I think the main reason Gandalf says that is because he died and came back, and 'Gandalf' isn't his name anymore. He has a new name now. He has remembered things long forgotten. His original name...

Eomer of the Rohirrim, I see your point, but there is not doubt in my mind that pity itself played a much larger role in Frodo's release of Gollum than did Frodo's belief in his ability to...

You mentioned reading Tolkien as escapism.

In short- The Eagles are always popping up in the nick of time, but JRRT told us so little about them. Why do you think he chose to have them be the "last cavalry"?...and why did he not tell us more...

Lush, is that you in the picture beside your entry? Looks like it was taken after you ingested a few of your liquid dainties.

I think Gandalf is actually a Balrog. He and the other Balrog were just fooling on the bridge, but when his buddy pulled him into the abyss, Gandalf got ****ed and beat him down. In his fear, the...

Couldn't the Balrog's shadow have been enormous, say 50 feet, and his actual pysical body only 8-10 feet? This would allow him to draw himself up in a "huge" way, but still be "small" enough to...
