!!Tropes:

* AbhorrentAdmirer: No character canon -except for Gimli and the Dark Lords- wants anything to do with their fangirls.


Added DiffLines:

* ClingyJealousGirl: Arwen and Eowyn. May God have mercy upon your soul if you are a Aragorn or Faramir luster who decides to act on their impulses.


Added DiffLines:

* FateWorseThanDeath: In Middle-Earth, torture IS worse than death.
-->"I think Kenna is missing too," Fawkes replied. "She hasnít slept in her bed. I just hope she has been killed and not abducted."\\
Kat nodded. Death at [=OFUM=] meant spending time at the Halls of Mandos before being sent back (though getting a few lessons first, of course). Being alive could quite often mean a fate a great deal worse.


Added DiffLines:

* OddFriendship: At the beginning of the second year, Thranduil and Denethor have bonded over being portrayed as abusive parents by bad writers.

Added DiffLines:

* BrainBleach: Lobotomies, mindwipes and the like are on high demand due to the staff's "learning through mental scarring" teaching methods.
-->'''Legolas:''' I was chased by Elvea and Sauronette when one opened just in front of them, and they fell down into the Uruk-hai breeding caverns.\\
'''Elrond:''' Oh, so that was the loud-pitched scream I heard about 'need acid to remove my eyes'?


* CompletelyOffTopicReport: It happens when Lina's roommate mistakes Lina's list of random elven-sounding names for her "How To Conquer Middle-Earth" essay and gets it delivered to Sauron. Fortunately, the Dark Lord mistook it for a kill list.



* GoodIsNotNice: Elrond! Assigns a crap-load of homework, and prone to temper-tantrums when someone gets their facts wrong.

Added DiffLines:

* ParentalSexualitySquick: Legolas doesn't want to hear about his parents' romantic escapades.
-->"Is it any wonder we get written as bunnies, doing everyone at every opportunity?" Legolas said darkly. To his amazement, his father only smiled.\\
"Alas, they do not realise that since we do not arrange marriages among Elves and marry only when we are most certain it is love, we like to enjoy the rewards of such a strong love. Your mother and I have enjoyed..."\\
This time, Legolas put his own hands over his ears and blocked the rest of the sentence out. Some things were the same, be you Elf, Human or Balrog. There were mental images concerning your parents that just weren't right.

Added DiffLines:

* TakeThat: Aimed at Microsoft and Yahoo in Chapter 14.


* DidNotGetTheGirl: Averted surprisingly with Gimli.

* RougeAnglesOfSatin: A RunningGag. There are many mini-balrogs in the OFUM, named Grimli, Gimly, Aragon, Bromir, Borimir, Marry, Gandolf, Gandlaf, Bormor, Pippi... apparently they spring to existence when someone spells a Middle-earth's character wrong, or so. It's a convention adopted by [[ProtectorsOfThePlotContinuum a very similar series.]]
