Anonymous asked: In this fandom full of flailing and feels posts you're actually articulate. Can you explain to a bystander why the Thorin/Bilbo ship is still so popular? I don't understand it. I know most of this fandom is teenage girls and dick male characters are popular amongst them but after the second movie, why is it still such a big ship for the fluff lovers when it's obvious that Thorin is not a good person?? Do people *think* once in a while???
In an inbox of largely lovely messages, anon, you’re actually rather rude. Which is something I hope you realized when you were typing this.
But let’s discuss anyway, because you bring up some interesting talking points. And yes, I feel like I can explain a few things, and hopefully provide some insight, as you’ve requested.
Purr = happy cat noise
Gato = Spanish for cat
Purgatory = infinite realm of happy Spanish cats
