Silmaril So who's still around?

I guess I fall back into the 'back after a long absence' category.

Long absence being about 3 years!

But I was feeling nostalgic and was compelled to visit.

Returning

I confess to being one of those members that just kind of...drifted away. I can't even remember why I did so. But now I'm back, most likely, even if on a kind of on/off basis and hoping that most of...

Personally I feel that if too many changes were made to The Hobbit (e.g. the changing of who was in the Company) I just wouldn't be happy with it, and I don't think I would even go and see it.

Fair enough, she wandered into his woods. That doesn't mean she was willing to marry someone she'd never met.

Arguably, Gandalf DID manipulate Bilbo into giving up the ring, but as was already stated, I think the motivation behind the manipulation is what makes it evil, not the action. Not very much is...

Definitely not how I imagined Ghan-Buri-Ghan...it would have been good if PJ had put him in, but I don't think I'll miss it all that much.

Not long, not long...well, I get it on Christmas Day, but I may be reduced to begging before then.

Silmaril A Long-expected Party

I think one thing that this chapter had in common with the Prologue, as others have said, the emphasis is again on the hobbits.

The tone at the beginning is very lighthearted, the hobbits...

I'm probably reiterating what everybody's said, but oh well.

I have to say, I didn't really notice any derision. True, Billy Crystal's jokes got old really fast, but I don't think that was necessarily RotK related. And yes, the LotR lot, in my personal...

To the best of my knowledge, it's been a long time since I posted on this thread, so my location - Glasgow, Scotland. In *counts on fingers* 6 months, it might be Edinburgh, Scotland.
