  6. CirdanLinweilin liked Mrs. Maggott's post in the thread Peter Jackson has effectively raped and destroyed my childhood.

    Oh, I watched them - carefully. And if you are of the opinion that Arwen's sudden appearance from behind that silky banner followed by...

  7. CirdanLinweilin liked Mrs. Maggott's post in the thread Peter Jackson has effectively raped and destroyed my childhood.

  11. CirdanLinweilin liked Narsil's post in the thread Peter Jackson has effectively raped and destroyed my childhood.

  12. CirdanLinweilin liked Eledhwen's post in the thread Peter Jackson has effectively raped and destroyed my childhood.

  13. CMParish replied to the thread Fingolfin Vs. Feanor.

    My guess is Fingolfin. The Silmarillion describes Fingolfin as the most valient of Finwe's sons. Feanor was the most gifted in craft but...
