  2. It’s amazing how many of us think we’re the only ones who do or like certain things. A friend of mine found this not long after we both discovered that we weren’t the only ones who made up stories about our favorite Tolkien characters. That it is a well established phenomenon and is called “fanfiction”. It was so amazing to find out we were far from being “the only one who . . .” ๐Ÿ˜Š

  3. (I’ve paraphrased this a little)
    โ€œFriendship … is born at the moment when one person says to another “What! You too? I thought that I was the only one who . . .โ€
    โ€• C.S. Lewis, The Four Loves

    And I’ll throw in an extra, because Tolkien is my also one of my favorite authors.

    “Fantasy remains a human right: we make in our measure and in our derivative mode, because we are made: and not only made, but made in the image and likeness of a Maker.”
    J. R. R. TOLKIEN, On Fairy-Stories
