You are an awesome Bilbo!

I don't know if you're already aware, but I found your picture because A Mighty Girl featured it on their Facebook page. (:…

I just found you through the same post and shared it along on facebook.  Very cool concept to go with an awesome story.  As I said in my post, I wish I'd thought to gender swap some of the parade of white boys in required reading in school.  I don't have anything against male protagonists, but we never read any books about minorities, whether gender minorities or colour/ethnic minorities.  I almost started hating reading until I found my way into the adult sections, starting with "scary" books like RL Stine pre-Goosebumps, but not really taking off until I found out there was an entire section devoted to stories like my favourite picture books as a little kid (fantasy).  Tarma and Kethry from the Oathbreakers trilogy definitely turned me into a permanent bookworm.

Anywho, paired with that story, you kind of embody something important to me now because they're right.  A female Bilbo would be an awesome role-model and is women in fiction done right (ie painted as human first).

it took me a while to come up with a good response to this, and I thought about it for and here it goes, this comment means alot to me and after seeing my cosplay on the "mighty girl" page I started to think deeply about my genderbend cosplay and what it actually embodies, I recently went to a fair in the netherlands dressed as female thor and I noticed my female cosplay started discussions and I found that very interesting and kind of honoring even though some discussions were negative, alot of people ebrased the idea of a female thor, little kids also did and some grown ups hated the idea, what I'm trying to say is.. thank you, for taking your time to write that, I thank you for sharing this with me and taking your time to do so

I hope you have a lovely day and really, thank you.

I'm touched you took my comment so seriously :D  Every comment I leave is 100% earnest and I kinda try to counter-troll the internet, leaving authentic compliments anywhere and everywhere.  Occasionally friends look at me strange for leaving long and open comments like I did here, but every time someone responds with equally honest and open appreciation makes my day right back.  I usually end up having to look back at the comment thread after awhile though to remember exactly what I said, because while it is completely honest, I also have a bad memory lol.  As such, I wasn't impatiently waiting a response.  If I get one, it's nice, if I get one like this, it's awesome, if I don't, I feel good enough that I'm counter-trolling...which should have its own've just been rainbowed?  Sounds LGBT specific...butterflyed?  Snuzzled?  Sunlit (sunlight turns trolls to stone in middle earth, right?)?  I don't know!  I'm being pretty random right now hehe.

Either way, I'm very glad my comment meant something to you and I'm touched that it meant that much to you.  Responses like this just encourage me to sprinkle more honest compliments around the web, even when I have to battle toe-to-toe with a troll. :D
