I am loving this thread (my new home)

Oh thank you SO much for making this thread! I am actually de-lurking (like a few others) to say this, and would love to be added to Thranduil's Thralls :)

Not a newbie actually. I registered with TORn years ago, was pretty active here around the LOTR releases, but have just been here briefly of late. Reading, not saying much. Hoping for some kind of thread like this. I remember the old-style forum with popular threads like 'Estrogen Island', where a mature fangirl like me could swap pics in an environment where other peeps 'get' you.

When I first saw Thranduil's eyes in the DoS trailer, I had my own little Figwit - or rather Bigwit - moment (Bilbo is great - WHO is THAT??!!)
Coz yeah, I barely remembered Thranduil's very brief appearance in AUJ. I know, right? How could I not?? Probably I was too busy checking Bilbo for Tookishness. Pippin was my favourite LOTR character and I was more into hobbits in general. Never much of an Elf fancier, apart from a brief girl-crush on Arwen.
That has all changed.

So Lee Pace. Amazing. Stunning. I hadn't seen any of his back catalogue - I don't know if Pushing Daisies ever played in Australia - but you can bet I got hold of it quick smart and am currently enjoying. I can see how Lee's often worried expression as Ned translates beautifully to Thranduil's hurt/wounded look with extra intensity. I could hang that on my wall.

Anyway suddenly my interest in the entire elven race has picked up - funny that. I haven't done a lot of the reading that many of you have, but I think I could probably push on through the Sil now (I only made it halfway, several years ago)

Some beautiful pics here, and amazing links to wonderful fan art. Let's keep this thread alive.

I wish I was better at drawing. I love the little 'behind the scenes' bit here from 7:00 to 7:41 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IcIN15WqeRE
including the jacuzzi jokes. It gives me an idea for some fan art....

'O' is very useful. You use it when you say... "Oscar's only ostrich oiled an orange owl today."
