For the longest time I was saying Celeborn- "Seleborn". I was saying C's as S's everywhere. Not till I read the Silmarillion did I catch my error.

This should answer every question, and then some concerning the use of "magic": Magic in Middle-earth (http://forum.barrowdowns.com/cgi-bin/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic&f=1&t=000215)

The Mouth of Sauron refers to Frodo as spy, and does so just again just a short while afterwards. I would agree then with the theory that Sauron believes the Ring to be with Aragorn and Co., having...

I'm not sure if I would agree with you on this one point. It is certainly true--he would never have been accepted back to Aman, but I'm not sure if he knew this to be definite at the time of his...

It depends upon your character type. For instance, it would be perfectly acceptable for a ranger or warrior type character to seek danger out for themselves--after all, it's what they do. Of course,...

I don't think so. Their attitudes are the same, but their surrounding circumstances aren't. Galadriel wasn't leaving a hidden city that the Dark Lord was known to be searching for. This puts a...

Tol Eressea is also slightly closer to Middle-earth than Valinor. It would make sense to stop and rest there before continuing on towards Aman.

It doesn't matter so much if they are or aren't based upon people you know, so much as whether it's known that the characters are based on specific people. Let's face it, inevitably some of our...

Generally all of Tolkien's works had "sad endings". Just look at The Silmarillion, the vast majority of the tales recounted in that book are tragedies. The Flight of the Noldo, the fall of FŽanor,...

Actually I have read all of The Silmarillion, over a dozen times--which is how I'm able to continue to prove parts of your notions wrong.

Firstly, Balrogs are not your typical Maiar, so we...

No he didn't. Shagrat (the Captain of Cirith Ungol) escaped Sam with the items from Frodo with him. You're thinking of Snaga, the underling who rebelled against Shagrat.

My mistake, I misread "Lesser" and interpreted as "Greater." Looks like my wit is sleepier than I thought. Unfortunately my knowledge on the lesser rings is lacking, sorry.
