The HOBBIT: Episode 9 (Goblin-town)
As some of you already know, The HOBBIT: An Unexpected Journey will be in the theaters in less than 30 days, so this will be one of the last episodes, if not the last, before the movie starts. I know that my characters look very different to Peter Jackson's movie versions, but I started this series before any of us had an idea of what they looked like and used my own imagination. If I continue the series, I will only change a few little details I liked in the movies. (Just in case you wonder why my series is not at all like the movie). Enjoy! :)
About this creation

The goblins brought Bilbo and the dwarves into a huge cavern. It was lit by torches along the walls, and it was full of goblins.


They laughed and stamped and clapped their hands, when the dwarves came running in, while the goblin-drivers whooped and cracked their whips behind.


The ponies were already there huddled in a corner. I am afraid that was the last they ever saw of them.


For goblins eat horses and ponies, and they are always hungry.


And there were all the baggages and packages lying open and being rummaged by goblins, and fingered by goblins, and quarrelled over by goblins.


The goblins linked them all together in a line, and dragged them to the far end of the cavern with little Bilbo tugging at the end of the row.


There in the shadows on a large throne sat a tremendous goblin with a huge head, and armed goblins were standing round him carrying the axes and the bent swords that they use.


"Who are these miserable persons?" asked the Great Goblin.


"Dwarves and this!" said one of the drivers, pulling at Bilbo's chain so that he fell forward onto his knees. "We found them sheltering in our Front Porch."


"What do you mean by it?" said the Great Goblin turning to Thorin. "Up to no good, I'll warrant! Spying on the private business of my people, I guess! Thieves, I shouldn't be surprised to learn! Murderers and friends of Elves, not unlikely! Come! What have you got to say?"


"Thorin the dwarf at your service!" he replied - it was merely a polite nothing. "We sheltered from a storm in what seemed a convenient cave and unused; nothing was further from our thoughts than inconveniencing goblins in any way whatever."


"Um! So you say! Might I ask what you were doing up in the mountain at all and where you were coming from, and where you were going to?


In fact I should like to know all about you. Not that it will do you much good, Thorin Oakenshield, I know too much about your folk already; but let's have the truth, or I will prepare something particulary unconfortable for you!"

"We were on a journey to visit our relatives who live on the East side of these truly hospitable mountains," said Thorin, not quite knowing what to say all at once in a moment, when obviously the exact truth would not do at all.


"He is a liar, o truly tremendous one! Weveral of our people were struck by lightning in the cave, when we invited these creatures to come below; and they are as dead as stones."


"Also he has not explained this!" The goblin held out Orcrist, Thorin's sword which came from the Troll's lair.


The Great Goblin gave a truly awful howl of rage when looked at it and all his soldiers gnashed their teeth, clashed their shields, and stamped.


The goblins called it Biter, because it had killed hundreds of goblins in its time in Gondolin.


"Murderers and elf-friends!" the Great Goblin shouted. "Slash them! Beat them! Bite them! Gnash them! Take them away to dark holes full of snakes, and never let them see the light again!"


He was in such a rage that he jumped off his seat and himself rushed at Thorin with his mouth open.


Just at that moment all the lights in the cavern went out, piercing white sparks all among the confused goblins.


The sparks were burning holes in the goblins and the smoke that now fell from the roof made the air to thick for even their eyes to see through.


Soon they were falling over one another and rolling in heaps on the floor, biting and kicking and fighting as if they all gone mad.


Suddely a sword flashed in its own light. Bilbo saw it go right through the Great Goblin as he stood dumbfounded in the middle of his rage.


He fell dead and the goblin soldiers around him fled.


"Get your weapons, and follow me quick!"




Dwalin...


...Balin...


...Oin...


...Gloin...


...Kili and Fili...


...Nori...


...Ori...


...Dori...


...Bifur...


...Bombur...


...Bofur...


...Gandalf and Bilbo...


...Thorin...


"Quicker, quicker!"


Before Bilbo understood what had happened he was trotting agian as fast as he could trot, at the end of the line, down more dark passages with the yells of the goblin-hall growing behind him.


"Half a minute!" said Dori, who was at the back next to Bilbo, and a decent fellow. He made the hobbit scramble on his shoulders, and then off they all went at a run.


They began to hear goblin noises and horrible cries behind in the passages they had come through. that sent them on faster than ever , and as poor Bilbo could not possibly go half as fast, they took it in turn to carry him on their backs.


"Why, o why did I ever leave my hobbit hole!" said poor Mr. Baggins bumping up and down on Bombur's back.


"Why, o why did I ever bring a wretched little hobbit on a treasure hunt!" said Bombur, who was fat, and staggered along the sweat dripping down his nose in his heat and terror.


At this point Gandalf fell behind, and Thorin with him. "Draw your sword Thorin!"


The goblins came scurrying round the corner in full cry, and found Goblin-cleaver, and Foe-hammer shining cold and bright in their astonished eyes, before they were killed.


But neither Bilbo, nor the dwarves, nor even Gandalf knew that some goblins who stayed behind in the dark were still alive. Nor did they see or hear them.


Suddenly Dori, now at the back again carrying Bilbo was grabbed behind in the dark. He shouted and fell...


...and the hobbit rolled off his shoulders and fell into the blackness.

Awesome creation! I was just stopping by to say thanks very much for the invitation to join The Fellowship of the Brick, but I'm just really not a LOTR builder, and I couldn't be as active as this awesome group deserves. Hope you don't mind.

This is a great series of MOCs and they are all well built. The Hobbit is my favorite book, too and it inspired me when I first read it to write my own novels. I've since given up on writing them in book form and am determined to make them into motion capture movies on the scale and beauty of James Cameron's Avatar. This was always one of my favorite chapters (as well as Out of the Frying Pan, Into the Fire and The Battle of Five Armies) and you created it perfectly to the imagery in my head. I really hope that Peter Jackson's The Hobbit will be good or at least half as good as the Rankin Bass version (which I matched "Dark Side of Oz" style with Led Zeppelin's disc...2? 3? The one that starts with Immigrant Song. Again, great builds. I hope you continue this series.

Quoting Deus Otiosus Interesting and all - but you speak as if the movie was "the correct representation"... Well, everybody has his or her preferences.
Actually I wanted to say the opposite. If I really thought that the movie is the only correct representation, then I wouldn't continue the series with my own character designs. The thing is that young HOBBIT fans who only know the movies might be wondering why my characters don't look like them at all. I just wanted to inform them that not many things will change with the movie.
