Y'know, LOTR was the (almost) first book I read. I was about 5 or 6. Then I saw the Bakshi film too and I watched it a thousand times. I was lying in my bed thinking I'm with Sam and Frodo. I guess I kinda was. I guess I still am when i'm happy or sad and want to be less lonely. I have a tradition that I watch the films every year. Novaer! <3
SAME HERE! I would go hiking with my friends and we would pretend to be the fellowship, I was always Frodo or Sam. I’m one of those weirdos that reads all of the books every year (especially my personal fave, Silmarillion) and I watch the movies. It’s an amazing feeling, to be so involved in a fantasy world that invokes such imagination. I’ll never get over it.
