Oh, me too.

I wish he'd done chapter by chapter reviews of Martin's Song of Ice and Fire series, because by the second or third book the violence women against got to me. Yet I still want to know...

Would that I had bought six. However, I never counted on my ex keeping my one Barrow-downs mug.

Yes, exactly, Legate. I worried when he got to Bombadil--because I love Bombadil in all his unexplainable glory, though not everyone does. But lo, it was wonderful. (I should have known from mark's...

Isn't this amazing? I didn't expect any familiar names (save the Wight, of course) -- and here you all are. Esty! Mr. U! Eruhen! Is Mithadan still about?

His spoiler policies are pretty strict, but discussion of Tolkien's letters, posting fan art, and links to fanfic are all appreciated.

Markreads.net: The Lord of the Rings

I have a bit of fun to offer my old friends at the Barrow-downs. I failed to find a thread about this already (though that may be my failing rather than a lack of a thread).

At any rate,...

At this point I seem to pop by about once every year or two. Still not as bad as Gandalf, who disappeared for eighteen.

Where can I find a replacement Barrow-downs mug?

This may seem absurd, but years ago I bought a Barrow-downs mug. Alas, I lost in a move, and I find I miss it.

Are there others still about? I'd like another, please.

Bravo, Encaitare. Quite true.



I beg your pardon, but each site, like any publisher, has its own policies about what sort of stories they present.

Do you mean that authors who write slash...

Good point! You are quite correct.

Tolkien Indeed.

Yes. How would that work in such a prudish and conservative society? How would they react? If they even knew. I did research into attitudes towards homosexuality before the creation of the term, as I...

Goodness. Such anti-slash feeling. I think that it's just misunderstood. I was asked by a current poster to address this question.
