Hello from a lifelong Tolkien fan!

Postby SmaugTheStupendous » Tue Jan 20, 2015 12:53 pm

Hello all!

I am glad to have found you. My name is Seth and I come to you as a new user, excited to further explore the universe of Tolkien. I am 22 years old. The first novel I ever read was The Hobbit, and I instantly fell in love. From there I read Lord of the Rings and being only 22, I was still quite young when the movies released, bringing me even further into the universe. In high school, I made the leap to The Simarillion and failed. I moved on the read the entirety of The Histories of Middle Earth and then revisited The Simarillion and finished it. I was excited also my sophomore year, when The Children of Hurin released, and read that as well.

I am a huge Tolkien fan and I don't know if that will ever change. I wonder if it is only me that can't seem to keep his universe out of my head like a child, or if there are other adults that feel the same, and so I am here. I am a big fan of George RR Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire and I became a member at Westeros.org because I have a similar issue with his universe, and met many others who were just as interested as I. Then I started to think, why not look to see if there is one for a far more known and accomplished writer who has been around far longer than I, before even my parents. I should have found you all sooner.

And so I come to you, ready for more Tolkien. Hello all!

Welcome, SmaugTheStupendous. What an excellent name.

Have fun exploring the boards. Take a look at the guides at the top of this forum if you need any tips, and post in the Adoptions forum if you have any questions. :) I look forward to seeing you around. :)

Life is short; break the rules, forgive quickly; kiss slowly; love truly; laugh uncontrollably; and never regret anything that made you smile. Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

Grab a chance and you won't be sorry for the might-have-beens. - Arthur Ransome
