"When winter first begins to bite, and stones crack in the frosty night, when pools are black and trees are bare, 'tis evil in the Wild to fare."
Bilbo Baggins to Frodo in The Fellowship of the Ring, "The Ring Goes South"


[edit] About Me

I am DoctorWellington, a huge fan of Tolkien's works. I am very much a beginner to this website, and though I most likely have many accidental errors, I am trying my best to help. I am very interested in all of Tolkien's works, particularly The Lord of the Rings (In fact I have lost count of how many times I read it). I also enjoy maps (I like to study maps of all kind, fictional or otherwise), and languages, mostly Quenya and Sindarin roots. Here is a link to my new screenplay for the Beren and Lúthien story!

[edit] Username

I suppose my username needs some explanation. I am not a doctor (a job I could never do, I am haemophobic) and my last name is not Wellington. I'm still not quite sure how I came up with it.

[edit] To-do

  • Chapters (especially those of The Silmarillion and other works; I have finished The Lord of the Rings)
    • Infoboxes: Add them
    • Tense: Most chapters seem to have been written in present tense; rewrite in past (including The Hobbit)
    • Links: At various points links are forgotten or reoccur
  • Dates: Add "other versions of the legendarium" with references to The Return of the Shadow, et cetera.

[edit] Favourite quotes

"Faithless is he that says farewell when the road darkens."
Gimli to Elrond in The Fellowship of the Ring, "The Ring Goes South"
"A man that flies from his fear may find that he has only taken a short cut to meet it."
Sador/Labadal to Túrin in The Children of Húrin
"Glorfindel was tall and straight; his hair was of shining gold, his face fair and young and fearless and full of joy; his eyes were bright and keen, and his voice like music; on his brow sat wisdom, and in his hand was strength."
― Description of Glorfindel in The Fellowship of the Ring, "Many Meetings"
"A fox passing through the wood on business of his own stopped several minutes and sniffed. 'Hobbits!' he thought. 'Well, what next? I have heard of strange doings in this land, but I have seldom heard of a hobbit sleeping out of doors under a tree. Three of them! There’s something mighty queer behind this.' He was quite right, but he never found out any more about it."
― Description of a fox encountering Frodo, Samwise, and Pippin sleeping out of doors in The Fellowship of the Ring, "Three is Company"
"Help now to repair the evil in which you have joined, and afterwards you shall take an oath never again to pass the Fords of Isen in arms, nor to march with the enemies of Men; and then you shall go free back to your land. For you have been deluded by Saruman. Many of you have got death as the reward of your trust in him; but had you conquered, little better would your wages have been."
Erkenbrand to several Dunlendings in The Two Towers, "The Road to Isengard"
