Not Gonna Happens  by Larner 230 Review(s)
Kaylee ArafinwielReviewed Chapter: 10 on 1/3/2017
Happy 2017, dear Larner, and a happy 125th birthday to the Professor! *toasts him with a glass of rather flat Cherry Vanilla Dr. Pepper, as it's leftover from the cinema yesterday* (I saw Rogue One...and then I had a weird dream last night that was like a crossover of Rogue One and this. Imagine if Tilion and the pilots of the other "vessels of crystal" got involved in the battle, perhaps led by Earendil...Yeah, my brain is definitely weird. :D )

May your days grow brighter, and may this year be much better than the last!

Author Reply: Oh, yes, a most auspicious day indeed! I was drinking the remains of my eggnog as I wrote this.

Haven't seen "Rogue One" yet, but time will tell. I got the new "Ben Hur," but let friends see it first, so won't get to see it myself until I return home at the beginning of the week.

I would so hope this year would be better than last year, but am uncertain what to expect with the coming change in administrations. At least my rib is healing, even if it is still hurting some with the cold weather.

A clever crossover of NCIS and LOTR! Loved the use of Landroval in the story; especially since you make him very real without Gibbs, or the reader, ever seeing him.

Author Reply: When I was challenged to do such a crossover I knew it had to include Gibbs; but I was stymied briefly as to how to get him into Middle Earth and the Northfarthing, until I spotted one of the eagles that nests down the road from my place soaring beyond the evergreens and alders on my western fenceline. So I determined not to let Gibbs actually see Landroval, which caused the Great Eagle a deal of amusement. Then I found myself borrowing Fiondil's Lullaby....

I love allowing my favorite worlds to touch briefly! Thanks!

They should have known not to leave Pippin alone! :) Clueless about the nun but love how he covered the sound of the stool and that he enjoyed himself so much.

Namarie, God bless, Antane :)

Author Reply: Sister Monica Joan is from "Call the Midwife," a BBC production. She was born in an aristocratic household, and was disinherited when she chose to serve as an Army nurse and then joined a convent community dedicated to midwifery. She adores sweets, and would have adored Bilbo's larders! Who better for Pippin to find there? Heh! Thanks so!

Hmmmmm. Someone from our world in Hobbiton. Very interesting indeed.

Author Reply: She would have adored Bilbo's larder, I suspect. Heh! Thanks, Tari, and hope you enjoyed it!

Larner, I was up until 1.00 a.m. yesterday morning and it is all your fault, I was binge watching Call the Midwife on Youtube to find out just who Sister Monica Joan was, you are so right, she and Pippen would have made an awesome team when it came to pillaging pantries!

What a delightful crossover.

There were a couple of nuns in the original story who were just as dotty as Monica Joan, they would have fit right in!

Author Reply: Oh, I agree that Sister Monica Joan wasn't alone in being an eccentric in Mrs. Worth's original memoirs. I love both the real person and the BBC version. (I have the series in audio format, and listened to them while commuting to and from work. What a wonderful set of memories to have!)

And who better to appreciate a Hobbit's larder than Sister Monica Joan? Heh!

This was FANTASTIC, Larner! I always look forward to your updates, and hope we eventually get to have that tea together I missed a while back! You now have me wanting to watch Call the Midwife finally - but I have to get a PAL-playing viewer! (I have them in PAL format)

Author Reply: Thanks so, Tracey! I may make my way your direction perhaps next week on Tuesday or Wednesday, if you wish to meet after your done for the day with your new job. Congratulations!

I have all five seasons in DVD format, so get to watch them pretty much whenever I wish, although I don't get to see them as they're aired on PBS as I don't have television reception here.

And it was fun to put two of the characters I love most possessed of a sweet tooth together in this story.

Thanks so much!

So delightful! Shiremom absolutely adores "Midwife", so I'll print this out for her to read. Pippin will ponder this mystery all his life, no doubt.

Author Reply: I can't think of two individuals more likely to such mischief than Sister Monica Joan and a young Peregrin Took, really. Let me know how Shiremom likes it! Glad it gave you a giggle!

Never did I think I'd ever see a LOTR NCIS Crossover, but...WOW!! Love it and you've got Gibbs voice pitch perfect here too. Adore MeGee and would have loved to have seen his face when he saw the rifle and hat...Hee hee hee!!

This is just wonderful and I'm so happy you took up the challenge.

Author Reply: Oh, but when faced with such a challenge, what else might I have come up with? Heh!

I do hope things are going better at home. God bless you and all those you love.

I just came across this: how wonderful! Death and Namo: match made in an eccentric little corner of literary paradise. I'm suddenly thinking I'd love to see Elrond meet Vetinari... :)

Author Reply: And what do you think Elrond would think of Leonardo de Quirm? Heh! Or Glorfindel meeting Ghengis Cohen and his Silver Horde? Much less Aragorn meeting Captain Carrot. I so have loved Pratchett's work over the years!

Glad you enjoyed this. It was fun to write!

Love it, love it, love it.

I think my favourite bit was the description of the rabbit but I love it all. Two of my favourite universes combined in one tale.

Author Reply: Oh, I'm so glad you enjoyed it! I couldn't help but think, well, if there's a rabbit hole there MUST be at least one bunny around somewhere! Heh! Thanks for letting me know!
