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.

I totally understand. I saw all three movies yesterday in a Trilogy marathon at a local college and I'm totally awash in a sort of melancholy feeling.....I've been obsessed with the Grey Havens lately....*sniffle*.

Absolutely. That happens to me a lot. Especially while listening to the STs. So much emotion. Wow.

*Sigh* - I know what you mean about the 'I want, I want, I want'.. we all know it's not the amount of merchandise that makes the fan, but I still feel myself getting an almost Gollum-like obsession with getting more stuff ... terrible, really.

I've been obsessed with quite a few things in my life and I also tend to obsession hop, which bizarrely leaves me feeling a bit guilty if I neglect or even abandon one of my fandoms. Which is a bit dumb I guess, but that's how I feel. I'm glad to have found LOTR though, even if I came to it a bit late.

Even more stupidly, I find myself getting jealous of other people's experiences - if they've been in the fandom much longer or have attended a premiere or met the stars or whatever - which is silly because we all know we experience LOTR in our own way, that it affects us all individually, and the fact someone on the other side of the world owns a very nice Sting replica should be immaterial. :)

Coming back to Gollum, I guess you could say I do 'hate and love' the merchandise. Cos I wantss it.

See all I need is my Elrond (he even looks like HW. How odd. The attraction is off the charts even 4 years in.)
