The Fellowship of the Fanfic Writers!
by Odeena Skywalker
Chapter 1: It begins…
Rumors travel fast around my house. I had no doubt that everyone would know all about the events of the previous night, starting with Legolas doing my homework in exchange for a decent fic and ending with the elf unexpectedly become my boyfriend. I knew that I was in for a lot of stares and stiffed giggles; however, I had no idea of what was coming to me…
The next morning, I woke up with a headache. Not a light one, mind you, but a terrible one that made me want to bang my head against the wall until I would knock myself out. Thankfully, Boromir had foreseen it, and therefore he popped in shortly after I woke up, with a glass of hot chocolate and an aspirin. A quarter of hour later, I was feeling better. I got out of bed, thanked Boromir and sent him his way; then, I got dressed, combed my hair (a thing which took out at least ten minutes, since my hair never stays the way I want it to), then prepared for school. As I was stuffing some notebooks in my rucksack, I caught a glimpse of the school bus pulling over in front of my house, and I rushed out. As I ran down the stairs, nearly tripping over Gollum in the process, I thought I heard some giggles, but I didn't pay any attention to them, as my mind was set on the bus alone.
After a particularly tough day at school (thankfully, Legolas's homework was OK - I even got an A in physics!), I eventually half-crawled out of the overcrowded school bus and up to the front door of my house. Two very excited hobbits were playing some sort of baseball on the lawn. When they saw me, they both gave a shriek of glee and rushed to me, nearly knocking me over.
"So, is it true?" Pippin asked breathlessly.
I leaned against the door with a sigh. "What's true?"
Merry giggled and elbowed Pip. Pip looked at me hopefully. "That you - and Legolas - y'know…"
I narrowed my eyes. "What about me and the elf?"
"Kissed!" Merry interjected anxiously.
"Did you?" Pip chimed happily.
My jaw dropped. The same moment, the door I was leaning against opened, and I fell through. Thank Heavens the carpet in the hall was soft. Immediately, a dozen different voices burst into fits of laughter.
"Yeah, hello to you, too", I shouted angrily, jumping up and waving my schoolbag around menacingly (I narrowly missed Pippin's head). Then I noticed something odd: more than a dozen of the guys were sitting on the floor on a bunch of colored cushions, holding clipboards and various writing instruments. I glared at them, an eyebrow flying up. "What are you guys up to…?"
Elrond, who was the only one sitting in an armchair, ceremoniously stood up. "Dear girl, welcome to the Fellowship of the Fanfic Writers."
I tilted my head to one side and looked at him through half-lidded eyes. "The - what?"
"Well, Faramir was just telling us about last night", Aragorn started, and I closed my eyes, waiting for the inevitable. "How you wrote all those fics and stuff", he went on, and I relaxed slightly. "So we thought - hell, why shouldn't we try it? By the way, that was a direct quote from Boromir. I don't use words like 'hell' in my sentences."
"Okay…" I drawled. "So what exactly are you writing, hmm?"
"Anything we feel like", a very excited Sam cut in. "For instance, I can write about my garden--"
"We haven't written anything yet", Legolas interrupted him. "We were just starting."
"Oh. Well, in that case", I said, "you don't mind if I join you, do you?"
A vibrating chorus of 'No's came as the reply. I chuckled, then I sat down on the nearest cushion - incidentally or not, in between Legolas and Haldir, the latter giving me a surprised look - and I took out a pen, a notebook and a bag of chips.
"On my mark", Elrond said. "You have fifteen minutes - begin."
At the same time, thirteen different stories began to take shape.
A/N: This story is a direct sequel to my other LOTR fanfic, Legolas and the Really Messed-Up Fanfic. There's much more evil stuff coming (insert maniac laughter here - BWAHAHA!), so stay tuned - and, of course, review! Here are the review answers for Chapter 8 of L&TRMF:
Samus: The alien landing site was Area 51… still, who says there isn't an Area 31 out there as well? ^_^ Oh, and you're reading my fics in the library? Tut… that could get you in trouble… Be careful not to laugh too loud, OK? ^_^
Lady Hael: Well, as long as you have your Dante, there's nothing to worry about! ^_^ And about the Trig Book of Doom… Good Lord, of course I want it! I've always wanted one of those! ^_^
Kaya: Really? Well, in that case I'd better run for my life :P Here's a suggestion: ask Haldir to join you. He's been meaning to get his revenge on me for not making him the main character of this story for ages. I'm sure he'll agree. :D
Stewardess of Gondor: Now you and Faramir be good in there… and be sure to get a flashlight and two tanks of oxygen, just in case you get stuck in… wherever the 'quiet, secluded place' is XD By the way, remember to feed the rest of the Fellowship at least three times a day (except for the hobbits, who need at least five good meals), and keep Gollum away from any fish tanks or ant farms you may have.
laegoleaf: To quote Celine Dion (with a small modification, of course), 'My fic will go on…' XD
Undomiel: Thanks! Yes, I think it was very sweet of Legolas to want to kiss me, too… *dreamy sigh* err, I mean - *mutters* dang, I broke another rule - NEVER fall in love with a fictional character. *loudly* But… I guess that this once it's OK to break it… *giggle*
ApocalypticPyro: Devoted fan…? Wow! Thanks! Well, that's one reason for which I didn't finish the story… and the reviewers sympathizing with the elf is the second ^_^
Lendlaer: Thank you! And Legolas says thanks for the kiss, too! ^_^
