Eonwe Valar (4:40:10 PM): If we have no better Tolkien topics :}
Eonwe Valar (4:40:41 PM): Though that might interest only 3 of us and one of those three should be doing an essay instead of talking about the RP :}

AriehnV (4:46:47 PM): yikes both of you nasty jobs but nice assignment
AriehnV (4:48:05 PM): just a a wee hint .. there is an idea for another story in the back of my head
Eonwe Valar (4:48:14 PM): hehe
Eonwe Valar (4:48:41 PM): Speaking of ideas in the back of my head, maybe now that I have a bit of time, I should start putting mine on paper again.
AriehnV (4:48:44 PM): remember the phrase in the Hobbit about Galion, the cellar master?
Eonwe Valar (4:48:53 PM): Please tell us :}
AriehnV (4:49:13 PM): somewhere in the last part .. after the escape of the dwarves with Bilbos aid
AriehnV (4:49:55 PM): there is a phrase .. something like (*no one has told the story what became of Galion the cellarmaster ....
AriehnV (4:50:05 PM): along those lines
Eonwe Valar (4:50:09 PM): Ah..
TH0R0NGIL (4:50:11 PM): ya
Eonwe Valar (4:50:16 PM): So you plan on telling the story :}
AriehnV (4:50:26 PM): ;-)
AriehnV (4:50:48 PM): its niggling
AriehnV (4:51:20 PM): i could imagine that he ran of with a bad conscience and tried to make up somehow for his failure
AriehnV (4:51:41 PM): being an honorable , dutiful elf
Eonwe Valar (4:51:55 PM): :}
Eonwe Valar (4:52:52 PM): Ok, I guess we can go ahead and call the meeting here, move into Aftermeeting so that those with lots of work ahead of them can turn their attention even more in that direction.
Eonwe Valar (4:53:55 PM): *bangs gavel*
TH0R0NGIL (4:54:05 PM): *grabs ears*

Eonwe Valar (4:54:26 PM): Aftermeeting :} Feel free to stay and chat or leave at your leisure :}
ArPharazonV (4:54:53 PM): Eonwe, I'll save, but you were here before me and will probably be afterwards, so I don't think I'll send
ArPharazonV (4:55:14 PM): or maybe I'll only send somewhere next week
Eonwe Valar (4:55:59 PM): Varda will get a copy from me either way, no worries :}
ArPharazonV (4:56:05 PM): good, good
Eonwe Valar (4:56:57 PM): I guess you won't have time for the RP anytime soon, Phar?
Eonwe Valar (4:57:01 PM): Not for a month at least?
ArPharazonV (4:57:23 PM): nope
Eonwe Valar (4:57:29 PM): ok
ArPharazonV (4:57:57 PM): my interest has been so low, it has even come to my mind that I should draw out...
Eonwe Valar (4:59:00 PM): In the middle of your own story arc? :}
ArPharazonV (5:00:33 PM): *shrug* Calion might head out into the forest after his brother and depart from your storyline
Eonwe Valar (5:01:18 PM): Heh, actually, I was leaning towards Auros helping in the tracking down, heh. Figures. Auros and Calion could never just get along :}
Eonwe Valar (5:03:44 PM): If I understood correctly, they'd be heading west anyway, so not really out of the way so much as a detour for Auros.
ArPharazonV (5:04:34 PM): I doubt I'll go that way, though
Eonwe Valar (5:04:34 PM): Anyway, don't want to draw too much attention from your essay :}
ArPharazonV (5:04:38 PM): *nod*
ArPharazonV (5:04:45 PM): putting the finishing touches on the last section
Eonwe Valar (5:04:51 PM): Ah, ok
Eonwe Valar (5:08:10 PM): I thought the tension between Auros and Calion added something to the story, both being presumably strong-willed characters.
ArPharazonV (5:08:37 PM): I haven't really thought about Calion in ages... just too much on my mind these months
Eonwe Valar (5:08:50 PM): Aye, I understand how that is.
ArPharazonV (5:17:22 PM): saved, and keeping it that way.. anything else is yours
Eonwe Valar (5:17:30 PM): OK
