Have y'all seen this yet?  From PJ's Facebook this morning:

And yes, I typed all those names without having to look them up! *g*

But the point that isn't to pat myself on the back that I finally memorized all their names, but to ask if anyone knows of some good gen/het dwarf fic, either movie- or book-verse. Now that RL is calming down and I have more time for fanfic, I'd like to read some TH-based dwarf fics, but it seems like 98% of what's out there is slash, which isn't my cuppa.

If any of you know of a comm or archive that has some good gen/het dwarf fic, please let me know!

I'd been wanting to hear a long version of this song and this fellow's cover is outstanding.

Okay, yes, that was a rather lame subject header, but I saw The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey today.

Spoilage-y squeeing.... )

I hope to have a Hobbity sort of weekend, or at least, a Hobbity afternoon tomorrow, if it works out.  There's a speaker coming to our local library tomorrow afternoon, Justin Noetzel, who teaches British Lit and composition at St. Louis University. As a student, he sat under Tom Shippey when he taught there, so I'm very much looking forward to what he has to say about Tolkien and his life and influences.  There's another session in the evening, mostly about the movies, but with my mom's health being what it is, I won't be able to attend that one.  Still, I'm very much looking forward to the afternoon one. Living where I do, and with the situation with my mom's health, there's not exactly a plethora of opportunities to listen to Tolkien scholars, so I really hope it works out for me to slip away for a few hours to hear him.

Mr. Noetzel is a member of the Woode-walkers, the Grad Student Medievel Reading Group at the university, and they have a blog that occasionally deals with Tolkien, and today's post has a lot of links to articles and symposiums about The Hobbit. I've not had the time to look into all of them, but I'm sure they're very interesting.   He even mentions Emil Johansson's LOTRProject, which is an outstanding "family tree" of all the Tolkien characters (and an App I really must download now that I have a better phone that actually lets me use apps).

If I get to attend, I'll post a review of sorts.  I'm terrible at synopsising anything (which is a new word, by the way), so it won't exactly be exhaustive, but I'm going to take notes and hope I can put together something coherent.

I just really never expected to feel all fan-girly over a dwarf...

Anyone going to Comic Con want to pick one up for me? *g*

This is almost undoubtedly may just be an April Fool's joke, but just read over at tORn that James and Oliver Phelps are rumored to be playing Elladan and Elrohir in The Hobbit.  I admit, I had no idea who those two actors where, and then when I read they played the Weasley twins in HP, my first thought was, "Huh?"  But they've definitely grown up.  And don't have red hair anymore:

What thinkest thou?  If this isn't a joke, do you see them as the twins?

(And I'm always a little shocked when I see HP actors all grown up.  Especially Neville... wow, did he ever change.)

First published this day in 1937, leading us from Bilbo eventually to Frodo and a certain Ranger...



Maybe by the next anniversary, or perhaps the one after, we'll have a movie of it at long last!
