Favorite pairing in LotR?

Recommended Posts

Guest orleans

In general, I love to read about Elves. Pairings with Hobbits or Dwarves are not to my liking.....it's just difficult for me to imagine, for example, a Hobbit paired with a Men and such... wacko.gif

It really depends on how a story is written and how the characters are portrayed, but I like to read about these pairings:

Elrohir/Legolas

Elrohir/Lindir

->I like stories with the twins in general cool.gif

Erestor/Glorfindel (but please no overly shy or strangely behaving Erestor :smile.gif

Erestor/Ereinion

What about you? What pairings do you like?

I don't have a favorite pairing to read but I do enjoy many of Eresse's pairings like:

Elrohir/Legolas

Elladan/OC Legolas Brother

Elladan/Imrahil

Other's I've enjoyed have been:

Glorfindel/Ecthelion

Elrond/Gil-Galad

I've recently been intrigued in writing Thranduil/Elrond (first age) and Thranduil/Rumil (second/third age). Though my personal favorite to write has been my Star Trek/LOTR crossover with Elrond/Jean-Luc Picard

Anything that is elves/dwarves!! I don't know why but I love when a dwarf and an elf are getting it on! Really puts a funny picture in your head ..... I mean dwarves are short, and elves usually tall, and it works out funny and I always get this picture in my head!

I'm odd and prefer my pairings to be odd and unusual!

lol

Thank you. Now, I fear, I will have that picture in my head for the next few hours at least ....

Another pairing I forgot to add: I like to read about Rumil / Lindir as well.

And normally I don't really like Haldir/Legolas, but Laurelin created a wonderful serial about those two wub.gif

I love to read about Elves.  No Men, Dwarves or Hobbits.

I'm glad I'm not the only one smile.gif

I really have no idea why, but somehow I can't stand Elrond. There are no obvious reasons, but perhaps I have just read the wrong stories, I don't know....

Yes that can be an interesting pairing <img src="http://www2.adult-fanfiction.org/forum/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/think.gif"> , but I was only able to find a few stories with them.

There's actually a whole site dedicated to Gil-Galad & Elrond with a number of G/E stories... hasn't been updated in a while, but might have some stuff of interest.

I like any pairing combination of Legolas, Aragorn, Boromir, Faramir, Eomer, Haldir, Celeborn and Glorfindel. I once read a Boromir/Merry/Pippin fic that was actually quite good despite trying to figure out the whole way through the story how exactly they made it work.

Aragorn/Boromir

Aragorn/Elrond

Aragorn/Faramir

Aragorn/Frodo

Aragorn/Boromir's definitley my fave. Aragorn/Frodo's fun as hell to read, but a bit difficult to write, simply because the size is so great. Aragorn: 6'6, Frodo: 3'6. Youch.

Haha.

Depending on how Elrond's written, I like reading about them as well. I've never been a big fan of Aragorn/Legolas, probably because there are so many out there. There are a few gems though, so I'll never not read something due to that pairing.

Ok, enough babbling on my part.

I realize this may be an ‘older’ forum thread, but I’m still new and weaving my way through this site.  I’m loving what I find though!

I don't think I actually had a favorite, I loved all the elves!  I read a lot of different author works that take place in their specific fantasy realms much like Tolkien does with Middle-Earth.

However, once the movies were released I was first infatuated with Legolas.  Then came the Hobbit movies and I absolutely and completely fell in love with Thranduil!  Of the stories I’ve read so far, the pairings I like most are:

Thranduil/Legolas and Glorfindel/Erestor

I think I need to read a few more!

I felt a bit cheated, with the movies, I mean, with the Hobbit at three, then certainly the LoTR could’ve been six, or even nine!  Imagine, the scouring of the shire, a nice little short story by itself, could’ve made it in.

@Desiderius Price  I kind of know what you mean about feeling cheated.  My first introduction to Tolkien was in 1973 as a reading assignment for my literature class.  We were all supposed to read 'The Hobbit' and write a review.  I absolutely loved it!  Unfortunately though after graduation I joined the Army and for a long time, I didn’t really have much time for reading of any kind much less fantasy worlds.  Around the mid 1980’s I joined the Science Fiction Book Club and have built up a rather large collection from different authors.

As far as the movies, for me I think it was like spending years watching old black and white silent movies, then all of the sudden someone hands me this awesome widescreen color version of those old worn out B/W’s!  Yes, there a lot of deviations from the books, but I think they helped add a degree of depth to certain characters, even though I still pick apart the movies.

I’m pretty much into elf slash, and I’ve written my favourites. So those would be (in no particular order):

Sauron/Maglor

Elrond/The Mirkwood Three (and combinations thereof), which is to say Oropher, Thranduil and Legolas

Elrond/Young!Thranduil

Acutally, Elrond/pretty much anyone, including Celebrian

Thranduil/Legolas (with Tafkab)

Erestor/Twins (with Tafkab)

Glorfindel/Erestor (I lost a lot of chapters when I got rid of a duplicate story in the archives, and I never really got over that)

Glorfindel/Gildor (with BronxWench)

Legolas/Gimli

I’m sure there are more. I was starting to enjoy writing little bits of Celeborn/Thranduil and Galion/Legolas when I kind of lost my muse. :( I was also getting to know Curufin/Celegorm, and I’d just begun advancing the S/M into Melkor/Sauron territory.

Maybe it will come back. I hope so. I mean, The Teacher is kind of like my life’s work of the past 10+ years, and I’d like to finish it someday.

I’m patiently waiting for that story. :yes:

In fact, I hope you can find your muse again, so that you can go on writing all those incredible stories you used to write, Pippychick (Some of them with Tafkab / BronxWench)

My favourite pairings:

Erestor/Twins

Sauron/Maglor

Thranduil/Legolas

Elrond/Young!Thranduil

Glorfindel/Erestor

Glorfindel/Gildor

Well, I’ve just come back from holiday, and seen this post. Now I’m all happy, when I was a bit post holiday blue (ish). But! I’ve come back with lots of inspiration, so who knows… maybe I’ll be prodding Bronx soon to carry on our tale at the very least. Writing with her is like a wonderful dream…. Thank you, Joyeuse! :) You are so awesome :wub:

I will admit to loving a bit of twincest (Elladan/Elrohir) and the threesome of Legolas, Elladan, and Elrohir. Positively delicious, those three…:lol:

Galadriel / Shadowfax.

I’ll… I’ll leave now.

lol! If you write that one, I promise to review it. I know your stories, you’re more than capable. Maybe she can mindspeak to the horse or something… that would be fun, especially if Shadowfax was all: “You want to what?! Are you insane?” and then threatens to tell Gandalf or something, and she has to convince him not to... *giggles*

Ok…

*waits to see what happens*

Honestly, it would be hilarious. Please do it!
