    OK. Is it a) stupid b) futile c) too late to gender flip a portion of our Elves? There's no good reason many couldn't be gender flipped

      Yeah. That's common fanfiction material, right? Not sure we should go that way...

      As common as the same interpretation of Frodo and Sam, yes. I prefer to write them as intensely close, and let the reader/viewer draw their own conclusions.

    When we discussed the SilmFilm rating, did we mention cussing, or did we focus on sex/violence?

      To be clear - I'm a 12 year old boy and love to swear and all things cuss-worthy. It just needs to fit in context. And I don't know that we have rhay context.

      "Tolkien doesn't use swear words so we shouldn't" is not a good reason to avoid it. "Swearing modern English cuss words would sound wrong and made-up swear words can sound... cutesy" would be a reason to avoid t.

      Yeah, to a point, but...there's a *reason* Tolkien's characters don't use swear words, and it's not just because he was stuffy. Language is culture. It seems to me that the only characters who would use particularly harsh swear words 'in character' would be...orcs. I'm not saying we can't have some colorful language or slang. But I do think there is a limit before it sounds out of place.

      I suppose words like "maggot" and "filth" are used by Sam exactly where cussing would be warranted....

    Well, I had time to participate in the session for about an hour. After that, the execs were just about done with the announcements. :)

      Yeah, that was a long intro! I feel this wasn't an episode that could afford the shortchanging of the time, but I had to leave at 12, so I didn't hear how they resolved it all, either.

      It happens. But since it happened this time, I'm really happy that Richol posted notes of all that one needed to know. (And I wasn't too well prepared so I would probably not have had that much to contribute).

      Haven't clicked through to an article yet. Guessing it amounts to what we already have, not much new. Not a contiguous narrative. More Beren and Luthien, less Children of Hurin.

      I will definitely have to look at it once it's in the local library. Even an attempted summary of what the post-Lost Tales story of Earendil's voyages "would have been" could be awesome to have.

      I'll be honest, I was kinda proud of the reference. It is subtle enough that anyone who would find it absurd to use a Tolkien name won't get it.

    Did you know that 'boldog' is Hungarian meaning 'happy'

      "Boldog" also sounds like a breed of dog in English. So for the bilingual, it's potentially "Happy, the bulldog".
