The Hobbit 30 Day Challenge: Day 6

This is gonna be a tough one so I hope you're ready for this...

Hmm... Gollum wasn't being fair either. You can't really reason with him. So Bilbo used that as an advantage. If Bilbo was eaten, a whole chain of events would have destroyed Middle-Earth.

Me freaking out because Middle Earth could be destroyed

Gollum could have found it again and taken it to Sauron. Or the Arkenstone was found and given to Thorin. Then the Battle of the Five Armies could have been won by the evil and everything would be so horrible! There are so many possibilities.

So no, it wasn't fair. But sometimes bad things have to happen in order for good to triumph in the end. It wasn't fair that all the people who fought in any war were killed. But good won in the end.

What do you think of Bilbo's last riddle?


  1. It's a tricky subject because just because Gollum was cheating doesn't necessarily mean that Bilbo had the right to. But, in the prologue of The Fellowship, I remember it saying something about it being fair because Gollum began to answer. Since he did go on with answering, apparently it is acceptable under riddle guidelines. Oh, and congrats on 6 days running!

    1. Yeah you're right! I totally forgot that part in the prologue. I haven't read it in so long. Thanks! :D
