Well.... [In reply to] Can't Post

I love the story of Turin, I mean sure the Tale of Beren and Luthien is a crowd pleaser, but honestly I love the tale of Turin best of all the tales in the Silmarillion. That being said, Turin is not my favorite character.
I love Theoden, Eowyn, Faramir, Aragorn, Bilbo and Gollum/Smeagol. All of them appeal to me in some way or another, each are close to my heart, yet not quite my favorites.
My absolute favorite character, not only from The Lord of the Rings, but of all time literature is Frodo Baggins.

I cannot take the time to fully explain why he is my favorite characters, I have written 2 essays (relatively) on the subject, hopefully I shall combine them and come up with one solely on the topic of why he is my favorite and post it on here for constructive criticism, but for now I shall be as short and concise as possible.
Frodo is of humble origins, he's just a little hobbit from the Shire, being a particularly short person I suppose I can relate.
I was a movie firster, I saw the films when I was 9 and Frodo stood out to me the most. He didn't go looking for adventures, one simply came to him. He had chances to give up but he didn't he knew that no matter how hard or scary it was he had to finish his task. I really admired his spirit and his endurance, I just knew I would have given up long before that. I have always admired him, years later when I read the books I fell even more in love with The Lord of the Rings and all the characters, especially Frodo.

Frodo isn't perfect, but he is an excellent example of many of the positive attributes we should strive to have. My favourite scene from the movies is in ROTK when Frodo and Sam are at Mt. Doom, and they are too tired to continue. Frodo crawls a little bit up the mountain, he honestly doesn't get very far, but it just shows you that Frodo doesn't give up, he goes on till he absolutely cannot go any further with help. If many people (my self included) put in half as much effort into many details of our daily lives we would be far more successful and complete more things.

There are many parts in the books and films that remind me why Frodo is my favourite character, I can't explain it in too short of a time, but mostly for his endurance, humility, and courage is why I love and admire him so much.

(I really enjoyed reading about Cirdan, I think I shall read more in depth about him I am quite intrigued!)
