Scenes From the Hat Can't Post

Alassëa Eruvande says as she isn't on the board much nowadays for me to post this. So....

What "Senior Superlative" did each Middle-earth character earn in high school?

(i.e., "Most Likely To Succeed", "Best Dresser", "Most Likely to Appear on 'Middle-earth's Most Wanted'", etc.)

******************************************

Elves and Men and Dwarves gonna cower,
When I finish building my tower,
When I finish building my tower with the Eye on top!
Watch that Eye and see how it glowers,
Ain't no contest between the Two Towers,
Nosy folks'll peek thru' palantirs and their eyes will pop!
The battlement's black and immeasurably strong, an adamant mountain of iron,
A buttress of steel, impossibly tall, held aloft by the power of Sauron!
See that Eye a winkin' and blinkin',
Ain't no finer tower I'm thinkin',
You can keep Orthanc if you're thinkin' that I'd care to swap,
For my black and shiny tower with the Eye on the top!

-Rodgers and Hammerstein, The Lord of the Rings

Happiness: money matters, but less than we think and not in the way that we think. Family is important and so are friends, while envy is toxic -- and so is excessive thinking. Beaches are optional.
