Chatting + Middle-Earth Favorites

Hello! Yes, I'm actually posting twice in one month. Meant to do this closer to April 1st, but yes, Gollum's fun the other day was for April Fool's and he does not have permanent control over my blog (though maybe he really would be a better/more consistant blogger...would anyone read a similar posting schedule from him if he had his own blog?). I'm on a library computer now but sometime at home I'll add a screen shot of Gollum's takeover to his post. Thanks for all the views and comments on that - that was a lot of fun to do. And you all, thanks for following and reading even though my blog is so quiet all the time. In total pageviews, I've made it to over nine thousaaaaaand (always wanted to say that)! So thanks. :)

Now here's a Middle-Earthen Favorites tag from Ashley Tara of A Dreamer's Galaxy!

(Apologies for the possibly weird and obscure responses in some cases)

Favorite book: Probably Fellowship of the Ring, but Return of the King is a close second
Favorite movie (LOTR or The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey): FotR!
Favorite Hobbit character: Bilbo
Next 3 favorite Hobbit characters: Gandalf and...wasn't big on the dwarves in the book and am still getting used to maybe liking them in the movie so can't really think of anyone else except Saruman and Lindir because he was Figwit in LotR and shares a name with an elf from the FotR book.
Favorite LOTR character: Sam
Next 5 favorite LOTR characters: Aragorn, Frodo, Faramir, Legolas, Gandalf (these change all the time)
Favorite race (Elf, Dwarf, Hobbit, Man, etc.): Hobbit!
Favorite couple: Sam and Rosie, but also love Faramir and Eowyn
Favorite member of the Fellowship of the Ring: Sam
Favorite member of the Company of Thorin Oakenshield: Bilbo
Favorite place in Middle-Earth: The Shire, but I could go on about how much I like others too (this tag is reminding me just how much I've loved LotR!)
Favorite battle: Helm's Deep I think, mostly because of Legolas and Gimli
Favorite weapon: Maybe the Legolas' bow of the Galadhrim? Or Andruil? Ooh, does the phial of Galadriel count?
Favorite creature: Does Gollum count? Oh oh! The fox in the FotR book.
Favorite quote: One I always think of is "Long has my father, the steward of Gondor..." from FotR, or basically the entirety of the Council of Elrond. From the movie. The book scene is pretty good too though.
Favorite song: (end credits/in movie): Hmm, I'm going to go with That's What Bilbo Baggins Hates. Also liked the Lament for Gandalf after I got sheet music for it.
Favorite theme (movie score): Nooooo everything. Ok probably Breaking of the Fellowship, but The Ring Goes South, King of the Golden Hall, and so many others are good...

Thanks for the tag Ashley Tara!

Guess that's all for now. Have a great week everyone, and may the Lord be with you!
