Yay, here I am! And the orc in the corner is gone! Can't Post

    This is so cool! Look at all the smileys!Cool I'll go with the shades because the sun is out at last, and the sky is blue, and it's a lovely day.

Thanks so much to Altaira and Mr. Altaira and Inferno and all who labored to make this day come to pass. I'm off to explore!

Those new corner pics [In reply to] Can't Post

are a nice touch!

Oooo! Gil-galad!

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauron’s master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded b*****d with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

I got excited at the new corner pictures too! Little things like that, are just really neat.

I'm here, too! Yay! [In reply to] Can't Post

Now that I'm here, I'd like to say thanks to some people. Mainly to all the hard workers who made this all possible.

But also to Annael for her fabulous avatar. I just can't thank you enough for that, hun.

Why am I shaking? [In reply to] Can't Post

I can FINALLY write down the exact date of the first time I posted in our new home!

My Goodness, this is surreal! I checked the pictures in the corner first thing, too... and the very first one that came up was of Peter sitting in Bag End. How deliciously Perfect!

I feel like I'm in a new town and have to find my way to the store, the library, and the ice cream parlour... but it's absolutely beautiful here!

Thank you so much Altaira, Mr. Altaira, and Inferno... and everyone else who worked so hard to make this happen. That we should be growing when other sites are vanishing or diminishing is incredible!

I have to include this in my first post:

The Road goes ever on and on

Down from the door where it began.

Now far ahead the Road has gone,

And I must follow, if I can.

Pursuing it with weary feet,

Until it joins some larger way,

Where many paths and errands meet.

And wither then? I cannot say.

Still round the corner there may wait

A new road or a secret gate;

And though I oft have passed them by,

A day will come at last when I

Shall take the hidden paths that run

West of the moon, East of the Sun.

This reminds me of a story from my college days: I'm quite short, and a friend of mine (let's call her "Barb") was quite tall and would frequently comment on our height difference and pat me on the head, which I hated. I was walking to a dorm-room party with another friend and said, "Barb had better not pat me on the head!" My friend said, "If she does, just bite her in the knee!" Well, as soon as we walked in, Barb patted me on the head, and my other friend shouted, "Bite her in the knee!" That got everyone's attention!

Too funny!

I always think of the black knight (secretly) when I read my little 'kneecaps' line. Wink

Hey, Ainu Laire! [In reply to] Can't Post

I just wanted to let you know that I'm enjoying your avatar! Did you make that? I know it's your artwork (of course), but did you make the icon? Very cute!

Re: [LiJuun] [In reply to] Can't Post

Sadly, the icon was not made by me. It is one of the 100s of icons I have found on LJ. I have made icons before, but they are sorely lacking in prettiness. And it fit with my banner, so I chose it *g*

Dude, they're right next to each other and I thought the icon was of your art! I just looked a little more closely and, yes, I see it now. They're slightly different.

I like the texture of yours better.
