**** Pre-game Six Subject Line Challenge (SSLC) ****

Just to get you warmed up for World Hobbit Day, here's a traditional TORn game thread that Weaver posts every so often.

Below are six subject lines from posts currently on the board -- what can you do with them?

The Six Subject Lines:

- You can see the wheels turning behind his eyes
- Give me Radagast or give me Death!
- I didn't say anything about making it deeper
- You sound like you know something but
- sure, if I can push the "norse" theme into the surreal
- It's accurate enough for me

The Challenge:

Use one, some or all of the subject lines to make poetry, a drabble, a bit of doggerel, a very short story, a riddle, a parody, whatever -- just let your creative side out and have fun!

This is an awesome idea

I shall have a think.

Though, I was trying to figure out who on earth had typed I didn't say anything about making it deeper and in what context. Then I realised it was me ...

Gandalf on the pinnacle of Orthanc

Gandalf on the pinnacle of Orthanc

Gandalf: I want my phone call.
Saruman: Oh really. And who would you call?
Gandalf: Well, Radagast comes to mind. He could send a giant eagle to rescue me from your evil clutches.
Saruman: See, this is why I'm more successful than you. You're far too honest.
Gandalf: If you don't let me, I'll jump. Do you really want my blood on your white hands?
Saruman: You're bluffing.
Gandalf: GIVE ME RADAGAST OR GIVE ME DEATH!
(Gandalf jumps and dies.)

You can never have enough subjects! :D

I love these things!

We've also got weaver lined (pardon the pun) up for a subject game, and I think it's awesome! These are so much fun, I think getting our creative juices flowing is always a very good thing!

This is gonna be one hoppin' party!!! :D




I really need these new films to take me back to, and not re-introduce me to, that magical world.

oh, why not...

Though not required of participants, I'll try to use as little additional text as possible.

Overheard on Set

In honour of finding King Richard III's remains, Sir Peter asked Sir Ian to work a little Shakespeare into his performance...

Sir Ian: ...sure, if I can push the "norse" theme into the surreal... (ahem) "Give me Radagast or give me Death!"
Sir Peter: You sound like you know something, but I didn't say anything about making it deeper.
Sir Ian: (brows furrowed) ...
Sir Peter: (You can see the wheels turning behind his eyes) ah, It's accurate enough for me, check the gate!

A Hobbit Named Norse walks into Gandalf's Car Dealership...

Hobbit -- "I'm looking for a nice car for myself, my wife, our five hobbit children and our dog..."

Gandalf -- "Of course you are. But are you sure you wouldn't want something a little more...adventurous?"

Hobbit -- "You sound like you know something, but really, no, I just need something to get me to Bywater and back."

Gandalf -- "Certainly! We have some nice cozy little hobbit station wagons over here...they're rather boring, of course, but if that's what you want..."

Hobbit -- "Who said anything about boring? Just because we Norse hobbits have never had any adventures or done anything unexpected does not mean that we only want to see cars that are boring!"

Gandalf -- "Well then, in that case let me show you some of our wizard-mobiles. That brown one over there is a new model called the Radagast. It's quite surreal, and it's just been marked down!"

Hobbit -- "Well, I say. That is a nice car! Will it hold all the Norses? All of them...and me?"

Gandalf -- "Sure!" (To himself: now, if I can push the "Norse "them-me" into the surreal...)

Hobbit (sitting behind the driver's seat -- you can see the wheels turning behind his eyes): "Give me Radagast or give me Death!"

Gandalf -- "Would you like to take it for a spin?"

Hobbit (suddenly suspicious): "Hmm..you seem awfully eager to sell me this car...if I take it for a test drive, you will promise that I will come back?"

Gandalf -- "No....but if you do, you will not be the same."

Hobbit -- "Well...that doesn't sound so great, but there does seem to be enough room in here for all of us and it seems very pet friendly. What the heck! Let's talk about the price...I know you said something about a price cut already, but can you do any better?"

Gandalf -- "I didn't say anything about making it deeper...but how does one bag of jewels sound?"

Hobbit -- "It's accurate enough for me. I'll take it!"

Making of The Hobbit Movie: Behind the Scenes with the Dwarves

The Barrel Scene:

The actors playing the dwarves, as well as Mr. Freeman, Peter Jackson's assistant on set, and Mr. Jackson himself are discussing the scene in between several takes.

Fili, resting his elbows on his barrel (from the inside) as it bobs and lists slightly, next to several other full barrels, loosely roped together:
"If 'somebody' doesn't make up his mind to figure this out and shoot for the last time, I'm cutting this blasted barrel loose and using Bifur's harpoon-axe-thing to paddle right out of here."

Balin, dangling his legs over the edge of the platform, and watching Jackson sitting with head in hands while perched on an empty barrel behind the set:
"Don't worry, he'll make up his mind any minute. You can see the wheels turning behind his eyes."

Kili, balancing on the side of his barrel and rolling it with his feet all over the platform:
"So that's how he got that idea for Saruman in the E.E."

The assistant is peering nervously over the edge at the choppy waves and at the barrels bouncing around and tilting at crazy angles. He muttered something to Jackson, who replied loudly:
"I didn't say anything about making it deeper."

Bombur sidled over to the assistant, (who quickly moved several inches back from the edge):
"You sound like you know something but . . ."

The assistant, in a loud stage whisper:
"Hush!" Then "out loud": "You can discuss that with your union rep."

Bilbo, wistfully; trying desperately to remain in character:
"Oh where is Gandalf when we need him most."

Thorin:
"The heck with that tattered, blue-hatted meddler. Give me Radagast or give me Death!"

Dori, from deep inside his barrel, stuck in the water between Ori's and Nori's:
"So you think that overgrown Brownie, and a bunch of bunnies hopping around scattering magical herbs and singing the theme from "Never Cry Wolf" would be more help?"

Bilbo, plaintively: "And what about the book?"

Thorin:
"I don't see the problem. It's accurate enough for me!"

Enter Howard Shore who consults with Jackson and the ever more nervous assistant.

Jackson
: What do the two of you think about bringing a few lost Rohirrim into the scene; you know, to give it a more multicultural feel. And continuity, you know . . ."

Shore: "Sure, if I can push the "norse" theme into the surreal!"

Scene fades to black--a trifle too soon--as several soft splooshes followed by frantic splashing and flailing noises are heard in the background, followed by shouts of "Where's my union rep" and "that's not a towel that's Bifur's beard."

Curtain.


- You can see the wheels turning behind his eyes
- Give me Radagast or give me Death!
- I didn't say anything about making it deeper
- You sound like you know something but
- sure, if I can push the "norse" theme into the surreal
- It's accurate enough for me
