Thumbs up

Argh, I'd never have found that one! (I thought the first word was "but" and that put me on a wrong track) Congrats, Blind Guardian!

Ah! Do you know how heavy some hard covered books are?

I kid. I put that together without use of the books and I would love to know who said it and when!

But without further ado!

Weird fact.

“I am the” appears twice in each LoTR Book and twice in Silmarillion. The Hobbit uses it five times ruining the symmetry.

Although none fit the first segment ending in a colon.

I’m convinced it starts “I am” though. So I’ll take a T to weed out the third word.

m---t---t

This word. This word is fascinating. “Tiest” almost has to be the last half but what’s the first to start with an M?

Ok.

“I am ten” is in the return of the king the kid that shows Pippin around. Obviously that doesn’t fit. “I am the” doesn’t seem to fit with any of the instances I can find.

Ok.

N I assume not every three letter a word is “and” so let’s break apart the segments.

Ding ding! Except I got it from "The Children of Hurin" book. So add this to your count of weird facts, cause I found a new one!

I used to have a Melkor quote in my signature but I changed it because I got bored of it. I'm a big Melkor fan ^_^

Found it!

That 3232 pattern at the beginning has me thinking poem or song.

But obviously I’ll need to get some letters.
