Author has written 3 stories for Silmarillion, and Myst/Riven.
Frodo: "Go back, Sam! I'm going to Mordor alone."
Sam: "Of course you are. And I'm coming with you!"
Frodo: "I can't do this, Sam."
Sam: "I know. It's all wrong. By rights we shouldn't even be here. But we are. It's like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo, the ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger they were. 'Cause sometimes you didn't want to know the end because how could the end be happy? How can the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened? But in the end it's only a passing thing. A shadow even darkness must pass. A new day will come and when the sun shines it will shine out the clearer. Those were the stories that stayed with you, that meant something even if you were to small to understand why. But I think Mr. Frodo, I do understand. I know now. Folks in those stories had lots of chances in turning back only they didn't. They kept going because they were holding onto to something."
Frodo: "What are we holding onto, Sam?"
Sam: "That there's some good left in this world, Mr. Frodo, and it's worth fighting for."
Frodo: "It's a pity Bilbo didn't kill him when he had the chance!"
Gandalf: "Pity? It was pity that stayed Bilbo's hand! Many that live deserve death and many that die deserves life. Can you give it to them? Then do not be to quick to deal out death in judgement for even the very wise cannot see all ends."
Pippin: "Merry! Merry, it's me. It's Pippin."
Merry: "I knew you'd find me. Are you going to leave me again?"
Pippin: "No Merry, I'm going to watch over you."
Gimli: "I never thought I'd die standing side by side with an elf."
Legolas: "How about side by side with a friend?"
Gimli: "Aye, I can do that."
Sam: "What are you doing? Sneaking off are we?"
Gollum: "Sneaking? Sneaking!? Good Smeagol shows them secret back ways that no one else knows about and they say sneaking? Fat hobbit always so polite, oh yes..."
Sam: "All right, all right! You just startled me, is all. What were you doing anyways?"
Those excellent LotR fan fiction writers need to keep writing.
Mostly, Beth, I mean you.
