Mae g’ovannen, greetings!

A little about me:

I'm an artist and a great fan of Tolkien and his works for many years. My favourites includes: The Lord of the Rings, The Silmarillion, The Hobbit, The Children of Húrin, Unfinished Tales of Númenor and Middle-earth along with the The History of Middle-earth and Letters by J.R.R. Tolkien. I consider myself a humble Tolkienist! I also try to read essays written by others with reliable knowledge as I recognise the importance of having different perspective on more obscure subjects in Tolkien's works. I have also studied some Sindarin and have a general understanding of the language. Although I have some degree of knowledge of everything in Middle-earth in general, my focus of interest (and fascination) has always been on Elves and their history and language.

I aim to help with the articles here by adding new sources or information as well as categorising their contents by sorting them into their correct versions in the Legendarium. I also intend to help with such articles by making them seem more objective and academic, free from personal interpretation or bias and avoid unnecessary conjecture if possible.
