Once I caught a fish alive!
6-7-8-9-10
Then I let it go again
Why did you let it go?
Because it bit my finger so
Which finger did it bite?
This little finger on my right!

Thumbs down

Though all to ruin fell the world
and were dissolved and backward hurled
unmade into the old abyss,
yet were its making good, for this--
the dusk, the dawn, the earth, the sea--
that Luthien for a time should be.
-Of Beren and Luthien

"Then Morgoth recalled the doom of Huan, and he chose one from among the whelps of the race of Draugluin; and he fed him with his own hand upon living flesh, and put his power upon him. Swiftly the wolf grew, until he could creep into no den, but lay huge and hungry before the feet of Morgoth. There the fire and anguish of hell entered him, and he became filled with a devouring spirit, tormented, terrible, and strong. Carcharoth, the Red Maw, he is named in the tales of those days, and Anfauglir, the Jaws of Thirst.
-Of Beren and Luthien



In the long version (lost tales ii) there's a cat who helps beren.

I read the History of ME up through volume 5 which I think is the Lost Road, after that I lost interest. As much as I love Tolkien, it turned out I don't actually love him enough to read his draft versions of LOTR. I was very interested in how his mythology developed though.

Reading Old Norse and Middle High German sagas appears to have been a large part of it.

For sure. That's what he studied and based his shit mainly on.

Rbg I have only read a handful of the histories. lost tales i and ii, unfinished tales, and lays of beleriand. i think the rest is probs christopher cashing in.

So buzzard what do you consider as good fantasy or have you written off the entire genre?

We eventually reached the conclusion that only Tom Bombadil and the fact that Hobbits have hairy feet were original ideas.

Perhaps his soldiering was breathtakingly original?

A man creates an entire world in his head complete with several languages and you want originality?

Generally speaking, I don't trust people that survive wars.

You just know they hung around at the back, faking ankle sprains and so on.

Give me a moment to locate your Facebook and post only things you've 'liked,' preventing you from doing that thing where you ask me what I'm into so as to completely shit on it.
