Steam From The Hat Can't Post

Er, Scenes From The Hat.

Greetings, my fine feathered TORnadoes, and welcome to another edition of SFTH. In honor of my new found appreciation of steampunk I thought we could have some fun with LOTR. Now, before you get all in an uproar, and say that the good Professor exactly loathed this sort of tom foolery with the machines and the gadgets, just pause to remember we've also speculated what LOTR would be like had it been written by one Mr. George Lucas. TongueAngelic

So, what would a Steampunk LOTR be like? Would Lobelia's umbrella now possess certain brass accoutrements designed to inflict severe distress upon Sharkey's men? Perhaps poison-misting attachments? Would the "plot hole" now be Why didn't Gandalf just take a steam powered ornithopter to Mt. Doom and drop in the Ring? And just what about that Ring?



And suddenly the Tornadoes saw afar off a greenlight, as it were a cloud with a living heart of flame;
and they knew that this was no vision only, but that PJ had made a new thing: The Hobbit, the Film that Is.
