[ - ]

May 2009 Challenge Banner

An anthology of stories submitted for the May 2009 Challenge. The theme was "Fix the Movies". Each author was to take a moment from the Peter Jackson film adaptations of the books, and expand it or change it to be more in line with the books, or to explain it in a story-internal manner. In addition, each author was given the name of a flower, which needed to be included somewhere in the story.

Feature Last Will and Testament by Larner

Rated G
[Reviews - 0]
Table of Contents

For the movies, Sam, Merry, and Pippin accompany Gandalf, Frodo, and Bilbo to the Grey Havens, believing they are merely seeing Bilbo leaving with the Elves. They are surprised to learn Gandalf and Frodo are going as well. The movies end with Sam returning to Rosie, Elanor, and Frodo-lad in Number 3, Bagshot Row.

So, how do we reconcile this with book-verse, and how does Sam come to realize he is now Frodo's heir, and that he inherits Bag End as well as everything else? How does he know what Frodo wishes for him?

M1 What happened after Pippin risked his life to light the beacons? Did he feel any physical or emotional shock once he had succeeded and made it back down to the ground?

Book:    “He was naked, lying as if in a swoon on a heap of filthy rags: his arms flung up, shielding his head and across his side there ran an ugly whip-weal.”

 

Movie:  “We best find you some clothes. You can’t go walking through Mordor in naught but your skin.” (Ps. At this point he’s still in some form of trousers.)
