There are some forests even Legolas cannot abide, and there are some caverns even Gimli cannot endure. A Halloween gapfiller featuring the Grey Company on the Paths of the Dead.
This was written for the October challenge: "Believe it or Not." My element was the word "mysterious."
Table of Contents
A few portions of dialog were taken directly from Tolkien's The Return of the King, pages 69-70. Additionally, the poem I quote is from T.S. Eliot's "The Hollow Men." The opening quote comes from Stanza I while the closing quotes come from both Stanzas I and V, respectively. Enjoy and have a happy Halloween!
