Hi Dormouse [In reply to] Can't Post

Sorry I didn't reply before- I've had a long day at work and I don't get time to look at nonwork things at all whilst there. This sounds a great idea. DOn't worry if you don't get time to submit it this time, since we are aiming to have another one in the autumn. To be honest, I'm not 100% I'm going to complete mine- but guess I'd better be a good exampleAngelic Anyway, whenever you submit it, it'll be intersting to read your ideas. Thanks

Hi Maciliel [In reply to] Can't Post

Sorry didn't get back to you before- tied up at work all day. However, I see Daniel has responded and basically said what I would have said- there is no fundamental difference, it's just a case of an opportunity for people to submit posts/essays on things which are a bit more left field I guess. If this works out, we may be able to develop things further- watch this space!Laugh

aka. fili orc-enshield
+++++++++++++++++++
the scene, as i understand it, is exceptionally well-written. fili (in sort of a callback to the scene with the eagles), calls out "thorRIIIIIIN!!!" just as he sees the pale orc veer in for the kill. he picks up the severed arm of an orc which is lying on the ground, swings it up in desperation, effectively blocking the pale orc's blow. and thus, forever after, fili is known as "fili orc-enshield."

this earns him deep respect from his hard-to-please uncle. as well as a hug. kili wipes his boots on the pale orc's glory box. -- maciliel telpemairo

Ha ha! [In reply to] Can't Post

This sounds like an essay title I made up when trying to illustrate the less academic end of the scale we expected- "Why I think Thorin is a good bloke" - Actually, the Idril one sounds far more intellectual on second thoughts !Wink

I thought I was writing that Thorin-is-the-best-bloke piece...Wink

Excited about the range of topics we are seeing!

Fantastic! :D [In reply to] Can't Post

I can't contribute until later in the year... and hopefully no RL intrusions will keep me tied up even then. I'm thinking because I do so much with the timeline of the Quests of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, I'd like to do something that examines those timelines and how the Quests evolved through events and the participants.

We'd love to read about that Gramma! [In reply to] Can't Post

No worries, we will be hosting another Symposium in late fall, so hopefully that pesky real-life will give you some free time! Wink Excited to heat that you are thinking about submitting! Hooray!
