Dear Verangel....I'm so glad that you enjoyed the post so much. I think, too, that Gandalf would had to have been moved by Arwen's plea.

As to Sam...well, I think that it wasn't so much a 'real' place on the boat that Arwen gave up to Frodo. Rather, she put forward the idea that mortals who were worthy might be granted passage (all three hobbits were granted passage under the 'umbrella' of their being Ringbearers, but I think we might dissect that generalization a lot more in terms of looking at why the other two hobbits were granted passage). (i'm interested enough now that i want to investigate the 'tickets' granted to Master Baggins, Senior, and Master Gamgee!)

At the end of the day, what matters, I suppose, is that they *were* granted that passage.

Thank you so much for your lovely comments!
