hi everyone! my name is samantha and i'm from canada. i'm 18 years old and have grown up with tolkien. when i was little my dad used to read the stories to me (i loved the way he changed his voice for each of the characters... especially gollum!)
i've read the hobbit, the lord of the rings, the silmarillion, and unfinished tales. (not to mention all the other books that have been written about tolkien) currently i am reading beowulf to see where tolkien got some of his ideas.
i speak english and french fluently, am also learning german (ja... das ist stimmt!) and can read spanish (don't ask me to write or speak it... i'm working at it though). guess what part of tolkien i find the most facinating? if you guess the languages you are one smart cookie! i'm by no means an expert but i am learning and hope to learn more. i'm not completely hopeless... parts of my diary are written in the feanorian script.... Ai! did i hear a dork alarm go off somewhere in the distance?
i do dabble in fan art on occasion. but alas, i'm not the greatest artist so my sketches will stay in my book. i'm a competant musician and love playing the music from the movies. my favorite song is the battle of evermore by led zeppelin (now who wouldn't have guessed?). howard shore... how i love thee... let me count the ways... ah... amazing music. and peter jackson.... you're right up there too!
i collect anything i can get my hands on relating to tolkien. i just recently got my grubby little paws on an original teaser poster for the animated lord of the rings. now that's pretty hardcore ;). just kidding.
so that's all i can think to say right now and i'm sure you all know more about me than you want to.
namarie... for now
Oh... and this was me 2 years ago
... i made that costume myself!
