I think Amarie is a lot more conflicted than some of her lines imply. She's working through some stuff: one moment it's "Heed me, my heart, help him rise"; the next it's "Send your lament / over this...

:D Not Gumshoes, but also not Elvish! It's a fairly standard English word. (So are... three of the four remaining answers, for that matter.)

ABBA is the Swedish band, and BALL is the sphere, but neither of the answers you derive from them are correct (& nor is Gambles).

It is great fun to come up with clues that "make sense" linguistically, but are utter nonsense when actually considered. I am briefly a cat. ^_^

At least one version of the fall of Doriath implies that the boys *did* survive, in Ossiriand. They could have lived 250-500 years. Presumably they didn't go to Numenor, so if they married it would...
