Oh, Luthien, what a wonderful story! Welcome! You will find kindred here, as well as support for your art. I look forward to learning more of your insights.
Sing and be glad, all ye children of the West,
for your King shall come again,
and he shall dwell among you
all the days of your life.

Mae govannen and welcome Lúthien! :wave:

It is terrific to have an equally obsessed Tolkien lover in our midst. I am eager to have you share your art with us. It looks as if you have a wonderfully rich and diverse Tolkien background and I hope you post often.

As Merry has said ... you have fallen in with many kindred spirits here. :D

thanks for the welcome!

-> I was wondering (just because I'm curious) what the valar names underneath your user names (ie. Manwë, Varda) meant?

I thought it was some sort of secondary username, but I can't find anything like that in the control panel.

All the members with Valar and Maiar 'second' names are Administrators (Valar) or Moderators (Maiar), so you know who to contact it you have any board queries or concerns :wink: .

Bienvenue, MICHKA! I can read your French well enough, but I would not want to offend you by attempting to write in it! I look forward to reading your insights.

Bienvenue, MICHKA!

like Merry, I can read French and understand what you say, but I have to reply in English. I hope you will find lots of things here to interest you!

salut à tous, fervents de Tolkien; j'ai la grande satisfaction d'avoir obtenu les ''contes et légendes inachevés'' et je vais pouvoir affiner mes connaissances sur tout ce monde imaginaire qui fourmille de personnages, et dont il faut parfois relire les épisodes plusieurs fois avant de bien assimiler. Parfaire mon éducation tolkienne est un chantier entrepris depuis la sortie des films mais doucement je me suis enthousiasmée, et petit à petit je parviens à compléter le registre de tous ces romans magiques. Je dois reconnaître que ce forum m'a fortifiée dans ce sens, je ne m'en passe pas!! même les plus anciens témoignages me paraissent utiles et les détails relatés ont une grande importance car je les découvre peu à peu depuis mon inscription, je vous suis donc redevable: merci beaucoup!!!

Hello all! Actually I should say that I am re-introducing myself! I've been on Viggo-Works and this board for many years but have not been very active on either one for quite a while. Life events intervening, etc.!! Fun Stuff!

Anyway, I am re-reading The Hobbit once or twice before the first movie comes out in December (CAN'T WAIT!!!), and I figured there will be a lot of build-up on this board, so I would like to rejoin you all and participate in the excitement that is brewing!

Hello, cross-harps, and welcome back! Actually, we've been pretty quiet here for a while with only a few active members. But we manage to keep ourselves entertained nonetheless. We do keep the Hobbit Calendar up to date and you can read the entries as we go along. And of course, as the movie date approaches, we'll have a lot to talk about!
