    Hi guys.

    I’m new here.

    My daughters boyfriend is a huge lord of the ring fan and is planning a birthday surprise for her. Her brothers and I have bet if he’s going to propose and he texted her brothers and I the other night saying “I feel like I should be weighing in on this bet....ok here’s the hint”

    He has given us the clue:


    “The Fellowship has just left Rivendell”


    What does his mean?

    Well, the obvious meaning would be he's on the move -- carrying the Ring. Extending the allegory, he thinks he's on the way to Mordor.

    Now I have a question for you:
    - Your daughter's boyfriend is going to propose
    - Your profile says you're 24

    - How is this possible?

    Not to be nosy or anything. . .

    Geographically, if the boyfriend is north of you, the chapter title "The Ring Goes South" would work.

    Alternatively, it could mean that he is planning on showing up with 8 of his closest friends, and one poor pony. Got a pasture nearby?
