So when everybody woke up and scratched and went out and ate some of that heavenly Elven kibble, they had a big council with the King of the Elves.
The idea is that someone (Frodo Frodo Frodo) has to take the Ring to the Cracks of Doom and destroy it.
And everybody but Frodo agreed that this was the smartest plan.
Well, here’s why Frodo. After the initial planning meeting, Queen Galadriel visited Frodo while he was taking a quiet drink of green water from the Loth Lorien birdbath.
She was, like, I want the Ring!
And the little guy was like WTF?!
And then she was all sorry and explained to Frodo why he had to take the Ring to the Cracks of Doom because everyone worthwhile wanted the Ring for theirself. See?
And thereupon and whereupon and thence and so forth, the Ring Pack was chartered and sent forth and so on.
There was The Ring Bearer Frodo.
And the ever faithful Samwise.
And the other two hobbits too, just to keep the odds against success incredibly long.
And then, for the sake of diversity, we have to have a dwarf…
And three big guys. Gandalf, Strider, and a shifty, mysterious stranger from Gondor.
What could go wrong? Stay tuned for Part 4.
