    My sister wants to know if the book you’re reading is Joey?😊

    Yeahhh…Mistie had the kitten-flu really bad, so now she’s blind. She is such a sweet though.

    Nice! I’m pretty far along on my WIP (well. . . one of them; my Google Docs is a sea of forgotten stories right now, lol) too. What’s yours about?

    @joelle-stone My sister loved Joey.😄 Are you enjoying it?


    @rebekah12
    Mistie is a calico mix of grey, white, and orange. I’ll try to get a picture sometime.😁 Btw, I love your profile pic. Is it Legolas?

    @arindown Yes, it is Legolas! Glad you like it 😀 LOTR and The Hobbit [movies] are some of my fandoms. Mistie sounds adorable! My family doesn’t have any cats since my dad’s allergic to them, but we will hopefully get a puppy soon, and I have two rabbits.

    I remember your rabbits! We talked about them way back in the days of the flabbit room. What are there names again?

    @arindown,

    I’ve read it twice before and I LOVE IT!! It’s so sad… and sweet… and just great. Highly recommended.


    @rebekah12
    ,

    LOTR & the Hobbit are some of my favs! Who is your favorite character from both the films? Mine would be Aragorn or Sam for LOTR and Thorin for the Hobbit. (Also, totally random question, but do you prefer Thorin or Thranduil, Legolas’ dad?)

    @jasmine Their names are Sunny and Nightfall. My previous two were Dawn and Rex. Sunny’s a female tan mini-lop with white belly and black specks. I got her last year after losing Dawn because Nightfall was lonely. Nightfall is a male black full-size Rex rabbit. I got him the year before last after losing Rex. Dawn was a female gray and white mini-Rex. I got her ((*counts*)) seven years ago, and I lost her January of last year. I got Rex three years ago, and I lost him the year before last.

     


    @joelle-stone
    My faves from LOTR are Legolas, Faramir, Pippin, and probably Aragorn too. From The Hobbit ((when I said ‘movies’ I meant the live-action ones BTW)) that would be Thorin, Kili, and Fili ((and since I’m talking about live-action remakes, Legolas again, lol)). And as for Thorin VS Thranduil, Thorin definitely has a bigger arc, but when it comes to battle scenes, Thranduil rocks, so Thorin wins a very close match 😉

    @rebekah12,

    Legolas is pretty cool all in all. Honestly… lol, plz don’t be offended, but Thranduil is my least favorite character, banning Orcs, Saruman, and Sauron. XD

    @joelle-stone I’m not offended! Thranduil DEFINITELY could have been a better character.

    @joelle-stone Thanks for recommending it. I’ll have to read it sometime.


    @rebekah12
    Mistie is so cute. I have a brother that is allergic to cats, but so far we haven’t had any trouble.😁

    I love LOTR (the movies included). I haven’t see the Hobbit yet, though. Is it good? I’m a diehard Frodo fan, but I also love Aragorn, Gandalf, Eowyn, and of course, Sam. I have a little bit of a different fandom for Legolas, because I’m not emotionally attached to his character, but he’s just SO awesome.😂

    @arindown,

    The Hobbit movies are good depending on how much you like movie directors to stick to the original story. My sister, when she first watched them, said that she liked it when directors do that because they basically create a whole new story and you don’t always know what is going to happen. Now she wishes they’d stuck to the story better. XD

    So, yes, I like the movies, a lot. But the writers changed a lot of stuff, mostly by adding characters (i.e. Legolas and a she-Elf named Tauriel, along with a Man named Alfrid and other little things). Personally I liked them, but I know a lot of people who don’t. So go from there!

    As for Legolas, I honestly think he’s pretty much a jerk when he comes into the Hobbit in the second movie. In the third movie he gets a lot better, and in LOTR he’s pretty swag. 🙂

    I like The Hobbit movies, but don’t expect them to be like the book XD

    My favoritw character in LOTR is Boromir. Hands down. Not even close.

    Okay, its close. But he’s such a good character, because he has internal struggle, and he gives in, fails, but still gets up and protects the defenseless. He is a true warrior, and despite his arrogance, he is the best character(in my opinion). Aragorn in the movies was good, but i feel like they could’ve done better. Sam would be a close second to Boromir, and yeah, Merry and Pippin are in there too.

     

     

     

    In terms of the hobbit, I’d say that i’d have to choose from each movie just cause so much character development happens between them.

    In the first, i have to say Gandalf was the best.

    In the second, it’s Bilbo.

    In the third its Thorin, or Fili and Kili.

    My story is about a band of teenagers sent on a rite-of-passage mission to become warriors, who along the way stumble into a war.

     

     

    Yeah that was really short. Sorry.
