Crossover Drabble: Kings of the Wild Frontier
Here is a LotR drabble inspired by a spelling mistake, or typo, that the Wombat encountered in a Tolkien discussion. Surprise crossover.

Summary: Merry and Pippin meet one of Treebeard’s allies. Rating G, 100 words.


Kings of the Wild Frontier

Merry and Pippin stared at the two strange figures who accompanied Treebeard. One was an Ent, tall and slender, with hair of greyish-green and smooth and shining pale skin; the other was a Man, naked to the waist displaying skin of a coppery tint, and whose hair was shaven into a top-knot with a feather stuck through it. Stripes of war-paint adorned his face.

“Hoom, little ones,” said Treebeard, indicating the Ent, “this is Bregalad, known as Quickbeam, who will look after you during the Entmoot.”

“And your other companion?” asked Merry.

“Magua,” Treebeard said, “the leader of the Hurons.”

Touche :-)
I should make more spelling mistakes.

I love "Last of The Mohicans". Thank you.

It was you, I take it?

Thank you!

Come to think of it, your Thranduil icon looks a little like Daniel Day Lewis as Hawkeye.

Yes it was me. (Here is the link to the glorious "invention")

You're welcome.

Ahhmmm, Maybe I need to see the movie again. I can't see the resemblance :-)

It's a superficial resemblance; mainly the wild flowing hair (although fair instead of dark), the shirt that could be buckskin, and something about the expression that resembles DDL in the pose from the movie posters.

I said long ago - sometimes you just have to adore typos! *grins*
