Public, Sam A., Chay W.

I have done nothing but clean. Fuck, at least we took the truck and stayed at the Wynn for a few days, but that sand kicked the shit out of the RV, which means there is sand everywhere, and I cannot vacuum enough to get this shit out of the carpet, and the outside - I need a fucking pressure washer. Anyone got one of those?

At least the power is on and the air conditioning is working. What the Hell was that freak show?

Ideas, anyone? Bueller?

Back to cleaning.

How are you doing? Did you turn into a ball of sand too?

How about a massage later?

Are you holding up?

[Locked to Chetan]

Are you and yours okay out there?


The sand is becoming problematic.

[Filtered message to Frodo Baggins, Aragorn]

I have to say that this is a strange way of communicating with both of you, especially the two of you whom I read about as a child back in England. I've recently, um, how shall I put this? Acquired Samwise as a partner in my head. The girl he had previously...I believe she returned to her home country, from what he tells me. Anyway.

Samwise mentioned that you lot might be going on a quest soon. He seems particularly worried about it, understandably so from what I understand about what's going to happen soon in your world. I can ask for a holiday from work to make it easier for Samwise to shift back and forth between worlds easily enough, if you think it would assist both of you.

[locked to Samwise and Aragorn

Samwise -
I have taken the time to pen a note to your old Gaffer. Nob will take it to Buckland next week or the following one and have Uncle Rory send it on up to Hobbiton. That should give us the extra time that we need it. I have only _stretched_ the truth in a few places, and have left out the real reasons behind our journey southward.

Gaffer Gamgee, #5 BagShot Row, Hobbiton, The Shire. )

[In Sindarin]
I think we should leave the Inn seperately and meet up again somewhere on the Southern Road. I have procured Samwise and I, a reason and a wagon south. I trust in your knowledge of the road that you will find an out of the way spot in which to reconvene. But that would spare the questioning that would surely arise from the Breelanders if we three were seen leaving Bree together.

[After reading the journals for a number of days, seeing the varied responses and gauging his own first entry. The handwriting is tall and narrow with a heavy line in black ink.]

How long did it take for everyone to be assured that all of this wasn't simply something they were imagining or hallucinating?

[There's a pattern of lines and boxes, idle doodling as he thinks.]

It's strange writing to a piece of parchment and expecting a response. I keep pinching myself, but nothing's happened.

Isildur's Lamant

If only I hadn't picked it up.

I'm sorry, my sons, for this legacy I pass.
A tower of stone, can crumble like glass.
I picked it up not thinking the evil it kept.
And into my heart this evil has crept.

Throw it away, they advised, Elrond and Cirdan.
To keep it will destroy us, that was for certain.
But my father was dead and so was my brother.
This wield-gold I'll keep, for tis like no other.

Now this burden lies heavy on my heart.
I watch and worry over it, will a new evil start?
Am I really Mordor's foe, or do I just pass the cup?
I'm sorry, my sons.
If only.

I hadn't picked it up.

Public, Sam A.

I don't really want to go to any more of those parties. Everything worked out in the end, after getting out of that. I guess I learned something at least. I think that's what I'm supposed to say. I'd still take it all back if I could. No offense meant to anyone. I'm just ridiculously happy right where I am. Maybe I don't ruin everything I touch.

I called my mother, thinking I should go for a visit. Chay could come with me, but Mom would try to bleed him out of money. Fuck it, he's coming. We have some time before going back out to the mastodon site since it's too damn hot to breathe out there.

[Private to Sam A.]
How are you doing?

[As Harry D.]

Please tell me that this guy I'm time-sharing with isn't a result of some freaky ancient coin holding the spirit of a fallen angel. Because I've dealt with that once and thought I had it beat. I'd be disappointed if it snuck up on me without giving me a chance to deal with it.


I don't want to work today. The desert is really hot - no shit, right? I want to go do something fun. As much as I love digging around the Valley of Fire, I am thinking water, lake, something cool, minus dirt and sand.

All work, no play - you know what I mean?

[Public, anon.]

What to do when you want to try things that no one will understand?

i shouldn't i fucking

Hey. Still alive?

[ford c]

I had a weird fucking dream with you in it and I think it means we should definitely fuck sometime. I know you already said no but I'm just throwing it out there again.


I'm bored. Most embarrassing sex story, go. And don't tell me you threw up on some guy, everybody's heard that one. Dig deep, people.

Frodo, Sam

Frodo and Sam,

I could not find Legolas.

It was this time in our world that Gandalf sent me on an errand. I nearly forgot, but as he is not here, he could not do so again. I did not have time there to search all the places that I wished, but there is time yet to do so and I will make use of it.

It will take me far from the Shire, but as my key continues to open at Bree, I can return. If there is any sign of the enemy, no matter how small, you must tell me.

I've never quite understood some of the phrases that you humans use. Such as 'pain in the ass'. Is the person literally being a pain in your ass? Perhaps kicking it, or even biting it? No? Then might it be simpler and easy to understand if you said precisely how you feel instead of using these complicated turns of phrase?

This is why I believe you humans have problems communicating. If you spoke more literally, there would be less confusion, and perhaps, less problems.

In other news, can anyone explain to me why the birds are angry? And why the pigs are taking their homes? I do not understand this game.

[public, Donovan sibs]


A few questions.

1) Car or bike? Which one do you think might be better in this area? Because I'm kind of digging this, but I'm not sure.

2) I have spent the last few Friday nights in. I'm going out this Friday. Anyone want to join me? Plans are up in the air.

3) Anyone else enjoying this entire 'living vicariously through your other half' thing? Because, there are days when I wish I was young and in school again, but only for the good parts.

[Locked to the Donovan siblings]

Dinner? Just for us? It's been a long time since we've all been in one place at the same time.

Wakan Tanka, Great Mystery,
teach me how to trust
my heart,
my mind,
my intuition,
my inner knowing,
the senses of my body,
the blessings of my spirit.
Teach me to trust these things
so that I may enter my Sacred Space
and love beyond my fear,
and thus Walk in Balance
with the passing of each glorious Sun.

I'm thinking about getting a bird feeder. (I can hear you laughing, W)

Every morning for the past week, I've had a cardinal and a blue jay joining me for my morning coffee at the fire pit. They watch me, I watch them, they hang around for a few minutes and then fly off. I think even Spot likes them.

[As "Beast". In his usual fine printed letters.]

It will be an early spring.



I've had enough of job interviews for the moment. I've been in Vegas way too long not to know where the most fun places are. I need some suggestions on what to do to entertain myself. I learn best by example, so it'd be better if you just told me what you yourself like to do around here.

Perhaps with pictures or smoke signals or bursting into song. Actually, no smoke signals. Where there's smoke, there's fire and I'm not explaining to your insurance company that you set your place ablaze trying to send me a smoke signal when the internet exists. They won't pay out, dudes. It's not worth it.

So, anyone? Anyone? Bueller?


Public, Sam and Frodo

[Written in Tengwar]

The Sundering Seas between them lay,
And yet at last they met once more,
And long ago they passed away
In the forest singing sorrowless.

[Private to Frodo and Sam]

I am unable to find Legolas.

For Chessie M

For M'lady Goldberry Chessie.. A delivery truck arrives and only a simple note is attached to the crate, along with a phone number for a gentleman specializing in piano restorations.

Nobody should be without music for very long. Jonathan has completed the tuneup and said that if you find a song in her he would continue the restoration of her. He has my billing information. He said that he is also willing to see if he can repair yours.
