The Ents are Moving
by Silivren Ithildin
1. The Ents are Moving
"Where are we going?" Pippin asked Treebeard.
"Ah, come on Pippin, don't tell me you haven't been listening!" Merry exclaimed.
"We are on our way to the new Fan Club message boards," Treebeard
explained, "all the Ents thought maybe the Entwives and the Entlings
might have heard about the big move and decided to go check it out from
wherever they have been living."
Bregalad added quickly, "It would be so wonderful to see them again, I can't wait to get there!"
"Now, now, Bregalad, don't be hasty," Treebeard said, "first we
have to stop by Wellinghall to get cleaned up for our first meeting
with the Entwives in a very long time."
Bregalad laughed, "Yes, we must look our best. Maybe we can talk
them into coming back to Fangorn with us after we check out the new
"That would be so sweet!" Pippin exclaimed.
"Come on everyone, to Wellinghall then the boards, but, how about
you all be hasty this one time? We wouldn't want to miss all the fun!"
2. The Ents Begin their Journey
"Are you guys ready yet?" Pippin asked, "we really are going to miss the fun if you don't hurry!"
"Hrum, Hoom," Treebeard answered, "this is our hurrying speed, Master Pippin."
"Bregalad is the only one who's ready," Merry exclaimed exasperated
beyond belief, "if you aren't ready in 5 minutes Pippin, Bregalad and I
are going to leave without you!!"
"Ok, ok, such hasty Hobbits!" muttered Treebeard trying to hurry
everyone along. "Finish up, finish up my dear friends. As our Hobbit
friends remind us, we must be on the move!"
At last the Ents were ready to go. "It's about time," said Merry, "I
bet everyone is all settled in and the boards are all decorated by now,
not to mention they have probably had a huge goo and duct tape fight
already! I wanted to see the Prancing Pony being fixed up!"
"That's ok, Merry, this way we can mingle with everyone and feel right at home when we get there!" Pippin said.
" I imagine that's where we will find you two, huh?" Bregalad said,
"We'll come get you when we get done exploring and looking around for
"Sounds wonderful to me," Merry exclaimed, "I feel the need for a good
pint of ale and some Old Toby, if we can borrow some from one of the
"Oh, that would be lovely!" dreamed Pippin, "what are we waiting for? Onward, my good Treebeard!"
With that the Ents begin their journey.
3. The Ents Have Arrived
"Are you sure you know where we're going, Treebeard?" Pippin asked.
"Sure he does Pippin. Have faith," Merry answered.
"The Message Boards are far away from our home, Master Pippin, but,
there has been so much talk out there about the move that we will have
no trouble finding it," said Treebeard. On they went at a fairly good
"Look, I see the boards!" Bregalad exclaimed, "Wow, look how shiny and
new they are!" "It looks like there are a lot of people on them though,
they must be very nice," Merry said.
Finally arriving, the Ents began to get their instructions from
Treebeard. "Spread out in teams of two and begin looking around for the
Entwives. While you're in a post, check out what it is all about and
see who has made the move to the new boards. Le'ts have some fun!
Bregalad, why don't you and I take Merry and Pippin to the Prancing
Pony Board so they may start having fun too. Everyone, when you have
finished checking out a post, come find me on the ME board header and
give me a report. If you find an Entwife or Enting bring them to me at
once, or, at least one of you come find me immediately and let me know.
Ok, let's go have some fun!"
Picking up Merry and Pippin, Treebeard and Bregalad headed towards the
Prancing Pony board. Walking into the Prancing Pony, Merry and Pippin's
faces lit up seeing the festive air and all the happy patrons.
"Look Merry," Pippin exclaimed, "they have 2 Strider Chairs! One for
each of us! Wow, this place looks great! Very busy too, must be a great
place to visit!"
"Hey Pippin, why don't you go get us a couple of pints and I will go
save our chairs!" said Merry, "Thank you Treebeard and Bregalad for
bringing us! We'll be here when you get ready to go." "Bye you two!"
Pippin told them.
"Have fun you young Hobbits," Treebeard said while turning around to go back to the ME board.
