Oops, I spent so much time coming up with those different words, that I forgot to add a follow on.

No worries, Grondy :). Your sentence more than made up for the missing prompt.

'A wandering Elf, a thrall escaped, whom Beleg met and comforted.'


A drifting child of Illuvatar, bondage fled, happened upon another Sindarin elf of great strength and stamina by whom he was aided.

From my calendar once again:
"Of all the Istari, he was the closest to the Eldar and was the only Wizard who truly cared about things of seemingly small value like Hobbits and trees."

Amongst the population of Wizards, Gandalf had the esteem of the 'Elves of the Three Kindreds'; being the one of them who fully appreciated entities of minor apparent worth, such as Halflings and forests.

(timber is to trees as ham is to pigs, so I really couldn't justify its usage in this context.)

And here we have Mr Saruman's charming residence with both mountain and valley views from all windows and all the charm one normally associates with such an historical building and just wait until you see what he has done with the interior....



He thought of all the things he kept in his own pockets: fishbones, goblins' teeth, wet shells, a bit of bat-wing, a sharp stone to sharpen his fangs on, and other nasty things.

The chap over there, named Pierre by the French, and who plays a small piped wind instrument collected a bag of capsicums preserved in a vinegar solution. Ho ho!
