Who are you calling disagreeable? Mad Well, I suppose I should thank you for linking to the nice fan art including the oh so Majestic one in this thread.

     Have not been on for a while, but I just had this feeling that I would be [In reply to]  

be looking for VIII, not VII, I was right. Just went all the way through VII, and have a few comments/questions:

Thank you, Murk, for the info on the WETA tapestry! Going to order next week. Looked into some of the maps as well (I love maps!), but they are they are a little pricey and I will have to wait on those.

Murk, what missing Stag scene? And someone posted in VII that they can't wait to see the Elfs kill it, but what the "it" was, I do not know. Are the Elfs going to kill a Stag in DOS EE or BO5A? If they are, I just hope its not a white stag!

Eruvandi: I love Virginia as well, I lived there for about 10 years, I always had a job, was never bored, and traveled throughout the state quite a bit visiting Founding Fathers houses, Civil War battlefields, etc. That began my interest in history. It is my all time favorite place I have ever lived, and I would move back there in a heartbeat. I heard that Lee Pace has a house close to Virginia Beach but I cannot confirm that.

Kinslaying, and the Nolder, yes, this makes sense. And something really bad happened between Oropher and Gil-galad, who is Galadriel's brother, and he had a strong dislike (possibly hatred) for both of them. Hopefully, will have more time for reading over these next few weeks, both UT and the Sil!.

On Thranduil's fighting Dragon's in the North, I could have sworn I read something about that a long time ago, but do not remember where. Does anyone know anything about this?

Please, call me Ve.

     LOL Kim dwarves get everywhere [In reply to]  

Behold the glory, celebrated in artwork around the globe, in all types of media. I think Lurker meant to say "most agreeable and fair of countenance is the glorious Heir of Durin, without whom Thranduil's long life is unbearably dull":



Tho I will say that artwork link was so nice, I looked it up - there's more ME stuff at the SOURCE (artist David Deb, who evidently has done some ME trading cards!!!!)
http://daviddeb.deviantart.com/art/Thorin-467258973

Well, Ok, since this IS a Thranduil TA thread, and Thranduil is a WORTHY adversary (potential friend?) of Thorin's:

Yes, that makes much more sense, especially in light of this wonderful new piece of artwork you've found - wow. And I guess those ones of Thranduil aren't too bad, if you like that sort of thing. Wink

So here goes:

Ve, I think the missing Stag scene was from what we discussed in thread VI... here? I'm not sure I know what you're referring to about the killing though. Can you provide the link to the post where it was?

btw, call me Lurker, that's what the other Thralls do Smile

And time at home was a slow enjoyable getting to grips with the Sil's Ainulindale. Wink ...and just now, trying to figure out how posting to tumblr works. I am starting to see how the tags work... (and there I was, thinking it might work like Facebook - but where's the 'comments' tag?? Laugh )

On relevance note: looking at the SDCC line-up, looks like LP is not going to be in official attendance after all, unless he is a surprise drop-in. Wasn't there a hint a few months ago that he might be there?
