In the course of my occasional googling to see what's holding up the revival of the Lord of the Rings musical (there was originally large text promising us this revival in 2015, which has given place to a vague "COMING SOON", on the website), I noticed a thing.

There is an old discussion thread about the musical, including a review by Mithalwen near the bottom of the page. Apparently Gildor and Glorfindel are both women in the musical version, the former having a different name.

This sounds like something somone should write a badass femslash fic about! Not my niche, but it's just screaming for someone to write it, IMHO.

Ooh. Not that I need any more plot bunnies . . .

I think I've read a female Glorfindel before but I can't remember where.

I know right? *sidelong glance at overpopulated yet underfed plotbunny hutch"

I am so on board with female Glorfindel. It was never anything I'd though about before, but I loved the idea immediately when I ran into it.

I, uh, I really like that. I can't promise to write it, but it's actually pinging something.

Ooh, cool. I know how it is with ideas not always making it to the page, but I love that, at any rate, the notion struck something for you!

Oh interesting! Female Gildor and Glorfindel -- that would be very cool indeed. :D

The idea makes me happy for some reason!

Gratuitously adding "The Flight to the Ford" from the LOTR musical. It has A.R. Rahman's signature all over it, and the powerful soprano at the end is "Glorfindel."

Oh that's Glorfindel at the end? Whee!

Gratuitous LotR musical tracks are always welcome on this journal! That one does pack a punch.
