Well, it's time I finally updated this. BMath in Mathematical Sciences, but I don't like Math anymore. I have read the Hobbit, LotR, the Sil, Unfinished Tales, HoME X, XI and XII. I have read some parts of BoLT and of the Lays. My favorite work by Tolkien is the Shibboleth of Feanor (HoME XII), followed closely by Quendi and Eldar (HoME XI).
I have a really weird obsession with Finarfin. Ever since I read the 3 little lines about him in the Silmarillion, I've been completely intrigued by him. I have tried to read any little fanfic with him (some of them are great!). I started writing a biography for him (with Eärwen) in Spanish but I sort of got lazy and I haven't updated that story in a long, long time. It still lives in my head and I tell myself stories about it at night or during class. I roleplay as Finarfin on gaiaonline, his journal is much easier to write that an actual fanfiction, I'm ashamed to admit xD
Some of the people I like: Finarfin (obviously), Feanor, all of Finarfin's House (except Orodeth -and by the way, I consider him to be Angrod's son like in HoME XII), Ulmo, Tulkas, Celebrian, Celeborn, Elladan and Elrohir. I don't particularly like Fingolfin. I sympathize more with crazy!Feanor xD. I don't have any strong feelings about the sons of Feanor.
My favorite couples are: Finarfin/Eärwen, Galadriel/Celeborn, Galadriel/Celebrimbor, Aredhel/Celegorm, Aegnor/Andreth, and Caranthir/Haleth. I'm not against slash (I'm a big shipper in other fandoms) but it just doesn't click with me with Tolkien's work. I find it hard to suspend disbelief. Plus I have a really big extended family and cousin slash is really... odd to me xD
I'd love to be one of the Teleri. I interpret some parts of UT and the Shibboleth to mean that Finarfin spent a lot of time in Alqualonde, so who knows, maybe I'd run into him =)
