When I was first hit by this all-consuming passion for Elijah & LOTR and started searching the internet for info (before I saw FOTR I knew absolutely nothing about him) I found myself wandering around the message boards of a Yahoo fan group where the average age seemed to be 15. Because online fandom was an unknown world to me I didn't have a clue where to go. I would read through their posts & between the squeeing there would sometimes be an interesting point made, or someone would mention something about Lij that I would love to know more about - but not only did I feel unable join in, I felt like a complete freak for even reading there.

But then I came across Adult Elijah Fan and discovered that there were other oldies who, just like me, had been mesmerised by this young man. Through that group I discovered links to LJ land and when I finally took the plunge and started my own LJ I decided to dedicate my user name to that wonderful moment when I discovered that, in fact, I was not alone.
