Downer Scenarios
 
I'm not quite sure what to name this thread, but here goes...(see above).

The idea behind this is that each person posts a dialogue between characters that occur between characters in one of Tolkien's works, but adjusted for the Downs and with Downers as characters.

For example:

Eonwe: (to Legate)I daresay we shall act much the same after posting for days on the downs.
Legate: It would take more than a few days, or weeks, or years, of posting on the Barrow-Downs and reading Tolkien lore to make you act like Legate.



PS. No purposeful attacking or insulting of other Downers is allowed


HAVE FUN!

Hookbill to Oddwen: "Very odd you are, indeed. Root and twig, very odd!"

"As a small token only of your friendship alatar asks this, that you should PM this davem and get from him, willing or no, a little post, the least of posts, to make on his thread. It is but a trifle that alatar fancies, and an earnest of your good will. Post yourselves, and three threads that you possessed of old shall be revived for you."

"And what gift would a Dwarf ask?" said Thinlómien turning to Groin.
"There is nothing, Lady Thinlómien," said Groin, bowing low and stammering. "Nothing, unless it might be – unless it is permitted to ask, nay, to name - a single post to Tears of Mirrormere, which surpasses the posts in the Mead Hall as the stars surpass the gems of the mine. I do not ask for such a gift. But you commanded me to name my desire."

"A Balrog Wings thread," muttered littlemanpoet. "Now I understand." He faltered and leaned heavily on his keyboard. "What an evil fortune! And I am already weary."
