This post contains recommendations of fanfiction that are of a mature nature and may contain explicit slash writing.
There’s shipping, OTPing, slashing and so forth, so be warned, if that’s not your cup of tea, that’s fine by me, I note your objections 😉
As always with regards to comments, keep it clean, don’t be mean!
Ever since I watched The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug I’m fascinated with Thranduil, played by Lee Pace.
The Elven King is the perfect and most worthy adversary for Thorin, the King under the mountain.
I love the scene when Oakenshield and his company are captured and he stands at the foot of a freaky moose-horn throne (they sell those in IKEA BTW, if you’re interested), and Thranduil is giving the pint-sized dwarf a nice pat on the head and trying to strike a bargain to get his hands in the crowned jewels he had long desired (and when I say the crowned jewels I’m being literal, for smut scroll down) .
By the way, I found the object of Thranduil’s fascination a tad confusing: are they shiny like stars or made out of stars, what’s that all about?
Looked like costume jewellery to me…
Anyway, the scene was electric and the sass was flying left and right.
All that’s missing is RuPaul sitting there shouting “Reading is Elementary*” while the two whip their hair back and forth throwing shade*…
* I realised that maybe not all of you have seen RuPaul’s Drag Race and aren’t familiar with drag queen terminology so here it goes:
to read someone means to point out someone’s negative traits, usually in a form of a funny one-liner.
throwing shade is a derivative from reading and means to point out someone’s flaws.
Back to sass and shade, I have to ask:
Anyway, I’m not the only one that’s digging these two (although I may be the only one who insists on waving my hand and snapping my fingers going: Oh no he di int! every time their scene comes up… at least I hope I’m the only one…).
Here are some fanfiction goodies I’ve come up with to quench a Thorin/Thranduil thirst, scratch that Thorinduil/Thradrin itch (does this ship have a name? it should because it’s already sailed…).
I hope you enjoyed the recs and happy Thorinduiling 🙂
