The aspect closest to my heart is empathising with more purified and picturesque acts of bravery and earnest effort than the complicated and familiar "real world" offers. I like to look at the characters and their ideals and find parts of myself in them, and then bring myself closer toward those ideals--fantasy as self-improvement, perhaps?
I grew up on the books; my mother read the Hobbit to me for the first time when I was five or six. I saw the movies a few years after they came out, entirely by accident--and then I was hooked on those, too.
Yes, though I haven't read a comprehensive array of their works.
I am a Virgo and an INFP.
This was my first meeting and every person to a one was friendly and encouraging and made me feel welcome--I'll definitely be coming to as many future meetings as I can.
