hellooo [In reply to] Can't Post

Hello I'm RedHatGirl and I'm 16 years old. I found out about TORn at the Tolkien track for dragoncon. In fact you might have seen me on the live stream wearing my red hat (Gandalf did give me my phone back and he's my dad so it's not to wierd.) Well anyways I've been a lifelong lotr fan and so yeah hi!

Hi! ^_^ [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm Beth, known online in many, many guises, but I've been Faev since 2011 in LOTRO, so I decided to keep the identity here ^_^

My route to TORn is a bit roundabout: I was utterly unable to finish LOTR in high school (pleasedon'thurtme!) and it wasn't until after the films came out that I was able to get back into it. I started playing Lord of the Rings Online a couple years ago, and it actually got me a lot more interested in the background of Middle Earth. So I finally finished reading LOTR about a year ago, and now I'm reading through The Silmarillion!

About myself: I'm American, educated in Scotland, now living in Iceland; I used to live in Atlanta, GA, but we do not speak of such things. I share a high-rise apartment overlooking the view of Snæfellsjökull to the north with my boyfriend and two manic cats. I used to do mediaeval reenactment with a company in Scotland, and I still have my swords! I like to tell people I'm a professional geek :3

A couple of you miiiiight remember me from here. I have a black mohawk, these days. This is me at work.

*gasp* Unable to finish LoTR? [In reply to] Can't Post

That was an impressive outfit - Danish, was it? Hey, did you pack it, or is it still in my basement?

(Yeah, you've got a lot of stuff to go through, next time you're home! Laugh)

Welcome to TORn, my eldest! Smile Any problems, just contact your friendly Admins (Angelic).

Hi Faeverith, don't worry [In reply to] Can't Post

I couldn't finish LOTR the first time I read it either, and didn't actually finish until I re-read them after the movies came out. So you're not the only one!

And don't worry, I've been to Atlanta (in July no less), so we need not speak of it. Tongue

Welcome to TORn!

Such an old drawing... [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm just fond of the Gaia chibis. So cute!

Also, the dress was Viking, and I brought it with me. But yes, I need to retrieve the rest of my stuff from your basement. I need my comic books!

(May need to leave the swords with you, though, the Ielandic government is quite restrictive about such things.)

Welcome, and well-re-met! [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm in that first picture in the pink jacket.

Remember the fabulous glass blower that made a drinking horn in your honor, at least partly because you had the first authentic costume he'd seen that day (or in years, possibly!)?

Roam around and enjoy yourself!

Maybe you can stage a re-enactment seminar in our new city-state of Tolkienia! ( http://newboards.theonering.net/forum/gforum/perl/gforum.cgi?post=645401#64540 )

Hello [In reply to] Can't Post

Hello, I'm Kalimac, or Kali. I find languages very interesting, and that's what got me hooked on Tolkien. (That, and a certain hobbit named Peregrin Took.) I've read The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, and the Silmarillion (but I always get tongue tied and talk about the silmalirion). I signed up to TORn so I wouldn't need to bother the people I knew in real life with my thoughts on Tolkien anymore.
It's a pleasure to make your collective acquaintances.

Well re-met, indeed! [In reply to] Can't Post

I do remember! If I'd had the money I would totally have taken that drinking horn home, because it was a fantastic creation.

I'd be happy to do that at some point, although most of my resources are still in a box in Dernwyn's basement ^_^

A triumphant return to an important world [In reply to] Can't Post

Greetings, humans, hobbits, elves, wizards, dwarves, and other creatures.

I'm a 22 year old U.S. college student on the path to becoming a teacher.

I have been somewhat aware of TORn since I was in middle school. Having read the Hobbit in elementary school, I convinced my mother to take me to see the Fellowship film when it arrived in theaters (I was in fifth grade). It absolutely blew my mind. After that, I read the trilogy as quickly as I could and became captivated with the books/films, seeking any internet resources which could satiate my desire for more information. In 2006 I had the chance to briefly visit New Zealand, and I long to return someday. Various life adventures and pitfalls occurred since then, and I didn't keep up with developments much. Of course, I then saw AUJ last winter and was filled with childlike glee.

Anyway, my brain craves a return to all things Tolkien so I've joined the forums here! *takes a deep breath and puts out a plate of crazy awesome biscuits*

Welcome Wayward! [In reply to] Can't Post

I followed the same course you did, starting with reading The Hobbit' in school. It wasn't until I saw FOTR that my obsession really kicked in and I've been a 'Ringer' ever since. Cool

If you go to the main forums menu and click into the category you think your thread is relevant to, eg Reading Room or Movie Discussion etc, you will see a 'Post New' button on the right hand side of your screen above the threads. Clicking on that will let you start your own thread. Wink

I hope that helps. Smile

Hello. Just joined TORN. [In reply to] Can't Post

I look forward to knowing more of you folks. Smile

To sum up my views on the first Hobbit film:

- It's not the Phantom Menace.
- The CGI is worse than LOTR
- Is it Freeman playing Bilbo or the other way round?
- Best villain - Goblin King
- Re: Bestest villain - Gollum
- Thorin is good but Bofur's the best!
- Too much attention on Armitage. Must rectify in DOS
- Azog is a weird heterogenous mixture of General Mandible and old Voldy. (which is bad)
- How many times will SIM have to play Gandalf to win an Oscar????
- I'm a Serkis-freak
- Freeman = Best hobbit till date
- Will I watch DOS? Are you outta yer freakin' mind!!!! Sure I would.
