I am an amateur Tolkienist who has studied Tolkien for four years (I'm under sixteen). I am interested in medieval history, and hope to get a Ph.D. in History. I have made up my own world with its own languages, heavily (perhaps too heavily) influenced by Tolkien, and have written several poems and started several books based on it. I particularly am interested in Tolkien's writings concerning the Silmarils and the early elf-lords such as Fingolfin and Olwë, as well as Tolkien's poetry such as the Lay of Leithian and Eärendil by Bilbo. I was previously known as 188.8.131.52, and many of my contributions were under that name.
