The Writing Guild is about writing, Loriene88. Anything creative is fine, it doesn't have to follow the book. I'll look forward to reading it.

I've decided on a name of my story:

Torn: The Final Decision
What do you do when you are torn between one life and another? One love and another? One choice and another???

The pack of Orcs raced through Mordor, dragging Sam and Frodo further and further from their destination. Neither the Orcs or their Uruk slave drivers had noticed they were Hobbits. They prayed their luck would hold. The Orcs seemed to be headed towards the Black Gate. The Hobbits didn't know that the Captains of the West had reached Mordor and were prepared to fight. They marched on for hour without rest. Frodo's strength was fading. He would not last much longer. Sam tried to keep Frodo strong, but it was no use. The weight of the Ring had become unbareably heavy and it drained what little strength Frodo had left. The thought of the unending road that they had yet to pass was no help. The wall of mountain loomed above and around them. They seemed to stretch out over the whole of Middle-Earth. And yet, they seemed an eternity away from where they were. The thought of marching to those cursed mountains made Sam's stomach turn. He knew Frodo would never make it there, and if he did, he would surely die of exhaustion once there. They continued on and did what they could to hold to their hope and strength....

(where ever there is a line of stars like above, it means I am switching from Frodo and Sam's story, to Aragorn, Legolas, Gimli, Pippin, and Mariesthrill's story. I will take the time to tell you of Mariesthrill now since she one of the most important characters...
Mariesthrill: For those of you who have seen my RPG posts, you should know at least a bit about her. She is the betrothed wife of Legolas Greenleaf, and the youngest child of Haldir and Maelana. She has one brother who's name is Lothirtan. Her father has trained her well in the skill of the bow and sword and she has yet to be rivaled by any aside from her father. When she was little, her father took her to Mirkwood. Haldir was a friend of Thranduil, King of Mirkwood. When Legolas and Mariesthrill met, they became fast friends. Upon seeing this, Thranduil suggested the betrothal and Haldir agreed. Legolas and Mariesthrill grew up together and after falling in love when they were yet teenagers, they were quite content with the betrothal. She wields the sword Norcanna of her father and bares a ring that was her mother's. For more information, e-mail me and I can tell you anything you need to know.)

The battle raged on. Legions of Orcs, Uruks, Southrons, and other evil creatures poured from the Black Gate. Legolas fought beside his wife, Mariesthrill. Gimli fought beside Pippin. Gandalf fought beside Aragorn against the army of Mordor. The fighting was relentless. All of Sauron's strength and will was bent towards protecting his land. The creatures under his reign were empowered by the increasing rage and fear of their master. It was all the Captains of the West and their soldiers could do to stay alive.
Mariesthrill, daughter of Captain Haldir of Lothlorien had never seen war. She fought with the Rohirrim in the Battle of Helm's Deep but had never seen fighting this intense. She had trained all her life for just such an occasion. Her fighting was graceful, almost dance-like. Legolas' was the same. Mariesthrill swung Norcanna, the blade given to her by her father. The side of the blade caught a nearby Orc, decapitating it and the one next to it. She continued to block and deal blows. As her sword began to slow her down, she sheathed it and drew the two small Elven Blades from their compartment in her back armor. She swung left and right simultaneously. Orcs beyond count fell beneath her blade. The fighting continued....
Legolas, son of Thranduil fought valiantly. Side-by-side with Mariesthrill, they cut through their enemies quickly and quite easily. He weilded his father's blade and did it no shame with the amount of Orcs he slew with it. Unlike Mariesthrill, Legolas found his sword more effective than his smaller blades. And, since he had no time to draw his bow, he relied heavily on his sword and it carried him well. The fighting continued....
Gimli, son of Gloin fought with little effort. His axe sent many Orcs to the pile of the dead. As more and more Orcs poured from that Black Land, more and more fell to the edge of his axe. Because he was smaller than the rest and was tainted with the blood of his enemies, his enemies would often take him as one of their own. He used this to his adventage whenever possible. His axe was lighter to him than to most and he wielded it better than could be expected. The fighting continued....
Pippin, the only Shireling there was lost and confused. He did his best to stay alive. His companion, Gimli protected him from a sad end. He still clung to the sword he retrieved in the Barrow-Downs and swung it when he saw it best. He, like Mariesthrill had neer seen war. However, being a Hobbit he had never prepared for it. He depended on GImli more than his sword. If Gimli was somehow separated from him, Pippin would surely die. The fighting continued....
Gandalf the White Wizard of Middle-Earth fought with all of his strength. He wielded FoeHammer along side his wizard staff. The combined strength of which made him a powerful ally and a deadly enemy. Keeping a close eye on Pippin, he fought to protect him as well as the group. The fighting continued....
Aragorn son of Arathorn fought better than the rest. He claimed many enemy lives, Orcs and Evil Men alike. He, by far was one of the most powerful Men there. For he was Isildur's Heir, the Light of Elessar. His enemies knew this and cowered before him. The Captains of the West followed him and were confindent that if they died, it would be a death worth rememberance. Still, the fighting continued without end.

*******
Frodo and Sam pushed their legs onward. They didn't have far to go now. they wondered where they were marching to and whether or not they would ever escape. An hour had passed since they had started marching. They didn't know how much longer it would take before they reached their destination. The Uruks behind them slashed their whips and threatened against any amount of slowing in pace. Frodo's strength, and hope, and will was fading. The Ring had become terribly burdensome. He knew it was only a matter of time before he would no longer be able to carry it. Sam watched his master. He knew Frodo was weakening. He looked up to see how long it would be before they could stop. They had reached the Black Gate! They followed the company of Orcs through it and saw the battle outside. They scurried about as the Captains of the West slaughtered the Orcs around them with little effort. Sam clung to Frodo's side. If no one else, Sam would protect him....
