General Comment

Oh, Thundera, I just re-read "Smiting Ruin", and am laughing myself silly!

Anyone who loves wordplay and appreciates the richness of Tolkien's language will enjoy this vignette! And the humorous interplay between Gandalf and the Three Hunters is a hoot....

Some of my favorite bits:

Gandalf had not been sent back to strangle Aragorn, Legolas, and Gimli, but he was sorely tempted to do so anyway.

"A fortunate guess that strayed near the mark," Legolas told the dwarf archly....

"Is futile flailing another of your strange elven customs?"

Thanks for sharing this delightful story!
