LotR Crossover Drabble: Stand And Deliver - Words in the Heroes' Tongue
I have a variable-sword. I urge calm.
LotR Crossover Drabble: Stand And Deliver
Following yesterday’s LotR ‘spelling mistake’ drabble I’ve come up with a sequel. Same crossover as for Kings of the Wild Frontier.

Summary: Sometimes allies come with unwelcome baggage... Rating PG, 100 words.

Stand And Deliver

The Ents and Hurons rampaged through the circle of Isengard, slaying Orcs and Dunlendings, and destroying Saruman’s forges and workshops. It seemed nothing could stop them.

Then, from the balcony of Orthanc, came a loud report and a flash. An instant later a hole appeared between the eyes of a tall Ent named Beechbone and he toppled to the ground and lay still. A second bang and flash followed and the Huron leader Magua dropped dead.

“Oh dear,” said Merry, “that’s the down side of allying with the Hurons. To the defence of Saruman have come Hawkeye, Uncas, and Chingachgook.”

Would a bullet kill an Ent, I wonder - I always thought of their nervous systems (for want of a better word) as being less centralised. Not that it matters, of course, it's your story.

Hawkeye performed a large number of impossible feats in the Leatherstocking novels - see Mark Twain's scathing criticism - and therefore must be regarded as having protagonist privilege of at least Batman level.

Oops, Hey, Author, wait, you've got it all wrong:

Saruman is one of the bad guys.
Hawkeye, Uncas, and Chingachgook are of the good guys.

You ruined everything....

LOL, that was fun.
One thing I remember from childhood, from when I first read the book was practicing on how to say Chingachgook's name. His and Massachusetts....

That was a true conquer, to get it all right out loud *g*

Thanks. That looks like it can change the course of history.
Do keep them coming :-)

A world of Awesome, though I'm saddened to see Hawkeye and Uncas and Chingachcook fighting for Saruman. I would think that at some point they would have enough of Saruman's pomposity and honey-sweet voice...
