just to add ... [In reply to] Can't Post

 
... re the uvm thread...

that thread took place over a period of time, and there were other threads, besides -- including interchanges with the instructor of the course. the reading room made many, many welcoming statements, but the students themselves did not post a lot, and i don't think the primary reason was that we did not give them space. posting frequency / interaction also depends on the individuals, and perhaps this summer's crop of individuals were just not the more active posters seen in previous years.


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 telpemairo
