This. I translated the runes on Thror's Map in the copy of the book that mom bought me back in '84...I've been waiting for a screen adaptation of this since '79 when the Rankin-Bass cartoon ran (on a local CBS channel in the Anchorage of my youth, IIRC).
i did the same thing...i also taught myself the tengwar alphabet as best as i could...even now i can still write my name in it lol but thats about it
First, much <3 for the Tengwar writing! That's excellent...I enjoyed looking at the characters in the LOTR appendices but I never did take the leap to writing 'em. I may have to do that someday...it would be funny to eventually teach my seven-month-old how to write Elvish, heh.
When the Jackson LOTR films were being produced in the late '90s I followed production details a bunch at http://www.theonering.net/. I was so psyched for the films I probably watched Quicktime renders of the trailers every day throughout '00. I'm glad I left my apartment long enough on July 4th that year to meet my future wife...but I digress. One of the first things I wondered was "what if he makes a Hobbit film someday?"
Many years later I'm following Jackson's Hobbit adaptation production details in a less fevered way...I think the following may be true:
Threats of violence. We take these seriously and will alert the proper authorities.
