The Return of the Kite, part 5
part 1 / part 2 / part 3 / part 4

Pip, I’m worried. I think the Baggins has finally cracked. I mean, Blue Monkeys? That’s nuts.

Pip: Meebee it’s the stress gettin' to the laddie.
Merry: If this doesn’t stop, we’ll have to take him to a healer. Don’t the Chubb’s have a cousin Spitfire who’s supposed to be good at this sort of "thing"?

Psst Frodo. You seeing any of those “Blue Monkeys” now?

Are you making fun of me?

Who, us?

**Smooch** You know we love ya.

Sure Pip. No ridicule intended. Right.

Gandalf, the other hobbits don't believe me. They're making fun of the Blue Monkeys.

I wish the Kite had never left me. I wish none of this had happened.

GtG: So do all that come to see such times, but that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us. There are other forces at work in this world, Frodo, besides the will of ev--

Yadda, yadda, yadda, old man. Heard it before. Don't care. Been there, done that. You need new material, dude.

*Faint voice offscreen* Froooo-doooo! Oh Froooo-doooo! Frooo-dooooo Baaaaaaa-ginnnnnns!
FB: Eh?

Oh great googly moogly! Now what?

Who are you?

My name is Mr. Spock of the USS Enterprise. I too am adored by geeks throughout the universe.

Oooooooh-kay. What do you want?

I heard you lost some sort of kite thing. We found this in the engine room. Is this what you were looking for?




Huh. Go figure. Oh well.

Live long and prosper?


The emotions of hobbits are highly illogical. Well, I can do for you what I do for Captain Kirk to cheer him up.

Uh oh. Gandalf warned me to beware of spacemen offering cheer. A torture not dreamed of by Sauron.

In the Middle of the Earth
In the land of the Shire
Lives a brave little hobbit...


dorothy:come on, you guys. we've got to find fredo......frogo....things kite. this needs a change of song!

the road goes ever on and on down from the door where it began........

hey, it's dr. spock!

greetings, dorothy. i have visited the halfling, though he seemed to react most oddly to my rendition of the ballad of bilbo baggins.

And what of the kite?

still the kite is missing. still the enemy searches and still frodo must find it. you must help him

dorothy: i know what i must do. we shall set forth to middle earth to help a hobbit in need.
lion: will i get my courage?
scarecrow: and my brains?
tin man: and my mac and cheese.......uh, i mean heart?

your wishes shall all be granted. live long and prosper

farewell spock!
now far ahead the road has gone
and we must follow if we can.........

I TOLD them to let me carry the kite!

But noooooooooooooooo...

They just HAD to let the HALFLINGS have it!

But, oh, I'll show them. I will show them.


Eeheeheehee...*meanders off for unknown purposes*

Whoa. What was THAT about?

Who knows? He's a dwarf! You know how they can be.

Hm. Good point.

gandalf, i fear the dwarf now wishes for the kite himself. the fellowship is breaking apart. said i needed new material *sniff* why should i tell you anything..........but.......if you insist.......the pull of the kite is strong and hard to resist. the fellowship is indeed breaking. first the elf fell, now the dwarf....


not more visitors! ok, who are you and where are you from?

I'm dorothy, this is lion, scarecrow and tinman. Leonard Nimoy sent us from Oz.

we found this and thought it might be your kite

What? That's not a kite!

geez. you try to help a hobbit and this is the thanks you get? well i'm off. hmph.....
