I just think she is very very shy person and has to work up courage to say what is on her mind. We must take care not to scare her off. :)

Alright, point taken, she is a huge Elrond fan though, maybe she's pointing out that words cannot describe how great he is?

Elrond was considered wise in the books. He was the repository of the history of the second and third ages, as he lived through them. It sounds like you didn't like his charcterization in the movie, Boring.

Which Elrond do you prefer, the Hobbit or LOTR? I preferred the Hobbit version myself - he felt warmer yet stronger, if you know what I mean. *ungoliant

I think that's because in the Hobbit, Elrons was presented as less complex, only wanting to help Thorin's party on their way armed with the information and supplies they would need to attempt the burglery of Smaug's hoard from the Lonely Mountain.

In LOTR he had a lot more on his mind, like: what would happen if Sauron gained control of the ring, if Frodo tossed it down the tube; what to do with his daughter who was making eyes at Strider, that ranger bum; then in the library, there was those scrolls from the first age, that were deteriorating at a rapid pace and something just had to be done about them in the next couple of decades or they would be forever lost to posterity. So much responsability, so much time, so little help. *teacher

I think, that, if I had to meet Elrond, I would like to meet the Elrond that was in the Hobbit...he seemed liked a nicer guy than in LotR. However, I think that Elrond from LotR is kind of cooler than the Hobbit Elrond...much more depth...the Hobbit Elrond seemed kind of more like fluff than the LotR Elrond did.

I did not like the movie Elrond at all, though.

True, movie Elrond, BAD, I prefer Lotr Elrond, he's much more Halfelven there. Though he is a bit weird isn't he? You know, he never goes out, sits around in that big old house with a load of so-called friends and hangers on.... Charlie Manson anyone?

Right as always, Grondie. I suppose having your tart of a daughter running after a scruffy ranger is enough to make a dad tetchy. I think Beorn in the Hobbit came closer to what the LOTR Elrond - hmm, and they both have a Charles Manson-ish ring about them :o

I agree with chika though, I'd much rather meet the Hobbit Elrond. *ungoliant
