Subject-line challenge! Can't Post

Below are five subject lines from posts on the Movie: Hobbit board. Your challenge is to use all five of these phrases in a very short story!

What can you come up with?



Is it really Kili?

::blushes::

Dare I say it?

Speak of the devil

Oooh, oooh ... I have a confession!


Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauronís master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded beggar with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

Okay, I'll give it a shot [In reply to] Can't Post

Ori rushed toward Dori, looking excited.
"Dori...Oooh, ooh...I have a confession!"
Well, what is it, Ori?" asked Dori.
Ori blushed. "Dare I say it?"
"Well, go on, tell me what it is." said Dori patiently.
"Listen...listen...listen..." said Ori, grinning.
"I'm listening, Ori! Out with, come on." said Dori.
Fili now came toward Dori and Ori.
"Dori, you'll never guess what we saw!" Fili was smiling, half out of humor, half out of embarrassment.
"Will you tell me what it is already?" said Dori, getting impatient.
They heard a noise nearby in trees.
"Shh, shh. It might be him." said Ori, whispering.
"Who?" said Dori. "Thorin. We can't lethim hear us."
"Why?" asked Dori.
"Oh, it's okay, it's only Kili." said Fili relieved.
"Is it really Kili?" asked Ori.
"Yes." said Fili. Kili joins them. He's snickering.
"Did you see-"
"Yes!" said both Ori and Fili.
"What is it everyone has seen! Tell me already, I'm all attention, for Durin's sake." said Dori.
"I'll tell him, I'll tell him!" said Kili.
"No, I'll do it, you keep laughing." said Ori. He began.
"The three of us had gone to see Thorin to ask him something. When I saw him, I saw the most tackiest thing."
Fili andf Kili started giggling.
"You see," Ori went on. "When we came into the tent, Thorin was..."
"Yes?" said Dori.
"Well, he was wearing...a most tacky outfit, looked at himself in the mirror, smacked his...bum, and said 'I'm irresistable and sexy,' then he started dancing." said Ori.
At this Fili and Kili burst out laughing. Dori looked dumbfounded. "What?" he said. He couldn't believe the noble and majestic Thorin would behave in such a manner.
Thorin suddenly appeared.
"Speak of the devil!" said Fili and Kili.

The Maltese Kili [In reply to] Can't Post

The Scene: the dungeons of the Woodland Realm

It couldn't get any worse. Here I am, sitting in this dark, dank, rotting dungeon cell. How in Durin's name did this happen? I think back to just 24 hours ago:

The Scene: Mirkwood Forest

My brother and I are just hanging out. Literally. We were in some trouble, yeah, but nothing we couldn't have handled, eventually. Then-- Dare I say it? -- She glides in. Of all the spider webs in all the forests of Middle Earth, she has to glide into this one. Next thing I know, these spiders look like black pincushions and she's hauling our Dwarf butts off to jail. I don't know why I do it but my mouth starts to run and I say to my brother:

"Fili...Oooh, oooh...I have a confession!"

"Yeah? What's that?"

"The babe who just captured us-- ::blushes:: there's something about her..."

I know what he's thinking: Is it really Kili? Has my brother totally lost it? But he doesn't know a secret about me: I like the tall ones. I once dated a girl who was at least 4 foot 5 tall. There, I think, I've admitted it to myself.

The Scene: The dungeons of the Woodland Realm

Speak of the devil. She's back, with our grub for tonight. I hope it's elk steak. I summon all my courage, and I try my pick-up line on her:

"Here's Looking Up At You, Kid!"

Don't mess with my favorite female elf.

Bogart [In reply to] Can't Post

The references in the story are from two immortal Bogart films, "The Maltese Falcon" and "Casablanca" ("...of all the gin joints in all the towns...").

Here's looking at you, kid! Wink
