"Before the gates of Valamar Melkor abased himself at the feet of Manwë and sued for pardon, vowing that if he might be made only the least of the free people of Valinor he would aid the Valar in all their works […] then Manwë granted him pardon, and it seemed to Manwë that the evil of Melkor was cured."

Ah, family love is a powerful thing.

Okay, so I had this dream a couple of nights ago that was basically Lord of the Rings, but all of the horses were replaced with motorcycles.  It was pretty great because it was just pretty much exactly like the films, but with everyone riding around like crazy bike gangs. And everyone had bikes that were unique to their characters. 

Well, like it says on the ring,  “One hog to rule the roads.”

Coming July 18, 2014: THE SILMARILLION READ-ALONG

If you were involved with the Lord of the Rings Read-Along, you already know how awesome this is going to be, but for the newbies, here’s the deal: From mid-July to mid-November, we’re going to read through Tolkien’s The Silmarillion together week by week. It’s a great opportunity for first-timers and old fans alike to enjoy Tolkien’s works with other Tumblr fans like you while also sharing our own fanworks.

And in case that description wasn’t enough to get you excited, here’s a promo trailer I made for the event (the words are easier to read if you watch if fullscreen, sorry about that.) If you have any questions, you can find me at tolkienreadalong.tumblr.com - I hope to see you all there!

(Oh, and please reblog this, or make a promo post of your own - the more people find out about the read-along, the more fun it is for everyone, believe me!)

Here it is, that promo post I mentioned earlier! I know a lot of you participated in the Lord of the Rings Read-Along, but for those of you who didn’t I highly recommend getting involved this time around - I’m basing the whole thing on the Silmarillion Reader’s Guide, which some of you older followers will remember, and I really think the whole thing is going to be an awesome experience.

Whether you plan to join us or not, though, please reblog this post, and spread the world to your own followers - this is how news travels on Tumblr, and the more people that join the read-along, the more fun it is for all of us!
