I've only recently discovered this site, and I'm very much enjoying the brief vignettes that some people write. Can I assume that the person speaking in "The Question" is Saruman? It took me awhile to figure out at first who it might be, since the reference to Elves suggests that this person is not an Elf (ruling out people like Elrond or Galadriel) -- and it's clear from the books that Gandalf has no intention of claiming the Ring for himself, tempted though he may be. However, it only hit me yesterday that the person in question must be Saruman -- for only he or Gandalf, as Sauron's fellow Maiar, would be truly justified in considering themselves his equal.
