Which Tolkien book character would you have lunch with, and why? Can't Post

I'm imagining you get lunch with the character as portrayed in the books - not any actors who portrayed them. So, no date with Richard Armitage or Liv Tyler, I'm afraid.

I think I'd take lunch with Melian, to ask her about her side of the story. She is, as has been said in the Silmariion read through, so sketchily portrayed that its hard to see her as a character rather than a plot device.

Disclaimers: The words of noWizardme may stand on their heads! I'm often wrong about things, and its fun to be taught more....

"nowimė I am in the West, Furincurunir to the Dwarves (or at least, to their best friend) and by other names in other lands. Mostly they just say 'Oh no it's him - look busy!' "
Or "Hold off! unhand me, grey-beard loon!"

            The Talking Purse is awesome, but is it much of a conversationalist? Now Cirdan, on the other hand… // noWizardme Send a private message to noWizardme Aug 13 2013, 7:51pm
                They're great at holding a conversation. Have you never tried it with your own purse? / DanielLB Send a private message to DanielLB Aug 13 2013, 8:20pm
                    I don't know what's more worrying... malickfan Send a private message to malickfan Aug 13 2013, 8:30pm
                        Hey, that's what happens to you after you spend too much time on The Hobbit board. DanielLB Send a private message to DanielLB Aug 14 2013, 9:36am
                    My purse only says "Ere! 'oo are you givin' all that money to?" Embarrassing in front of waiters. // noWizardme Send a private message to noWizardme Aug 14 2013, 10:33am
                I'm sure both would be interesting to talk to malickfan Send a private message to malickfan Aug 13 2013, 8:37pm

    Anyone going to have lunch with a Balrog, and ask +that + question? // noWizardme Send a private message to noWizardme Aug 13 2013, 8:10pm
        Actually, can you ask to see a Balrog's wings on a first date, or is that going too fast? // noWizardme Send a private message to noWizardme Aug 13 2013, 8:49pm

        If Radagast brings some of his mushrooms, it might be unwise to try them… // noWizardme Send a private message to noWizardme Aug 13 2013, 8:26pm
            Point taken, I'll be careful Madril Send a private message to Madril Aug 13 2013, 8:31pm

                    I just thought it an ironic way of summing up his character Hamfast Gamgee Send a private message to Hamfast Gamgee Aug 14 2013, 11:21pm
        Can you mention to your lunch companion that he/she is actually fictional , or would they then disappear in a puff of logic? // noWizardme Send a private message to noWizardme Aug 15 2013, 7:31am
