Drabble: In The Dark

Happy birthday to airawyn and crossreactivity


The War of the RingsDrabbles began when beer_good_foamy started it all with Everybody Knows Men Never Ask Directions. My response was The Only Way To Travel. BGF struck back with The Evils of Capitalism, to which I replied with There’s Something About Frodo. BGF’s reply was Be Adequite. Now it’s my turn again. 100 words, PG.

In The Dark


Aragorn led the way into the Paths of the Dead. Legolas and Gimli followed at his heels. Behind them came Halbarad and the Rangers of the North. The air in the dark tunnels was chill and the grim presence of the Dead cast a pall of horror over the companions.

“Fear not,” Legolas urged them, “for the Oath that the Dead swore was to fight against Sauron. They must fulfil their Oath to be free.”

“Why would they break such an Oath?” Gimli wondered.

The leader of the Dead shambled up. “Hey, man,” said Jerry Garcia, “it clashed with Woodstock.”

Groovy man, I can dig it.

I'm going to try to get a response up by tomorrow... if not then, then in a week when I'm back online. But there's no way I'm going to let the Grateful Dead close the show. :-)

...and I got one up now!
speakr2customrs From: speakr2customrs Date: July 2nd, 2008 06:09 pm (UTC) (Link)
...but when it does close 'Hey, Mr Clean, You're Dirty Too Now' has to close it, and so I've arranged the series in Memories to keep that one at the end.

The show's a long way from being closed yet...

Thank you! :)

It has been a long and occasionally painful process but I have finally learned to put down my beverage, especially the hot ones, before reading your drabbles.

Evolution in action. It's impossible to breed with a lap-full of hot beverage.
