#315 The day I tried to pass

There'd definitely be a market for it. The first few films made a killing. Plus, it wouldn't require all of the characters to return, only some. So the budget would be cheaper. It's important to understand the consequences of one of history's greatest stories, not just for the hero and his friends but for all of Middle Earth and that's why I think a Lord of the Rings film should be made from the Balrog's perspective.

Winter in mountain country. Off goes my demon alarm clock. I get out of my Balrog bed, brush my Balrog teeth and eat some fire for breakfast, with a glass of lava. It looks like it's going to be a lovely day.

Life is pleasant here in this deep place of the world. At fifty kajillion years old, I don't go outside much anymore but I have my little den and my underground rock garden. I spend time rehearsing my roar, which is coming on leaps and bounds. My balance isn't what it used to be but I can still crack a whip when I need to.

The goblins bother me. I have to keep scaring them off and I worry that one day they'll become too strong for me. Still, it could be worse. Most of my demon friends have passed on. You have to be grateful, don't you?

Hey! What's that I just heard? It sounded like the voice of a Wizard! I'm so excited. I've not had any guests around here for a long time. I'm going to go and see if he wants to make friends with me.
