        I though you did, just wanted to check to be sure. Yeah it'll take several months until we get to casting session for season three. But that's fine. We will need the time.

        Yeah. But I think it's fine we're doing a lot of the work early: once we get into Season 3 proper, we'll certainly be just as active on the Episode Questions. We're really just killing time now, lol.

      So had my math major sister calculate how long Exploring LotR will take if we add one week every chapter... roughly 43 years!

      Logging back in this afternoon just drives home how much more ppl care about Feanoreans vs Fingolfin's and Finarfin's broods.

        I think you're right but there is also the issue of Curufin.

        One issue is that no one is going to immediately think that the kids of Fingolfin and Finarfin are villains - they don't need nearly as much defending as the FĂ«anoreans ;)

        (I was just referring to the fact that Curufin is supposed to look a lot like his dad. That made me post a few more messages than I should have done otherwise)

      Also, didn't Corey say in Season 1 he wanted burly elves? And now Hugh Jackman is too ripped?

      Do we get dwarves this coming season? Because I've got to warn you, I've buried myself in canon and not with dwarves over the last few weeks

        Yes, we will definitely get dwarves. I've been looking forward to it a lot and for a long time. We're going to have some great discussions, I hope!

        If we're going there - the thing I'm here for is Arvedui and his adventures in the north with the Lossoth snowmen, and the intervention of Earnur and Cirdan. All the rest of it is just leadup to that story.

        Haha, oh, okay, fine, then I will admit that I am here for Maedhros...and Finrod Felagund...and Gil-galad...and Elrond. Ulmo and Mandos tided me over in Season 1, but I am so very glad we have elves on screen now, and in particular Noldor headed for a disastrous fall. But it wouldn't truly be a Tolkien-project if we didn't leave work for the next generation to pick up!

      Should we make a betting pool as to whether we'll actually finish the Script Outlines on Friday? What should the odds be?

      Dunno where we'd fit this in, but I really want Ulmo to say at some point "the Music still echoes in my ears" -- explaining why he's so wise

      2. Marielle

        Yes! That allows us to tie in the idea of the music still sounding in the waters of Middle Earth, too. I like it!

      3. amysrevenge
        amysrevenge
        Yeah, if it's a good moment, then we can go back to the sound of water at any point later on as a direct callback to the Music without being explicit.

        Although when it comes to the sound of water, it just popped into my head the moment from the first Hobbit movie where the Dwarves have ruined the plumbing in Bag End...

        I've paused in that, other than trying to participate in the current class, since my History of Middle Earth books are in storage currently, and I don't get as much out of the classes without having read the text :(

        I'm lucky, I guess, in that my memory for printed text is just good enough that I can remember enough of it to get what I need out of the course despite not doing the actual reading and just relying on my last reading of them. Which doesn't feel like that long ago but was actually shortly pre-parenthood and kiddo is 6 now so...

        :) Wasn't completely successful in squashing that urge last night. But hey, at least I (mostly) limited it to things sort-of related to discussions in session 2-19, right?

        The best creative challenge is to find a way to justify applying something you *mostly* need for S20 to S2 or S3, so that you can talk about it. now. :)
