Welcome to PT Loriene. I dont think you're crazy, no. JRRT said himself that he always thought he was
Not inventing, but recording what was already there.
An interesting notion.

It really all depends on what your definition of fiction/non-fiction is. Tolkien's world in many, many ways is a mirror of our own. And in other ways it is a golden age that will never and can never be. It may not be real to the "extreme" (Balrogs frolicking around). But a balrog to me can be entirely different from what a balrog is to you. Middle Earth is so near, and so real, that you can take things that make up Middle Earth, and relate it to the present, without blowing it out of context. Not in a metaphorical or allegorical sense, but much more personal then that. Tolkien's history IS history, whether it's real or not.

Hey Komosot,
I see your point. I think that people can see one thing and think to things about it. I agree with ProgHead777, the comment was nicely put. If you wanna talk write me at elf_girl_loriene@yahoo.com. Bye

Welcome to Planet Tolkien, Loriene88. I spent quite a few years looking for elves everytime I went walking in woods, so it would be unjust of me to call you crazy. As scientists are now working on the theory we did in fact come from Mars, after the Science fiction lobby had been telling them that for decades, maybe the historians will someday find a buriel mound containing dwarves.

Hey Valedhelgwath,
Thanks for the welcome. I used to the same thing, look for elves. When I first started to read the books i became completely obsessed with the Middle-Earth, refusing to come out of my own little world, exept of course when i had to go to school. In fact that is where i came up with my two nicknames. Loriene and Gowen. I eventually used those names in the books i wrote. I am recently working on two books. One is sort of an alternate ending to ROTK and the other is me just adding two characters to Tolkien's books. They'll never be as good as Tolkien's and I will probably never finish them or try to have them published. N/E way, before i bore you all to tears. Namarie.
