Hmmm. I wonder if I could get an upgrade like that.

Really? But there is a character in the books (living) during the books. That's the one I'm after.
Give up?

Or Elladan! And Elrohir! ...You know, I had a pair of mechanical pencils named Elladan and Elrohir. All black with the cheap green grip... you know. They were the same brand, but I could tell them apart. Oh, and then there was Elros, too. He was the coolest pencil ever. He looked exactly like the other two, only I could tell him apart too. Man, I miss those pencils. I always loose the cool ones. LIke I used to have ones at the beginning of last year named Hector, Achilles, Agamemnon, AND Aeneas - all of them were lost within several months. I'm just really bad with keeping mechanical pencils...

Uh.... Riiiggghhtttt.... moving on.....

OOOOh, I know who Steve is talking about - FIGWIT! :lol:

Glorfindel is a famous head Elf type elf that helped the hobbits reach rivendell and get away from the nazgul (sorta messed THAT up in the movies, eh?)


Good :) Name another blood relative of Arwen's - other than her brothers or Elrond.

Okay - I'm starting to think I'm crazy. Because if Sam or Josh don't know who I'm talking about, then maybe it just doesn't exist. Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't Arwen have a grandmother living in Middle-earth somewhere?

Galadriel is her Grammie, Elrond's Mother in Law.

But I don't know if you are on crack or not. :wink:

I was just jokin around. She's got a lot of relatives. Uh... Elrond, Elros, Elrohir, Galadriel, Celeborn, Celebrian, any descendent of Elros, which would make quite a few, including other dunedain, i'm guessing... not directly, but in a lot of indirect ways.

idoron - you don't know figwit? muahahah... You're going to be sorry you asked.... *suspense*

(see new topic entitled "figwit lives" to find out more....)(
