ETA: Apparently there's a caption that goes along with this video at some sites. Three greats walk into a bar, and the bartender takes their order.

Picard: Tea. Earl grey, hot.
Spock: I'll pass.
Gandalf: You shall not pass!


many happy returns to two special hobbits

Originally published at Faith Seeking Understanding. You can comment here or there.

To which I can only say:

By way of commemorating the day, have two clips. First, a bit from the BBC adaptation of Frodo’s and Sam’s passage through Mordor. This was my first exposure to Tolkien.

Second, here is JRRT himself reading from “Riddles in the Dark.”

Finally, by way of looking back, I thought I’d share some of my fannish stories involving Bilbo and Frodo:

The King Has Come Unto His Halls“: Bilbo and Gloin, in the aftermath of the Battle of The Five Armies. (Spoilers for end of The Hobbit)

A Hole Possessed“: A love-sonnet from Lobelia S.-B. to Bag End.

Heart of Stone“: about Frodo’s years in Buckland, between his parents’ deaths and coming to Bag End

Some Like It Hot:” In which Bilbo tries out a foreign spice on his Buckland relations.

A Conspiracy Forged“: Pippin’s experience of the Birthday. One of the first fic I ever wrote and it shows, but this story still has a tender place in my heart.

Mad Baggins”: A hobbit drinking-song about the Party, co-written with Tanaqui.

Mathoms“: Bilbo and Aragorn in Rivendell, after the Party.

    I don't send out cards anymore, but I was drooling over all the pop-up ones Amazon had and wondering if it might not be time to resume the tradition (I decided no).

    Not much help in the Hallmark…

    That's great! Happy Thanksgiving to you and thanks for the marching, musical cats. LOL
