A series of asks sent to me by my wonderful child, lamentforboromir.
I gotta say, this never even occurred to me when I was thinking of all of the reasons why I don’t like this pairing, but she’s absolutely right. Besides it being a whole lot of OOC nonsense, it is also rife with consent issues.
Now, I’m not going to pretend that I haven’t been interested in some dub-con pairings, but in all of those there was a pretty clearly defined Bad Guy. And while I think we can all agree that Thranduil is a total jerk, the guy is definitely not a rapist.
And I would like to take this moment to state, once again, that elves only have one sexual partner their entire lives. This is canon. Tolkien explicitly stated it. So the fact that Thranduil has a son? Pretty good indicator that he’s not fucking dwarves in his spare time.
I realize I’m letting myself get all het up about this before it even happens, but you know. That’s just how I roll.
