Ah, that's a wonderful quote! Gimli is speaking of Saruman:
Quote:
The words of this wizard stand on their heads. In the language of Orthanc help means ruin, and saving means slaying, that is plain.
"Muggle" was a great clue, Evisse! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

That's another great quote, Evisse! "throw away the moon" was the clue that gave it away to me. Gandalf speaking, of course:
Quote:
'If Elves could fly over mountains, they might fetch the Sun to save us,' answered Gandalf. 'But I must have something to work on. I cannot burn snow.'

Thanks, Estelyn! [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img] I had a little trouble with the antonym for 'snow', I'm sure there's a better one than 'rain'. Anyways, the thread's yours!

That's exactly right, luthien-elvenprincess - welcome to the Barrow-Downs and to this thread! I hope you have as much fun turning a new quote around for us as I did with that one!

That quote sounds so familiar, but my searching has been unsuccessful so far! I'm assuming that the name is 'Gimli' backwards and am looking for something that refers to water that has receded and the Eye sleeping in the South. Am I on the right track? I looked at the places with water - Orthanc and outside of the Gate to Moria, but didn't find anything there...

Yes, Estelyn, Gimli is the one speaking.
You are on the right track about water receding.
However, the "Unseeing" in my quote is not the "Eye". Anyway, I assumed you were thinking of the eye of Sauron. It is not him.
Check the account of Moria again...especially the conversations within the walls of Moria. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

"Ere iron was found or tree was hewn,
When young was mountain under moon;
Ere ring was made or wrought was woe
It walked the forests long ago."

This is it, no? The rhythm is roughly the same. I liked the 'undone is joy' bit.

Ok, try this:

Quote:
"Wake up. But let's be scared." cried Saruman,"Because I'm, unlike Sam, flying away from the Shire, and not to Bree, but here we will be in great danger, not as we can't be nowhere in the past."
That wasn't easy at all!

That was a tough one, Evisse! I thought it could be the "You have grown, Halfling" speech by Saruman at first, but when I looked more closely, the differences were too great. I finally found it in TTT - Merry is speaking to Pippin of Gandalf:
Quote:
He has grown, or something. He can be both kinder and more alarming, merrier and more solemn than before, I think. He has changed; but we have not had a chance to see how much, yet.
