Haha, true...there won't be many used consoles when they've just come out. xD

I also believe I've read those two extra books, but like you, it's been a while...I think it was 2007 when I read them? >.>;; Definitely due for a reread.

I always wondered how many elves actually lived there by the end of the Third Age since so many of them were going over the sea...

And it was also a three-letter name. xD I'm tempted to go through the appendices and see if there were any characters named Sif now...

Yeah, sometimes it is best to wait for later versions of electronics instead of buying the newest ones right away due to aforementioned kinks. xD

I love that series, and I want to read the newer Lemony Snicket books...just need to make time to do it.

Some of them might have come from Cirdan/the Grey Havens, I suppose.

Gimli can't have the throne because he has to go on a quest. :3 Still think Dis should have taken over, though. And haha, Sif is from Norse mythology/MCU. xD

Ah, I must have been thinking of the older PS3s. (I didn't even know that they'd come out with a PS4 until my friend mentioned having one this weekend.) OTL

They are a lot of fun to reread. I should technically read a ton of other things instead...like all my library books... >.>;;

I wonder what the elves thought of the little hobbit kids who tried to look for them. xD

I actually pulled out my copy of Return of the King to check the appendices. Okay, so here's a good reference image. Balin looks like he's Thorin's great-grandfather's brother's great-grandson, so that's a bit of a distant relation. Dain, on the other hand, is Thorin's great-uncle's grandson, so he's a bit closer. Dis still would have been his closest relative, though, and Dis, Queen Under the Mountain sounds super cool. Females rarely seem to inherit in this world, though, sadly (yet accurately, I suppose...)

You can play PS2 games on a PS3, right? (But can't play either of them on a PS4, I'd heard?)

I'm...nearly positive about Old Tumnus. I think he was hard of hearing? It's also been a while for me, though...wait, never mind, that might have been a dwarf, not Tumnus, that I'm thinking of in the books. Drat. I know Old Caspian was mentioned because they were supposed to speak to him but got there too late and he'd already sailed off.

He did do a lot of Shire exploring, but I have the feeling his journey would have been different if he'd spent his childhood traveling. Then again, the ring probably would have been taken long ago if that were the case. Or overcome Bilbo or something awful. xP

Too bad the menfolk didn't stay behind with the kiddies. Also too bad Dis didn't become ruler after her brother and her sons died...

Was the staff one of the higher level items from last year? I have the feeling it was. xP Ridiculous Switchem.

They are! But then I'd have to decide on which system, but first I'd have to decide which games I wanted to play most and decide the system based on that... OTL

Huh...they might have. I guess I didn't think much about shipping when I read those books when I was younger. xD But yes, The Magician's Nephew would also make a nice movie, and I think the witch would be the only repeat. The Silver Chair would mostly only require a Eustace repeat, I think...? Though old Tumnus shows up in that, if I recall correctly. And old Caspian.

Yeah, getting custody of a kid would kind of dampen your adventure plans. Though imagine if Frodo would have grown up traveling with Bilbo. xD;;

I always did wonder why mothers/wives didn't go along on their quest. Were they all dead? Were they not warriors enough? I do wish there were more female characters in Tolkien, but at least the few he did write were pretty epic and badass. (A couple only in the Silmarillion/appendices/behind the scenes, though...)

...huh, they kinda do match, in color at least, if not quite in style. xD

Games like that make me want to buy a gaming system and work at getting good at playing video games. When I one day have lots of money and spare time.

Oh heck yes. Too bad Mr. Tumnus doesn't show up in much else in the Narnia books...kind of doubt they'll make any more movies, which is a pity, as I love The Silver Chair.

Bilbo was probably like, I've been through so much crap - almost eaten by trolls, almost eaten by Gollum, flown on eagles, spoken with a bear man, fought giant spiders, encountered a dragon, was in the battle of five armies - there is nothing in the Shire that can phase me, ever again. xD All of their troubles are so petty by comparison.

I was a bit confused about that, but I see what you meant now. xD;; I still think it's a bit sad there are no female dwarf characters.

Haha, so true...it's just different enough from the other blues that I don't think any match quite. xD I should try those from last year's Switchem game, though...

Ooo, that would be spiffy! (I don't play them, but I still want them to exist...is that bad?) xD;;

A Mr. Tumnus movie? I would totally be behind that. <3 Err...if not a whole movie, then maybe a Mr. Tumnus Christmas special? emotion_awesome

I think that thanks to character development, Bilbo wouldn't mind quite as much as he would have before his journey. xD;; It would still really suck to go back home and find all of your stuff getting auctioned off, though. And I like to think that the dwarves came to visit him occasionally. :3

Oops, we were talking about shipping, so I just...assumed... emotion_facepalm
Salathielly Report | 12/22/2014 3:28 pm
Yeah...despite the massive amount of blue in my inventory, I've found I really don't have anything to match that color. >.>;;

Oh well...should be fun anyway. I don't mind being alone. :3

Ugh, unfinished stories are the worst. I hate being left hanging. (I mean, in this case at least the story itself was concluded in the book/movies, but it's not the same as having the game for all of it.)

I think the first thing I saw him in was The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe as Mr. Tumnus, and as that faun is one of my favorite characters from the Narnia books (after Puddleglum and Reepicheep), it was natural that I adored him. I love his eyes for some reason - I almost never notice an actor's eyes, so that's weird for me. xD;;

Actor chemistry makes a huge difference. Even if the characters are playing friends or enemies instead of lovers, they still have to have good chemistry. And yes, there are so many Bilbo and Thorin shipping moments in that movie. You will be very happy. (Well, and sad, because a lot of it is sad.) I don't have any Hobbit ships, but I totally acknowledge that the material is there and rather blatant. xD (Also, first I've heard of Gloin and Bombur...I guess I can see that. xD)

The Switchem items would be worth it if I wore them more, but sadly...no. xD;;

Same - I usually would see my best friend and spend the night with her and her family, but that's when she's home visiting, and she will be back in Chicago this year, so...nope. And my parents for some reason go to bed super early, silly people. xD

I'll have to ask someone who plays the Lego game from the 3rd Hobbit if they included a certain scene that just screamed out "perfect for a Lego game" when I was watching it. xD I hope you get at least one of those games, though!

I like James McAvoy. xD I'd be a bit afraid of how babies adopted by those two would turn out, though, as they'd be telling their kids contradictory things. lol

I'm sure I'll think that as well...I know I saw that movie forever ago, but I can't remember it well enough to recall that scene. There were several scenes in the Hobbit movie where I saw instances of it, and I don't even ship anyone. It's just...there. xD
Salathielly Report | 12/21/2014 9:38 pm
The items themselves aren't worth it, but it was bothering the collector in me. Finally I just said eh, it's not worth it.

Aw, that's great! I have a couple of friends whose families I'm close to, but I've never done Christmas at their houses. (New Year's, yes, but Christmas, no.)

They seem like fun games. I could see them making one for the third Hobbit movie, because one scene in particular had me thinking LEGO game. xD

That First Class X-Men film definitely had me thinking the last pair you mentioned, up to 11. It was so strong. lol
