Lobelia Sackville-Baggins vs Gothmog Lord of the Balrogs

 

Lobelia gets to use her umbrella! Unsure

From World's End then he turned away,
and yearned again to find afar .
his home through shadows journeying,
and burning as an island star . . .

I don't see how the balrog would even stand a chance. //

From out of the shadow a red sword leaped flaming.

The umbrella glittered wet in answer.
There was a ringing clash and a spray of fine raindrops. The Balrog fell back and its sword flew up in soggy fragments. Lobelia swayed on her doorstep, stepped back a pace, and then again stood still.
"You cannot pass until you wipe your feet!" she said.


They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters; These see the works of the Lord, and His wonders in the deep.

Very perceptive, Meneldor.

Few things are as terrifying as a house proud female.

That. Exactly that. /

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauronís master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded beggar with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

Now let's move on to the great question of our time:

Does Lobelia's umbrella have wings?



I'll just stand back and watch the fireworks now.

Why, yes. What could be MORE important?

Lobelia's umbrella WAS a triple-use instrument.

1. It kept the Rain Giants off her head.
2. It was a great hidey-hole for silver spoons & various other goodies.
3. And not necessarily of primary import: It smacked Gothmog a heavy blow till he wiped off his dirty feet.

Wings? Well, wasn't it Mary Poppins that flew with an umbrella? Just a spoon-full of sugar . . .Heart
