Ok, so the way things are now, I am not entirely sure that I should stick my post in right away (the fact that it's only halfway done is a factor, of course). If anybody wants to put up saves, the time to do it is now, or else you're going to find yourselves face to face with Leninia very soon.

Esty, thank you so much for the lyrics.

I went ahead and posted, since I have two papers due this week and no time to do this later, plus the whole trip back to Duke looms ahead tomorrow.

Who wants to challenge Leninia to a contest? And who will be our impartial judge? *Lush casts an eye toward Saucepan Man longingly*

Well, Merisu thinks she's the obvious candidate, what with her Elven musical abilities. Remember? She sang Gravlox into the Halls of Mantoes! Besides, she wants the Entish Guitar... Having Saucy's 'Soregum' finally catch up with the Itship to be an impartial judge is a great idea! How about it, Cacophonous One?

Thanks for a fantastic post, Lush! You did some wonderful writing for our characters, and the idea of a singing contest is fun! Thanks too to Diamond for the fast reaction - both hers and Vogie's. And continuing backwards, thanks to Mith for warning us eloquently about loyers and their dangerous spells!

By the way, anyone is welcome to post for the current captivity...

Silmaril Impartial? Hahaha!

I second (or third?) that motion for Soregum to catch up and judge. After all, he's had a thing for Pimpi ever since... well, I forget how he saw her from Moredough, but he saw her somehow and has had a thing for her ever since. I don't forget these kind of things. Mwah ha ha ha ha.

If only the rules could be bent a little so that Merisu and Pimpi could sing a duet... Merisu has the better voice, but Pimpi has the partiality of the impartial judge. (And since when has the Itship ever followed the rules laid down by their various captors and hosts, anyway?)

Great post, by the way, Lushy. Remind me to ask you to write my characters for me if I become unavoidably detained before the end.

My, what a wonderful flurry of posts. Gravlox can of course expect a suitably warm welcome back in the Dark Tower Block.

As to the matter of the planned competition, Soregum will be delighted to oblige. It's about time he caught up with the Whatever-the-current-name-of-the-Gallowship-is-ship anyway. His impartiality can of course be assured, in the sense that I can assure you that it contains not a hint of "im". As Diamond says, if Soregum is judging and the aforementioned Thing-ship want to stand the best chance of winning, then step forward the cute half-Hobbit with the pretty blue eyes and curly red hair. Then again, anyone offering anything sufficiently edible and calorific or herbal and smokeable would be in with a good chance too ...

I have an idea for a post, but it may be a few days before I get a chance to hammer it out and post it. (How does Fog on the Barrow Downs go again?) In the meantime, feel free to enjoy the delights of Leninia's hospitality.

A duet with Merisu and Pimpi could definitely work, since Leninia will be using the Entish Guitar anyway. I do suggest you bribe the judge, just in case.

Showering Soregum with foodstuffs is definitely an option, but I think Vogonwë might have something to say about anything else.

Saucy -- could you find it in your heart to move your save till after my post? It wasn't up when I began to compose, so mine was supposed to seque out of Squatter's eloquent dsecription of falling and regrouping. My seque now has a bit of a stutter. It doesn't advance the plot or anything, so depending on what you were planning I hope that will work.

Lush, are Leninia's delusions of grandeur big enough to give her the idea of taking it up against the whole group? I have some nice ideas for a song contest (based on the Eurovision song contest, since we've already had an 'Idol' parody in Soreham). I'd like to structure the dramaturgy more than we usually structure scenes, planning the order of posts but not writing everything myself - we'd then have people writing their own performances. I'd thought of a barbershop quar/or quintet for most of the guys (Vogy, Etc., O2, Kuru and possibly Gatesy as well), a musical song-and-dance for Grrralph, a solo by Merisu, Leninia's response and then a climax with Pimpi saving the day/competition. What do you all think? I'm open for ideas.

Soregum has made it through the (somewhat familiar) realm of the Marrow Bones and arrived at Leninia's Mansion.

Let the competition begin ...

I have got a paper on yummy Yeats that's due tommorrow, so I shall hold off on posting until tommorrow night, I think.

Does anybody want to do anything before I open the competition?

Fantastic posts, folks! Thanks so much to each of you: Squatter, good to have you active again – poor Etceteron! Diamond, nice interaction of our favorite (i.e. currently only) couple. Saucy, your post is wonderful! We now have a name for the homeland of the Hobbits – the Mire. Then the M-B – black sky and green fog seem so strangely evocative of something familiar, as do the scraps of conversation. BW, great use of the Hobbit hole allusion! And a Hamlet quote too…

OK, now the planning for the song contest posts: Lush will announce the begin of the contest. I will post for those who can/will not post their own performances. If you want to do a solo performance or coordinate a duet with another writer, please let me know. Orogarn Two will; anyone else? I will put those males who do not choose to do solos into the barbershop quartet and write for them. Non-performance posts can be inserted at will. PM me with any questions about specifics you might have.

edit: I suppose the male group could be a boygroup instead of a barbershop quartet - any ideas are welcome.

I've filled in my Pre-Gap-Departure Save -- Gateskeeper is on the edge of a change of heart. And he will be delighted to solo in the contest. Gatesy has a new Sound-Card plug-in for his staff, and now would be the perfect time to try it out. Or perhaps he can work some magic on the rest of the guys so that they can dance and sing like a boy-band. I'm open to suggestions!

Wonderful post, Thena! Nintendo the Blue indeed!!

Having Gatesy turn the motley crew of guys into a boygroup sounds like fun! Do you have time to write a post for them? So far, it looks like we have: Vogie, tenor; Etceteron, baritone; Kuruharan, bass; and Gatesy, countertenor (remember the squeaky voice?!). Let me know if you have ideas and can schedule that.

I've put a save that should be filled in by Saturday morning. I risk getting fired if I don't work today, and last night was spent indulging my decadent lifestyle. Apologies all around.

Decandent lifestyle is always a good excuse.

Soregum is, of course, up for judging the competition. Feel free to incorporate his reactions to the various acts. I will post something at the end by way of an adjudication. (Hmm, who's gonna win?)

Mind you, I might have to post something soon for the Dread Developer too. After all, seems he's got to get to Valleyum somehow now.

Bah! Seems like eveyone's acting like rats deserting the sinking ship. Well, Môgul has a few more tricks up his sleeve. Just remember, it's always best to be on the victor's side.

Deus ex machina, eh, Thena. Well, we shall see ... [drat, now where's that evil smilie, oh well, nothing for it then ....] ... MWA HA HA!!!!

So I was going to go see a bellydancer tonight, but that doesn't look like it's working out, so lo and behold, I decided to be good tonight, and went ahead and posted.

Who shall be our first contestant?

OK, I posted for Merisu; the competition begins with the 'boy group': Vogie, Etc., Kuru and Gatesy. Thena, do you have time to write that post within a day or two/three? If not, I'll write it - or happily pass it on to any volunteer who wants it. After that, we will have performances by Grrralph and O2 before Merisu sings. I would suggest that Pimpi lie low in order to be forgotten by Leninia - perhaps she's backstage, still eating, scavenging food for Soregum, or something.

The performance posts need not be monumental in length; it's just more fun to have various people posting than if only one did it.

Lush, please PM me about how we want to plan the finish, above all, what you would like to have happen to Leninia...

I will attempt to get a post up tonight(Sunday) but I do have some work to do. Knowing the sporadic nature of my recent communications, I will say that if I do not have a boy-band post up by Tuesday evening, please continue without me for the moment. Good job, all.

I have put up a save for a quick post for Soregum to react to being co-opted into the Simon Cowell role (ah, but even Soregum's not as evil as THAT).

I'll try to fill it out in the next day or so.

Soregum's Save has now been filled in. Unfortunately, it doesn't quite follow on from Esty's previous post, but neverthless the stage is now set for the barbershop quartet, boy band, four piece combo or whatever it is that they are ...

Thanks for great posts, Saucy, BW and Thena! I put up a save for a brief explanation of the point distribution and for Soregum's rating of the first act. BW or Mith, whoever of you is ready for the next post may proceed.

I was reviewing some old posts and came across this tidbit posted by Mithadan sometime in September:
Quote:
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe that our next stop in this little ramble is the Forest of Canned Corn. After that, should our valiant band survive the encounter with the inhabitants of that wood, we will be paying a visit to Dorktank.
Did we intentionally cut the visit to Dorktank, just as PJ did to the movie? Horrors...

The Eye The contest is afoot!

Perhaps Sauerkraut's fate can be addressed in the Extended Edition, Thena.

Just had to comment on the contest entries so far, which are utterly inspired.

The thought of Gatesy, Earnur, Vogie and Kuru prancing around in their Village People get up is most amusing. I trust that Lord Etceteron wore a handlebar 'tache for the occasion. Mind you, I was looking forward to a rousing chorus of "R-O-E-B" complete with actions.

And Orogarn Two's Slim Shady routine was fantastic. Great lyrics! I always saw him as a heavy rocker myself, but never again. Someone give that man an ice-hockey mask and chainsaw.

At this rate, Soregum is going to have a very difficult time choosing (if he bases his decision on merit, that is, which is of course most unlikely).

What, Thena, you were expecting continuity in this RPG?? Actually, I forgot all about Dorktank - shall we do a "meanwhile, back at the ranch" for it? If anyone has some good ideas for a flashback or something similar, please do let me know.

I put up another save for rating O2's inspired performance - I wonder, does he have a good enough reputation? Now it's Grrralph's turn before Merisu takes the stage.

Not that Leninia, uh, knows anything about mind-altering substances.

I object -- never once have I implied that Vogonwë has a bad singing voice. Actually, I'm quite impressed by those dance moves, so all is well. Though I have no idea which Village Person he was supposed to be. (Hey, I'm a child of the 90's. Baby of the 80's, child of the 90's, woman of the 00's. Stop laughing.)

Smashing good performance by O2, though I have to say that the whole Eminem thing just about smashes the Travest-O-Metre ™ in the most brutal and resonding way yet. Are the cropped locks going to be permanent? If so, there goes Oggie's chance to join up with The Darkness and revive the big hair style.

Anyway, the point of this post is to say that I'd like to get a short post in between Merisu and Lenina's performances. My thought was that Pimpi was supposed to go after Merisu, but has a bout of extreme stage fright (as well as serious doubts about the song she's supposed to perform) and ends up losing her turn, only to come back in resounding triumph after Lenina thinks all has been won. So anyway, letting me get a Save in edgewise should suffice before Lush can go ahead.

That's a great plot twist, Diamond! I'm writing Merisu's performance post now, but it takes time to get it done well, so it will be another day or so before it's up. You can get a post and/or save in then.

I've filled in the first save for points, after the SmallShire People's performance. Sorry, Americans, the Eurovision song contest reference will be unfamiliar to you... Next save to be filled later today.

O2 now has his points as well; after the current saves are filled in, Merisu's performance will go up...

Sorry, Lush. Grrralphie seems to have temporarily shanghaied the Entish Guitar. My apologies to Jön, Pôl, Jörj and the Hobbit Ringo.

Rock on, Dudes!

My save is up. I took the liberty of assuming that Soregum's rating would follow form for Grrralph performance.

Such wonderful posts, everyone - I wish I had time to rave about them, but alas! I'm busy writing my own posts. Grralph has his points - the result probably won't surprise anyone. Now that that save is filled, I've put up the next, to be completed within hours. (No, don't ask how many hours, though I do hope within 24...)

Lush, after that it's Leninia's turn to sing, then Pimpi's belated performance will take place - we hope! After that Saucy will post for Soregum.

Anyone who wishes may post backstage whispering or subplots from far away.

Leninia has sung her swan-song.

As soon as Pimpi performs and Soregum is done, can I still have a little freak-out show for the plain purposes of getting some pity?
