    Gah, I was certain it was Galadriel--the rest was meant as a joke, not a ballot-stuffing. :blush:

    As I said, that was the passage I had in mind. I'd also have taken 'Galadriel and Arwen' as an answer, since they are the 'Attractive Opposites' mentioned.

    Re: Two-word Tolkien Trivia

    Yes, the clue does mean Wednesday (or Wotensday). But that is not the complete correct answer, nor is Menelya, Ormenel, or Hevensday. I am looking for a specific reference in one of the main texts.

    Very nice work getting the hard part out of the way though.

    Ok, it seemed a little weak of an answer even to me, but it is a specific reference from the Appendices. :P

    Thanks! I'm not sure that the intuitive process of finding an answer to any of these riddles has pleased me as much as that one did.

    I'm glad you liked it! It is getting harder and harder to come up with new angles for these riddles.

    I would say the lesser spiders of Ered Gorgoroth, but your question seems to suggest a singular answer. If so, then Shelob - the last child of Ungoliant to trouble an unhappy world (or something like that).

    While I was hoping to prompt a Shelob response, as an answer she is far off the track.

    I wasn't particularly happy with the applicability of "mongrel" to Shelob in any event.

    Next guess: Old Man Willow (for the flesh eating plant angle)
