From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Very Secret Diaries are a series of satirical slash fiction stories written by Cassandra Clare in the form of diary entries by various characters in New Line Cinema's The Lord of the Rings film trilogy following the release of The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring. Claire wrote a handful more stories with the release of The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, but then abandoned the series.

The Very Secret Diaries were widely read both within and outside of the fan fiction community. They were considered to be "phenomenally successful" and a "cult classic",[1] as well as something "which no Tolkien fan should miss".[2] Her portrayal of Aragorn was described as "half-Hamlet, half-Adrian Mole".[1] It was also noted that "Cassie now has groupies"[2] and that the stories had a fandom of their own.[1] A dramatization of the diaries was featured in the documentary Ringers: Lord of the Fans.[3]

Following Claire's lead, several other Secret Diaries websites sprung up, either re-posting Cassandra Claire's original diaries[4] or writing entirely new diaries for Tolkien's characters.
