Pervinca Took is a guest of Tom Bombadil.
1. Maytime, more or less – but now tertiary in Gondor?
2. The magnificent one is constant. And hearty. Remains so at his final summons.
EVENDIM (LAKE): Flat and subdued? A waterside billet – temporary, but kingly.
4. Troubled? Yes, we hear she’s a convicted murderer.
5. The main hero of a botanical tome?
6. Here, beneath Orthanc and Cirith Ungol?
7. Flipping heck! Roheryn’s mate for a festival? Translate!
TOLMAN COTTON: Island chap – good material for a temporary mayor?
HOLDWINE: Keep the champagne and the claret! Rohan calls you once more!
ANDUIN: Alternative route to paradise for the final two. (Well, part of it. Arguably).
GOLDILOCKS: A bride fit for a future Thain?
12. Trumpet loses one note, to gain two more and reveal him.

I do that. A lot.

Although I am also currently doing a mammoth rewatch of 'Life on Mars' and 'Ashes to Ashes,' and am at the point of the saga where I always fall in love with Detective Constable Chris Skelton, who is more like Pippin than Frodo.

Ewww - Pippin's my brother! Well, my non-LOTR self loves Chris Skelton - I'm neither Took nor Hobbit in the Geneverse, I guess.

The brackets are because Anduin would only get them as far as the Sea, and the Sea itself isn't paradise - that's beyond the Sea. so it's only part of the route to paradise. Arguably ... because I am a little unclear about how Legolas gets over to Tol Eressea. Does he sail to Lindon and board one of Cirdan's ships? Or does he sail West from another point - is he himself able to hallow a ship so it will take the Straight Road - can anyone enlighten me?

Quite right on Lake Evendim - Aragorn and Arwen's temporary pad, because Aragorn leads by example and forbids men to set foot in the Shire. He stays near it, and his friends visit him there.
