My name is Morgan (yes, that is my real name, and “Ly” and “Fe” are the first two letters of my middle and last name; though the resemblance it bears to Morgan Le Fay is a plus) I just joined here the other day, but I’ve been visiting on and off for the past ten years or so. My mom use to be a member, but that was ages ago and I doubt she was ever very active.
Anyway, I am, of course, a Tolkien fan. I have been practically since the day I was born, as my mother is (and always has been) a huge fan herself. I grew up watching the old cartoons (which I loved with a passion), particularly The Hobbit, and listening to my parents read me the books. I have tons of hilarious stories revolving around them as well, if anyone ever wants to hear about them. I distinctively remember a time about a year before the “real” movies came out, when we were sitting around the dinner table and I asked my mom “Hey, mommy, do you remember that movie where the scary black mean attacked the dwarves but they were really pillows?” But I wasn’t great at pronouncing dwarves, so it came out more like “Drawers.” And my mom just looked at my dad and was like “What have you been showing our kids!?” Eventually, and after a lot of confusion, we came to realize it was the lotr cartoon. That was when I was told there would be new movies, and I went back and read the books before they came out.
I love both the books and the movies, though I don’t like the Return of the King movie as much as the others. I really like to follow the story of Frodo and Sam, and I think that could have been more prominent in the movie. But that’s just my opinion.
I’m now 18 and a freshman in college, which is so weird to say :P I lucked out and got awesome suite mates who I spend the majority of time with (though they did at first call me “that weird Frodo Girl”) and it’s really a lot of fun. I haven’t decided on a major yet, but it’s between Film, Creative Writing, and Philosophy. I love reading, writing, and working on films, if that wasn’t clear enough in the last sentence.
I also liking talking to new people and making new friends, so hopefully that’ll happen here! :D
I'm going to try to attach a picture... let's see if this works, lol. It's not the best or most recent picture, but it's me. (Taken at waffle house at 2 in the morning... my room mates get hungry like hobbits!)
