This could be a possible quote from Middle-Earth, but from a writing other than Hobbit/LOTR/Silm. Actually, it is from what you call a non-canonical source.
<blockquote>Quote:<hr> 'You claim lineage from a deity, but no less can I! For my forefathers on my homeland were Stallion and Horse, descendants of their highest deity!'<hr></blockquote>

Re: Yet another quote that wasn't


Pretty hard, Sharku!

May it be farmer Giles' horse in her imaginatory converse with Chrysophilax the dragon? (probably?)

Re: Yet another quote that wasn't

Wrong book.
I think this information I should have provided beforehand - it's from a non-canonical version of ME-myth.

Re: Yet another quote that wasn't

Does &quot;non-canonical&quot; in this sense mean written by someone other than Tolkien or just unofficial/unpublished?

Truth will outlast both fact and fiction.</p>

Re: Yet another quote that wasn't

By JRRT; although a look on the BD fanfic might help to inspire... (no, I'm not advertising my little story via this q.)



A little hint might be what is needed: 'Horse and Stallion' are of course the main hints here. However, these cannot be found anywhere in Middle-Earth...

SharkŻ, I give up for myself. Don't let such a pretty thread die out

Re: Yet another quote that wasn't

Well, alright. I'll post a new one later; for now I give the answer:

I thought it to be Aelfwine to Elrond (or one of his kin).
Why? Elrond, for example, can claim lineage from Melian, an Ainu.
Aelfwine on the other hand hints on the Anglo-Saxon mythology that their forefathers which landed on Britain were Hengist and Horsa, Horse and Stallion in modern English. These two brother-kings were said to be direct descendants (grand-grand-children IIRC) of Wotan (that is also why Aelfwine would say 'their' and not 'our' or 'my' highest deity).

Re: Yet another quote that wasn't


Impressive!

:eek:

HerenIstarion 10-12-2002 01:37 AM

Since Sharku is showing no interest (as yet [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]), I'll go on with the thing. Easy one to follow:

Quote:

I always liked his porter the most, though lager is not so bad either
who to whom about whom

Susan Delgado 10-12-2002 01:39 AM

I don't understand how this game works

HerenIstarion 10-16-2002 01:21 AM

The thing is, the quote given here is not textually backed up nowhere. It simply does not exist, yet it might have been uttered by someone (given the circumstances). sample:

Quote:

Not even my uncle Andy ever did a trick like that
That's Sam when he is going to walk the rope over Nimrodel. Then one may extend the quote and add something like:

Quote:

though once he did hang himself by his ankle
Non existent quote, yet given the information that:

A) Uncle Andy have been having dealings with ropes
B) He was doing some (assumption driven from stressing on "even" and "ever") tricks with them, though these never included walking over streams

the quote might have been uttered by Sam then and there

see?

Susan Delgado 10-16-2002 07:58 PM

Whoa, mind bending. I understand now.

HerenIstarion 10-17-2002 12:33 AM

Than back to the question posed:

Quote:

who to whom

Dwarin Thunderhammer 10-17-2002 12:48 AM

Total shot in the dark. Gandalf to Frodo about Barliman?

HerenIstarion 10-17-2002 01:13 AM

Here is the man (dwarf?) who evidently mastered the principle
give me 5 http://www.plaudersmilies.de/coolman.gif


Well, you are hot on the tracks - the beer in question is Barliman's alright, but that was not Gandalf I had in mind. Back it up with RoTK evidence, you must figure it out [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

Dwarin Thunderhammer 10-17-2002 01:21 AM

Maybe I should shoot in the dark more often. Seems I got fairly close.

Would that be Sam continuing the quote of Aragorn: "But his beer is always good" ?

HerenIstarion 10-17-2002 01:45 AM

the quote you give is a start out. working backwards, you get Aragorn whom Sam is quoting. The speculation that Aragorn prefers porter is inessential. Well, you hit so close I count the thing as guessed out [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

proceed

HerenIstarion 10-19-2002 02:54 AM

Dwarin?

HerenIstarion 10-28-2002 01:46 AM

Well, the thread dies out again, and since I don't want it to, I'll take up a banner here (since Dwarin is neglecting his duties [img]smilies/tongue.gif[/img] anyways):

Quote:

My heart tells me they may prove themselves useful indeed if you let them go
who to whom + circumstances

Orodoliel 11-03-2002 07:27 AM

Gandalf might have said it to Elrond regarding letting Merry and Pippin join the Fellowship.

HerenIstarion 11-03-2002 02:19 PM

quite correct. Go on

and welcome [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

Orodoliel 11-04-2002 12:11 PM

The next quote that wasn't is:

Now what on Earth are they?

HerenIstarion 11-04-2002 02:00 PM

Gimli or any of the Rohirrim about Guorns?

Orodoliel 11-05-2002 12:22 PM

No... not quite! (but close!)

HerenIstarion 11-06-2002 01:20 AM

than maybe Treebeard about Merry and Pippin?

Orodoliel 11-07-2002 12:41 PM

Yep!

Go ahead!

HerenIstarion 11-08-2002 02:11 AM

Quote:

... for you are sharp and deadly, and may be hidden...
this time I need not only speaker, but the quote from which this one is derived [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

Orodoliel 11-09-2002 11:47 AM

Oooh... this ones harder!

Orodoliel 11-16-2002 12:34 PM

Sorry, still can't think where it might fit. [img]smilies/frown.gif[/img]

How about a clue?

Galadel Vinorel 11-16-2002 02:38 PM

Bilbo talking about Sting, in the Hobbit?

Boy, that one sure IS HARD!!

HerenIstarion 11-18-2002 01:02 AM

Nice to see new faces in this dusty game thread [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

yes, Galadel Vinorel, that's verily Bilbo talking to Sting. Go ahead

Galadel Vinorel 11-25-2002 03:29 PM

I can't believe that I got that right!! YEAH!! I never get these things right!! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]


Quote:

Mind yourself! Don't get lost, and don't forget that it is safer indoors.

Who said this? Have fun guessing, my fellow Downers!! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

-Imrahil- 11-25-2002 07:03 PM

Galadel- that sounds like something out of a children's story.

Am I close?

Galadel Vinorel 11-25-2002 07:08 PM

No. This is from LOTR, Imrahil.

Any other guesses? [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] [img]smilies/cool.gif[/img]

-Imrahil- 11-25-2002 07:36 PM

Gandalf to Pippin in Minas Tirith?

Galadel Vinorel 11-25-2002 08:33 PM

Close, but, no.

Guess, again, my fellow Downer!! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

hobbitlass 11-25-2002 09:15 PM

Pippin to Merry at the Prancing Pony when Merry decides to take a walk.

-Imrahil- 11-25-2002 09:29 PM

Darn! Hobbitlass got to it before me!

My guess to [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img]

HerenIstarion 11-26-2002 12:44 AM

you are very nice hobbits/elves/dwarves, and I'm awfully sorry to do the thing I'm going to do, but since the previously given quote was "real" existing one, I have no other choice:

<marquee><font color="FF0013">READ THE RULES FIRST!!!READ THE RULES FIRST!!!READ THE RULES FIRST!!READ THE RULES FIRST!!!</marquee>

and now I offer to your attention the rules:

The quote given here is not textually backed up nowhere. It simply does not exist, yet it might have been uttered by someone (given the circumstances). sample:

Quote:

Not even my uncle Andy ever did a trick like that
That's Sam when he is going to walk the rope over Nimrodel. Then one may extend the quote and add something like:


Quote:

though once he did hang himself by his ankle
Non existent quote, yet given the information that:

A) Uncle Andy have been having dealings with ropes
B) He was doing some (assumption driven from stressing on "even" and "ever") tricks with them, though these never included walking over streams

the quote might have been uttered by Sam then and there


see? The quotes to be posed in this thread are made up, but logically connected with what is in Tolkien's books

now pray proceed

respectfully

Galadel Vinorel 11-26-2002 03:06 PM

Hobbitlass, your CORRECT! Your turn!!

Sorry, Heren, I didn't see that. **Galadel blushes tremendously and walks out of the qoutes board with her head down and she is sighing**
