Oh, I like that! Gimli is fresh from Moria. His kinsman, Balin, has died there.

What if she tells him that the glory of Moria was built with the dwarven rings? No doubt that's true, and she lived...

I agree that he'd not find running away very tempting.

Maybe if Galadriel offered the Havens and Arwen would then not have to choose a mortal life? He might find that tempting--it's one thing to...

I'm so pleased the fanfiction forum has been resurrected on the Downs. We had such a collection of stories that stayed close to canon and efforts to stay true to Tolkien's voice. Are we accepting new...

What do you think Galadriel tempted each member of the company with? How did they answer that temptation? We know she offered Sam his heart's desire: a return home, and a bit of garden of his own. We...

Though it didn't turn out to be no fuss, no muss, thanks to you I am back from the dead! Or, well, this being the Downs, back ... to the dead? Newly Undead? Raised from the Dead?

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...

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.

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...
