Thank you, everyone! [In reply to] Can't Post

It's cool to have so many people respond to my first forum post ever! I've liked the responses I've gotten so far, and so I'll go into a bit more detail.

There are probably a lot of differences between my ideas and the things that have been leaked about the movie so far, simply because I have been trying very hard (with varying degrees of success) to not pay attention to those things. I was pretty young when I saw The Lord of the Rings and knew nothing about them, not reading the books until the week after ROTK came out. I've been trying to redo that.

Some of the ideas were inspired by the 2003 Hobbit video game that I loved when it came out. That is where things like "Tauriel helping Bilbo free the Dwarves" came from, because when she was first announced that was the first thing I thought of.

Also, it has been a long time since I read the book, so the whole "raven instead of thrush" thing is more of a typo than me trying to change anything. Azog having superiors at Mount Gundabad was something I thought of to justify him not marching to Erebor right away, though I'm sure there are other ways to deal with that. Smaug falling into the pool in the middle of Lake-Town seemed like a neat image, and I always pictured that pool being big (and technically it is in the lake as written).

Also, any timeline problems with the Battle of Dol Guldur is mostly accidental. Looking at things, it just seemed to make sense narratively, plus I liked the idea of the Necromancer sensing something (which fans know is the Ring, but maybe others don't) and sending people after him. Plus, in the earlier trilogy, didn't Peter Jackson change the timeline of things to? I seem to remember the timeline in the Appendicies saying that the Battle of Helm's Deep happened at the same time as Frodo, Sam, and Gollum at the Black Gate?

Again, thanks for all the responses!
