Daily Prompt: Write a post in which the protagonists of two different books or movies meet for the first time. How do they react to each other? Do they get along?
(Thanks for a great prompt idea, Christine Goodnough!)
Legolas saves the three pigs
Wolf: Mmmmm, nice fat little pig to eat!
Legolas runs out of the woods
Wolf: And who might you be?
Legolas: I am Legolas, son of Thranduil. Unmouth that pig while you can still breathe!
Wolf: What’s he to you?
Legolas: He is the bearer of the Golden Ring, and he is on a quest.
Wolf: What sort of quest?
Legolas: To save our world. That Ring was made by evil goblins and this brave little Pig has volunteered to get rid of it.
Wolf: How is he going to get rid of it?
Legolas: I don’t know, we haven’t thought that far ahead. All I know is that the future of Middle Earth is in that ring in his snout.
Wolf: Isn’t that supposed to be a secret ring?
Legolas shrugs, “I’m just the archer“.
Wolf: What about these other two? Are they available to eat?
Legolas: They are a part of his quest. Don’t touch any of them or you will suffer my wrath.
Wolf: Hm… but I haven’t had my breakfast and I’m hungry
Legolas pulls back his arrow and points it at Wolf’s head. “You need to learn how to be a vegetarian Mister Wolf. If I ever hear anything about your touching another cute little pig, I’ll hunt you down and the pain of this arrow piercing your skull will be the last thing you feel in this world, I promise you!”
Wolf slinks away, grumbling “Vegetarian… who ever heard of a vegetarian wolf.”
Legolas turns to the pigs “And you three, what are you doing here? You were supposed to be with the Fellowship.”
Pig #1: We were just stopping for our after-breakfast meal of porridge, we didn’t mean to cause any trouble.
Pigs #2 and #3 nod their heads emphatically.
Legolas: Here, have a magical Elven cracker and let’s get going. We have a lot of improvising ahead of us.
