AUJ Character of the Week (COTW) Sign-up for October & November Can't Post

I have already open first Character of the Week (CHOW) discussion on characters from The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, but it would be much more fun if each member takes one character and start new thread with him each weak (best on Weekends that means during Friday and Sunday). Like in Chapter of the Week thread we will need eight volunteers for each week in October and November.

1. Weekend of October 5th - Thorin Oakenshield - Old Pilgrim

1. Weekend of October 11th - Bilbo Baggins - Kim
2. Weekend of October 18th - Balin - MatthewJer18
3. Weekend of October 25th - Elrond or Galadriel* - Erewen
4. Weekend of November 1th - Fili or Kili* - Kili Wink
5. Weekend of November 8th - Gandalf the Grey - The Tenth Walker
6. Weekend of November 15th - Azog the Defiler or the Great Goblin* - thorinoakenshield
7. Weekend of November 22th - Radagast the Brown or Saruman the White* - Peterthorn of Rohan

8. Weeking of November 29th - One of the Dwarves (except Thorin, Balin, Fili or Kili )* - Queen of Erebor

* Here you can choose one character between two or more of them

Whoever is interested can choose his character on a first-come-first-serve basic, so you should hurry up if you want to host a partical character. Respond to this thread with which character you would like to host. In the future we will be asking for more volunteers for both new character in Desolation of Smaug and those that already appeared in An Unexpected Journey.

This is a open discussion but there are some suggestions which you could use when creating a new discussion thread:

- Character development through the movie
- Most memorable moment
- What do you like about him and what you don't like
- His relationship with other characters
- His appearance
- Style of fighting
- His future development
- His portrayal in the movie

Is it possible to reschedule it so not to be posted on the weekends? [In reply to] Can't Post

We originally chose to post CHOW during the weekend because it was a quiter period on the forum.

CHOW and COTW are almost identical at a glance, and when the forum gets busy, we wouldn't want them clashing.

Just an idea.

Of course it is possible [In reply to] Can't Post

and also better then having both discussions on the same days. I was first thinking to post COTW during the week but then change my mind because I thought that people have more time during the weekend. But you are right, let's try the other option and hope that people will have time;

1. Week of October 7th-11th - Bilbo Baggins - Kim
2. Week of October 14th-18th - Balin -
3. Week of October 21th-25th - Elrond or Galadriel* - Erewen
4. Week of October 28th-1th - Fili or Kili* - Kili
5. Week of November 4th-8th - Gandalf the Grey - The Tenth Walker
6. Week of November 11th-15th - Azog the Defiler or the Great Goblin* - thorinoakenshield
7. Week of November 28th-22th - Radagast the Brown or Saruman the White* -
8. Week of November 25th-29th - One of the Dwarves (except Thorin, Balin, Fili or Kili )* -


We still need 3 volunteers. I forgot to mention in my first post that you should also post a picture of your character when starting a discussion thread about him like I did with Thorin.

Then I'll take the week of November 25-29th [In reply to] Can't Post

It'll probably be either Dwalin or Bofur (probably Dwalin, since he's closer to Thorin, and thank you for starting off with my favorite character).Wink

Far over the Misty Mountains cold
To dungeons deep and caverns old
We must away, ere break of day
To find our long-forgotten gold.

Then we are full now. [In reply to] Can't Post

Nice to see that all places were filled so quickly and since I cannot edit my older posts this post should suffice.

We can make another COTW thread in December.
