Minas Tirith, certainly. I can't live not being near the sea, and though Rivendell and Lothlorien are enchanting, I can't love them as they're too perfect for me.

Sorry if I burst anyones bubble, but I think the time travel theory is just a wee bit obsessive. Middle Earth, to me, is neither real or imagined, there's so much we don't know. Tolkien, for a start....

In the Silmarillion it says there are many different names for Numenor, and Atlante is mentioned. I've always thought of it as like the legend and I don't think Tolkein wanted to spell it out, but...

I'm not so much angry at writers of bad slash etc, rather I pity them. If it makes them happy to waste time having other people made at them, then who am I to tell them to stop? On the other hand,...

I would want to have more about the different peoples, like the Easterlings, and have more about the places off the map.

And maybe more poetry.

Ah, memories. It wasn't too long ago I read LotR, I would say I was doing homework, and read on my bed, usually as the light from the setting sun came in. I would imagine that what I could see from...

Okay, I don't know if where I am is screwed, but you're almost shunned if you don't use imagination. You even have to conform to the boundaries of imagination, so if what you imagine isn't funny or...

I have to say, I love Leaf by Niggle.To me the part that is the best is the very end, with the actual leaf, by Niggle. The whole story is pretty out of it, Niggle's journey, and so on, but its just a...

Well, when I die I plan on being mummified, in a huge pyramid bigger than any so far. I won't, then, have a tombstone as such, but I'll have something written in letters only readable from the air....

I have to say that I pretty much never read fantasy because, in my opinion, it's all the same. There's always heroes and dragons and really cheap thrills and magic that's ridiculous. I know I've...

I've always wondered about the different stars thing, and Aragorn would have had to go far south for them to be different, maybe not quite to the southern hemisphere but definetly near the equator....

At first I was p****d off when Faramir did the whole 'bad' thing, but I think he redeemed himself pretty well by actually letting Frodo go. As for Gimli, I don't think people would have understood...

I go for Eowyn all the way, Arwen's so annoying, she's so incredibly perfect but in an arrogant, superior way. Honestly, you can't compare killing the lord of the Nazgul to sitting at home....

I really wanted Aragorn and Eowyn to end up together, Arwen shouldn't be with him because in the book there's no real sense of love between them, no chemistry. Ok she dies for him but it seems to me...

I think Tolkien's men are meant to be us, after all we're only human and so are they. Elves are almost what people would want to be if they could have everything (beauty, strength and immortality)....

Well, long story behind my name. It comes from a Terry Pratchett book, Hogfather. Basically in the book the Hogfather (kind of like Santa) is killed and there's lots of spare belief in the world....

This isn't just Aragorn but I hate the bit where he's dreaming of Arwen and says "I am dreaming" and she replies "then it is a good dream". How's that for dodgy? (or maybe it's just me)

Sting Why are most good guys ment to be tall? (excepting hobbits, naturally?)

Why are men and elves always tall or why are 'lesser men' said to be shorter? It can't be so the chicks have someone taller than because they're tall too!! I don't have anything against tall people...
