    Session 6-11: Beren and Lúthien Finale

    I think setting up the Union could be a teaser right at the end of this season. Bombadil - I think it will be easier to set the cameo up in the frame rather than the main story.

    Beren

    I haven't seen him in action but I definitely like to see a Beren who can sing since he needs to sing the song for Luthien when he leaves her to go to Angband

    Surely we can make this work. If we can’t I still would like the POV shot if Turgon looking at the eagles.

    Session 6-10: Beren and Lúthien, Part 4

    Hence my suggestion for the Hurin and Huor (unnamed) cameo in ep 11 (from Eagles passing over Gondolin). Some other places to 'foreshadow' the trouble ahead come naturally from our reaquaintance with the consequences of the Oath of Feanor (things that the C-bros say in this season, also...

    Thanks Marie. Would this be Ep11?

    Sounds like the episode 7 discussion will happen in July some time. I'm going to be taking 4 months long service leave from end of July and so will have plenty of time for Tolkien-ing.

    Script Writing Procedure and Assignments

    Thanks Marie. I'm potentially interested in the post-Finrod song battle episode because I'd love to have a crack at the Beren/Finrod and Sauron/Luthien Athrabeth-esque dialogue. Also because intercultural communication is part of my day job. Depends a bit on the timing though.

    Session 6-10: Beren and Lúthien, Part 4

    If we manage to keep the focus on the theme of ‘Release from bondage’ with particular relevance to death and mortality, then the post-Mandos episode does not have to feel like it is added on. We started the season with what happens to Elves and Men when they die, and this itself follows from the...

    "Don't let me forget this idea..."

    I know this is way ahead of where we are with the script but I have an image in mind that I’d love to be incorporated if possible. When the Eagles rescue B&L, they fly over Gondolin but Luthien is too busy crying and Beren is unconscious so neither of them see it. I’d love the POV to switch at...

    Radio adaptation

    I still sing it around the house. I was singing it when ‘Other Hands and Minds’ were doing the Gil-Galad discussion. Also Sam singing ‘In Western Lands’

    Script Writing Procedure and Assignments

    I’m working my way up to being brave enough to attempt a script. I’m going participate in a few script outline discussions first.

    Radio adaptation

    I know what you are saying but I think they did some good soundscapes - like Lothlorien other-worldliness. And they had a great narrator and gave some descriptions to character dialogue. I loved the way they did the Battle of Pelennor Field with the alliterative song.

    Radio adaptation

    Could there be some discussion about the radio adaptations of Tolkien sometime? My go-to adaptation is still the 1981 BBC LoTR, which at the time I loved because I thought this was a brilliant way to dramatise Tolkien and leave scope for my own visual imagination. Different choices are needed...

    Session 6-08: Beren and Lúthien Part 2

    I was thinking the inappropriateness of Beren would be widespread in Doriath, not just Thingol. Daeron is a close enough friend of Luthien to stage an ‘intervention’ where others may not

    Session 6-08: Beren and Lúthien Part 2

    I’ve been used to thinking of Daeron as a jealous jilted lover but this discussion has me rethinking this altogether. I can now see him as a genuine good guy who wanted the best for Luthien. After all, having your best friend suddently fall in love with what must come across as such a totally...

    Session 6-08: Beren and Lúthien Part 2

    I think Daeron can compose the Lay AND die in the 2nd Kinslaying. I’m thinking of how Turin was the one to compose a song for Beleg as a kind of redemption. I think Daeron’s music making could parallel this.

    Human Rights and Dignity

    I’ve always understood the Ainur as equally ‘created by Eru’ but I think the real kicker is the connecting of feä and hroä that sets Elves and Humans apart from Ainur. This is what is different from Beasts, who don’t have a feä even if they share some biological similarities with the Incarnates...

    Session 6-08: Beren and Lúthien Part 2

    I like Mithuin’s account for Daeron’s love for Luthien. I agree he should not be harbouring hopes or intentions at this point of actually marrying Luthien, but be reconciled to their ‘just friends’ (and music collaborators) relationship. I like the idea of him being a mentor to Dior in Doriath...
