Eowyn comes to my mind. The first dark was her depression and the sickness from stabbing the witch-king. The light being from Aragorn when he heals her. The second darkness when she slips back into her depression and the little spark being feelings for Faramir. That's my guess.

Well, I must admit that you did some nice thinking, but it was not the one I was looking for.
Try look into the Silmarillion.

Just a guess. Was it Beren? Like, after wandering he came to Doriath and met Luthien, and then when he accepted his challenge to get the Silmaril, he always had Luthien there for a light.

Probably wrong though. Just a guess.

Happy Holidays Everyone!

Alrightie then...Sorry it took me so long..LoL I forgot I tried to answer it so0o0o.

Anyway, I'm not so good at this kinda thing, so here goes:

I am a sister to two, and knew Gandalf the Grey very well.

Easy I know. Like I said, I am no good at this type of quiz thing, so bear with me.

Sorry again for taking so long. Thanks for the reminder, Beren87

No, It's not Galadriel. I suppose it was very open wasn't it? But if it isn't Galadriel, there aren't really too many others it could be.

Keep trying. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

Hahaha

I would have said Faramir, but hes not exactly FEMALE.... Arwen?
She has two brothers and probably knows Gandalf as GREY pretty well, but just meets him once or so as white.. just guessing, though.

I think it is that Vala... *trying to think hard*...

Nienna, sister of the Feanturi (Irmo and Namo or Mandos and Lorien) and here house is in the West of the West, the windows looking out from the walls of the world. She knows Gandalf, I guess better as Olorin, for his ways took him to Nienna oft in his youth and from her he learned pity and patience.

greetings,
lathspell

is it Aragorn? he passes the paths of the dead and I think Minas Anor means city of the sun. That would be my guess...

OK...here comes my riddle:

in exile I build
the most beautiful garden
light in the dark
to those that wander

it's a person I want.

I have an eager spirit, a jealous brother am I. At my death, no body was left. My children carried a burden to their deaths, which I brought upon them. My eager charge brought upon me isolation and doom. Who Am I?

Well...it could be referring to Gollum following the ring, which would seem to him like hope.

Could be Frodo following the phial of Galadriel through Shelob's lair.

Could be Shelob herself following them, because they were her last hope for food.

Hmmm..."eyes that see" is throwing me off...

Could it be Legolas following Aragorn (the hope of Men) through the Paths of the Dead?

OMG! I got one?!?!?!?! I wasn't prepared for this. I'd like to thank the academy...oh, sorry. Different fantasy.

This will be easy because I totally s#*k at this...

I challenge the Black
