Well, I guess that this is what you have all been waiting for, the Istar Fanclub. I don't really know how to start this, I have had a look at several Fanclubs, and their first posts but I want to create this one myself, tongue.gif and make it different!

laugh.gif I have a rather silly suggestion. For one month we could do "Gandalf the gray" and then another month do "Gandalf the white." Ehehee. I mean, they are the same people and all...but, well, Gray Gandalf and White Gandalf seem different to me in little ways. Eh, I dunno. Anyway...yep. That's all I can figure out.

And I'm going to agree with my sis: Gandalf should be December's FotM. smile.gif

Good luck with the club Aiwendil!

Okay, of course you can join.
I shall add you to the members list now, tongue.gif .

And I think that the Gandalf the Grey - Gandalf the White is quite a good idea, although of course we shall have to see what the other members say as well. And if you have any more suggestions then please share them ..

Gaia, that picture of Sir Ian McKellen with the figurines is so cute! And what's that on his T-Shirt? 'Women want me...' heh.

I love him! I want to hug him.

Anyway, Aiwendil, I always thought that blink.gif meant that you were confused. Is that what you were asking? If not, I feel very silly...

If you mean from this message of mine:

' I'd just like to say sorry .. you know you know what this means, huh.gif '

Then it isn't suppost to be a confused face, the person who needs to know what it means does.

Hum dee. Been awhile since anyone's posted.

Anyway, I am feeling insanely geeky, so I wanted to ask about the names of the Five Wizards.

We have Gandalf, Saruman, and Radagast and when I was reading The Peoples of Middle Earth, Tolkien mentions the names "Morinehtar and Romenestamo." (For the second name, there are accent marks over the first "o" and the "a.")

He says this about the two wizards (it's really a note, I think, located in Chapter XII, included with the discussion of Glorfindel):

QUOTE
But the other two Istari were sent for a different purpose. Morinehtar and Romenstamo. Darkness-slayer and East-helper. Their task was to circumvent Sauron: to bring help to the few tribes of Men that had rebelled from Melkor-worship, to stir up rebellion ... and after his first fall to search out his hiding (in which they failed) and to cause [?dissension and disarray] among the Dark East.


Then Tolkien's son adds this note to his father's essay:

QUOTE
...my father wrote: 'A note made on their names and functions seems now lost, but except for the names their general history and effect on the history of the Third Age is clear.' Conceivably he was thinking of the sketched-out narravtive of the choosing of the Istari at a council of the Valar (Unfinished Tales, p. 383), in which the Two Wizards (or 'The Blue Wizards,' Ithryn Luin) were named Alatar and Pallando.


So, Aiwendil (well, and everyone else)--you seem to be the resident Istari geek, what do you make of this? I think it's fairly interesting, but I guess JRR Tolkien must have abandoned his ideas or something. Geez, the man was so confusing.

That's my question. (I really just wanted to stir up some sort of conversation in here. It's awfully quiet 'round these parts. laugh.gif)

Hey Cally.

LOL, been awhile. Yeah, this club is uh...not that active as you can see. But welcome to the club. Since the original owner is gone, I guess he wouldn't mind me welcoming you. (I really like Aiwendil and he went and deleted himself.) Now, get in here and stay active...sort of.

Oh yeah. Black, welcome to you too.

I don't know why...but I'm in the mood for wizards today. Guess that's why I posting here. Just finished watching RotK EE and have a new appreciation for Gandalf. He kicks ass! And he always has that weird twinkle in his eyes.

Yeah...uh. Well, I guess this club will, er, grow some mold until the next time I clear it through and post something uninteresting.

~ S

rine turelie, thanks for the welcome. I was wondering what other members thought of the scene in the ROTK EE when the witch king destroys our Gandalfs staff and causes him to fall from Shadowfax. It didn't happen that way in the book and I thought it made our favourite Istari look weak and afraid. As If!! Not a poular scene with many fans. Smalldiver, you are quite right, Gandalf kicks ass which further proves my point.

*waves tiny flag* Go Gandalf! Yay for Radagast!

Yeah...er,...uh.

I just didn't want to see the Wizard club at the bottom of the list, so I thought I'd bump it. I just finished re-reading The Hobbit, so I'm all "YEAH!" for Gandalf right now. And that hot elf king. Mmmm. But, elves don't belong in this club, so yeah. Go Gandalf.
