Well, there's LORIEN, but you can get the Vala from the wood without turning it.

Unless we start with Dwimordene.

DEAGOL for the password, with all the answers Ringbearers?

4. LO + GLUM = GOLLUM.

5. OLORIN from LORIEN. The E becomes another O.

1. DAUR, from RUDE, with the E exchanged for an A. A name for Frodo.

Told you ;)

DAUR: Is he rude, or in turmoil? One vowel becomes another.
ELROND: Um...he makes a gesture of approval, with direction. Twist it.
ALATARIEL: A Disney mermaid follows Indian rhythm (in reverse). Find her.
GOLLUM: Behold, he is sad! Or maybe troubled by what he did.
OLORIN: A forest turns, and exchanges a sound, for him.
LORD OF THE RINGS: Band boss in medieval lingo.

And over to Pervinca.

Nice one, Urwen!

1. Additional little woman under the weather, they say? See him!
2. The brightly-jacketed One.
3. Hear a sigh. A palindrome girl meets a confused, antlers creature to reveal him.
4. Keen they are, and often the only indicators of age.
5. Her little bottles are in a terrible muddle. She's noted for that!
6. Heavenly, loving nymphs initially mingle with grease here.
7. Foreign gunshots mingle for her?
8. Verdant namesake of one with destructive, burning issues.
9. Survivor song loses article and beast; add a dark wizard for perspective.
10. Man in the moon's rhyming pair of irregulars.

Taken straight, #8 could be about Mirkwood; it shares that name (in Sindarin) with the woods of Dorthonion, which were first burned and then destroyed; but by other names it is noted for its greenness, as GREENWOOD THE GREAT or ERYN LASGALEN. (Th'ain't nobody called it "the Wood of Green Leaves"; the Elves used the Sindarin and you know mortals just called it Mirkwood still.)

For some reason I thought the M Little woman was Mary, and looking them up and realizing she's actually Meg made all the difference, because MORE + MEG + ILL (ish) = MORMEGIL.

It might be Saruman but Joseph is correct no matter what your original intent was.

No to the rest, I'm afraid.

Grammatical error corrected in Clue 3. It occurred because I had no internet and had to retype the clues on my phone.

So the one with destructive, burning issues is either Feanor or Orodruin, aka Mount Doom.

#9: I think this is EYE OF SAURON. The 'survivor song' is Eye of the Tiger, which becomes 'Eye of', and then takes Sauron as the dark wizard. An eye of course gives perspective.

Has anyone guessed TOM BOMBADIL for #2? "Bright blue his jacket is..."

Aredhel is very, very close.

The R in Radagast is for a sigh that sounds like 'Ah!'

Sorry. I thought I'd put all the letters in. I have now. It's a throwback to the other 'colours' passwords I did, all inspired by Huey's brilliant RAINBOW one.

I was impressed that you got SALVIA, Urwen. Have you been trawling Shire family trees as well?

Urwen has just left Hobbiton.
You still haven't added A. And speaking of which, if Aredhel is close, then maybe Ar-Feiniel?

The only other possible solution that fits is ASPHODEL.

MORMEGIL: Additional little woman under the weather, they say? See him! (black)
ORALD: The brightly-jacketed One. (blue)
RADAGAST: Hear a sigh. A palindrome girl meets a confused, antlered creature to reveal him. (brown)
ELVEN-EYES: Keen they are, and often the only indicators of age. (grey)

SALVIA: Her little bottles are in a terrible muddle. She's noted for that! (purple)
HOLLIN: Heavenly, loving nymphs initially mingle with grease here. (red)
AR-FEINIEL: Foreign gunshots mingle for her? (white)
DENETHOR: Verdant namesake of one with destructive, burning issues. (green)
EYE OF SAURON: Survivor song loses article and beast; add a dark wizard for perspective.(yellow)
S Man in the moon's rhyming pair of irregulars.

AR-FEINIEL (ALIEN FIRE).

Denethor is green because the 'other' one was one of the Laiquendi.

Close - ish. But no cigar.

Remember there needs to be a colour association.

Hollin is red because it's derived from 'holly,' I believe, so red berries.

Spoons are described as silver in the poem, so there is a color association...
