Except for the son of one whose people work the fields east of the Baranduin, and a living woman.... Heh!

Ah! Now THIS one is definitely aptly named!

A friend of mine once wrote this couplet:

No living man may hinder me!
What's that throbbing in my knee?

Go, Merry and Eowyn!

Wake up and smell the coffee, Angmar!

One would think that the presence in Middle-earth of many beings who are not living men might trouble ol' tall-dark-and-noisome, what with Ents, Eagles, Elves, and one very peeved Wizard, but noooo.

Just let that particular skinny, boyish Rider with the short friend get nice and close to you, now...

I love the smell of Arrogance dissipating, along with funky ancient steel-spiked crowns, in the morning.

Author Reply: I have to confess, this was at least partly inspired by Elana's story 'No Living Man'. (SoA 1672)
