Urwen has just left Hobbiton.
3. Vana (Van+A)

The last one must be Pimpernel, but I have no luck fitting that in.

The wording of the clue refers to his nickname.

DAISY: She's a wheel known (and used) by typists in the recent past.
LALAITH: Metal Indian dish rotates to reveal her.
VANA: Add note to the man (a singer, indeed!) - all for her.
PERVINCA: An adder may also be a setter! But shake it to see. *
NINIEL: She tangles a cloth.
???N???:Wizard with sparkle, but confusingly, it's not a him, but a her!
ELANOR: Article about an actor's part, or is it the other way round? Work it out. For her.

* Don't try this at home. Or outside. Or anywhere else!

THEME: SISTERS

VAN = Van the Man (Van Morrison).

Have a go at constructing Pimpernel. Try a non-Tolkien wizard.

Correct!

And over to the *next* setter, Urwen.

P.S. I accidentally made Lalaith and Urwen sisters the other night, and later realised and changed Urwen to Niniel. (In my defence, I was very tired).

Whose other name was one of the clues.


And this time, I did solve the whole thing all by myself.


Will come up with a new one shortly.

I knew it as a meal before I realised it was also the name of the utensil it's served in.

Not all letters are first ones, and Finrod isn't the password.

Last one: ARANEL (noble elf) or one of his other names, such as DIOR?

Are they all descendants of Finwe? (Don't hit me … I'm not as First-Age-Fluent as the rest of you).

N: A direction appears in a new form. Spin it for her.

'A new form' seems to suggest an anagrammised version of 'new.' Trouble is, putting an R into 'new' doesn't reform the 'new.'

I am trying to get the clue to justify doubling new - with the R for direction, we'd have NERWEN - but we'd also have an extra W.

Well, if we take (Tarn) AELUIN, change the U to another E, add the Roman numeral D and mix it all up, we can get EARENDIL.

Just thinking - from Finwe's union with Miriel, we get Silmarils, Rings, possibly Palantiri, an alphabet ….

But from Finwe's union with Indis, we get people who are still around.

No, the lake is from the real life. It's one of the Great Lakes, to be precise.

Ah, ok. I did try it with Lake Erie first, thinking a shorter name would be more likely, but didn't get there.

IRIME.

ERIE + M, and turn one of the E's into an I.

Nope.

Big hint incoming.

It's.....a lesser known name of an Elven-King of whom the harpists sadly sing.

ERENION. Erie - e + o + nine?

I have a feeling my spelling is wrong.

Here you are, then:

1. Seventies frozen foods find her, after a second vowel shift.
2. Prudish and inflamed? She isn’t half a muddle!
3. Fateful lady: a virgin, she, however aberrant.
4. Mournful song changes note and Italian grandmother loses head for her.
5. Regret purchase? From what we hear, yes – or does she?
6. She’s no Cyclops, we hear, and a French sea swishes around her.
7. She falls into deception and chaos.
8. Swallowing back metal, sailors mingle for her.
9. Something the Cheshire Cat might say, quite truthfully. There’s spin, though, before she’s revealed.

And I can't find any names of frozen foods from 1970s either. The best I could find were generic things (frozen pizza, frozen desserts, frozen oven chips, frozen ready meals....)
