Hi, I'm new! Can't Post

My name is Rachel. I'm a fan of The Lord of the Rings movies and the Chronicles of Narnia movies. I like to read and draw in my spare time.

Hi, Rachel! [In reply to] Can't Post

I love the Chronicles of Narnia! Have you read the books? They're so much better than the movies. I grew up with them, and still adore them to this day.

And, of course, I love Lord of the Rings. Otherwise I wouldn't be here Smile

it is bitter to receive." -Arwen Undómiel

One by one they faded, and fell into shadow...

One book to rule them all
One book to find them
One book to bring them all
And in TORn bind them
In the land of TORnadoes...where the brilliant play

It's absolutely wonderful that there are so many new fans out there. I think you'll enjoy your stay! Smile

Hi, Rachel! [In reply to] Can't Post

And welcome to TORn!

I've moved this thread over to Off-topic, but don't worry, I've left a "pointer" for it on Main. Smile

Did you know, you live in a state that has a lot of other TORnfolks? (And they do like to get together, when they can!)

And you'll find lots of C.S. Lewis fans here, too! Heart

cheers --

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
