Thorin Thursday: Obscura is Planning a Windy City (Chicago) RA Fans Gathering to See The Battle of the Five Armies film, October 09, 2014 Gratiana Lovelace (Post #646)

HobbitBOTFA-tapestry-CloseUp2--Thorin-Kili-Fili-Azog_Oct0814ranet-sizedThe final The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies (BOFA) BOFA-logo_Oct0814TORNwill premiere in just two months. We will say farewell to beloved characters such as Thorin Oakenshield (spoilers in link) (image left, portrayed by the exquisitely talented British actor Richard Armitage and many other Tolkien characters and their actors portraying them as this trilogy of Hobbit films concludes.

And though this third film is slated to be shorter–I saw a 198 minutes running time somewhere, so maybe by six minutes–BOFA will be huge!   (BOFA Tapestry image below via


So are you ready for the epic battle of good and evil? And we are talking about a time in Middle Earth when evil really meant something–and not just that a Hobbit was annoyed that you ate his food, or that a Wizard kept going off and leaving you but coming back in the nick of time to work his magic, or you having to be covered in stinky fish while hiding in barrels, or even you desperately seeking to find the jewel that acknowledges your “right to rule” and planning revenge on your naysayers, etc.  Evil as in your survival not being assured because that Sauron dude is up to his old tricks in inciting death and destruction.

One way to commemorate this historic BOFA film event is to share it with friends–especially RA Fan Friends.

Delightfully, Obscura (of the Ancient Armitage blog)–with an anonymous helper–is kindly taking the lead on planning a Windy City (Chicago) RA Fans gathering for sometime opening weekend of December 19-20th, or beyond:

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies Chicago Fan Event…round 1 by Obscura, October 7, 2014

Obscura has a poll that you can take and also make comments as her event planning commences. I’m excited and hope that whatever date the Chicago gathering ends up being on, that I can attend. I am so looking forward to meeting up with old and new RA Fan Friends–as well as seeing the film with them. So please visit Obscura’s post link hyperlinked above this paragraph to get started.

P.S. Comments over there, please. Thanks!

About Gratiana Lovelace

Gratiana Lovelace is my nom de plume for my creative writing and blogging. I write romantic stories in different sub genres. The stories just tumble out of me. My resurgence in creative writing occurred when I viewed the BBC miniseries of Elizabeth Gaskell's novel North & South in February 2010. The exquisitely talented British actor portraying the male lead John Thornton in North & South--Richard Crispin Armitage--became my unofficial muse. I have written over 50 script stories about love--some are fan fiction, but most are original stories--that I am just beginning to share with others on private writer sites, and here on my blog. And as you know, my blog here is also relatively new--since August 2011. But, I'm having fun and I hope you enjoy reading my blog essays and my stories. Cheers! Grati ;-> upd 12/18/11
