Comic #1505

1 GM: {reading from Fellowship of the Ring} "The Balrog made no answer. The fire in it seemed to die, but the darkness grew.
2 GM: "It stepped forward slowly on the bridge, and suddenly it drew itself up to a great height, and its wings were spread from wall to wall;"
3 Kyros: Go back two paragraphs.
4 GM: "His enemy halted again, facing him, and the shadow about it reached out like two vast wings."
5 Kyros: "Like". "Like"! It's a simile!
6 GM: But the second bit says...
7 Kyros: It's an extension of the same imagery! Tolkien was a professor of English! To suggest he used simile then switched to being literal with the same word is ludicrous!
8 Lambert: It's stopped. What did you do?
8 Kyros: Cast a confusion spell. Run!!!

I'm not sure how my copy of Fellowship of the Ring got to be so battered and worn looking, given that I've only read it twice, and it was new when I got it.


2016-12-28 Rerun commentary: I guess at some point I should read that book again. I've still only read it twice. The main problem is a have a pile of books I've read zero times that I really want to bring up to "read once" first.
