    @emily-waldorf,

    Ooh, quotes… I really like these:

    “Courage is found in unlikely places.” -Gildor Inglorion

    “Deeds will be no less valiant because they are unpraised.” -Aragorn

    “There’s some good in this world, Mr. Frodo… and it’s worth fighting for.” -Samwise Gamgee

    Plus Sam’s whole spiel about stories, but that’s quite the speech so I won’t post it here. 😉 As for scenes… oof. I really like that scene where the Fellowship is created, and also coming into Rohan. 😀

    "For love is strong as death." -God

    Hiiii guys I didn’t have time to get caught up on the conversation, but @joelle-stone YOU LIVE IN CO??????? CUZ I DO TOOOO!!!!!!!!! Also, I’m definitely an… introvert extrovert writer. With a side of extrovertedness and some introvert for entertainment when people are annoying me. Hby? XD

    And those quotes… *melts into the floor*

    SAM IS SOOOO SWEET!!!!!! But also all the other characters.

    And since I’m now part of the butting into conversations club, LotR book fav characters are Faramir, Haldir, Glorfindel, Gandalf, Legolas, Aragorn, and Eomer. Wow. So pretty much everyone XD

    LotR movies fav characters are Aragorn, Legolas, Eomer, Eowyn, and lastly Faramir.

    And personally I think The Hobbit movies are absolute trash and the only good thing about them is Bard. They did an amazing job of his character, and then everyone else is kind of… blech.

    and lastly, #1: yes, I do skate! Figure skating, more specifically ice dance, although I do a bit of freestyle as well. #2, yes I do have enemies and it’s verrry sad, and your idea of the chocolates is amazing I shall have to do that, and #3 YOUR BLOG IS AMAZIIINNNGGG!!!! 🙂

    My favorites (the first three all struggle for first place soooo…no order among those): Legolas, Aragorn, Faramir, then Sam, Merry/Pippin, Beregond. But Eomer and Gandalf and Boromir…aggghh

    I like Imrahil, but you don’t get enough of him to make him a favorite.

     


    @denali-christianson
    where are you in Return of the King?

     


    @joelle-stone
    those really are good quotes/parts. 🙂

    And I find Denethor fascinating, but “like” is too strong of a word. I divide my time between pitying him and shouting  at him.

    HOW DID I FORGET BEREGOND???????????? I LOVE HIM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    And I’m like halfway through chapter three rn, although I’m reading a lot today so I’ll probably get way further through it by tonight!

    @denali-christianson Yay! some people think I’m a bit strange for adding Beregond in my top 7 favorite characters. Also, refresh my memory: who’s Haldir? I know I’ll have an “aha” moment when you say it, but I can’t place him.

    do either of you know where Canon City is? That’s where I used to live.

     

    also does anyone here like music by a group called Clamavi De Profundis? It has a lot of songs influenced/from LOTR

    @emily-waldorf

    Lol I’m not surprised at all! He’s such a noble character. He befriends Pip and saves Faramir from fiery death! What’s not to love???

    Haldir is the lead elf who guides the Fellowship into Lothlorien. He’s very sweet and I love him. 🙂

    Also I LOVE YOUR QUOTEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! *sniffles in the corner* Quin is such an amazing character and I want to read his canon story soooo bad!!!!


    @crazywriter

    Yes!!! I’m actually planning to do a gap year program in Canon City. It’s about two hours from where I live. Does anyone know where Evergreen is? I’m fairly close to it.

    And no, I haven’t heard of this group. But I’m about to go look them up!!!!

    Any chance that gap year program is called Worldview academy?

    Wow. If you go there you will literally be about 200 yards from where I used to live. I never went to any of their stuff before but had a good friend that did. Would you go this coming year? If so, just look for country green apartments and you’ll find my old haunts

    @denali-christianson

    Really??? That’s so cool! I remember you talking about the C Springs highschool ROTC equivalent, but I had no idea you were that close to my possible gap year program! I would be going the year of 2023-2024, but I will still look for them when I go!

    Yeah, if your still interested in flying the Civil Air Patrol squadron in Canon City is a good place to go, just even to check it out. I’m kinda out of it now but it’s an interesting thing to get involved with even now. Although as I’ve had more experience, some squadrons are a waste of time. CAP in Arkansas is exhibit A of wasted time. It’s really a lost cause.

    Ah, but I lay my troubles on you. So what are your plans after that?
    Lord willing I will graduate in ‘24, and probably join the coast guard in ‘25. Afterwards I hope to get involved in more medical career training, but also to get theological training and there’s a good school I’ve heard of in KY called Trinity College.

    YES!!!! My thoughts exactly!

    Ah! I thought he was an Elf. 🙂 Poor guy has to mask Legolas when Legolas is being super unpleasant.

    Aw, tysm! I wanted to put up the whole quote, which is: “I know that one day everything I do will be called to account; on that day I want those who hated me most to have the least to say against me.” (there wasn’t room). Aw, that’s sweet of you; maybe someday you can! (Although, I’m beginning to have my doubts that Quin is the same person in my book and on the role play…:(

    How’s your writing coming?

    @crazywriter

    That’s sad! I remember you were quite involved while on the Wingfeather forum. I might still try to get involved, although I’m currently very far away from C Springs to be going down there on a regular basis. Maybe during my gap year.

    That’s awesome! I’ve heard good things about Trinity. I’m hoping to go to a Christian university to study film, creative writing, and business. Other than that, I have no idea and I’m excited to see where God ends up leading me! I hope to one day start a Christian film company that makes quality films with storylines that make sense and actors that actually know how to, ya know, act… XD


    @emily-waldorf

    Ikr!!! I was like, Legolas, we don’t care. Stop being a brat. Aragorn is trying to make your future dwarf friend feel better and you’re being such a snob! XD

    You’re welcome! OH MY GOODNESS IT’S SO GOOODDDDD!!!!!! Lol that’s a bit of a problem… How is he different?
