And 5 could be Ungoliant (UNLIANT+GO)

But, er, what do those two have in common?

None of the above.

Except LOTHIRIEL.

LOTHIRIEL: Lots of love surrounding article surrounding pronouns surrounding direction. All this, for her.
2. See her preserve a citrus fruit, after a little concoction.
3. A nasal, a liquid and an aspirant mix with some French dog poo for her.
4. Damsel in distress.
5. She's reassembled by one who renders people much less dependent, perhaps?
6. This girl seems blue, though she changes at the end. And she's oh, so precious.

S: Is there a hobbit named SAPPHIRA? [Checks] Ah, she's a Boffin.

E: The word 'renders' catches my eye as being a near-anagram for ERENDIS. You'd lose an R ("much less") but gain an I ("one who"), and then scramble ("reassembles"). She's also much less dependent than her husband would wish!

Not Erendis.

And the damsel clue has a cryptic element.

My thought exactly, but I think it's INDIS.

No, it works grammatically. Preserve a citrus fruit = CAN A LIME.

I didn't actually see/think of DIS in distress. I'm fond of G55's 'hide the running answer in the clue' clues and saw an opportunity. I just stretched the meaning a bit, because 'Damsel in in distress' would have sacrificed both grammar and euphony.

Speaking of euphony, 'French poo' would suffice in the D clue. 'Dog' is for euphony, and otherwise quite superfluous.

Well, if you add a nasal N, a liquid L, and an aspirant H, you can get DERNHELM.

Well, 'MERDE' is french for 'poo', but there is no name beginning with D that includes all the letters in that word...

The last one is not that obscure. Try some names and work backwards to an anagram.

I have tried doing that as well.

Names beginning with E: Elbereth, Eledhwen, Elenwe, Elwing, Emerwen, Eowyn, Emeldir, Eilinel, Elfhild, Elanor, Eglantine.

And none of them works even when working backwards...

Unless of course, it's ELANOR from LOANER or something...I've used that once before...

It isn't one of them. But it still isn't that obscure.

It makes a perfect anagram of someone getting someone else no longer dependent on something.

Think in baby terms.

And see the clue ... I have just amended it.

Took me a minute or two, but 'baby' suggests weaning... which would be a weaner, which I think is an anagram of EARWEN.

A short one, but valid nonetheless, I think.

1. Swiss folk hero loses his end. A Hobbit with a vowel switch follows. She appears. (Two)
2. The first biblical murderer has his supper interrupted, by her. (One)
3. A musical note, a direction, and a rearranged fib form her. Take the fourth. (Four)
4. She belongs to middle ages, with a direction, but twisted. Take the fourth. (Three)

The clues in parentheses might help you out.

The clues in brackets could refer to Ages.

If they do, 3 could be FIRIEL.

F (note) + rearranged LIE (fib).

I can't account for the IR after the F, though.

My bad, forget to include a part of the clue. Fixed.

And no, the clues in brackets do not refer to ages, but rather something else...something Huey and I are both very interested in...

[Eyebrow slowly rises to Elrondesque levels]

#1: Tel(l) + Peri[e]n = TELPERIEN

#2: Cain + meal = ANCALIME.

#3: Mi + R + lie = MIRIEL

#4: ... mostly containing middle, it's VANIMELDE

Password is TARI, 'queens'?

And one, and two, and a one-two-three-four!

TELPERIEN: Swiss folk hero loses his end. A Hobbit with a vowel switch follows. She appears. (Two)
ANCALIME: The first biblical murderer has his supper interrupted, by her. (One)
MIRIEL: A musical note, a direction, and a rearranged fib form her. Take the fourth. (Four)

Thank you very much.

1. - A puller of powdered ice, or perhaps a metaphorical mountain.
2. - Like hammer falling, war is a disarray of thorn(s).
3. - To write a lot but change to stop, is to lead a column of the finest.
4. - "Let go, girl," he mumbled in a dialect, but not the one you're thinking of.
5. - The Beorian element we change at first, and come home at last.
6. - A quarter off an old ambulance with a nucleus of helium? Sounds towering.
7. - A deer loses its tail but gains small prongs playing.
8. - Oh my friend, a colourful gem!
9. - Bender of spoons, or bender of space?
10. - Unadorned and imitative? Where's my horse? Tea is cancelled!
11. - Look around. Three directions threee and then a spouse makes for a dreamer.
12. - Gulp! A bird!

12. Does CARC sound like a gulp?

To gulp is to SWALLOW - a bird, but Tolkien connection?

8. O-PAL.

10. Wonder if it's a PLAIN somewhere (for unadorned).

2. THORN scrambles to NORTH, but not sure what to do with the first half.

4. "Leggo, lass" - LEGOLAS?

Urwen has just left Hobbiton.
And Morleg and I triumph once again...

Password could be 'TWELVE HOUSES', except I am not sure how 'opal' factors into that...

And "Uri" is a name for the sun, which according to Einstein bends... you get it.

Thorn > North is irrelevant, I'm afraid. Legolas is correct.

Okay, that's impressive. Apparently opals were symbolic of the House of the Heavenly Arch (I believe they each wore a big one on their helmets).

Clue #3 has had a parenthesis added, because I forgot I needed the second letter...

1. T - A puller of powdered ice, or perhaps a metaphorical mountain.
2. W - Like hammer falling, war is a disarray of thorn(s).
3. E - To write a lot but change to stop, is to lead (or come second in) a column of the finest.
LEGOLAS - "Let go, girl," he mumbled in a dialect, but not the one you're thinking OF. (Tree)
5. V - The Beorian element we change at first, and come home at last.
6. E - A quarter off an old ambulance with a nucleus of helium? Sounds towering.
7. H - A deer loses its tail but gains small prongs playing.
OPAL - Oh my friend, a colourful gem! (Heavenly Arch)
URI [the Sun] - Bender of spoons, or bender of space? (Golden Flower)
10. S - Unadorned and imitative? Where's my horse? Tea is cancelled!
11. E - Look around. Three directions threee and then a spouse makes for a dreamer.
SWALLOW - Gulp! A bird! (Swallow)

Pervinca Took is a guest of Tom Bombadil.
6. Ecthelion?

Apart from He and the tower and the E, I'm not sure why, though.

Ecto-1 is the Ghost busters car, converted from an ambulance (or hearse in the remake). Apparently a helium nucleus is called a Helion.

1. T - A puller of powdered ice, or perhaps a metaphorical mountain.
WRATH - Like hammer falling, war is a disarray of thorn(s). (Hammer of Wrath)
3. E - To write a lot but change to stop, is to lead (or come second in) a column of the finest.
LEGOLAS - "Let go, girl," he mumbled in a dialect, but not the one you're thinking OF. (Tree)
5. V - The Beorian element we change at first, and come home at last.
ECTHELION - A quarter off an old ambulance with a nucleus of helium? Sounds towering. (Fountain
7. H - A deer loses its tail but gains small prongs playing.
OPAL - Oh my friend, a colourful gem! (Heavenly Arch)
URI [the Sun] - Bender of spoons, or bender of space? (Golden Flower)
10. S - Unadorned and imitative? Where's my horse? Tea is cancelled!

There are five letters and six houses left. I guess one of the houses is not included. You didn't leave out my favorite, did you? I mean, I included yours in my puzzle...
