Yes, that sort of "desire" has no noble connotation in Arda. Ar-Pharazon of Numenor went a step further, actually taking his first cousin to wife. Where that stood in place among his myriad sins is...

My father first read The Hobbit to me when I was probably around 5 years old, and I've been enthralled with Middle-earth ever since.

Par for the course, I guess.



The US army's last cavalry charge was in the Philippines in early 1942. I don't know about the British forces or the Japanese, but the Wehrmacht used horses...

Thanks for that, WCH.

I have not seen it. I honestly forgot about it, as a lot of RL stuff has been going on the past few months. I wasn't all that enthused about it anyway, obviously.

I think a possible downside of that strategy would have been Maeglin cottoning onto what they were about, and taking some proactive measures of his own.

Also: political intrigue? Speeches?...

Ominously, YouTube channels (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NhHTIO6SaYY) are now touting the coming series as a possible GOT successor.

Bad enough that in the same video they mention a Stephen...

I'm not a devoted watcher of GOT, but I'm familiar enough with it to have indeed suspected that any Middle-earth based series might follow that template. No doubt it's been a resounding ratings...

The first part seems reasonable, the second: not so much. Tolkien just doesn't give the appearance of a man who would have found that amusing.
