*** TORN Tenth Anniversary Post *** : Let the Games Begin ! Can't Post

You cannot have a party without a game or two or three now can you? Considering we are celebrating the past 10 years, Weaver and I thought it appropriate to reprise games from the past. It is hard to choose but we thought these would be fun for all so, sit back, relax, and oh ! I almost forgot ! FOOD !






There we are ! Much better eh ? Ok, First game is titled " The Eyes Have It ! "

Here you must not only guess whose eyes they are but the exact scene from whence they came ! Grab some food and go !


1.



2.

3.


4.


5.


6.


7.


8.


9.


10.


***BONUS QUESTION ***

What began to smoke and then caught on fire in this scene?





Enjoy !! We'll be back later with more fun !




There's something of everything here, The Shire and the Golden Wood and Gondor and kings' houses and inns and meadows and mountains all mixed.

....and there are Elves when you want them.

Without stressing too much... here are my answers [In reply to] Can't Post

Here you must not only guess whose eyes they are but the exact scene from whence they came!



Tricksy Rivendweller is cruel, yes she is. Cruel!

These are guesses! All guesses!




Galadriel... at the mirror?





Gandalf... Keep it Secret, Keep it Safe





Frodo... holding Sam down with Sting at his throat




Aragorn... at the Prancing Pony? I don't think that's right, though. He looks too alarmed. At Weathertop?




No clue. Total Guess: Pippin. Less clue as to scene.





Bilbo... hearing Gollum's call to his Precious in the cave





Legolas... The White Wizard approaches (oh dear... looking into those eyes is intoxicating... must tear self away..)




This is too small! Entirely too small.




This is Frodo again, isn't it? At the Long Expected Party? Looking at Bilbo make his speech?




Boromir... in the room with the Shards of Narsil


waits expectantly for the answers....

Crikey Riv, this one's bending the brain cells: [In reply to] Can't Post

1. Boromir, when Galadriel is seeing into his soul in Lothlorien.
2. Guess: Smeagol, just before he turns into Gollum in ROTK.
3. Frodo, when he's about to stab Sam in Osgiliath.
4. Merry, but I'm beggared if I can pick where. Guess: Moria.
5. Eowyn? After the Rohirrim home guard kept her awake all night with their partying in the stables.
6. Ian Hom, smoking with Gandalf before his party.
7. Legolas, warning Aragorn that someone is approaching them in Fangorn.
8. Pippin, in Moria.
9. Frodo, zoning out in front of the TV after a hard day destroying evil rings.
10. Faramir, listening to Gollum comfort Smeagol after the "bad men" beat him up.

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauron’s 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 b*****d with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

I am so bad at these! [In reply to] Can't Post

But since you bribed me with food, I'll go ahead and make a fool out of myself -- last time I did something like this I thought everyone was either Frodo or Galadriel...

1. Uh, a member of the Fellowship?
2. Another member of the Fellowship!
3. Frodo?
4. Galadriel?
5.Frodo?
6. Galadriel?
7.Frodo?
8. Galadriel?
9. Frodo?
10.
Faramir!

Oh, well, guess I haven't gotten any better!

On the bonus, I think the answer is Billy Boyd's pants...

Ooh, I love these! [In reply to] Can't Post

I've always loved these 'eyedentity' questions, though I've never been very good at them! Anyways, here's my wild guesses-


1. [inline "Boromir - lothlorien.jpg"]

Boromir, when they first meet Galadriel?


[inline "gandlaf-secret eyes.jpg"]

Gandlf?, dunno when

2.

3. [inline frodo-eyes-sam-sting.jpg]

Frodo, crazed by the ring at Osgiliath


4.[inline merry-eyes-dancing-meduseld.jpg]

Er.. Legolas? Or maybe Merry? Aragorn as Strider?


5.[inline "morwen-eyes-oh child.jpg"]

Eowyn, right?


6.[inline "bilbo-happliy ever after.jpg"]

Bilbo, saying goodbye to Gandalf and the Shire


7.[inline "legolas - eyes ww.jpg"]

I didn't get this at first, but after (unintentionally) seeing someone else's answers I have to agree it's Legolas.


8.[inline pippin-dancing-look-gandalf.jpg]

Merry, Pippin or Eldarian (sp?)


9.[inline smiling-frodo-2.jpg]

Frodo, eyes wide from when he jumps up to greet Gandalf in the start of FOTR


10.[inline "faramir - steal.jpg"]

Faramir, the ring will go to Gondor.


***BONUS QUESTION ***

What began to smoke and then caught on fire in this scene?


[inline "smaller cake fire.jpg"]

The tent? Sure looks like it might.

Galadriel or Legolas [In reply to] Can't Post

7.

The funniest thing about the answers so far is how many people think this is Galadriel (myself included) and how many think it's Legolas. What are the implications of this?

3. Frodo holding Sting to Sam in Osgiliath.
4. Merry
5. Grima? He seems awfully pasty.
6. Bilbo
7. Legolas, when they are about to see Gandalf the White in Fangorn.
8. No idea.
9. Frodo, when he first sees Gandalf driving into the Shire in FOTR.
10. My boyfriend, Faramir, as he declares his undying love for me. Heart

Bonus: It looks like the tent is on fire. But didn't the birthday cake catch fire, too?

My best guesses... [In reply to] Can't Post

1. Boromir- looking into Galadriel's eyes
2. Gandalf- after throwing the ring into the fire at Bag End
3. Frodo- when he finds that Sam has the Ring after rescuing him from the Orcs
4. Merry- with Aragorn in Bree
5. Sam- after Frodo was almost captured by a nazgul, but before Faramir released them. When he explained that there is some good in this world and it's worth fighting for.
6. Barliman- explaing who Strider is
7. Legolas- after Merry looked into the Palintir. He was standing outside with Aragorn
8. Pippin- looking at Gandalf as he explains what happens after death
9. Frodo- waking up and seeing Gandalf in Ithilien after destroying The Ring
10. Faramir- talking with Frodo and Sam in the caves behind the waterfall(can't remember the name...Henneth Anun?)

Whew that was tough!

Bonus is easy- the top of a tent catches on fire...wait a sec...it's shown in the image you used. Now I'm confused, maybe there was something else that caught fire too? Oh well I'm too beat after staring into all of those eyes to think any more. Wink

Close the door, put out the light.
You know they won't be home tonight.
The snow falls hard and don't you know?
The winds of Thor are blowing cold.
They're wearing steel that's bright and true
They carry news that must get through.

They choose the path where no-one goes.

They hold no quarter.

to my memory... [In reply to] Can't Post

and it's not the best, Galadriel's eyes were a bit lighter. And also I don't remember her eyelashers and eyebrows being so dark. Maybe I'm mistaking, but I'm going with Legolas.

It is tough to tell. [In reply to] Can't Post

The way I knew for sure was the reflection of light. PJ used several different lights behind the camera to reflect in Galardiel's eyes and create a more intense effect. These eye didn't have that light effect, so they were Legolas's.

Close the door, put out the light.
You know they won't be home tonight.
The snow falls hard and don't you know?
The winds of Thor are blowing cold.
They're wearing steel that's bright and true
They carry news that must get through.
