25 Days of LOTR - Day 16

Bonjour, salut!

Yesterday's winner was Faramir...sorry Eomer!

And so we begin...


First up, Aragorn vs. Eowyn.  Please remember to consider carefully your choice and weigh the options specifically.  Keep participating--things are really heating up now!!!

Good luck to both characters, and may the Valar watch over them, no matter the outcome.

  1. I love Eowyn. She is amazing. She (though not quite alone) killed the Witch-king. Or at least stopped him temporarily. But I just don't think that she can compete with Aragorn. His backstory, the story in the book, and the stuff in the appendices..... he's just better.

  2. I have to vote for Aragorn, definitely. He's always been one of my top favorites. I don't have time to elaborate too much right now, but he is one of the most inspiring models of patience, determination, humility, and courage that I have ever encountered in fiction. There's a G.K. Chesterton quotation that I think fits him well: "Courage is when a man reaches the breaking point - and doesn't break." Aragorn has passed many points during his long life that would have broken a lesser man. While no one will ever surpass Frodo as my Ultimate Favorite, I'll always have a place in my heart for Aragorn as well.

  3. Aragorn, once again! As cool as Eowyn is, she does not hold a candle to the lost king of Gondor. ^_^
