    I - cannot - believe - that - I - never - found - this - before.

    *is speechless*

    What a WONDERFUL piece! Characterizations are dead on, and everything is true to both universes. I'm absolutely enthralled - and I do hope to see more here. Astonishing!

    Guess I'm a bit late for the movie discussion but I'll say something about Arwen anyway: I don't particularly care for her. I've heard that Jackson thought there were too few girls in the plot so he through in Arwen where she didn't belong. I'm a girl and I'd be perfectly satisfied if there were no girls at all. They weren't there when Tolkien wrote his story, so why would they be needed now?
    Anyway, ignore me, I'm just trying to up this story a little bit. But does anyone know when/if this story will continue?

    Hey,if any of the old authors are even checking this, I would love to help continue this story (only if no one else is going to, and only after I take the ACT).

    Yakin,

    If you want to go ahead and do the first encounter with Treebeard go right ahead. As I have no idea as what to do with that scene.

    Stormie, does that mean that you are continuing this story? Are there any of the old writers still in on it? Hope to get more!
    Up!

    I will start on it. I need to review a little into the fic first. I will have it up at least in 2 weeks, tops. I'm not guarenteeing it will be perfect, though. I can e-mail it to you, stormie, once I finish it to make sure that it is good.

    Here's the next post. Hope you like it! :)
    ____________________________________________

    "Almost felt you liked my forest! That is uncommonly kind of you!" A strange voice behind them said. "Hoom! Who are you? I feel as if I dislike you, but let's not be too hasty! Turn around so I can see you."
    Padmé, Merry, and Pippin suddenly found themselves moving upward as they were picked up from behind and turned around. They found themselves looking into an exquisite face. It was Manlike, nearly troll-like. Its eyes were greyish-green. It stood nearly 14 feet tall and had a large head with an almost nonexistent neck. It had large feet and seven toes on each foot. Its beard was long and grey. It had an amazingly treelike body with a thick hide and arms that were smooth and brown.
    "Hrum! Very odd indeed! If I had seen you before I had heard your voices I would have squashed you, thinking you were orcs, and would have only realized my mistake until later. But who and what are you? I see a young woman here, but what of you other two?" the stranger said.
    "We're Hobbits!" said Merry. "I'm Meriadoc Brandybuck, but you can call me Merry."
    "And I'm Peregrin Took, but I'm usually called Pippin or just Pip."
    "I am Padmé Naberry. Please, who are you, and what?" said Padmé.
    "Well now, I am an Ent, a tree-herder. My name is Fangorn, or Treebeard will do," said Treebeard.

    Nice post Yakyin.

    I won't be able to post this week, but once Thanksgiving break hits (next Wednesday) I'll try and start working on this again, but I have a very large project in World History and that's going to take up a very large majority of my time.

    Sorry about no post, but some very very bad ice storms hit my area last week, and screwed everything up. And exams are next week, but after that I'm home free for Christmas break. I promise y'all a post sometime before the end of December.

    Big news!!

    I plan on continuing this story!!

    I have begun a re-post at http://boards.theforce.net/message.asp?topic=9852335, and when I've gone through everything that JG and I wrote, I'll start up with the new stuff... reposting is actually an awesome way of getting back into it (for me) and picking it up where it was previously.

    I won't be continuing the story in this thread; rather it'll be continued in the other thread.

    I hope you guys enjoy it!! :)

    I knew it! I knew it! Just when I get some words on the page to start up the next post something like this happens! Well... I'm now at a lost as to what to do. Should I continue to write the next post, and post it here, until Mr. P gets up the entire story or wait?

    Well... I don't plan on actually writing anything new until I get to the point in the story (in the other thread) where 1) I figure out exactly where we were in LotR, 2)[b/] what exactly we were planning on doing in the near future with the story, and 3) college applications are done.

    So... basically in that thread there'll be nothing "new" for at least a couple months (I think). If the posting schedule (Sun, Tues, Thurs) is going too slow I may pick up the pace to one post every day (except friday and saturday).

    But anyway -- if you want to join on the team, that's awesome. However, we need to talk about what we had planned. We (me and JG) had planned out the ending to this story and also a sequel, and I really like those things. :)

    I have FINALLY had enough time to finish reading this, and I am in awe. Such a wonderful job by all the authors!!

    But it's a bummer that it has slowed down... The story is too wonderful to be forgotten. :)

    Actually, since Mr. P is reposting this story, with an eye toward going forward, I'm going to lock this thread to avoid confusion.
