re survival stories [In reply to] Can't Post

 
then you and i have something in common (finding survival stories extremely compelling). i have always found them, so -- not for any entertainment value, but because i felt they were somehow critical. i was both learning something and also opening myself up to the knowledge of the ordeal -- meaning that it was important that people not involved in the ordeal know about it, and validate that it happened.

my father loved to watch "the world at war" when i was a kid. it was very informative and well-done, but i found it extremely oppressive.

i think right now i am extremely open to(perhaps even looking for) inspiring themes of hope and endurance. but perhaps now is not the right time for "the life of pi." i'm not sure. i will have to mull it over some more.

thanks for sharing your (great) thoughts, starling.

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
