    @ethryndal @s-g-dewey Writer’s block, how some people don’t have it remains a mystery to me. Maybe they aren’t like me, a procrastinator, and actually take time to plan out every single scene that is bound to happen. 😛

    I pronounce it as Thay-o-den as well, but I saw LOTR before I read it, so that really was never a problem for me. And now I’m reading it again. 😀

    @dragon-snapper Oh boy! Happy six months! I’m trying to find the courage to start the Silmarillion at the moment.

    You know what’s the worst thing ever? When someone who doesn’t get it says something to the effect of, “Oh, just get over it and write something.” *rips out hair* They know nothing.

    @ethryndal That, my friend, is the worst. *falls to the floor*

    @S-G-Dewey I really really like the name Douglas; from what you said I think that could fit him. (I have a brother named Douglas, but I love the name even if it wasn’t one of my family members’. 😀 )

    @Ethryndal START THE SILMARILLION. Happy six months indeed…but START IT. It ain’t a breeze ta get through, but it’s sure good (obviously aside from the annoying repetition of those Tolkienesque guys who are fair, and strong, and tall, and all that, which in itself is totally not bad but when those are the main characteristics of so many different characters it gets annoying. Know whatta mean?). If you like understanding background stuffs and what’s behind the surface story…you needa read it. Plus—Galadriel’s in there a bit. *solemn nod* So you’ll get her history. What could be better if you’re learning to be someone, after all.

    @emma-flournoy I literally laughed out loud about the “fair, strong, and tall” part. You’re right; that is so Tolkien. XD And yeah, I heard that it’s no walk in the park. But then I thought, “Do I call myself a Tolkien geek and not read the Silmarillion? I’m braver than this!” So here I go. And I love background. Especially when Galadriel’s in it. So it’ll be fun. 🙂

    @ethryndal It really doesn’t take six months. I think I did it in one month and I’m a very slow reader.

    @Daeus Well that’s good. I was pretty sure it wouldn’t, for me, anyway, since I’m a fast reader and got through LOTR in roughly two months. The Silmarillion’s kind of smaller.

    @Ethryndal Yay! You won’t regret it.
    @Daeus is right though…six months is an exaggeration. I’m a slow reader too, and it only took me about a month and a half. It’s not hard if you’re really interested. 😉

    Congrats for being a slow reader, Daeus. That’s good. *very serious nodding* Every teensy detail about everything we must catch and understand, yes? At least that’s my thing.

    @Emma-Flournoy Not a skimmer then? *hands you trophy* You have won my respect.

    @Ethryndal Why thank you. And I happen to like peoples’ respect better than trophies, so yay. 😀

    @ethryndal @emma-flournoy @daeus I actually started reading it last summer, and even now the Fellowship just left Rivendell. 😛 Slow reader, no. Sluggish reader, yes.

    @dragon-snapper I won’t judge you for it. Tolkien’s a hard guy to follow. 🙂

    @ethryndal At times, but it’s more my fault than anything. I am a…selective reader. I’ve probably begun as many stories as books are on my shelf. 😛

    @Dragon-Snapper Oh my. 😀 But I won’t judge you either because Tolkien can indeed be hard to follow. Is this the first time you’ve read it?
    I don’t know how long LotR took me…it was awhile ago and I’m seriously wanting to read it again. I think LotR is easier than the Silmarillion though ’cause it’s more immediately engaging. 😛
