The (Cyber) Bag of Weasels

"About as much fun as a bag of weasels"...when I first saw this Irish adage, it made me think of the life of a writer: sometimes perilous, sometimes painful, certainly interesting. My paper journal has always been called "The Bag of Weasels." This is the Bag of Weasels' online home.

What do you have in common with Tolkien's characters? Here are my responses...and if you think of one that I don't, feel free to add to the list in a comment.

Of course, because it's *me*, they are mostly First Age/YT characters :)

First, the obvious: Finrod Felagund: Well, we have the same nickname ;) Besides that, we are both blonds. We both tend to be overly devoted to our friends, putting others' interests before our own.

Turgon: We both like to live in our own little world. (But we will come out--for the right reasons.)

Feanor: We are both high-strung. We tend to take things personally when, perhaps, we should not. We both tend to become overly absorbed in our work. We are not trusting of authority. We tend to be mouthy and both have been known to call people "jail crow of Mandos."

The Valar: We're all awed by Elves!

Elrond: We both love books and libraries.

Ecthelion: By Ecthelion, I mean the Elf, not the man who stole his name in the Third Age. We both have interests in fountains. Of course, his fountain has water in it while mine has ice cream! Plus, if I were to do something heroic--like saving a city--I would probably also follow it up with something stupid. Like drowning in my heavy armor.

Balrog: If you've ever seen me when I get hungry and my blood sugar's low, then you'll understand the connection.

Nerdanel: We've both been called unattractive at points in our lives. (For the record, I was elementary age.) We are both proud of our physical strength: I used to be able to carry sixteen gallons of ice cream at a time! In some places in the world, this is a handy skill ;)

Elves: When I first heard of the sea-longing, I said, "But of course...." I have had sea-longing my entire life.

Maglor: I'm usually the pansy in the group going, "Now, that's not nice!" Our ethics often trump logic. Silmaril theft or everlasting darkness? Unethical choice or everlasting darkness? Hmmm....

Finwe: I seem to get stuck with the job as mediator, even when I don't want to be, between the Feanors and Fingolfins in my life.

Laiquendi: We all love trees! Yes, I am a tree-hugging dirt worshipper ;D

Luthien: I completely understood why she forsook immortality for love.
  • You alreday told me who I remind you of, hehe, I can relate to your descripton of her for yourself too, as well as the one you gave her for me. I can see quite a bit of me in her.
    • Nerdanel is an absolutely fascinating character to me. She gets like two mentions in The Silmarillion proper--always as the "wife of Feanor"--but Tolkien made a lot of notes about her that are scattered through his other post-humous works, and she turns out to be quite complex.

      Devoted to the Valar...and married to the man who defied them.

      A craftswoman, a wife, a mother...of independent spirit and yet obedient to the Valar.

      I never get tired of writing about her. As you can probably surmise :)

      Oh, I might not have your icon first thing tomorrow, as I am ready to drop from exhaustion about now....

      New character:
      Miriel: We are both about to drop from exhaustion right now ;)
