Hello there, dear friends! I know, I know! I miss you all too. Well now, I’m here again. And I’m here to give a you a super fun post!
Have you ever heard about Book Madness? If not, well, it’s this super awesome series hosted by Maggie Anne Martin, where bookTubers, bloggers, and bookstagrammers will pick their favorite fictional character, create a content about how awesome their chosen character is, and encourage readers and viewers to vote for that character.
You can check out this Maggie’s vlog for a better explanation of how this event works.
This year, I was invited by Maggie, herself, to join the event, AND who am I to decline?! This is my chance to let you guys know who my favorite fictional character is, and why I love this character so much. So, by now, you’ve obviously already figured out who is the character I’m vouching for.
YES! YES! The one and only, and the most fabulous elf to ever exist in all of fictional world – Legolas Greenleaf.
A brief background about Legolas, if some of you don’t know him (although I’m pretty sure many does!).
Legolas was a Sindarin elf who was part of the Fellowship of the Ring in the Third Age. As he was the son of the Elvenking Thranduil of Mirkwood, Legolas was a Prince of the Woodland Realm (Mirkwood), a messenger, and a master bowman. (Source: LOTR Wikia)
Why I love and why I chose Legolas? Well, aside from just being one of the characters of almighty Tolkien’s Lord of The Rings and The Hobbit, it’s because LEGOLAS’ SASS IS ETERNAL. And he will forever be more fabulous than any of us (sorry, mate!). Well, maybe except his father. But, I mean, let me give you 11 reasons why Legolas is the epitome of being fabulous..
1. He’s an epic fighter, and he do it with sass
Didn’t even sweat a single drop.
2. He rides horse in style
Because this prince pointy ears defies gravity.
3. His bow and arrow skill is better than Katniss Everdeen.
With a free pout. You can also take it as a flying kiss.
4. He doesn’t let anyone touch a strand of his fabulous hair
5. Just because…
6. And when he smiles…
I can now die in peace.
7. Even his back is prettier than you
8. Even blurred Legolas is still fabulous
He never forgets to stay pretty even when the camera’s not focused on him.
9. He doesn’t age
Maybe he’s drinking from the Fountain of Youth. Loljk. I know, I know. Elves are immortal. They probably take Elixir of Life.. oops, wait. Wrong fandom.
10. And he’s a great friend
11. BONUS: He got all his sass it from his dad
That’s it guys! I can add more to this list, but I’m afraid I won’t be able to end it. Lol
