I am planning to post various online fads on this blog to help save them from falling into obscurity.
This post is dedicated to Cassandra Claire’s Very Secret Diaries, which is an absolutely brilliant ‘alternative reading’ of the Lord of the Rings characters. It’s text only, and may appeal more to the female audience, but it’s very well written and those who don’t know it should definitely read at least two pages. Chronological order is recommended (from top to bottom).
These things were written about half a year after the release of the first film, and have (I think) pissed off some fans. Good! People who take things too seriously need to be offended whenever and however possible.
Go and read!
