Of course we love you Fangorn, but, we are hasty folk. And so, our decision was made far to quick... Anyway, you might not be my favourite ent in ME, you are definatly my favourite ent in TR (or in TE)! Love, Aeleorn
Aeleorn, the ranger woman. You know, from that weird story about a she-elf and a ranger woman, meeting a hobbit in Haysend... Oh yes, and something about Gondorian rangers, elves and hobbits chasing evil bats.
Hey, Fangorn, don't be sad! ;D I, at least, chose Treebeard. I like Quickbeam a lot, he was a good "young" fellow and very nice to the hobbits, but truth be told, if I could meet an Ent, I'd want to meet Treebeard, the eldest and wisest of all Ents.

Ever since I read the description of Treebeard as seen through the eyes of the hobbits, especially Pippin's as he described Treebeard's eyes.....I was hooked on Treebeard!
"But at the moment the hobbits noted little but the eyes. These deep eyes were now surveying them, slow and solemn, but very penetrating. They were brown, shot with a green light. Often afterwards Pippin tried to describe his first impression of them:
'One felt as if there was an enormous well behind them, filled up with ages of memory and long, slow, steady thinking; but their surface was sparkling with the present; like sun shimmering on the outer leaves of a vast tree, or on the ripples of a very deep lake. I don't know, but it felt as if something that grew in the ground -- asleep, you might say, or just feeling itself as something between root-tip and leaf-tip, between deep earth and sky had suddenly waked up, and was considering you with the same slow care that it had given to its own inside affairs for endless years.' "
So how can you not pick Treebeard after being scrutinized like that?! lol!
"You stand between me and my lord and kin. Begone, if you be not deathless! For living or dark undead, I will smite you, if you touch him!"
