Longing for LotR.... [Dec. 10th, 2006|01:27 pm]
The Starlit Sea -- A LOTR support community

[mood |anxiousanxious]

I know we haven't posted in here for over a year now, and I don't even know if anyone will see this...

Just had to say that when I got home last night, FotR was on TNT and right when I started watching it, I started crying! There wasn't even anything sad going on yet- they were in the Mines of Moria- but I just watched the rest with tears running down my face almost the entire time.
I don't really know why, but I figured those of you here would understand. Somehow I reverted back to the feelings of anxiousness, waiting, hope, pain, sadness, joy, and anticipation from those couple years that the movies were being released. It was kind of like I was going to have to experience "the end" all over again! Or I'm just crazy ;-)

I hope all of you out there are doing splendidly.

i know i'm new, but...

i can't watch ROTK, read ROTK, or listen to "The Grey Havens" or "Into the West" without crying my eyes out. I'm glad i'm not the only one, cos my grandmother thought i was nuts when we watched ROTK and she saw me sobbing when the Elves sailed into the West.

To me (personally) the loss of the Elves is the saddest thing. It's just that they're the oldest and grandest of all the beings of Middle Earth, and their loss, it will be something that will make Middle Earth not as beautiful a place. (i have a hard time getting my words out when i'm sad.)(as i am now.)

just some thoughts...

How do you pick up the threads of an old life? How do you go on, when in your heart you begin to understand there is no going back. There are some things that time can not mend. Some hurts that go too deep, that have taken hold.

I just read this over in lordoftherings and almost started to cry. I have lost my obsessive passion in the past two months and I want it back. I don't even know how to explain it...I kind of "obsession-hop" from thing to thing, and it moved off of LotR a while back. But I'm slowly coming back over to LJ and reading communities and quotes and listening to STs and it's making me so sad. I want RotK to be out now, so badly, and I want the EE, and I want behind-the-scenes of EVERYTHING. I want, I want, I want...listen to me, how selfish.

I don't even know what I'm trying to say or if I'm making sense. I thought maybe you guys would be able to attempt to understand it though, since this is our support area =)

Frodo lives.

Not all tears are an evil [Mar. 2nd, 2004|12:25 am]

[mood |jubilantjubilant]

I've cried so many tears ... Over Lotr, the books, the films, the movies, the stories, the people. It seems there is no end to my happines, sadness or my tears.

Last night was the One Night. For so many reasons that go BEYOND a gold statue. It was the grand culmination of a life's work; a journey. It was about the films, but also the books, about the way that The Lord of the Rings has influnced so many people, and how the making of the films has changed so many lives.

Three years ago, I looked forward to the One Night, and now it's gone, and I'm left feeling happier than I've felt in a long time, and sad as well. I can't really explain it, and I'm sorry if this post seems to make no sence, but this is a support forum, and I'm glad to have a place to just TRY and express my feelings about something that is, to most people, just a story. Or worse, just a film.

I'm so happy that angelislington got to enjoy this night in a manner befitting it; and I'm happy for all of the fans who got to be there, and that the cast and PJ, and Fran went to TORn's party. I only wish I could know that happiness. That feeling of absolute, perfect jubilation, and some other feeling I can't put into words, but somehow feels like peace.

Good night

It's really scary how much of my life is being put aside for LOTR. I mean, it even freaks me out sometime. However, there is just so much serenity and comfort in this other world; and it doesn't even seem made up anymore. I find that there is ALWAYS something more to be found regarding LOTR and I can't help but go looking for it. I know I should be concentrating more on "the now" and um, what we call reality, but do I really have to? Is this unhealthy? Hm.

Frodo's Lament for Gandalf [Feb. 2nd, 2004|10:17 pm]
The Starlit Sea -- A LOTR support community

[mood |melancholymelancholy]
[music |Annie Lennox - Into The West]

A deadly sword, a healing hand,
a back that bent beneath its load;
a trumpet-voice, a burning brand,
a weary pilgrim on the road.

A lord of wisdom throned he sat,
swift in anger, quick to laugh;
an old man in a battered hat
who leaned upon a thorny staff.

He stood upon the bridge alone
and Fire and Shadow both defied;
his staff was broken on the stone,
in Khazad-dûm his wisdom died.

Remind me that I can't get destracted by songs and poems of LotR when I'm supposed to be working....

Now I'm so teary and sad that I can't possibly concentrate on science!
