Scenes From The Hat Can't Post

Greeting and salutatorians, my dear TORnfolk, and welcome to another edition of SFTH. I am your lovely and talented Mistress of the Hat. For today's back-to-school edition,

Where did people of Middle Earth go to college? And did they graduate? Invisible bonus points for telling us their majors!

Remember your // for subject-only posts for us threaded readers, and PM me with your fabulous suggestions for a future SFTH!

And suddenly the Tornadoes saw afar off a greenlight, as it were a cloud with a living heart of flame;
and they knew that this was no vision only, but that PJ had made a new thing: The Hobbit, the Film that Is.

For peats sake. [In reply to] Can't Post

Amon Soil U. It took a while, like sand through the hourglass, but yes. Loam-sharking, claymation and silt screening.

A few harmless flakes working together can unleash an avalanche of destruction.

Legolas studied at Wake Forest . . . [In reply to] Can't Post

. . . but he was a party boy. After seven years he finally acquired a degree in PhysEd, minor in Pottery Making.

The Road goes ever on and on
Down from the door where it began
Now far ahead the Road has gone
And I must follow, if I can

"Thorin sat up with a start. 'Something is not right,' he muttered to himself as he stood up and
looked towards the mirror . . . . . . . . . 'Durin's bones', he gasped, 'what's happened to my beard?'"

Thranduil also went to the School of Mines [In reply to] Can't Post

where he had the highly skilled dwarves there do most of his work for him (with payment of course).

He was a returning student who already had a few other degrees but was vacationing in the area and thought that since there was also a school there, why not attend?

Sauron only spent one semester at UB... [In reply to] Can't Post

The Necromancer went to the University of Baltimore

He then transferred to Miskatonic University where he majored in Biology with minors in Psychology and Sociometrics.

Little-known-fact: Sauron played offense for the school's football team, the fightin' Cephalopods (go, 'Pods, go!).

Radagast went to the San Diego Zoo University to become a veterinarian [In reply to] Can't Post

Gandalf went to Roke...everyone knows Middle-earth never quite managed to develop as good a school of wizardry as the one in the isles.
Aragorn went to Bravos Tech... the high society of Middle-earth sent their promising young elites to the best schools of the world, regardless of what continent they were located in. Aragorn learnt military tactics and fencing, hence his flawless "water dancer" technique.

Another graduate of the School of Mines was Galadriel. [In reply to] Can't Post

She was working towards her PhD in the highly cutting-edge, in-demand, and potentially world-changing field of Cryptography.
During her time as a student she blew up the curve multiple times and even came up with her own invention to help stop the dark lord from taking over the world.
However, no matter how many times and ways she excelled, all her fellow students couldn't shake the idea that she was really enrolled there to obtain her MRs. It was very hard for them to accept her work as a woman and an equal in such a male-dominated field. In order to get people to accept her invention she had to share it with Celeborn and have him do the advertising, otherwise no one would take it seriously. She also could not use her invention as her thesis because she feared that the dark lord would then be able to find it, so she spent the rest of her life keeping it hidden from him while simultaneously using it to preserve and protect those that she loved most dearly.
In the end, she never ended up graduating with the PhD. Instead she left with the MS, deciding that it was more important to keep her invention secret rather than giving in to the temptation employing it as a hacker and taking over the world herself - or seizing the fame and glory by publishing it. She was content to simply diminish, and remain Galadriel.

Show or do not show, there is no tell.

now see [In reply to] Can't Post

I always had it that the Orcs were the Frat boys, always slobbering on one another and fighting about the littlest things. Pick any school with a good football team and you will see a student section full of the every saturday in Fall.

The dwarves I figured went to to Georgia Tech, after what engineer wouldn't go there.

The elves well, well they had their choice of any Ivy league school they wanted because they fight the tall white good looking mold required on the entrance exams.

I'm guessing Gandalf dropped out of MIT after that Good Will Hunting guy solved the equatiion before he could, btw a side note, Saruman actually used Will Hunting as name in college an no one really liked him either so like a good boy he transferred out and finished a degree where the rest of the pretentious people go who seek after world domination but never actually succeed (Duke, just kidding).

Galadriel graduated from an all boys college because she followed the sons of Feanor wherever they went.

Elrond of course has a Stanford, Harvard and Yale education all with minors in feminine literature, and one in under water Hugo Weaving, I mean basket weaving my bad.

Sauron went to Cambridge, which is why he is always disliked by all of his buddies who hold doctorates from Oxford.

Bilbo was a State College man, proud but simple majorred in antiques.

Aragorn studied at Westpoint, but as he did not want to follow his father he left the school and enlisted in the Green Berets, though he never found a liking to the hat.
