Yeah sorry, I'd overlooked your 'tongue in cheek' comment to Hui above. But I still think Findaráto as a Mother-name for Arafinwë is untenable. On the other hand I could imagine Eärwen calling her...

I'd very much like to see your ideas in action, and I'm in no particular hurry about it. I'll probably be largely away from my computer in the second half of September (planning to take our mobile...

Because thou shalt not mix thy Greek and Latin roots. I take it you mean autophilia or ipsamory.;)


I've heard of Morleg, and even his stillborn twin brother Lessleg, but who's Alvar?

We knew all along that Middle-earth had walking trees, but barking trees? :eek:That's quite a revelation!

Pipe The day destroys the night, Night divides the day

I wouldn't be so categoric about that. It's true that the Red Book refers to Gimli with male pronouns throughout, but we know that Dwarven genders can be difficult to tell apart, what with bearded...

So, the Balrog and Shelob were secretly married and had children (with wings, horns and eight legs each), but don't tell anybody or the Tolkien Estate will send assassins after you to bury the truth.

A Shadow in the Dark / In the House of the Past / The Knife of Tom Bombadil

Yep. Well put!


I'd say that for FotR as a whole. No coincidence it''s the most worn volume of my old German boxed edition.
