Was that already in a song, or did you make it up on the spot? :P

Yup, your turn.

What, you don't recognize it? :P

Describe three characters named "Bill" in Tolkien's legendarium - surnames (if applicable) and races included.

No, I don't. You know I was raised with the Tale of Tinuviel and such. ;)

Bill Ferny, human, of Bree, who betrayed and cheated the four Hobbits;
Bill the pony, bought from Bill Ferny, who carried the Hobbits'/Fellowship's packs (and Frodo, some of the time) from Bree to the Doors of Durin;
Bill the Stone Troll, one of the three tricked by Gandalf into arguing until dawn over the proper way to cook thirteen Dwarves and a Burrahobbit.

Ah, good times. :)

Your answer is correct in so far as it goes, but is not quite complete.

Bill the Troll's surname was Huggins, but let ED take the next question!

Oh yes. I forgot that. Thanks.

What was the name of Thorin Oakenshield's sister, the mother of Fíli and Kíli?

You mean the one from the last page? I was just adapting "Scarborough Fair" because it mentions some of the same herbs.

Ohh. I've a vague idea about Scarborough Fair, but I don't know the tune because I've never heard anyone sing it. *Googles a midi*
(Don't bother linking me to a video. I can't watch them.)

Ok, no books again so...

What signal was left on the bridge to let the Strider know the passage was safe?

A green stone - a beryl, an elfstone. Placed there by Glorfindel after he drove off two Nazgul.

Thanks, Jude!

As Frodo lay recovering from the wound of the Morgul-blade, what did Gandalf think he might become in appearance?

OOh, like a glass filled with clear light for all to see? Or something to that effect.

Yep! Though it was "for eyes to see that can", which I presume means something like a faded Elf.

Who were the first dwarves to arrive at Bilbo's house for the Unexpected Party?

Ooh, that's a toughie. Balin and Dwalin, I think, but separately.
