Author's Note: Fixing Peter Jackson’s vision

The politest way I can say this is I wish that Peter Jackson had hired and relied on a continuity crew. When I was young and still in school, I was told that I would make a good continuity person because I was “so very anal retentive”; I, of course, choose to see this as a good thing, there should be someone on the set concerned with did the shot before end with him smoking or eating, was it a red mug or a blue mug, in his right hand or his left, how many buttons were unbuttoned. And because there are so many, MANY places where Mr. Jackson doesn’t remember to carry out his own vision of what was happening, I choose a scenario that may be dear to many readers thoughts, only wish I had the photography skills to go air brush the relevant frames. Since I don’t {heavy, heavy sigh}, I’ll leave you to image the scenes with the “proper” amount of attire and give you this little drabble with my element instead.

Author's Note: My second choice of errors, what kind of an idiot leaves a DEAD friend to watch over the awakening of a sick unconscious person? Do you really think that if you woke up from a near death experience, and the first thing you see is a DEAD friend that you would smile and laugh? When your laughter, draws in your younger cousins, would you be happy to think them dead also, when all you wanted was for them to find a safer way?

Bypassing Cormallen leaves out many important healing and reconciling moments. Let’s try this one on:

Interlude in Buckland by Dreamflower

Author: Dreamflower
Title: Interlude in Buckland
Theme: “Fix the Movies”
Elements: A flower-- Dragon’s teeth
Rating: G
Author's Notes: As this is my first movie-verse story, I am going to make a few assumptions. First of all, I am assuming that it has been at least one year since the Party-- enough time for Gandalf to go off and find out what he needed to find out, and enough time for Frodo to have more or less settled in at Bag End. This would make Frodo 34 in movie-verse, and I am going to make Sam and Merry one year younger, so they are just now of age, while Pippin in this version is about 31--still not of age, but closer to being of age than he was in the books. However, I am still assuming that Frodo lived at Brandy Hall for a few years before Bilbo adopted him. Also, I am using the movie-verse convention that Bree is somewhat closer to the Shire than it was in the books. Some of the dialogue is taken from FotR, Chapter V, "A Conspiracy Unmasked".
Summary: What happened after the four hobbits got the ferry across the Brandywine, before they headed to Bree?

Title: Where Was Imrahil When Grond Hit the Gate?
Rating: PG
Theme: Adventure
Elements: stonecrop
Author's Notes:

An actor was reportedly cast as Imrahil, Prince of Dol Amroth, but never was used in the film "Return of the King." The screen writers explained that Imrahil appears so late in the story that his inclusion would further confuse movie firsters who were wrestling with Tolkien's similar sounding names. So I decided to "fix" the films by dropping Imrahil and the Swan Knights of Dol Amroth into the movies in a location where they might logically be...and give them a bit of action.


Summary: The city of Dol Amroth faces certain destruction by a Corsair fleet. Prince Imrahil has a plan to save them, but it is fraught with risk.
