* [[FanFic/MyImmortal Lord Voldemort.]] This would suggest that Middle-Earth is, in fact, the limbo where Voldemort was sent after his defeat, and the fetus-like form his fragmented soul took eventually evolved into a small man once Voldemort started repenting his crimes.

Seriously... Tolkien travels back in time {{Terminator}}-style, because that's possible where and when he is from, to see the birth of his obsession, only to find that it hasn't been invented yet. So he writes Literature/TheHobbit to keep himself busy. When he realises how easy it is to exploit the market, he uses all those old clichéd concepts thrown out by his contemporaries; thus was born ''the Lord of the Rings.'' He even based the concept on an RP he had played himself.

At the very least this theory might explain why the Ring didn't make a trick like one it did woth Isildur and Gollum - that is, slip and hide.

to:

Double points once we realize that this part of the narratve was most likely compiled from the notes of Frodo himself. At the very least this theory might explain why the Ring didn't make a trick like one it did woth Isildur and Gollum - that is, slip and hide.

to:

* I'm generally quite skeptical about WMG, but this one is eerily plausible. Let's turn to the description of Frodo's deciding at the Council of Elrond:

An overwhelming longing to rest and remain at peace by Bilbo's side in Rivendell filled all his heart. At last with an effort he spoke, and wondered to hear his own words, '''as if some other will was using his small voice.'''
'I will take the Ring,' he said, 'though I do not know the way.'

At the very least this theory might explain why the Ring didn't make a trick like one it did woth Isildur and Gollum - that is, slip and hide.

**^ This. Frodo cursed him under the Ring's influence, and the curse followed through.

* It's actually that the makers weren't planning on stealth. The sword shines with a blessed light that hurts orc eyes: facing an eleven host with such weapons would be like trying to fight with blazing spotlights pointed at your face.

[[WMG: The Lord of the Rings films are a prequel to ''[[Film/TheForceAwakens Star Wars: The Force Awakens]]'' and Snoke is Gollum[=/=]Sauron. ]]
In this universe the ring was never destroyed. Sauron used Gollums body instead of his own when reunited with the ring. He rose up and developed space technology. He entered space and the Dark Side of the Force is actually flowing from Sauron[=/=]Snoke, creating the Sith. ''"It's true, yes precious, it is!"''

* But during the journey through the [[TheSilmarillion Helcaraxë]] their ears got so frostbitten that [[{{Squick}} the points snapped]] [[BodyHorror right off]]. [[LamarckWasRight Lamarck's theory of inheritance of acquired characteristics]] took care of the rest.

(A few hundred years later, he finally realised that he needed to return the Silmaril in time for the [[TheSilmarillion Dagor Dagorath]], so he popped back to Middle-Earth in his Seventh incarnation, this time posing as his own, slightly clownish 'cousin', who was apparently a dab hand at bird calls...)
