The Gang of Five

It certainly has been a crazy year, hasn’t it?  Well, thankfully, a new year is upon us and here at the Gang of Five forum we have a new year of showcases, prompts, and themes to get the new year started in the right way.  We wish you all a happy new year, and we look forward to what you have in store for us this year!

For the month of January we have a new character showcase.  Please warmly welcome Littlefoot's Mother! :)littlefoot The character showcase topic for this month can be found here.

Also keep in mind that the December and January prompts for the fanfic prompt challenge is now open.  We are doing things a bit differently this season and allowing for people to either fulfill a monthly prompt or a suggested prompt during each month.  I look forward to seeing what you all come up with! :)  The fanfic prompt rules and list of monthly prompts can be found here.

BTw, the Hobbit will finally hit the big screen sometime in the next few years. While Peter Jackson won't be directing, He'll be producing it, and hopefully the story will be as good as the LOTR trilogy was. Although I'm not sure If I like the idea of making a movie to bridge the gap... I imagine Ian Mackellan will be asked to come back as Gandalf...

I heard it will be done as 2 movies.  I wonder if they'll cut the hobbit in half somewhere and do that as the 2 movies.  If they'll have the second one be a bridge, or if they'll add some scenes of what Gandalf was doing with the council of white meeting and throwing out the Witchking.  As I recall that is what Gandalf was doing when he kept mysteriously vanishing during the hobbit.

I got the Children of Hurin for Christmas tonight. A beautiful edition of the book with some illustrations by Alan Lee. As I do have a lot of stuff to read for university at the moment I don't know when I will be able to read it, but already I am looking forward to that day  :)

You meabn the Necromancer, which was the form Sauron took in the centuries before THE LOTR. The White Council did indeed act against the Necromancer, but it had no effect: Sauron had been long aware of the White Council and long prepared against thier move. He left Dol Guldor and moved to Moria.

Do you know if any of the LOTR artists ever made a picture of Dol Guldur?

I can never remember if the necromancer was Sauron or the main nazgul leader.  The same thing with the witchking.
