Silmarien has just left Hobbiton.

If you're going to talk about genetic trends you'd have to know his mothers hair colour too. Sorry I'm a bit too science oriented, I think.

I personally never thought elves had pointed ears until the movies came out.(well, except when my dad read me the hobbit and I thought hobbits were funny, furry little creatures. I was 8 or something.) I always thought they wouldn't cos Tolkien wanted to move away from the little "elfs" Not to mention why in middle earth do hobbits have pointed ears. It is expressly stated that hobbits are far more closely related to men than elves.

That was alot only half on topic but with questions like this they sort of pop up in my mind.
Though here at journeys end I lie in dakness buried deep, beyond all towers strong and high beyond all mountains steep, above all shadows rides the Sun and Stars forever dwell:I will not say the Day is done nor bid the Stars farewell!
