Re: [mythsoc] loyalty oath
- I really don't think that people who are just into the movies and other
forms of pop culture are going to go searching out the Mythopoeic Society.
Or if they do, they will either find a home here or depart for different
waters. Mythsoc is generally found by those who are specifically searching
for the mythopoeic aspect. Of course, there are still differences among
those who feel that mythopoeia was set in stone around the time of the
coronation of EIIR and those who feel that myth creation may be ongoing.
Welcome back, Paul!

1. Goldberry (at least) did work. She had a washing-day while the
hobbits were there.
2. The Lord labored six days.
