Ah, yes. What have I been thinking? I've read those books a million times and still can make quite stupid remarks. I guess it's a gift.

Frodo's realisation that he has to run for it and has to leave the shire and his friends comes pretty close, I guess.

Well... it explains why the Elves are such bastards in his books. in 'Lords and Ladies' they are evil. And in other books such as 'A hat full of sky' the enemy is quite elvish.

A few notices.

The oldest elf is indeed Cirdan the Shipwright. He was among those few Elves that lived in Darkness before they were brought to Valinor by Oromė. I don't know wether he was a...

I agree that the Ring knew about Gandalf, being there when they set out. And maybe the Ring felt the presence of the Balrog when they were in moria. But the presence of Gandalf fell away long before...

Why would the Ring know this? I don't think so at all. The Ring knew that he was born by Frodo, and that there were Nazgūl at hand. I don't believe that the Ring knew more than this, until Sam took...

Gollum shook of both the Men of Faramir in Ithilien and the Elves of Lorien. I can't imagine Aragorn doing anything of the sort.
