"I can do a flyby over Mordor before we make our earnest journey East," said Meneldor. He had been humiliated by the carnival, and would not do that again. But then, the ground shook and the distant mountain Mount Doom exploded in new fury. "Or not. I will have to stay away from there, I don't want singed feathers." Looks like it didn't need any Dark Lord to erupt, it did fine on its own.
Brondgast looked mesmerised at the volcano's fury. He had never seen anything like it, and it was a bad omen for him. What would this mean as he continued East in their search for Tempest?
Meneldor had told them of a nightmare he had last night. Galadriel had said what would happen to the elves who stayed behind and did not take the Last Ship. They would dwindle and diminish, forgetting and being forgotten. He had seen some of them.
Some were reduced to the level that they were baking cookies in a hollow tree.
Others were even more confused, they seemed to think they were dwarves. They were busy making toys for a fat man in a red suit. They thought the important things were wiggling their ears, saying 'he he' 'ho ho,' and things like that. The song they sang grated upon the Eagle. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KxHRA3k5-_U
One even threw a flightless bird off a sleigh to his death. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dnuGi0P6-qc
And what in blazes was a DENTIST????
He would plead with any elf he saw to avoid that horrible fate and take the quickest ship West and remember their heritage after this terrible vision!
