Over-Egging the Cake

Marcus L. Rowland


"Anticlimactic," said Legolas, watching clouds of debris rise from Mordor.

"No problem," said Superman. "Sauron expected you to come across country, I just tunnelled there, took the Ring up into Mount Doom." The sky rippled, and a glowing portal appeared. He flew up, vanishing with a faint sonic boom.

"Let's head back to civilization" said Boromir.

"Aye," said Gimli.

Overhead Defiant decloaked and fired quantum torpedoes at the distant volcano. Samwise cheered half-heartedly.

"Works for me," said Frodo.

"We need a new quest," said Aragorn. "This one's buggered."

"Hmmm...." said Gandalf. "Did I ever mention a boy called Harry Potter...?"

End

Yes, I do think some crossovers are silly... This one is Lord of the Rings / Superman / Star Trek DS9 / Harry Potter, if it matters. Originally I planned to write a long essay on the importance of balancing powers and characters in a crossover, this seemed a better way to put the idea across. And no, I have no intention of saying which story made me decide to write it.

The End

You have reached the end of "Over-Egging the Cake". This story is complete.
