no pressure or anything [In reply to] Can't Post

Hey all!

I'm Tigatag (after a bit in the Fellowship cast commentary), but some of you may know of me already as Dame Ioreth's eldest daughter. I live with my sister and a small, ridiculous cat. Mum and Dad got me into the series when I was a kid, and it's never really left. I'm still the family's reigning LotR trivial pursuit champion.

I'm twenty-four, I work as a designer, and I think half of my possessions are books by now. I like death's head moths. I read and watch a lot of horror and thrillers. I dislike unnecessary romantic subplots, but was okay with Kili and Tauriel. I like women's hockey.

Elrond is my favorite character, but I'd like to party with Merry and Pippin.

I've been told (by mum) that some of y'all had heard about my tattoo (which I got at the same time she got hers) and some of y'all wanted to see it, so that's attached (I think). It's a direct transcription of "not all those who wander are lost".

Glad you've chosen to join us. Sounds like you'll fit in great around here. Cool


Roads go ever ever on
Under cloud and under star
Yet feet that wandering have gone
Turn at last to home afar.
Eyes that fire and sword have seen
And horror in the halls of stone
Look at last on meadows green
And trees and hills they long have known.

Glad to see DI's next generation joining TORn! I myself am a LOTR trivia champion, so we may need to have a challenge at some point. Wink

Hey! Hi! [In reply to] Can't Post

I understand you work in a rare book store - that is an awesome (literally) job. Cool Welcome to TORn!

That tattoo is sort of like a Tengwar bracelet! (Here's a bit more of it, which your Mom posted: http://newboards.theonering.net/...rum.cgi?post=866989;.)

So...what are your plans for challenging the Reading Room regulars to LotR trivial pursuit? Angelic

that would be it [In reply to] Can't Post

I thought there were some better photos floating around!

Yes, I work for a rare book store. We specialize in crime fiction and film, but I've been fortunate enough to handle some truly fascinating rare materials. (No interesting Tolkien related material yet; "so I can hold it" isn't a good enough reason for us to buy stock outside of our area of expertise)

First order of business would be to review, that's for sure! I'm still good on the films, but haven't had time for an in depth re-read in years. It might be color coded sticky note time Wink

Hi there! [In reply to] Can't Post

And welcome! Smile

Every time DI mentions the bookstore, I get really jealous--that's doubly so now that you've said it sells film books too. Shocked I'm hooked, please tell me more!

weelllll.... [In reply to] Can't Post

"Bookstore" is kind of a misnomer at this point. A few years ago, my boss decided to sell scripts and other film ephemera in addition to first editions. It's interesting if you really know your movies. Over the years I've handled scripts for Empire Strikes Back, Arsenic and Old Lace, the series finale for M*A*S*H, to name a few interesting ones. Vincent Price took a lot of margin notes.

Everyone that works there is a film nerd, all with different preferences. And they'll go out of their way to make sure a co-worker gets to hold something from their favorite film. It's a good place to work,

Sometimes that just the way things go. Someone comes along and throws away your lembas bread… metaphorically

Always good to see a second generation on the discussion boards. Smile

Here's my girl! [In reply to] Can't Post

I've managed to last a few days without embarrassing you by posting but.... OK, just had to.

Welcome to the playground! I'm so glad you're as nuts as I am and decided to join. Some of the nicest people I've ever "met" are here.

I'll stop now. See, no baby pictures or anything! WinkSmile

Hej! [In reply to] Can't Post

So, I'm finally daring to write my first post here. Smile I'm from Germany, but moved to Sweden a few years ago. (so sorry for my english, I don't have much opportunities to practice). I've been a Tolkien Fan for awhile now: My brother made me read LotR about a year before the films came out and I've been hooked ever since.
I really miss talking to other Tolkien Fans, since my friends irl don't really are that into it and the german forum I was active in kind of quieted down. So I'm hoping to find a place here and hopefully make some new friends! Blush

Greetings from Sweden!

Wilkommen! (I hope my spelling is close enough.) [In reply to] Can't Post

Your English is better than many of us who only speak English, so no worries there. Pull up a chair by the fire and make yourself comfortable, mellon.
