    Morgoth was the greater foe… it took the Valar to bring him down; but, the folks of the first age went to great heroics to attempt the defeat.  All it took to bring down Sauron was a hobbit throwing a ring in a volcano.  Frodo never stood before Sauron.  Beren not only stood before him, but stole the Silmaril from his crown.  (And lest we should forget, Frodo balked at the end and it was Gollum who won the day.)  Beren wins hands down.

    As a card carrying member of FFTW (Feanor For the Win), I’m just going to say, instead of complaining about how the vote is going, go out and do something about it.  I saw the results, I took action and called in the First Age Feanorian Fan Girls.  Go Feanor! o/ (might not have managed to save Fingolfin and his son, but at least Fingon didn’t lose by a single digit percent…)

    agreed, lol. I mean Hurin fought BALROGS!!!!

  6. Iramble says:

    I think Luthien would definately win over Thorin, no matter how oaky his sheild was.

    That’s being a little childish, don’t you think? Grampy and Profundus have presented good, solid reasons why Elrond should win, and your argument is that a bunch of Legomancers voted over and over? Oh, well, Legolas did win. Kudos to you.

    Legolas vs. Elrond??? People are voting for Orlando Bloom, not for Legolas. Seriously people, READ THE GOD-DAMN BOOKS! I like Legolas’s character, but I wouldn’t prefer him over Elrond. It’s not fair to compare Elrond with Legolas. The same goes for Treebeard and Gollum. Treebeard would beat the sh*t out of Gollum.

    I read the Silmarillion, thoe it was a while ago. So great! But, we all must agree that Gandalf is TOTALLY the best charecter. No offense to anyone who thinks otherwise. (And OMG I love Star Wars to!)

  10. Emily says:

    I like Legolas more than Elrond because I didn’t like how Elrond was not letting Eowyn make her own choices. I know he just wanted what was best for her but still. (Plus Legolas is totally hot! :))
