I had weird dream.

It was my first day at a company called “LunaCorp” and at least Encaitare and Formendacil worked there too. I was “clocking in” (which was like this high tech fingerprint and...

I should have been more clear that my 2nd post comparing Elrond and Galadriel was not directed towards anyone or anything that's been said on this thread, or on the 'Downs. I did something that I...

I'd also just like to point out the criticism of depicting a young Galadriel being an armored up fighter smells of sexism when the same criticism isn't made that depicts Elrond as a fighter.

I think that demographic is larger than you believe it to be, or I should say the demographic isn't just film-fans. It was either Milton Waldman, or one of publishers when Tolkien was trying to get...

I doubt anyone would go in with the expectation this will be "faithful" to the source material, seeing Boyens' involvement, and Newline's.

Having said that, it is a subject matter, or story...

Not to give Lommy more cringes, but just thinking about Galadriel being a water-bender because, you know she has the "Ring of Water."

I'm not sure if they're paid for their PJ fanaticism (which actually makes it worse, imo, I mean you would have to pay me to go to their level of gushing I saw when the movies were out). I was...

I'm not sure I would classify Elrond and Cirdan's refusal to take it as they were themselves afraid to take it. According to Elrond, Isildur basically laid claim of it from the get go and would have...

The comments about this news were seriously disgraceful. Being passionate about the source material is no excuse.

Good spot. My best guesses would be a Noldor elf, perhaps from the House of Fingolfin. That would seem to make the most sense. So perhaps an item passed down to Gil-galad, and they figure a spear...

Double-posting for another thought has jumped into my mind, that in my opinion points to a character flaw (or weakness, if you prefer) within Isildur.

It's not that he refuses the council to...
