    Finished my Bear and the Nightingale series re-read, and am now working through some books that were Christmas presents to others, now lent after they read them.

    First up, Bill Bailey's Remarkable Guide to Happiness - other contenders include Bernard Cornwell's War Lord and Dan Walker's Remarkable People.

    Also, the Valar only fully hide Valinor after events unfold (deliberate vagueness because said events will be covered in the series) - so it's more of a final measure to make sure nobody can get there who shouldn't.

    Will we get that deal where wounds bleed and create massive pits? And that dude who wants to wrestle everyone? Or is that too early?


    Only in flashback potentially, as too early.

    I absolutely adore the Akallabeth, so I'm particularly excited we're going to see Numenor.

    Also I am here for getting to see the moment Celebrimbor realises it's all gone horribly wrong on screen.


    YES!

    Also, part of me wishes we would see older events like the Noldor crossing the Helcaraxe. We MIGHT see it in a sort of flashback opening with Melkor and Ungoliant crossing after destroying the Two Trees and what followed. If they show the "War of Wrath" as what opened the 2nd age, we might see Fingolfin leading his people across. I'm picturing an opening sequence and narration like Galadriel's in FOTR...which I mean, just get Cate Blanchett to read this one too...Galadriel was present at those events.


    Yes yes yes yes yes all of this. The opening to Fellowship of the Ring by Blanchett is wonderful, and I'd love to see something similar explaining Valinor etc.

    Impeached again! Have it.

    I know theoretically it doesn't mean that much but it's another blow to the ego. And I know they're just trying to save their own skins at the last minute but good to see at least some Republicans not goose stepping in line like the rest.


    I suppose it means something if he loses the Senate trial and is prevented from standing for office again. And I honestly think they had to do something - just hand-waiving away the attack on the Capitol without any consequence for him would have been mad.

    What Hoosier said. Loved your reading sessions on Youtube. Do you still do them (I ask because I'm hoping for more)

    Your videos on YouTube are awesome. It's always different hearing the voices in another person's tone and accent. Really enjoyed them, thanks so much!
