Dialogue 1: Aragorn and Legolas in Rivendell!

"You seem troubled, my friend."

"You seem curious."

"Call it my curse."

"I have."

"All right. Now that we have established my natural state of curiosity, perhaps you can reveal what's plagueing you?"

"How long have we been friends now?"

"That either means that it has something to do with us or that you are saying something completely irrelevant in an attempt to confuse me."

"If it's the latter, is it working?"

"No."

"Bugger. Then, no to the second one."

sighs and tries to be patient "Legolas. If you don't want to talk about it, just say so."

"Aragorn... I don't want to talk about it."

"All right, then we won't! So what's bothering you?"

"...Nothing."

"You lie!"

"...No. Seriously. No."

"Oh. So you're withdrawn, sullen, and there's completely unnecessary tears in your eyes for no reason?"

"...Yes?"

"Well then why didn't you just say so?"

"Aragorn... I don't want to talk about it."

"Wait...now I'm confused. I thought there was nothing to talk about. You mean you just don't want to talk to me? Did I do something! IT'S ME, ISN'T IT?"

shifty eyes "IS IT? WHAT? WHY ARE WE YELLING? NO."

"I knew it. You said you didn't take the acorn heist seriously, and now I see that it was all a lie."

"...No."

"Oh. Well then..."

"Aragorn?"

"I have problems too."

"Isn't there some sort of... club we could join? Maybe... a C2 community that we could talk about problems in?"

"...No."

"Bugger."

"We should start an advice column!"

"...What? 'We' as in... us? Have you heard any... snapping sounds lately?"

"Hi Legolas. How are you."

"I'm fine! WHY DOES EVERYONE ALWAYS THINK I'M ABOUT TO DIE? I'M FINE, REALLY. IT'S NOT LIKE I'M TORTURED INSIDE OR ANYTHING, WHY WOULD YOU ASK THAT?... I'm fine. How are you?

"I'm upbeat and neato. And mate, if I had wanted to ask you that, I would've said 'Hi Legolas. Are you about to die or tortured inside?' Duh."

"Oh. Well..."

"We are so boring. Who would be entertained by our dialogues?"

"What makes you say that? It's not like people actually eavesdrop and write down what we say or anything. You're paranoid, mate."

"Paranoid rhymes with lemonade."

"...YEAH, IT DOES! Cool."

"It's like a lemonoid."

"You're like a lemonoid."

"Your face is like a lemonoid."

"Right, well. I have to go get captured and tortured by Orcs or something. Good bye."

"'Course you do. AND I'M COMING WITH YOU!"

"...No."

"It's something I did, isn't it."
