it seems to be Speak Out STV Week, which is fantastic!
Welcome to you and all!
I remember when I found the very first TA thread (it had only been going for a few pages) I dived straight in, because it was just what I had been looking for (trawling through the discussions to find anything and everything devoted to Thranduil.) I have very good memories of closely participating on TORn back around the release of ROTK and for a couple of years after, and I'd been missing those days.
But I did feel I had nothing much to contribute beyond general squeeing - not being terribly academically minded, I felt so under-read and uneducated on Tolkien, compared with so many of the fine folk here, and I've shown myself up plenty of times with my comparative ignorance. But I guess after a while, I felt more confident in taking part. It's been a wonderful ride.
