I hope Círdan will be the one to bring Galadriel and Celeborn together; he is, after all, a shipwright.;) But looking at what they're making of Gil-galad and Celebrimbor I shudder to think what...

If I read the map right they started out near the eastern side of the Emyn Muil and are heading east, which would place them somewhere north of the Ered Lithui, about the later location of Dagorlad;...

Me neither. This is the new "Arwen is dying", and I'm afraid it's beginning to ruin the whole Elrond plot for me. (Why is it always Elrond who gets the crappy made-up plotlines?)

I want to say a book or possibly scroll, but I can't make the rest fit yet. Crone makes me think of Ioreth, or is there another one Tolkien mentions somewhere? Possibly Lobelia, in which case the...

I'm afraid not. I don't think I'd describe a sword as soft, and it eventually bit its wielders same as all others.

Indeed! I wouldn't have lit upon the 'princess' if not for looking up Lily Brown in the family trees.

I'm a bit rusty at this game, so bear with me if this is too easy.

No, he's Maedhros. We only see one of his hands, the other's in that mean-looking glove which might as well be a prosthetic, and half his face is heavily scarred - burnt by the Silmaril?

Duh. Found her. And since 1 to 3 are all related to Sam, 4 must be Fíriel Fairbairn.

I was going to say you must be right, but who is Lily Brown?

So line 3 could be any of Elanor, Rose, Daisy or Primrose. But which?


Family with grace of the elves could be Baggins, as both Frodo and Bilbo were elf-friends, but I can't think of any who...

I'm guessing it's the names of four female hobbits, and the botanical or 'princess' part is the first name and the rest the last name, right?
