Royd Allan Reuel Tolkien is the great-grandson of J.R.R. Tolkien. At the request of Peter Jackson, he played a Gondorian ranger passing arms out to other rangers as they prepare to defend Osgiliath in The Return of the King

This is my favourite tid-bit of information regarding Lord of the Rings

Little!Legolas plays dress up with Thranduil’s autumn crown for August 27th’s Daily Doodle Sketch.
Tolkien is careful to note that children are precious to the elves, so my head-canon gleefully has Thranduil doting on his golden son and indulging him at every possible turn…

Okay, but you have to understand that I haven’t read any of the ASOIAF books - my only experience with the story is watching Game of Thrones. So it’s really not a fair contest.

Even so, definitely Lord of the Rings. The two stories are so different in style and content that I almost refused…

I think the biggest problem in comparing the two are their narrative contexts: LOTR is essentially a neo-medieval romance while ASOIAF is a realpolitik medieval history. People tend to simplify and juxtapose one fantasy with another but these two are really apples and oranges.

pipesandspiritsandtolkien said: Favorite scene from all Tolkien's works?

One if my favorites is from Fellowship and sadly didn’t make it in the movie - where the Company is assaulted by the wargs after failing to assault the Red Horn Gate. It’s a very supernatural and cinematic fight that would have made a cool scene but I can understand why they left it out

I’ve got a little time today, any Tolkien asks? :)
