Title: Your "fanship" with Elijah?
Post by: Lorienel on May 07, 2009, 07:45:13 am

What is your fan relationship with Elijah, and how has it developed?

He used to be my huge, huge crush once, but it has changed. I still love him, as a fan, but I have moved on to other things, and I'm more of a fan of Tolkien books and LotR fellowship of the cast as a whole. I adore their friendship. But it doesn't close out chance of going out with him if he would ask. ;)

Anyway, seeing hotness in a lot of other guys now.

mine never stopped. ;)

interesting topic seeing that the forum once used to be a hotbed for serious and not so serious discussions.

my fandom for elijah is like a roller coaster ride that never ends. it has its highs and lows, but never a dull moment. :)

I wasn't a fan of Lij till Lotr came out then I started buying his films etc.. I think he is a good actor and a real nice guy. He was so cute and sexy in Lotr. Just his general look I guess..*sigh* I may not buy every film he appears in now though depends if is good or not. So I don't know what my fanship with Elijah is... :P I wrote a letter to him and recieved a signed photo!

My fist celeb crush was Craig Charles of Red Dwarf and Keanu Reeves. ;D
I also liked River Phoenix and would say I am a big fan of him I own all his films and a book, did have more books but used pics for posters in my room, lol :D

Now I am married and older I am through all that phase of posters on my wall, etc..I just admire actors for their work ;)

Interesting topic. :) I've been thinking about this a bit lately too. A few years ago, Elijah was a major crush of mine...but now it's sort of mellowed into a respect for his work and career, as well as his charity work - like Elizabeth says, he seems to be a genuiney nice person. I still think he's good-looking - but I think the crush would come back in full force if he was acting in more films.

the same thing with LOTR and Elijah, I had seen him in Back to the future II and The Good Son, but it wasn't until LOTR that I became so interested in him. Mainly because he played Frodo so well, and Frodo is my hero. I have since become not so obsessed with him , but I am always looking for stories and such. If I met him on the street I would love to tell him how much I admire his work. I have a lot of his movies. I simply love "Everything is Illuminaed" and "Greenstreet Holligans" along with LOTR. I think he's a good actor. That's why I come back to the site and check out stuff. And I truly love LOTR and will for a long long time........... b/c my husband and I dated on LOTR in the 70's. :D

I had the SAME thing happen to me. I went to the film specifically to see Orlando Bloom. And I liked the Tolkien books also. But once I saw Wood's angelic face I was captivated. He was and is just so stunning. And once I recovered from the etherial awe of his face it occured to me his performance was also fantastic! Elijah's is poetry (and a good reason to write the stuff). :)

I first started to like him from seeing him in LOTR, which basically just made me a fan of Frodo. But then I started to look up Elijah and realized how awesome he was! I respect him quite a lot so much as that I wouldn't really dream of being with him. (Hey, I'm half his age, like he'll ever ask me out!)

I had a killer crush on Elijah Wood when I was a kid (younger then age 8) because he was my first or second. It's still going strong. Haha!

I have been a fan of Elijah for 10 years now. :) It has been a bit on and of the last year but now im really stuck again, I havnt favorited anyone else during these 10 years I tried to like some actors that my friends have been obsessed with but in my mind there was always Elijah. I cant get him off my mind ever. I am fully comitted to him and I will always be his fan. As the page says Elijah Wood Always and forever, and that is soooooo true.

Lots of Love, Misskmg.

Wow, I totally love that Deenan! What a great picture! :)

I was a huge Narnia fan at first, and had a crush on William Moseley (Peter).
Then one day my mom had checked out LOTR from the library, we had never seen it. And I was really bored, and my mom was like "Why don't you watch that Lord of the Rings" movie? And I was like "oh... okay."

And so I watched it, and I absolutely LOVED it, and the first thing I thought when I saw Elijah was like "Whoa. Look at those eyes!" lol. I didn't think they could be real at first. And then I just went crazy and kept saying "Frodo! Frodo! Frodo!" Then I found out what his name was, and started coming to this site, and became a huge fan.

So, I do have a huge crush on him (posters and pix and all that on the wall) but I also do admire his talent, and respect him for that too, you know? So it's kinda both. I'm just Elijah crazy.

I haven't posted a serious comment in any Elijah thread for the best part of two years (at least!) but I figured I'd answer this question.

I first saw Elijah in Back To The Future II and Radio Flyer but I was more interested in other things at that age. I first became truly aware of Elijah Wood when (as with many of you0 The Lord Of The Rings first came out. I was thirteen years old and when i saw the trailer for the movie I thought it looked ridiculous. But I was watching my favorite Saturday morning Television show and they had Sean Astin, Billy Boyd, Dominic Monaghan, and Elijah Wood as guests. I'll admit that when I first saw Elijah I thought he was gay. He was simply very cute and very...well put together. In all honesty he looked too 'pretty' to be straight. I honestly cannot remember a word Elijah said in the interview, the person I remember most is Sean Astin.

Anyway, a week or so later I was dragged by my parents to see The Fellowship Of The Ring and during the prologue I was thinking I was gonna be sitting there and falling asleep. And then there was that scene. Frodo was sitting under that tree reading that book and then there was the close-up when he stood and realizes that Gandalf is in town. My first thought was "Okay he's cute, this won't be too bad." Remember please I was thirteen and just discovering that secret which had been kept from me for so long. Guys are hot. So I'm sitting there and much to my surprise I enjoyed the entire movie. We left and my sister-in-law told me she knew I'd like the 'Frodo guy' because of my age (by-the-by she was into Orlando, who was apparently the more grown-up crush).

Within the next two days I had purchased the first book and a book about the making of the movie.

I went back to my group (long story but this was my version of High School) and all they heard was "Elijah-this" and "Elijah-that" (or more accurately "Elliah-this" and "Elliah-that").

Well the next two years or so were spent thinking of Elijah and how cute our babies would look *ahem*

Then when I finished watching The Return Of The King (and had finished wiping away the tears) something happened inside. I looked at Elijah and thought to myself "He's not that cute..."

And essentially, I've grown up now. I look for something deeper than Elijah. The guys I'm into now are more...diverse and more active than Elijah. I give Elijah credit for doing Indie films but that's not enough. I need something more. I need someone more grown-up.

And since everyone likes this quote I shall end with it

My fandom is like a roller coaster ride that had it's up, downs, and dull moments. And now I've gotten off the roller coaster and seen a real bad looking brother who I want to get down with instead of Elijah.

Nice Description!

I was a fan of his since LOTR. This fanship has certainly developed. It's been 10 years and I still love him with the same amount of love(if it really has an amount ;) ) I never stopped liking him, not that I want to.
