Another day-late one, since my thesis draft was due today. It's done! Now I can have fun with drabbles again.
Set while Merry and Pippin are the captives of the Orcs, when the Orcs, Uruk-hai, and goblins argue about what to do with them. Probably slightly AU because I bet Ugluk had more than twelve supporters.
Dealing with Uruks was always tickly business. He licked his lips as the leader of the wizard-spawn boasted. This muck-raker showed no respect, not even for the Great Eye; they would have to teach him better, cut his swollen head down to size. Soon Grishnakh would let the Orcs tear these beasts apart. They would show him who were the fighters. His hand tightened on his sword as he waited for the cue.
"Swine is it?" Grishnakh hissed.
He drew his blade, baring his fangs. "We'll hear you squeal, piggy, when we tickle you," he promised Ugluk and his dozen.
*'We have already overtaken some of those that we are hunting,'
[Aragorn]said. 'Look!' ... Five dead Orcs lay there. They had been hewn with
many cruel strokes, and two had been beheaded.*
