    I don't believe I gave this permission to be on page 11.

    Jedi Galadriel and Mr. P; you are required to sign release forms before this fanfic is allowed to pass page 5. :D ;) :)

    I just love this story :)
    I was just seeing a little show on TV about LOTR:FORN, and I was really enjoing it, until they mentioned Legolas - or rather Legalus, as they called him. How horrible!
    Anyway, UP!

    Sorry. The movie thing has left a sour taste in my mouth on Middle Earth, and I've been consequently derelect here. Hopefully, I'll shape up soon.

    The worst thing about the movie is that there's a rash of fanfiction out there right now written by people whove have watched the movie without reading the book. *shudder*

    aaah, that sounds really bad. *cringes*

    Well, I've been very very busy lately... I'll see about getting something done this week -- it's midterm week, but I only have one midterm! :D No promises, though...

    Right. I had a mild desire to boycott it anyway, because of the Arwen issue, but after dealing with people who were saying "Peter Jackson should direct episode 3, because he's the Messiah of filmmaking and Lucas is the devil" -- well, it did not dispose me to want to have anything at all to do with it.

    I also really do object to the change in Arwen's character (someone please confirm or deny -- a person who hadn't read the book told me that Arwen rather than Gandalf makes the water into horses... I have a hard time believing they would do something that severe, and I think maybe she was mistaken and missed something as she drooled over Legolas), because Tolkien very specifically took the Arwen/Aragorn story out of the Red Book to avoid confusing the hobbit-centric point of view (it's in the Letters; I don't remember which number).

    Well, the book *is* better. But what can you expect? The only way to do *everything* in LOTR is to make it into a t.v. series, with the same quality to the retelling as a Star Wars movie.

    As someone who has read the books, there were things I picked up that my non-LOTR-reading family didn't.

    Wow! This story is really awsome... and I am only on page four! I am looking forward to reading this story in the next couple months(for that is how long it will take me to read it with it being so long and all:)

    Up!
    I lost track of this on page 33. It's really great!
    And yes, in the movie Arwen does turn the water into horses. But I thought Elrond did it in the book?

    Personally, I don't believe (in the sense that I know that Jackson did it but that I can't believe that he actually did it) that Jackson made Arwen the one who did the water --> horses thing. It's simply impossible because it's ELROND who has the Ring, not Arwen... and so, Elrond's the one who "has the power" to do all that stuff that the Ring (I forget what the one he has's called) can do.

    Gandalf did the horses thing in the books, though Elrond controlled the flooding. Gandalf just added a few "touches" of his own.

    Oh dear it looks like I've stirred up a hornet's nest.

    Well, I thought the movie was better then I'd feared, but not as good as I'd hoped. A few of the scenes were not that great *cough* ford scene *cough*, but it wasn't that bad

    Out of curiosity, is there anyone on this thread who hasn't read TTT and RotK yet?

    Mr. P, you make a good point about Elrond's ring; I remembered that he caused the flood (and Gandalf made the horses in it, apparently for the sake of decoration), but of course it was because he had the Ring.

    Well, if Arwen has made the poster, replaced Glorfindel, and started necking with Aragorn prominently enough to make the trailer, maybe Elrond decided, what the heck, she's invulnerable. She can have the silly thing.
