it if you're keen to avoid them, as you can check the sub-thread titles before you see anything you might regret... though what's to regret when it comes to Thranduil Pretty!, eh?)

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).
  • 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.

    I'm sure that if Thrandy had lowered himself to accompany this motley group of men, dwarves and hobbits, he would have instantly taken charge, and then ridden the moose while making everyone else walk. Smile

         TAXXIII!!! Wheeee! + General post responses [In reply to]  

     Wow, 23! At this rate, I wonder if we can make it to 30 by the time the movie comes out?Smile

    In celebration of the beginning of this thread, one of my favorite pics of Thrandy:


    General Responses to TAXXII:

    Lurker’s “Another one. FLAST! [GAH! Trailer wait]
    Haha! xD Those were LOL funny! I read them to my mom too and the think the one about Leggy getting his own hair straightener was her favorite!


    Lurker’s “Perfect!”
    That *is* perfect! I love how his expression fits the words so well! And thank goodness that he did get several frames and some lines in the trailer! Heart

    VValar’s “Agreed!”
    That gif is kind of funny and sad at the same time, but oh so true. Evil


    Kerewyn’s “Loki as Noldor Elf images”
    Re your question, “Do you think he could actually be Feanor?”: I haven’t seen a lot of Tom Hiddleston’s work, but from what I’ve seen, yes, I can totally picture him as Feanor! Cool



    Lurker’s “I hope so too”
    Re Bubba looking a tad short: Mmmmm….Uuuuuhhhh…*tilts head this way and that* *squints*…I don’t think so. I just compared Bubba in the trailer with Bubba in the AUJ Prologue and when Thranduil turns him around and has his army walk away, it looks like the Elf soldiers come up to the same place on Bubba there as they do in the trailer. I think he may just *seem* short because he’s surrounded by elves in the trailer as opposed to being in front of them all in the prologue. Also, the camera is at a higher angle in the trailer than in the prologue so that may be contributing to him looking short.
    The biggest difference I notice between prologue Bubba and trailer Bubba is that trailer Bubba, IMO, looks older and seems to have some scars on his velvety nose, which I guess is a natural side effect of being a war-elk. Unsure


    Re Kerewyn’s thought that Thranduil is demoting Tauriel being more palatable than them opposing each other.
    I’m with Lurker in that I can live with the demotion. I can also live with the whole slicing her bow in half just being misleading and ending up barely being a “thing” at all…
    Is it December yet?Unsure


    Lurker’s “Think you’re on to something, Tinne”
    *looks at pic* *can’t decide if it’s Tauriel’s or Leggy’s boots, but pretty sure it’s not a dwarf*
    GAAAAAAH!!!!
    And I repeat…Is it December yet?! CrazyShockedPirate


    Re the Middle-earth Periodic Table
    Ha! I like that much better than the real thing!Wink

         LOL is Thranduil implying Glorfindel should fill up his place? [In reply to]  

    Heh I like the little strip-version of Leggy vs Thranduil during the council of Elrond, did you do it yourself?

    Oh I was meaning to ask, since it has been way too long since I read LOTR and I thought some of you might know this: Did Thranduill (or Legolas for that matter) knew the council was being held at the time he sent his son to Rivendell? Or was it more like a 'surprise, council time!' moment?

    Which is why Aragorn in particular would be breathing a sigh of relief that Thranduil opts out. I updated the strip incorporating that ... here

    The latter. The Council was called because everyone happened to be there and Elrond thought it good to get everyone on the same page as really, except for Gandalf, everyone was there for other reasons. Legolas was there to report Gollum's escape, Boromir to get clarity on Faramir's dream about Halfings, the Dwarves because of Sauron's emissary.

    A small one, if anyone's interested, of the pre-BotFA frenzy days, and there's probably some repeats.

         *claps hands with delight* [In reply to]  

    Oh I HeartHeart the OP! I hope all you STVs realise it's for you too.

    Actually when I saw the thread tip, I got all breathless and all "could I... should I... start a thread?!" But I had no good images or ideas prepared, and just half an hour before I had to leave (a friend was cooking me dinner.) Just as well really, because it would have been nowhere as good.

    Hm, if I can download that clip as an mp3, I can transfer it easily and make it my ringtone. But dare I? What a hoot that would be... especially when my phone is lying on my desk at work. "You started this... you will forgive me if I finish it." It will give me SO much delight - I;ll have to keep calling myself from the landline.

    (I hope people won't take it literally and hand me their work to finish.)

    I haven't had a chance to go through them all yet, but on first viewing - very unflattering lighting in the "rug with deer" pic don't you think?
