The Very Secret Diary of Aragorn, Son of Arathorn, Part II
THE VERY SECRET DIARY OF ARAGORN, SON OF ARATHORN, PART II
By Cassie Claire
Ran forty miles across Rohan. No squirrels to eat. Gimli looking about roasting size. Have been told dwarf tastes like chicken. Still not King.
Stubble update: satisfactory.
Ran into army of Rohirrim. Asked Eomer if he knew where hobbits were. Got v. cagey answer. Perhaps Eomer still mad about that last bender I went on where I painted rude words in Elvish all over his horse. Decided not to mention he has obviously copied hairstyle from Legolas. He wouldn’t be giving me this attitude if I were King.
Once you’ve seen one pile of smoking dead Orcs, you’ve seen ’em all. That’s all I’m sayin’.
Ran into Gandalf. Turns out he did not actually die but instead was forced by Balrog to sell out to laundry detergent company and is now Gandalf the Sparkly White. PR whore. Next thing he’ll be charging for pointy hat trick.
In Edoras. King Theoden giving me attitude. He was all, “Are you King here? Last time I checked, I was King here. I’m lookin’ around and I don’t see anyone else with a crown on his head. Eh? Eh?”
Was forced to admit I am indeed still not King.
In revenge, stole his wallet when he was not looking and used it to open charge account at Gap of Rohan. Have bought matching poke bonnets for Gimli and Legolas.
Suspect Eowyn fancies me. Cannot blame her as stubble so manly is turning even self on.
Fell over cliff. Stupid wolves of Isengard. Think was rescued by Arwen but when woke up was kissing my horse. Bit of a squick there. Have lost favorite sparkly necklace in river. Feeling v. petulant as there is no such thing as bad jewelry. Well, maybe Ring.
Stubble update: wet.
Triumphant return to Helm’s Deep. Got hugged by Gimli. As if I needed to be reminded that he is belt buckle height yet again. Necklace returned to me by Legolas, yay! He muttered something in Elvish that could have been “You’re late” or could have been “Throw me down and shag me rotten.” Not entirely sure which. Must brush up on Elvish as do not wish to presume.
Still not King but too busy keeping up men’s morale to brood. Upcoming battle should be piece of cake, really.
Standing on battlements of Helm’s Deep. Absolutely ridiculous number of Orcs headed this way. Who are we kidding anyway. We are so fucked. Perhaps this place has a side door.
Day Fourteen, Later:
Elves have sent army of most willowy and graceful warriors to assist us. Will be no use at fighting of course but at least I will die looking at something pretty. Theoden keeps muttering, “It’s unbelievable!” about elf army. Was forced to agree –it is unbelievable that Haldir’s eyebrows do not match his weave.
Keep trying to sneak out side door, but Gimli following me everywhere. Will never be King at this rate.
Unexpectedly victorious in battle of Helm’s Deep, but celebration ruined by obnoxious postcard from Faramir, which included picture of himself on beaches of Osgiliath with tiny Ringbearer and fat companion, sharing a pina colada and wearing colorful shorts. Postcard reads:
Thanks for the Ring and the hobbits. They are small, but v. bendy. Just what I always wanted! Still have fond memories of that night we spent together in Minas Tirith. Love and kisses, Faramir.
God damn Faramir. Might as well just have let Boromir have the Ring and cut out the middleman. At least I know Sam will kill him if he tries anything.
Still not King.
a thousand kudos for the ingenious diaries….laughed for a good half hour!
Yes this one tops as well! Heart the stubble updates genius.
TuT I laughed so hard I cried! ^^ Thank you so much for creating it!

Aperantly there are piÃ±a colatas in middle earth now
“Gap of Rohan”…heeheeheeheeheehee
Absolutely ridiculous number of Orcs headed this way. Who are we kidding anyway. We are so fucked.
haha! XD oh that’s awesome
LOL ya defiantly should brush up on his elvish XD
Gimli looking about roasting size? lol.
like the stubble updates. “It’s unbelievable that Haldir’s eyebrows do not match his weave.” lol.
Days Four and Fifteen were my favorites! I just about died laughing!
That was totally fun! Thank goodness that this one is less disgusting than the first one. I especially laughed pretty hard about that part about Aragorn stealing Theoden’s wallet. That one was comedy gold.
“He muttered something in elvish that could have been ‘you’re late’ or ‘throw me down and shag me rotten'”.
I laughed so hard my sides hurt
“Dwarves taste like chicken” :O
And Day 14 killed me xD
Not king yet..
Absurdly brilliant. Keep em coming!
