Sorry, I forgot about that one. It's Gandalf, Sauron and Saruman you're supposed to avoid.

Radagast>Mouth of Sauron

Then here's another solution without any of them:
Radagast--Eagles--Bilbo--Frodo--Pippin--Mouth of Sauron

Either way, it's Andsigil's turn now.

Mouth of Sauron--Legolas--Galadriel (quite possible to use another Elf here)--Nimrodel

Galadriel could be excluded if Legolas' song about Nimrodel counts as a connection, which I doubt.

This is an easy one, but I can't think of anything better for the moment.

Oh man... That "Yup" post of mine - I was only two months dead when I made it! That's scary! 2010 can't be that long ago!

Earwen - Galadriel - Elrond - Isildur - Aratan?

Maybe it could go directly from Elrond to Aratan and skip Isildur. At some point I suppose Elrond could have met Isildur's son, but I don't know if there's any actual proof of such a meeting.

The thread is yours!

I suppose they've met, but since we're not sure about direct interaction I went with either Isildur or else Valandil as the link.

I thought about it, but it is never implied that Gil-Galad and Elendil met.

This one is surprisingly difficult for two elves in the First Age...

How about: Fingolfin -> Turgon -> Tuor -> Earendil -> Elwing ?
