|Reviews for Gay, Useless Hobbitses|
| JR Gringo chapter 1 . 1/9/2006
First of all, lemme tell you I AM a LOTR fan. That said, lemme rip on those reviewers who don't know a good controversial poem when they see one:
To ValkyrieRavenfeather: who said that? Read it again and you'll see (s)he meant Elijah Wood was stupid, not Frodo. You're just assuming.
To Arael the 15th: when did XantheXanthias ever say (s)he didn't read the book? Also, most heroes are in fact "strong and tough muscle-heads."
TheDuke'sLover: as a matter of fact, it is his/her business. The books and the movies were for the PUBLIC. (S)he's entitled to his/her opinion. XantheXanthias is a homophobe? Excuse me, did I hear right? Looks like you're the one judging and buttin' into peoples business. (By the way, you didn't have to read his/her poem either. Or did you even read it?)
natanna: good review.
the-loopy-lupe: again, good review.
EternalSummer: Dude, calm down, you're takin' this way too seriously. (By the way, (S)he wrote Elijah was uneducated, not Frodo...get it? it's a joke...nevermind). Other than that, great job.
eddie: says you! I hope you're just browsing and not staying...
Gamista: exactly, right on!
me: yeah, they wear big shoes! Actually, I think the best part was the rhyming, but to each their own eh?
Whew, I'm done, and people, let's try to stick to the facts and not put words into people's mouths. My suggestion: don't assume (it makes an "ASS out of U and ME"...get it? it, it's another joke...oh bother, what's the use...)

Gay and stupid do not go hand-in-hand as some people think.
| Arael the 15th chapter 1 . 7/27/2005
Wow, I think I actually heard an angel lose its wings by your ranting. Seriously, read the book if you're so damn pissed at the movie. Frodo was getting mentally warped by the Ring's intoxication and power, so lay off the Shireling. Secondly, you're tone and voice is just as whiney as you depict Frodo as, just in a differnet way. Also, not all heroes are strong and tough muscle-heads, you dig, daddy-o? To be perfectly honest, I think you should have jsut NOT watched the rest of Lord of the Rings and saved us the trouble of hearing you rant and complain.

You knwo what is bullshit? You. You go on stereotypes to see that "Frodo might be gay" Just becuase a guy is caring and smart doesn't mean that he's gay. and if he was, is it your business? Does he give a shit about what you think?(or does anyone?) If you acted a bit more like Frodo, people would like you better, you you really hate him so much, don't watch the movie. Simple as that. You don't need to write a homophobic poem about fictional characters.

Haha, great. I neer really thought about his gayness. Personaly they freak me out. Good job again. YOu really have a way with
| natanna chapter 1 . 4/1/2005
I like the 3rd stanza. Heh.
Interesting take on Frodo. I do think he was... soft... in the movie, but I go by the book. Two very different things.
Btw.. the "king" referred to in The Return of the King was actually Aragorn claiming the throne of Gondor. Nothing to do with Frodo.
I still say Peter Jackson spoiled the whole story with his movie but oh well, the scenery was nice. :)

Frodo was fifty when he went on the quest and come on! He got stabbed by the morgul witch king's blade, stung by shelob's gigantic stinger, his finger bitten off by Gollum and to top it off he has to carry the life force of the greatest evil power in MIDDLE EARTH! *Takes breath* Further more if Frodo really did fall in love with sam why does he treat him like a slave? Er..I mean, Frodo and Sam are good friends and thats all! As for your comment on Elijah Wood-well thats all a matter of opinion ofcourse, but he was chosen for the movie that Won Eleven Academy Awards (None of them his, I'll admit) so thats got to count for something. I really don't think you beleive half of the things that you wrote because who couldn't love Lord of the Rings? Plus, of all the characters to peg homosexuality on I can't beleive you didn't elaborate on Legolas and Gimli's "relationship". Alright, I'm done defending it.

Betrayed! Gah! I am ashamed of you! How could you say such horrible things about darling Frodo? Have you read the books, I wonder, or are you just going by the films. Because Frodo certaintly wasn't pampered as much as most of the wealthier hobbits.
From the age of 12 to 21, he lived as an orphan. Though not abused, he certaintly didn't get pampered in Brandy Hall, which was terribly crowded. When he moved in with Bilbo, Frodo was allowed some luxuries, but he also worked very hard.
Although Peter Jackson does not stress this in the movies, Frodo was highly educated, and much more intelligent than any of the other hobbits. He alone knew how to speak Elvish, he knew a good bit of the history of Middle Earth, he was well-read, and he also read into the characters and intentions of people very well.
At that comment you might be inclined to scream "Gollum!" loudly, to remind me that Frodo did not judge him very well, but in the books, Frodo had a very good idea of what he was up to. Frodo repeatedly threatened Gollum, if he practiced any treachery. Since Gollum was enslaved by the ring, if Frodo, wearing it, were to command the creature, Smeagol would be forced to adhere. Frodo understood this well, and used the point to his advantage. Tolkien actually had an entire passage explaining that Frodo's kindness was not to be mistaken with stupidity, and that Frodo gave his trust with a fair measure of caution.
In the end, when Gollum attacks Frodo on Mount Doom, Frodo fights him off and then says something to this effect: "If you trouble me again, *you will cast yourself into the fire.*" A few pages later, Frodo succums to the ring, but Gollum attacks him (because of the fact that Frodo spared Smeagol earlier, I might add.) Gollum takes the ring, and what happens? He casts himself into the fire!
Again, I don't know if you've read the books or not, so I'm explaining this just in case you haven't. Things went down quite a bit differently in Tolkien's version, and it is quite obvious that Frodo is the hero, and, I might add, wasn't gay. Tolkien was a very devout Christian, and I don't think he would make his protagonist gay. Peter Jackson, whose main goal in life was to hype up the drama, made Frodo a much weaker character. That being said, I don't believe Elijah Wood can be blamed for the way his character came off. Peter Jackson was telling Elijah how to play the scenes, and he was just going along with the director's wishes.
In the book, Frodo did have his moments of weakness, but we see in the brief time that Sam carries the ring that Frodo is handling it quite well. Sam, who probably was the second best person for the position of ring-bearer, had the ring for less than 48 hours, and was very close to putting on the ring a number of times. Therefore, I think it is safe to conclude that Frodo did a much better job than anyone else might have.
Frodo was also a very kind person, with a vibrant personality. We have to look early in the text to see Frodo as he was most of his life, because the ring certainly made him less amiable. But if you look at the early parts of the book we see that he was very witty, and an altogether good person.
In HP, I believe, Sirius Black says that a good way to judge a person's character is to look at the way they treat their "inferiors." We see very little of the relationship of Frodo and Sam as it was before the quest, but Frodo must have been a very good master to inspire such loyalty in Sam. In what we do see, Frodo is always very courteous and kindly to Sam, and their relationship quickly blossoms into a pure friendship. Tolkien presents The Shire as a community rooted in social customs and stations, so for Frodo to be so friendly to Sam shows the kind of hobbit that he is.
I'm sorry to go on ranting like this, but... I can't help it! I don't know how you could be so hideously mean to my darling hobbit, but I hope I have done something to aid you in rethinking your harsh oppinion of Frodo. Sorry to have bored you.

Oh man. I am going to have FUN with this. You were the reason abortion and suicide were invented! Your poetry sucks MY BALLS! seriously, go climb up your ass, and NEVER COME BACK.
| Jo Madden chapter 1 . 12/14/2004
I LOVE IT! It's hilarious. I am a LOTR fan (but i prefer Sam) and you've said what needed to be said. Keep it up.
| me chapter 1 . 9/26/2004
that poem didn't flow well. You were trying too hard to rhyme. And although I didn't like your topic, i guess it's none of my business that you aren't a fan of the cough cough GREATEST movie ever cough cough. lol. anyway, wouldn't you be slightly insane if you were in that position? being so short and all? but you know what they say about guys with big feet... XD
| AmberSky chapter 1 . 9/26/2004
I gotta say no to this one, mostly because I love the Lord of the Rings, and especially Elijah Wood. . .because he is so fine. Some parts Frodo could have done more. but the ring was like. . .corrupting him .. .and i'm getting way too into this so i'll stop. (Keep criticizing kerry though! i'll support that.) Please e-mail me and tell me why you found my one poem to be 'another bunch of crappy lyrics' i'd really like to get some constructive criticisim on that one. . .or we could just like different styles of music.
