I give up on the world. If my generation is too busy straightening their hair and drooling over Orlando Bloom to care about global warming or the starving children in Africa, count me out! Am I one of the only intellectuals left? Are there any others? If so, we need to band together! Start a resistance! Overthrow the hold celebrity ‘hotties’ and chatspeak have on the others! Who’s with me?

No one? Right then. . .

There are five things you need to know about me:

1. I dislike Sues. I will not say ‘hate,’ because I reserve that word for actual people, not badly characterized fictional characters. I will tell you if your OC is a Sue. I take great care in making sure my characters are not Sues.

2. I am a purist. That means that I hold the books of Tolkien in highest regard, and greatly dislike when people mess with it. Meaning, they leave out important characters, they characterize canon characters horridly, and they create insane and impossible OC romances.

3. My favorite character is Ecthelion. And it is not because I think he’s good-looking. It is becasue he sacrificed his life for his people, even when wounded and almost unconscious. He did not quail from Gothmog because he was wounded. He met the Lord of Balrogs head-on, regardless of his own safety. I hold this noble warrior of Gondolin in highest regard.

4. I do not especially like Legolas. I know that he is a great warrior, but I like so many other characters in Lord of the Rings so much better. Like Gimli.

5. I am a fifteen-year-old sophomore.

I had a dream that I was in a car with one of my friends named Clark. I'm pretty sure it was a red convertible with the top up. There was an elf -- he was blond, so I'm pretty sure it was Legolas -- passed out on the floor of the backseat. Several empty cans of Heinken surrounded the elf, along with a full case on the seat. I distinctly remember it being Heinken -- don't ask why. I told Clark something along the lines of "Elf can't hold his drink." Then I woke up. Weird thing is, I can't drive yet, nor can I drink. And Clark has never read nor watched LotR.
