beep-beep-beep-beep-beep-beep-beep! Hello? Is this the funny farm? Oh. Well, this freak obssessed with rocks is on the loose at planet-tolkien.com. Really? Oh, okay. Alright, I won't approach them. Give it some rocks to keep it happy? Okay.

Well, in that weird David Eddings book they walk up this mountain and use their magic powers to deflect boulders coming down the path and then Belgarath (I think that's his name) gets really wasted, and whatsisname and thingy have to help him.

I hope this is all in fun, people! :D

As for a novel with rocks in the plot....I have no idea, unless it was The Neverending Story, which had a Rockbiter in it.

Have you tried the Rocky films? *giggles*
I was born to catch dragons in their dens
And pick flowers
To tell tales and laugh away the morning
To drift and dream like a lazy stream
And walk barefoot across sunshine days.

I think that if someone else had written a story with rocks being important to the plot, it would be unlikely to be a breach of copyright unless you started using similar characters and places. It all depends, of course. (I am not a lawyer, btw.)Co-incidences of plot have happened before. Even JK Rowling had several little known authors claim to have 'invented' Harry Potter and the Muggles first.

I wouldn't be too concerned, Ar-edain37. Your own work will naturally be different from anyone elses, because every author has his own individual 'voice'. Plagiarism has to be deliberate and is difficult to prove in any case.
