Tolkien Oxonmoot 2020

I recently logged out from over 6 hours of the new online moot. Strange, but deeply enjoyable, to read the chats of so many fans at the same time, including those at the other side of the world! :D

White-Hand Thanks for starting this thread

Thanks for starting this thread, Huinesoron.

I agree with you that the first response to the 2 quotations from The Hobbit is that the book is 'children's fantasy and wasn't intended to be set in...

Squatter, I'm glad that you're coming, and that you got a room in St. Hugh's, which isn't too far from St. Antony's.;)

Thumbs up I have, thanks!

Pervinca, thanks for reminding me about the booking situation. Luckily, I was in touch over 2 weeks ago, but even then, had difficulties due to the demand. The TS admitted it was 'blown away' by the...

Thank you for your review of the exhibition, Lalaith!:D It's nice to read that you 'could have stayed there all day', and that what was there 'really conveyed what an incredibly talented artist...

Boots Trotter

R.R.J Tolkien, when you asked if Tolkien 'originally had much more of the hobbits in the Lord of the Rings' which were later cut out, I thought at once of a hobbit called Trotter in the early drafts,...

'Should you be giving certain people bad ideas?'

Formendacil, I found what you wrote here interesting:

Nah, the real twist will come (at the end of season three or four) when Aragorn is killed and Evilagorn takes his place as part of some long...

As Inziladun said, welcome to you anyway, Rhun charioteer! Please don't worry about the delay in introducing yourself. I lurked for a long time before I decided to join, let alone make any...

Thumbs up Tolkien Events 2018

Belated congratulations to you, skip!

Silmaril Thank you for your replies

Thank you for your replies, Huinesoron and Inziladun! :D

The trouble with Aldarion and Erendis is that it's so unrelentingly bleak.

But I would say that...

Thumbs up I agree
