I posted one! : [In reply to] Can't Post

Thank you, dernwyn! I just did a post in the fan art section with plenty of links. I hope I didn't make it sound too exciting -- I have a lot of things planned, and not as many things finished. The "blending" thing I explain a little better there hopefully. It just seems to be how I'm approaching drawing using Richard as Thorin so far. Once I do "from the book" art, I'd be trying to work as much as possible from what I'm reading (I'm trying not to look at other artists while I'm reading The Silmarillion so I don't accidentally "see" things the way they read it). All art on my dA currently is The Hobbit only. I'm so far behind, and working so slowly these days... I'll get there though! :D

Hi :-) [In reply to] Can't Post

How're you guys doing, my name's Richard (or Oakensword as my imagination spat out). I've been a big Tolkien fan since I saw PJ's Fellowship in 2001 (that old chestnut) but I never really thought to go on forums at the time. I figured I should before the last of BOTFA comes and goes but I'm hoping to stick around for longer. Wink
I've seen your guys' forums through search engines and the likes; all.roads I go down seem to lead here so I figured this is where I ought to be. Smile
See you guys shortly! Laugh

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

Hello :) [In reply to] Can't Post

Hi everyone! I am a long time lurker and first time joiner haha

My name is Nicole, I'm from Nova Scotia, Canada and I am 29 years old.

I've been a fan of Tolkien since high school, the Fellowship of the Ring film being my introduction. I was smitten. I've watched the films more times then I can count, and have re-read the Lord of the Rings until they are falling apart. I also just re-read the Hobbit, am reading LotR currently, and plan on reading on through all the other Middle Earth books I haven't read yet.

I look forward to getting to know you all :)

Welcome to official membership! [In reply to] Can't Post

Since you've lurked for a while, you probably can tell that almost anything goes here... and do check out the Welcome section to learn what doesn't.
We have a lot of fun on and off topic.

What part of Nova Scotia are you from? I'm living in south Texas and would love to visit Wink

See you around!

Greetings [In reply to] Can't Post

Hi everybody,
Adam from Poland here, I hope to spend some good times here.
I fell in love with Middle-Earth in my early teens, taking a rather unusual route and starting with Silmarillion. Tolkien had a great impact on me, I took interest in languages and old literature. Although I've started with fantasy, today I'd read anything from Lovecraft to Orwell.
Have a good day :)

Not sure how this works but will give it a go! [In reply to] Can't Post

Hi Everyone,

My name is Adam from Cheshire in the UK. I have been viewing the boards for a little while and thought I should join.

Particularly enjoyed the Reading Room discussions about the read-through as I am more a book-verse than a movie-verse fan, not to say I didn't enjoy the movies of course.

I look forward to hopefully being an active member of your community and engaging in some sensible if not lively debate concerning all things Tolkien and perhaps other things besides. Smile

******************************************
The audacious proposal stirred his heart. And the stirring became a song, and it mingled with the songs of Gil-galad and Celebrian, and with those of Feanor and Fingon. The song-weaving created a larger song, and then another, until suddenly it was as if a long forgotten memory woke and for one breathtaking moment the Music of the Ainur revealed itself in all glory. He opened his lips to sing and share this song. Then he realized that the others would not understand. Not even Mithrandir given his current state of mind. So he smiled and simply said "A diversion.

Am I doing this right? [In reply to] Can't Post

Hello all. My name is Chris. I am 42 years old and I live in Georgetown, KY, USA. I have been married for 17+ years, and I'm a father of 3 sons - 10, 6, and 2. I am a life-long Tolkien and Star Wars fan.

Question - Is the way to post always using the "Reply tab", or is there a "Post" tab?

You're doing fine... [In reply to] Can't Post

Hey there!

You can use Post New, but that starts a new, original thread. From an existing thread you can only "Reply To This Post" or use "Quote" which begins your reply by including the text of the post to which you're responding.

Or you can go to "Your Mesgs" at the top of the page to send a Private Message (PM).
