Welcome to the A-Z Blogging Challenge on my blog! Hi, my name is Krista. (readers echo) I'm a writer of young adult fantasy and urban fantasy. I also love jelly beans - seriously, I have 7 bags of the Easter speckled ones hidden in a container in my bedroom, and I spend too much time failing at dating fictional characters.
My theme for the A-Z Blogging Challenge is: Awesome Nerd-ness
Did I not mention above that I'm a complete nerd? Well, I am. :) I even have it as a board on Pinterest; yes, that nerdy. Awesome Nerd-ness.
Without further mindless (yet cool) chatter I will talk about today's letter!
Aragorn, son of Arathorn, is one of the main protagonists from J.R.R. Tolkien's epic "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy. He is a ranger from the north who meets the hobbits in Bree and joins them on their quest to destroy the One Ring. I love the rich background Tolkien wrote for Aragorn and the trials of
his life. He fought in many battles, and saw so many things. He fell
in love with Arwen and eventually married her. Their love story is
breathtaking and if you've never read it, you should read it in the
Appendices of "The Return of the King". (There's so much information
He is my favorite Tolkien character! He has such a rich history, being
born to a broken line, refusing to be king and being raised by elves.
His lineage was hidden from him and Aragorn was actually called "Estel"
when he lived in Rivendell, until he was twenty and Elrond told him the
truth. He's a noble character and possessed an elven wisdom. He is
also a skilled healer. Although Aragorn doubted his own strength to
become king, he knew it was his destiny to become King. Aragorn slowly becomes the King that Gondor needs.
Who is your favorite character from "The Lord of the Rings"?
