This could explicate just about any crisis relating to LotR, The Hobbit, or The Sil.:

"Alas! Woe! ...Hey, look, Eagles!"

Ruffians with rumpled raiment ran 'round wrecking.

My summaries of the five books of the Silmarillion:

The Ainulindale: Melkor's musical mayhem makes middle-earth its mishaps.

OR

Then God said "Let there be music" and there was music. (Sorry, I realise it's a word too long...)

The Valaquenta: Good things comes in sevens.


The Quenta Silmarillion: Oooh! Shiny! Yuck, blood- love! Oooh! Shiny!

Formendacil, what about;

"God said "Let there be music" and there was music." ?

_____________________________________

Ok here’s my take on 'The Hobbit'

"Dwarves want Gold. Dragon has gold. Dwarves go after Dragon."

OR

"Down Dwarves Drive to defeat Dragon."

Here’s "The Lord of the Rings"

"Ruling ring rocks rural residents"

Wow, that sounds like a Newspaper headline.

This one only works for the films-
LOTR (from Frodo's POV)
"Stronger, taller, wiser guy tells me not to do something, I do it."
and
"Stupidly happy, terror, stupidly happy, terror."
or
"Enter monster. Monster tries to eat me. Someone else kills monster. Enter monster. Monster tries to eat me..."

From Legolas' POV

"See monster. Kill it. Look good. See monster. Kill it. Look good."

Shield In the style of a play (or advert) - 10 words per actor

Fancy fantasy featuring favorable fraternity fearlessly fighting fierce foreign foes.

Just jolly, jumbled, junior jingoism?

Crivvens! Contrary, cohort: cruel claptrap cut, convivial content contained.

Enjoy each element, encourage everyone!
