I think It's mainly a mirror, actually. [In reply to] Can't Post

It reflects the person looking at it. Not exactly the image, but fate, fears, needs, desires. Perhaps the problem of touching it would be that the mirror would then reflect the physical needs of the touching person. That a hobbit touching the mirror would produce an endless stream of scenes of banquets and feasts, and instead of light, a phial made with water touched by a hobbit would generate lots of smoke of Old Toby. Maybe that could work against Shelob, making her a bit more blind, happy and relaxed. Massive smoke rings hovering over Cirith Ungol.Smile

As for someone falling into the Mirror, I thought about the possibility that the water could take something and never release it, perhaps like the shapes on the water in the Dead Marshes, but the Mirror is not black magic. Also, I don't think it could capture a whole person, though people keep saying that those who enter Lorien disappear somehow...

            Part of the wonder of Tolkien is that the workings of 'magic' are hidden, but I think both Varda and Galadriel SilentLion Send a private message to SilentLion Dec 26 2012, 8:25pm

        Fascinating argument, and very well-constructed.// CuriousG Send a private message to CuriousG Dec 28 2012, 1:18am
            Thanks, CuriousG! I see I wrote "relatives" (of Frodo) instead of "parents." Plurmo Send a private message to Plurmo Dec 28 2012, 3:04am
