Aragorn can't join - by emotionally blackmailing Legolas to accompany him on the Paths of the Dead, he's firmly on my blacklist!

SPCL? Society for prevention of cruelty to Legolas? RSPCL if Aragorn joins!

Yay, Nelya! We can be founder members of SACL. I tried to think of something with a better acronym - I'm open to suggestions!

Naledi I'm with you on the Society Against Cruelty to Legolas (SACL)!! ;-) but who are we kidding--we read it all and love it anyway, despite the misadventures of our dear Elf!

I think it’s a sensible choice. Aragorn has a large backstory going back many years, so it was always going to be one of their first choices.

It's an expensive gamble they have taken--they have to nail this first season. Also the TolkienEstate is far more involved in this one I hear.

A quite big "if", I'd say. Just look what mess was made out of the Hobbit movie. Nowadays I tend to be a bit cynical. So I say the series is good if it will be at least not cringeworthy.

As well as Elladan and Elrohir and the Rangers of the North. It could be a hit if done right. Plus the Arwen love interest.

I am actually relieved the Amazon series is starting with young Aragorn. There is much canon content to work with, he's a familiar character and chance to see Glorfindel, Gilraen

And that's how they learn about the weaknesses of dragons! From the little guy Aegnor adopted.

Reviews For King Oak

This is just lovely, though I feel very bad about poor King Oak.

Thank you so much for sharing this.

Author's Response: Please excuse my tardiness in responding to your review. Personal issues involving my health and the deaths of two friends necessitated a break from my writing for a while. Thank you for your kind review, attention and support.

A powerful old tree, symbolising the passing of magical powers of yore, and the coming as the age of men, is a lovely idea !

Author's Response: You have interpreted my intentions exactly! Thank you for your comment and continuing support.

A loively and delicate tale, full of nostalgia and at that point of turning in Me, when the Time of the elves is over and the land is changing, I liekd teh notion that event eh Barrow-wights had gone. I have a sense of loss even with that, that magic has left and we are somehow the poorer for it. 

 

Happy Birthday.

Author's Response: Thank you, Ziggy. I have always viewed the magic of Middle Earth as something finite that the Elves and Wizards would tap into when performing wonders. But even before such an earth-shaking event like the War of the Ring, the Elves could feel their powers waning. They were beginning to, "...feel thin," as Bilbo Baggins had put it, "like butter that's been spread on too much bread." And so, even before Frodo became the Ring Bearer, the Elves were leaving Middle Earth forever.

In my timeline of Middle Earth, even Tom Bombadil and Goldberry will eventually depart. I'm presently working on the story, but it's still only an outline with no working title.
