Joined 5 years ago from The Shire
I've been a Tolkien fan since Legolas' actor was in diapers, and I used to play Elrond on TV. Er, I mean, on the LOTR Plaza, an enormous Lord of the Rings / Hobbit fan community.
Two bookshelves worth of Tolkien's Middle-earth books plus multiple copies of the films suggest that my condition is incurable.
"Anything that Hobbits had no immediate use for, but were unwilling to throw away, they called a mathom." (Prologue, The Fellowship of the Ring, J.R.R. Tolkien)
Some longtime Tolkien fans may recognize my old handle on the Lord of the Rings Plaza: Tinw Filigod.

Gilraen, Aragorn's mother, is one of those proud but doomed female characters in Tolkien's Middle-earth who can't seem to get a "happily ever after" ending.

J.R.R. Tolkien subdivided some of the Free Peoples of Middle-earth into sub-races. Learn about the different kinds of Men, Elves and Hobbits.

Was Sauron really a big, disembodied flaming eye, as he's portrayed in the Lord of the Rings films? If not, how do we know?

While Tolkien is infamous for his scarcity of female characters (there are none in The Hobbit), there's actually a fair number of strong women in his Middle-earth writings.

J.R.R. Tolkien was a medieval languages scholar and a nitpicker. Nevertheless, there's a few charming anachronisms in The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings.
