A/N – Nothing like waiting to the last minute to submit an entry! But, that’s how I roll. This was fun. I had written some sections of this previously for Enchanteddil’s giveaway, and decided to expand and continue.
Usually, I write stories about autonomous robotic organisms from the planet Cybertron - if you know what I mean. I’ve never written about ‘real’ people before, and I’m pretty pleased with how this turned out.
Non-betaed, please excuse any grammar or spelling mistakes. I might have taken a few liberties, but tried to stay in context of what I read in the history of The World.
I hope you enjoy my little tale, and thanks for reading.

This is a late submission but I thought I'd post it anyway for your enjoyment :) It turned out longer than I expected (almost 5k words! O_O) and is pretty much a diamond in the rough, if at all. Also experimented with a writing style that I don't use very often, hopefully there was some degree of success :lol:

Path E was the one I got during your giveaway, and that was what I used here. The first bit in italics is the story prompt, and is continued in second person.

Since the winners have now been determined, it is time for me to post what would have been my entry if I hadn't been judge and thus had been allowed to participate. I took the liberty to change the prompt to the point where it is more or less completely unrecognizable, I hope NellaFantasia can forgive me for that, but this way fitted what I had in mind better.
My inbox is open to any and all feedback you care to give, no matter how harsh.

By the way, I intend to declare this story canon (i. e. as having happened like this in the official MS universe), but I'll wait with that until I hear from Damien on whether he's got any objections to that.

Edit: broke up paragraphs a bit for easier reading.
"The Desolation of Smaug?" More like "The Desolation of Script."
