Hmmph. That makes perfect, perfect sense.

It just feels like... well, example. Compare it to Frodo telling Sam about the beauty of Smaug's Treasures as if he'd seen it himself, though we know...

See, that's what I was thinking. But Maglor (Elrond's foster-father) did not come to Eonwe's summons. And beyond that, Elrond shouldn't have, either, since he chose to stay in Middle-earth rather...

Eye .... wait, what?

Perhaps someone else here has read the Histories of Middle-earth more closely, but I'm not finding the answer anywhere.

In his eponymous council, Elrond, in the middle of describing the battle...

Like... Orodruin?
Ha. I had to say it. Perhaps the Numenoreans ventured into Mordor and dragged back some volcanic rock to build their tower in Isengard.

Heh. And, besides Galin's new example, um... as I was looking back at "Of the Sindar" I found the short section where Thingol amasses an army and leaves Doriath to come to the aid of Denethor and the...

Haha. Point taken. Though I would quibble that Thingol would have declared it before Yavanna. I'm totally fascinated with Melian and Thingol's inequality on the terms of gender role-reversal:

Mmm, yes. "Doom" here having the meaning of "fate," which was used to describe Feanor earlier. Gorram @#%$% fate!

Eye In which I am surprised this thread didn't fail

Yes. :D Specifically, the idea of mythology versus legend versus history in the Silm.



Can't really disagree with that, I guess. It does seem pretty much like the most hopeless mission ever...

So I'm rereading through the Silm for the frillionth time (working on my undergrad thesis :D), and I was startled to realize that I absolutely despise Thingol. I can't really place my distaste for...

At the same time, Faramir says that the HoG "washed up on the riverbank" four days before. Four days! He's been hanging onto it that long, and somewhere between meeting Sam &...

Eye Who's Got the Horn of Gondor? (Continuity is not PJ's strong suit.)

I haven't found any other threads that mention this... it's just a minor quibble I have, possibly even just my own confusion on continuity.

During TTT:EE, just before the flashback involving...

I think the vital problem with the Faramir-in-the-Fellowship argument is that it seems to stem from the films, in particular a flashback scene in TTT:EE. Correct me if I'm wrong, but that's the only...

Ahhh, you stole mine! That was absolutely my favorite scene in any of the films, since I'm a Gondor junkie. The irony! The passion! The Bor-Far love!
