It was a very important day for the Hobbits of Shire University. Today was the day which Bilbo Baggins, Frodo's uncle and the Professor of Technology at Shire, would be turning 77, a very important number Merry, always the geek, would point out was "Magykal. No, Sam, with a 'yk', not a 'ic.'" <br> Fatty was even telling everyone that Gandalf, Bilbo's longtime friend would be coming to the party, and had an array of magic tricks to show off. Gandalf was an excellent magician, although he was very often withoit the props needed to do the magic. <br> "Magyk." Shut it, Merry. <br> Anyways, Rosie was going to detach herself from the community service team for one night to come over, and they planned to stay up all night eating pizza and watching old Dr. Who reruns. <br> Eventually, the evening arrived, the Hobbits finished their classes, and they all rushed over to Bilbo's office, getting there just as the first of many delivery men stopped by. Gandalf was already there, and he and Bilbo were already in full swing, The Ark in Space playing on the huge flatscreen. <br> "You started already?" Merry gasped, causing Pippin to roll her eyes. <br> "Oh no, Merry. They started watching that episode again. It's not like you've already seen it a million times." Pippin was Merry's roommate, and had to deal with the constant watching of Star Wars, Star Trek, Dr. Who, and other "nerd stuff." She didn't really mind, though. <br> "You never know," Frodo said, helping himself to a slice of pizza, "Merry might explode if he misses five minutes of an episode." This caused them all to laugh heartedly. <p> Many Pizza's and Doctor who's later, not to mention having to pull Sam and Rosie apart so they could sing happy birthday, and they were almost wrapped up. Bilbo stood up and clapped his hands. <br> "Before we all go to bed and lose ourselves in dreams of Daleks and Qeeping Angels, I wish to make an announcement. As you know, This is my 77th birthday. It's also the tenth anniversary of my adventure with Gandalf and the dwarves. I jus--" Suddenly the lights went out. The sound of breaking glass sounded through the room, and complete chaos ensued. <br> "Ow!!" <br> "Fatty, that's my toe!!" <br> "Where's Sam?" <br> "Righ-oopmph!!" <br> "Lights!" <br> The lights snapped on at Gandalf's voice command. He looked around the room. There was all the Hobbits... but where was Bilbo? It seemed odd that Bilbo was missing.... Suddenly, things clicked together inside Gandalf's head. He looked at the broken window, then at the space where Bilbo was standing five seconds earlier. There was a familiar eye symbol there. "Ahh.." He aaid. <br> "What is it, Gandalf?" Frodo asked. <br> "Nothing that should be spoken of this late, my dear Frodo. Come! Let us go to bed. We will unravel this mystery in the morning... Detecive style!" With that, the Hobbits silently exited the room and went to their dorms. When they had left, Gandalf checked the safe that Bilbo always kept behind his tv, and breathed a sigh of relief. The Golden ring.. The OneRing.. the reason that the minions of Sauron would ever come to Shire University, was safe. For now.

I admired our leader,Drizzlestar,and our deputy,Fallclaws. Soon Drizzlestar died. I was Silverpaw then,and desperate for revenge. I killed Bumptail,the EvilClan warrior who had killed Drizzlestar. Fallstar got persuaded by my father, Stormydrought,to make me a warrior. Fallstar agreed with his deputy. I was Silverfeather. Then came Needlekit. He was the evil, sharp-eyed kit. I despied him so! But i kept it a secret. I told only my most trusted friends. I felt so bad. Soon Needlekit became Needlepaw,my sister,Chirpfur's apprentice. Chirpfur grew to like him. Soon, my father died becuase Needlepaw killed him,but he lied he killed Stumpyjaw who killed Stormydrought. Stumpyjaw drowned. Needlepaw became Needleclaw,and my sister was oh so proud! I could not believe my non-luck. The baddest part was Needleclaw became the deputy. Before Needleclaw could kill Fallstar, i killed Needleclaw and ran away.
