Thread: Gollum in the Undying Lands
He was not wholely evil of cource and there was yet a change that he could be healed but being lived so long i think that sadly he would have died the second when the ring was destroyed.
Anyway I think that he would absolutely refuse to board a ship where there would be fierce elves with bright eyesses!
Gollum was born TA c. 2430 and took the Ring from Deagol in TA 2463 (according to Appendix B to LotR.) This would make him about 589 years old when the Ring and he were destroyed. I believe had he not gone into the fiery Crack of Doom with the Ring, but had stayed alive with Frodo and Sam, after it and Frodo's finger somehow slipped out of his hand, then his physical body would have started reverting towards his actual age and he would soon have died a desiccated husk full of failed organs. Almost like a staked vampire, but not yet crumbling to dust. Much more better the Professor's ending.
He would never have been allowed into the West, because he had gained the Ring through murder.
If hobbits are of mankind, and Gollum was a hobbit, does this make him one of, if not the oldest Man?
Meanwhile back to Gollum and: would he have, could he have been invited to Valinor, if he had.....
I wonder was it a divine plan for Golum to be the one to actually destroy the ring? Gandalf felt something and said so to Frodo in Moria.
And one last thing to ask: Suppose Smeagol was granted place in Valimar in the West, what shape would his restired soul have- Smeagol or Golum?
Gollum was the twisted evil that the ring had infused in him.
For your sake I will take this idea for one can be healed from the touch of evil.
Yet again I will place a question: Do you think Smeagol would like to live in Valimar?
Since this thread is about Golum/Smeagol and it's possible future, and after we assume he will not be confortably living among elves, can any one think of a place in Middle Earth, where Smeagol may have his happyly ever after? And where would Golum?...
p.s.Naturally we must assume also that one of them survived and the ring was destroyed despite that.
