Naaaaaah...Legolas was fair-haired. Besides, I think he was Sinudrin (sp? Sinudran? It's late). Like father, like son. The only remark ever made about his hair was when he's aiming at the Black Rider...

4 out of 13! What an insult, my God!<P>My first complaint: only one actor of LotR was nominated. Mortensen should've been up against McKellen, and Wood should've been up for Best Actor. Mortensen...

Yes, he was probably already on the other side and they didn't notice. Remember that Sméagol was incredibly slinky.

Sharon, you write beautifully and I wish I could pay attention to the didactic parts of Tolkien's work that you ellaborate so well on. My passion for the trilogy and "The Hobbit" encompasses...

Oh my goodness...how could you guys have forgotten when Samwise goes to try and save Frodo? He uses the Galadriel-glass to get past those horrid-sounding guards, once he does they send off a warning...

Silmaril Without the works of Tolkien, would you remain unchanged?

I do believe I would be a very different person without Middle-earth in my bookshelves and simultaneously in my thoughts.

When reading "The Hobbit" or the trilogy, I am no longer the child...

I would like to be a mere and beautiful (which I already am) elven-maiden perhaps staying at the House of Elrond in Rivendell, one of those lovely dark-haired daydreamers, perhaps a friend of...

What a great question. I've always pictured Lothlórien as a secondary world you could slip into whilst walking in New England in the fall, while Rivendell walking in a dewy forest. I think Lórien is...

Before you examine the books ever so closely for homosexual undertones, you should examine your own thoughts that cause you disgust about homosexuality. There's room in this world for so many deities...

Oh my Lord! Did you actually say that Aragorn was an elf? Have you, like, never read any of the books and watched the movie once (with your eyes closed)? *Phoebe shudders*

LOL! LOL! LOL! S&M for...

Silmaril Which characters out of the books do you wish had fallen in love?

I always thought Éowyn was better suited for Aragorn! I love him because he's so grim, thoughtful, noble and brave, but he's also a real man (in all sense of the term). Arwen is likeable but just too...

Has it ever ocurred to you that Gollum, especially in Book IV, might have thought Frodo to be somehow Deágol (the cousin he murdered)? There he was, bearing something Smeágol greatly desired, someone...

Silmaril LOTR Fantasies...

I don't know what it is...but you get to loving and understanding almost all the Tolkien characters. You pity Boromir when he dies and comprehend his human wishes. You smile grimly inwardly along...
