Thanks, Susan!

My guess at Aragorn_Protector's riddle is Shelob.

In any case, as I owe a riddle submission to this thread here it is below:

No flowery destiny, I become one with flour ground.
Inside a hole, a smaller hole opens round.
I'm planted inside, taken out when baked gold.
Served with tea, shared with kin, or at an Inn sold.

My guess for Gandalf_theGrey's is bread.

dragoneyes:

Very good guess, though I'm looking for something a bit more specific.

If no one else comes closer, I'll accept your guess as the correct answer.

Meanwhile, think Shire!

D'ya mind if I add a riddle for people to work on?

I walk through your dreams,
I cannot be seen,
I fly like a bird,
But I'm caged in your head.

Incidently Happy New Year.

Wherever you´ll find me
I will come and heal
not human, or wizard
nor dwarf with a beard
I´m green and you´ll see me
in forsts deep
and those that use me
awake from dark sleep

Who/What am I?

Can I do another? Pretty Please?

I come to you when you
do not expect me
I heal and I wound
and encant thee.
You feel your life
is totally new
it is full of grace
that is what I do.

Gandalf the White sounds like a good answer, but I still want to list something else that it makes me think of:
Hope

I'd say dreams, but only because hope and Gandalf are taken.

Love and hope are both correct. I was making it on love, but then I figured hope fits, too.
BTW...
Thank you, Garen LiLorian !

A lonely tear
For some so fair

From land afar

The search of the Ents for the Entwives. Or the Entwives themselves. Or the Brown Lands. Or something along those lines.

Oh tough one!

My guesses are Aragorn, the Palantir, or fate. I have my reasons for guessing these, but I don't think any are correct.

Hint? [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

The other cynicist makes a guess: a lie.

"Men are ensnared - by lies
kingdoms are destroyed - by men ensnared by lies
plans are ruined - by men believing the lie instead of the truth
love is broken - by lie told by/of the loved one
wars are fought - because of lies... (rather well timed reminder I'd say)
The wielder of the weapon
escapes without harm... - all too often."

If I got it right, the please go on and make next one someone. I'm lousy at in'venting them.
