thing???
I'm confused...
thing makes it sound it's not alive, but slain clearly shows the contrary

or maybe it should only show that these 2 things are identical...I really don't know what to understand from this

I dunno, maybe Deagol

No That is not it Might....You are kinda on the right trail that they are the same, in a way. And yes the things are alive.

alive...
but if they both are things it would also mean they have something in common
but since there are so many examples of Men killing Men or Elves killing Elves this can't be so easy

it made me think that "thing" might suggest they are animals...so I first thought of the Witch-king's fell beast and Snowmane

since you ask "who2 and not "what" makes me think it was definitely an individual
then I'd say Carcharoth slain by Huan

lol...Anar is the Sun itself...
and even though theoretically the Sun does trap or contain its light I guess, the Sun doesn't qualify as a thing for me...the presence of Arien makes it more a living thing

I guess I haven't used the right words
I wanted to use "thing" here not as a term for an unknown name, but as a synonim for object

Sorry Valier, but Legate is right
The Elessar had the light of the Sun trapped within it, and those who looked through it were said to see the withered or aged as whole and young again. It was even claimed to have some power of healing.
Now we are talking mostly about the first Elessar, the one that greater power, since the second one given to Aragorn was also made by Celebrimbor but it was not as good as the first.

Unless, of course, it was not the same Elessar - which we are not 100% sure about.

...but of coourse it was the Elessar! Okay, guess I'm up to post the next. So...

...remember that guy who was always left in trouble by his pals?

Nope, and to make matters clear I might add that I am using the info from the books, at least in this case.
