It would be strange watching any adaption for me, so used to fanfic, lol. I would be keep thinking of the pairings I read and scratching me head :D

I'd really love to see Celebrimbor and Annatar in the Second Age...and maybe Gil-Galad too...although it would be weird seeing him without his Istelion! ;-)

Not the Silmarillion, that would be a separate agreement if it happened at all, but the Appendices are open it seems

I'm always baffled by what is and isn't on the table, rights-wise, but if Christopher T has resigned, does that mean we could get an adaptation of the Silm (or parts of it)?

Article on The One Ring.net - Christopher Tolkien has resigned as director of the Tolkien Estate. This could change 'everything' to quote.

Royd Tolkien just confirmed it on his twitter account. No details other than that.

I should think they'll have actors falling over themselves for this. If it's done well the fandom will go boom!

The One Ring.net is a good place to get the latest.

I found the link. It all seems very vague atm. I look forward to hearing more once they've got news on story, etc.

Ooh, that's a different take on Legolas's origins! A nice idea that he's a gift, and Thranduil instantly forms a father/son bond. I like it when writers explore the links between king or prince and forest.



Author's Response: Thanks. I'm glad you like the idea. I always thought of the elves of the Greenwood as having a close bond with the forest itself, a symbiotic relationship creating the green magic which was equally as powerful if not more so than that used by the ring bearers to protect Imladris and Lothlorien. But then that's just my interpretation of what was going on. :)

I read this story on FFnet and can't remember if I reviewed it there or not...it was awhile ago. 

I love the idea of Legolas being a gift from the forest itself for this despairing Thranduil. It seems the perfect gift to uplift him and underlines his connection to his woods.

Perfect explanation for the eye colour changes also! 



Author's Response: I don't think you did review it there but as you say, it was a while ago and thanks for taking the time here either way. I'm glad you liked the idea of Legolas being a gift, I just wanted to explore a way of explaining how Thranduil had a son but no apparent wife and once this idea was in my head I couldn't shake it off.
