2. The Common Tongue and Creatures of Mirkwood

Author notes: This is my first attempt at Pratchett-style writing. It's probably terrible, but I need practice.
Arianawen Shinysilverhair was only a child* when she fell into Middle Earth. She wandered for days without food or water** or guidance. However, seeing the plight of the lovely golden haired maiden, the creatures of the forest*** guided her to the elven halls of Mirkwood.
There she met the man of her dreams. This she told Legolas of Mirkwood: "My name is Arianawen Shinysilverhair**** and I love you Prince of Mirkwood!"
Legolas stared at her in confusion for a moment. Who was this strange woman whose language sounded incredibly similar to that of the Orcs? His eyes narrowed. Then, Legolas Thranduilion shot the strange girl who was obviously allied with Sauron. The two giant spiders who had led the child to him came back to their senses, and attacked the elf.

*of 13, which is the age of many fangirls.
**but didn't starve because she is a Mary Sue.
***namely two giant spiders, a couple of Orcs, and an evil looking gerbil.
****This was, naturally, her pen name on
