Hey Landroval. How’s it going?

Oh, pretty good. Just getting ready for a bit of a road trip next week. Well, not really “road” so much as a “sea” trip.

Yeah, I guess it’s not really a secret any more. Galadriel and Elrond have been planning it for years. And now that everything’s taken care of in Gondor, I just have a few loose ends to tie up before we ship out.

That’s why I’m here, actually. I was hoping to talk to you and Gwaihir. Is he around?

Oh hey, Gwaihir. I didn’t see you back there. How’s it going, bro?

So I just wanted to thank both of you again for helping out with hunting down the rest of the Nazgûl and rounding up the remaining Orcs. And shuttling Elessar and me back and forth between Rohan and Gondor — that was a huge timesaver with the whole monarchy transition. Again, thank you.

That being said, I heard you guys are moonlighting for sci-fi characters now?

Nothing’s wrong with it. I just wanted to know if it was going to be a permanent thing.

Hey, we paid you too! Radagast kept you guys in giant magic voles since the early days. You really need supplemental income that badly?

Huh. I had no idea their benefits were so good. It’s just… well, I’m skipping town and the elves are pretty much done and… you guys are like the biggest symbols of good and hope around here after we leave. So I was hoping you guys could keep an eye on the humans from now on.

Aw, come on. You wouldn’t have to do much. Just look out for the King? Maybe keep his heirs safe? Just between you and me, Elessar’s set aside a nice little corner of the Shire you could use for snacking.

Dude, you know the Ents are turning back into trees. They’re only good for another hundred years, tops. Plus they’re slower than crap. Come on, please? I’d ask the dwarves but you know how they are.

Yeah, I guess you could take shifts. Just remember Middle-earth is your main priority.

Good. I knew I could count on you guys. Just remember only to eat older hobbits. They’re fatter anyways. Okay, thank guys. Hey, how about a goodbye hug for your favorite wizard huh? C’mere you.
