Tjoho Melephelwen, where are you?

Melephelwen 12-02-2002 10:03 AM

No it's not Faramir.
And sorry for not replying, to be honest I forgot that my quote was up...
Should I tell who it is?

-Imrahil- 12-02-2002 11:34 AM

Tell so we can continue! I can't find it.

Eärendil 12-04-2002 03:16 AM

Me either. Or maybe I am not trying hard enough... Arwen? Beregond? Bergil? Denethor? [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img] [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

eleniwilwarin 12-06-2002 01:49 PM

Just a wild guess could it be Pippin? Really i have no idea.

Eärendil 12-09-2002 08:17 AM

Éowyn? [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]
Anyway, this is getting slightly ridiculous.... Melephelwen?

Melephelwen 12-10-2002 01:56 PM

Aragorn. Sorry for being so long! Honestly!
And I won't be on the next week, so somebody else must go. And next time I do this stupid stuff, if I'm not "saying" anything in say, 3 days, just jump on to the next quote! Really, I didn't mean to be away! [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img]

Eärendil 12-11-2002 02:17 AM

Aragorn...doh. (Why didn´t I think of that?..)
Alright then, I am posting a new quote...:

Och ändå måste vi försöka, sade _____. Det är inte värre än jag hela tiden räknat med. Jag har aldrig trott det möjligt att komma över, och ser lika lite hopp nu som förut.
It´s in ROTK.

eleniwilwarin 12-14-2002 04:40 PM

wild guess Merry?

Laivine 12-15-2002 09:48 AM

Sounds like something Frodo says to Sam, in Mordor (obviously)...?! I might not be on in a while, so if I'm right and don't post a quote in 2 days, anyone can post..

Eärendil 12-16-2002 03:23 AM

You are correct Laivine. Please proceed. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

Laivine 12-16-2002 12:45 PM


Nei, tiden står aldri stille
Who said it, to whom, and what exactly where they talking about?! [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img] If you know you're right don't wait for me to confirm!

Eärendil 12-21-2002 03:32 PM

Um...a hint maybe? I reall don´t have a clue... [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img]

Eärendil 12-25-2002 09:50 AM


Laivine 12-26-2002 09:32 AM

Oh yes, sorry I haven't been on for a little while. It's in FotR, and not said by a man nor a hobbit. That should help [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

Nenya 12-28-2002 01:46 PM

Hey, what about quotes in finnish..? I know, I know, it isn't a germanic language, but Finland is afterall one of the Nordic countries, eh?
Damn. It just occured to me that noone except me could probably quote in finnish...

Anyways: This is just on tip of my tongue. *thinks hard*
Oh well, let us guess: Gandalf? In -*thinks even harder*- Bag End, to Frodo? Probably not, but it was worth the shot.

Eärendil 12-29-2002 05:54 AM

No, sorry, no quotes in Finnish. I have absolutely nothing against Finnish, but the language, as you said yourself, isn´t a Germanic language. The quotes should be in Swedish, Norweigan, Danish or Icelandic, as I stated when I started this thread.
Check out the Quotes in other languages-thread, there you can post quotes in Finnish. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

Galadriel to somebody i dont know (just a guess)

Laivine 01-05-2003 09:26 AM

It is not Gandalf, nor Galadriel. Not so many options left now, hmmmm...

Eärendil 01-07-2003 04:34 AM

Legolas? I have no idea of who he would say it to though...Gimli?

Laivine 01-08-2003 12:43 PM

Indeed it was Legolas! And it's been such a long time since I posted my quote that I've completely forgotten to whom he spoke. He was talking about Lothlorien though, if my memory serves me correctly [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img] Your turn Eärendil!

Eärendil 01-14-2003 11:36 AM


En dvärg, sade ______. Det är kanske inte så bra. Vi har inte haft några förbindelser med dvärgarna sedan den mörka tiden. Det är dem icke tillåtet att beträda vårt land. Jag kan inte ge honom något tillstånd att passera.

mollecon 01-14-2003 05:58 PM

It's Haldir, when the fellowship arrives at the borders of Lorien - he say's he cannot let the dwarf pass.

Eärendil 01-15-2003 10:27 AM

That is very correct of course. Proceed. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

mollecon 01-15-2003 07:12 PM


Sommetider har jeg følt at folk hér var dumme og indskrænkede og ønsket at der ville komme et drageangreb og ruske op i dem. Men sådan føler jeg ikke nu...
The above is quoted from memory since I haven't got the books here - but it should be pretty accurate. I'll give hints if people find it hard. It's of course part of a remark made by one of the main characters in the books - but it's not in the movies.

Eärendil 01-16-2003 10:57 AM


mollecon 01-16-2003 05:03 PM

Gandalf was there, yes - he was actually the one who this remark was directed at. Another hint: It's from "Fellowship...". [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

Laivine 01-18-2003 11:23 AM

I think it's Bilbo talking to Gandalf when he's leaving the Shire...? but it's been awhile since I read the fellowship so I wouldn't be surprised if im faaar off!

mollecon 01-18-2003 04:42 PM

LOL we're closing in - not Bilbo but a relative... [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img] Bilbo had left at the time of this conversation.

Eärendil 01-20-2003 10:44 AM

Frodo? It should be... [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

mollecon 01-20-2003 05:36 PM

Yup! You're right of course - Frodo speaking to Gandalf (after he realises he must leave The Shire) about how the Shire & it's people have often annoyed him so he wished they should experience a dragon attack! [img]smilies/tongue.gif[/img]

Eärendil 01-28-2003 11:17 AM

Ok, I am finally posting a quote.... [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

Det förstår jag att du vill, hånade _____, och dök upp alldeles bakom honom. Tror väl jag tänker inte alls, va? Förbannade avskum! Du är lika usel som det andra slöddret, fluglarverna och markattorna från Lugbúrz.

Eärendil 01-30-2003 11:38 AM

Anyone? A clue perhaps?

Laivine 02-02-2003 12:19 PM

Is it Shagrat, talking to Snaga or something? I honestly haven't got a clue.

Eärendil 02-03-2003 02:59 AM

No, it is not Shagrat, but it IS an orc....

Lalaith 02-03-2003 04:49 AM


Eärendil 02-04-2003 08:28 AM

Correctomundo! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] Proceed.

Lalaith 02-04-2003 05:39 PM


En ef nú allt fagurfólkið hyrfi til strandar, er ég hræddur um að heimurinn yrði
leiðinlegri fyrir þá sem eftir sitja og eiga sér engrar undankomuvon úr honum.

Laivine 02-05-2003 09:58 AM

What kind of language is that?! :O Hehe. Is the quote something along the lines of "Og hvis alt fagerfolk drar til strendene, er det trist for de som blir igjen..." it kinda looked like that and i seem to remember a quote like that somehwere in the book, Sam or something..?

Lalaith 02-05-2003 10:47 AM

It is the Quenya to your Sindarin, my good Laivine.
As for your guess, the quote is correct but the speaker is not.
