Palantir of Fortune "Minor Works" edition

This is the same as the other Palantir games only with Tolkien works generally outside the Middle-earth materials (Tom Bombadil a marginal exception).
Works could include Roverandom, Farmer Giles, Adventures of Tom Bombadil, Leaf by Niggle, Smith of Wootton Major, and perhaps The Father Christmas Letters (which is, in a sense, about 100% quotes). I'm not sure, because of the style, of including The Homecoming of Beorhnoth Beorthelm's Son. If the thread is approved by Saucepan Man he could make the call on including Beorthnoth.

Rules: The quote is a series of blanks which are filled in by letters guessed by players until someone guesses the quote. Whoever guesses correctly gets the thread. You should identify the book the quote is from, and naming the speaker would be nice, unles it would slow things up too much.

To start:

Silmaril

Those works are all in print, Perky - I bought them within the last couple of years. I would suggest adding Smith of Wootton Major to the list, since that story is also included in Tales from the Perilous Realm. Great idea, Tuor!

Oh, and I'd like to start off with an S, please.

Smith of Wootton Major added above.

(I just picked up a copy of Roverandom this year. It's an interesting, and very quick, read), as is The Father Christmas Letters (another world from The Homecoming.
