Dwarflord at your service

This idea is simple: Just outline two different situations, and ask the next person, where would he/she prefer to be and why...the next person answers and comes up with 2 new situations for someone else.

I'll start of with:
1. At the Prancing Pony, with a mug of ale and Strider at your table. Someone has just started a song in the corner...
OR
2. In the ruins of Isengard, eating salted pork with Merry and Pip...

where and why?

Umm...The Prancing Pony, with Strider (*Drools*).
1. Mirkwood Forest, with the Grey-Elves on the eve of their autumn celebrations, to see the king crowned in leaves and berries, and hear the songs of the Elves.

2. Sitting in Bag-End, eating seed cakes and drinking tea with Bilbo and Gandalf on Bilbo's 111th birthday, seeing the excitment outside as the town prepared for the party later, and to hear the tales of Gandalf and Bilbo first hand.

(I hope that's what you wanted! )

Where and why?

Quote:
Lemaly, you forgot to choose one of my scenarios, and say why.

I prefer Bag End and the company of Bilbo and Gandalf, because there is nothing better than listening to tales, especially when Gandalf does the talking.

1. In Woody End, sitting with Frodo, Sam and Pip by the fire.
OR
2. In Ithilien, with Sam, while he prepares his coney-stew.

where and why?



Tommie Posted Sunday 12th June 2005

Quote:
In Ithilien, because that would give me a chance to see: Sam, Frodo, Gollum, and the Oliphaunts. :P Plus the fact that I can taste Sam's stew.

1. With Merry and Pippin in Fangorn Forest, when they are talking to Treebeard in his dwelling-place Wellinghall.
OR
2. With the four Hobbits in the Old Forest when they are having a quiet talk with Tom and Goldberry in their house.

Where and why?
With the Four Hobbits and Tom and Goldberry...because Tom always made me smile, and I've always wanted to meet him and his wife.

1) In Gondor after Aragorn was crowned king...
OR
2) In Hobbiton after Frodo and Sam killed Saruman and Wormtongue...

Where and why?
In Gondor after the coronation, because I bet there was one great party after that.

1. Under the Misty Mountains, listening to Bilbo's and Gollum's Riddle Game.
OR
2. In Farmer Maggot's house, eating mushrooms with the Hobbits.

Where and why?
Under the Misty Mountains, because I love this scene, I love Gollum & Bilbo & The Hobbit, and I hate mushrooms.
By the way, nice game.

1. In Lothlorien, meeting Galadriel and Celeborn
or
2. Inside the Lonely Mountain, having a chat with Smaug.

Where and why?
Definately in Lothlorien meeting Galadriel and Celeborn because it sounded so beautiful and I would want to see the golden leaves.

1) Sitting in a boat on the Long Lake as Bard shot the Black Arrow and brought Smaug to his death...
OR
2) Sitting outside in Hobbiton on the day of Sam and Rosie's wedding.

Where and why?
The first. I always wanted to meet Smaug. Animated Wink Smilie

1. With Gandalf and Pippin on their way to Minas Tirith on Shadowfax's back.
OR
2. With Aragorn, Gimli and Legolas when they're chasing the Uruk-Hai.

Where and why?
Definetely with the Three Runners, although I doubt if i'd stand the incredible pace. I've always liked this part.

How about this one, choose the trouble you'd rather be in (you don't know the outcome, of course):

1. Captured by Goblins in the Misty Mountains, you are being dragged deeper and deeper, towards the roots of the Mountains.
OR
2. Standing in the Chamber of Mazarbul, you hear shrieks and Orc battle cries. They are coming closer...

Where and why?
the first. I prefer being already captured to waiting for them to come without knowing what will happen as soon as they come in. *I'm a coward*

1. Sitting on a bench in Rivendell chatting with Elrond
or
2. Standing in front of the Black Gate when the Mouth of Sauron is about to come out

where and why?
Oh definitely sitting chatting with Elrond

1. Going through Dunharrow with Aragon, Legolas, Gimli and the Dunedain

or

2. Standing on the Deeping Wall at Helm's Deep with the Orcs advancing

this is a good thread Big Smile Smilie
the first one, the three of them make a perfect team

1. Hobbiton, celebrating Bilbo's 111th birthday (and my 200th post Birthday Smilie )
or
2. Grey Havens, watching Frodo's ship pass into the West

where and why?
Definately celebrating Bilbo's birthday....I would cry watching frodo leave. I'm such a wuss.

1)Paddling down the Great River,
OR
2)sitting on Treebeard, watching as the Ents destroyed Isengard

Where and Why?
Anduin the Great, definetely. I dream of seeing The Argonath.

1. Witnessing the arrival of Eorl The Young, to the aid of Gondor.
OR
2. Witnessing the arival of The Noldor to Middle Earth in The First Age.

When and why?
the second one, the history of the elves is very interesting

1. on the ships of the corsairs sailing up the great river
or
2. inside the elvenking's dungeons trying to get some dwarves out

where and why?
Sailing up The Anduin, because this is one of the turning points in the war.

1. Standin in front of Galadriel's Mirror
OR
2. Camped by Anduin, on the southern journey of the Fellowship

where and why?
standing in front of Galadriel's Mirror, as she is one of the characters is would most like to meet

1. Sitting on the grass with Bilbo watching Gandalf's fireworks on a lovely summer night, or

2. Hunting orcs with the Rohirrim.

Where and why?
the first one, summer night and fireworks sound very relaxing. plus: I'm not a good runner - I couldn't catch anything.

1. climbing up the stairs of cirith ungol together with gollum
or
2. fighting smaug at lake town

where and why?
I choose the stairs...The climb would be worth the view of Minas Morgul

1. In Utumno, when Beren snatches the Silmaril from The Dark Lord's crown.
OR
2. At the end of the Second Age, when Elendil and Gil Galad fight Sauron.

Where and why
With Beren when he snatches the Silmaril from The Dark Lord's crown. To think that only 2 people managed to get Silmaril from the Dark Lord, he must have felt sooo stupid.

1. At the marriage of Aragorn and Arwen

or

2. At the marriage of Sam and Rosie

Where and why?
at the marriage of sam and rosie... hobbits are so cute and a hobbit wedding must be a lovely ceremony.

1. fighting shelob together with sam
or
2. fighting the witchking together with èowyn

where and why?
Fighting Shelob with Sam, even though I hate spiders or at least I am afraid of them, especially large ones. But as most of the problem is not knowing where there are hiding, Shelob wouldn't be quite so bad, if I had an electronic full-body shield and a Kill-O-Zap Ray Gun.™ Besides, on the Fields of Pellennor one could accidently get killed by a stray arrow, sword stroke, or War-Olliphaunt.

Where would you rather be and why:

1. Henneth Annûn for a sunset.
or
2. At the fringe of Fangorn when Gandalf the White first introduces the three hunters to Shadowfax.
Definately at the fringe of Fangorn when Gandalf the White first introduces the three hunters to Shadowfax, simply because I want to see it myself (Shadowfax)

1.When Arwen gives Aragorn her Evenstar

2.When Gandalfs helps King Theoden in the Golden Hall (after beeing under Sarumans spell)

Where and Why ?
the first one... I guess it's a lovely scene and the surroundings are most beautiful.

1. the nazgul's attacking the hobbits at the prancing pony
or
2. their attacking faramir and his men at osgiliath

where and why?
Well...neither...but that's not a choice...so......the first one.

1) Sitting on Fangorn's "shoulders" with Merry and Pippin striding towards the Entmoot

OR

2) Watching as Aragorn, Gimli, and Legolas send Boromir down the river after his death.

where and why?
on the ents shoulders, i always liked the ents


1)eating a dinner in Bag-end
2)drinking some ent water (i forget the proper name)
The second one; I want to be able to talk to trees!

1.With Bilbo and dwarves when those three trolls were turned to stone...

or

2.Fighting alongside Aragorn, Legolas, and Gimli at Minas Tirith.

Where and Why?

1)going to Amon
or
2) staying in ME wth the other elves
2,staying in ME with the other elves because of the fellowship among them

1.Visit the Lothrorien and have chat with Celeborn

2.Dancing with Merry and Pippin on the table in The Golden Hall

Where and Why ?

or
2)riding a Meara like Shadowfax
1.on the back of an eagle !!! What a wiew !!!

1.Join the council at Elronds

2.In MT with Boromir and Faramir when they say their farewell

Where and Why ?
the council, rivendel is one of my favorit eplace in ME

1)reading in rivendell
or
2)walking in Lorien (in ME)
Reading in Rivendell coz I've got a back bad - but imagine reading LOTR in Rivendell !!!!!!


1. Walking in Fangorn with Treebeard

or

2. Having a chat with Tom Bombadil
talking with Tom. i love his lines. (not Treebeards impressoins of him in TTT extended edition Wink Smilie)

in Numenor
or
in Beleriand
I would have to say in numenor...

1) riding with Gandalf and Pippin to Gondor,

OR

2) Riding with Gandalf and the dwarves on the eagles

Where and Why?
the eagles. i dont like going to someplace right before war
1)going to the entmoot
or
2)going to the council of Elrond
2.going to the council with Elrond cos it would have been interesting to listen to what they all meant about the ring

1.When Legolas learned how to use his 1st bow

2.When Eowen learned how to use her 1st sword

Where and Why?
learning with Legolas....I can already fence

1)with the Istari that came to ME
or
2)staying in Valinor
when the istari came to ME cuz i love Gandalf, Radagast and all of the wizards (ok not a very good reason but i couldnt think of another one.)

with Aragorn Legolas and Gimli @ the battle of Helms Deep
Or
with Gandalf when he came to Helms Deep
with gandalf when he came to helms deep, it always seemed like such a triumphant moment!

1) with aragorn and co. through the paths of the dead

OR

2) with Eowyn and Merry with the rohirrim

where and why?
I chose the Paths of The Dead, I hope Aragorn's will would give me the strength and courage to make it. I always wondered what it would be like to enter The Mountain, which even Gimli the Dwarf, proud and corageous as he was, was frightened to enter.

1. With Gandalf and Aragorn, during their long search for Gollum before the War.
OR
2. With Elladan and Elrohir on one of their Orc-killing raids.

Where and Why?
the first one, I'd go searching for gollum. sounds exciting, yeah, but not as dangerous as hunting orcs... on the other hand, together two nice elves... I'll think about it.

1- marching from bag end to his new home together with frodo, sam and pip
or
2- stealing food from farmer maggot together with merry and pippin
stealing food from farmer maggott cuz it is fun to annoy people!!!

1) With Frodo when he and Sam are about to throw the Ring into Mount Doom and Gollum kindly interupts them
Or
2) With Aragorn, Legolas, Gandalf, Gimli, ect when they ride to keep Sauron's eye off Frodo
Where and Why?
well, with aragorn and legolas and gimli, i wouldn't want to fall and burn, and you could see the whole thing destroying and everything from where they were... at a safer distance.

1. When Bilbo puts on the ring and disappears in front of the hobbits
or
2. with frodo and sam when Galadriel lets them look into her mirror

when and why?
*thinks* In the Shire, because I'd probably go to the birthday party first. Smile Smilie

1. Aragorn's Coronation(just the ceremony itself)
OR
2. Bilbo's 111th Birthday Party
I think the birthday party would be much more fun.

Which and why?

1) On the dock to watch the Ringbearers leave Middle-earth.
or
2) On the beach to see the first arrival of the Númenoreans.
On the beach to see the first Númenoreans....The leaving of the Ringbearers always made me cry... Very Sad Smilie

1) Sitting under the window ledge listening to Gandalf tell Frodo about the ring with Sam,

OR!

2) Sitting with Frodo, Sam, and Gollum outside the Black Gate wondering how you're going to get in?

Where and Why?
siting under the window sill, im alergic to horrible deaths and unimaginable pain

fighting gothmog?
or
fighting sauron?

where and why?
um, fighting Gothmog....he looks better

running through rohan
or
running to wheater top?
Running through Rohan, for there aren't any bad guys chasing us there and the Black Riders scare the Heebee-jeebees out of me!!!

1) With Sam seeing his first Oliphaunt.
or
2) With Tuor when he met Voronwë.

Where and Why?
With Tuor. It would be incredible to be in Beleriand in the First Age. Not to mention the incredible circumstances in wich they met...

1. Having a pint and pipe with Merry and Pip in a Buckland inn

OR

2. Talking to Thorin and Company during their evening in Bag End

Where and Why?
2,talking with the dwarfes, it would have been nice knowing them

1)Being with Pippin when he was looking at the Palantir

Where and Why ?
