And yet Huinesoron's "theory" (or wild speculation) concerns one of the perfectly canonical Ruling Queens of Nśmenor. You can't really argue that an author *wouldn't* include something if, you know,...

Ah, but as the Ringwraiths are being spoken of collectively here, "him" could have its secondary meaning of "a person etc of unspecified sex"- technically there's no way to tell in that...

Now, I'll bet you are going to be much trickier with the second answer, and so I should look for something more abstract/metaphorical- that is, "you" and "he" are not actual people this time. "Run...

Hmmn. Does this mean we have to guess both answers? I believe "You are Nessa, he is Tulkas" must be one of them, anyway.

I'm getting confused now. When did we start assuming the "Great Elf Warrior" story never got out of Cirith Ungol? I don't think that can be right, because later, in "The Land of Shadow", Frodo and...

I'd say Gandalf deduced that last from that fact that he (the Mouth) was attempting to bargain at all. If Sauron had had the Ring at that point, he'd have won.
