Viggo Mortensen/Orlando Bloom or Viggorli is the fannish RPF slash pairing of Viggo Mortensen and Orlando Bloom. It was the most common non-Hobbit RPF pairing in Lotrips fandom.

The actors worked together on Peter Jackson's movie trilogy The Lord of the Rings.

Ship History

Viggo and Orlando worked together on Lord of the Rings from 1999 to 2004.

The movies' extensive behind the scenes documentaries, as well as the two actors' closeness and behaviour during premieres, promo, etc., provided fans with an abundance of shipping material.

There was a small contigent of tinhats within the fans, fuelled for example by interpretations of Viggo's poems, especially Communion.

Common Tropes

Example Fanworks

As the ship predates centralized platforms such as AO3 and YouTube, many fanworks for the pairing might have been scattered and/or lost. A large number of works housed on Livejournal in particular have been either locked down or deleted.
