What do you "assign" to the Shire?

I feel we could stand to balance the negative
of Mordorian assignments with something more positive.
The contrast to Mordor
is not Valinor,
which is beyond the girth
of Middle Earth.
It's the Shire.
So in case you tire
of assigning from your ire
to Mordor, you might desire
to give some thought
to what you're quite sure ought
to be in the idyllic Shire.

I'll start.

Groves of tall trees never to be cut down.

Neighborhoods in which people passing by greet each other as a matter of course.

1420!

Cold, malty ales freshly hand pulled from oak barrels, served in heavy glass tankards?

Vast trenchers brimming with succulent roast beef, strong cheeses and fresh crusty bread?

Large chocolate cakes with chunks of fudge and with rich, foaming cream just falling out from the centres?

And then a nice soft lawn under a shady tree, beside a babbling brook, the perfect place to sleep it all off?

Dry cider and soft red wines.

Welsh butter.


Homemade marmalade - not too sweet.

Toad in the hole

Treacle pudding

(Well I think they would like a lot of food..)

Tabby & tortoiseshell cats -if the fine breeds are destined for Mordor let the Shire have down to earth moggies.

Larkspur and bluebells cornflowers and poppies - typical country garden and woodland/meadow flowers. The sort you usually can't buy.

Down duvets and pillows

Huge, squishy sofas and sheepskin cushions.

"Traditional Afternoon" tea

"The Archers" and Radio 4

I am going to stop now since I can hear the Elgar Cello Concerto playing.......

My big brother telling me bedtime stories in his deep bass voice, or my big sister who is Lúthien...

Just bed time stories in general. Grand adventure, eucatastrophe, and "happily ever after, till the end of his days..."

Lots of things I love just don't seem appropriate for the Shire. I can't really see the Gaffer much appreciating Anthony and Cleopatra...I'm more of a Grey Havens or Lothlorien type really...

However, elderflower cake.
Eggs so orange-yolked you think there's a fire.
Good stilton.
Courgettes and their golden flowers.
Lemon curd.
Hog roasts.

What, you say, something non-edible? Alright, if you insist. Punts. A perfect way to travel down the Brandywine (though preferably with someone else doing the work...)

How about giant libraries full with all the Tolkien and Tolkien related book's ever written, that have sofa's and kingsize beds and pillows and allow food and pillow fights as long as the book's aren't harmed? And maybe special bathrooms so you can read in the bath? And big window's to let all the light in? That sound's like a good way to sum everything up, what do ya think?

Chocolate that you melt in a cup of hot coffee with milk.

Quiet summer evenings.

The scent of lilac flowers.

The scent of freshly mown grass.

Fresh fruits.

Fresh air. (truly fresh and unpolluted, rare thing, nowadays. Of course, the Shire will have that on its own, but I'll send it just to be sure ;D).

Fluffy creatures.

Irish music.

I take it, Larien Telemnar, that you are not British, nor live on the east coast of the U.S.? Fish and chips (with vinegar) is a British favorite, comparable to the U.S. predilection for a burger and fries. Or maybe that's a bad example. Pizza and beer? Oh, that's another import. um...... I think you get the idea....

Warm apple pie

Big mugs of whole milk

Window seats

Waking up late on a Saturday morning with the sun streaming in through an open window on to your pillow.

Ceili dancing

Instrumental folk music

Violins and mandolins

Lemonade

Lying in the grass under a tree, reading

Wildflowers

Sausages

The Ragg. It reminds me of the Springle-Ring.

I would assign patchwork and quilts to the Shire. With the Hobbits' love of bright colours and comfortable things, I can well imagine them sewing leftover bits of their clothing fabrics into cheerful patterns for blankets and other things. There would be cotton calicos for the summer, cozy wools for the winter, and the scraps of velvet (from the rich Hobbits' clothes) would be made into decorative crazy quilts, like those in Victorian days.

Quilting bees are a sociable activity I could easily imagine taking place in the Shire. At first thought, one might wonder if they'd have time to sew, what with meal preparation taking up so much of their day, but since the families were large, I'm sure some of them were able to pursue other handcrafts. I can see the Hobbit women and girls sitting around a quilting frame, gossiping about Bilbo's quirks or whether Rosie wasn't going to look for another fellow soon, now that that Samwise chap had disappeared so long - and the fact that the armour Merry and Pippin wore must be horribly uncomfortable and heavy...

I'm sure Tolkien would have approved, as he was all for handcrafts instead of industrial production!

Is it just me, or did anybody else wonder why a lot more are being sent to Mordor than to the Shire? Is the world generally filled with things that belong to Mordor?

I admit to being quite an active poster in the "What do you assign to Mordor?" thread. Every simple annoying thing in my life I send to Mordor, when I find the time. But the other day, while I was contemplating whether or not to send a certain very Mordor-worthy something to the Black Land, a thought came to me so hard I could have touched it. ( ) Isn't there something in bad things that could make them more appropriately sent to the Shire instead?

Just a thought.

Now that I'm trying to turn over a new leaf, I'd like to send parents and their children to the Shire. Perhaps the serene environment will give them the opportunity to understand each other.

Or maybe just Fea and Sauce.
