The Fellowship of the Ring

Recommended Posts

Tolkein created something special in his development of the fellowship of the ring. To this day, authors use his model to develop groups to fulfill quests, their adventures which we love so much. Let's say, however, that we're drafting a new fellowship. Which nine characters throughout fantasy would you use? No limitations. Just please designate a ring bearer in your post. (And for fairness' sake, let's stay away from characters like Aslan. Evil just doesn't stand a chance when you're legitimately got God traveling with you).

 

1) Natsu Dragneel (Fairy Tail by Hiro Mashima)

2) Sirius Black (Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling)

3) The Vampirate Captain (Vampirates by Justin Somper)

4) Granny Weatherwax (Discworld by Terry Pratchett)

5) Hector of Ostia (Fire Emblem videogame series)

6) Iorek Byrnison (His Dark Materials by Phillip Pullman)

7) John Gregory (The Last Apprentice by Joseph Delaney)

8) Mat Cauthon (The Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan)

9) Achmed the Snake (Symphony of Ages by Elizabeth Haydon)

 

I'm giving the ring to Natsu. It's not that he's particularly qualified, just that the others all walk a little close to the line between protecting the ring and using it to defeat Sauron.

 

Who would you choose for your group?

FitzChivalry (Farseer/Tawny Man trilogies)

Anomander Rake(Malazan Book of the Fallen)

Kelsier (Mistborn)

Roland Deschain (Dark Tower)

Lan (Wheel of Time)

Jon Snow (A Song of Ice and Fire)

Huan (Silmarillion)

Vasher (Warbreaker)

Quick Ben (Malazan Book of the Fallen)

 

Ring goes to FitzChivalry.

 

Also, after reviewing my party I realize that if this was the Fellowship, they actually could simply walk into Mordor.

 

Also, someone write this crossover book please.

 

EDIT: Replacing Trull Sengar with Quick Ben.

I don't know enough books. But I'll still give it a try.

 

1) Rand al'Thor (Wheel of Time, Ringbearer)

2) Sirius Black (Harry Potter, Ringbearer if Rand dies)

3) Aragorn (Lord of the Rings)

4) Perrin Aybara (Wheel of Time)

 

Do there have to be nine?

 

5) Albus Dumbledore (Harry Potter)

 

Sorry, I just can't think of nine. Well, maybe I could, but they would be all of these three series, so I stop.

Let's see, how about:

Mephiston, Lord of Death as the ringbearer (Warhammer 40,000)

The Luggage (Discworld)

the Archangel Michael (the Bible)

Count Dracula (Dracula)

Great Cthulhu (the Call of Cthulhu)

The Master (Doctor Who)

Glaurung (the Silmarillion)

Nibbler (Futurama)

Taylor Swift (relaity, but I'm pretty sure she's in some guy's fantasy, somewhere. That counts, right?)

Mat Cauthon (WOT)

Beren & Luthien (Silmarillion) - is it cheating if I count them as one person?

Roland Deschain (Dark Tower)

Jon Snow (ASOIF)

Quick Ben (Malazan)

Sam Vimes (Discworld)

Inigo Skimmer (Discworld)

Kvothe (Kingkiller) - before the events leading to his "current" circumstances

DeWar (Inversions) - sort of cheating since he's technically a sci-fi character

 

Ringbearer: Jon Snow

 

People to avoid taking at all costs:

Eddard Stark - would probably warn Sauron ahead of time

Elayne - would probably try to make duplicate Rings

Moiraine- Wheel of Time

Druss The Legend- Drenai series

Tomas/Ashen-Shugar- Midkemia series

Nakor- Midkemia series

The Balrog- LotR

Smaug- The Hobbit

Bowman- Legend, Drenai novel

Iorek Byrnison- His Dark Materials

Bilbo Baggins- The Hobbit

 

Ringbearer: Bilbo Baggins (who else?), and Druss if Bilbo dies, but Bilbo would never die.

 

Smaug and Balrog could be difficult to keep under control. But thats why Tomas/Ashen-Shugar is there, he is a Dragon Lord after all.

If anybody coul keep the Balrog under control it's Nakor with his "tricks"

Taylor Swift, That is hilarious!!!

The Archangel Michael: your not implying that the Bible is a work of fantasy are you? :dry:

 

My Nine:

Gandalf- one original. even better if he could have come in his true form as a Maia

Fingolfin- He did wound Morgoth and could have defeated him

Rand- Light or Dark is okay

Narg- maybe he could reason with the Orcs

Nathan Rahl- He would Know just what to do...

Mat- He could dice with Sauron... and win

Nyn- to keep all the "wool-headed" men in line :laugh:

Nibbler- never know when some dark matter could come in handy

Michael- never hurts to have the Lord on your side, and he NEVER lost a fight.
