*Gasp* The sheer magnificence - *bows and bows again* to Elarie and Nieriel... [In reply to] Can't Post

Yesterday had been TRYINGFrown. A day moving furniture and STUFFFrown. Of course, I consoled myselfCool with images of:



(After all, no TRUE Fang-gir-iell would WHINE when the her *beloved* fiesty hairballs had slapped up a wall overnight....)

And then it was done. I settled back in my comfy lounge chair and contemplated my au naturel *dwarf* legs in satisfaction, tucked into the *creative* Hobbit feet slippers (still warm from the oven, and so convenient if I need a quick snack!Cool)




That gentle click of a disk, and:



HeartHeartHeartHeartHeartHeartHeart

Well, it took quite a while to get through AUJ...TongueTongueTongueTongueTongue

So today, bleery-eyed, desperately swilling triple caffeine (gotta be ready to re-view DOS of course, after all, it IS Valentine's Day weekend...TongueHeart) I had little expectation of anything save a plumbing problem and/or Thorin Oakenshield delivering the supreme pizza (with extra mushrooms) of much garnering my interest. Besides, I had to bake some more Hobbit feet slippers and check on that hair growth - wouldn't want to be confused with an elf, hur, hur (by summer I should be all set!Cool)

OMG. OMGHeartHeartHeart. I salute the both Elarie and Nieriel - I laughed. I clapped. I scared the cat. I actually woke up. OMG.

Sometimes it has been said that sequels sufferShocked, than a *finale* can be *anticlimatic* but I have no words for the sheer ARTISTRY and IMAGINATION. It's beyond "mere mithril" in words, it's platinum-plated mithril with little 18K charms set with grade E three carat flawless diamonds.

I cannot thank you both enoughSmile. I won't even feel *guilty* about the complete lack of subltety in my hints LOL. A classic THREAD, a classic WORK, an amazing COLLABORATION that just shows elves and dwarves CAN be as ONE (along with assorted livestock, creatures from the netherworld, *hair freaks*, a hobbit, wizards, and that frazzled barefoot guy who has started adding a 'wee something from a flask to his frequent cups of tea).

Thank you both for the second best Valentine's Day present I ever gotWink (the first would be Thorin Oakenshield, but there's no helping some folks...Crazy).




PS. BTW, in spite of it all, Kili DID send Tauriel a Valentine's Day present:

You are most welcome [In reply to] Can't Post

Smile Always nice to catch up with Thorin, Thranduil and the rest of the gang. One never knows what they will be getting up to next.

And it's 14 deg F here and going down, so really, what else is there to do except wrap up in fuzzy blankets, grab a cat or two, and escape to Middle-Earth?

After all, the important thing is to keep warm...

I know what you mean, I'm starting to see it all in my head the same way I remember the movies. But I was thinking the other day that for anyone who hasn't watched the movies, all the appendices, read the books, followed the TORN posts and read the Oakentoon Thorin/Minty toons, it probably sounds like complete lunacy.

Oh well, here's to a little lunacy SmileSmileSmile

Happily re-reading last nightLaugh (I don't know why but Thorin referring to the Golden Wood as "stupid leaves and flowers cracks me up LOLLaugh - never mind the exploding pinata and the picture of Galadriel and Gandalf side by side, dabbling their toes in the water and shooting off fireworks - and then Lindir being the hero of the hour and that "little game" Thorin and Bilbo play ROFLMAO *wipes eyes*Laugh) - ANYWAY it's all so exquisitely perfect!HeartHeartHeart

And BTW, your talent is FORMIDABLEShockedShockedShocked. Like Thorin himself...Cool



and I promise (with fingers crossed behind my backEvil) that I won't whine about Thorin's possible adventures in the Golden HallTongueTongue...which seems already overwhelming with POSSIBILITIES. Will Thorin have to make a *desperate, nail-biting stand*, his back against the wall, against *greedy* Rohaners who COVET his hair for their helmets OMG (say it isn't so!Shocked). Will Thorin *bond* with Theoden because he can perfectly empathsize with possessing badassery, charisma, a big sword, insanityCool, and the ability to give a *killer* speech? Will the two stand as one, because both are real tired of folks telling them what to do (and who is the king, anyway??!!)

Will Thorin's heart be shattered, when Minty gets an *eyeful* of ShadowfaxFrown, or will Minty's heart remain with the evening? Will Eowyn gaze into the cornflower blue eyes of Fili, and forever derail canon?Shocked

Inquiring minds want to know!

Galion's Jottings - Home at last [In reply to] Can't Post

Oh Adidas, sweet Adidas
Did you run to Edoras?
Your magic brush so soft and fat
It made my heart go pitter pat
If I could feel it just once more
I'd sweep the halls of Erebor**


Are you mortal? Are you Elf?
I need to find out for myself
Queenship yours, for you to keep
I dream about you in my sleep
Oh Adidas with ladder fair
Where to find you? Where, oh where!



And this is the work of HRF in love. Bloomin' work of art, innit? Brings a lump to yer throat. As HRF said himself, not a lot rhymes wiv Adidas, not wot you can recite out loud in public at any rate.

Anyway, the upshot is, HRF is all for hunting Adidas down and bringing her home to be his Queen. I don't fink it matters if she wants that or not, he's got his heart set on it, and as he says "Why wouldn't she want to be my Queen?" He's got a point really, ain't he? So blow me down if we ain't all off to Edoras because HRF has got it into his head that she might be from there cos he vaguely remembers some Horse Lord at the barbecue, because he knows for a fact she ain't from Lothlórien or Rivendell (cos he's already asked Lord Elrond and the Lady Galadriel all about her) and she ain't no dwarf neither cos she ain't got a beard.

Between you and me, right, I'm not entirely sure that HRF isn't still sufferin' the after effects of dem Balrog Bits because prior to Adidas, right, he wouldn't look twice at a mortal woman and there's been some bootiful mortal women wot have crawled out of the woodwork over the years (well, got lost after trying to send HRF a 'love letter' and found by the Guards covered in blackberry juice on the front doorstep cryin' about 'ow many acrylic nails they've broke is a more accurate, 'praps.) Real stunners some of 'em, but no it was Elf or nuffink for HRF, and lets face it, lately it's been nuffink, apart from that little fling wot he had wiv the Lady G, after Filauria flounced off to bloomin' Gondor, and that was a good while ago. So yeah, I'm a bit flummoxed to tell yer da troof about wot this Adidas has got that's got HRF in such a tizz. He's proper bewitched. As I said to Elros, who turned up 'ere unexpected last night beggin' HRF reconsider his betrothal to Kevin citing 'cruel and unusual treatment' as the cause - sumfink to do wiv Kevin not liking all the salads wot Elros made him or sumfink. Anyhow, HRF said he'd fink about it. It ain't natural. Lord Elrond tried to talk sense into HRF sayin' that marriage to a mortal ain't all it's cracked up to be, but no, HRF weren't havin' a word of it. So yeah, we're off to bloomin' Horse Boy Country. Fan-bloomin'-tastic.

I ain't looking forward to going at all cos I'm 'lergic to 'orses, and HRF knows this and of course he ain't bovvered, is he? All he cares about is writin' more poems about Adidas and her bloomin' brush. He's even 'ad a bit of a poke round in his jewellery collection and has picked out a nice ring for 'er which is more than he ever did for Filauria, which, if you asks me, wos one of the reasons she cleared off wiv Nigel. The bloomin' rows HRF and Filauria would have. You could hear the screams all over the Realm and that wos just 'im! Rows over the Big Mirror in the mornin', rows over the Hair Straightenin' Imp, rows over who got to wear the nicest jewellery, rows over who got to sit on the throne longest. He'd be yellin' "I am the KING, you will obey MY wishes, you insolent creature!" And she'd be yellin' "I don't give a fiddler's flip for your wishes, I'm the QUEEN! So you can shut yer cake 'ole!" She was a bit common wos Filauria, very bootiful but she could curse like a sailor. She is from Bree, so wot can you expect? Trouble is, in many ways, they was too much alike, troof be told. Don't ask me how they ever managed stopped fightin' long enough to 'ave Legolas. Then one morning we discovered she'd upped and gone takin' wiv her a white gold ring wiv a diamond in it the size of a pigeon's egg. HRF, as you can imagine was devastated. Heartbroken he wos. He loved that ring.

So since we've got back home from Mirrormere, I've been 'up to pussy's pink bow' (as Mr Gandalf sez) wiv packing everyfink HRF wants to take. Twenty seven outfits he's decided on so far, all wiv matchin' boots. I keeps tellin 'im that he don't need 'em all, and what a pain it's going to be for ME to keep 'em all nice for 'im when he's messin' about wiv all dem Horse Lords, more Foreign Food and goodness knows wot else, and he just sez "Beauty IS pain, Galion" and starts on anuvver poem. Sometimes my job, it'd break yer heart and no mistake.

**Not meant literally you understand my love, but I could not find another word to rhyme, and if you'd ever been to Erebor you would understand and if you cared for me you wouldn't want me to get my hands dirty, would you? I mean I am simply not designed for manual labour of any kind; not one bead of sweat has broken on my brow in over 6000 years.

I assume that our Forest Lord will be bringing along at least ONE outfit such as this, perhaps in diamond-dew'd cream beige - although it WOULD behoove (no pun intended) Galion to warn his King that perhaps, visiting a culture with many, many horses is a culture where the ground can have many *squishy* pitfalls for the unwary, and that in this instance Thranduil might wish to lower his standards and ask Bard to borrow some Laketown gearEvil.

Smile Thanks Nieriel! A very blah day just got 100% better thanks to Galion's hilarious observation's on Life With The Boss. And what a boss, LOL! Perhaps with a little sugar-loaded, high calorie encouragement Kevin can help track down the Princess Adidas; after all, stalking prey is what monsters DO, right? I'll bet Elros could talk him into it, if Elros was properly motivated by HRF. Evil

Legolas Breaks Free [In reply to] Can't Post

Woke up tied to the ship's rail with Elven rope. I was also gagged. This can only be the work of my father. It appears someone has also removed the Bra of Wonder. I managed to spit out my gag and have tried chewing my way through the rope with my beautiful pearly teeth, but it is obviously bewitched by some magic of my father's making for not warning him about the Durins and all that Mithril. I assume I am banished. Dark days. Dark days indeed.

Was finally untied by Lindir, perhaps he had pity in him, and put to work in the stall of 'Minty' the pony. Is there no end to my degradation? I managed to get one bite of an apple before the savage beast snatched it away from me. I fear the pony is far more corrupted than I had at first imagined.

Quite alone, I flung myself on deck in a fit of tears. The others were conducting one of their hideous parties after the daily revealing of the mutant Kili's tattoo. Must have cried myself to sleep as I was awoken in the dead of night by the call of a pallid moon. I could feel the song of the land close by, it's lush greenness whispered to me. Alas, and with all hope of reconciliation with my kin now lost I flung myself over the side into the cool, deep waters caring for naught - not even my hair.

Using all of my remaining strength I swam towards land and crawled onto the rocky foreshore, weak and spent. I again must have collapsed into a sleep beyond sleeping for I was again awoken by the sound of snuffling and if my ears do not deceive me, weeping. My Elvish eyes perceived the creature Kevin lurking in the undergrowth. He is absolutely enormous, has many tentacles and appears to be wearing the Bra of Wonder on a jaunty angle as an eye patch; this comes as some relief for I feared my father had taken it as some terrible trinket. Doubtless the creature has been following the boat waiting to pick us all off in our sleep one by one! Perhaps if I remain very still Kevin may not approach. @*@**! He approaches!

Kevin it seems is not the creature of dread and nameless fear I had first imagined, and once I had stopped screaming he appeared to be very cultivated but deeply upset. He had decided to follow the boat as it was a source of mild joy to him to hear the laughter from the Par-tei Boat as all else to him was lost. I promised to hear his tale of woe if he did not eat me, a proposal he accepted with good grace. Kevin it appears was betrothed, at my father's behest, to a member of our Royal household called Elros - I now realise he was the interloper who took my place in the Kissing Booth, utinu en lokirim! Kevin it appears was happy with this betrothal arrangement because he has spent many long years on his own (he admits that the 'alone' thing was probably his fault) and his experiences with On Crow Dating had been, by and large, a disaster, despite what I'd call a very well written dating profile which Kevin was very keen to show me.

Name: Kevin
Species/Race: Dark and Nameless Thing
Body shape: Lots to love
Heads: One
Eyes: One Good One
Arms/Tentacles: 12
Legs: Depends
Personality: I'm a bubbly intellectual romantic
Hobbies: Counting my tentacles and sitting in puddles. I also have a very impressive collection of heart shaped pebbles.
Favorite Food: Not fussy
Ideal Date: Sitting in a puddle and with my Love holding my tentacle and counting my pebbles.

After I complimenting Kevin warmly on his profile, he continued his tale. Sadly it appears that Elros is as faithless as my father with those he purports to love and has returned home to Mirkers alone for reasons Kevin is understandably at a loss to comprehend (I believe he said it was something to do with salad that caused the rift) and until now Kevin was in 'the depths of the deepest melancholia and excessive despair', as Elros has not written to him or bought him anything 'nice' as he'd promised to. Now, however Kevin feels that all hope is now not lost as he has found me and calls our meeting 'serendipitous in the extreme'. He says I remind him greatly of Elros, and that an Elf was the last thing he expected to fall off a dwarf boat, and wasn't luck a wonderful thing! He has even offered, much to my delight, to braid my hair in Elvish fashion so that my disguise as a dwarf can upset me no more. He asked me if I knew anything about the 'Sindarin Smackaroo' but I had to admit that my study of marsupials was sorely incomplete, to which Kevin responded with promises to assist my study, as well as offering to show me his pebbles once we were, as he put it, 'back at my place.'

Kevin is such a sporting type and feigned to indulge in some wrestling with me after we sat for a while in a damp cave looking at his travelling pebble collection, quite distinct, Kevin said from his stationary pebble collection. I explained to Kevin that my mind was quite adrift after being tied to a rail for days beyond counting (well possibly a couple) and very probably half drowned, and that if he could forgive me I would be happy to learn about the 'Sindarin Smackaroo' after I had rested further. This Kevin took in good part as he packed away his pebbles and urged me to rest. I am forming a plan which involves my returning to Mirkers to speak with my father about Elros and his shabby treatment of Kevin. I shall propose my plan to Kevin in the morning. For all I know Kevin may wish to come with me (if he is able) as we are now such firm friends that he even gave me one of his heart shaped pebbles as a gift after he braided my hair. I can see my father's delight in my diplomacy skills already.
