So, by "That's the one! Your turn!", I meant that your answer was correct and that you are therefore entitled, as per the Rimousky Treaty of 1949, Section 3 Paragraph 17, to post the next quote. Sorry if that was unclear. Musta been my Canadian accent, eh?

Oops. Tonight! And by “tonight” I mean a time when I will be home, when it will likely be dark outside in the US north east, but before the sun crosses the date line today (and today is Dec 5 2018 EST).

"What a lot of things you use Tonight for!" said Gandalf. "Now you mean some unspecified time in the future, when the kids are all grown up and you have a national leader that doesn't embarrass you every time he goes out in public."

Is it spoken by Gandalf? I don't recognize the quote yet, but it sounds vaguely gandalfy.

No, not Gandalf.

Someone with high status in the lore, though.

Ugh, it rings a bell but the penny doesn't drop. Is it Aragorn, possibly to Boromir?

High status in the *lore*, not necessarily in LOTR.

Elrond is important in LOTR!! What’s wrong with you?

Another Elf (actual Elf, not half like Elrond).

A hint which should indicate who the speaker is.

The speaker, while not Gandalf, has something in common with Gandalf.

Ooh, I forgot that.

Okay - either Galadriel or Círdan?

It appears that the speaker is Galadriel, but what the quote is I don't know.


x-posted with Jude.
