nebroadwe: (Bear)
Long years ago (six, actually), [livejournal.com profile] camwyn took up hir keyboard and wrote THE ENTIRE SILMARILLION OF J. R. R. TOLKIEN IN ONE THOUSAND WORDS. It begins thus:
ILUVATAR: Ahem.
AINUR: Wow! Existence!
ILUVATAR: *blows pitch pipe* LA!
AINUR: LA LA LA!
ILUVATAR: LA LA!
AINUR: LA LA!
MELKOR: This sucks. BUM BUM BA DUM!
AINUR: Um. . . la?
ILUVATAR: Ahem. LA!
MELKOR: Boop bop-a-doo-bop!
ILUVATAR: LA, dammit.
MELKOR: Bwam bardle ningle boom.
AINUR: . . .
ILUVATAR: Right, you're out of the band.
MELKOR: Fine, I was leaving anyway.
And goes on from there. Share and enjoy.

Short take: (no spoilers)

"It is too short." -- J.R.R. Tolkien, Foreword, The Lord of the Rings (2nd ed.)

Long take: (spoilers ho! even if you have read the books)

If you haven't, now's your chance ... )

Short take (no spoilers):

Wow. Argh. Wow. Argh. Wow. Argh. Wow. Argh. Wow. Argh ...

Long take (spoilers ho, both for _The Two Towers_ and, prospectively, for Return of the King):

Read the books! )
