    We're on a tangent now, I guess. But Gimli cried at Balin's tomb in the book. It was a big moment. I thought Gimli rambling about the feast they...

    I also didn't like the battle with Smaug at the end, which seemed far too long for them to all survive, and made Smaug look weak. There were probably...

    Hello, Moderator type person - forgive me, for I have sinned! Seriously - I think I've really screwed up... I've posted something waaaaaaay too long in Showcase, but can't seem to delete it and post up something rather more sensible in size. I am really, really sorry... *sheepish look*. Can you, or one of your brethren, help me sort it out? Thank you! Ely xx
