"Gimli" a Drabble or I hope that it is. (13 parts)
"Aragorn I thought you said that you wouldn't tell the Elf", said
"But Gimli, I didn't tell the Elf, I told you not a word," said Aragorn.
"Well he knows," said Gimli.
"Well didn't you think that he would of figured it out, when he pulled
up, " said Aaragorn.
"Yea, well there was so much happen with fighting the orc's, I didn't
think he would of notice," said Gimli.
"Well Gimli, you know that he has those keen eyes," said Aragorn.
"Yea, well just this once I wished his keen eye's wouldn't of seen
everything," said Gimli.
"Legalos and Gimli, Elrond had just told me that we muat take the
path of the dead and get them to help us fight", said Aragorn.
"What! Eomer had just said that place is evil, we can't go in there
because if we do we may not return," said Gimli.
"Gimli I thought that going into mountains was what you dwrafs loved?"
"Gimli, stop your complaining and lets go. Time is running out," said
"An elf will go in and a drwaf dare not, but then the elf will not let
me live it down." said Gimli.
"Hey wait up Aragorn and Legalos, you know I don't walk as fasted,"
"Come on Gimli, we are almost there," said Legalos.
When Gimli had almost got up with them, his toes hit something, he
looked down and make a loud grap and was frozen.
Aragorn and Legalos turned around to see what was wrong with Gimli.
They saw that Gimli was as stiff as an board. And when they fellowed
his eyes, they saw that two skulls had rolled infront of him.
Aragorn and Legalos looked at each other and just started to laugh so
When they stopped laughing Aragorn told Gimli to smap out of it.
Gimli finally looked up and said, "Get these things away from me."
Then they heard a voice, "Who dare enter into my domain?"
Gimli mouth made a "O" look and said. "Now they talk."
The voice said, "The way is made by the dead, and it is keep by the
I am Aragorn, come and fight for me.
"Only the King of Gondor can command us to fight."
Well I am Isildur hire, "Come and fight for me."
The dead man with a swork in hand went after.......
Aragorn to kill him.
Aragorn pulled out Anduril, put it to the dead men's throat.
"That blade was broken," said the dead men.
"Well it's been remade," said Aragorn. Now come and fight for me, "What
"They have no honor well they were alive, and they have none in death,"
"We have no time to waste now. We have to go to the ships now," said
"What! you mean that these dead people will be in the shiips?" said
"They are bond to obey the King and will do you no harm," said Legalos.
"Legolas you stand by me lad until we get off this ship," said Gimli.
"Gimli, the dead is not going ot hurt you," saud Legolas.
They got to the city and they could hear the Orc's talking and
complianing about them being late. When Aragorn, Legolas, Gimli and the
dead jumped off the ship, the Orc's started to back away.
"Look here lad there's enough for the both of us, so may the best drwaf
win," said Gimli
"Don't you mean the best Elf," said Legolas.
"Well whatever, no cheating now," said Gimli.
The orcs at the river were taken care of, so Aragorn and company moved
on to the battle field. Legolas and Gimli were having their counting
contest. They had reach the field and Aragorn yelled, "Legolas!"
Legolas turned around and saw an Oliphant with men on its back. So
Legolas run and got on the Oliphant and well he was shooting the men,
he was keeping count.
Meanwhile Gimli was also counting and watching Legolas. The dead men
were moving into the city. Aragorn was fighting and looking for the
King and Eomer.
Gimli stopped just in time to see Legolas…..
Take the rope and swing around, and then he took a knife and cut the
rope and then followed it up, as the men went down on the other side.
Then Legolas ran to the front of the Oliphant and shot him in the head.
The Oliphant started to go down and then Legolas just slide down the
trunk, in front of Gimli.
Legolas looked at Gimli, and Gimli said, "That still only count's as
Now Gimli that's not fair, there was at least twenty men up there and
then the Oliphant, plus the thirty that I killed before.
Gimli walked away talking to himself. Legolas was right behind him
saying, "Gimli you said no cheating and now that I won, you want to get
Gimli just keep on walking. They made it to Aragorn and the dead leader
was telling Aragorn they had fulfill their oath and it was time for him
to release them.
Gimli said, "Aragorn maybe we should keep them around, they are good
for a tight spot'.
The dead looked at Aragorn and said, "You promised".
"Yes I did, and you may go with my blessings and rest in peace, Bye",
"Aragorn, I still say that we should of kept them, forget about them
being dead, they would help us some more", said Gimli.
"No! I told them this war and this war only and they would fulfill
their oath. They done it and as promised I released them", said Aragorn.
"Gimli, stop acting like I am not here", said Legolas.
"Now what in the world are you two fighting about?" said Aragorn.
"Gimli's mad because I killed more orcs and men then he did" said
"Gimli, you can't be a bad sport about it now" said Aragorn laughing.
"Now you both stop that right now" said Gimli who was not laughing at
"Gimli, the count was fair," said Aragorn.
"Well the dead could have taken the Oliphant down, and then I would
have had a better chance in winning the count," said Gimli.
"Oh Gimli get over it, we have things that needs to be done," said
"Well what do we do now?" said Legolas.
"We need to see if we can fine anyone alive out in the field." said
"Oh, no! I'll do anything but that," said Gimli.
"These one don't talk," said Legolas.
"We must march upon the black gate," said Aragorn.
"Why? Let them stay there, why should we care?" said Gimli.
"Gandalf said, "Because 10,000 orcs stands beween Frodo and Mr. Doom."
"Oh! Well then what are you going to about it Aragorn?" said Gimli.
"We must empty his lands, so that Frodo can get across," said Aragorn.
"There is not enough here to fight Mondor," said Eomer.
"No there's not, but we draw the eye away and gave Frodo his chance,"
"Told you Aragorn that you should of kept the dead around longer, they
could fought," said Gimli.
"Centainty of death, small chance of success, what are we waiting for?"
"Another chance of you trying to win the count Gimli," said Legolas.
"Well laddie no cheating this time," said Gimli.
Gimli and Legolas stop your fighting and get ready to march," said
"Aragorn, what is it with this counting between those two?", asked
"Gimli losted the drinking game," said Legalos.
"No I did not, I only let you think that you won there Ladddie," said
"Gimli I was there and you did to lose," said Eomer.
"Gimli you lost the game," said Gandalf.
Saruman's Laundry - a double drabble
Gandalf stood beneath the mighty tower of Orthanc, looking up.
Saruman had summoned him and he wondered greatly that he was left waiting below after riding so hard to arrive quickly.
Also, the tower seemed festooned with small fluttering rags of some kind, way at the top. Were they a signal of some kind?
Saruman growled at his lackeys when they told him Gandalf had arrived. "I'm not ready! Thanks to your inept laundering..."
"But yer great n' mighty wizardness, we didn't know...."
"Even the dullest laundress knows you don't wash brights with
whites! It was bad enough when you washed the red cloak with the
robes and I was the Pink Wizard. And now, now you've gone and
washed them with all of the colored pennants!"
"We bleached 'em, sir... hung 'em to dry.... put 'em in the sun....," they bowed and scraped.
"Yes you did! And they better be white by now! I have company coming."
"We seen 'em sir, he's down below and sir... "
"Yes, and there he stays until I am the White Wizard again."
"If you don' mind us sayin' so, sir, he won't mind yer bein' a bit colorful.
All grey himself, probably never washed 'r nothin'! Maybe you could be the Wizard of Many Colours....or som'thin...."
