(Drabble) Darkness Unescapable

This drabble is especially foreowyn_315. No, it wasn't requested. Yes, I'm evil. Please don't hate me. :-)

It's set shortly after Book 6 Chapter V of 'Lord of the Rings'.
"The great dark wave climbing over the green lands and above the hills, and coming on, darkness unescapable. I often dream of it."


Darkness Unescapable

Faramir, Steward of Gondor, smiled tenderly at his bride as they stepped out of the chapel. The crowd cheered, rejoicing in their shared happiness. A cupbearer approached, bearing a double-handled goblet of finest wine. He offered it to Faramir, who toasted his wife then passed her the cup in turn. Then the young man said,

"With your permission, I will recite a poem in your honour. It is composed in a new style, with exactly 100 words, and - GLURK!!

To his dying day, Faramir never learned why Éowyn upended the goblet and rammed it down over the poet's head...

You have amused me. You may carry on with this... drabbling of yours.

But everyone else get brained by a goblet.

*giggles to herself*

Ah, our poor eowyn_315. We have flooded her flist with our goofy funtimes. This does amuse me.

Schadenfreude isn't big or clever, you know.

Perhaps not, but it does entertain me. That's what counts. :)

There's a link to eowyn_315's LJ in my introduction; she was complaining that all the drabbles people have been writing these last couple of days are taking over her flist and drowning out everything else, like a vast green wave of 100-word posts flooding the countryside with darkness unescapable.

I thought you might appreciate this drabble. :-)

(And it's my first ever use of a "lotr" tag, I believe.)

Then the Lord High Drabblist of Gondor stood forth to offer his ode "In Honor of the Blessed Nuptials of Faramir, son of Denethor, Steward of Gondor, and Eowyn, daughter of Theodwyn, noble Shieldmaiden of Rohan." And discovered that the title alone had used up a quarter of his allotted space.

Tolkien would have hated drabbles. Unless he invented a language where you could express an entire sentence in a single word...

entire sentence in a single word

Somewhat like the reverse of Entish...
