Aww, Kalimac! I feel so special!

And yes, I am a she. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

Over the summer I didn't really have Internet and this semester has been crazy, so for the last couple of weeks I've just been posting in a couple of places. I'd be posting more, but I don't have my books with me... [img]smilies/frown.gif[/img] Oh well! [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

Just ran into a post by another by-gone soul - The Lorien Wanderer. I wonder what happened to him?

Not sure if I'm popular enough, but maybe you'll be adding me to this list soon. On Friday I am leaving my job, my home and everyone I know behind to move across the country. (thanks to uncle sam!) Who knows when I'll have a computer up and running again - but hopefully it's quickly enough that no one will even miss me. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

My goodness, such a lot of fuss! Miss Eruwen tol' me about all this talk, an' I couldn't believe it, so I came t' see for myself.
Well, I hope(s)he dosen't mind, but I'll tell you a bit about Mr. Frodo. Moved across th' country, y' see, or at least partways. (S)he's in college, too. On top 'a that, (S)he an' I have been tryin' to solve a little...erm..problem...

Stacey: PROBLEM?? [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img] Samwise, the PROBLEM is that you can't keep yourself out of trouble... [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img]

Sam: Eh...well, hopefully I'll be out of it, soon. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img] It's "that time of year", again, too--what with present buyin' an' wrappin' an all...OI! I think I need to go lie down... [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img] [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img]

Good to see you again, Samwise. Nice to see that you are still keeping your watch on Mr.Frodo! Sorry for talking about you when you weren't here like that, but I did fear you had gone. I guess you just got a little busy with the garden.
Do you know if Frodo plans on passing here again?

Sam:*snuffle* Thank you, Miss Tigerlily, an' you too, Nef. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img] I'd actually been missin' you, too. Speakin' of missin', I miss Mayla Took. Had some good conversations with her...
Actually, I'm busy with two gardens at th' moment, an' I've got no more room to plant an' Miss Stacey's next door neighbor goes an' digs up more bulbs an' gives 'em to me!

Stacey: I didn't see you trying to refuse them, Sam... [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img] [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img]

Sam: Well, no...er [img]smilies/confused.gif[/img]...anyhow, it's my job to keep tabs on Mr. Frodo. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img] Though I haven't heard from him or Miss Cahira myself in a few days.....possibly they've got finals at school 'r somethin'.

I'm not gone, I just didn't feel the necessity to announce a rather hectic time in my life that would prevent posting. I'm just coming out of that stage, I hope, and I may be persuaded to resume my monthy two-sentence reply. Just look, I've already outdone myself. See you all next month.

Hi guys! Good to hear from you. I've been prodded away from my fanfiction for a little bit (sorry, not LotR-related). No, I'm not dead. Or, well, am still dead. Er. Something like that. 156 pages and finally done. Now editing, but I think I've overworked my Beta-reader: she seems to be broken. Around sixty people have emailed me praise and accolades. I am a review-addict now. An original character people asked about has taken off with a few black humoured short stories of his own. What can one do?

Oh. Looks like I've been on the Downs a year now. Happy death-day to me.

Love,
Maril

Daaaamn Maril, it's always good to see you're still among the dead and the disturbed. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img] Post often, chica, we need a regular dose your black humour just as much as your characters do.

Happy Deathday, Marileangorifurnimaluim!

Hey, Tomorrow is my Deathday. You've only been dead one day longer than I have. And here I thought you had been around forever when I joined.

I wonder how many members have been around for that one year since the first film came out? (Yes, I'll own up. I started checking out Tolkien boards when they were hyping the film.)

Happy deathday to Maril, happy deathday to Maril... (maybe you could have a party like Nearly Headless Nick?)

Birdland - I admit it; I too didn't get into Tolkien forums until the movie came out; I actually discovered this site in December and lurked for a good bit before taking a deep breath and signing up.

I KNEW I was forgetting someone - Firladion Greenbow! The Robin Hood re-enactor, very nice guy. Though the costume must have made him stand out in the crowd...

Raefindel,

You said you missed Auriel Haevasawen, but she is very much alive and active. She is playing a Warg down in the Shire in an RPG that Pio and I have--the Long Winter.

That sometimes seems to happen. Folk start off posting mainly in one forum or area, and then switch to another. So you may think they're gone, when they're just realocated!

Happy Deathdays, Maril and Bird. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img])

I started a Tolkien party RPG half a year before the movie came out, on a general site, so I can't truly say that the movie brought me out. More like the death of my first online forum adventures, in XFiles realms.

Ithaeliel,

But Losthuniel isn't gone. She has a regular character Celandine the Hobbit who role plays in The Long Winter in the Shire.

And, yes, she's lots of fun!

(Maybe The Long Winter is the lost and found department for the Downs. That's the second missing person we've located there!)

Shanna, she's funny and she's my best friend. She got kicked out though, by the Barrow Wight. Don't kick me out BW! Just because she is my friend doesn't mean I have the same...character...opinion...loudmouthness (new word)...I'm gonna miss her! Don't hurt me BW! Don't hurt me! I'm a nice hobbit in a RPG!

So many new folk and old folk that an old hobbit's head fairly swims!

(Prayers much appreciated, reciprocated, and proven efficacious!)

I am up and about now, and a somewhat thinner hobbit than when my adventures with the surgeons commenced. I'm of half a mind (some would say that is my usual state) to take a picture of their orcish healing procedures. Tomorrow I return so that they may remove the hideous Frankensteinian staples from my belly!

My long-suffering soulmate, the Mrs. Gilthalion, promises unguents and remedies that will eventually remove much of the scarification. Her tender ministrations of ointments should thus remove the worst of a long scar that is now stapled from above my navel to near my nethers!

Internally, all is well enough. I have little enough of my hobbit-like appetite however, and may never regain the extensive waistcoat I've lost in the course of this adventure.

I thank you all for kindly remembering me, though it has been long since I could participate in the RPG forums (which I am delighted to have had some role in starting), and longer since I could participate in the other forums. My last article for the website was "Saruman" and I've really not done anything of a creative nature since then. (Except in small theatrical writings and performances for my Lord, for which my new thinness and long hair leaves me better suited.)

I have immensely enjoyed the Extended DVD and hope that the rest of you have as well.

After the first of the year I will be seeking new employment, and cannot answer for my time. Until then, I will try to pop in here and there and nose about a bit.

Gil! So glad to hear that you are doing better. This is the first I've heard of your ills, and shocked I was to hear of their severity. However, you have been in my thoughts often and I continue to pray for you and yours. Mosey on over to Rohan and see what has become of the quality RP you started for us so long ago. Glad to have you back!

I am going to miss Cimmerian too.

Though I have never taken part in any of the threads and rpgs here, I always enjoyed reading them. I found the rpgs featuring Cimmerian, Amanaduial, Elenna, Nevtalathiel and all else who played with them, the most interesting reading. They were always so full of life and adventure.

This is my first, and sadly, last post.

Farewell.
