I never said it was elf/man hooks ups were common, it's so rare for several reasons: most people realise it's a stupid idea, the races live separately so there's less interaction and so less chance...

To sound cheesy for a bit if I may, love doesn't always happen when it is 'allowed'. Unlikely, divide-crossing couples happen all the time in real life. Doesn't mean that there will be a happy...

I assume they're based on the creatures that dwelt in Mirkwood after the Shadow fell on it. The same creatures, i.e. orcs and spiders that the Hobbit fled westward from, a collective folk memory in a...

I'm sure the Dunlendings migration happened in the Dark Years of the Second Age, where they moved North to escape Sauron's shadow and so long pre-dating the establishment of Arnor.

Gondor conquered swathes of Rhun and the Harad as well. Small wonder men from the Northern Waste to the Southern heats turned to Sauron to drive out their Numenorean oppressors.

The Dunlendings were the indigenous population of the area and the rightful owners of Calenardhon, they were there long before the Numenorians fell out of the sea onto the land. The Rohirrim were a...

The Athrabeth Finrod ah Andreth in Morgoth's Ring is a great piece of writing that gives a glimpse on how Elves and Women felt about their different fates. It's such a sad yet beautiful work.

Wonder why they never returned. The perils of the journey or the perils of Galadriel and Lothlórien to mortal men?

I believe the correct term is 'as obsessed with LOTR as Gollum is with the ring'. :)

Dunno, in Valinor which is paradise, do they really need to hunt and kill for food? Hunting in Tolkien's day wasn't really seen as that bad a thing. Though, Nimrodel despised the 'Elves of the West'...

Plenty of elves permanently die, none of the Moriquendi were reborn. I'm sure it's Morgoth's Ring where it's said the Dark Elves were seen in the Halls of Mandos but did not speak to the Eldar.

I think he mentions it contained 'other Lords of the Eldar' in the Silmarillion. I reckon Glorfindel must have in a place in it surely?

Didn't Gandalf prefer not to deal with the Men of Gondor/Dunedain because of their pride? Maybe, their pride refused to let Gandalf help repair their fractured nation?

At least wait for the film to come out before making such extreme judgements on it please. I have high hopes for this film and expect it to the meet such hopes.

Maeglin himself may have forged them. I think it's mentioned in the Silmarillion he improved Gondolin's smithing and forged stronger steel swords.

I'm sure Sauron did not take his Ring to Numenor or it would have been lost when Numenor was destroyed. He left it in Mordor and took it up again after the cataclysm.
