as others have said, writing fan fiction has influenced me

I just wrote a few pieces, mostly to fill in the blanks (Frodo greets Sam in Valinor; Gimli and Legolas arrive in Valinor but of course only Gandalf/Olorin, Elrond, and Galadriel are there anymore; Arwen's death/reunion with Aragorn, etc.). I also wrote a piece making the argument that Radagast stayed on in Middle-earth and eventually became the wizard we call Merlin - the T.H. White version, with all the shapeshifting and animals - partly in atonement for not taking a more active role against Sauron. In my version Nimue was really Varda come to take Radagast home. Can't find it now, alas. I like my additions.

Otherwise it's all the books. I can't think of a Jackson addition that I liked. I started reading LOTR in the 60s and re-read it many times and pretty much took the films as the same story told from a different angle, but not the angle I prefer. (I was not nearly as into "The Hobbit," but I HATED those films. Jackson went right off the rails with them, and not in a good way. His need to amp up the tension in every possible moment backfired big-time for me.)

I am a dreamer of words, of written words.
