It’s because it takes so LONG to get there and you live the struggle with these characters. It just like Harry Potter. We grew up with Harry, but for some reason the LOTR struggle is just that much more emotionally taxing.
For most of us, yes. Become so involved with them that you don’t realize it until you can’t breath.
Most people I come across that have seen the films don’t see the struggle, just the ‘endless walking’ and ‘Why didn’t they just ride an Eagle?’. And I kind of want to sit them down and go ‘Okay, this is how it works’, but they’re not really that interested.
This is my mother fandom. It’s got everything.
