I would have to say Elves. There is just something mystical about them, something hard to explain.

I prefer Elves over Hobbits, though both have their qualities. I like Hobbits better then the Nandor or Vanyar, though. Though the Noldor are my favourite race in M-E.

The elves have always been my favourite. They're brave, wise, graceful, light-footed and beautiful. I like all of the races though. They all play a very important role in JRRT's books.

Howdy Merry,
My fav. race would definately be elves! *NO questions asked!* I mean for 1: they are immortal (how cool would it be to live forever) 2. They are tall and graceful (like me...well the tall part anyway. [img]smilies/cool.gif[/img] )and 3. Trees are so for me. I love the woods and all that elf stuff. 2nd, i guess i like hobbits. Im prolly more like hobbits though...mainly for all the eating that they do [img]smilies/tongue.gif[/img]

Question

I don't know who I like the best, but here's my list in no specific order.

Hobbits~ They're all so peaceful and hungry, but I like the Tooks the best!

Men~ Mainly the Numeareans(?) Because they're Elf-friends and the rest of the Men are so power-hungry and all!

Elves~ The Elves are always so calm and serene, but they're also strong.

Ents~ As they would say, Ents are not, hoom, hasty folk. But when they're threatened, they take action!

Nazgul~ I think I like the Nazgul the most. I mean, they're neither living or dead, and they have this ability to make most everyone so scared. They are sooo cool!! [img]smilies/evil.gif[/img] [img]smilies/evil.gif[/img]

*waves* Hullo! Name's Tate Aisling! Pleasure!

Anyhoo, my favorite race would be Hobbits. Hands down. I mean, come on! They're like little kids! Well, they're innocent like little kids anyways. And they're squishibly adorable! *squishes* I like elves just fine. In fact, they tie with Hobbits for my favorite race. I can't decide! GAH!BRAIN...CAN'T...HANDLE...FRUSTRATION!! *dies* =x.X=;;

i like elves the most, though i am a hobbit-dwarf (the only one i've seen so far.). i also agree that nazgul are cool. i despise orcs though-ugly stupid things. with elves immortality though-y'know, because we humans are afraid of death, then of course the knee-jerk response would be to think immortality was cool, but imagine being an elf whose friends had all been gradually slain? immortality wouldn't seem so hot then.

Dwarves, of course. I mean, I'll admit that elves are pretty cool sometimes, and Hobbits are fun--ah for the care-free and rustic life of a Hobbit--but in the end, the Dwarves are the best. You get to be grumpy, you don't have to put up with living forever and you get a huge beard. And the thing with Dwarf women is, you love them for their personality... [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

I can't decide between Men, Hobbits and Ents, bit of a wide range there. Ents are great to just talk to, and then when they're roused, wow! Men are nice ordinary people just like me, I'd fit in well with them. Hobbits are (or at least seem) so innocent and sweet! How can I possibly choose?

I don't want to offend any hobbits but elves are much cooler. I mean they have powers and they're good-looking, and they're immortal. I admit they can be mean and stuck up sometimes, some races are better than others. Hobbits are cute and everything but they're way too hairy. Sorry Merry!

i must stick up for my dwarven ancestry and say dwarves had special powers too! they were resistant to the powers of the Dwarven Rings inasmuch as they didn't get corrupted, just super-greedy, and they built powerful fortresses that were near-insurmountable to assault from without. with moria, it was assault from within that killed them.

I took this question very seriously. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

MY answer is- hobbits. As a matter of fact, I would like to be a hobbit. Simply because they are the happiest folks in Middle-earth. Sure, elves are beautiful and long-lasting, and wizards are wise but who cares about those things when you can be blissfully happy your entire life? No one can knock a hobbit down. They can undergo trauma and torture and still come out on top. Very resilient, they are. They may be very very small in stature but their capacity for happiness is immense. And that is something to be desired, in my opinion. Excessive happiness- that is their biggest weapon. For who can harm or mock you when you are very very happy?… really?

Elves - the idea of immortality is very appealing. The fact that your labeled the "hot" race doesn't sway my opinion in any way. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

Hobbits are a great race too... eating 24/7 is also very appealing.... but I think I'll stick with; Elves as my answer.

Yes dark elves exist but they are not dark. They are called dark elves or Avari because they refused to go to Valinor were the light of the two trees were.

I like hobbits more because you can throw them more easily. [img]smilies/evil.gif[/img]

hands down hobbits would win. i mean if you were and elf you would have to watch your friends die (if you have non-elven friends)and whole races of people collapse into absolutly nothing.but the hobbits are merry and have good taste in food (ha ha ha)and short is good dwarves are okay but i couldnt stand the beard
humans boring i mean a bunch of the population of the earth is populated with people who are easily corrupted foolish people

so any way hobbits rock(i know they rock because i am a hobbit short and the whole nine yards) [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

Like the original poster on this thread, Hobbits. Of course, I am very fond of my dear Sam mostly, but...the simpleness of the Hobbit lifestyle sounds nice. No insane rushrush of the workplace, lovely landscape...and if you're a little tubby no one cares! [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

Second would be Elves,(a la Mirkwood) I suppose. I enjoy the woods very much (was there yesterday), and I like the idea of living in a tree! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

I read a fanfic like this once, the fellowship all gathered round and discussed who was the prettiest.
3 votes for Frodo
3 votes for Legolas
2 undecides(Frodo and Legolas of course)
1 "Leave me alone, stop pressuring me." responce from Aragorn.

Personally, I love them both(Frodo is prettier than Legolas though, at least in the movies. I imagine it's the other way round with the books)
Hobbits are like stuffed animals and Elves are like trophies.
You want to own lots of both!

Definately a hobbit! as a hobbit, you don't have the worries of the world loaded on you (unless you are frodo, sam, merry or pippin). hobbits are way more fun [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img] but not as prettyful or magical [img]smilies/frown.gif[/img]

I think it would be fair to say both hobbits and elves, for their different character aspect focus. Hobbits for the earthy harmony and elves for the spiritual harmony they display. I think, though, if I were a hobbit, I would have to be Tookish, for I could not settle into routine without a fight! I always admired the tendency of the Tooks to be self-sufficient and sort of apart from the silliness that went on in the main Hobbit culture. (And I'd probably follow Pippin around everywhere, getting into lots of trouble!) [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

And were I an Elf, I couldn't decide which group I'd be! Probably Noldor or Sindar, though, since I couldn't stay put in Aman for too long! Let's face it; I'd probably follow Maedhros or Finrod around everywhere...could be hazardous to my health to be around Elves in the First Age... [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img] Just as well it is the Seventh Age, or some such thing, and I just speculate on it!

Cheers,
Lyta

Hobbits definitly. I'd give up everything to live in Hobbiton with the rest of them. I love their simple life and everything they do. And Hobbit-holes, I mean come on, those are the coolest houses ever. I plan on building one in the future.

By far my favorite race in Middle Earth are Hobbits. They live a peaceful life in one of the most beautiful places ever, the Shire. Their days and their lives revolve around eating and drinking, so thats the life for me.

It changes every time I read the book.Elves are noble,wise and beautiful and Hobbits are just like children.In most RPGs I play hobbit because it's entertaining,but sometimes I like elves more because they are so wise and mystical.

hey there.

i find that every one puts a lot of thought into this question and i can see that, but for me i think that this is an easy question.

i would definitly say i would be and elf. yep. no doubt about it. i mean i live for ever, can see things far away, can shoot thing far away (not to mention have a never ending quiverful of arrows like Legolas in the movies ), hack things to pieces, as well as being renowned for my wisdom, and way with nature, stuff like that.

Linnahiril Tinnufinwen has just left Hobbiton.
Desipite my user name, Hobbits are my favorite race. They are wonderfully happy and simple. I am most definitetly a Hobbit. I'm short with curly hair. I love to eat, and I have a large extended family who also loves to eat. I flatter myself that I am a happy, simple person myself. I even live in a valley with lots of green hills, and have lived here almost my whole life.
Granted, I do have a bit of Elvishness in me at times, and I love "Elvish" like music (hense the name) and language, but Hobbits are still my favorite.

the elves have grace which hobbits do not seem to possess. i therefore choose the elves, but also because the female elves are ice maidens. and the males are just plain hot! lol.

OHHH!! I totally agree with Orlandoscowgal!!! Anyway, elves have little blue auras and they shine! elves are tall so i am not taller than the males and they have such a captivating culture. Another pro is that they're immortal. That's always good... except for the fact that they can die in battle... making it a bigger loss since elves aren't supposed to die.....
Anyway, elves can sing way better than hobbits can... or at least better than Samwise... Elves are also not chubby or fat like hobbits, they are always (or should be..) very fit... Elves are also more aware of the world and have more knowledge (that goes past family trees!) and they also can forsake immortality...which i think is really sad...
Oh yeah!!! they are also the only (with a few exceptions...) race that can leave to go to the undying lands!!
