LOTR Around The World Modern Trip by admin
*Disclaimer Note: You know the drill. I donÂ’t own any LOTR characters or any of the locations mentioned in this story, etcÂ…Â….*
First off, I would like to thank everyone who submitted nice reviews.
Second of all, why donÂ’t most of you people review!?
Third of all, here is part 2 of the wacky trip. 🙂
Day 1: The Flight to Cape Town, South Africa.
With Aragorn and Arwen being in charge of the trip, they got to book the aeroplane tickets. The groups were as followed: Group 1-Aragorn, Arwen and Frodo, Group 2- Faramir, Boromir and Eowyn, Group 3-Merry, Pippin and Sam, and Group 4-Gimli, Legolas, Gandalf and Eomer. Frodo was with Aragorn and Arwen in case Boromir tried anything. With planes having rows of three and four seats, it just makes life a lot easier. Anyway, on with the story. When they got to the airport and got their tickets sorted out, they ran into a bit of trouble by the security metal detectors when it was FrodoÂ’s turn. He was the last to go through and the others were getting slightly impatient. When the security Ranger Radagast the Brown (an old friend of AragornÂ’s from the book), asked Frodo to remove any loose change, swords, daggers, arrowheads, keys or jewelry, Frodo had a mild freak out and was convinced that Radagast was working for Sauron and was after the One Ring. After a lot of reassuring from Aragorn and Gandalf, Frodo finally calmed down, removed the Ring ands walked through the metal detectors and got the Ring back. Aragorn had to apologize quite a few times before Radagast forgave him for the embarrassment FrodoÂ’s freak out had caused him. They then moved onto the boarding area where Aragorn was already exhausted. They boarded the plane. Everyone found their seats alright and the seating order was like this: Group 1 followed by Group 2 followed by Group 3. In line with Group 1 was Group 4 in the middle section where the four seats were. Most of the flight Sam, Merry, Pippin, Gandalf, Eomer and Aragorn slept. Arwen and Eowyn watched each other because of Aragorn. Frodo had become paranoid after he had the task of destroying the One Ring so he was watching everyone very carefully. Legolas and Gimli were busy talking about their favourite killing techniques. A few hours later, everyone heard a blood curdling screech coming from the direction of PippinÂ’s chair. Everyone looked in that direction and saw Merry and Sam trying to calm down Pippin.
Â“DonÂ’t worry, Pippin. EverythingÂ’s going to be alright,Â” Merry said trying his hardest to calm Pippin down.
Â“Yeah, Mr Pippin. What he said,Â” Sam said.
Â“How can you be sure?Â” Pippin asked through little sniffs.
Â“What happened?Â” asked Faramir sounding very concerned.
Â“Is he okay?Â” asked Boromir, sounding almost as concerned as his brother.
Â“Pippin just discovered there is no second breakfast on the plane,Â” said Merry answering FaramirÂ’s question.
Everyone else went back to what they were doing.
Â“You mean Pippin only found out now that they only serve three meals on the plane?Â” Eowyn asked surprised.
Â“Only THREE meals?! How will we survive?!?!Â” yelled the three hobbits as they began to cry hysterically.
Â“Oops,Â” Eowyn said.
Everyone glares at Eowyn while Faramir and Boromir try to calm down the hysterical hobbits. Aragorn quickly got up and ran towards the air hostessÂ’s cabin to ask her to take food to the hysterical hobbits. When the food arrived, the three hobbits immediately stopped crying and helped themselves to their food. The plane was again peaceful until Frodo realized he was hungry and he started to get hysterical. Aragorn had to get up once again to ask the air hostess to bring more food for Frodo. As soon as Frodo got his food he went quiet and ate his food while watching everyone closely. The rest of the flight was quite peaceful until the landing. The four hobbits, who had never been on a plane before, were once again going hysterical. Merry, Pippin and Sam were hugging each other and praying through cries and sniffs and small squeaks of terror. Frodo, on the other hand, was going completely nuts.
Â“WeÂ’re all going to die!!!!!! Someone please save us!!!!!!! Oh no! IÂ’m dying!Â” Frodo screamed at the top of his lungs while he was having a slight melt-down.
Everyone else was quite calm and were acting as if this happened on a daily basis. Aragorn and Arwen were trying their hardest to calm Frodo down. Faramir, Boromir and Eowyn were trying their hardest to calm the other three hobbits down. By the time the plane had come to a complete stop, the hobbits had passed out from fear. When the plane had landed it was late at night, around 23.00. Aragorn, Faramir, Boromir and Eomer each took a hobbit and carried them to where they could get their bags. They got bag trolleys and got all their bags and put them on the trolleys along with the hobbits. They got to their hotel rooms at around about 23.45. Each room was a family room with four beds. Merry, Pippin, Aragorn and Arwen in Room 1. Frodo, Sam, Eowyn and Faramir in Room 2. Legolas, Gimli, Eomer and Boromir in Room 3. And Gandalf got his own room because he snored even louder than Gimli which everyone thought was impossible. And the four hobbits werenÂ’t allowed their own room because who knows how much trouble the four of them could get into together.
Day 2: The trip up Table Mountain.
By the time the hobbits woke up, it was the next morning (07.00). They all went down stairs for breakfast. When they all saw what was for breakfast, the hobbits let out a squeak of joy and happiness because for breakfast, it was a buffet. The hobbits thought they were in heaven. They could have as many courses as they wanted, just as long as they finished eating at 10.00. They all finished eating at 09.30, so they decided to go and get the car that Aragorn rented. He rented a mini bus that could hold seventeen people. Once they got the car, they started to drive to the base of Table Mountain. Aragorn was the driver and Arwen was in the passenger seat reading out a tour book when they passed a certain area. The hobbits took up the back seats and Â“ooohingÂ” and Â“aaahingÂ” could be heard from them along with squeaks of fascination. They got to the parking at the base of Table Mountain, they parked the car and went to buy the tickets so they could use the cable car to get to the top. While Arwen and Eowyn were busy buying the tickets, the others had to keep a close eye on the hobbits just in case they decided to wander off which they did whenever they had the chance. After what happened at the Rohan store, the others had to keep an especially close eye on them. A few minutes later Eowyn and Arwen returned with the tickets.
Â“Wow. That was fast,Â” Gandalf said looking slightly surprised.
Â“The ticket guy said todayÂ’s a slow day seeing as children have to go to school and their parents have to go to work,Â” Eowyn said.
Â“He also said we need to be down by 16.30. ThatÂ’s when the last cable car goes down on Tuesdays.Â” Arwen added.
Â“How long is the mountain open for on a normal day?Â” Gimli asked slightly puzzled.
Â“Till 19.00 in summer, 18.00 in winter,Â” Eowyn answered GimliÂ’s question.
Â“WhatÂ’s the time now?Â” Eomer asked.
Â“Judging by the position of the sun, I would say it is aboutÂ…Â….Â” Aragorn said looking at the sun.
Â“11.00.Â” Pippin said finishing AragornÂ’s sentence.
Â“How on Middle-Earth did you know that, Pip?Â” Merry asked sounding highly confused and surprised.
Â“Yeah. Only Rangers know how to tell the time by looking at the sun.Â” Aragorn said sounding just as confused and surprised as Merry.
Â“I just looked at my watch,Â” Pippin said as casually as ever.
Everyone else looked at each other quite impressed that Pippin knew how to tell the time as well as looking at his watch but they were also slightly jealous because they then remembered about their watches. They made their way to the cable car and went up the mountain. They walked around for an hour, had lunch (or luncheon for the hobbits), walked around for another two hours, had afternoon tea (or at least the hobbits did) and then made their way back down the mountain. They were all exhausted except for the hobbits seeing as they were the cause for the exhaustion. Merry and Pippin decided to play a game of seeing who could break the most rules. The final score was Merry: 6, Pippin: 16. Eomer, Faramir, Boromir and Gandalf were chasing after them trying to stop them and apologizing for the trouble they were causing. Frodo ran around and around and around the Mountain convinced everyone around him worked for Sauron and were trying to get the Ring. Aragorn, Arwen, Eowyn and Legolas were chasing after him. Sam and Gimli were sitting in the restaurant drinking and eating because there was food and drink to be had. They got back to the hotel at about 17.00 because of the traffic. Aragorn and the four hobbits were the only ones still awake. Aragorn was driving and the four hobbits were playing Â“sweet and sourÂ” with the very moody people coming home from work. Most of them didnÂ’t wave back (surprise, surprise) and just gave the hobbits a look, then drove past Aragorn and gave him a look. They got back to their hotel rooms and just relaxed till supper. They went down to supper and on their way back to their rooms, Legolas had received a few letters. Most were pink and had perfume sprayed all over them. Everyone except Eowyn and Arwen looked completely disgusted by the smell. They got back up to their rooms, Legolas read his letters and by 21.00 everyone was asleep. The only one who was not sleeping well was Legolas after he read those letters.
Who were the letters from? (Dum, Dum, duuuuuuuh)
Would Legolas be happy with them?
Would you answer my first question about why you donÂ’t review by submitting a review to answer the question so by that I would be getting you to submit a review?
Is my previous question at all confusing? (The answer would probably be yes)
And last but not least, would some of you readers melt if you submit a review?
Stay tuned to find out and please, please, please R&R. I NEED to know what you think!
