Drabble: When you've got to go...
It's a long time since I've posted any fic here. I have been writing but the story with which I'm busy at the moment (my current icon and journal header banner are from it) is coming out with chapter lengths around 15,000 words; much too long for LiveJournal's character limit. I'm posting it only at the Pit of Voles and Faerie, for the time being, although when it's finished I might post it at Dreamwidth and put links up here. However a review at Faerie inspired me to write a drabble. Two Mary-Sue Earth girls, with the Fellowship as the Tenth and Eleventh Walkers, encounter some practical necessities that Tolkien and Peter Jackson skipped over in their portrayals of Middle Earth.

100 words, rating PG.

When you've got to go…

Aragorn embraced Halbarad, greeted the Rangers, and then introduced them to Legolas, Gimli, and the two Earth girls Mary and Sue.

“Well met,” said Halbarad, “but we must attend to urgent business. We have been in the saddle, without pause, for many hours. Excuse us.” With that the Rangers dismounted, rushed into the bushes, and unfastened their breeches.

“I don’t remember this part,” Mary remarked, as they heard the sound of urine splashing on vegetation. “It wasn’t in the books or the movie.”

“It’s there,” Sue contradicted her. “Return of the King, Chapter Two. The Pissing of the Grey Company.”

Could you clarify what you mean by the "Pit of Voles and Faerie"? Googling that didn't turn up a site to look for your work.

The Pit of Voles is fanfiction.net and Faerie ( http://efiction.esteliel.de/index.php ) is the new Tolkien archive that was started up as a reaction to Keith Mander's takeover of the Lord of the Rings Fanfiction Archive.

Thanks, I'll look it up on FF.net, then. I hope your username is the same as here. :p

Actually, no. The character limit is much longer and so I'm Speaker-to-Customers.

Alright, I'll look it up. :) Thanks!

*giggles*
Was it my review, by chance? :) If so, I'm glad it served as inspiration. :)

And if you don't mind a little bit of SSP, I'd like to mention my story "Prom-queen in ME" (can be found on Faerie), in which I put my poor Mary Sue in all sorts of troubles, including the lack of toilet paper... :)

Thank you! Yes, it was your review, and I say so in the summary on Faerie.

Awww... :)
And yes, I noticed it later (the summary on Faerie, I mean). As I said, I'm glad it inspired you. :)
