Favourite character - submissions
« on: September 20, 2014, 11:45:39 PM »
Right, I want to see what our favourite character is!

You may submit one character for the ballot, you'll then get to vote for 2 or 3 options depending on how many characters are submitted and most votes wins :)

I will start by submitting Dain Ironfoot. He's awesome, rules Erebor effectively and reunites it with the Iron Hills, is just about the only leader in middle earth to not want to march his troops into suicide missions, and of course importantly is short and beardy.  :)
The duke, the wanderer, the philosopher, the mariner, the warrior, the strategist, the storyteller, the wizard, the wayfarer...

Gandalf.
I'd be more apathetic if I weren't so lethargic.

Samwise Gamgee.
Alcohol and Calculus don't mix. Never Drink and Derive.

I am Othko, the master of the 23 techniques of death, murder of the 8 popes, victor of the never ending war, he who fell from the highest of places, second of his cloning, most noble swords-bearer, Ninety-Seventh of His Name, Lord of That Bit Between High Places and Low Places Through Which One Falls In Transit Between them! Apparently, at any rate.

Gandalf.
All of the Gandalf's.
But since he's been taken I'll go with Faramir maybes.

Prince Imrahil of Dol Amroth.

He's pretty much a perfect knight. Shining armour and all, leading charges, rescuing dragons and slaying maidens. Or at least saving Eomer and his Rohirrim. And Faramir earlier on. And he noticed Eowyn was still barely alive and needed healing so I guess she sort of counts too. That's 3 main-ish character deaths prevented by one very mortal and otherwise unremarkable guy. Generally a pretty decent list of accomplishments for a lifespan as short as a humans.

Runner up for my nomination would be Feanor, Elf berserker kills a host of Balrogs solo including Gothmog, their captain. I also like him because of his many, many faults.

Once you realize what a joke everything is, being the Comedian is the only thing that makes sense.

Aragorn.

Simply put: the weight of the world stood on his shoulders.

Gimli (the dwarf) as I like the way his attitude towards elves changes also, he's pretty kickass.

Hmm, can't decide between Merry or Pippin.
Most effective elected official. Ever. (not counting Jubal)

He is Jubal the modder, Jubal the wayfarer, Jubal the admin. And he has come to me now, at the turning of the tide.

D: This is a really hard question!

I can't choose between Galadriel and Goldberry. They're both so ethereal and empowered in a really graceful way.

*feels really bad for forgetting Éowyn D: especially when I find her very relatable :(
