One Ring To Confuse Them All

| Friendly | May 17, 2016

(I’m at a concert with two friends, one female, one male. We’re all cosplayers and generally rather nerdy, so naturally I prick up my ears when a group of teenagers next to me starts discussing the Lord of the Rings.)

Teen Girl #1: “I found it way too complex.”

Teen Boy: “Really?”

Teen Girl #2: “Yeah, I just couldn’t figure out who the bad guy was. The one who ran away with the ring, or the “Grey” or “Red” or whatever, or Sauron?”

(Cue the three of us sharing an incredulous look…)
