Many thanks to Ithildin, Hellga, Endiliel, and Marnie for all their help and corrections. They were all amazing and nitpicky - exactly what I needed to make this essay what it is today. I deeply appreciate their efforts on my behalf - especially their obsessive dissection of Legolas' name!
And thank you also to my communications teacher, who required a research essay out of us. Were it not for her, this piece would never have been composed.
