  1. Name: Real: Canafinwë Macalaurë /Þindarised form (best known): Gonfin Maglor /Alias: Cain Fineas MacLauren Species:Calaquendi eldalie Age:? Beyond ancient Gender:Male Appearance:These were all drawn by Jenny Dolfen or Gold-Seven, an amazing, incredible, artist. Alliance: (For or against half breeds?)Against Powers: (only three if a half breed, otherwise state. No powers for humans. >_>)He's a full magical creature... Sort of. His powers are = his voice. Music is among the greatest of his people's powers and they can do everything from casting illusions to trances to shapeshifting with it. Some of these can be very difficult though. He is stronger and more agile than men, something like a gymnast. He is immortal. He also owns a cloak that can turn its wearer into a shadow and can put enemies to sleep. On rare occasions it has allowed its user to fly. The powers of the cloak are separate from his own. History:Maglor was born when the trees shed their light upon the earth and the moon and sun were hidden behind the mists of Ulmo and Manwë. For time he lived in peace and bliss. Here he wed Veuralindë his wife and all was joy in their eyes. Then up came Fëanáro, father of Maglor, and he raised his sword against his brother - for dark words, spun by evil had caused him to believe that Nolofinwë had turned against him. In anger the Calar, lords of Aman, turned upon him, for never before had weapons been seen in the Blessed Lands. To Formenos they exiled him and his kin and there for twelve years they remained. In the twelfth year Manwë ordered Fëanáro to come beofre him, there to speak with Nolofinwë. In this moment Melcor, most evil, struck Formenos. Finwë father of Fëanáro he slew and the three great gems, the Silmarilli, most dear to Fëanáro's heart he stole. The trees his servant Ungoliant poisoned and darkness spread across the world. But a greater darkness took Fëanáro's heart and he swore a terrible oath to seek his Silmarilli always. But a greater oath swore his sons, to seek ever the Silmarilli and to slay all who sought to stay them, and Maglor son of Fëanáro swore beside his brothers. Strong was the pull of their oath and ere long blood of their kin stained their hands. Then came Namo, Doomsman of the Valar, and he spoke unto them a great doom. "Tears unnumbered ye shall shed; and the Valar will fence Valinor against you, and shut you out, so that not even the echo of your lamentation shall pass over the mountains. On the House of Fëanor the wrath of the Valar lieth from the West unto the uttermost East, and upon all that will follow them it shall be laid also. Their Oath shall drive them, and yet betray them, and ever snatch away the very treasures that they have sworn to pursue. To evil end shall all things turn that they begin well; and by treason of kin unto kin, and the fear of treason, shall this come to pass. The Dispossessed shall they be for ever. ..." But the mind of Fëanáro was set and he would not heed. Soon the Doom struck, for Fëanáro believed still that Nolofinwë wished him ill. In secrecy he set forth upon their stolen ships, in anger he set them aflame. But the youngest, Umbarto of the Ambarussa remained aboard and was slain. Soon Fëanáro and his people were set upon by the forces of Melcor whom they named Moringotho, Morgoth. In fierce joy Fëanáro raced after the fleeing remains and was set upon and soon slain. But Melcor came to the sons of Fëanáro and spoke words of peace and promised to surrender. And Maitimo, eldest of the sons, agreed though he planned for betrayal and took many warriors with him. But Melcor brought more and the forces of Maitimo slain and Maitimo himself made captive. Then Macalaurë was named king and reigned for a time withe aid of the third born, Tyelcormo. In this manner he remained with his folk until the coming of the hosts of Nolofinwë and the rising of the moon. In this time the cousin of the sons of Fëanáro, who's name is recalled in song as Findecano, arose and sought his cousin Maitimo. In this he succeeded but the bond upon Maitimo's wrist could not be released. Then did Maitimo beg Findecano for death; but this his cousin refused to do. He took up his blade of sharp steel and struck the arm at the wrist. Then was Maitimo freed and in later times he learned to wield a blade with his left hand greater than ever his right managed. And Maitimo gave over the kingship to Nolofinwë, for he was the father of Findecano in who's debt Maitimo now stood. Then were the people at peace. In later times Maitimo called for against Melcor; but in this he failed. There was Veuralindë slain and swore before Eru that never would she leave the halls of Mandos. For she saw the great Doom that lay upon her husband and she did not wish that he live eternally alone. But this did not last for the oath called to the sons of Fëanáro and drew them ever against their own kin. Twice more did they slay their own: the first at Doriath where Tyelcormo fell, and Carnistir and Crufinwë also. But the Silmarill was not regained. Then did they strike Sirion and there fell Pityofinwë, elder of the Ambarussa, and the Silmarill was taken beyond the world where the brothers could not reach. But good came of this last battle, for Maglor took the twin sons of Earendil and raised them as his own; in this manner was strength and goodness restored to his heart. But the Oath drew ever at the brothers and at the end they were forced to slay once more for the Silmarilli. The last two were captured by Eonwë herald of Manwë and lay in his tent. These the brothers stole like things thieves in the night. Many were the swords raised against them, but Eonwë ordered them freed for he saw that soon Fëanáro's sons would see their folly. So it was, for the evil the brothers had done in fulfillment of their oath had stolen away their birth right; the holy stones could not bear their touch. Then Maitimo flung himself into a fiery gorge and Macalaurë cast his gem into the sea; and there he wandered for many ages and came never again among his kin. Through the second age he wandered and knew not of Mairon's rise. The death of Celebrimbor his nephew he heard only distant rumors. The fall of Numenor he saw, but did naught, for nothing could he do save watch and mourn. The third age passed in peace, save for the last few years; but of this Maglor knew not. But he felt the passing of his people and knew that soon he would remain alone. At the end of the fourth age a call came to him, and it was the voice of Eru. Lead by this voice he fled to a land where the great waters that engulfed the world did not reach. The fifth age he spent often in this land, but he could not remain. For near the end of fifth age the children dwelling in the Land rose up against their brothers and kin and this was too close to what had come before and Maglor fled before it. The sixth age he passed in wandering. Near its end he was captured and placed among the Children of Roads. Those who captured him branded him and placed him in their camps of death. Near the end of this time he saw death coming for those in this camp; a fence of sharp wires that held a great storm he leaped to enter in to the encampment of the Children of the Book, who had once dwelled in the Land. His arm he struck that the brand might be changed and remained with the Children until the war was done and the age with it. In the seventh age he came to dwell among the Atani as one of them. His voice allowed him great fame and he enjoyed it greatly. More, he enjoyed the 'medicines' of men which allowed him to forget. In this time he met a mortal woman and they were wed. Through her love he set aside the 'medicines' and life became light to him once more. To them were granted three children and he loved them dearly. But a great war awoke and his wife was a soldier. In this war she was slain and a hatred grew in the heart of Maglor for those who had slain her. To those she served he came them, and spoke many words and named himself loyal and begged that he might destroy those who had slain she whom he had loved. This was agreed upon. Though law might name him one of them in his eyes this is false. For he is the last of his kind on our earth. Captive or free?:Free Other: The difference between his people and ours is almost entirely spiritual. Despite his leaf shaped ears his DNA reads human so he is free. He is currently working for the government as a double agent to find secret bases of the Myths and half-breeds. Despite being Peredhel his daughters are mortal as they lack the choice of Luthien.

  3. Err... handsome tough guy with good heart. though Ford DOES do it REALLY well. 'I am your Father' cliche. Great when Lucas did it for the first time. Now, stop copying people. Love story tragedy= good guy gos bad. There has got to be a better reason. (I liked Marvel's, even though that was part of it... But it was more everything on top of everything for Magneto.) Other cliches.... Hmmm.... Movies ruining the books. Grr... Why do they have to do that? Bad guy wants to take over the universe. Don't they EVER think of anything else????
  4. I believe in general that names have meaning. As for stories... If the perfect name hits, go with it. You don't really have to look. The perfect names just find you. And they don't always mean what people think... If you want a name with meaning try for an archaic or relatively unknown language. That way, die hard fantasy lovers and fans will get it and the rest wouldn't really care anyway. Or you COULD use a generic name, but that's just boring...
  5. Peace is a lie quote is from KotOR. Then Karpshyn quotes the character he created in a book he writes. Loved this last line in RoS "The dark is generous, and it is patient, and it always wins - but in the heart of its strength lies its weakness: one lone candle is enough to hold it back. Love is more than a candle. Love can ignite the stars." Always feels very inspiring. "Give me Liberty or Give me Death!" Patrick Henry "Oh! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand Between their loved homes and the war's desolation, Blest with vict'ry and peace, may the Heav'n - rescued land Praise the Pow'r that hath made and preserved us a nation. Then conquer we must, for our cause is just, And this be our motto--"In God is our trust." And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave." Fourth stanza Star Spangled Banner, Francis Scott Key 0: A robot may not harm humanity, or, by inaction, allow humanity to come to harm. 1: A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm. 2: A robot must obey any orders given to it by human beings, except where such orders would conflict with the First Law. 3: A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law. (Three laws of Robotics + the Zeroth Law, Asimov) Very Important Quote "My name is Max Eisenhardt. To whoever finds this, I'm sorry. Because I'm dead and now it's up to you. Tell everyone who will listen. Tell everyone who won't. Please. Don't let this ever happen again." Marvel Magneto Testament, written by a 14 year old boy who will someday be Magneto, while serving in the Sonderkommando in Auchwitz-Buchenwald. WE CAN NEVER FORGET!
  6. Well, I'm writing a fanfic where Harry, Dudley, Tom, and Salazar (yes, I'm talking about Slytherin, but he doesn't know that...) live with Petunia Dursley. I was able to change a lot personality wise because I started the story when Harry and Dudley are four. Tom gets de-aged, (note: diary Tom), and Sal shows up as an eight year old after Petunia runs him over when he apparates in front of her car. Godric will show up as a thirteen/fourteen year old at the end of the third book. Before that he's an adult. I've written one 23 chapter fic and am working on the second and have outlined the rest. It is about the above BTW. And surprisingly, people actually like it. What do you know. I did it because no one else had... Three other fics that have yet to be written: Fire Burn and Cauldron Bubble- sixth year fic. Slughorn says no so Albus hires Sal... This is a much darker Sal than my usual. Baby Snake Steps - Sal is de-aged and is raised by Godric. Who needs a break and sends the eight/nine year old to Hogwarts. Sal is NOT happy. Fifth year fic. Mirrored Disaster - the Founders reborn with a twist: Godric and Salazar are identical, mirror image twins. Oh, and they're spoiled, bratty Americans who want nothing to do with England or Hogwarts!
  7. Who is your favorite Weasley twin? The twins need each other. Remove one and it isn't the same. I love them together or not at all. Did you want Fred,Tonks,Lupin, and Mad-Eye to die? NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What house would you be in? Ravenclaw Should've Kingsley stayed Minister of Magic PERMANENTLY? Only until the next ellection. Then he should run for the position. Otherwise there would be a dictatorship. What did you think of the Potter,Diggory,and Chang love triangle? Rowling needed filler matterial, and/or her muse deserted her leaving that idiotic dribble behind. Should Hagrid and Madame Maxime elope? Yes. Do you believe all of Harry's triumphs were bogus or assisted with? No, they were not bogus, and yes he had help, but don't we all? Who was your least like teacher? Trelawny, she couldn't teach. When you heard about Snape's *love* did you feel sorry for him? Very, but mostly I was awed and impressed. That kind of devotion is extremely rare. When Dumbledore and Sirius died did you cry? No, I raged at Rowling instead. Then I cried. Did you like how they portrayed the fifth movie? I was so sick of the movie portrayals that I never watched it... If you were Harry would you want to kill Cormac McLaggen after that horrific Quidditch match? No, but I WOULD want to beat him up a bit. RonxLavender,,, Good or bad Absolutely NOT!!!! RonxFleur...Good or Bad Look at the above What is your favorite spell,charm,jinx,or curse? Reparo and Accio. So I can find all the things I lose and fix all the stuff I break. What is your favorite magical subject? Potions and Herbology How many times have you read the HP series? Third book- dozens. The rest-varies. Would you make a Horcrux if a person asked you to kill them because they were dying? No, because I would not kill them. I'd try to save them instead. If so what would you make it out of? I wouldn't, but if I would... a moving picture. Or a phoenix...
  8. The problem with the amazing Xanth books is that - despite the author's warnings - everyone thought they were for kids. Some of them are, but a good chunk are not. And there are so many that I can't find them all! I've read all the ones I could find, Adept - which I own - and IofI. If anyone knows where I can get the one about Nyx let me know! Only one I can't find. They really are amazing. Never heard of Mode, but I know what I'm going to reward myself with once the semester is over...
  9. I am sorry to hear he's dead. I really enjoyed his books when I was younger. The innocent simplicity of good versus evil made them a refreshing breeze in a world full of gray.
  10. Read the stuff I added. Do NOT get why Sal's line died out.... Makes NO sense. Marrying cousins is not an excuse as all European Jewry is descended from 15! families, and we're still around. Neville is a true Gryffindor. His courage is hidden deep down, but when push comes to shove it's there. Where do we see that takeover? Because I sure didn't notice one taking place... The leaders would have been Harry and co, none of whom is known for being diplomatic. Besides, laws almost never get removed easily. It can be very difficult. And retaking the ministry would just make things worse... That's what USUALLY happens when you overthrow the goverment, and that's what they'd be doing. Crabbe does NOT belong in Slytherin. Why is he there? And Harry's whole year almost never acts like they are Slytherins. Her fans get her snakes better than she does. Note: I AM a fan. I wouldn't do this if I wasn't...
  11. And where do we see this? We come to the station and everyone is happy. The first war they didn't get anything. This war they had control of the Ministry. You have to wonder how they got rid of the laws so fast. Considering Rowling's ministry, that just doesn't make sense. And it wouldn't have been the ones devoted to him that continued it; it would be the ones who could prove they were forced and it would be political warfare. And her Slytherins are so UNSlytherin it's ridiculous. Aside from Snape they are not: cunning, independant, shrewd, have many self-preservation skills, etc. They are ambitious, but not that much. Most of them are happy being Voldy's toadies. Some of them are complete idiots, and clearly DO NOT belong in Slytherin house. As for blood purity; the hat only mentions it in fifth year, most likely because it would be dangerous for muggle borns to be in Slytherin at that time. We KNOW there are muggle born Slytherins, so that is clearly not a question. ("There aren't many mudblood Slytherins." Greyback to Harry.) Therefor blood purity cannot explain why there are so many unSlytherin Slytherins. How's that for completely contradicting herself, as she does this books one through seven. Then there is a complete lack of explanation for wizarding culture. She ignores the other major countries, (like the US, who clearly has a different society simply because there is no nobility), doesn't tell us a thing about the ones she DOES show, ignores history, (you realise William the conqueror was taking over England when Hogwarts was built?), has exactly three Jews and no Muslims in her school, (and that's assuming the Greengrass sisters are Jewish, BTW), doesn't give a rational reason why someone as rational as Salazar acted so irrationally, her Hufflepuffs don't always act in accordance with their house values, there is NO WAY Tom was Sal's last descendant, (proof: all European Jewry stems from about fifteen families and they ALL married within that group for centuries. Despite pogroms, the Crusades, the Holocaust, etc. the descendants of those famillies are still around. Wanna explain why this wouldn't apply to Sal, especially since we know the heirship can pass through the female lines?) Or in other words, once you get past the surface, Harry's world DOES NOT make sense.
  12. Why did the war end with Voldemort gone? The purebloods should have kept fighting; it would simply have made more sense. They'd gotten so far ahead with their agendas, so why stop? That never made sense to me. Marvel's inability to decide if Magneto is good or bad. This is a REALLY iritating plot device. First he's bad, then they say he's bad but also good, then he's good, then bad again, and now he is WHAT exactly? I'm not sure... Also the attempt to retcon his origins. He's Jewish. Period, zeh hu. What were they THINKING?! At least they came up with perfect name for him...After WAY to many years, that is!
  13. Sam getting the ring at the end of Two Towers and Frodo losing a finger and Gollum saving the day in Return of the King. Also the story not ending right after they win. Everyone dieing at the end of Chronicals of Narnia. Yech. Hated that. Wanda saying "No more Mutants" and Magneto's inability to decide which side he's on... Everytime he switches it's what?! The discovery of his real name... And the fact that it is ABSOLUTELY PERFECT! Eisenhardt=Iron hard. Max is most likely Moshe in Hebrew, and we all know what Moses did...
  14. I liked the first few, but after five the quality began to fall. Actually, it started to fall during five, but if that had been the end of the series it would have been okay. As it is...
  15. Tolkien was basicly writing a ballad style history. It can be really hard to read his books, but I read them in junior high so that is no excuse not to. He really changed the face of fiction; when we think of elves we think of Tolkien's version. He created his own language, Sindarin. I'm currantly teaching myself the language... All his books and stories tie into each other. I love the way he gives you that feel of history. I also think the movies did a good job of bringing his vision to the big screen. Nothing like the books though... Books forever!
  16. I wrote a 23 chapter HP fanfic... Not sure if that counts! LOL! But I'm still going to complete all seven years with Harry, Dudley, Tom, and Sal. And Godric shows up in third year. Giggles. Really though, I'd love to write a novel... But first I have to write my term papers. Groan.
  17. I LOVE the Wheel of Time. I started it in ninth grade and have been in love ever since. Jordan hints at EVERYTHING. Everything is forshadowed at some point. The interconnecting plots form a tapestry as intricate as the Age Lace itself. And the new author is doing a good job of completing it. There are 14 books out now, if you include the prequel and I do, and one more to go. I can't wait! Oh, and yes, I am currantly rereading it for the ....7th time, I think...
  18. I'm a Ravenclaw. I know all sorts of weird info and tell everyone about it even if they aren't interested and don't want to know.
  19. I started a new city on my Sims3 game. This one is going to be all comic verse characters. My first family is the House of M, aka. Magneto's family. My old town has mostly book characters with a few TV charies mixed in.
  20. All things considered it probably will be. BTW, is it just me, or are the new legendaries REALLY easy to catch? Because I caught most of them pretty quickly...
  21. I don't know if this has been mentioned yet, but are the legendary pokemon in B/W really easy to catch? Because I caught them all in an hour. Except Landorus, because I haven't finished white yet....
