Something I haven't done in a while: From the depths of my Hard Drive

Something I haven't done in a while: From the depths of my Hard Drive Can't Post

So between myself, Kyriel, and a few others from back in Ye Olde Days (also known as the First Age of tOR.N), we managed to salvage some of the threads we thought particularly worthwhile. I've got some humorous things, a number of old reading room discussions, and a bunch of song parodies all floating around in the depths of my hard drive. So I occasionally pull one of them out and share it again. I've been swamped with RL lately until a couple weeks ago so I haven't been around much to do this, and it seemed like it might be time. =)

So I give you: If LotR had been written by somebody else…
