Yep, that's Gil-galad

"Gil-galad was an elven king, of him the harpers sadly sing.
The last whose realm was fair and free, between the Mountains and the Sea!"

My vote today goes to Fingon, good friend of Maedhros who rescued him from Thangorodrim!

Beren, because I can't think of any really good reason to vote for him, but I am anyway.

Did no-one vote for Billy the Pony lately? Well, that's why I am doing it today.

Maedhros because he was the first (or the first most memorable) of the (by now) long list of mutilated characters in ALL the books I read.

Come to the Dark Side and vote for Maedhros!

It's actually not that dark. He's rather fair. Red hair, you know - fair complexion, freckles....comes with the territory.

Ugluk, because he was the best of the Uruk-Hai (not that that's saying a lot).

Maedhros because he really needs to win already. Also because I skipped out on helping him win last month and feel guilty. :P

Eru, cause he is still the one. you are all so unoriiginal, you know you're just voting meadhros because everyone else is. That way Fatty will never win.;)

My campaign for Maedhros began several months ago. Go ahead - check out all the old threads. Aurelin and I have been voting for him consistently since August.

And we will continue to vote for him until he wins.

I think Ugluk just got sick of it and took pity on us ;).

But if you want Fatty to win, you'll have to be patient and drum up some support for him somehow....

Image

undomiel is very original - she is naming her son after him!

But there are many good, fantastic, wonderful reasons to vote for Maedhros:
He stood aside when his father insisted on burning the ships.
He did not forget his friend Fingon.
He survived being captured by Balrogs, brought before Morgoth, and hung on a cliff by his wrist for years.
He was able to restrain his brothers - all 6 of them - and they were all quite headstrong people!
He acknowledged Fingolfin as High King of the Noldor, preventing a power struggle between their houses.
He regretted what was done to Elured and Elurin.
He supported Maglor's decision to adopt Elrond and Elros.
He had a fortress on Himring that could not be defeated, despite being surrounded by a sea of orcs (Battle of Sudden Flame)
Himring is one of only three islands to survive the drowning of Beleriand at the end of the First Age.
He forged alliances with elves, dwarves and men.
He was very tall, with red hair, a copper crown, and was missing his right hand.
He was so deadly in battle that orcs fled from his face.
He was a man of his word, and kept the Oath, despite its terrible cost. (Not exactly a good thing, but admirable, in a way...)
He is depicted in artwork by the wonderful Jenny Dolfen and Catherine Karina Chmiel.

He was second-place in December, with 32 votes.
He was second-place in November, with 24 votes.
He was second-place in October, with 28 votes.
He was fifth-place in September, with 22 votes.
He made the top ten in September, August and July....
He has waited patiently while Celeborn and Bill the Pony had their moments in the spot-light.

It really is time he won, don't you think? :D

Maedhros. because Luthienelflover posted such a great picture of Faramir and Eowyn, and because Mithluin is such a faithful supporter (and he has red hair :wink: )!

That could be true....but also, I know a good candidate when I see one. Maedhros is that candidate.

Maglor, because I'd like to see you tell them than to their faces :P

Image

...and because he was the only father Elrond ever knew.



(Mouse, that is no way to win people to your cause. You don't want to tick off the Legolasses, now do you? I'll give you a hint - any candidate the Fazguls support is bound to win; they are the most vocal and loyal constituent ;))


Edit: This picture (and my previous two on this page) were painted by the wonderful Catherine Karina Chmiel - I can't believe I forgot to credit her :oops:

Maedhros because I can't believe he is in a little "voting war" these days *recalls the time when she and Doni were about the only ones voting for him*

You all are so on the wrong track: Halbarad! I've been trying to get him up there for the longest time. Unfortunately, I'm not all that consistent & haven't been on the boards in the longest of times. It's his turn, yo! hehe :P
