Don't get me wrong, going with Frodo and Sam would be equally admirable and, uh, niiice as well, if instead off trudging off after Gollum I would get to stay with Faramir.
"Well, Frodo and Sam have their hands full with the Ring, but as for me, I can make you a nice cup of tea, Faramir, son of Denethor. And say, there's a lovely view here at Henneth Annun, with a little bit of decorating..."
Eowyn who? [img]smilies/tongue.gif[/img]
In all seriousness, when I think about it, providing Frodo and Sam with some comfort on their journey, telling them bed-time stories, cheering them up with games of charades (I am very good at charades) and impressions of Gollum would make for a noble quest indeed.
Humph, I just realized that I am making myself out to be a Middle-Earth nanny/jester. Ok, nah, Faramir or no Faramir, pursuing the Uruk-Hai suits my image better.

But this DOES sound like me. I wouldn't mind taking that role in all honesty.

Hey! Now that I got my shallowness out of my system with the other post: the real reason I would go with the three is that I found their adventures to just be more fun. Also: I would not want to be with Gollum for anything: I may accidentally get mad and kill him or something.

Also, Sam and Frodo's journey strengthened the bond between them, and I would not want to ruin that for the world.

Hahahahaha, I guess the bond between Legolas and Gimli, on the other hand, may easily be ruined! [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

As it were, I am a fine horse of Rohan, so I'm sure I would be much more useful to Aragorn, Legolas, and Gimli. Of course, what ever would Gandalf do without me...nay, I'd be contently cropping grass and too distracted to notice the battle [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

Hullo Nevfeniel, and to you too, Shadowfax!
Say, Shadowfax, you wouldn't have happened to come across Bill in your travels, would you? [img]smilies/frown.gif[/img]

He went through them all. [/QUOTE]

Not knowing what was going to happen, I would go off and fight the Uruk-hai, and probably get captured with Pippin and Merry. I know this sounds weird, but that's what I would choose to do. But my second choice would be to go with Aragorn & co.

I would go with Aragorn, Legolas and Gimli, because I find the Frodo-Sam storylibne kind of boring. Chasing Uruk-hai and visiting Isenguard would be much more fun! Then I would go to Minas Tirith, perhaps I could help Denethor along by just setting fire to him as soon as I arrived "burn you nasty old man, how dare you be mean to Faramir!"

Ring

I would stay by the boats. Then when Frodo and Sam come I can leap out of the boat kill them, take the ring and run after Aragorn, Legolas, and Gimli. As they run on I would put on the ring, stab them in the back and take all their stuff. Then I could go to Orthnac kill Sauruman, and disguise myself as him, and command all the Orcs to do my bidding.
Two problems, the Nazgul,
(Me: Oh no, here come the Nazgul.
Puts on ring.
Me: Hehehehehe, they'll never find me now.
Leader points at me
Me: Oh.... oh, this yeah you can have it. I don't want it.)

and the fact that it would completely mess up the story.

1420!

Is the pub not an option?

Everything seemed to turn out for the best in the end, so I really shouldn't get involved. A good pint of Elvish bitter would go down very well. (!)

Hmmmm, if I couldn't just go HOME, I'd go with Aragorn, Legolas, and Gimli because I am A BIG WEENIE and would want to be protected by them. Sam and Frodo, while brave, don't have the physical prowess to make me feel safe enough.
