    Arwen being mortal?

    I think that Arwen lieved more like her distant relatives, that is the first kings of Numenor, who, being direct descendants of Elros, Elronds brother, lead a long life, in health and good lookings, until they felt the time for their death being at hand, when they laid down and died, without...

    Who's been punished by the Fall of Numenore?

    Once again I find myself in a position where I have to agree with all sides: Of course the Valar only meant to help both Eldar and Edain. Of course the Eldar somehow mistook their position in Valinor for a sign of being "higher in status" than the Afterborn. Of course the Edain didn't like...

    Do you really believe?

    Here is my point of view, unfortuinately it is also a very scientific one. Fact is, I cannot proove, that ME didn't/doesn't/will never exist. So there is room enough to believe in it. Just as there is enough room to believe in magic. As to magic existing I always say we should wait for the...

    Gandalf as a kid?

    Even if Gandalf never was a kid - just imagine: Little Gandalf playing with his friend Radagast and setting the feathers of Radagast's canary on fire. His mom rushes in on him and bars him in the shed which of course the angry kid also sets ablaze. Then his father comes home from work and on...
