"The dwarf breathes so loud, we could have shot him in the dark."

― Haldir ( to the Fellowship ), The Fellowship Of The Ring, New Line Cinema, 2001

Good morning, DUPeeps!  It is Day 3 of Registration and there have been a few loudly snoring Dwarves joining our quest making it is almost impossible for an Elf to get any sleep around here!

Today's feature is Summerrain75 ( aka General Summdir of the Mothlorien Elven Army ) returning to her Team NaPo duties for a 3rd consecutive year!

https://deepundergroundpoetry.com/poets/Summerrain75/

You will never know if she is late or early, as Summer tends to sneak up with her bow drawn when you least expect it! Our Number & Title Clerk during this challenge keeps a sharp lookout from camoflaged flets in the trees, letting nothing get by her. Thank you, Summdir for your dedication in keeping our Dwarves walking the straight and arrow!

Summerrain75 has also been Instagrammed & Tweeted!

Still undecided about going on an adventure with us? You've got until Midnight of March 30th to join. Don't be an Elf on a Shelf collecting dust! It's Mount Dumb or Bust!

Our Fellowship so far!

I bump, you bump!

Actually, I wanted to test out the Black Speech of Morder translator.

"One Poem to rule them all."

"Ash poem u durb ul uluk."

Apparently there is no word for Poem LOL!

I'm searching around for as many resources as I can find. Some of these translator sites are obnoxious with a capital O when it comes to advertisements.

7. When Gandalf deciphers the writing engraved on Bilbo's ring, he uses an  incorrectly programmed online Black Speech of Mordor to English translator. What does the Wizard recite that offends Elrond or the others attending the emergency High Council meeting?








Yeah . . . I still got it.

Excellent! Okay, folks! This is just a preview of the alternate NaPo comp entitled 'Stomp the Prompt Comp', which, I believe, Lord Viddax was unseated as winner two years in a row by Gahddess Worship!

Yep, we'll give you plenty of fun ideas to write about and keep you so busy, you'll wonder where the month of April went.

I wonder what kind of prompt we can make out of this:

"Don't worry, Sam. Rosie knows an idiot when she sees one."

― Frodo ( to Samwise ), The Fellowship Of The Ring, New Line Cinema, 2001

Good morning, DUPeeps!  It is Day 4 of Registration and the Green Dragon Inn is as rowdy as can be with NaPo revelry! Rations of muffins, cakes, and other fruity-chocolatey-cheesy-crumby goodness are being prepared in bulk for this travelling Circus Fellowship. Elves can not live on lembas bread alone.

Our Amabassador DaisyGrace ( aka Rosie Grace of Wyrmington Heights, Muddle Earth 40121 ) is reprising her role as a Team NaPo member for a 2nd consecutive year, as well as assuming NaPo Group Director status! Lights! Camera! Act--- What ..? No, not the Peter Jackson kind of director . . .

https://deepundergroundpoetry.com/poets/DaisyGrace/

As Captain of the Edit Monitoring Department, Daisy really does know an idiot when she see one. And there will be heck to pay if she catches any of the Dwarves fudging their entries after 24 hours of posting. Thank you, Rosie Grace. It is with your lemony zest for life and baking powderkeg of a personality that our Fellowship will rise to the occasion!

DaisyGrace has also been Instagrammed & Tweeted!

Still undecided about going on an adventure with us? You've got until Midnight of March 30th to join. Try to do it before last call when Rosie is wiping down the bar and locking up the tavern.

Then you should be baking a LOT during April!

I probably will lose 10 lbs from all the anxiety and forgetting to eat.
