It is good to read of what happened to the people I love, the Rohirrim. To read of their rising and of the days when Eomer eventually came into his own was wonderful, and I am glad for it that this people amongst whom I would gladly and fiercely have lived, free and wild and dedicated beyond my will to many others, too live on as I would. <3 Rohan, forever!

It is done. I have read every single word of the Appendices without skimming and understood them, and learned from them. I even took the time to read through every single name, place, title and song mentioned in the last section where the Indexes are. I feel full, almost complete. *Smiles* In a way Lord of the Rings always makes me feel. At the same time, I want to rush back to begin it all over again right now. X3

A simple note: I love the fact that before Lord of the Rings was "translated into" English by Tolkien, he says that the names (first not last) that Hobbits had were masculine if they ended with -a, and feminine if they ended with -o or -e. That is just EPIC. Personally because I adore masculine names for female characters. <3 Even though that was changed in these books, the note is worth keeping in mind. <3

What a read! The languages are so detailed and intricate! I would love to study them fuller if further instruction could be found! It would be wonderful to learn to write in the languages of both the Cirth and the Tengwar Feanorean letters! Amazing. Simply amazing. When I was a kid, one of my favorite hobbies was to try to invent written languages, and here I see some so complete that it thrills me! Oh I love it!

It is amazing the detail included in these Appendices, and thinking they are only at times smaller notations on many other books-full of knowledge on Middle-Earth sends trills of excitement through me! I love seeing this information, and love how in-depth and detailed Tolkien was! He truly took Middle-Earth to a place above the reckoning of nearly every other creation out there. Perhaps besides Jules Verne. <3 ;3

*Lets out a huge breath and settles back against the wall, smiling peacefully* ...many years I thought, when first reading these books, that the end was too short, even with all the additional chapters after the completion of the Quest. But I tell you, read the Appendices and...your hearts will be full and joyous, even though sad, as all the greatest joys must be mingled with. *Smiles beautifully* It's worth it.

*Gasps with surprise, stunned to silence, then whirls back to Appendix A where it talks about the Stewards* I knew I was in awe of that man! Whoever he was! Thorongil... Now, reading Appendix B, and coming closer to the end of it...I find your name again. And I learn your true identity. *Brightens with awe and happiness* ...perhaps, my heart knew it was you.

I am happy to see what happened to Gimli and Legolas both. They, like all the Fellowship, were very dear to me, and the way in which some say they might have left Middle-Earth surprised me at first, but...makes only too great and too wonderful sense. *Smiles warmly* It is one of the greatest things that could have ever come to pass for Gimli. I am, eternally, proud of him, and love his character. <3

It is wrenching me! Long I have read of the history of Numenor now, until at last the love and marriage and days of Arwen and Aragorn were told. And now, they speak of their ends of days, and...! Oh God! It has been so long! I forgot how to cry before now it feels, because I cannot stop! How dearly and greatly I loved him! All Men loved him. *Wipes her tears and then smiles proudly* I will ever love him: Aragorn.

One page ago, I came to the end of this tale. Now, I will dry my tears and with a firm, deeply roused smile, read through all the Appendices. I have decided that they should be read, even again, though they be long and tough. *Laughs* But how can that be?! This is Middle-Earth! And I love it. And all its things I will endure for that love. And so, to the Appendices, and then, until the last page.

*Gasps and with a smile, begins crying* Ever I come to this same end, and expect it. And every time, I feel my heart leap in me and cry out with Life itself speaking. I -MISS- him! I miss -ALL- of them! I want to race back to its beginning and embrace them all and never let them pass from me! But all stories must come to an end, and again I have come to it. *Laughs and cries, but smiles at last* ...I love them. All.
