Lord of the Rings questions?
I will answer any questions about the Lord of the Rings you might have - books or movies. I can answer questions like "why didn't Saruman know better?" "WTF is a palantir?" "how come all the elves are leaving Middle Earth and where are they going and why?" "what kind of a being is Gandalf?" "why is Denethor in charge of Minas Tirith and not Aragorn?" and "omg how did that giant spider get there?"
Training & Qualifications
I've read all the Lord of the Rings books, as well as *almost* all the other related works by Tolkien multiple times. I've written some academic work on Tolkien, mostly for my own amusement. I have also engaged in vigorous scholarly debates both online and in person on these topics with people who are just as nerdy, if not more so, than myself, which has given me a broad perspective on these topics.
Availability & Preferences
I ALWAYS have time to talk about Lord of the Rings.

About Lori Arend
I'm in college at the age of 39, sitting next to a bunch of 20-year-olds every day. Rather than finding it exhausting, I find it exhilarating. I never quite grew out of naive, youthful idealism, so th...e kids and I have a lot in common. I'm very dedicated to writing, probably more so than is good for my future career prospects, but I'm also a staunch believer in riding things till the wheels fall off, so here we are. I will critique your writing FOR THE GODS. I do it for fun in my spare time sometimes, that's how much I enjoy whipping essays into shape. I'm a dog person. That was a non-sequitur, but I really love dogs. I used to work as a trainer for a rescue, so if you need dog advice, I got you, boo.show moreOpen to other proposals
