Eijah Wood Biography
"Hobbits delighted in such things, if they were accurate: they liked to have books filled with things that they already knew, set out fair and square with no contradictions."

That's what Tolkien wrote about the hobbits' love of genealogy and history, especially their own. This may seem a roundabout way to introduce a new Biography of Elijah Wood on the Always & Forever fan-site but in my mind hobbits and Elijah are inextricably linked together.

I came to LJ through my love of Tolkien's Middle Earth, with a special soft spot for Frodo Baggins and that extended to the actor who brought Frodo to life on the big screen. So I was thrilled when ladysnaps gave me the opportunity to help her with Elijah's Biography. She managed to make it into a fascinating read. As far as I know this is the most extensive biography of Elijah on the internet. A&F is also the longest running fan-site for Elijah online. So, for those of you who share my soft spot for Elijah Wood, here it is! (LINK).

Lady, Thanks a lot for a very fun ride!

Oh, how wonderful! I'll read it as soon as I can.

Take it slowly, one chapter per day. ;-)

and what a fitting quote! i just hope it lives up to tolkien's words.

look at that face. not much has changed, has it. he's just a bigger version of what he was before with more hair on his face. LOL!

i thank you too! this would not have been possible without you! MWAH!

He really has that Dorian Gray portrait in his attic. :-)

I love that quote!

It was exciting seeing the new biography up at A&F yesterday. You ladies did a good job. :))))

Thanks, Addie. As you know from experience, it was fun.

Wow! How splendid! Great work! I take my hat off before you two! I sure am going to browse through this bio from time to time. :) And yeah, the quote is absolutely fitting!

I'm so glad you liked Elijah's biography. It was amazing to find out how much he had done over the years.

Yeah, you can say that loud! I'm amazed too! And I definitely share a soft spot for Elijah too! Lol!

That's a great quote, very apt.

I would like to thank you for your contribution, I'm sure you worked very hard on this as I have a feeling when you apply yourself to anything it's never less than 100%!!

Thanks, Paulie (grinning).
I do have a reputation for being a perfectionist and also for never giving up.

Working on this I often thought about your work on Journey with Frodo. To dig up all that information, all those quotes and put them into a story where a new instalment would make my day, that was great work.

Thanks for your kind words about 'Journey'. I will always regret being unable to finish it. I think that's the reason I've found it hard to go back to it to reread as I told myself I would, that feeling of something unfulfilled.

I don't see Journey as something unfulfilled. Every chapter shows us what that experience must have been for Elijah and the other cast members. That's what makes it so interesting.
I understand you would have liked to get to the Oscars but Elijah's story is a continuing story, and he said himself that Frodo's little shadow will always be with him.
What I'm trying to say here is that I'm very happy with what you did manage to do!

Thanks, that does make me feel better about it. I'm sure I will revisit again before too long.
