Does FEDHIN mean hero, or something?

Is it First Age heroes?

"fedhin*

"adjective.*ally, friend, bound by agreement, bound by agreement, ally, friend, friend, ally"


Ah, ok.

Are they pairs of allies ... pairs bound by an agreement of friendship?

I wanted to use Finrod and Beren in a password cos I had their awesome dynamic in mind for quite a while now, but no word fit, until I found Fedhin.

Great idea!

Tell me who the trios are. I'm not as good as you on the First Age.

New password tomorrow. It's at work.

But.....are you always at work? You were at work when it was morning for me, and you're at work when it is evening for me, which is kinda weird, since most jobs have only one shift..... Is there a time when you're not at work?

No. I solved your password at home, but my two prepared passwords are on my laptop, and *that* is at work, in my cupboard. I take it in at the beginning of the week, and bring it home at the end. Because I need it at work but don't want to carry it home every day.

Here you are, then:

1. A dark fish for a hill? (Dark Elves).
2. Linger, wife of Abraham! Switch an exclamation, and take a turn about here! (Elendil)
3. Partition switches note and meanders. (Frodo).
4. A German baptism unit and a spy, note! How it all twists around here! (Tolkien).
5. Note boy returning here, (or show surprise to him, in Yorkshire!) (Frodo).
6. Disemvowelled red room in a mess around here! (Aragorn).
7. Leave him in singularly dire straits, when they all mingle here? (Boromir).
8. Sweetly old-fashioned tile broken here? (Dark Elves).
9. Rob thin person? No, place. Confused? (Frodo)
10. Place to shoot Carry On films, severally (Frodo). *
11. A bird changes its note here. (Bilbo & Frodo).
12. The first of November! Behold, heraldic fur! Scramble for it! (Dark Elves).
13. A dwarf in his rightful place, with his mother surrounding him? (Thrain).
14. Note quaint fruit with an unusual core, after an article here. (Pippin).

* Probably/possibly

The names in the brackets relate each clue to the theme. Ignore them for now. They will start to make sense when you have guessed a few of them.

[CLUE 1 HAS BEEN AMENDED]

For 1, are we looking for a particular species of fish or just a synonym for fish?

Yes. Also sounding like 'Eeee, lad!'

It's number 5, though.
