this is an idea that ive wanted to do since not having time to do tolkienology….however feel free to make your own threads on this, and just number them. ideas are open….can be anything from what im doing on this thread to if saruman could have done as well as gandalf (un corrupted of course), other 'what ifs', questions you have for the forum, thoughts, ideas and so on.
anyways this series of threads are about tolkien lore inspired by a forum im part of…. lotrplaza.com, which is a great source for tolkien lore and has some very insightful members who have been 'tolkien-ing' decades before i was born, so check it out if you like tolkien lore
this one is about the following
what would you have done differently in the events and descisions of the fellowship?
can be any descision, however given we have the gift of hindsight, try and justify your answer to some extent, but it doesnt really matter if you dont also feel free to use mine or others as a jumping off point and say if you agree or disagree
heres mine- i would not have lingered so long in rivendell. i know the scouts were out finding where the nazgul had gone, plans had to be made and so on, but late december was just asking for trouble, which was found in the passes….though i suppose sauron had a part to play in that, though we're never told directly if he was responsible for the terrible weather.
anyways i think even gandalf come to regret his procrastination on the matter of the ring, not least on the matter of letting frodo set off to rivendell so late which almost proved fatal
