      Ok…

      Making something beautiful in a broken world can be harrowing work. And it can’t be done alone.

            Did anyone happen to copy the story?

              @mischievous-thwapling,

              Ooh, Robert Frost! I have that exact same quote (just haven’t used it on here yet). 😉

              I think Wing did, but she’s not on here anymore. :-*( Maybe we could just start from the finding of the second map?

                Hah! My mom copied the story and here is the very last post by Jazzyfresh aka Jasmine!

                “Ok! Time to move!” Holly called as she helped Lander to his feet , then she rode over to Jason and took the little girl from him “let me hold her” she said, and examined the little girls face. Half of it was swollen and bruised where the Hhborgen had hit and the other half was fair, pretty and streaked with dirt. “You poor thing” Holly murmured, “don’t Worry I’ve got you” then she turned to see mama Hhborgen looking at them as if saying ‘I’m gonna squash you into a extra thin pancake before you can say Guacamole ‘. “Ok guys, time to go!” Holly shouted, then turned and nudged Lander into a gallop.

                  @kylie-wingfeather,

                  Aha! Thou has jumpstarted this role-play. Thine mother is an extraordinary lady of extraordinaryness! My deepest gratitude to you and yours. 🙂

                    Lagoron swung onto Radiance as quickly as he could, urging her into a quick lope with a word. He glanced behind him, noting Jason and Arla (can’t remember her name, ahh!!!) following on his heels. The mama hhborgen began a thumping chase, but soon halted and roared her warning. She turned back to her baby as the stench of her breath overcame the fleeing intruders.

                    Lagoron slowed his mare as he caught up to Holly. His quiver bumped against his back as he trotted up and requested a halt.

                    “Sure,” Holly replied, reining Lander in. Jason and Arla caught up, and Bramber, with an indignant yawp, leapt down from his seat in front of Lagoron. Raidiance gave him a haughty glare.

                    “Mind if I take her?” Lagoron asked, indicating the young lass in front of Holly.

                    “I suppose,” Holly said. “But I think she’s scared. The ride probably wasn’t much fun.”

                    Lagoron took the girl into his saddle and looked her over. Tears streaked her face, either from the pain of the hhborgen’s blow, terror from the reckless dash, or both.

                    “Nanan îdh,” Lagoron murmured, tucking a strand of hair behind her ear.

                    There was a collective gasp. The girl’s ear was pointed.

                    Lagoron’s eyebrows shot to the sky. “She’s an elf!”

                    ————————————————————————————

                    Y’all ok with this? Also, I was thinking that maybe the girl is from a refuge camp of the survivors of Londima, who we can run into, and get some info about the dragon (or was it a grififin) that dwells therein. 🙂 Thoughts?

                      I’m ok with that. What should her name be? Or did we already name her?

                        How about Melian? It’s the name of a main character in Tolkien’s Silmarillion. Or we could make up a name, like I did with Lagoron and Larawen.

                          AHHHH! do you mean on the website or just the story?

                            Sadly, on the website. 🙁 She’s taking a break, but she’ll be back (Thwapling and I have “had” ice cream “together” to ease the pain of our loss. You’re welcome to join us!)

                                and @jasmine

                                Yes… we had a lot of ice cream… *dejectedly stares at trash can overflowing with empty, sticky gallon tubs that once held ice cream that I ate as I sobbed*

                                EVERYONE:

                                *quietly tip-toes into room, softly shuts door, then creeps over to the table where you are all sitting, sits down, straightens clothes, then clears throat uncomfortably* So… what should I do? Or rather, who should I be?  For some reason I have a habit of joining RPs or collaborative stories very late, which means I either have to pick up  someone who’s left character or just make one up.  Would  y’all rather me pick up a character (if there’s one left behind) or create one? Perhaps I could be Melian (If that’s what we decide to name her) for a bit until I figure out a character? I dunno.. Help!
