Silmaril Your Favorite Things Tolkien

This thread is being created as requested by Boromir88.

Let's have a little lighthearted thread about our personal preferences, shall we?

I suggest we start with The Fellowships of the Ring, and then move through Tolkien’s authorship.

So let us hear, what is your favorite chapter, chapter-title or character in the fellowships, and why (feel free to add other stuff to the discussion)?

At the moment my favorite chapter is “The Council of Elrond”, I think it has to do with the amount of information we are given about current and past events of middle-earth, also we have a quite nice collection of characters. “The Mirror of Galadriel” and “The House of Tom Bombadil” along with “A Shortcut to Mushrooms” are fierce contenders though.


I have to admit that I am a sucker for good titles, sometimes I buy books because of a nicely worded title. When I first read The Fellowship I constantly had my eye fixed on “The Bridge of Khazad-dûm”, and even to this day it has a special place in my heart. I think perhaps I had some memory of the Balrog scene from Bakshi’s animated movie, even though I at that point wasn’t sure it was the same story (I had only watched the animated movie when I was very young, and not in its entirety).

However my favorite chapter title must be “The Shadow of the Past”. It alludes to something, possibly sinister, but you are not quite sure, but you want to know more.
