Besides, if Sauron would not have created the Ring, he would have been exposed by the Three soon enough. The Three vs. No-Ring-Sauron would probably have been his downfall (at least for that age). I...

The Eagle in question could ofcourse have tossed the ring in the fire himself, either with or without a hobbit attached.

Don't flame me for this plz, I'm in a particularly evil mood today

I guess there is not much nice 'green smell' in Moria. My guess is that Legolas couldn't relax, and thus rest while awake, in Moria, because of the lack of good living things and the constant...

My guess is that they were just too busy... seeking ring-lore is not an easy job, like rallying free ppl to stand up to Sauron.

Maybe only Radagast had the time, but he had birds/beasts around him...

But wouldn't simply obeying Frodo create a conflict with their errand? They were ordered to kill/overpower Frodo. I can't think of any minor command (of Frodo) that would not conflict.

hmm.. even without the One he was a formidably powerful character. As posted somewhere else, he would be able to crush Frodo and he was able to command/empower the great army lying before Gondor.

Sounds quite logical to me. I don't think there is a proper explanation for this, bacause if someone can do something once, wwhy not more times. But we need some 'reason', otherwise Middle Earth...

I would say that, since their bodies still do not age, the only effect the choice has is that passage into the West is forbidden. I always thought Half-elves that chose mortality could theoretically...

Stupid me, Gandalf wasn't presentg then, but he was close enough to influence the water, so Frodo should be able to sense his presence (and Narya), but then again, he was very weak and kinda busy...

It's strange indeed that Frodo never felt the presence of Narya. Gandalf was given that ring to be able to rally and motivate people (including himself), it would be illogical if he would not wear it...

As I recall, a hit by a Morgul blade in the heart changes the victim into a lesser wraith, a slave of the Nine.

Frodo wasn't hit in the heart, but a splinter was left behind. That splinter had the...

Like I said, that was in an earlier version. It has changed into all Valar contributing to the erection of the pillars. One in the sea of Helcar, one on the isle of Ringil.

I don't see the ring as feminine. When Galadriel would have accepted the ring, she'd become a 'Dark Queen', beautiful, but not more feminine.

Great power, which comes with the ring, makes lonely,...

The (earlier mentioned) poem about Durin is one of my favourites. Too bad not very much is known about the Dwarves.
