Okay, so this is going to probably sound dumb, and possibly noobish.
So, I have been an eclectic pagan for some time, more so in faith then in practise. For the most part, I've followed a Celtic based path, with interest in most of the Celtic pantheons. A couple of years ago, my interest turned towards the Norse pantheon, though I always returned to the Celtic ones. While I still follow a Celtic path, the Anglo-saxon ways of old, and gods, interest me as well, which are similar to the Norse.
Now... I am a big Hobbit fan, it being my favourite fiction book. If I could live in any place, real or not, it would be The Shire, without hesitation. Actually, it's where I like to think of during meditation. So, from things I've gathered, Germanic paths, like many others, speak with, worship, pay homage to, etc the land spirits, which include the dwarves. Would it be so far fetched for someone who revered dwarves, elves and the like to do the same towards hobbits? After all, Tolkien himself was inspired by the old Germanic mythologies.
Sorry for the long rambling. I am curious as to what others may think of this.
