I LOVE headcanons! I just found out about them the other day, and so I’ll come up with some! Please don’t steal them to use as your own; repost if you want, but give me some credit! Spoiler alert!
Lord of the Rings

- Arwen loved visiting Galadriel, and told her all her secrets, even the fact that she had a crush on a mortal.

- When Pippin was a baby, his first word was, “Mer-Mer!” because he couldn’t pronounce Merry.
- The hobbits are cold on Caradhras, so they all cuddle together with Frodo in the middle, because he’s the one they love the most, so they want him to be plenty warm.

- Roses are Sam’s favorite flower, and he always tends to those first thing every morning before any other flower.
- Aragorn got the name Strider from Arwen. His nickname for her was Luthien.
- The reason Gollum hates Sam is because of his close relationship with Frodo. It reminds him of his friendship with Deagol, and he doesn’t want to think about that.

- The night at the foot of Mt. Doom, when Frodo slept in Sam’s arms, he dreamed that he would have to leave Sam forever, and he secretly hoped that he would die after he finished the Quest so that would never have to happen.
- Treebeard’s entwife was taller than him and much better at nearly everything.
- Gimli has never actually met a dwarf woman because his parents didn’t want him to have a girlfriend until he was 500.

Anime and Manga
- Chiyo loves Sailor Moon. She gets Kashima and Yuzuki to dress up with her for halloween. Chiyo is Usagi. Kashima is Ami. Yuzuki is Haruka because she refuses to be anyone other than the bad girl. When they arrive at Nozaki’s house, he snaps pictures of them because they’re wearing sailor suits.
- No one, to this day cannot figure out why a girl who bakes as much as Makoto can be so skinny.
- The Attack on Titan wings were inspired by a bird who flew past a Titan’s head, completely unafraid. (I don’t know much about AoT, but what do you think?)
- All the Sailor scouts go shopping and Usagi charges it to Mamoru’s credit card.
- Nozaki and Chiyo, plus Kashima and Hori, plus Yuzuki and Wakamatsu all go on a group date!!!! And Mikorin comes too. With a figure of a girl from his video game.
- AU: The scouts all reincarnate except for Michiru and Hotaru. MWA HA HA!!!!!!
- Kashima can’t tell anyone except for her close friends that she likes Hori… she’s too popular for her own good!
