A flag is raised. This looks like a possible attempt by Lalaith at avoiding "ownership" of her future vote. Note that this way she doesn't have to make a case against, or even express actual...

Zil, Day One

#11
Banter.

#29.
Thinks Runewolf (#16) is "leaving an out in case you're called on it" [suspicion of Boro].

Suggests Huey as a nickname for Huinesoron.

A dark figure loomed behind the mourners, the icy glow of its pale eyes like remote and baleful stars.

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,...

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'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.
