Thanks a lot Bellatrix. :-)

Just to let you gals know, in case you were wondering why I haven't added your bios yet, I've been re-developing the exisiting bios all across the site, so when I add yours everything will match. I'm going to be working on them this weekend, and you can see your words in all their glory. :D

Are we supposed to collect book info or book AND movie info for the bios?

No we should stay to what Tolkien wrote, so not the movies or anything PJ created/came up with.
So it doesn't have to come from The Hobbit only, but should be based on what Tolkien himself has said. And to some extent what his son has said, tool, although then it should probably be made clear who says what.

I'm done with Smaug and have sent it in, I'll move on to Beorn now! :)


*Edit*

I'm done with Beorn too, give me a moment to claim another character.


*Edit again*

I'll claim Glóin next. :)

Yep. Just copy+paste the entire bio you've written, including the information like name, meaning, etc and the history.

I can't find a name meaning for Kili...
although one of Tolkien's letters says that the dwarf names are like Icelandic or Scandinavian or something..

Actually, Tolkien didn't get the names Fili and Kili from his own mind. He borrowed them from characters in the Edda, by Snorre Sturlason.

So... how do I get the name meaning? All I have right now is a bit of the content, name, birth, death ( :'( ), race, parent and sibling..

As far as I've been able to find, there's no clear definition given anywhere of what the names mean. You could always just make a note of where the name's from, rather than what it means.

Basically, they're mentioned in a famous poem from the Poetic Edda, called Völuspá, which is about the creation of humans. Which is all Nordic Mythology, by the way, in case you're not familiar. The names are just mentioned, they're not described as characters or anything of the sort, but they are dwarves in the poem too.

Oh, okay.

I can't find a lot of info, so is it okay if I half-finish it and whoever wants to can finish it for me? Because now that I think of it, the bios are really good, and I'm not a really good writer, to tell the truth... so yeah. And I don't want a really awesome character to have a really lame, stinky bio.

I don't at all think you've done a bad job, but if you want, I'm happy to finish it up. I could write up Fili at the same time, since they're so connected. Let me know. Otherwise you could just send me a PM with what you've got and I'll give you some pointers on how to finish it?
