**20FD game: Six Subject Line Challenge!

Here's a game weaver often shared during our parties. It's the "Six Subject Line Challenge!"

The way the game is played is that 6 recent subject lines are randomly chosen from current Discussion Board pages and you incorporate as many of those lines as you can into some sort of fanfic. Whether it's a short story, a drabble, a poem, a song... Whatever you're inspired to do! Have Fun! :D

It's worth three minutes of your time from WonderBroad

I have a drabble!

Entitled 'War Games' - a conversation between friends.

‘It’s worth three minutes of your time,’ pleaded Gimli.
‘What is?’ asked Legolas, absently.
‘Elf and Dwarf Lego!’
‘I’m not sure the two ideas go together,’ he sighed. ‘Now if you were building a Balrog…’
‘What is it with you people and Balrogs?’
The doorbell chimed; it was Thranduil.
‘Here’s the army you ordered. All sales are final.’ He announced disdainfully. They started building battle formations; some figures needed reconstructing.
‘No-one tickles a dwarf!’ snapped Gimli. Legolas rolled his eyes.
‘Well they only come one-at-a-time; you clip the pieces together.’
‘’I’ve changed my mind,’ grumbled Gimli, ‘I’d rather play Minecraft.’

Here's my shot at it :)

Bless weaver for creating such a challenging (and maddening) game! A love the puzzle it becomes :D

Gimli strode up to the Guard standing at the gate of Helm's Deep with a force of over 100 dwarves closing in behind. He shifted his axe from his left shoulder to his right hand and let it drop purposefully beside him.

"Well, here's the army you ordered. All sales are final when you invite the children of Durin to work on such caves as you have behind these walls."

Merry's head popped out from behind the Guard nervously facing the hoard.

"Gimli! I'm so tickled to see you! All of you!" he quipped.

Serious as ever… especially when he's leading an army on a mission… the dwarf scowled.

"No one tickles a dwarf, Master Meriadoc. It would take a Balrog to keep us from this task."

"What is it with you people and Balrogs?" Merry said incredulously. "You're always talking about fighting Balrogs!"

"Well, they only come one-at-a-time if you'd like to know." Gimli shook his head and continued to lecture the halfling. "They rule over a kingdom of their own choosing. Unfortunately for them, they tend to be drawn to those of the dwarves. So once the dwarves transform these magnificent glittering caves of Rohan, they'll be invincible!"

Merry's eyebrows knitted. "I'm not sure the two ideas go together."

"We don't have time to banty words here on the threshold of what is clearly in need of the skills of the dwarves. Step aside, my dear hobbit, or pick up a chisel and hammer and join us."

Merry chuckled. "For me it's been worth three minutes of your time to jest with you, my dear Gimli. How I've missed you! Carry on, welcome, and many thanks to you and yours."

Relieved, the Guard moved to the side of the gate.
