I hope you ladies have found my blog by now!:) Here we can meet and discuss things that we were not allowed on our old forum;) Okay, so the title says it all, I want to know all your favorite characters. Since everyone got into such an argument "over so small a thing".

I think you guys already know where I stand. My favorites are:

Gandalf
Arwen
Galadriel
Legolas
Haldir
Elrond

Yeah, pretty much all the elves! And my heart belongs to Frodo:)

But I want to know yours!

Shieldmaiden,

WHY EOWYN!!?? I HATE EOWYN!!

My favs:

Estella
Legolas
Pippin

Vanlanthiriel said...

Oh, and Faramir and Boromir! I love them also! But I feel sorry for Faramir since he ended up with Eowyn:(

Shieldmaiden said...

Well, I like Eowyn because of her bravery and femininity. I see nothing wrong with her. And I believe that Faramir was blessed to have her. Unlike Estella who was downright rude to him!

Vanlanthiriel said...

Estella had every right to be rude to him!!! She did not love the guy, and he was forcing himself on her!

Elvina said...

Gandalf
Arwen
Legolas
Haldir
Elrond

Here are my favorite characters:

1.Gandalf
2.Legolas
3.Haldir
4.Arwen
5.Elrond
6.Galadriel
7.Celeborn
8.Figwit
9.Faramir
10.Aragorn

And I like Estella too(though I have never read any of the stories that she is in:)

And I cannot STAND Eowyn until the end and then she is only Ok.

White Lady said...

LOL! I like:

Legolas: Who can't help but love him? He acts and looks so cute!:)

Arwen: Ahh...yes the lovely Arwen who gave up her life for a mortal....

And just about everybody else, but those are PROBABLY my favorites:)

Shieldmaiden said...

I'm going to say something, and if I offend ANYONE at ALL I'm sorry:(!

I do not really like Estella....at all. Why? Because she gets pretty much all the glory! She stole Arwen's part in Flight to Ford. And she stole Eowyn's part in killing the Witch King! And the fact that she joined the Fellowship was weird & annoying. Plus the fact that Legolas fell in love with her.....was just typical? The Brooklyn's are splendid writers! But, come on! Estella was pretty annoying....

Emmaline said...

Shieldmaiden,

I'm not offended by what you said.:) And before anyone else chews you out, I'm going to explain why I like her in a friendly way!:)

I like her for a number of reasons! But one of them is because since she is a part of the Fallen race, she sorta has a to prove herself to everyone. And Estella did not 'join' the Fellowship. Elrond was sending Estella along with the Fellowship because the road was not exactly 'safe'.:) It took quite a while for a Legolas to 'fall in love' with Estella. And when he did, he was always proper about it, and was never really lovesick or anything!:)

Estella has a lot of good things about her, and is someone I have grown to love. I love how loyal she is to her sister. And she was my hero when she killed the King in A-L-B!

Vanlanthiriel said...

^^What she said!:)^^

I also like Estella because of her obedience!

EchoOfMercy said...

Quick question:

Why did Elrond send Estella with the Fellowship? I never got to read EEE so I'm kind of in the dark.:)

Emmaline said...

Shieldmaiden,

1) Arwen stole Glorfindal's part first , so I think that gives Estella equal right to take Arwen's.

2) Its not as if Eowyn did not help Estella kill the Witch King!:) I don't Estella could have done it without her!;)

EchoOfMercy,

Elrond & his people were planning to leave to the Undying Lands. If Estella remained in Rivendell, she would be very much alone. So he sent her with the Fellowship so that she could spend the rest of her days in Lorien.

EchoOfMercy said...

Emmaline,

Ah that makes sense. Thanks.:)

Vanlanthiriel said...

Sorry if this is random, but I feel like staring a debate! Let's do.....Arwen VS Estella! That would be COOL!

For me, its like DUH! ESTELLA! I think she's WAY more awesome than Arwen. I LOVE Arwen to DEATH! But Estella wins!

GO STELLA!

Any other opinions....???

Anie Surion said...

I can safely say that I will never prefer Estella to Arwen........

I can also safely say that I will never like Estella.:/

Emmaline said...

I love them both! But Estella would have to win my vote.:)

Princess of Ithilien said...

I believe I prefer Estella, ONLY slighty better;) She's SO funny! & she's absolutly adorable(yes, I think she's prettier than Arwen)

I may be hated for this, but I'm a shipper for LEGOLAS & ESTELLA!! Even though he was a jerk in ALB:/ I still support them, and I missed the Aragorn/Estella hatred:(

But anyway, Estella & Arwen are two GREAT characters, and it is VERY HARD to choose between them. But I relate to Estella more. I just think their both awesome!

Vanlanthiriel said...

^^GO YOU! Wow, I can't believe that some people don't like Estella *shakes head in confusion*

HeHe, Well,I personally am a shipper for Aragorn & Estella:) I think they are absolutly PERFECT for each other:)

But yeah, I like Estella WAY more than Arwen

Princess of Ithilien said...

I don't like Estella "WAY more than Arwen" *frowns* It was VERY close! But in the end, I chose 'Stella'!:)

WHAT! Estella & ARAGORN!!?? YUCK! I am totally for Estella & Legolas! In fact, I made a fanClub for them at one time....

Liv said...

Arwen. Because she's the more quite/calm female. While Estella, let's face it, had a pretty bad temper!:)

Unless we are talking about Estella AFTER A Look Beyond. Now that's the Estella I LOVE! She made a perfect mother, and was very wise!

But I still prefer Arwen!:)

Vanlanthiriel said...

Anie Surion,

I know you've told me before, but why don't you like Estella?

Princess of Ithilien,

Hmm....Sorry but I just can't get into Legolas and Estella.:/

Merilwen said...

An 'Arwen Vs Estella' debate? Hmm, sounds fun!=)

I really like them BOTH a lot. And so did Tolkien for that matter(but of course, we ALL know he preferred Arwen;). This kind of debate is harder then Arwen & Eowyn because Estella and Arwen both have the same beliefs. But still, they are both very different.=)

I don't know if I could ever choose! One may relate to Estella more, but they may also want to BE like Arwen! So, it goes on & on....:)

I WILL say, that Arwen is STRONGER then Estella.:)

Anie Surion said...

Merilwen: If Arwen was stronger then Estella, why do you have such a hard time choosing?

Vanlanthiriel: Probabaly for the same reasons Shieldmaiden has. She killed the Witch King, AND she saved Frodo. She had the choice between Legolas and Aragorn(what are the REAL chances of BOTH of them falling in love with an Easterling?) and she chose ARAGORN!!

Emmaline said...

Anie Surion,

Like I have stated before to Shieldmaiden, Arwen STOLE Glorfindal's place. Why can't Estella steal Arwen's???

Eowyn could have never killed the Witch King without Merry's help. All the Brooklyns did was replace Merry for Estella. Its no big deal.;) That's one of my favorite parts! And Estella also gets injured! She's not like Jane who's invinsible and makes the men ashamed because of the amount of Orcs she's killed.
