I don't remember any physical strife between Galadriel & Feanor in UT, but what I think you are speaking of is the "hair" incident. The experts may have to check my facts and fill in some blanks...

Oh Mithadan! Once a lawyer, always a lawyer I guess! Good advice though.

Just ran into a post by another by-gone soul - The Lorien Wanderer. I wonder what happened to him?

Thanks for the response Sharku! I see the point in that it does not directly correspond with the Melian + Thingol theory (Thingol being an intelligent creature with a fea), but what about Ungoliant...

I have to side with those who named Finrod and Fingolfin. These two get my vote.

Good point Timloth, about Earendil! I had not thought of that. Now if there was no Tuor, would Maeglin have had his way with Idril? I shudder to think of the offspring from such a loathful...
