So I still haven’t started the Silmarillion but I did nearly get into a fight with a teacher. He called Tolkien “overrated” and I told him to shut his dirty mouth. My friends dragged me away before we started debating. I will be on a train tomorrow so I will read some!
Hi guys! I’m Bumblebee, or Abigail if you prefer irl names. I loved Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit so much that I joined a Tolkien class. In said class I was supposed to read The Silmarillion, but uh, I didn’t exactly finish it. I thought this would be a great time to actually read the thing!
I was assigned Team Angband, and I’ll post thoughts as I read. Hopefully, I’ll write some fanfic as we go, but I think that’ll happen once we start reading about flesh-and-blood characters rather than anthropomorphized concepts.
- How I am explaining that I missed class via email: *literally crying* I'm really sorry, I messed up the times, it won't happen again. I fucked up, it's all my fault.
- How the teacher probably reads said email: *saracastic* oh, I'm reeeaaaalllly sorry that I missed class. I messed up the times. And by that I mean I don't give a fuck about you or what you have to say. It _definitely_ won't happen again.
