2 may be RADAGAST because of AGHAST and the rabbit sled, but I don't know about the tubular leaves.

A guess at ARTANIS for the password?

Aragorn is correct. For most of my clues I like getting you close and there's a slight logic leap. Aracorn > Aragorn. For me to try to swap the c with clues is confusing.

Skater Tubular "Rad"

Password is correct. Radagast may also help reveal the theme.

Is N Nerwen? I presume our own Nerwen is a bookworm. And there is w(h)en for questioning time. Perhaps the 'reflect' bit refers to how the name is almost a palindrome.

I think Rad is German for bicycle, but what exactly is the Tubular Rad?

Tubular and Rad are slang for cool usually associated with surfers and skaters.

Also Nerwen is correct
Nerd When
Reflect for her mirror

Fahrrad (spelling?) is German for bicycle. Rad could be short for bike though?

Well, there are two characters who appear twice, with two of their names. Could the theme be pairs of names - four characters, each appearing twice, under different names?

OK ... I was trying to make Telcontar or Thorongil work for T, but I now think that one belongs with the other pair.

The guy who takes it in step is Strider, I think.

The 'opposites' guy could be Incanus (3 opposites in a row).

The 'garbage bandit' could be rat, which is in Tharkun as well as Telcontar, which I thought of originally.

Great job!

Though garbage bandit was raccoon kun.

I'm either not good at riddles or you're very good! Let's go with that one. I soooo wanted to use Sharkey but couldn't make it work.

Over to you my friend!

That's three brilliant passwords you've set!

What was the white whale element, though?

I am having similar issues trying to produce themed passwords. Sometimes you have to compromise.

Ah - I didn't know or had forgotten that Moby Dick was a white whale.

Try this one:

1. Dragon ran in confusion, but lost a little weight for him.
2. Craftsman reforms her.
3. Happy little Frances mixes up for him.
4. Cockney without denial? A touch of spin, though. See him!
5. He runs back from drama school to a German guest, but overshoots by one place!

And #5 is RADAGAST? (R.A.D.A. + "gast" = "guest" in German). Only I don't see where the last part of the clue comes into it...

You are quite right. Running back is because it appears backwards, and overshooting by one place is because that's what the answer does. It's the S that is part of the password. I hope the spaces I have put in work ....

Alas, they haven't. But it's every first letter of the first four answers and the second letter of the fifth. I tried to space the other clues along to get the two bolded letters lined up, but it won't display them that way.

So this doesn't get buried...

Elrond for the first? Has some letters in common with dragon losing the G could be the weight because of grams...

You are right about losing a G (for the weight bit), but you need to start with a *particular* dragon.

I might add that all the answers are ridiculously unobscure. Artanis was the most obscure, (and only because of the version of her name used).

I can almost make Bregalad from glad and "little" Frances, but the B ruins it all.

GLAD is correct.

There is a diminutive of Frances that used to be very common. Keats's sweetheart was called by it - and his sister too, I think. Also Lizzy Bennet's mother.

Shorten the diminutive again, and you get the name Ebenezer Scrooge called his sister by (the mother of his nephew Fred).

I know the password.

So I knew it wasGandalf
But couldn't figure out how it fit
Glad and Fan. Gandalf.

I could also wager a guess at the last clue but based on the password. No I'm not saying it because my brain hurts to much to make more riddles

You can always say the password but pass on writing the next one, if you haven't time at the moment.

Making them themed is difficult, although a rewarding challenge. A theme is a wonderful extra, though, not an obligation.

Which makes the last answer Elrond but can't figure out the actual clue.

Where do Cockneys live? And what word do we often use when we deny something?

5. Imladris? (That name is used in the poem/song that Boromir recites, rather than Rivendell).

4. Wife?

I thought it might have been Entwife, to be fair. Or Elfwine.

2. And-U-in = ANDUIN? Frodo fled down it, and Samwise followed.

1. Sir + he = SHIRE?

6. I think this might be Smeagol. It seems likely that there might be a chemical element that sounds like Smeagol, but I can't think of it.

Unless it's 'sounds like seagull.' Seagulls have VERY elemental habits. (Anyone who has lived by the sea and been crapped on by one in mid-flight will know this).

Oh - MORIA? Sound of 'more' plus the sounds of 'E' and 'A,' which are the two vowels in the word 'Earth.'

(EDIT: And Moria is very deep).
