the guy who be short has just left Hobbiton.
Last night I had a weird dream that Darth Vader was the head of the Nazgul, of whom there were only two. They could shoot ice out of their hands as will. There was some sort of conspiracy theory I've forgotten, but I was the sort of spy, trying to find out what they were up to and all that. It ended with a grand finale at a train station, with all of us shooting ice at one another.

I also had another dream before, which was quite bizarre. I was in the fellowship, but we were all on bikes to get through Moria. Then, Smeagol was with us, but he looked like I R Baboon from I M Weasel. We got lost in Lorien, which was actually run by baboons...

Oh gosh I had this dream the other night that I met the guys that played the four hobbits (Frodo, Sam, Merry, Pippin) and I held them captive then made them sign my LOTR books... Weird

I had a rather vivid and extraordinary dream. In it, I saw a clip of the Hobbit movie and it was horrible. It was the Rivendell scene and some traveling bits. I think Elijah Wood was playing Bilbo. Hugo Weaving was Elrond and he had some very stupid lines, I wish I could remember them. But the dwarves were the worst. Only about a third of them had beards and they were stupid and had a very poor sense of humour. They looked like wrestlers and their lines included jokes that referred to celebrities of our time & world. One of them might have been joking about Paris Hilton and one definitely said something about Patrick Wolf. All in all, it was disastrous.

I feel almost dirty and wish to never sleep again after my dream last night. It has been a very long time since I was graced with a LOTR dream, most of my dreams have involved Jurassic Park and my inability to stay away from that blasted Isla Nublar, but when my LOTR dreams come back they come back with a vengeance.

But to the dream itself. A viking Grima Wormtongue was determined to get the Ring away from Frodo and Sam (the Ring being in Sam's keeping at the time). So, Grima sets off into Mordor to find these wayward Hobbits. He manages to capture Sam and proceeds to seduce him. Clearly Sam's love for Rosie Cotton was not enough to save him from that stud Grima. As Grima is getting ready to take the Ring from the now willing Sam, Frodo, in a manly sort of way, jumps down and snatches the Ring away before Grima can get it. And then in an even more manly way he prances away with Sam chasing him crying, "He's really not that evil Mr. Frodo."

Meanwhile I am trying to help Peter Jackson make a better LOTR movie. In doing so I take away his budgeting and refuse to let him use CGI. Then he shows me the non-CGI of Shelob, who looks like a black muppet. And somehow a Jim Henson spider muppet seems like a better idea than a more realistic looking CGI spider.

God I had a really strange dream about lotr last night and I've hardly though about the books in ages.

On the quest to destroy the ring was me Frodo and Gil-galad (the elf king)

When we reached Rivendell, I met up with Gil-Galad on a boardwalk populated with suspiciously human looking characters. Gil-Galad was smoking a cigarette and looked really annoyed. He told me he didn't want to do the quest as it was pointless. I told him that his love 'Arafel' would be in Minas Tirith and if he goes on the quest he'd see her.

Cue quest involving me shooting zombies with a shotgun. And a strange interlude where I meet my mum and I'm about to tell the reason Gil-Galad is on the quest., when my brother walks in the room. I change the subject so to hide the controversy about Gil-galad's reasoning.

We then reach Minas Tirith and meet Arafel who tells Gil-galad that his heart is too enamoured with the quest and there's no room in it for her.

Gil-galad looks really angry and then I wake up so I never found out what he was going to say.

Bit of a bizarre dream and I'm not sure where the name Arafel came from.

Dark-Eye The Adventures of Sauron the Seductress

(I warn you, this is weird)

Sometime ago, I had a dream I was Sauron and who was going to the conference of gods. But Sauron was not quite how we tend to imagine him - he was a very good-looking young woman, elegantly yet perfectly officially dressed with a wide-brimmed hat with black lace and dark red lipstick.

In she strode to the meeting hall, it was some sort of auditorium. She was, fashionably, a bit late. An old and venerable archangel was reading the list of the participants, doing a roll call and giving each god the number of their seat.

Saruman - who had the air and looks of a kind, geeky guy - was sitting on the seat row nearest to the door. Miss Sauron stopped to talk with her old friend for a moment. They exchanged greetings and started gossiping. Alatar and Pallando were not present in the meeting, although it was an important one. "They went for a holiday down south together, you know," Saruman told Sauron, giving her a meaningful look. "Together? I see," Sauron said, with an equally meaningful tone and a wicked grin on her face.

They continued joking for a short while until Sauron realised the roll call had ended and she hadn't been paying any attention. She headed to the front of the auditorium where the old archangel was standing. Her high heels made clicking sounds as she ascended the stairs on the side of the auditorium.

"Excuse me, I didn't hear my name," she said to the venerable crone. He turned to her slowly. "What is your name?" he asked. "Sauron," she said, brushing a lock of red hair from her face. "Your seat is 136, in the front row, next to Zeus." "Thank you."

Sauron found her place next to the half-naked Greek supreme god with white beard. "Hello," she said, sitting down. "Hi there," said Zeus. The dirty old god - as anyone familiar with Greek myths can guess - was eyeing the beautiful Sauron rather appraisingly. They started talking in whispers although the old archangel was talking and everybody else was listening to him with veneration. Zeus started boasting to Sauron of his great strength and she was playing along because of her own reasons. She even bowed down to feel his leg muscles. "You must be as strong as Hercules," she exclaimed quielty and he gave her a pleased grin.

What happened next, I cannot tell, for my dream unfortunately ended. I would have very much liked to see more of the adventures of this babe called Sauron! This dream got my imagination running, though, and it is quite interesting if you compare it to Sauron taking the pleasant form of Annatar...

Haha thanks guys. I tend to have long and weird dreams every now and then, it is kind of disturbing but definitely cool. It's good we have threads where I can recount them.

I had a dream I was a dwarf scout on a small and secret expedition to Moria. I knew there was a balrog and I was afraid, but we all had firm faith in retaking Khazad-dűm. There were monsters: orcs and giant spiders, but we managed to avoid them all and spent a night in the mines before going back to report to our leaders. Visually, the dream was stunning.

I woke up this morning after 6-ish hours of sleep to my alarm going off. My dream ended mid-sentence when I drifted to awakeness.

I had been explaining to somebody completely seriously that dwarves don't procreate the way humans and elves do, but from beginning to end through their anus.

I am sorry, confused, and very amused.

I dreamed that I missed the school bus, rode Shadowfax to school, and arrived in Science class only to have my teacher turn into a Balrog. I then woke up and remembered that I had graduated earlier this month...

This is The Hobbit dream, to be precise, or what's more unusual, a dream about The Hobbit film.

I was in a cinema - a 3D-cinema no less - watching the third part of The Hobbit, which nonetheless was probably something that should have happened in the second part - and it was the part when Bilbo enters the Mountain to spy on Smaug. He walked down some staircase in almost total darkness and then there was a man who looked like something between bearded Wormtongue and Andy Serkiss. It was Smaug in his human form! Yes, Smaug could shapeshift into a human form if he wanted. But he was blind and could rely only on his sense of smell, hearing or feeling somebody's steps resonating through the floor.

He started searching for Bilbo in the darkness, reaching out with his hands, and it was actually pretty creepy. I thought "wow, they did this well" and then Smaug stopped just about a meter in front of Bilbo, who probably had realised that Smaug couldn't see him, and stopped moving and breathing. I was thinking "that's well done, but doesn't Smaug anyway remember the last point where he had heard Bilbo from? Wouldn't he continue in that direction anyway?" Then Smaug (who had his back turned to the camera) started turning around. I thought "okay, they probably made it so that he suddenly hears some movement from the other side, otherwise why would he turn to the completely opposite direction?" Then he looked straight into the camera and it struck me: He turned because he senses movement - me! Or, the audience, anyway. Of course the audience moves, I reflected, brilliant trick from the filmmakers, since other people were no doubt wondering about the same thing I did, why would Smaug turn, and now it has been explained - he heard or sensed them!

It was rather scary when Smaug started creeping towards the camera, but then obviously the audience stopped moving and so he eventually would move back towards Bilbo, who however meanwhile had time to think about what to do next. I thought that was pretty inventive, to make the audience part of the movie and at the same time solve the problem of giving Bilbo a bit of respite from Smaug so he could get out of the tight situation. Not bad, I'd say. I think there wasn't anything much more in that dream, however.

I had a dream tonight, evidently in light of the recent threads up in the Books forum, that Theodred returned to life (either actually, or as a ghost, I wasn't sure). He appeared before Eomer, and Eomer said something very Shakespearian-sounding, like "your face doth look familiar to me". Theodred was disappointed at Eomer's face recognition skills. He then told Eomer that the country has the potential to prosper, and yet it just barely chugs on. He showed Eomer some mine, I think, and how much whatever they were mining for there was compared to how much they actually got out of it. Then, leaving Eomer to work with the mining industry, he got himself a chariot drawn by two horses and rose to a different place, probably the border. There were two guards. He told them he's going to lift this country up, and gave them each a few orders. Then he said he was going to the next thing he wants to improve in Rohan, and left them the chariot ("and those no-good horses!") because they were too slow. But the guards figured that this chariot was a very recent design, made after Theodred's death, so he just probably didn't know how to attach the harnesses properly. When they examined it, sure, as soon as they got a piece to click in place the horses whisked away, chariot and all.

And in the end it came down to Eomer and Theodred debating the nature of the non-covalent attraction between chocolate pudding and a metal spoon.

What the hell was going on in my subconscious that night???

Anyways, have a new dream to report. Eomer (again) was walking with Aragorn. Aragorn was explaining how Rohan got corrupted. Eomer wanted to know the name of the evildoer who did this to his country, but Aragorn would not say. His elusive answers kept riling Eomer up. Finally, Aragorn dramatically revealed the name Saruman. "Saruman!" exclaimed Eomer, "But I have met him before! That was the name of an old servant of a lord who was passing by. He must have posed that way to trick us! He is not a servant at all then!"

Judging by this entry and the last one, my subconscience thinks Eomer is not a very bright lad.
