Because they never found each other again. I thought the poem implied Amroth drowned.

I'm starting to like Led Zeppelin now because of LOTR. And Black Dog makes me think of the Balrog with its flaming eyes.

So I had this really bizarre thought...

What would actually happen if the four hobbits were raised by Gandalf? How would the story be affected? I assume we'd get a Sam, Merry and Pippin who are curious about the world in a different way...

He does, but Saruman tortures him for eternity as punishment and turns Rohan into what the Shire was like in the Scouring of the Shire.

I wish that the four hobbits were raised by Gandalf.

LOTR -- in the style of That 70s Show

All right, so this is inspired by "That 70s Show", which is one of my favourite TV shows, other than "The Mentalist'. It's an AU, and I got the idea from jeanster's Leave It to Beaver parody "Leave...

I wrote up a summary of the story idea in Word on my computer so I wouldn't forget it.

I always thought..

there was an implication in the poem that she died years later. Notice how she's not mentioned in the last stanza. I think the "earth's daughter" thing is a reference to origins. Humans originated on...

Actually.. slightly off topic

Bethberry, if you don't mind being corrected.. Pilgrim's Progress' hero is named Christian and his wife is Christiana. The book is mentioned in Little Women by Louisa May Alcott.
