Earendil Halfelven has just left Hobbiton.

Hello everyone! I'm bored so I think I shall do this again and its been awhile so I have more junk to add.

Name (that you go by):Kenny(by my friends), Ken(by others), or Kenneth(when my mom is yelling at me).


Occupation: student that is about to graduate. Actually, I could graduate at the end of December but I want to take European History AP, just because I like history, so I'm doing the full year. Oh well...

Future Aspirations: A man with a good wife, good family, good job, and an Army Reserve officer, maybe. First there's college but before that, my mission... [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

Goal in life: To live, not merely exist.

Short term goals: Get a job to pay for that mission next year and after that, college.

Passion: Ahhhh, American history! [img]smilies/cool.gif[/img] Especially the American Revolution, Civil War, WWI, WWII. The CW is my best area though.

Hobbies: CW reenacting, sports, reading, computer gaming with my uncle, writing "stuff"(poetry just sounds kind of wimpy to me, but hey, thats what it is), my violin...

Famous for (okay this is where you get to brag about yourself): Having the weird nickname of "nogs." Please, don't ask...

Fave book: Stephen King's "Misery" and "Salem's Lot." (Pet Cememtary was just plain scary and I never finished it. There's just something about a 3 year old boy zombie stabbing his mother to death with a scalpel that just freaks me out.) Also, To Kill A Mockingbird(where did all those "Atticus" t-shirts come from that all the punks and goth kids are wearing? I bet they haven't even read the book), Frankenstein, Withering Heights, Gods and Generals, The Last Full Measure, Jurassic Park and Jurassic Park:The Lost World. And many others...

Fave movie: HBO's Band of Brothers, Saving Private Ryan, The Patriot, Frailty, Gettysburg, Les Miserables, The Count of Monte Cristo, A Beautiful Mind, Dumb and Dumber, Ace Ventura(both of them), K-Pax, LOTR, The Lost Battalion, Dragonfly, Dances With Wolves, Gods and Generals, Henry V, Hamlet...the list can go on and on and on.

Fave sport: Football, Basketball, you know, the usual.

Fave store: Wherever I decide to go at the moment.

Fave music: INCUBUS RULES!!!! AND SO DOES TOOL!!! Chevelle, Linkin Park, Our Lady Peace, Disturbed, Amethystium, Enya, and Beethoven's violin concerto, especially the one in Band of Brothers. I think its Op.131.

What you can't stand: People hating others because of who they are. And people who don't use their stinkin' brains to think things through.

What you plain dislike: Liberals [img]smilies/evil.gif[/img]

I'm going to add "What you think is weird" so that you can put stuff you think is weird but you don't dislike or can't stand: Truthfully, I think the "New Silmarillion" section on the forum is kind of weird with all the translating of elvish and canonizing stuff and the philosophical discussion of LOTR, but hey, people think CW reenacting is weird too. Whatever floats your boat...

Who you admire: Pres. Bush for believing in doing the right thing even if most of Europe is doomed to repeat the mistakes it made during the 1930's leading up to WWII. France, Germany, and Russia should just be thankful that I'M not president...too bad. [img]smilies/evil.gif[/img]

What you most love to do: Argue about politics, listen to Michael Savage, and all the hobby stuff.

Your self-confessed flaws: Hmmmm, there must be some flaws here somewhere... [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

What intrigues/fascinates you: People's opinion and point of view. Does that sound weird to you?

What scares you: I don't know. Not death at least because we only get to die once so I'm making sure my death is a good one.

Quotation to live by: Don't follow in other people's footsteps. Just make your own.

Additional comments: Why are you reading this?

Did this almost 6 months ago, and so it's high time...

Age: 22

Occupation: student...

Future Aspirations: I want to be a vocal bombshell of a theater actress who teaches literature at her former university...all of that after I finish my music degree in another university.

Goal(s) in life: To travel with whoever I'll marry, write a novel about about my crazy family, to play Elen in Miss Saigon and Eponine in Les Miz, to learn Elvish, to develop my voice into that of both a Celtic maiden and that of an AfricaN priestess.

Short term goals: To get a GOLD for my thesis. To kick-@$$ in an upcoming alumni concert (which is reminiscent of the Les Miz 10th anniv concert...) ----> I get the Eponine part.

Passion: Music and literature. Spirituality.

Hobbies: Reading, singing, origami...I colect bottles and use them to put my paper stars in them. Cute thing.

Famous for: being the one hit wonder in high school (not bad for an outsider who has something to prove, being the one who dresses very cool, for acing a paper about a play I only got to watch half of....

Fave book: Genesis, To Kill a Mockingbird, She's Come Undone, I Know Why the Caged bird Sings, How the Irish Saved Civilisation,

Fave movie: The Lion King, The Rundown, Magdalene Sisters, Gladiator, Beautiful Mind

Fave sport: I watch soccer (heh)

Fave store: bookstores, Body Shop, Tower Records,

Fave music: Dave Matthews is playing in my head right now! Dreamtheater, Yes, Jewel, Counting Crows, Hans Zimmerman, old school alternative (where've they all gone?), Yanni, Loreena McKennit, Tony Levin, Nora Jones

What you can't stand: bad stage management, tardiness, being told what to do, an off key in the distance...

What you plain dislike: wannabees who can't prove anything, karaoke/videoke, the smell of beer on my friends

Who you admire: Nora Jones, Benigno Aquino Jr, Martin Luther King, my bro--the music whiz kid, Bituin Escalante

What you most love to do: Yoga before dinner!

Your self-confessed flaws: I'm an insomniac, and it sucks. procrastination is so me, it makes me rot at dreaming!

What intrigues/fascinates you: vulnerable men (heh), history, Celtic spirituality, Genesis studies, Philippine folklore, the concept of time as the essence of imperfection....

What scares you: not going out and being with friends. not having to say what i want to say. not buying cds for two months! The thought of never ever getting a hug from anyone!

Quotation to live by: If God is for me, then who is against me?

I often find myself caught between two pages of a thick book, or vocalizing to some Celtic tune. People say I rock. People say I'm beautiful. People say I'm loosing weight. People say I'm crazy...and I'm a sucker not to believe them. I'm a person who determines to reinvent herself and at the same time discover who I really am beneath this shell of a displaced Fil-Am. I am an older sister to many out of wisdom, a younger sister to some who have no one to have a laugh with. I'm really generally pensive, bordering on sad, but heck. Once I break into a few four-letter words out of outragous prayer, I'm fine. (it's between God and me, so if you don't mind...) I'd rather be called spiritual. If there's a bit of truth in this world, I can't find in myself because I tend to lie to myself, and it certainly can't be found in this world. I hate to follow the crowd, and so there you might find me: wearing orange when everyone else is in blue or black.

that's me.

Fave music: Music eats up a lot of my life, and I'm not talking about rock, rap, punk or any of the other "hard core" kinds of music people obsess over and think their feelings are more real because their tastes are "different". I've got news for those people, especially those who don't read music, the guitar playing, tuque wearing wannabes I see all over my highschool hallways: You're just part of a fad now, good job! When I say music, I talk about Baroque, Bach, Vivaldi, Italien Opera, Aria's that are sung by Castrati with names ending in "O"s and prima donnas that your not sure are even women, Massive choirs and full symphony and philharmonic orchestras, piano trios, brass quintets, concertos by other famous dead guys. Throw in a little Euro tech to mix it up every once in while and you've very nearly got my CD collection. Add in every movie soundtrack that I've ever liked, music you can really sink your teeth in, not cluttered with "meaningful" lyrics, but sounds perfected by the voice. It's all about the sound, the feel and the emotion.

tongue if I'm upset. Plus I can have a wicked temper if someone really cheeses me off.

What scares you: I have a phobia for men in dark cloaks, hense the only nightmares I ever had include "Darkness falls" toothfairy and the 9 ringwraiths coming to get me.

Quotation to live by: "Damn you for opening my eyes."
Solus... I'm eating chicken again.

Before these fields were shorn and tilled,

The fresh and boundless wood,
And torrents dashed, and rivlets played,
And fountains spouted in the shade.

I've had so many new things going on, that I think it's time for an update:

Name (that you go by): Finwë, Neeti, Kitten
Age: 16
Occupation: full-time student
Future Aspirations: become a child/adolescent psychiatrist, Tolkienologist, and an award-winning archer
Goal in life: to show the rest of the world that I'm just as good as them, if not better
Short term goals: win my next archery tournament (or at least get second place)
Passion: Archery, Writing, Middle-earth
Hobbies: Reading, Writing, Archery, Weapons, Fantasy, Archaeology, Medieval Esoterica, and Historical Fiction
Famous for (okay this is where you get to brag about yourself): inspiring poetry, being rather strong (for a girl, that is), being an arcer, being able to write extremely good essays in fifteen minutes, being able to talk my way out of anything

Fave book(s): LOTR, The Dark Is Rising, The Belgariad, anything by Judith Tarr
Fave movie: RotK, The Passion, Pirates of the Caribbean, Braveheart, Dogma, The Scorpion King, The 13th Warrior
Fave sport: Archery
Fave store: Barnes and Noble, Hot Topic
Fave music: Soundtracks to LotR

What you can't stand: Bullying, Bigotry, not being able to accept that you're wrong and that someone else is right
What you plain dislike: see above
Who you admire: Alexander the Great, Caesar, Attila the Hun, Fëanor, Galadriel, Aragorn
What you most love to do: read, practice archery, write poetry,
Your self-confessed flaws: arrogance, stubbornness, a tendency to take things seriously, an intense dislike of defeat (I can't stand to lose anything, even a game)
What intrigues/fascinates you: the human psyche (especially the minds of people like Alexander and Caesar), ancient history, weapons
What scares you: to be honest, not really anything. I'm not emotionally attached to much in this life. I'm not afraid of death any more, thanks to this Viking prayer that I found in The 13th Warrior and thanks to Lord of the Rings
Quotation to live by: "Lo, there do I see my father. Lo, there do I see my mother and my sisters and my brothers. Lo, there do I see the line of my people, back to the beginning. Lo, they do call to me. They bid me take my place among them. In the Halls of Valhalla, where the brave may live, forever."

Additional comments: No one should be afraid of death. A heroic death is the climax of a heroic life. A goal worth working towards.
But Melkor also was there, and he came to the house of Fëanor, and there he slew Finwë King of the Noldor before his doors, and spilled the first blood in the Blessed Realm; for Finwë alone had not fled from the horror of the Dark.

About time that this got updated. I’m going to have to find my older posts, since I think I made a dogs dinner of this one.

Name (that you go by): Varda, Lindsay, Lindz
Age: 17
Occupation: full-time student/”catering assistant” as Tesco kindly dubs me.
Future Aspirations: Oh, blah. *tries to think of a few*
Goal in life: Must I have a goal? I’m just a drifter at heart…oh well, I suppose it would be to be happy, and all that stuff.
Short term goals: Survive the last six weeks of secondary school without too many hangovers from endless parties/rollickings from teachers/going to too many classes. Pass Advanced Higher English. Convince Dad to fork out the money for me going to Edinburgh for uni. That’ll do for now.
Hobbies: Reading, writing, singing, chatting, seeing my friends.
Famous for (okay this is where you get to brag about yourself): Am I famous for anything…? Fine then, my ability to skip numerous classes and go to Italian only once out of six classes every week, without ever getting pulled up about it.
Fave book(s): LOTR, Sil, His Dark Materials, Chronicles of Narnia. I love loads others, but I’ll always love those ones.

What you plain dislike: As above.
Who you admire: *frowns* I don’t really do admiration or idolising that much, I don’t think. At least, no one instantly springs to mind.
What you most love to do: read, chat, listen to music
Your self-confessed flaws: I can be stubborn…(but not to the point that I can’t stand myself, can get fed up with people quite easily
What intrigues/fascinates you: These questions are hard…I find it interesting how history can be looked at from so many different viewpoints…and how twisted the truth can get over the years.
What scares you: It used to be death, but I think I’ve come to some kind of acceptance of that…so I suppose it’s spiders.
Quotation to live by: I think I have too many quotations to dig through and find an appropriate one. If you desperately need a Varda quote, consult Gayahithwen.
Additional comments: Live life as you actually want to live it…don’t listen to your parents.

Quotations to live by:

  • I'm trying to live a normal life, which is always hard given what I do.
  • Early to bed, early to rise, makes a man healthy, but socially dead.
  • Early to bed, early to rise - might as well be dead.
  • Patience is not only a virtue - it's a job description.

  • Must...have...personal space...


Additional comments: This is an almost-ripoff of my profile on my homepage, but who cares?

Oh, and if anyone is interested, my Minesweeper records are:
Beginner: 9 seconds.

Well, the chances of my piece getting read is damn low in this chaos of replies, but I will still try.

My real name is William and I am a 14 year old schoolboy. I know I gotta be a fiction writer. I just wanna be one - even though thousands of other boys and girls also do and never make it. Yeah, maybe my love for reading and writing is escapism, but who cares? I just luv it!!

I luv playin soccer, adventuring, play acting, play script writing, hanging around with my friends and talk nonsense, reading & writing esp. fantasy, talk about the book I've read, tell stories I've written, listening to music esp. hip hop & rap & R&B, singing and rapping nonsense, and acting cool to get out of awkward situation.

"Still far away, forty miles at least,
they saw Mount Doom, its feet
founded in ashen ruin, its huge cone
rising to a great height, where its reeking head was swathed in cloud."

Question Heren-ing this thread . . .

Name (that you go by):
  • Birth Name: Louis Allen Ortal
  • Elven Name: Elenrod Felagund
  • BD Handle: Nilpaurion Felagund
Age: 18 . . . if you’re lucky you’ll make it just in time to see me arrested as an adult.

For espionage. Doesn’t that carry the death penalty?

Occupation: Freelance foreign policy analyst and sole employee of Wacky Entertainment Studios (I do writing and cartooning and programming and more writing . . . hey, how come I still have no profit?)

Being a student is no longer an occupation. It’s such a burden.

It wouldn’t be much of one if you study every now and then . . .

But when will I write?

Future Aspirations: To finish my novels. All of them.

Goal in life: To be a better Christian, which includes being a good child, a good friend, and a good neighbour. Which I currently am not.

Short term goals: To get that degree in German and Russian, and to collect enough Lego to build enough ships to rival the US Navy.

Hobbies: In no particular order: loafing, reading, writing, watching TV, Downing, analysing foreign policy and playing Lego.

Famous for (okay this is where you get to brag about yourself): Being quoted once in a while on national FM radio stations, almost making it to the finals of a televised quiz show, appearing on national TV six times for said quiz show, and being the only son of Finrod. Mom and her Vanyar friends spoil me.


Fave book: Still . . .
  1. All Sherlock Holmes story by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
  2. The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexander Dumas.
  3. All tales of Middle-earth by J.R.R. Tolkien.
  4. All Jack Ryan stories, Red Storm Rising, and the Op-Center series by Tom Clancy.
  5. The works of Philip Yancey.
  6. The Little Prince by A.S. Exupery.
I also read comics, particularly enjoying Calvin and Hobbes and Archie comics.

Fave movie: Let's see . . . The best trilogy ever--I hope you all know which is that, all Star Wars, The Matrix--only, Lilo and Stitch, The Hunt for Red October, The Sum of All Fears, Independence Day, The Rock, Armageddon, Men in Black--both, Anger Management, The Mummy, The Mummy Returns, Wild Wild West, and Kate and Leopold.

Fave sport: These are the sports I play and/or watch. Favourite teams in parentheses.

Association Football (Real Madrid, until Zidane retires or switches teams, and Arsenal. Deutschland for Euro and World Cup), Basketball (San Antonio Spurs, although I did root for the Lithuanians during the 2004 Olympics), Chess, Scrabble, Fencing (even though I still haven’t won), and Archery.

Fave store: National Bookstore (for various needs, not only books), Book Sale (for really cheap books), and Gift Gate (the only halfway decent shop that sells Lego in this country).

Fave music: I’ve decided to list twenty of my most loved songs. Here goes (in no particular order) . . .
  • Iris by Goo Goo Dolls
  • What Can I Do by The Corrs
  • Brick by Ben Folds 5
  • If You’re Gone by Matchbox 20
  • Time Stands Still by The All-American Rejects
  • If I Am by Nine Days
  • Come Around by Rhett Miller
  • In My Place by Coldplay
  • Sick Cycle Carousel by Lifehouse
  • All You Wanted by Michelle Branch
  • Loneliest Person by Splender
  • Toxicity!!! by System of a Down
  • The Freshmen by Verve Pipe
  • Stay by Lisa Loeb
  • Semi Charmed Life by Third Eye Blind
  • Misery by The Moffats
  • Crave by Marc Dorsey
  • Best I Ever Had by Vertical Horizon
  • A Thousand Miles by Vanessa Carlton
  • Everybody's Changing by Keane

What you can't stand: Backstabbing "friends", smokers who care not where they spout their smoke, and the fact that I am both lazy and a perfectionist - as if being a perfectionist isn’t hard enough . . .

What you plain dislike: Mass transportation (must . . . have . . . personal space . . . ) and polar co-ordinates. Oh, and vector-valued functions . . . you pretty much get the picture.

Who you admire: Still Jesus Christ . . . still the only perfect person . . . and he still isn't a perfectionist. Else I would have long burned in perdition.

What you most love to do: I guess my hobbies.

Your self-confessed flaws: I am a procrastinator, a liar, a loudmouth, a perfectionist (which gets in the way of many things), and a sloth.

What intrigues/fascinates you: Many things I do not know. One time I read the Encyclopædia Britannica article on Metaphysics just because.

What scares you: Seeing myself a few years from now. I hope I’m just being paranoid. Oh, and centipedes.

Quotation to live by:
  • Therefore, get rid of all moral filth and the evil that is so prevalent and humbly accept the word planted in you, which can save you. [James 1:21]
  • I'm trying to live a normal life, which is always hard given what I am.
  • Early to bed, early to rise--can anyone do that and not go crazy?
  • Patience is not only a virtue--it's a job description.

Additional comments: Adam is one of my alter-egos. He tried to kill me back in high school, but I made him realise killing me would kill him too. Now he torments my life.

Alice is another of my alter-ego. She rarely appears on this forum, although if you see one sentence in italics after another, one of them is bound to be her. Or if you see any writing in italics that doesn't disparage me.

Lhunardawen has been trapped in the Barrow!
Silmaril Did this more than a year ago...high time for a new one.

Name (that you go by): Abby; Lhunardawen and its derivatives to BDers; Mel to Nilp, my junior year English teacher, and senior year Econ teacher

Age: turned 16 just 4 days ago!!! or some thousand years (I was born in the Year of Lamentation, First Age 473)

Occupation: BDer, part-time striving soon-to-be college student, full-time striving Christian

Future Aspirations: receive my inheritance and live eternally!

Goal in life: to put a smile on His face

Short-term goals: (in chronological order) live through the nightmares of my birthday, survive the even worse horrors of the upcoming prom, become a Ghost Prince(ss) on or before my second deathday, graduate from high school with honors (requires an average of at least 1.500...guess I have to pass Physics and Calculus first), get into the only university I applied for and once again be Nilp's schoolmate

Hobbies: reading anything worth reading, thinking about nothing in particular until I confuse myself with so much thoughts, scribbling furiously in my notebook, crawling on the floor laughing guts out and having a heart attack (or COFLGOHAHA), cuddling my stuffed harp seal Patty and my stuffed iridescent bunny Squishy (with the participation of Nilp, who creates the sounds), gathering weird stares (only when I'm with Nilp), Downs-ing

Famous for (okay this is where you get to brag about yourself): baffling a few BDers with the man behind the *sheepish grin*, too much Aragorn-swooning in the CbC threads...soon to be transferred to Faramir *evil laughter*

Fave books: Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth (the manual of life and the greatest love story of all), Tolkien's works on Middle Earth, books by Joshua Harris and Barbara Johnson, Tom Clancy's Op-Center (his only book I've read so far...thanks once again to Nilp), the Artemis Fowl series by Eoin Colfer, The Little Prince by A. S. Exupery, ..., and my Biology textbook. Believe it or not. I also looove Calvin and Hobbes. Witty little Hobbes looks a lot like my stuffed tiger.

Fave movies: LotR, The Matrix, Lilo & Stitch, Finding Nemo, Shrek 1 & 2, Kate and Leopold, Anger Management, the Star Wars series, 50 First Dates...

Fave sports: It depends. If I'm playing: volleyball, badminton, softball (I love playing catcher), and table tennis (this one's actually quite addictive). If I'm merely a spectator: still volleyball, gymnastics (though I wish I weren't merely a spectator ), and synchronized swimming (how they do this is still beyond me).

Fave stores: National Bookstore for school supplies, Powerbooks (because I get to sit comfortably while reading a book...and yes, this is a store.), Blue Magic (where I get to cuddle and converse with more stuffed toys, provided I don't get kicked out of the store), Gift Gate (and watch Nilp build a T4 bacteriophage out of Lego), Watson's (where I can be all girly...somehow)

Fave music: Contemporary Christian, anytime! And those recommended by my auditory nerves.

What you can't stand: flying cockroaches, high-pitched scratching sounds, cigarette smoke, car fresheners and other nausea-inducing odors

What you plain dislike: having to endure endless teasing, senseless teachers, being left out

Who you admire: Jesus Christ (who still deserves so much more than my admiration), my parents, some BDers (the mods, Nil, Helen, HI, Finwe, and symestreem, to name a few)

What you most love to do: my hobbies, debating with teachers to get extra points in tests *evil grin*. Respectfully, of course (or at least I try). *more evil grin*

Your self-confessed flaws: procrastination, cramming, lack of self-confidence, and the thing HerenIstarion once ranted about here

What intrigues/fascinates you: Genetics, Biotechnology, Astronomy, Dave Marley

What scares you: the unknown

Quotation to live by:

Additional comment: I wonder how many times I've mentioned the Scion of The Faithful in this post...
