It was an important point [In reply to] Can't Post

A critical point, if not the critical point. I think of Galadriel's quote:

'Your quest stands on the edge of a knife. Stray a little, and it will fail to the ruin of all. Yet hope remains if all the Fellowship remains true.'

Of course it did fail, in a sense; the Fellowship did not defeat Sauron or destroy the Ring. However it was redeemed and Frodo and Sam's fellowship saw it through to the end.

I think that if Tuor had despaired, or had refused the Sea-calling, there would have been a hope for redemption of the mistake. He might have suffered a hardship-- a theme in Tolkien, a Purgatorial redemption(Al a Frodo)--, or it might have passed to another to fulfill(Al a Boromir).

Call me Rem. Rembrethil is a lot to type!!
