Tolkien Tag by Nessíma Tavariel

An Unexpected Blog Party
 from "Arda Nessima" created this tag...i encourage you to go check out her blog!

1. How did you first hear about LOTR & The Hobbit?
   Well, I had to read The Hobbit for my Eighth Grade English class...and I think it was one of the best books I have ever had to read for school...but I never went any further with Tolkien's works in Middle Earth until this year.

2. How many times have you read LOTR/The Hobbit?  Or have you yet to read it at all?
    I have read The Hobbit and The Fellowship of the Ring once each, and I have read half of The Two Towers.

3. Would you name your child after a character from it?
    I don't know...maybe.

4. What are your thoughts on Tom Bombadil?  Do you think he should have been in the movie?
    I did not really like Tom Bambadil and thought that part was quit no, I guess I do not think he should have been in the move.

5. Do you have a favourite piece of poetry from any of Tolkien's books?
    Yes, this one:
The Road goes ever on and on,
Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow, if I can,
Pursuing it with eager feet,
Until it joins some larger way
Where many paths and errands meet.
And whither then? I cannot say.
6. Have you read any of Tolkien's work besides LOTR and/or The Hobbit?

7. Can you write in the Tengwar?
   Is that a language? I'm assuming it no.

8. Were you at all disappointed that Prince Imrahil wasn't in the movie? 
    Seeing that I don't know who Prince Imrahil is, that would mean his absence did not disappoint me. If he is from The Return of the King, I have not yet read or see it, so that would be why I don't know who he is.

9. What would happen if you and Denethor were put face to face? 
    I don't know who Denethor is either...sorry obsession is Star Wars, not Lord of the Rings...
But I would like to say that I would beat him in a fight... :)  If that is what this question is asking...

10. Would you rather reside in Edoras or Minas Tirith?
    No idea, sorry.

11. What think you of Éomer's armour?
    Well, i don't know, but seeing that it is the subject of this question, it must be something cool or special, so I would probably like it.

12. What do you think of Boromir?
     Boromir? That is the human guy who was part of the Fellowship in the first one, right? The one that still fought even though he had three arrows sticking out of his chest? Well, I think he was incredibly selfish at first, to want the ring for himself...but he WAS human... But I think I really admire what he did at the end of his life. He was very brave to help the hobbits get away...and I would only hope that if I was mortally wounded like he was, I would keep fighting for what I believe is right, no matter what.

13. Which is your favourite LOTR couple: Sam & Rosie, Aragorn & Arwen, or Faramir & Éowyn?
    Well, idk. I'm not one who is big on romance...Sam & Rosie are cute...although I have only seen the first two movies, so i don't know what happens in the last one. Aragorn and Arwen are the famous couple from LOTR, and their story is I like how Arwen is willing to give up her eternally-long-life to be with the one she truly loves. And I don't know much about Faramir and Éowyn since I have not yet seen ROTK, but last year my friends casted me as Éowyn for out LOTR likenesses...idk what that has to do with this, but I just thought I'd let y'all know :) So...I really don't know who my favourite couple from LOTR is...maybe Éowyn and Faramir since-in my experience thus far-their romance is non-existent... :P

14. Did you shed any tears when Thorin died? 
    Thorin? Is he one of the dwarves from The Hobbit? It has been so long since I read that, I don't even remember him I don't think I cried...sorry. I'm sure he was a great character, though.
15. Which is most terrifying of the following: orcs nabbing you in your sleep, giant spiders crawling out of dark tunnels and forests, Nazgul standing right over where you're hiding, or a ghost army that doesn't like you very much?
    Ummm, how about all of them. Or the Nazgul since they don't see me 'cause I'm hiding... ;)

16. How well would you enjoy life as a hobbit?  Would it be preferable to being something like, say, an elf?  Or a Ranger? 
    Interesting question...I really don't see myself as a hobbit...more like an elf...especially since all my friends just told me that I remind them of an ELF.

Well, I obviously was not the best person to answer these questions since I am not the biggest LOTR fanatic, but I still do love it...hope I did not annoy you too much with my ignorance on the, you may tag others, if you like.

Also, I would like to proudly display this:


  1. Hello. This blog looks interesting, but I CAN NOT SEE the text. It would be greatly appreciated if you'd change the text color or the background or both, cause they just don't contrast enough.

    1. Thanks...I fixed it. I liked the picture, but when I put it as the background, it didn't work out, except I couldn't figure out how to change it back. Sorry.
      Thank you for following my blog :)
