maciliel answer [In reply to] Can't Post

 
"out flew a red-golden dragon -- not life-size, but terribly life-like; fire came from his jaws, his eyes glared down; there was a roar, and he whizzed three times over the heads of the crowd."

absolutely +no-one+ is going to guess +this+.

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

i stumbled over that as well [In reply to] Can't Post

 
i stumbled over that as well, magpie. i didn't quite understand what "past the 5th sentence" meant, so i counted five sentences, and posted the next one.

then i re-read the original post -- and it says "post" the 5th sentence.


cheers --

'In the House of Love'? [In reply to] Can't Post

I Googled around for it - but I have not read it.

Do I still get my 10 points? LaughWink (If that's it)

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!

"Use micropipettes to remove samples of the reaction mixture at the following times: 15, 30, 60 and 120 seconds." [In reply to] Can't Post

It was my organic chemistry lab book... If I had picked up my textbook instead, the sentence would have read: "Another way to predict acid-base reactivity is to remember that the product conjugate acid in an acid-base reaction must be weaker and less reactive than the starting acid and the product conjugate base must be weaker and less reactive than the starting base."

Ohhhhh, did you mean a book that I'm reading for fun? Crazy Ain't nobody got time for dat. Still have prelab notebook work to do... Unsure

"I had forgotten that. It is hard to be sure of anything among so many marvels. The world is all grown strange. Elf and Dwarf in company walk in our daily fields; and folk speak with the Lady of the Wood and yet live; and the Sword comes back to war that was broken in the long ages ere the fathers of our fathers rode into the Mark! How shall a man judge what to do in such times?"

"As he ever has judged. Good and ill have not changed since yesteryear; nor are they one thing among Elves and Dwarves and another among Men. It is a man's part to discern them, as much in the Golden Wood as in his own house."

Why did the sentence have to be longer then most paragraphs [In reply to] Can't Post

"But the conjunction of representations into a conception is not to be found in objects themselves, nor can it be, as it were, borrowed from them and taken up into the understanding by perception, but it is on the contrary an operation of the understanding itself, which is nothing more than the faculty on conjoining a priori, and of bringing the variety of given representations under the unity of apperception."

"In an interview, Hoffman said while the corps did not wear cadet-style uniforms anymore or have inspections, they still pressed their pants and polished their shoes." [In reply to] Can't Post

Had it been the second-closest book to hand, the sentence would have been:

"He mentioned his own 'philosophy,' i.e. the case against illustration, in a 1961 letter to Pauline Baynes, but thought that there was 'a case for illustration (or decoration!) applied to small things' (Letters 312)."

Wow! What does that mean? [In reply to] Can't Post

That's a mouthful and no mistake. Mine sounds more appetizing: "Serve in stemmed glasses with a slice of lime."


"That is one thing that Men call 'hope.' Amdir we call it, 'looking up.' But there is another which is founded deeper. Estel we call it, that is 'trust.' It is not defeated by the ways of the world, for it does not come from experience, but from our nature and First Being. If we are indeed the Eruhin, the Children of the One, then He will not suffer Himself to be deprived of His own, not by any enemy, not even by ourselves. This is the last foundation of estel, which we keep even when we contemplate the End. Of all His designs the issue must be for His children's joy."
Finrod, Athrabeth Finrod ah Andreth, HoME X Morgoth's Ring
