Well, dental hygiene and any other kinds of hygiene is not necessary to put in an adventure story. We simpy assume it was done. If Tolkien had put every little detail into action, there would be a...

I guess there was really no need for a real King in Aman. It was a peaceful, happy community and nobody needed 'off with his head'. Maybe the 'rule' could be changed to 'govern'.

Middle Earth,...

Ok, let's look at it this way. What if Beren, Tuor and Aragorn were Elves and Luthien, Idril and Arwen mortal? I just can't imagine a noble Elven lord going through all the trouble the dirty, hairy...

Well, looking at it in the Ying-Yang way is certainly intriguing, but you must remember Tolkien was a Catholic, a religion where 'good' is more necessary and potent than 'evil' or should be.

While this is just pure speculation, if Middle Earth exists as a literary universe, then it must mean other, almost as well developed literary universes exist; the Discworld etc.

So, if Middle...

I personally agree with everyone's ideas in this post. Come to think of it, one might suggest the whole thing being plain old 'common sense', i.e. overwhelming pride leads to downfall etc.

Though Melkor was the greatest (arguably) of the Ainur and the most powerful of the Valar, Morgoth, however, was just a pitiful Dark Lord, striving for dominion. I have always imagined the two as...

Certainly, the enigmas of Middle Earth give the whole tale a different flavor. Before I repeat anyone else's ideas, I would like to point out the Pukel-men, the forerunners of the Druedain, also a...

The One Ring affected races differently, not genders smilies/wink.gif. Galadriel always had her *thirst* for power, and the tom-boyness she had in Aman did not fully wear off.

Also, do not forget the 'fading' factor. Extremely unlikely any of the 'original' Elves would be left in Middle Earth because of that. If there were any, then only in Valinor, where the 'fading' is...

He did not destroy her, she was much stronger than him by that time.
Morgoth did overthrow the Noldor and he did seem to be winning, but he might have overestimated his defeated enemies.

Tolkien stated, in the Sil, I think, that whatever evil one does, in the end, it is all a plan of Iluvatar. Therefore, I think, whatever chance, fate or free will, at the end of the day, it all turns...

I don't think Tolkien was very concerned about what happened after, because of the fading of the Elves and the Dominion of Men. I think it's too sad a topic to willingly approach.

Zirakzigil: Where Gandalf (Maia) fought with the Balrog (Maia). Gandalf is another name for Olorin, who comes from Valinor.

10th Valarian age - 20th Valarian age: The Blessed Years. 20th Valarian age - 30th Valarian age: Noontide of the Blessed. I don't know the exact years.

Maluriel, I'm not sure what you mean by 'Havens', but if you're talking about Mithlond (the Grey Havens), it's where Elves took their grey ships to Valinor.

I don't think it says anything about it in the Sil, but I guess they'd be mixed up. Seems prettier that way smilies/wink.gif.
