Hey, all! I'm fairly new to this site, just thought I'd give an intro. I'm an obsessive compulsive LotR freak. I love love love Legolas, Elrond, Arwen, Haldir, Celeborn, and especially Celebrian, and especially especially Galadriel. She's my freaking hero. Here's my bio:
Elvish name: Asta Edhilya, Princess of Mirkwood
Location: New York
How I came about my Elvish ways: I'm almost ashamed to say it, but my Tolkienite obsession was spurred by the (in my opinion) awe-inspiring movies. After that I was enchanted by his delicately created and detailed world. I have since the first movie came out, read all three LotR books, am going to start the Silmarillion soon, and, in what little spare time I can cop, am teaching myself both Quenya and Sindarin, because they are both beautiful languages. I'm doing this with the help of the book "The Languages of Tolkien's Middle Earth." Yes, I'm a dork.
