There is not much action in this chapter, but it is so deeply satisfying in so many ways that at least in my mind it stands alone.

There is one biggie, but I discovered on later readings a whole lot of other zing moments.

It opens with Aragorn showing off his badass Ranger snooping skills as he and Legolas and Gimli examine the battleground by light of day. Also, Legolas mentions that the horses that ran away sounded as if they were greeting a friend. So that was a strike against the mysterious old man being Saruman.

But no sooner are they on the trail than they spy an old, bent man wearing tattered gray rags, and Gimli yells at Legolas to shoot first. Aragorn, as usual says wait, and they do, noting that the oldster wears a hood and a hat. All they can see is his gray beard.

The old man seems to lose his weariness, and Gimli and Legolas find themselves unable to raise their weapons as the man joins them, then asks who they are. A flash of white is seen among his tatters, and all the evidence points to it being Saruman.

But when they as for his name, we get this curious passage:

“ . .As for my name!” He broke off, laughing long and softly. Aragorn felt a shudder run through him at the sound, a strange cold thrill; and yet it was not fear or terror that he felt: rather it was like the sudden bite of a keen air, or the slap of a cold rain that wakes and an uneasy sleeper.

“My name!” said the old man again. “Have you not guessed it already? You have heard it before, I think. Yes, you have heard it before. But come now, what of your tale?”

He tells them who they were seeking, and invites them to talk, but when Gimli attacks, calling him Saruman, he throws off the tatters and stands there in white. Gimpli’s axe falls to the ground, Aragorn’s sword flares with light, and Legolas shoots an arrow into the air, which bursts into flame.

It’s Gandalf! Or, Mithrandir—Legolas greets him with his elven name, and Gandalf recognizes it, but when Aragorn calls him Gandalf, he says,

“Gandalf,” the old man repeated, as if recalling from old memory a long disused word. “Yes, that was the name, I am Gandalf.”

He makes a kind gesture to Gimli, who is sorely abashed to have drawn on him, then he says he is now Gandalf the White. I am Saruman, one might almost say, Saruman as he should have been. . . . I have passed through fire and deep water since we parted.

When I was a kid reader, I couldn’t figure out why he was so cagey about his name, and then that business about remembering it. But in later readings I wondered if he fell altogether out of the world, and was sent back in to finish the job. At any rate, he seems less human than he ever did, and his humanness becomes more in question with each reading. I mean, he clearly has human form, but that glimmer of white between the rags of lordship, as it were, represents a lot more than the tatters of old clothes.

Another really important point occurs to me as they begin catching up on each other’s news: Gandalf tells them that the eagles told him of Merry and Pippin’s captivity. I think every mention of the eagles is important: it demonstrates their independence, their alliance rather than their obedience, and so supports what happens at the very end.

And here is where I think he admits that he was helping Frodo to take off the ring in the nick of time, though the wording is vague, and it passed me by on countless readings:

“ . . .The Ring has now passed beyond my help, or the help of any of the Company that set out from Rivendell. Very nearly it was revealed to the Enemy, but it escaped. I had some part in that: for I sat in a high place, and I strove with the Dark Tower, and the Shadow passed. . .”

Another bit that always escaped me, but stands out now. I haven’t wanted to talk about the Peter Jackson films, as I don’t want to derail a reading of the books, but I will say this: when Gandalf says it was a pity about Boromir, but he was glad that he escaped his peril in the end (the peril of being enslaved by the ring, obviously, to which even death is preferable), “It was not in vain that the young hobbits came with us, if only for Boromir’s sake.”

I think in the book that is fairly oblique, but Jackson took that single line and did an excellent job with it, filling out Boromir’s character admirably.

Gandalf catches them up on bigger events, and then tells Aragorn and company that the hobbits are with the Ents. And as they set out together, he fills them in on what happened after his fall in Moria, and his meeting up again with Gwahir—who came at the behest of Galadriel, who has some words in poetry to pass on to the three. The best, by far, was her warm message to Gimli, “wherever thou goest my thought goes with thee.”

The horses catch up with them, and when they see smoke on the horizon, “Battle and war,” said Gandalf. “Ride on!”

Yep, I'm going. Last year was the best one ever, so I'm taking a chance...

I'm also on one panel:

Beyond the Fix or How Do I Live this F***ing Life?
Sat, 10:00–11:15 am
Conference 5

M: R. Elena Tabachnick; Shayla D, Lenore Jean Jones, Jesse the K

When you know there's no fix, your disability's never getting better, might get worse, and acceptance is the only possibility, it's time to share (aka vent). On this panel, we'll air our pet grievances, exchange survival strategies, and discuss the challenges—both surprising and predictable—of life with disability. We'll also share stories we've used to keep going.

I'm always eager to meet first-timers, and of course I'm thrilled to see my con-pals. I'll be at the hotel & therefore available for most any occasion.

Reposting from [community profile] thisfinecrew; emphasis mine:
The latest attempt to repeal the ACA (which is designed to placate the Freedom Caucus) is now being opposed by some of the more moderate Republicans who were on board with the first attempt. With the House Republican leadership trying to figure out how to proceed next week, here's a target list of representatives who need to be contacted today or Monday to let them know you oppose ACA repeal.


24 hours to reveals!

The snazzy countdown.

We have 24 hours before works are revealed, so this is the perfect time to get in those last spell checks, agonize over the title some more, and discover the perfect set of tags. Alternatively, if everything is in shape, have you considered whipping up a nice treat to make Space Swap even spacier and swappier?

Hiya Dreamwidth.

Just checking in here. I'm currently two weeks from my baby's estimated birthday, but also 1.5 weeks from giving my last final exam this semester. Let's hope baby girl is not early, yeah? Yeah. I've tried to negotiate this with her and so far we seem to have an understanding. Of course, the belly is also stretching and lumping about in a devious and mildly suspicious manner, so who knows?

I've had a pretty magical time with this pregnancy, as far as I can tell. In the beginning, it was very straightforward to adapt my meals to avoid nausea (the worst it got) and I was able to find time to sleep when the fatigue got to me. Otherwise, my migraines have been nonexistent for the duration, I've had so little oil or moisture in my skin and hair that I shower maybe twice a week at this point, which saves lovely sleeping time, and I've managed to maintain as much of an exercise program as I usually manage during the academic year anyway, so yay!

This last little bit has seen discomfort sleeping, and numbness/tingling in my hands with swelling in the feets, but it's just a few more weeks. I also scheduled two of my lectures to be presentations this week, one is an exam which I think I'll have time to grade (no early labor signs yet, and it's tomorrow, so it's a decent bet) and two lectures of review/worksheets for the first years. We can do this week, baby! Finals are scantron and backup people are set, so it's just a wait and see game now.

Wish me luck getting through the next week and a half! Once the semester is over, I can chill and just work with her schedule (as opposed to stressing and working with her schedule, lol.)

I wouldn’t mind any of the following squicks and/or kinks: None, please.

Please include further details about what you’d like to receive:

Charlotte Holmes series: I adored the world the author created. I would love to see more about what it means to be a Holmes or a Watson in a world where everyone knows about your ancestors and has Expectations. A nice contrast between the training and expectations of a Holmes, perhaps, to that of a Watson. I would love to see some of the Holmeses of the past, especially the lesbian couple (?!?) in the family tree, Valentina and Agatha. I am in love with seeing the friendship/relationship between Leander Holmes and James Watson-- how exactly did that list come about? What were the circumstances that set off each one of those numbered items? I would prefer not a lot of unhappy pining, nor do I want someone to write out James’ wife and family to make Leander and James be together. I’d rather a look at the fun, good times. If you want to write Charlotte/Jamie, please know that I find the way the author has written their relationship as of now to be pretty darn toxic, so I’d be more interested in someone trying to make it less, uh, skeevy. I also have no interest in August Moriarty or his relationship with Charlotte.

Mrs Hudson and Mary Watson series: I loved the first book, House at Baker Street, and it was amazing. Then the second book, Women of Baker Street, came out, and it was also amazing but INCREDIBLY dark, and I loved this series even more. I am loving the implications that John is teaching Mary things to make her a more effective detective, and that he’s supporting her in this, and so I’d like to see a quiet moment between the two of them, in the aftermath of the second book. I always enjoy the moments between Holmes and Mrs. Hudson, as he tries not to care but does anyway, and Mrs. Hudson always sees right through him, so something along those lines would also be welcome. I’m also completely invested in the friendship between Wiggins and Billy and would adore seeing them outside of 221B, doing things in their own life. I’d really be happy with just about anything for this series, as I think it’s incredibly smart and well thought out. (If someone were somehow able to make a book trailer vid, using source from other places, that would be amaaaaazing.)

Watson at War series: Would love a fix-it fic for Mrs. Gregson.

Mary Russell series: Nothing in particular. Would love more of Mary interacting with the women she meets, especially Iris. I’m really invested in her friendships with all the women she meets along the way, but I’d especially love Mary to meet up with Iris and her wife again.

Mycroft Holmes: I would love to see Douglas meeting Watson, years down the line, and his thoughts on the matter. I would also enjoy Douglas' reaction to Mycroft joining the Diogenes, or Douglas meeting the younger Holmes shortly after this first book. Basically, I want lots of Douglas. All the Douglas. If you're an artist, I'd love to see a rendering of Douglas, but please, no whitewashing.

Enola series: How does Enola deal with Reichenbach? Is she in the know, or kept in the dark? Also would love shipfic for Enola/Cecily.

The Great Shelby Holmes: What is Shelby like when she’s not on a case, and how does John deal with it? What’s the first day of school like for John? Does John’s mom ever find out that he’s solving cases with Shelby, and how does she react? And what went down with John’s dad?

A Study in Scarlet Women: I want more Mrs. Watson. I want her full backstory, I want her more involved with solving cases with Miss Holmes, I want a nice domestic moment at home… anything focused on Mrs. Watson! I’d also like someone to fix Treadles and his wife, because I was so disappointed with how that ended up. I do not care about or for Lord Ingram, so you can leave him out of it.

1954 Sherlock Holmes/Howard Holmes: Okay, give me an AU of Baker Street Nursemaids-- what would have happened if they had to keep the baby? How many terrible lullabies can those loveable losers come up with? What if the Baker Street Bachelors scheme had gone even more sidewise and one of them had ended up actually married to the schemers? I love how goofy this series is, so something to match that tone would be awesome. If you're a vidder, ANYTHING would be awesome, because they never make it to vid! Something schmoopy and cute would be nice, since this is such a domestic little series.

My Dearly Beloved Detective: Up to you! Just love this film. Something about Holmes pining after her Watson? Or another case, just as ridiculous as the one in the film. Does Mr. Green ever have his own case? If you're an artist, I'd adore seeing more of these two on a case, dressed in drag.

Watson and Holmes: Would love to see more about Violet Smith and Irene Adler, their relationship and friendship. How did Violet find Irene? Are they friends, or are they just teacher/pupil? How do they support each other's careers/hobbies with singing? I'm a singer, so I find this particular relationship very interesting.

Honour Among Punks: The series was never completed... tell me how it ended?

Bert Coules: Your pick! Episode tags are always a plus, especially for the Further Adventures. How does Watson feel about Holmes pulling another Dying Detective/Reichenbach in Marlbourne Point Mystery? Does Holmes visit Collington's Smith grave, from Cripplegate Square, and does he ever "introduce" Smith and Watson?

Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson/Whitehead Holmes: No specific requests, but I love how dry Watson’s humor is and how enthusiastic Holmes is. I’m also very intrigued by the ‘villain’ in Close Knit Family, and I’d love to see them pop up again in a story. For a vidder, maybe some of the antics that they get up to? Art- Holmes’ love of marmalade!

Sherlock Hound: Can Moriarty’s henchmen please have a good day? I actually feel bad for this Moriarty too, oddly. I’d love to see more of Ms Hudson and her flying skills. If you were to vid this, I’d enjoy something about all the various flying machines, driving machines, boats, etc. that come up in the series, because it always cracks me up. For art, something warm and cozy with Hound, Watson, and Hudson?

I don’t have prompts, really, for the others, but I’m fairly laidback and love lots of different things.

As for my Do Not Wants, I love female characters so please no bashing. I also like my Watsons competent and a clear partner for Holmes. No Jam!Watson, please. I don't want any of the kinks or squicks, but in particular, please note that I DO NOT like power differentials in relationships, such as teacher/student, boss/worker, etc. Noncon and dubcon are also a no go for me.

Special requests: I recognize that my requests and offers are incredibly hard to match. I'm pretty much up for anything except BBClock (I can’t do the voices!), so if you need to, I can be matched with someone that has stuff not on my list. There aren't many adaptations or pastiches that I don't at least have some familiarity with. If you're unsure, feel free to contact me. I'm flexible. I did take Elementary off of my offer/request lists this round, just because I’m currently so far behind on Elementary that I don’t think I’d be a good fit, but if it’s needed, I can always be paired there, too.

“We often think of fandom as something new and something in the hands of the audience, but my research revealed a long history of how businesses and publishers like Titbits played important roles in devising, ‘activating,’ and controlling seemingly amateur fan spaces. Perhaps this will make us think more deeply about the supposed divisions between author and fan, between corporation and individual, and between corporately controlled spaces and fan controlled spaces.”

As I mentioned on tumblr, apparently I was so upset by yesterday's terrible Rangers loss that I dreamt that Mark Messier visited me to give me a pep talk. Idek.


the April writing roundup:

and gravity, scientists say, is weak (@ AO3)
Star Wars; Anakin & Obi-Wan (Obi-Wan/Satine); AU; pg; 3,230 words
"You're not the only one who's ever been in love, Anakin."

I like how this turned out, and I know I've only written 4 stories so far, but I feel like it might possibly be my favorite title of the year.


April 2017 recs update:

[personal profile] unfitforsociety has been updated for April 2017 with 14 recs in 4 fandoms:

* 3 Check, Please!
* 1 Harry Potter

Also, two Star Wars vid recs:

* Toy Soldiers by [tumblr.com profile] kil2dei, which is a great tribute to the clones of the Clone Wars. #oh no clone feels


And finally, today's poem:

Good Bones
by Maggie Smith

Life is short, though I keep this from my children.
Life is short, and I've shortened mine
in a thousand delicious, ill-advised ways,
a thousand deliciously ill-advised ways
I'll keep from my children. The world is at least
fifty percent terrible, and that's a conservative
estimate, though I keep this from my children.
For every bird there is a stone thrown at a bird.
For every loved child, a child broken, bagged,
sunk in a lake. Life is short and the world
is at least half terrible, and for every kind
stranger, there is one who would break you,
though I keep this from my children. I am trying
to sell them the world. Any decent realtor,
walking you through a real shithole, chirps on
about good bones: This place could be beautiful,
right? You could make this place beautiful.

That wraps up National Poetry Month for 2017. I hope you enjoyed it.
