He has such a cute love story with his wife (copied from Wikipedia):

At the age of 16, J.R.R Tolkien met Edith Mary Bratt, who was three years his senior, when he and his brother Hilary moved into the boarding house where she lived. His guardian, Father Morgan, viewing Edith as a distraction from Tolkien's school work and horrified that his young charge was seriously involved with a Protestant girl, prohibited him from meeting, talking to, or even corresponding with her until he was 21. He obeyed this prohibition to the letter,[43] with one notable early exception, over which Father Morgan threatened to cut short his University career if he did not stop.[44]

On the evening of his 21st birthday, Tolkien wrote to Edith. He declared his love and asked her to marry him. Edith replied that she had already agreed to marry another man, but that she had done so because she had believed Tolkien had forgotten her. The two met beneath a railway viaduct and renewed their love. Edith returned her engagement ring and announced that she would marry Tolkien instead.[45] Following their engagement Edith reluctantly announced that she was converting to Catholicism at Tolkien's insistence. Her landlord, a staunch Protestant, was infuriated and evicted her as soon as she found other lodgings.[46] Edith and Ronald were formally engaged in Birmingham, in January 1913, and married at St. Mary Immaculate Roman Catholic Church, Warwick, on 22 March 1916.[47]

I think it might not be a LOTR thing, but possibly a nod to his service in World War I. Of course, I could be completely wrong here.
User avatar #18 to #10 - daentraya (10/31/2013) [-]
If it isn't his service in ww1, then it's because that not only did he write LOTR; he made the whole dahm high fantasy genre what it is

before talking **** know your facts. if im not mistaken, it was his son who put it there. Tolkien wrote the Lord of the Rings in letters to his son who was in the ww1, so that his son would have something else to think about other than war. that is his sons dog tag you ******* retard.

It's pretty cool how he spent his entire life as a writer creating lore for the LOTR universe.

fun fact: on tolkein's gravestone it says "beren" and on his wife Edith's gravestone it says "luthien", which were two characters in the silmarillion with a pretty epic/intense love story and he said that luthien was, basically, the most beautiful person ever, and he said he based her on his wife Edith

Don't have to play it. Read the books.
User avatar #64 to #63 - mondominiman ONLINE (10/31/2013) [-]
What's it about though, from what I've seen people say on here it's something about space marines.
User avatar #65 to #64 - asheskirata (10/31/2013) [-]
It's a massive war in the future, between the humans(Space Marines, the Eldar, Orks, Tyranids and a few other factions, including the forces of Chaos which are Daemons.

38,000 years in the future, mankind has settled more than a million worlds across the galaxy. Most are united in the Imperium of Man, an extremely brutal and oppressive theocratic regime devoted to the God-Emperor of Mankind. Although the Imperium of Man is vast, its population uncountable and its armies immense, it is like a house of cards ready to collapse. Constant and escalating warfare, bureaucratic inefficiency, corrupt leadership, and technological stagnation put an immense strain upon its economy and the morale of its people. Victories come at a terrible cost and only delay the inevitable fall.

Is there somewhere I can read it or pirate it or what?
User avatar #70 to #69 - asheskirata (11/01/2013) [-]
I typically just go to a local bookstore and read it there
User avatar #71 to #70 - mondominiman ONLINE (11/01/2013) [-]
I'll read some of it online and If i really like it I'll order it or buy it if I come across a bookstore.
User avatar #72 to #71 - asheskirata (11/01/2013) [-]
That's a good plan, hope you enjoy the stories
User avatar #73 to #72 - mondominiman ONLINE (11/01/2013) [-]
Alright I just looked online and there's a **** ton of books. Which one is the first one or the one that explains the Warhammer universe the most.
User avatar #74 to #73 - asheskirata (11/01/2013) [-]
The books do not tell a sequential tale of Warhammer or Warhammer 40,000 but tell the tales of the battles or events of the period. If it’s easier, think of each novel or series as telling of a battle or following a character or company through an engagement set during WWII rather than being the definitive history of the entire war.

I understand Tolkien was the most important author for most of you, as J. K. Rowling was for me when I was a kid and Albert Camus when I was in Highschool, but a simple dogtag with thankyou shouldn't give you that much "feels".

I'm sure people have done much better, and heartfelt things in the name of, or simply because of Tolkien.

That's a ******* terrible argument. Go sit in the corner.
Jesus ******* christ I didn't even get any "feels" from this post, but even I know the difference between a waitress and a writer of arguably one of the best fantasy series ever written.

theres no difference

a writer and a waitress. only one provides anything meaningful to this world.

I am not a liberal but last time I checked, liberal policies had nothing to do with waiters or writers.
