I just got a new copy of FotR :D I haven't read it since summer three or four years ago. I'm really psyched about that. :D

By the way, can anyone recommend any good fanfics that feature Merry and Pippin? I found one that was excellent until about half way through, where it got extremely repetitive and borderline OOC... so I was wondering if anyone's read any good ones?

I still haven't read these books, I plan to some day soon though. I just wanted to share m mom's old LotR fanart. She made these pots inspired by the 1970's cover art.

the inspiration

That's so cool! :D
I haven't seen that cover before, I'll have to find out where it is... if it's supposed to be a specific place at all.
That's a really awesome pot, though. ^_^

By the way, if you guys have the movies, I found a bunch of continuity stuff and bloopers... like in one scene, you can see Gandalf's staff's power cord, and in the Midgewater Marshes, Pippin's hobbit foot is coming off... XD

Ohh, Lord of the Rings is awesome. I haven't rad the book (There IS a book, right?) But I watched all the movies few times. But... Why didn't they flew to the vulcan on those big birds?

Oh, I have been dying for the chance to explain this to someone... XD

If you just watch the movies, there isn't really any explanation for that, since they don't focus too much on the details of each race or dwell on Gandalf's rescue or the other parts where it talks about the eagles.

In the books, the eagle that rescued Gandalf from Orthanc didn't just come when he called like he was trained, or anything. He was sent by Radagast the Brown to take the news of Gollum's escape from Lorien to Saruman at Isengard, and just happened to see Gandalf and go "well jee, that is just not a place for a wizard at all!" After that, he only took Gandalf so far as Rohan (where he tamed and acquired Shadowfax), before refusing to bear him anymore. And besides the fact that they refused to carry the ring (or its bearer), they also probably would have been intercepted by the Nazgul, as they had access to the fell beasts from the beginning if necessary, even though they weren't used in the first book or movie. As Tolkien himself put it, "the eagles are not Middle Earth's taxi service." ;)

*deep breath* Okay, rant is over. XD

O.O Ok, again, but this time a BIT slower.

Lol, sorry... XD

Basically... the eagles don't come when they're called, they do as they please. They refuse to carry the ring or its bearer (i.e. Frodo), and they probably would have been caught by the black riders.

I have wanted to read Lord of the rings since forever.I have forgotten what happened in the movies(bad memory) other than there are elves,men, hobbits and dwarfs was it ?and there were rings for each race or something. but there was another ring that the lord of something had.that was more powerful(i think?) and there was a war and they took the ring but couldn't destroy it.And Gandalf fell from a tower for some reason.But i remember all the characters and creatures and what everything looked like.
but this is good since i want to read all the books and then watch all the lord of the rings movies.

*facepalm* I'm an idiot. This was right here in front of my face, and I made a new one. :P Oh well.

Ooh! I love LotR! I found a vid of all the times Frodo falls in the movies... XD It's hilarious. I've read all the books, except the last bit of the Return of the King, and I've seen all the movies. I started reading the Hobbit when I was nine, and I fell in love with them. ^_^ The extended editions are on my Christmas list. :D I can't wait for the Hobbit movies!!

Thank you Fowlie!

Well, when all the normal people find out how cool it is to be different, they'll want to be different too. So if everyone is different, then different people will be normal, and the normal people will be different.

I've just discovered the LotR musical soundtrack.
It's AMAZING.
Anyone heard The Cat and the Moon? Can't get it out of my head. Not complaining in the least.

Hmm... I don't think I have...


So I was looking on Tumblr, and I found a ton of these really cute LotR gifs. I didn't know where else they could go so I put them here. Some.. aren't so cute, but I still like them. XD

^ My friend, welcome to the world of the Tumblr Ringers :awesome: Friendliest and awesomest fandom on the internet, present company excluded.

Here is The Cat and the Moon, if you want to listen to it ^^ It's awesome. It's the song that Frodo sings in the Prancing Pony, from the book, just with a few changes :]
