MEC Day 5: Best of the Fellowship/Day 6: Best of Thorin's Company

Day 5: Best of the Fellowship

I'd have to say the best of the Fellowship is Samwise Gamgee. 

He's loyal, brave, and loves to cook! A hobbit after my own heart. :)

Sam is also compassionate and... uh, caring.

Wouldn't that be the same thing?

Yes, it would. But that's not important right now. Don't interrupt!

'Nough about your favorite Fellowship member, my turn!

Fine. Go ahead!

Since I have to pick one, I will pick... 
(Dramatic Pause)
Duhn, duhn, DUHN!
 Peregrin Took!

He's has quite the sense of humor, like myself. I'm hilarious.
Not really.
Yes, I am quite funny!

You are?

  Yes, I am.


OK, my favorite member of the Fellowship is Legolas.

I really like the bow he carries, his shield/skateboard thing-a-ma-jiggy at Helms Deep, and that he can see very far.

And sometimes he makes funny comments. 

 So there we have the three who we think are the best of the Fellowship. :)

Day 6: Best of Thorin's Company
We all decided that our favorite of Thorin's company is Bofur. 

He has a caring side that we see come out here and there.

Bofur is really funny, too! :)
  Overall, Bofur is epic!

MEC Day 4: Favorite Scene

Surprise, surprise! My younger sister, Teddy will be joining Doofus and I on this epic adventure! Teddy's font will look like this. If you start having difficulties figuring out who is who, then you're off your tea!  Say "hi" Teddy.



Anywho, favorite scene...

Since I don't have one, I'll pick the first one I can think of! 

I like this scene:

It's is so very epic! Especially the music! :)

Favorite scene? Favorite scene? Uh, yes.

Yes? I don't remember that scene....

I don't remember that either!

Well, maybe you should have been paying closer attention!




OK, if I have to pick one scene, it would be:


 "Ah, well. Good morning!"

My favorite scene would probably have to be:
 the whole part from when they storm Bilbo's pantry...
 and all the way to...
the Blunt the Knives song!

Ta-da! There we have it! We could go on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and...

and on!!!!!!!!

OK, we get it!

MEC Day 3: Favorite Quote

Favorite quote? Oh, dear!

You can't do this to me! I like any line. :)

I have to agree with Doofus. I don't have a favorite quote! I guess we could try to come up with some good quotes.

 Frodo: "I wish the ring had never come to me. I wish none of this had happened."
 Gandalf: "So do all who live to see such times, but that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us."

Bilbo: "I've never used a sword in my life."
Gandalf: "And I hope you never have to. But if you do, remember this. True courage is knowing not when to take a life, but when to spare one."

Pippin: "Are we lost?"
Merry: "No."
Pippin: "I think we are."
Merry: "Shh! Gandalf's thinking."
Pippin: "Merry."
Merry: "What?"
Pippin: "I'm hungry."

 Radagast: "Something's wrong, Gandalf. Something's terribly wrong."
Gandalf: "Yes?"
Radagast: "(deep breath) Oh! I had a thought, and now I've lost it. It was right there on the tip of my tongue! Oh! It's not a thought at all. It's just a little... stick insect."

 Bilbo: "Today is my One Hundred and Eleventh birthday! Alas, eleventy one years is far too short a time to live among such excellent and admirable Hobbits. I don't know half of you half as well as I should like and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve."

There are the first six epic quotes/dialogues we could think of! :)
I think I'm quite ready for another post.

MEC Day 2: Favorite Movie

And we're off with day two! Favorite movie... this should be good. :)

Oh, yeah. This should be really good!

 My favorite LOTR movie is The Two Towers. I really enjoy the battle at Helm's Deep, the last march of the Ents, how we follow the different characters around, and all things Rohan (the music is one of the best parts)!

My favorite LOTR movie? Yes, yes, yes, yes... and even though I haven't seen it yet, yes.

You just like them? Is there anything that you really, really like?

Uh, characters, settings, languages, maps, music, and other what-nots.

Oh, well, I guess we don't have to elaborate on anything else, do we? By the way, in order to write a true LOTR post, one must always listen to music from the movies! Concerning Hobbits and King of the Golden Hall are excellent choices! Just sayin'. :)

Forth Eorlingas is good, too!

30 Day Middle-Earth Challenge: Day 1

The 30 Day Middle-Earth Challenge has arrived! I am so excited to go on this adventure! :) Are you? I hope you are.

Doofus- my brother- and I are going to be doing these posts together. I hate to admit it, but my brother is more of a LOTR nerd than I am. :)

Yes, nerd. 
Readers, anytime you see this font, that is my brother talking. The font I always use will be me. Doofus is letting me write the posts, but he is going to put his... er, intellectual comments in here and there. Got it? Good!

Let's plunge into the adventure!

Day 1: Favorite Book

My favorite LOTR book would have to be The Hobbit.  

Well, I like The Hobbit, The Fellowship, The Two Towers, and The Return of the King. So, all of them.

 Oh, cool! Pictures!

Yes, well, I love the whole epic adventure and the way Tolkien describes his characters and his, and his...

And his settings? Is that what you're looking for?


I'm leaving!

No, don't leave! I need you for this post! Do I have to drag you back in here?


Never mind. Allow me to continue. Where was I? Ah, yes! His characters and his settings.

I know you would use it! Hehehe!

Ahem! Well, would you care to tell us why you like The Hobbit and the LOTR trilogy?

Gulp. I think I left something in the oven.

No, you didn't! Tell us why you like those books.

Well, the stories are very interesting. And they are... good books?

OK, then. Do you think this post is long enough?

Are you asking me?

Yes, yes I am.

Then, no.

But I don't feel like writing anything else.

Invalid argument. You just did.

Oh bother! Never mind!

Thanks for taking the...

That's all for now, folks!  

... for taking the time to try and make sense of this odd post.
