What in Middle-earth am I thinking of? - Round Five

Come on over to Tom's House for the lighter side of Tolkien Fandom. Remember Tom's House is both powerful and innocent, so keep it clean and nice.

Of course you are . . . LOLOL. Oh, and good job guessing that!! :thumbsup: You rock.

Okay, this thing. I'll start out by asking the obvious . . .

Animal, vegetable (plant), mineral, elemental or otherwise?

I should say it's elemental, and doesn't belong to anyone.

It has the most to do with air, though one could say that there's a bit of fire involved as well.

Hmmm, a mostly-air-with-a-bit-of-fire type thingy . . . this could be a brain-bender, LOL . . . ;)

Lemme see . . . oh I know! Is this thing ever carried by anyone?

It's in the LOTR, and isn't carried by anyone - actually, it can't be carried.

And it isn't a storm.

(This one may be a bit obscure, too, but not as obscure as the previous one.)

Indeed, that is what I meant...seems that is the standard for trying to locate a "thing". ;)


Honestly, I am clueless here, so I will just ask another question, rather than guess.


Is this air/fire thing seen by the members of the fellowship in FotR's or no one see's it, it is just a thing mentioned?

It isn't the lights on Weathertop or warm air in Moria.

And, it is seen by a member of the Fellowship.

Frodo? When the company leaves Rivendell in the early morning a few days out Frodo see's some red light in the sky far off. Is that it? I think he asks Gandalf if he saw it and Gandalf says no, but he felt it.
