Woop! A purse thread! [In reply to] Can't Post

*Applauds Bombadil*

I hope the purse escaped the petrification process. Having dropped out of the Trolls pocket, the purse was able to escape into a bush. There he stayed, until a stray Ent picked him up. The Ent then helped Mr.Purse find Mrs.Purse. The journey was long, and fraught with danger. They had to cross mountains, deserts, rivers and glaciers. They never found Mrs.Purse, but the Ent and Mr.Purse became best of friends. Until the purse ripped ...

probably not [In reply to] Can't Post

The trolls were naked in the Fellowship of the Ring, so hopefully the purse escaped the trolls' fate.

He turns to stone where it counts (spoiler) [In reply to] Can't Post

Including his shorts or loin cloth or whatever he's wearing.

At least they (his clothes and his pocket and purse) should... Tokien makes a point of saying that it was very fortunate that the key to the trolls' lair fell out of William's (?) pocket before he was turned to stone. It is implied that everything he was wearing and everything he had in his pockets would have turned to stone and they likely would not have found Glamdring, Orcrist and "Sting."

The Purse orchestrated the whole book [In reply to] Can't Post

The purse escaped, but with a lust for vengeance on the company. He infomed the goblins about the company in the Misty Mountains. It was he that pushed Bombur into the river. He told Smaug that Bilbo had taken some treasure. He became Bolg's servant and was the reason for the Bo5A. He dropped the rock on Bilbo.

Makes sense... [In reply to] Can't Post

... similar, I think, to how wearing the Ring makes one *completely* invisible, clothes, sword, and all.

Forgive him [In reply to] Can't Post

He eventually repaid his debts when he tackled Gollum into the lava, sacrificing himself for the good of the free peoples of Middle Earth.

How great would it be if the sacks put over the Dwarves each had distinct voices/personalities/backstories/agendas? [In reply to] Can't Post

With three films, we have more than enough time for it now! Tongue

My Top 5 Wish List for "The Hobbit"
5. Legolas will surf down Smaug's neck
4. Bilbo will be revealed to a Robot
3. Naked PJ cameo as Ghan-Buri-Ghan
2. Use of not only 3D, but smell-o-vision, plus the inclusion of axes coming out of the seats and poking the audience when appropriate
1. Not only keep the claim that Thorin & Co. ran amok in Mirkwood "molesting people", but depict said incident in vivid detail!!!!!
