New journal (*fanfare*)

Attention! I have just set up a new LJ, which shall be devoted entirely to my LOTR ramblings. That will free up this one for more normal endeavors and solve some of the readership guilt/shame/inadequacy issues I've been feeling lately.

So, if what you crave is LOTR and nothin' but, add mollyringwraith to your friends list. In fact, you can even un-friend me here, if you like, and just friend me there instead. I won't be offended, really. I might not even notice.

Thank you muchly to ten_fifteen, who in a no-nonsense tone of practicality told me to snap out of the apologies and just do this. :)

I've selected 18 entries from the archives of this journal, which I will be posting, at the rate of 2 or 3 a day, onto that journal. Then all my finest LOTR work will be in one place and you won't have to slog through all that nonsense about politics, linguistics, and my daily life in order to find it.

And yes. Slash will be fair game on that journal. ;)

Mmm, I was wondering when you'd break down and just get a separate journal. ;) I think I'll keep you friended here, if it's all the same. I rather enjoy listening to you ramble. (Er...watching you ramble? No matter...)

And the best part is, I get to use the snogging hobbits icon.
You're welcome to do that, naturally. Glad to keep you around. :)

Hehe, I tried getting another journal for my LotR posts, but I haven't really used it. If people want to be on my friends list, they can damn well suffer through hobbit ramblings! :D Really, I think you should write what you want in your journal. It's not for others to decide. If they're that offended, they should keep scrolling. You know I'm not really a fan of slash (well...dudeslash, at least), but I still think your journal is fine the way it is...was...whatever. Sometimes I don't agree with what you write, but you have every right to write it!

Thank you for the vote of confidence. :) I agree, for the most part - I've resisted getting a separate journal this long because I figured people who friended me had to take the whole package, not just the stuff they liked. But I think in some ways I feel better putting things into their separate compartments. There are people who friended me just for LOTR, and then there are others (who I talk to rather more often) who don't care about it at all. My readership seemed so divided, I figured I might as well split them up.

Still, I could see the LOTR journal shriveling up and drying out after a few months - after ROTK has come and gone, perhaps. Even if that happens, though, it's still good to have collected all the "best of" posts into one tidy place. Makes it a lot easier to navigate!

Glad to offer some "no-nonsense practicality" and I'm happy you did not take offense to what I said (as is often the case when I bluntly say something to someone). I also just added the "ringwraith" journal to "my other friends" sub-section - you know, to lurk...

Heheh, you nut - the whole point was that you wouldn't have to read this stuff anymore. :P But hey, I'll chalk it up to your loyalty to our boy Samwise (er, Sean). There's Oscar buzz around his ROTK performance, y'know...

Hehehe - I said it was on my "other" friends list - the bootom tier of LJ Friends - the ones I only look at once in a blue moon :P

Anyhoo - I got some really swell Return of the King things in the mail today (a perk of being a teacher) - they will be heading your way, since I like you... (or do I like feeding the obsession, hmm? One of the images you will swoon over...)

Hella sweet! (As they said in N. Cal.)

At some point the obsession will subside, but not till after ROTK, at least. ;)

Admittedly, I originally found your LJ because of your slash parodies, but I stayed because you were *interesting*. Therefore, I will read both! ;D

Aww, thanks. That's a perfectly valid option too! :)

a split personality endears me that much more
well i for one, being new to livejournal but old to morreh, think that she has finally achieved that to which we all aspire: schizophrenia. i say hurrah for her (their) efforts. may she (they) be ever bountiful in her (their) newfound synchonicity.

hi morreh behbeh.
