I just found this on Evangeline’s facebook page. And I am already feeling that this chat will have lots of hate. poor Evangeline I’m really feeling bad for her.
Really people? Do you really have to be douche bags like that publicly on her Facebook page? She didn’t even want the love triangle. Oh well, more Evie for the rest of us.
And if you are going to say that Arwen dragged down the 1st trilogy you need to get your priorities checked dude, and I cannot take anything you say seriously.
If stupidity could be turned into electricity the world wouldn’t have an energy problem any longer. The amount of stupidity in Evies Facebook page astounds me.
I’m not defending the idiots because they really are being assholes, but Arwen is actually in Lord of the Rings. They made get massively more important, but her whole love story with Aragorn is in the appendices. It’s not exactly the same…
However I really do feel like all love stories in LOTR/Hobbit movies are kinda jammed in awkwardly. Like they are something to keep the girls interested (like we wouldn’t be lol). I would have liked Tauriel so much more if there was no romance at all in the movies. She had the potential to be so badass and then they just gave her the same old female weakness.
That being said (ignoring the glowing bullshit from “Desolation” because jesus fucking christ what the hell was that?), I think Eva did a great job and made Tauriel fun to watch.
So if being in love is a ‘weakness’, how come no on calls Aragorn or Kíli ‘weak’ for being in love? How come a woman being is love is ‘weak’, but not a man? Since when is being in love at all a weakness? If anything it’s fuel for the fire to go and get things done for the ones you love.
Hell, Fíli and Kíli love their uncle, and Thorin loves the right back (sure its family love and not romantic, but it’s still love). Gloín loves Gimli and his wife, but no one ever smack talks him. And Legolas and Gimli love each other too (be it platinic/friendship love or romantic, again, love is love) and no one puts them down either. Why is no one calling out Legolas for loving a lower class Sylvan elf? Why is no one calling out Kíli for loving and elf period when clearly the rest of the company wouldn’t stand for it?
I’m sick of people calling the woman in a romantic involvement weak. That is all.
It’s not being in love that makes get weak, it’s being unable to differentiate between her job and her emotions that does that. And yes being in love absolutely made Kili weak in some lights. Aragorn, however was willing to put aside his love to do his job. I hate that everyone gets so damn feminist every time a female character comes up. I dont give a damn that she is a woman, but in movies they make women “unable to resist love”; aka WEAK TO IT. That’s the point I was making, that it a stupid, overused plot point in movies. Not that she is weak because she is in love, but because one night of conversation and she’s willing to let her prince and soldier run off alone (maybe to his death) to save a dwarf she barely knows. She gave up her duty because of a pretty face and some smooth words. It was stupid and the scene was obnoxious, especially since she’s a fighter and they tried to compare her to Arwen who is on a completely different level elf wise (her father is one of the greatest eleven healers according to the LOTR movies). If you wanna argue this further, you have my phone number, but dont call me out for something you damn well know I dont mean.
Now that I can understand. Their relationship did build extremely quickly. I just see so many posts about ‘she weak b/c she’s a woman in love’ and that’s how i took it, not as ‘she was unable to resist it and fell weak to it’ as you just said. (sorry being getting a lot of other bull thrown at me today in general)
It’s alright hun I’m also just a little butthurt about this fandom in general. I got treated like an outcast at Katsucon for being non-Hobbit cast. Hope your day gets better
