So are you saying that we should discard the story we have altogether and make up whatever we want instead, because instead of seeing it as Tolkien telling us a story the way it is, you'd rather...

Most of Beleriand fought in the Nirnaeth, brave people and cowards alike; participation in battle isn't proof of bravery. And we have seen people fare better under Morgoth's torture - Hurin being the...

Except if they knew Frodo and company were involved. Recall Fatty Bolger's scare, and the attack on the Peancing Pony. The Nazgul might not have killed Bolger per se but they didn't come for tea...

I bring a message of despair, but myself get a message of hope. I ask for the commander but find his superior. Who am I?

How about Arvedui? Had some plans about being the High King and going to Gondor or something like that, but instead went up to the Bay of Forochel. Which did not end well for Arvedui.

The incident I'm thinking of was on the USSR side. Tried searching for it, but it's not much help given that their cavalry participated in pretty much every battle all the way up to Berlin. To me it...

Were they also wearing red trousers? :p

As for the cavalry. Heh.
Come WW2 though and the opinion on the usefulness of cavalry is completely reversed again because unlike motorized forces they...

Defection is the perfect word for it. Thank you for helping me phrase the difference in words. And I agree that up to this point there has not been redemption. But I think there might have been a...

And isn't it great? Some of these characters did terrible things, and yet we still love them and don't want them to die! Doesn't that speak to the depth of these characters and the quality of the...

Yeah, that's exactly my point (and I like tragic characters too, you're not the only one :)). The beauty of tragic heroes and anti-heroes is the tragedy. You want it to not happen that way, but you...

That's like being pro-gravity and not wanting things to fall. If you like the character the way he was written, why would you want to change the way he was written?

Also, spoiler, but he still...

But why do you think it's impossible to be pro-Maeglin without rewriting his story all the time? You keep trying to change his story to make excuses for him. Well, he did bad things, and it was his...

I agree with Hui and William. The other characters didn't regret what they did, and they did not die with any "good intention". And I hate to break it to you, but neither did Maeglin. Redemption has...

"No cyclops" might mean she has 2 I's, and a MER, making... Miriel? But no L.


3. Virgin suggests Mary to me, but that doesn't give anything. Marie might lead to AMARIE though.

I don't know. Maybe Morgoth will kill Maeglin slowly, because he feels no gratitude or empathy towards those who serve him, and because it would be fun for him.

Very few people are asked if they would like to atone. Atonement is done by your own will, and it could have happened at any point, really. One doesn't have to wait until the moment of death. So they...
