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

That really is a great pic! [In reply to] Can't Post

It looks like one they'd take for the American Library Association's "READ" promo.



The more I read about him, the better I like him! :D THANKS for the Heads-Up!

I thought they were [In reply to] Can't Post

(a word that can't be used on TORN given our family-friendly rules - Ataahua). At least that's what Martin Freeman said. Maybe Cumberbatchians are the males. The book looks pretty cool!

cumberbatch [In reply to] Can't Post

  
just fyi, cumberbatch himself has stated that he doesn't like the term (because it's a derogatory term used for females; i agree with him).

Its flattering, though I worry about what it says for feminism. Its quite a pejorative term Cumberbabes might be better.

I'm not impressed. [In reply to] Can't Post

I hope that's a studio shot or does BC buy his books by the yard.
Looks more like the sort of "library" that would feature in a Hello magazine article.

gosh, I prefer cumberbatchians to cumberbabes. [In reply to] Can't Post

But then, I've never liked being called a babe.

I can't believe I started this. I don't like the b*%** word, either. I was just repeating what I heard. Don't care for "babes", either.Blush

Don't worry--you actually didn't start it [In reply to] Can't Post

whoever came up with that in the media/online did. You were just reporting.
And now we're all resisting, and coming up with alternatives, so no worries!Smile
