Smiting Ruin (195): Thundera Tiger
G, Reason for Rating: N/A
Romance Partners: N/A
A clash of movie verse and book verse during the scene in which Gandalf the
White reunites with Aragorn, Gimli, and Legolas. Changing the words around

Shire.

Fell Deeds, Awake (941): Marta
G, Reason for Rating: n/a
Romance Partners: n/a
Of all the things to be bothered by about the movie version of Helm's Deep,
the one that really gets to me is the fact that it's *Gimli* who sounds the
Horn of Helm Hammerhand. Here's my attempt to give this quandary a bit of
depth: the conversation between Aragorn and Theoden in the Hornburg, from a
rather Dwarvish perspective.

Foresight (1044): quirky_orthodox

Boromir's fall.

Giving Ground (1123): Suzene Campos
G, Reason for Rating: n/a
Romance Partners: n/a
Legolas' POV after he and Aragorn argue at Helm's Deep. Two Towers
movie-verse.

What's Right Before You (756): Tom Fairbairn
G, Reason for Rating: G
Romance Partners: N/A
Aragorn finds out Pippin lit the beacons of Gondor. Movieverse, based on a
Shirebound plotbunny.

Delete "(movieverse)" at end of the summary? This should be obvious
given the category.

Make "Wise" lowercase? And also, maybe delete "Movieverse." at the end
of the summary, since it's in the movieverse category?

Change: zbilbo's --> Bilbo's.
