Quoth James Cameron,

"Nevermore"



Yeah, I just finished rereading Fellowship (while in fugue state from the rona vaccine, they were not kidding about the arm soreness I feel like I got thrown down the stairs) and I was paging back to the maps all the time. Even though I've pretty well memorized Middle-earth by now. Even before they leave the Shire there's tons of travelogue that is greatly improved by having a map of the Shire to look at.

e: new page have a cool fan Shire map

I know its an entirely weird me problem thing but I like not having to worry about concrete locations and distances and mountain ranges and what not because it makes my brain transition from "this is a kickass mythic story" to "the foliage described in this region are nonsense based on the geography presented and further more"

STOP BEING EVIL.


I think I misinterpreted the map the first time I read Lord of the Rings, and so every time I see the map later it's like it's rotated wrong and nothing makes sense.

Tolkien is the ur foliage nerd though, both literally and figuratively. He's patient zero for the comic book guy brain disease (and the fact that I'm calling it that means I'm a terminal case too lol)
