I know this may shock you, but most people's minds don't automatically run towards slash. If I hear about a half-Klingon, half-Cardassian, my immediate thought is not "OMG GARAK AND WORF HAD A BABY SQUEE."

Quite the opposite, in fact. You have to be nimble or you get trampled in the stampede.

More like, "By all that's holy, what produced such a sin against nature?"

sigh. Sorry I tried to make a joke. I'll just stick to complimenting the fivers and not attempt other commentary.

You people are very, very strange. Clearly the seminal pairing that would produce a half-Dwarf, half-Elf would be Arwen and Thorin Oakenshield. I would have thought that was obvious.

Hm. Of course, in the case of my cousin, Fredifar Bolgerinuel the half-Elf, half-Hobbit, there are any number of possible pairings...

I know OT-ness is a common occurence here, but this is starting to get into the realm of the surreal. :shock:

Whoa!

evay, do you honestly think anyone here was attacking you? This is perfectly normal forum banter. I'm sorry we (or just I) offended you. It was absolutely unintentional.

What I find offensive, on the other hand, is this implication that all I want to hear is praise for fivers. You know me better than that. Anything readers have to say, I want to hear -- and that goes double for my friends. How else am I supposed to know when I'm screwing up?

Opium: If you're implying that the rest of us didn't "really" get the joke because it referred to some LotR parody, can you let us in on it? I know well how much fun it is to catch something others miss, but now that you've said so, it's only fair to tell us what.

Zeke: I figured you all did get the joke, too. But there always has to be someone who's like, "Well, I got it because I *insert reason here*!" And many probably got that too, or not... *ominous music*

That being said...if you read enough LOTR parodies, good and bad, you realize that, hey, a lot of people won't go near L/G even in their parodies, and a lot will just imply that it'll never ever at all happen, and some then parody the fact that itL/G never happens, and some parody the parody of the parody, and....

it's a parody world, it is. Not enough pie, though.

(can yah tell I haven't read LOTR fandom in a while, and now have to cover up the fact that I can't find a good parody to recomend? )

No, I didn't feel attacked. ("I am familiar with human banter." -- Seven of Nine, "Equinox, Part 2") What I thought was an obvious -- and harmless -- joke in the LOTR fandom was apparently offensive to others, which was not my intention either. I did not expect that response from four people in a row.

I declare as case of "No harm, no foul" on all sides and vote we go back to talking about whatever we were talking about before, most likely pie. Or cedar. Or lemmings.

Mmm, cedar and lemming pie. High in fiber. And fur.

Nobody found your post offensive, evay. Several of us found it gross.

I'll see that and raise you a "Would you please continue the petty bickering? I find it most intriguing."

I would mention Sev Trek's "Half-Klingon Half-Tribble" cartoon, but since everything on his fracking site went subscription, you can't see it any more. Of course, since almost everything on his site isn't funny any more, it's not such a big loss.

I know. He totally ruined it when he changed the layout and moved the site a year or so ago.

I haven't been there since.
