As much as I am tired of the ubiquitous blond elves that are appearing since PJ-Sue dropped peroxide bombs on Arda, I had a run in with someone telling me *only* vanyar can be blond. I know I have a couple of Celeborn fans who pass through here - genetically (or fictionally, I'm easy) where does his silver hair come from? Isn't he Teleri of Doriath? (this actually got started when I said I could not remember without looking if we knew that Glorfindle had crossed the ice)
Had a friend refer to "wimpy paris" fanfic as "Orlando's curse" today. Ok, girly Legolas fic gets up my nose, too but Paris? I told her I remember Hector saying * you have no strength, no character, no courage* She says I am making it up. Well, she's an orlando fan - go fig.
