Let There Be Light
« on: May 21, 2020, 10:09:11 PM »

This is the Grey Wizard, Gandalf, who will answer by a lot of other names depending on where he is on Middle-earth. You can find his full application here. A wandering and simple soul, who seeks no praise nor power for himself. His sole reward for his labors is to see the smiles on the face of those who are still untouched by the darkness, one of the reasons why he visits the Shire often for respites from his errands. He can be both affectionate and brusque and often surprises others with his bluntness when time is of the essence. He is loyal and bound to his mission, which causes him to be somewhat meddlesome and farsighted on occasion. He is a good friend and knows how to exercise pity even against his enemies. He is deeply afraid of Sauron, but such fear does not extend to all his followers. He values his freedom of movement and his moments of loneliness.

Any and all plots for the grey wizard are welcome beneath!

So, while I have a lot of characters that could easily plot with Gandalf, I'm going to stick with the canons (though feel free to poke at the rest of my characters if you want more).

Celeborn & Mithrandir: So, Celeborn likes and respects the Grey Wizard and definitely trusts him, even if he might question Gandalf's methods, and only partly because Galadriel trusts him :D There are plenty of threads for these two. The main one I can think of is maybe a thread after Gandalf returns as Gandalf the White. They can discuss the possible fate of the Fellowship and advice can be given?

Elrond & Mithrandir: These two are two of the bearers of the Three and like Celeborn, Elrond looks to Gandalf and such. Honestly, there are so many threads for these two: the meeting in the Hobbit, the battle at Dol Guldur, discussions in the Fellowship, going to Valinor.

Eomer & Gandalf: So in the LOTR movies, Gandalf goes to collect Eomer to rescue Helms Deep and so that might be an interesting scene.

Glorfindel & Mithrandir: So these two before Glorfindel was sent back to Middle Earth were buddies, which might be interesting to do. And general Imladris threads, talking about stuff might be good as well.

Sam & Gandalf: So, Sam is at times a little terrified of Gandalf but he also promises Gandalf to look after Frodo. I think threading that scene should be interesting. So might threads after the One Ring is destroyed and Sam needs advice from Gandalf and just talking with him. Also, maybe one where Sam worries about Frodo and such a little before Moria.

Let me know if any of these rambling plots peak your interest or if you have any ideas. Also, let me know if you want to know about my OCs (I have a lot of Elves that would be most likely to interact with Gandalf).

Sorry for the late reply, but I was rather busy during the last seven days. As for plotting with originals, I'm game for that if you think they would work together. Gandalf can plot with pretty much anyone.

Mithrandir & Celeborn: I love this idea. Their meeting at Lothlórien after his return is a must write thread. I think I should start this one.

Mithrandir & Elrond: I agree. The choices are infinite between them, but I think I'd like to begin with a Hobbit Era thread for them. It could be after the Company arrives and before the White Council meeting. He seemed surprised by it as if he didn't expect a meeting to take place when he arrived. Could you start this one? I don't have any clear subject for their conversation. It could be from how his kids are to Orc movements in Eriador. Your choice. I'm game for anything and will follow your lead here.

Gandalf & Éomer: I agree and I'll start this one. Could we get Shadowfax in? I've just offered Ari a plot that would blend in perfectly into this thread, if accepted.

Mithrandir & Glorfindel: I forgot the fact these two were friends from Valinor, but it works great for a first thread. I'm interested. It would take place at the Halls of Mandos, right? I was thinking for later something about Glamdring maybe? It was Turgon's sword and maybe Glorfindel recognizes it and Mithrandir decides to give it to him, but he says the Maia should stay with it? He surely used it well afterwards. Not sure who should start this one...

Gandalf & Sam: I loved all of these ideas and it's hard for me to pick one. So, could you start with the one your Sam muse orders of you?
