I have decided that this is going to be another story. I am going to leave
the point of the fellowship's last thoughts and start a new story. It will
still contain a few of the other chapters from the story Mornie Utulie (
darkness has come ) but it will basically just be a story, with no ~POVs~.
I also am putting your characters THAT I will eventually receive ( if u do
send ur characters) into this story. I would be very grateful about this.
And since NOBODY has or had any questions that they want the fellowship to
ask Neried, I will think up some of my one up which is going to be kinda
hard, but I'll live.
I would be glad if u ppl review and flames ( such as Ellen
lavery's) will be squashed and thrown back at them. (hopefully hitting them
where it hurts.) Reviews will be used to make sure that hobbits get their
second breakfast, which will be very big. And HUGZ for everyone who reviews
and has reviewed for my last story!! That would be :Hilzarie Potter, Aurora
Riddle, Fool of a Took, Trouble, Spastic-Australian, Enkanowen, MarigoldG,
Reader, Ravens Quill, Anon, Corde, Not telling! :p, Niomoe32, Nicole
strikes Back, Pilot3001, Nazz, Vera Home, Xena, Lothlorien, LiLMissMe,
Masquerade and Legolas' biggest Fan!!!!!!!!! Hugz for all of
you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And now on with the story!
Disclaimer: I own none of the characters except the elements!!!!
As the fellowship slowly went a figure was silently watching them from a
dark corner. The figure had been watching them ever since they were thrown
in the cage until the day they died. Once they all left their body, the
figure slowly crept out of the dark.
It was a girl, but not a human, elf, dwarf, witch or hobbit. She was a
mysterious creature. Her hair was blue as the sky and so where eyes. Her
skin was fair, and she wore a blue short dress almost like a tunic that was
too long with slits at the bottom. On her feet she wore blue boots that
came just above her ankles. You could almost say she was a faerie.**
She made sure the coast was clear, as she continued to approach the cage.
When she got there she sniffed the air. She could smell the scent of death
all around her, but these were times of darkness and everywhere you went
the smell of death was there.
She went to approach the statue of the hobbits. She gently touched them.
She could tell that they were dead. The statue had started to crumble. She
quickly and cautiously backed away. She stayed crouched near the ground for
a moment or two. She had to tell the others. She quickly ran up the stairs
ever so quietly. Quieter than an elf could ever. She was happy to be out of
that room. She made her way through the halls and outside unnoticed, and
started her journey to the tallest mountain.
She reached the mountain in a day and a bit. Now came the hard part.
Going up the mountain. Carefully she made her way up not trying to make the
same mistake as the last.
She could have gone around the mountain but it would take too long and
was dangerous. To get to the top safely or as safe as you could you would
have to go straight up.
In a few hours she reached the top. There on top of the mountain was a
castle hidden by clouds. She quickly ran to it.
She barged into the castle quickly looking for someone. Actually she was
looking for the three others like her. The most mysterious beings in all of
They were The Elements. Earth, Air, Fire and Water.
The girl who was called Neried the Element Water rushed into the Royal
Halls only to find the three she was looking for. There was Krezahian the
Element Earth sitting on his throne along with Psellia the Element Air
sitting on his right and Rhazur the Element Fire sitting on his left. All
were dressed according to their elements.
As Neried approached Krezahian, she stopped in front of him and the
others and simply said, " They are gone."
Krezahian frowned and said, " As I expected."
"What do we do now?" asked Rhazur.
"Nothing at the moment, except you and Neried. I want you to retrieve the
bodies. I do not want you traveling on foot. Go to the library and find the
faerie dust that was given by the royal faeires and use it to transport
"Yes." Neried and Rhazur said together.
Both left the Royal Halls.
In the library all that could be heard was " Where is it?" Neried was
getting annoyed that Dantonie the keeper of magic had rearranged things
again. Neried yelled again " Where is… oh, nevermind I found it!"
She walked over to where Rhazur was, who was also relieved that Neried had
found it. " If Dantonie rearranges anything else I am going to make sure
she doesn't ever get to touch something in here ever again." Said Rhazur.
"Quit whining Rhazur, we don't have all eternity do we? Now come on."
Neried said back. A sprinkle of the dust and a few words and they were
When they got there they checked to make sure no one was coming. Nothing
else was in the room except the bodies and the crumbled stone hobbits.
Neried sort of let out a yuck sound. Rhazur quickly said, "Let's just get
this over and done with. You get the bodies out of the cage, and bring them
over here, while I get all the pieces of the hobbits."
Neried walked over to the cage muttering. She easily broke the barrier
spell on the cage and opened it. One by one she dragged each body out,
having a little trouble with Gimli. Once they were all out, Rhazur had a
pile of crumbled stones in a pile. "We're done here now let's go." He said.
In a swift motion the dust landed on everyone, dead and alive, and with a
few words they all disappeared.
When they were back in the library Neried ran back to Krezahian to see what
he wanted to do with the bodies.
" Bring them to the temple, and no questions. Psellia and I will be there
Neried ran back to Rhazur thinking about how much trouble this was. Having
to bring the bodies from the cage to the library was one thing, but
bringing them to the other side of the palace was enough. So dragging the
bodies one by one, except Gimli who need both of them to drag, they brought
them ever so carefully trying not the think of what Krezahian would do if
something happened to the bodies, to the temple.
Neried and Rhazur had just finished bringing the bodies into the temple.
"What do we do now Krezahian." Psellia asked curiously. " First I want the
bodies on the table and I need to talk to you three after." He answered
back. So all three of them did what they were told and after that went to
" I see that you have only brought back seven bodies. But we know of the
one that fell at Amon Hen, but where is the one that was said to be the
ring-bearer?" questioned Krezahian. Neried and Rhazur looked at each other
questioning each other mentally about if they saw any other body in the
room. Finally Psellia broke the silence and said, " Surly the body must be
" We are not looking for the ring-bearer alone, we also must have the one
who fell at Amon Hen as well. Without all them they are lost. Broken. I
have heard the earth say of a boat that floated into the Sea into the Gray
Havens. You know of what I ask you to do, but I will not have you do it,
for it is a hard task one in which only I can do right now. I will leave
you to claim this missing one. Neried I want to see what you can find out
about the so-called ring-bearer and where its body might be. Rhazur I want
you to tend to the bodies, and Psellia I leave you now to do what you know
you must do, while I am gone"
Quickly Krezahian left. The other three elements stood there till Psellia
gave the command for them to do their assigned jobs. Neried and Rhazur
spilt up at the doors each going their way.
Neried started to head out to the Orcs camps that were set about. Every now
and then she would have a vision of the place she past. It was of the
fellowship. Wherever the fellowship had been Neried was sure to have a
vision. Some were of happy moments and some of war and battle. But she
couldn't let these visions distract her. She wondered about how she was
going to find some answers as to what happened to the body of the ring-
bearer, but being an element she did have her ways. She knew that the
creatures needed water even if they are like the way they are. She could
somehow poison the water to the servants of Sauron and maybe they would
spill out information. She thought that, that was the way to go. She headed
over to the closest stream where not too far done the stream was a camp.
She touched the water and when she did the water surrounding changed colour
but quickly changed back. Now all she had to do was wait for the
information to come out.
The poison didn't take affect right away, which annoyed Neried. After a few
days after that rumors got to Neried. They were that the dark lord had
disposed of the body, another rumor was that the body was in the dark
lord's tower. So many rumors came to Neried that she didn't know what to
believe. So many ways to see if they were true but so little time. She had
to act fast. She decided that she would pick the most obvious places and
check there, starting with the dark tower of the dark lord. It gave her the
creeps just looking at it. She knew that she had to leave right now. Time
would not be kind to her. So she started quickly walk through the stream
where it was shallow and hidden till she came to the waterway of the tower.
She climbed up into it easily. The tunnel went on for a while but I came to
an end in a matter of minutes. Once she got she knew she had to find the
corpse that which was rotting. So all she had to do was follow the
disgusting smell of rotting corpses. She checked all of the cells and
rooms. No luck. Maybe the corpse was in one of the torture chambers being
that the smell of the corpse would torture anyone.
"Perfect!" she exclaimed. "Just what I was looking for, a corpse with no
throat. Well at least it was a quick death." She said solemnly and
sarcastically. She knew that she couldn't leave his throat open just like
that so she took a piece of cloth and wrapped it around his neck, making
sure it would hold. It wasn't has hard as she thought it would be to carry
the hobbit out of the tower. She just took her same route as she came in
but just as she was about to make it outside a group of Orcs spotted her
and were on her trail like flies to dead animal. She ran as fast as she
could out into the stream with arrows flying at her. One just skinned her,
but that didn't stop her. She would have to cross the stream so she started
and being the element water she commanded the water to make a wall till she
was safe. The water did, as it was commanded and then when she was 200
meters away. The water resigned to normal. And so Neried and the body of
Frodo made there way back to the palace in the sky. Krezahian didn't say if
he wanted the body or not but my senses tell me to take it for other
reasons, Neried thought to herself.
Her journey was slower because of the body. No matter how fast she ran
she would never reach the palace in two days, or even three. Time was
unknown and uncertain. Time never seemed to be kind. It certainly proved
that for the fellowship. It was just a matter of time before they would
fall. Why didn't anything notice that? Neried looked at this poor creature.
It had tried so hard. It was so close to its goal, and everything was taken
away from it. Its friends, home, kindness, innocence, and its… LIFE. No
thing in this world deserved this, especially this little one. Neried could
never show what she felt inside. That was weakness. She was not created to
Finally after four days of carrying the corpse through the country she
reached home. The body was still preserved but was going slowly. Whatever
Krezahian wanted to do, would have to be done quickly. When she arrived
there, she first noticed that Krezahian had found the body he was searching
for. Neried looked at it. It looked so peaceful just lying there. A hint of
pride was on its face. Neried put the body on the table beside the rest.
She waited for Krezahian to announce what they were going to do. Finally
after a brief moment of silence he spoke. " You know what is happening in
Middle-Earth. It is something we cannot stop."
" What are you trying to say. That there is no way of stopping the dark
lord from doing what he is doing?'' raged Rhazur.
" Control yourself. There is little hope that this evil can be undone but I
believe our hop lies in front of us." Replied Krezahian.
" So you are saying that this fellowship that once tried to defeat the dark
lord is our only hope?" questioned Neried
" Yes, but you see that they are dead." Psellia pointed out.
" Yes, yes I am getting to that, now if you let me finish I will tell you."
Krezahian said with a hint of frustration in his voice.
" Continue then," said Psellia.
" As I was going to say, there is only one possible way to help them. It
risks everything. We must give up our meaning and gift. I will give my gift
of psychical and stability for they will need it."
" I will give my gift of thought and inspiration to help them." Added
" I will give my gift of strength and rage for their heart's will need it."
" And I will give my gift of life and health for it is what they shall have
once again." Ended Neried.
" So it has been done. I expect you; Neried will guide this fellowship.
Show them your wisdom and strength. We will come for you in the end no
matter what it may be. Let us go." Krezahian said.
So it was the that three elements faded, leaving a glowing sphere which
went to Neried who took off her pendant so that the glowing spheres went
inside it. The smell of death was no more. The life of the fellowship was
Slowly the fellowship began to stir. Frodo was the frist to open his eyes,
followed by the others. He sat up and noticed that he wasn't in danger, or
it didn't seem like it at least. He put his hands to his thoart and was
surprised that it wasn't torn or bleeding. He laughed at this quietly. He
looked around. Everybody else was there and sure enough they were all
alive. Sam had taken notice that Frodo was alive and jumped off the table
without a second thought and ran to his master yelling, " Mr. Frodo, Mr.
Frodo!!!!!!!" Frodo was glad to see him again and got off the table, where
he was tightly embraced by Sam. The rest of the fellowship took notice that
he was alive, except for Boromir who just stood there. Everyone was glad to
Legolas felt a presence which he hadn't felted in a while. He turned and
saw Boromir and called out his name. Aragorn, Gimli, abd the rest turned
around and laid eyes on Boromir. Joy flooded through the fellowship, as the
went to welcome there lost friend. They were all so happy, for it had been
along time since everybody was together that they did not take notice of
the other figure in the room. Neried just stood there seeing this reuniting
of the fellowship. It wasn't till she said something that the fellowship
jumped, and turned to her.
" I do not mean to interupt, for I know that this is a happy moment,
but it can not stay." Said Neried. They all starred in wonder at the girl
who stood in front of them, till Gandalf spoke, " I also agree but, I have
one question right now, and it would be the first question anyone would
ask. Who are you?"
" I am Neried of the Elements."
" I have heard of such beings, but they were thought to be a myth like some
of the other first creatures of Middle-Earth" said Gandalf.
" Well I am here, which makes me no myth. Don't you agree?" Neried replied.
" Yes, yes" said Gandalf.
" I don't mean to interupt, Lady Neried, but I think we would all like to
know how we can be possibly be here, seeing that we died." Questioned
" A question I thought you would ask, Prince Legolas. You are not dead but
very much alive. You were dead for a period of time, but the other elements
and I manged to bring you back. I am here to be your guide even if I will
not be much help, except guiding you."
"What do you mean guide?" asked Aragorn.
" Let me tell you why all of you are alive again. You are here to finish
what you were suppose to finish."
" You mean that we are here to destroy the ring, which is by far lost to
us, seeing that the Dark Lord Sauron has claimed it!" yelled a fierce
" Yes that is why, and do not unleash your anger out on me, for this was
not my idea. You will set out as soon as you all have replenished, and rest
whixh I think will help greatly for you are all weary!" Neried replied.
"Well, I agree with Gimli that our unfinshed business is quite hopeless,
but seeing how we are here, there must be a way, and I am guessing that we
will have to find overcome ourselves, but I also agree with the thought of
resting." Said Aragorn. " Then if you all will follow me, I will show you
to where you all can refresh yourselves." Said Neried. " Okay, just one
question, do you have any mushrooms. It as been so long since I have had."
Pippin asked, over excited with thought of being alive. Everyone turned to
him, and Gandalf said, " I will say it again, you are a Fool of a Took,
who is always thinking with his stomach." Everybody laughed at this remark.
As the fellowship walked down the halls, their minds filled with
questions. They were all troubled about the ring, and why they were alive
again, but more importantly how? Aragorn, who had to many thoughts on his
mind to be overjoyed about being alive spoke, " How can it be that we are
alive and well?"
" Yes, I would also like to know how we are alive, and what source of magic
was used, for it is the only possible way I can see that we are here,"
asked Gandalf. " All will be answered later." Neried simply replied.
Grumbles could be heard from Gimli for it was obvious that he wanted
answers. Legolas turned to his friend and said, " Patience dwarf for it is
the only way questions will be answered." Gimli grumbled some words, and
muffled muttered words that Legolas could barely make out, but he was
pretty sure Gimli said "crazy elf." Legolas smiled at this. How long it had
been since he heard these words.
The hobbits on the other hand were chatting ever so quietly about how
good it was to have Boromir around again, but they spoke little of this for
they also were concerned about things. Even Pippin who was surprisingly not
talking about food for once was concerned with this matter.
Boromir was thinking about his last battle that was concurred by his
friends. He was still in deep misery and would not look at the ring-bearer
at all for it hurt him inside, for he thought it was him who had caused
Frodo so much pain. When he had tried to steal the ring, the over powering
darkness the blinded him, and he could not fight it, till Frodo had escaped
his grasp, and he fell to the floor. It was then he realized that the
darkness had grown inside him quickly like a burning ember that had burst
into flames. He held back tears even though they tired to escape.
Aragorn had many questions that he knew were unanswered. He was
concerned with curiosity about who this being was, and he deeply thought
about his beloved Arwen. How long had it been since he last saw her
beautiful face? Was everybody safe? He didn't know what was happening all
around Middle-Earth, thought he feared for the lives of the beings.
After the fellowship was clean and replenished, they were taken to a
fairly big room. There were chairs surrounding a circular table. The
fellowship took their seats, while Neried on the other hand did not. She
stood standing. After they were all comfortable as possible. She spoke. " I
know there are many questions, you all wish me to answer. I will answer all
I can." Gandalf was the first to speak. " I will ask this question that
everyone here wishes to know. How can it be that we are alive again?"
Neried said," I knew you would say that. You are all alive again to destroy
the one ring. I know what you are all thinking. That it is difficult and
impossible to retrieve the ring from the Dark Lord. Difficult yes,
impossible no." But how can that be" cried Sam. " It would be impossible
for any other, but not for you nine." Answered Neried. " What do you mean
my that?" asked Legolas. " I have looked into the souls of the other
creatures strong enough as you nine, but they are all weak. Greed is heavy
in their hearts. They do not have they will power to withstand it." Neried
said. " If that is possible then why am I here." Asked Boromir quietly. "
You were pricked by the sword that Isildur used to defeat the Dark Lord.
The tip contained the Dark Lord's blood on it and when it mixed with your
blood its evil flowed within you. Your will to fight the will of the ring
was strong, but with the evil flowing within your blood, you fell." Silence
fell in the room. Everybody was thinking or was taking in what was just
told to them.
"How can you know that, and a child at that!?" Boromir said with fear and
frustration in his voice. " I am no child. Appearances can be deceiving.
Do not speak of things that you do not know of." Neried said already
starting to dislike this mortal.
Aragorn who had been paying attention the least, ask the question that had
been bothering him for very long,. " What has happened to the rest of
Middle-Earth, to our friends and loved ones." Everyone knew he was mostly
talking about Arwen, but they also wanted to know what had happened to the
others. There was a great pause from Neried. She didn't want to tell them
but she had to. Finally she spoke up.
" Most are slaves. Most of the elves have sailed West, there are a few
Dwarves left but they are hidden in underground, most of the race of Men
are slaves to Sauron, but some remain. The Hobbits in the Shire, Hobbiton,
and the few that were in Bree have disappeared, but have not left Middle-
Earth, for I have not felt it."
Everyone was silent for a moment but Aragorn broke the silence, " What
has come to my dear Arwen? Tell me she has not parished! Tell me please!!"
The fellowship knew he would be heart broken if he did not find out.
Neried answered " Alas, she has not parished, nor sailed West. She
remains safe with the other elves that have not left, which includes your
father and brothers Legolas. They too have not sailed for they would not
leave till you returned. For some reason they knew you would not leave this
world so easily."
Aragorn and Legolas were shocked. They were filled with joy and
happiness. It was clearly visible to see the tears streaking down Aragorn's
face, as well as the tear-filled eyes Legolas had even though he shed none.
Neried looked at the worried expressions on Gimli's and the Hobbits faces.
She did not know of their friends and families that were alive but she knew
of Frodo's uncle Bilbo and knew that he was also with the elves. Frodo saw
the look on her face and knew what she was saying to him.
Everyone had more questions to ask and Neried excepted them. Gimli again
brought up the subject of the Ring. What were they suppose to do with it?
And how can their souls be strong and pure enough to withstand its powers?
And how were they ALIVE AGAIN?????
Neried had told them the whole story of how she watched the fellowship
sit in the cage, wanting to help them but couldn't. She told them of how
she brought them here. Frodo gulped when she told them of how she found
Frodo and retrieved his body.
Gandalf was amazed by her power to summon a spell similar to the one
Elrond had cast on the river near Rivendell, to stop evil from entering. He
wondered what the world was like now. Everything destroyed and filled with
darkness and evil. For even Gandalf did not know what would happen.
When most of the questions had been answered Neried bid them that they
rest awhile, even though she knew this was impossible. The fellowship left
and went into some sort of lounge or common room. There they talked as a
full fellowship for the first long in many months.
