Suddenly Gandalf laughed. 'Come inside!' he shouted, and putting out both
his arms he lifted the astonished Sam, shears, grass-clippings and all, right
through the window and stood him on the floor.

If you are absolutely sure it's right, then you can go. Unless the person specifies, of course.

'Have hope!' said Boromir. 'I am weary, but I still have some strength left, and Aragorn too. We will bear the little folk. The others no doubt will make shift to tread the path behind us. Come, Master Peregrin! I will begin with you.'


This is from TTT:

'________ warned __ not to go ___ into _______,' he said. 'Do you ____ why, _______? What are the ______ of the ______ that _______ had heard?'

OK, since no one is responding, maybe that's a little hard. I'll fill in some:

'I thought I was ______,' said ______;'but I don't want to _______ of it. Let us ______ of what we are to ____ now! Let us ____on!'

'I thought that I was lost,' said Frodo; 'but I don't want to speak of it. Let us think of what we are to do now! Let us go on!' Chapter VIII 'The Barrow-downs'

Here's the next one:

Quote:
The _____ drew nearer. ____ had no ____ to find any ______-_____ better than the general ________ under the _____; ___ and ______ crouched ______ a large tree-____, while _____ crept ____ a few yards towards the ____.
Its from FOTR, if that helps at all. I also filled in a few words, just to keep the thread going. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

The hoofs drew nearer. They had no time to find any hiding-place better than the general darkness under the trees; Sam and Pippin crouched behind a large tree-bole, while Frodo crept back a few yards towards the lane. FotR ch3 Three is company.

So then Arwen comes along and posts a blank to throw Gollum off the scent and give Bilbo time to escape.

It is Thoden speaking to Merry in The Muster of Rohan.

Quote:
'This is no journey for such steeds as Stybba, as I have told you,' said Thoden.
Give me some time to come up with a new one, please.

OK. I don't think this is very difficult, but I like the passage very much.

Quote:
‘Here is the _____ of _____ on earth,’ he said, ‘and here my _____ dwells ever, unless there be a _____ beyond the dark _____ that we still must _____, you and I. Come with me!’ And taking _____ hand in his, he left the _____ of _____ _____ and came there never again as _____ _____.

"Here is the heart of Elvendom on earth," he sais, "and here my heart dwells ever, unless there be a light beyondthe dark roads that we still must tread, you and I. Come with me!" And taking Frodo's hand in his, he left the hill of Cerin Amroth and came there never again as living man.

I'm absolutely certain I'm right so is it all right if I just carry on?

Here is the next quote:

"You do not ___ me or ____ me much that concerns yourself, _____" said ______.

"You do not ask me or tell me much that concerns yourself, Frodo," said Gildor.

Is that it ? (I`ll have to ponder on a new quote first...)
