Umm well I did get a badge saying I wrote like JRR Tolkien, which is nice but I couldn't figure how to get it to come up on LJ [I've never understood the techno mumbo jumbo associated with these kind of things] so you'll just have to take my word for it unless this link brings it up! Below is the passage I pasted into the thingy to do it's thingy-what's-it. They were words I put into Elros's mouth and suitably Tolkienish I thought!
“That is so, but I wonder if it is enough. There is some dark secret in the past of Men of which they do not speak. I understand it to be the reason they came West in the beginning. But they did not escape whatever it was they were fleeing. Most Men, it seems, despair of things ever being otherwise, but there are those who still have hope and it is that which carries them through their many trials, small foundation though it might appear they have for such a hope. Remember, Elrond, not for Men is the sanctuary of the Blessed Realm where others of our race, even now, dwell in peace and great bliss. In spite of the defeat of Morgoth, I cannot help but wonder and fret at what this new Age will mean for our mannish kin.”
