Man/Woman of May - please read first post

Postby Ugluk » Mon May 01, 2006 12:15 pm

May always reminds me of crime movies. Like the Godfather or GoodFellas. Syndicated crime. All organized, where the people speak in Italian accents and wear nice suits and kill each other with baseball bats. I always draw parallels between these movies and real life, where under-the-table deals ensure victories for certain parties, while everyone gets a little something, like a later victory down the road.

Naming no names....


Rules:

1) You can only vote once a day *
2) You can't vote for the same person two days in a row **
3) You must state why you voted for the person
4) Person must be Lord of the Rings/Tolkien related
5) Votes must be in bold.
6) You can't vote for Aragorn because he won last month

* This applies to whatever time zone you are in. Even if the TORC time works out so according to it you're posting within the same day, it doesn't matter. But don't abuse your authority.
** This means you may not vote for the same person consecutively. If you vote for Frodo Monday and do not vote at all Tuesday, than you cannot vote for Frodo on Wednesday.


Due to popular request, this is the list of the previous winners. As each month passes, we will add the next winner to it:

June '03 Haldir
July '03 Orophin
August '03 Legolas
September '03 Frodo
October '03 Sam
November '03 Beren
December '03 Faramir
January '04 Pippin
February '04 Faramir
March '04 Eowyn
April '04 Aragorn
May '04 Boromir
June '04 Eomer
July '04 Faramir
August '04 Theodred
September '04 Faramir
October '04 Merry
November '04 Legolas
December '04 Faramir
January '05 Turin
February '05 Eowyn
March '05 Faramir
April '05 Gandalf
May '05 Faramir
June '05 Gimli
July '05 Faramir
Augest '05 Legolas
September '05 Faramir
October '05 Galadriel
November '05 Frodo
December '05 Faramir
January '06 Tolkien
February '06 Luthien
March '06 Faramir
April '06 Aragorn



Due to the unavoidable lateness in getting this up, those in certain time zones may have been prevented from voting for this first day. If you are one of those people who intended to vote, came to this place, and saw there was no thread, you may post a single post containing the votes for two different people/creatures and mentioning the reason why you're doing so.

Please do note, however, that later in the month you cannot double-vote if you miss a day. I only make allowances when it's my fault. :)

Wow, I'm the first one to post! :D Yey for Aragorn!

It's still 57 minutes left of May 1 here, so one vote from me:
Finrod Felagund - the most gracious lord of the Noldor and because he is one of the few Exiles we hear (for certain) returning from the Halls of Mandos.

"Under the table dealsUgluk"? Nonsense--our negotiations have been open and honorable. But a bargain is a bargain, and cement boots await you if you renege on the deal. You can spend May thinking of crative ways to insult Faramir by your votes. :twisted:

So here is my first vote of May:

The Moth, because Ugluk has seen the error of his ways.

Celeborn, because apparently he's never won.

And the Moth is a male--feathery antennae is the tipoff.

Gimli because the poor guy has never won.* :(









"The Poor Guy" (referring, of course, to the mangy chap seen in the Prancing Pony in FOTR) has never won. Gimli has nothing to do with it, it's just a random reason thrown together. :thppt:

Actually, Ugluk, the moth is a big fan of Faramir, and was nearly burned to a crisp in attempting to save his hero from the pyre (Thanks for the inspiration, Pen!).
