Horse with a Familiar Name, A

1. A Horse with a Familiar Name

“I swear I will never, ever write “A Horse with a Familiar Name.”


A thirteen-year-old girl named Ashley finds herself in Middle-earth. She is befriended by Legolas and Aragorn, and begins to learn fighting techniques. On one particular day, while trying to get to an archery lesson, which she is later for, Ashley accidentally runs into Aragorn. Both of them are sent flying head over heels into Legolas. The necklace that Ashley was wearing, a brown pendant decorated with a horse, and hanging from a leather chain, falls onto him.

Ashley runs off, and goes to her archery practice. When she gets back, she finds that Legolas has somehow ended up as a horse. As it turns out, Ashley bought the necklace from a pawn shop, and the man there tried to warn her about the necklace, which is actually a “genetic-changing device.” Now, Ashley and Aragorn try to keep Elrond from finding out about the whole situation, while trying to find a way to change Legolas back before the Fellowship leaves.
