I haven't been here long, so I hope you guys don't think I'm intruding. But I'm a member of loads of different Tolkien forums. The forums that have the most problems with spam posting are the ones...

I'm trying *big emphasise on 'trying', people* to write a fanfic on some of the descendants of the Fellowship Hobbits. But it's difficult to stick precisely to Tolkiens history of what happened after...

There's a standing joke between me and my friends, that whenever anyone sees a flock of birds, they'll point it out to me and I'll scream

I don't figure Barrow-Wights look like anything. Methinks they're ghosts, invisble like and intangible. But they can animate stuff. The way I see it, a barrow-wight animated that severed arm so it...

I agree with Rose Cotton, as much as dislike Legolas, the elves of Lorien would have slaughtered the enitre company were Legolas

The first time I read LOTR, I was eleven or twelve. I cried and cried when it was over. I couldn't believe Frodo had abandoned Sam like that. I couldn't believe Gandalf and Bilbo were gone. Only...

Don't worry 'bout it DarkRose. I read LOTR when I was twelve. I've re-read since then and every time I do, I discover a wee chunk of the plot I'd missed last time round. If anything it makes it more...

Delmoth has a point! Poor Gimli. I think he'd be my second choice after Sam, but Legolas would object if they had yet to make friends.

I'm not sure what draws me to LOTR. I also have a flair for Greek and Eygptian mythology. I'll read any type of high fantasy story.

One of the worst villian 'moments' I think is when the orcs have captured Frodo after he is poisoned by Shelob and...

If they had tried to protect the Rivendell? Not sure, probably a big battle, which would eventually be lost. Then again, maybe Frodo and/or others could have slipped out of Rivendell during the...

Sting Hobbits vs. Elves. Who's your favourite race?

Okay, we've got elves, hobbits, men, orcs, ents, goblins, dwarves, trolls, etc. And Barrow Wights, of course!
I just want to know who you like best and why. That's all.
I'm a hobbit person myself....
