I would only like to meet Sauron if I was riding next to Orome the Great.

Gandalf and Aragorn, though. . . We would have a lot to discuss.

I've always considered Galadriel the most intriguing character in Middle Earth.

Plus, she's really hot.

I would like to meet Frodo.

And I would like to ask him why he did it. Why he took the Ring to the Fire, what in his heart motivated him.

Because the easy road would have been to put on the Ring, return to the Shire, and let the Powers in Mordor, Gondor, and Rohan duke it out.

Frodo's determination to get the job done is an inspiration to us all (no least fanfic writers shirking their duties) but I would ask him: why not just put on the Ring and (attempt to) be a tyrant?

Sam. About 20 years after the return to the Shire when he has had time to gather the wisdom he so obviously lived by into words of a sort and had grandchildren to aid his reflections.

Meet...That word makes the choice difficult for me.

There are any number of characters whom I would enjoy observing from another table at the banquet, or from the inconspicuous company of the outer circle of friends or hired hands. (Gandalf, Elrond, Galadriel, Aragorn, Boromir, Eomer, Theoden, Gimli, Logolas, etc...)

(After all, wouldn't it be interesting to be placed in Middle Earth as a merchant or a groom, etc, with the prior knowledge of the importance of this particular cast on the landscape of their world, and be able to watch how the characters interacted naturally?)

And there are characters I'd like to be.
As a woman I've always admired Galadriel, but her life would perhaps offer more power than is my ambition.
Eowyn is a very interesting, spirited character, but, I hesitate to say, she is perhaps a little too unstable for comfort.
Arwen gets the romance and relationship drama, and I think in the end I'd choose this character as my "wish to be," despite the grief and sacrifice.
(She does get the love and a beautiful story, and you can't escape life without a little grief.)

And I'll stay with the cast of women of ME to choose which character I'd like to meet, and say I'd like to chat with Rosie about the trials of being left behind, about life with Sam and as a mother, about her experiences and observations as a waitress.
The tales she could tell. Yes, I'd like to meet Rosie, please.
