    Quite self-explanatory. I post it here because I wish to express that the entire Tolkien universe counts (hopefully it is not the worst thread for that).

    As for myself, I would never-ever be Erendis, the mariner's wife. Her story simply breaks my heart. Nerdanel for the same reasons, or Thingol, since he lost his only daughter till the end of the world.

    Based on my own answer, I would say anyone has multiple choices so please, all of your thougths are the most welcome!

    I agree with you on Thingol, I'm not sure I could be Eldar, for the idea of immortality seems tiring to me.

    I see why you name Erendis. When I read that tale, I think that she must have been quite unpleasent to be around for Aldarion to sail to Middle Earth and stay there for years on end. I bet he had a mistress there.

    My thoughts exactly! Who would choose that over getting rest at the side of Eru?

    :eek::oops::D:D and I like that idea about the mistress. I always prefer to take Tolkien's universe a little bit more realistic.

    How about Queen Beruthiel?

    I'd hate to be that fox. I'd still be worrying about what those three hobbits were doing.

    Fox? Hobbits? Enlighten me Squint-eyed, for all I know is that she was a cat lady.

    Oops, sorry -- I was suggesting two different characters, Queen and fox.

    Though from some of the pics I see online, a lot of people imagine the former as the latter. :)

    I'd never
    be Dís . . .
    or brother
    Dat
    for that
    matter.
    Or Queen
    B's cats -
    an evil bat -
    Saruman's hat -
    or a
    balrog splat
    after something
    like a tailspin
    trying too hard
    to knock over a
    gnome getting
    the heck out
    of Gondolin.


    Please note that there's no
    anti-woman or anti-dwarf
    sentiment in the first six lines
    of this post. Dwarf-woman
    were said to "seldom walk
    abroad except at great need"

    and I wouldn't want Dat
    (because he never existed)
    because I like to travel.
