And now I'm thinking what I really need to do is create a kind of map to Tolkien's writings - what sources connect to which stories, that kind of thing. Or something. I just don't know I'm familiar enough with the Elves stuff to do that part justice, but maybe I could lay the framework out and let other people make suggestions and add them in after I'm done.
Or maybe I'm just being a geek and this is fine. Sometimes I'm such a hobbit, wanting my books with facts laid out neatly. GFIC exchange piece first, though.
