I got a 'can't open page' error postBody. Did you test your link? Or have they changed their webpage out from under us?
Linked worked fine for me. But didn't see any perfect Elronds around. Big Laugh Smilie

This site is so big a copy of pt! How dare they?? Exploding Head Smilie
The link worked for me but I did not find a perfect Elrond either!
You would need to go into their gallery and do a search. They have some very nice pictures!

And "imitation is the highest form of flattery", don't you think?
I have found plenty of Elronds but none was "a perfect Elrond" for me! Which one was "your" Elrond, Alyssa?
Okay, I have so far been unsuccessful in posting a link to the Eissman website picture of Elrond. Anyone else seen this artist's work?
I definitely like Elrond, although the way he treated Arwen and Aragorn was a little extreme. I think that when two people love eachother as much as they do they shouldn't be kept from eachother.
Just thought that I might revive this thread again Big Smile Smilie (/me ducks missiles thrown by other members).

"He [Bilbo] mopped his face with a red silk handkerchief - no! not a single one of his own had survived, he had borrowed this one from Elrond..." - The Last Stage, The Hobbit


I was just wondering why Elrond (evidently in a ready supply) would carry or even own handkerchiefs? Elves don't suffer from nasal congestion do they? so what's it for?
Whilst being fastidious in their eating habits, elves are always careful with other guests, and as Imladris/Rivendell was an open house to the great, the good and well ...hobbits; its good manners to attend to the needs of your guests seeing to their obvious short-comings in appropriate table manners and their incumbent ailments (colds and the like).

Besides, Elrond was Half-Elven, and maybe he inherited the snivvly nose trait from his Dad *shrugs*, ya never know do ya?
And why red??? I think Elrond perhaps suffered from nose bleeds.... yuk!
WHo says it was ELrond's? And by the way, Elrond may be half-elven, but he has every one of the traits of the elves because he chose to be a full elf. And anyway, it might've been Erestor's hankie. Or Galdor? Or maybe Elladan or ELrohir? Or maybe Arwen suffers from nosebleeds. A nasty shock for Aragorn.

Aragorn woke up. He looked to Arwen's side of the bed. SHe had already got up. And there, on the pillow, was blood! Blood!
"My sweet Arwen! SHe's been sliced!" yelled ARagorn.
Arwen entered.
"Don't get your knickers in a twist, Ari!" she said. "Are you wearing knickers?"
"Yes." said ARagorn. "WHat's with the blood?"
"Oh, I suffer from nosebleeds."

Heeheeheeheeheehee

Oh you silly people..
They have hankies because Elrond is a very strickt guy and frowns upon wiping ones face with the sleeve of your dress/shirt/jacket or tablecloth. Red is the most used colour because the stains from the red wine doesn't show.
Have guys never read Tolkiens H.O.M.E series, "the Homes Of Men and Elves"? Often confused with some other books with the same abbreviations?

For a while I thought that elves got runny noses, got sweathy when they worked hard, got smelly armpits and greasy hair if they didn't wash, needed to use the "potty", farted and burped just like humans. Man was I wrong! Tolkien never mentions any of this! Ha Ha Ha Smilie

"When the council had been sitting there for two hours, Elrond called out for a "toilet break", and all the elves rushed to the bathrooms, but Gandalf cast a freezeing-spell on them so that he could go first. Little Bilbo didn't know any spells so he decided to go ouside and do his business in the bushes and wash his hands in the river." Tongue Smilie
I loved reading your replys people. ROFL Amarie.

But a sad possibility occured to me. Handkerchiefs can be used for tears, can't they? Very poignant.

Or maybe he carries them for other people (sick hobbits and the like). Have gave Bilbo a red one because it was his least favourite colour? Big Laugh Smilie
Don't be silly. OBviously he was in league with the Balrog and the Balrog just hppens to keep lots and lots of red hankies, and he gives them to Elrond for birthday presents, and of course time goes fast for elves, so ELrond is always desperately trying to get rid of those red hankies, of which he has thousands.
