Hello, my name is Christie and well, I don't know what to say so I will tell you how I fell in love with The Lord of the Rings.

Last school year, my junior year, I took a film studies class because I love movies. The class is great and good and all that stuff and it's around the end of the year and we were studying the advances of film and the class got to choose between The Fellowship of the Ring and Ben Hur (are there 2 R's?) ironically I voted for Ben Hur and every one else voted for FOTR (litterally, I was the only one who wanted to watch Ben Hur.) The minute my teacher put in the movie and I hear the music I instantly changed my mind, I thought "Maybe this will be better than Ben Hur." and it was. I don't know what it was but I felt the movie I was happy when I saw Gandalf's fireworks and so sad when you think he dies in the Mines of Moria. I just fell in love and watched The Two Towers and Return of the King and ended up relating them to my life and quoting the movies and wanting to learn the languages and read the books and I am on my way. I started reading The Hobbit but only got finished with the first chapter because I had to read another book (Because of Winn Dixie :annoyed: ) for my English summer school class. I loved what I read and can't wait to read it and all the others. Please excuse my ignorance of the books, but boy do I (I think) know a lot about the movies.

I am not the type to be into a movie just because of the actors, and I don't think you should like movies for just that reason.... though I do think Elijah Wood and Dominic Monaghan are hot I don't love LOTR because of them and that is not the soul reason I watch the movies. (It's okay if you do, but thats just not the type of person I am.)

I joined because I have no one to talk to about this wonderful story. None of my friends know what I am talking about half the time and it's pretty lonely. Mostely I want to learn more about Tolkien and his beutifull languages and his spectacular story. I hope you are all nice and don't think you are better than anyone just because you know more, I hope there are more generous people than that. :confused:

Wow! I wrote a lot..... sorry for any misspellings and thanks for reading this! :bye2:

Ah, someone else that loves Dominic Monaghan ;) I don't love LotR because of the hot actors either though. I had no idea who most of them were when I first saw the movie and honestly, I don't think that Dom looks very hot in the movies.

Yes well it's too bad that you haven't read the books yet. You really should. They're wonderful and I'm reading them for the third time now. But don't worry none of us think that we're better than you because we've read them. You'll find lots of people that haven't but want to read the books just like you and they fit in just fine. I just hope that you get around to reading them :)

I know what you mean about joining because you have no one to talk to about LotR. It's exactly the same for me. I think that you'll find just what you're looking for here! Welcome to A-U!!!!! :wave:

Hey Christie!
Welcome. I think you will find here what you're looking for: lots of LotR obsessed people. Like you, I've never met many LotR fans in real life. That's the reason I love this forum so much.
I'm looking forward to get to know you better!
