An Unexpected Adventure  by KathyG 3 Review(s)

So the Misty Mountains must be crossed, of course, and it's a good thing they found that cave to camp out in! I've got "Far Over The Misty Mountains Cold" in my head now. Not a bad thing, of course! "Rudolph" the elf puts me in mind of "Elf Academy" and the reindeer named Gandalf, and I did notice the other nod to my atto indonyo. I think he'd approve. *hugs*

What to do about Saruman, indeed...of course he's Treebeard's neighbor, in a manner of speaking, but he's not the best neighbor in the world, to put it mildly! Heh!

And Aragorn, Aragorn, where HAVE you got to? This is not the time to disappear! Helm's Deep needs to be defended!!

Author Reply: I wish that Fiondil was alive to read this. One of the things I've long regretted is that I didn't get permission to become a story author here until he was dead. I'm glad you feel that he would like the reference to "Elf, Interrupted."

Yes, they do have to travel over the mountains, and thankfully, the cave is much safer to camp in now than it was when Bilbo and company attempted to spend the night there!

As for Saruman? I'll say he wasn't!

Aragorn had better show up, and quickly!

Author Reply: I join you in wishing that we could get Fiondil's reaction to this story! His comments were some that I always appreciated. DF

Happy Birthday, KarenG! I hope you're having a great day. :)

It's interesting to imagine Kevin at Helm's Deep.

Author Reply: Thank you! I appreciate it.

Yeah, it is, isn't it? =)

Author Reply: Kevin at Helm's Deep was a good deal of fun to write. We are well into the parts in which our story will diverge more from the original due to the presence of the children. Kevin will make a big difference at Helm's Deep. DF
