Man/Woman of October

Postby Ugluk » Wed Oct 01, 2008 1:35 am

October's a lovely month. It's a time where it's socially acceptable to have costume parties, and as we all know, costume parties are nothing more than a good excuse to dress up like characters from Lord of the Rings!

Anyway.



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 Beren 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 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
May '06 The Moth
June '06 Eomer
July '06 Faramir
August '06 Boromir
September '06 Faramir
October '06 Celeborn
November '06 Bill the Pony
December '06 Faramir
January '07 Maedhros
February '07 Ugluk
March '07 Rosie
April '07 Arwen
May '07 Bilbo
June '07 Legolas
July '07 Shadowfax
August '07 Gandalf
September '07 Elrond
October '07 Feanor
November '07 Gil-galad
December '07 Bard
January '08 Maedhros
February '08 Maglor
March '08 Legolas
April '08 Maedhros
May '08 Smaug
June '08 Frodo
July '08 Maedhros
August '08 Eowyn
September '08 Beren

If you missed voting the first day due to time zones, you may vote twice for the missed day and the current day. This only applies for the first day of the month. If you are going to be gone for several days, you may not post multiple votes in a single post, to have them "apply" for later days. They will not be counted.

MoME 2013 results are in!

The Sons of Fëanor re-embodied in the beginning of the Fourth Age? Yes, for The Maedhros and Tygarya Saga – and, as fire-hearted as ever!

On my way to Morannon on the Walk to Rivendell and Beyond!

The Fox because that was always a kinda surreal moment in LOTR....I imagine Tolkien spending a fair few minutes pondering over that scene, wondering whether to leave it in or not.

Pippin because Ugluk's mention of Tolkien's ponderings made me think of the craziness that is the creation of Pippin from two characters from the first drafts and versions. All those name and character trait switches....:D! That's the JRRT we love!!

The Fox - because he's an important character. Without him, the entire scope of Lord of the Rings changes.

Legolas because he shot a Nazgul. In the dark. That has to go down as one of the top 10 most badass moments in all of literature.

:D Ugluk, even though I'm already unashamedly biased, I would have to agree. :heart:

Legolas for Ugluk's reason.
