Today in Middle-Earth: Ents complete the destruction of Isengard (March 3rd, 3019 T.A.)
’We have worked hard; we have done more stone-cracking and earth-gnawing today than we have done in many a long year before. But it is nearly finished. When night falls do not linger near this gate or in the old tunnel! Water may come through – and it will be foul water for a while, until all the filth of Saruman is washed away. Then Isen can run clean again.’
You have my sword.
And you have my bow.
And my axe.
Today in Middle-Earth: Merry and Pippin try to stay high and dry (March 4th, 3019 T.A.)
'There we sat high up above the floods and watched the drowning of Isengard. The Ents kept on pouring in more water, till all the fires were quenched and every cave filled. The fogs slowly gathered together and steamed up into a huge umbrella of cloud: it must have been a mile high. In the evening there was a great rainbow over the eastern hills; and then the sunset was blotted out by a thick drizzle on the mountain-sides. It all went very quiet. A few wolves howled mournfully, far away. The Ents stopped the inflow in the night, and sent the Isen back into its old course. And that was the end of it all.'
The funny thing is that, like, everybody gets our names wrong.
Everybody gets Fili and Kili wrong. Even Peter would go, "Kili— Fili."
And I hope that you remember me.
