Well, Glaurung led an assault upon Nargothrond and Ancalagon was loosed against the Valar near the end of the War of Wrath..

Also, Glaurung destroyed Nargothrond, and Ancalagon destroyed Thangorodrim as he fell from the sky, so my guess would be: Thangorodrim

I say Denethor, because he feels threatened by Aragorn, just as Sauron feels... threathened by.... Frodo? :-/

Gondor? They are looking for him, (Or rather, any king) just as Sauron is looking for Frodo (or rather, the Ring)...

Let's go on a limb here... and maybe taking up the hint that it's an unorthodox question.... I Will say that Sauron is to Aragorn as Sauron is to Frodo. To put it simply, Sauron is the main foe of both Aragorn and Frodo, and each of them defeated Sauron in their own way. Either on the battle field or the destruction of the Ring.

Actually, the answer I had in mind was Beleg, but I'm going to accept yours, because both Turin's and Aragorn's blades were remade by someone else before they used them (Telchar forged Narsil, which was reforged into Anduril, and Eol forged Anglachel, which was reforged into Gurthang).


By which verbosity I mean "Your thread, Nilp!"

The correct answer is Andwise who is, as Turin is to Hurin, almost a namesake with Samwise. There, there's your reason.

Find something closer to Genetics, like recessive genes.

The golden hair would be recessive (well, actually, it's more complicated than that ), but the dark hair wouldn't be. Though if we're talking about recessive traits, Turin did have grey eyes, which I guess were more Elven than human, like Elanor's hair was more like the Vanyar than Hobbits...

Just thinking out loud.

Tolkien . . .

Húrin is of the line of Hador Lórindol (Goldenhead). He has golden hair. So does his daughter, Níniel.

On the other hand, his wife, Morwen, is of the House of Bëor, which has dark-coloured hair. So does Túrin. So, Túrin did not inherit his father's hair colour.

Elanor was golden-haired, while Sam and Rosie both had dark-coloured hair. So, Elanor did not inherit her father's (and mother's) hair colour.

I've been too nitpicky long enough, so the thread is yours.

Learn something new all the time.

Anyway, I wasn't expecting to have the thread, so I don't have a clue just now. I'll add one in a few hours...

Okay, here goes...

The first pair is the opposite of the second pair.

Eärendil (star) : The Elessar
____________ : The Valacirca


I think that works. Have fun!

Hmm. Want a hint?

I guess so:

Hint: The things in each pair are referred to in the text as the same type of symbol, though not necessarily to the same group of people/being. The first pair is the opposite type of symbol as the second pair.

Hopefully, that was both ambiguous enough to maintain the mystery of the clue and non-ambiguous enough to be some help.

Good thought, but not what I was looking for.

Hope is the correct connection for the first pair.
Fear isn't the one I was thinking about for the second, though you're very close.

EDIT: I thought of another hint, but I'm going to hold off on it for now. So there.

Hint the second:

Reverse mood for the second set.

And hint the third:

Both pairs contain one article of jewelry and one thing that appears in the sky. Though I switched the order of their appearance in the pairs. The sets are opposites, after all. Or as close to opposite as I could make them.

Probably gave away the answer with that clue.

The opposite of hope should be despair. But I wouldn't think that the Valacirce brought despair. Of course, it might have brought despair to the evil side.

OK, I'm going to guess the missing piece of jewelry is the One Ring. Because, as the Valacirca kind of signalled the downfall of Morgoth, the One Ring destroyed Sauron in the end.

Bad guess, I know.

The One Ring is the correct answer!
Quote:
“Seek for the Sword that was broken:
In Imladris it dwells;
There shall be counsels taken
Stronger than Morgul-spells.
There shall be shown a token
That Doom is near at hand,
For Isildur's Bane shall waken,
And the Halfling forth shall stand.”
So the Ring was directly referenced as a token of Doom...at least if that's how you read the poem.

And if you reverse the letters in mood you get...doom.

Clue might have been a bit off. But you got it. Thread is yours.
