World of the Ring by Jian Guo
Middle-Earth seems like it’s a pretty happening place: plenty of exotic locales to explore, elves handing out gifts, trees to ride when your footses ache, and treasure available only to those courageous enough to take it. If it ever existed in a Tolkien novel or note, then Jian has probably drawn it: his jaw-droppingly resplendent masterpieces tell just as enthralling a story as the novels they emulate… though in considerably fewer words. The lead image: “A Long Adventure with a Hobbit” is available in print form at Jian’s DeviantArt.
because that didn’t hurt AT ALL
The Road goes ever on and on
Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow, if I can,
Pursuing it with eager feet,
Until it joins some larger way
Where many paths and errands meet.
And whither then? I cannot say.

“My dear Sam. You cannot always be torn in two. You will have to be one and whole for many years. You have so much to enjoy and to be and to do. Your part in the story will go on.”
Me: I always wonder why there’s a penguin in Cirith Ungol.
Roommate: That’s not a penguin!
Me: It looks like a penguin to me.
Me: Which raises the very important question:
Me: Why would a penguin want to go to Mordor?
Roommate: It’s not-
Me: I mean, Mordor doesn’t seem like a very penguin-friendly climate…
Roommate: It’s not a penguin.
Me: Maybe it was on a penguin-quest? I would read that book. About the penguin who was also fighting the will of Sauron.
Roommate: Except that it’s not a penguin.
Me: I mean, the oliphaunt in the room right now is, How did that penguin get there?
Roommate: It’s not a penguin! It’s a crebain!
Me: Don’t be stupid, crebain aren’t penguins.
Roommate: I hate you.
5. A song which makes you happy.
I am not embarrassed that I have the LotR stage musical cast recording.
Well, not too embarrassed.
Because this song makes me happy and cuddly and want to hug all the things, okay? Sam and Frodo, okay? Like the stories they used to tell OKAY. OKAY? OKAY. Jeeze!
I mean, it’s not a giddy kind of happy. It’s a weepy kind of warm happy that makes me feel all “HOLD ME”, but still.
elijah: speaking of game-making, what was the name of the fake game that y’all tried to get me into?
billy, dom, sean: oh, tig! tag? tig! tig!
elijah: oh my God…
billy: tig was when we were filming weathertop, and myself and dom just started tigging each other, you know just touching each other, going “tig! tig!” just for like, no reason. and then, sean came over, and he started doing it as well. and then we’d say, “tig tig, tig tag” like, for no reason. and then elijah came over and said, “what are you guys doing?” we said, “oh, we’re playing a game called tig.” he says, “well how do you play?” and we spent like the next two hours making up rules…
elijah: and trying to teach me, and of course, I was getting everything wrong…
sean: he couldn’t follow the game, and the three of us were forever frustrated that he wasn’t following these new rules that we continued to make up…
dom: so we, the three of us, were constantly getting it right, and every time elijah tried a new way of tigging, we’d say, “no, elijah, you can’t tig on a tog, you can’t tag on a tig, you have to do an elephant impression if you’re gonna tig billy… if billy’s gonna tig you back, you have to get on your knees and take your trousers down…”
billy: how many times, elijah, you can’t double-tig a tag!
dom: and for like three weeks, he was saying how much he enjoyed playing tig.
sean: and he wanted to get the rule book!
billy: and remember we forgot to say it was a wind-up! so a year later he says, “why do we never play tig?”
elijah: and then they finally let the cat out of the bag. my whole world came shattering down on me when they told me that that was a lie. for a whole year, I believed it was a real game, and then they told me.”
dom: sorry, elijah.
elijah: and then, what else was not true? that’s what I was asking.
sean: it undermines the integrity of the entire relationship.
dom: that’s what I think.
