Hallo lovelies!! I am so sorry for the long absence. Great news is that I have a new full time job! Yay! Bad news, I don’t get as much free time to work on my own things. But I am determined to finish this guy before the holidays. You all have nnnooooooo idea how long I’ve wanted to do this. I have been having way too much fun! *laughs* Now I have to do one about Rohan, and Treebeard…and Galadriel…and Glorfindel…and Thorin’s company…I could do so many…

You shall see more updates sooner rather than later!

Lord Of The Rings trivia: around 1970, JRR Tolkien wrote a detailed physical description of the Fellowship of the Ring.

It’s never been released, however, as the context was a vituperative attack on Pauline Baynes’ drawing of the Fellowship on a 1970 map of Middle-earth.

Misplaced filial piety on Christopher Tolkien’s part, I suppose.

The Departure of Boromir

“The River had taken Boromir son of Denethor, and he was not seen again in Minas Tirith, standing as he used to stand upon the White Tower in the morning. But in Gondor after-days it long was said that the elven-boat rode the falls and the foaming pool, and bore him down through Osgiliath, and past the many mouths of Anduin, out into the Great Sea at night under the stars.

For a while the three companions remained silent, gazing after him. Then Aragorn spoke. ‘They will look for him from the White Tower,’ he said, 'but he will not return from mountain or from sea.”
