Many Partings Characters
These lovely pieces were done by Ebe Kastein. I merely provided her with the foundation pictures and she created these masterpieces. I am profoundly esctatic with Ebe's gorgeous creations. I hope you adore them as much as I do.
Seriously my Dad was a fan of the book and he had a secret love for Arwen although she is not the more present in the book at all! He argued with my mother to name me Arwen. Of course, my mother refused saying it sounded like the name of an extra-terrestrial. But my Dad won in the form of giving me Arwen as one of my middle- names. He always calls me Arwen and so do my closest friends. One of my first bed-time stories was the Arwen&Aragorn appendix (in French of course). To me there were my heros like Cinderella and her Prince are, you know what I mean? And since the heroine wore my name I felt even more drawn to that story. For something like 20 years people used to laugh at my second name (that became my first name somehow with all my friends and relatives calling me like this) asking what was my nationality or things like that. Since the first movie came out, I am finally free to be. Sorry to bother you with my silly ramblings. *lowers head*
No indeed, you are not bothering me at all. Its always refreshing to hear why a fan loves A/A? Their story is indeed beautiful. I have four music videos saved on my computer with them alone. They are one of my all time favorite couples.
Ah, they are all the clips of their scenes. They vary with the videos. The authors of the music videos chose some nice songs too.
I know what you mean. Mata, myself and one other A/A fan had to constantly defend Arwen on LOTR forums. After a while we dominated the threads regarding Arwen. But we havent been visiting those forums lately. Most of us are on LJ now.
I love everything about Arwen and no one can change that for me. She will forever be a woman I admire.
I got some videos, too. One of my favorite has been made by my friend Sonia with the song "I'm here without you". A real beauty.
I heard about how people mostly are towards Arwen on several LOTR forums and I am glad I never went there myself... I am too sensitive. It gets hard to defend what you love when you are emotionally involved and fragile.
I am so glad to hear that you love Arwen the way I do. Finally, a kindred spirit! :o)
Unfortunately no, I am not involved at LLT. I use to be a moderator on "Fate of the Evenstar" but even there you find people who spoke ill of Arwen so I just quite and decided to come to LJ among a small circle of friends.
What video did your friend make? Do you have a link?
Exactly! Ah, and thank you for your comment about the headers. I am off now. Fortunately I don't have to work tomorrow but I have an exam to study for. Grrhh! Take care! Enjoy the rest of your evening.
