Tolkien Blog Party Tag

I’m hopping on the delightful Tolkien Blog Party going on here and answering a fun tag!

You can find the tag HERE if you’d like to do it yourself! ๐Ÿ™‚

Would You Rather…

1.ย  …join Thorin’s Company or the Fellowship?

The Fellowship! I do enjoy Thorin and Co. and Bilbo, but I’d love to hang out with all the Fellowship members. ๐Ÿ˜€

2.ย  …ride Shadowfax or an eagle?

An eagle! That would be super cool. I’d have to make sure to make friends with one first since they don’t just carry anyone around. ๐Ÿ˜‰

3.ย  …travel through Moria or Mirkwood?

Oh boy. They’re both an equal mix of terrifying and really cool. ๐Ÿ˜› I think I would go with Mirkwood. It’s kind of dark in there and, I mean, there are spiders, and I’m not saying it’s not creepy — because it is! But also, I mean, it’s an enormous wood, and at least it’s not UNDERGROUND and infested with Balrogs. And there’s always the chance you might run into the wood elves which would be totally cool, unless you’re Thorin and co. XD

4.ย  …learn to make elvish rope or mithril chainmail?

Mithril chainmail! Elvish rope is cool and all, but mithril is the best. So gorgeous, so lightweight, and sooo useful. ๐Ÿ˜€

5.ย  …try to outwit Smaug or Saruman?

Help. I think I would be in major trouble either way. XD Um. Wow. This one is super hard. I feel like I’d be in bigger trouble if I didn’t SUCCEED with outwitting Smaug, but . . . I’ll go with him anyway. As long as I could do it like Bilbo and have a quick escape if things weren’t going well!

6.ย  …spend an hour with Grima Wormtongue or Denethor?

Denethor. I mean, he’s kind of the worst but Grima’s totally creepy, let’s be real.

7.ย  …attend Faramir’s wedding or Samwise’s wedding?

Faramir’s! Because Faramir is my number-one-favorite character in The Lord of the Rings (the books; we don’t discuss what they did to his character in the films. I still love him, but… just no). And Eowyn is ALSO the best. So yes, hands-down!

8.ย  …have to care for the One Ring or the Arkenstone for a day?

Definitely the Arkenstone! It’s prettier and less prone to take over my mind. XD

9.ย  …have tea with Bilbo or Frodo?

Bilbo! I feel like that would be super fun! ๐Ÿ˜€ I just wrote a post (more like a short story) featuring Bilbo and it was a blast.

10.ย  …fight alongside Boromir or Eomer?

Eomerrr! He’s another of my top-favorites and a seriously underrated character. (I think Eomer and Faramir and Aragorn are my favorite characters in LOTR. And Eowyn. And Merry. And Legolas. OKAY, I have a lot of favorite characters. XD)

How about you? Share your answers in a comment or go join the party yourself!

Also, talking of Lord of the Rings fun . . .

If you missed it, be sure to go check out my post about the winner of the Silmaril Awards ceremony for Most Silver Tongue — which is set at Rivendell and features Bilbo, Howl from Howl’s Moving Castle, and several characters from various beloved fantasy books including Narnia, Goldstone Wood, and Prydain. There are many shenanigans.

It’s basically a fanfiction crossover short story post and I had WAY too much fun writing it. XD

Thanks for reading!

  1. I’m pretty sure we have the same answers for every one of these except the last. I picked Boromir mainly for practical reasons โ€” I love both characters, but I feel like I can acquire the necessary skill set to fight with Boromir more easily than I can learn to ride, fight, and fight while riding. XD

  2. I LOVE THIS TAG SO, SO MUCH. And reading your answers was a TREAT! These are soooo hard though because I want to do ALL the things! Except for outwitting Smaug and Saruman. I would die a terrible death in both cases. XD

  3. Enjoyed your answers! And YES, heartily agree/echo your sentiments on #โ€™s 7 & 10. #7 is pretty much the major reason why I still *refuse* to watch the movies to this day (though I suppose Iโ€™ll give up and give in at some point ;P). Still, I donโ€™t know if I could handle the changes made there. And then with #10, Iโ€™m starting to think Eomerโ€™s seriously overlooked and underrated sometimes. (Hmmmโ€ฆ plans starting to percolate in that area for next yearโ€™s party. ;))
