Positions everyone! I trust you've all brought along cake, streamers, banners, party blowers, drinks and confetti?



And don't forget the 10000 bumps the new user will receive. Wink

WooHoo! We will be 10,000 strong....! [In reply to] Can't Post

But I think we are a bit better behaved than those Uruk Hai.

Usually.

Is there a Tolkien topic that you have wanted to look into more deeply, and write about your thoughts on it? If so, we'd like to hear from you for the next TORn Amateur Symposium- coming in November. Happy writing!

That makes me suspicious. Is there an orc waiting to jump out of the cake?

Don't be silly. [In reply to] Can't Post

I've done nothing. WinkI just yabber on about clouds and the talking purse!

But I'm glad 9999 people agree with me - this is an amazing forum to be part. Both to socialise, talk about Tolkien, discuss the intricacies of the films, and just have fun. You're all brilliant. Smile

I suppose someone should cut Ethel's cake. You might have to bake a bigger one though Ethel. I'm rather hungry, and I'm not sure there will be a slice for everyone.

We should have hired Gandalf for fireworks for the event!

Oooh! Aaaah! [In reply to] Can't Post

You know, that last one is one of my favorite effects shots in all of the trilogy, relatively simple as it is. I just love the way they depicted Gandalf's fireworks, especially the one that went up with a shout and came hissing down over The Water like spears. It was one of those magic moments sitting in the theater where I was transported to the Middle-earth of my imagination and it was just so perfect. Heart
