Us fyeahtheraceofmen admins would like to wish a happy new year and a wonderful 2015 to everyone who’s following us all Tolkien fandom. (What do you mean “everyone who’s following us”? How classist, who said that?)

When we first started this blog in 2013, we thought it would be just us, our friends, and maybe friends of friends if we’re lucky. But here we are, with thousands of amazing people following us and giving us the kindest feedback. We enjoy this blog a great deal and you have all been great. Honestly, running this blog wouldn’t be nearly as much fun without your support. (This is not just empty words because let’s be real, if you guys hadn’t liked and reblogged our stuff, where would we be?) We would also like to take a second to mention our greatest affiliate and supporter (and a blog we all fangirl over) askmiddlearth, who always supported us with their amazing meta.

Long story short (it’s a bit late for that but whatever) we hope you all have an amazing, wonderful, spectacular year, to the point where you will laugh at the troubles you’ve had in 2014.

We appreciate your support, and in the following year, we hope to continue being a blog that deserves a place on your Following list.

“But of bliss and glad life there is little to be said, before it ends; as works fair and wonderful, while still they endure for eyes to see, are their own record, and only when they are in peril or broken for ever do they pass into song.”

“Among the tales of sorrow and of ruin that came down to us from the darkness of those days there are yet some in which amid weeping there is joy and under the shadow of death light that endures. And of these histories most fair still in the ears of the Elves is the tale of Beren and Lúthien.“

“For Morgoth had long prepared his force in secret, while ever the malice of his heart grew greater, and his hatred of the Noldor more bitter; and he desired not only to end his foes but to destroy also and defile the lands that they had taken and made fair.”
