Well, what I'm looking for were prepared, but not to be sacrificed. But then they were.

Gollum sacrificed the rabbits, but didn't prepare them. In my riddle, the same person has to do both.

It's the seed-cakes. (Prepared by Bilbo for his after-supper morsel, but given in the end to the first dwarf who arrived at his home).

Over to you!

I will make a riddle, but I am not sure whether anyone would even try answering. I practically had to beg people to solve my last two.....

I have to go on an errand, and I'll make one when I get back. But please try to solve it, people. It's no fun otherwise.

This one is inspired by one of Nerwen's recent riddles.

Love for two people tore me
The one I loved abandoned me
Those I didn't know tried to save me
My corrupted kin slew me.

Close, but no cigar. It's that person whom Gwindor loved.

Exactly. Orcs are corrupted Elves, hence they are corrupted kind to Finduilas (and other Elves)

The one I loved abandoned me - Turin
Those I didn't know tried to save me - Dorlas and co.
My corrupted kin slew me. - already explained

Your go.

I took them both
But left their son;
Ask not of me
Why this was done.

Interesting. I assume this is another of your silly riddles.


If so, that fox?

Not this time

In which volume of HOME does the fox eat anyone?

And the only real couple mentioned in HoME along with an animal are Beren and Luthien, who had a son, Dior.

It is not in HOME. You had the right book to begin with. I was just joking about how it couldn't be the fox and there isn't even an obscure reference anywhere in HOME that says it was.

Silmaril

The Brandywine river?

I took them both - According to the talk in the beginning, some believe that she pushed him and he pulled her with him; others say he is responsible, but the true culprit is the river itself.
But left their son; -
well, it did
Ask not of me
Why this was done.

Correct!

And don't ask the Brandywine why Frodo wasn't in the boat but his parents were and had to die. No doubt Frodo was just 'meant' to be orphaned and adopted by an uncle who owned a demonic piece of bling.

Your turn!

Another parent-esque riddle

In the land of light
I was laid to rest on that day
I created a being of great might
But the price was to fade away

Yet I was content
He would be renowned
My life was spent
I was laid to rest in a mound

My choices I do not regret
For he is someone they won't forget
Even so, I sometimes wish
That he has stayed in this land's bliss

Alas, different was his fate
Driven by his ire
And now it's too late
Fire shall die by fire

A beautiful poem, Urwen.

But every line screams Miriel, laid to rest in Valinor, talking of Feanor, so the answer comes very quickly (unless there is some trick or subterfuge and it's something else!)

Yes, indeed. I wanted to use 'fire died by fire' line, and I then remembered the talks I've had on discord.

For this I was fated
I will go on and on
Even if I must be hated
This shall be done

I will take what is mine
I will mow my enemies down
I will keep them all in line
And seize me that crown!

Turn ye back and seek for me
South of the woodland dell
Amid the dark and murksome trees
Guarding the road to Hell

A friend to all, afeared of none
Dealer in wings to those who'd fly
A fool or wise man - either one
Riddle me this: who am I?

Unfortunately, my geography is pants. Rhosgobel is near Beorn's, isn't it?

A friend to all, afeared of none - no enemies I can think of
Dealer in wings to those who'd fly - friend to birds and beasts
A fool or wise man - either one - Radagast the Fool! / accounted one of the Wise.
