See a darker side of the hobbits at Shipwreck: J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings
Witness in titillated horror as six writers share their own detailed versions of how certain characters from The Lord of the Rings really should have ended up. It's theater, it's erotic fan fiction—this variety night hosted by Shipwreck is a little bit of everything. One writer's narrative will win in the end, so to judge them fairly, Welcome to Night Vale's Cecil Baldwin will recite every twisted plotline with his cool tenor voice. Then you (yes, you!) vote for the best.
