Tenebrous, the Corrupter – 18 Nuts

There was a saying, his old corpse remembered, something about being slow and steady to win races. Well that was just nuts. And not even these kinds of nuts. The bad kind. The kind you can’t poison and give to other forest animals to corrupt them from the inside out (those that would at least play along with the scenario obviously). And yet…

Tenebrous had been on top just moments ago, his pile of nuts had been the biggest, the most glorious, the most malignant and rancid. Yet now it was just another pile, a sad, decrepit pyramid of nuts slouching toward Babylon to be born. He needed to fix this. He needed to do something or he might as well give up. If he could give up, he probably would have a long time ago. He had given up in fact, he had died for Yavanna’s sake! Yet here he was. He was still here, spinning and spiraling in the mortal coil. He wanted, needed, to be done with this little game so he could hibernate. Sleep was so close to death, and his sleep was even deeper.

In his tree, dead Tenebrous lies dreaming.

One at a time seemed to be the most assured way to sneak out a victory. Well, needs must.

He looked over at the raccoon trio and glared at them, his milky yellow eyes attempting to convey a message.

Three Raccoons

Yes their pile was well. It was shrinking. "WHAT THE FREDGAR BOB????" Hob chittered very loudly at his brother that was suppose to be the next most responsible one. Who motioned at Reginald the Third that was trying to get back into the bird bones from the carcass that they had devoured. He narrowed his eyes and nodded. Bob held up his bird bone shiv and glanced at Reginald and shook his head. Hob for his part let out a little shriek of malcontent and looked up to the heavens.

"FINE DON'T Stab him. But protect the nuts first." To that Bob nodded and then motioned at twig squirrel that had freaked Reginald out before. The Squirrel was looking at them. The raccoons looked at the squirrel glaring right back. as Hob sat near Tevildos stash having successfully stolen a good number of nuts already and had taken one from the large predator already. Indeed he was going to stay put and steal another nut from him

Skwovet

POWERRRRRR

She felt POWER coursing through her. She had nuts! So many, many nuts! Naturally, Skwovet (still being unable to do arithmetic) was assuming that her nut pile was the biggest of them all at the moment. But still. She peered around the clearing and skampered from stash to stash to inspect the piles and yes, hers looked a bit larger. Back at her own nut stash, she rubbed her little paws together and cackled, veins bulging in her face with all the pent-up glee.

The power she felt prompted a new boldness. She would steal from the big cat! Yes, she would! If she had sleeves to roll up, she would have done so. Things being as they were, she gave a determined snort and marched right up to the cat’s dwindling pile of treasures.

Dart the nuthatch, 18 nuts
Dart was getting really very tired of all these squirrel shenanigans. How did they have so much energy? He fell asleep in a little cozy cavity while contemplating war with Tenebrous and how to steal all his nuts back once and for all.

When he awoke from the loveliest dream of being crowned King of the Nuts and leading all the other nuthatches in glorious battle against the squirrels, reality was hard to face because the nuthatch was not king of anything.

But he could try. Dart zigged and zagged his way down the tree trunk and reached the forest floor where he gathered up a bunch of sticks in his beak. Attack #2. If Tenebrous liked sticks, Dart would give him sticks. The nuthatch took took the air and then dropped the sticks somewhere in (un)dead-squirrel's vicinity before he dove for Square's pile because that one sure had stolen a lot of his hard-earned nuts!

Mister Black (Mirkwood Squirrel)

He had been unsuccessful. The little squirrel still had his nuts. Taking a breather, Mister Black listen to the chittering going on a little way off. He had seen the three raccoons, but didn't dare approach them. He very much disliked an angry, hissing, raccoon. Ai, he had had his share of encounters with them back in his old forest. Suddenly, even though this forest had more food and wasn't as dark and musty, the three racoons (angry and hissing even) made him long for his old home. He was all alone. He sat back on his hind legs and took a trip down memory lane, his bright eyes slowly misting as he did so.
He remembered some of his squirrely buds. There had been Toughie, the bossy one who always wanted to rule their world and always got the best nut. There was the three blonde squirrels; Sci, Sim and Sin. Their fur always looked soft and silky. And then there was the nine black squirrels that always gave him the shivers. He was a black squirrel, but they were so black that, it was as if they were black holes that one could fall through and be lost for ever. Mister Black did not know their names and never bother to ask. And lastly, there were the septuplets. Their mother had trouble birthing them, hence they were all dwarfed. They had funny names, he recalled. Ding, Dong, Bing, Bong, Fling, Flung and Harry. A strange circle of friends, but they had been friends
Looking towards the chittering raccoons, Mister Black decided he would put up with their angry hissing just to feel some kind of camaraderie once more.

Three Raccoons

Success. Hob brought the one nut he'd managed to take back to their pile and reminded Bob to stab squirrels and birds that tried to steal their nuts. He motioned at a large black squirrel that seemed to be eyeballing their pile of nuts, they'd only just gotten it back to where it had been. He headed back out though to get another nut, hopefully. He looked at another squirrel that decided to join him in raiding the big cats nut stash. At least there were still enough that they didn't have to overly worry about there not being enough nuts for the both of them to steal. well hopefully.

Reginald for his part was still trying to eat the nuts that they had already amassed and it was not going well, so far he had not managed to break any teeth at least though.

Tenebrous, the Corrupter – 18 Nuts
\
Apparently, he was a shire thief. The shirest of thieves. How could he fail to steal even a single nut? A single nut?! This was, to put it lightly, nuts. He had once been lauded as the most terrifying thing walking under the eaves of the forest. Now look at him. Look at him! Ugh! No, don’t look at him, he’s disgusting, he’s less than the worms of the earth. They at least could gross people out. He might as well just chomp down on raspberries and call it a day. There was an inexplicably large pile of them just sitting there. Had it been left by someone? Had nature decided to be weird and pile a bunch of random stuff together? Were the gods playing a joke? He’d never had a raspberry. Never had anything really. A dead body doesn’t need to eat after all.

He eyed the red berries and considered them. If he chewed them in just the right way, he make it gory. He needed gore in his life. Not Gore, but gore.

He ran over the pile of raspberries and, not really understanding how eating berries worked, shoved his head haphazardly into the pile. If any one were observing him, he might look like an ostrich or an emu shoving their head into the sand. The berries were squishy and soft. They burst as soon as he tried to bite down on them. Soon there was so much raspberry gore all over him he could no longer see. He yanked (hahaha) his head out of the pile and grinned a creepy, willowy grin. Everything was covered in red with lumps of sticky berry flesh sticking to the sides of his cheeks, paws, and chest.

Hopefully this made him look terrifying again. He certainly felt more terrifying.

Monstrous squirrel zombie things needed to feel good about themselves too!

Three Raccoons

Well they were doing better once again and gaining in terms of how many nuts they had as Hob brought yet another nut back to their stash. Reginald was still struggling and Bob was doing his best to fend off the nasty squirrel that had attempted to steal not one but two nuts, he growled at them and stabbed at them running them off leaving them without any nuts. Hob nodded approvingly and threw a few insects at Reginald in an attempt to distract him from the nuts which were horribly off limits and frustrating, a delicate translucent wing of a flying beetle fluttered and landed on his nose causing him to go cross eyed and forgetting for a moment that he was trying to eat a nut that would not allow itself to be eaten.

he sat still for several moments his paws full of force fielded nuts that he did not want to put down so instead he attempted to lick the wing off the top of his nose. It did not go well, he wandered about struggling the entire time abandoning the nuts as he wandered, Bob putting them back in the pile so that he would be able to defend them easier while Reginald stumbled about cross eyed attempting to lick the lacey wing off of the top of his nose. He wanted to try the bug wing so bad but wasn't able to eat it he wondered if it was crunchy he hoped it was crunchy.

Hob shook his head seeing what his brother was doing and headed off to nab at least one more nut from Tevildo...

Mister Black (Mirkwood Squirrel)

He had been unsuccessful, again. And his hopes for some kind of friendship, well, it hadn't happen. He would just have to try and pinch back his nuts from the little squirrel that still had then. He might search out the Three Raccoons if he felt homesick again. Suddenly he had the urge to eat, He headed off to the feasting field. The Three Raccoons were there and the zombie looking creature. He decided to have one of the mushrooms, something he rarely ate unless he was starving.
Sometime later, Mister Black could be seen staring at the bark of a certain birch tree. He had been doing this for hours. The bark on the tree appeared to be changing colors from blue to green and pink and orange, yellow and purple and a multitude of other colors. The black squirrel was totally transfixed by this phenomenon. He just stood there, nose twitching in a relaxed way, happy as can be. It was like, magic......

Skwovet, Large and In Charge

“Skwoh! Skwovet Skwoh Skwovet!” (Tr: “I’ll be back for your nuts, you mark my words!”)

Skwovet shook a paw at the big cat. She had failed, for the time being, to steal its nuts. The little skwirrel narrowed her eyes and gazed around at all the various creatures running about and stealing stuff from each other. She scowled, then sighed. Times like these called for drastic action.

Skwovet skuttled over to the feast. She had partaken of plum and seeds so far. Now, however, she had a thirst. Her latest efforts (and bout of shouting) had left her parched. She sniffed at some wide bowls of liquid. Nothing too foul, though at the rate she was turning cold and veiny-faced, something foul might be nice. Still, she lapped up a large amount of the ent draught, then lay down on a large spongy mushroom cap for a bit of rest.

Skwovet awoke to the mushroom cap collapsing beneath her. “Skwoh????” She rolled off it and saw to her surprise that the crushed mushroom cap was no bigger than her head, where before it had been large enough to be a bed. “Skwovet??” (Tr: “What??”) Was this a magical shrinking mushroom? She looked around and gasped. She was bigger than the cat now!

She reveled in her newfound stature. “Skwovet! Skwovet Skwoh!” The more of her there was, the more evil she could do. The more of her there was, the more nuts she could steal, presumably by simply stomping on the other, smaller critters or kicking them out of her way. She stomped on a grasshopper to test her strength. She kicked a chipmunk in the face and cackled as it flew into a cluster of thorny bushes. Then she set off to steal some nuts from a tiny little skwirrel.

Dart the nuthatch of 18 nuts
A bird bath! Dart landed on the edge of a bowl of Ent-draught (perhaps not the one same one Skwovet enjoyed and tainted with her startling red eyes and rascally ways) and dipped his beak in. Yum, yum, how very refreshing it was and so different from the usual water he drank...

There was still some sticky honey left in some of his feathers so he hopped right into the bowl and began to have a bath. He splished and splashed and dipped his little striped head into the lovely fresh bath and swallowed (intentionally or not) beak-fuls of Ent-draught at the same time. Beads of water laced his slatey blue feathers until he shook them out and felt like a brand new nuthatch!

His beady little eye focused on Skwovet, Red-eyed Squirrel of the Many Stolen Nuts, and considered pilfering her stash until suddenly the squirrel was...not a squirrel? No, she was still a squirrel but she had grown very, very big. And then stomped on a chipmunk who looked exceptionally tiny to him.

Not only that, the other squirrels were looking smaller, too. And the trees. And the nuts, and those dead moths waiting to be eaten which did not look big enough to fill him up anymore. Wait a minute. Had Dart grown...bigger?

“Tereep?” He cocked his head to the side in confusion and stumbled around on gangly legs as if learning how to walk again in this taller body.

Square the Squirrel

Square groaned as the sunlight pierced her closed eyelids, arousing her from slumber. She felt very peculiar, and had quite forgotten where she was. She was surprised to see herself on the ground. She couldn't remember the last time she'd had a ground-nap. That was a dangerous hobby for a squirrel, and only the true adrenaline-junkies of the squirrel world, of which Square was not one, generally dared have ground-naps. She wondered if it was all those nuts falling on her head that had caused such a fatigue to hit her. Shrugging off the wave of tiredness, Square pushed herself back up into an upright position, just in time to see the Nuthatch make a dive for her nut pile!

"NO!!" Square hollered, diving in defence of her treasure hoard. She felt the tickle of feathers pass above her - she had only just got to the nut pile in time, and as a result, thankfully, the bird had been unsuccessful. Square shook her little fist at the bird, hoping to ward him off from trying his luck again. But then not a moment later, just as one attack on her nuts had ended, another began, this time the criminal was another squirrel!

But as Square saw the squirrel stomp over to her (for stomp it was - this was an unnaturally large squirrel!!), her eyes bulged at the size of her. What on earth was Square going to do against a squirrel this large? As far as she could see, there was only one thing for it - offence was the best form of defence, after all. She charged at the giant squirrel, and ran straight through her large legs, eyes firmly on the nut pile belong to her.

Mister Black (Mirkwood Squirrel)

Success, finally. With his two pinched nuts tucked into his cheeks, Mister Black dashed up his Willow and stuffed them into his already stuffed tree den. He then scooted back down and decided to try and be friends with the raccoons again and maybe , just maybe, discover where they hid their winter supply of food. It wasn't above him , especially at this time of year with a snow storm looming (he could smell it in the air), to steal from friends, foe, or kin. One had to survive. He would pay them back (not his foes, doh!) in the summer when food was in abundance. That was his logic, and he was sticking to it.

Tenebrous, the Corrupter – 20 Nuts

The raspberry gore covering seemed to do the trick. He was back on top. Yes, he had to share the title with the three raccoons, but these allies were useful right now, so he deemed them worthy enough to continue their existence, but only so far. If they continued be a pestilence in his quest for ultimate domination, he would deal with them the way any warlord would. He shook his head, clearing fantasy images of heads on spikes and a throne made of squirrel skulls. He had work to do. His long, pale, worm-like tongue slithered out and tasted the air. He felt back to his old self again, none of those ridiculous nut puns were invading his mind now. Clearly, he needed to stay in the lead to maintain his sense of self and sanity. If he became too burdened with nut puns rather than nuts there was no telling what might happen to him. He might decide to give up his quest for domination and control for a comedy troupe and a stage. Oh, the horror! He was a being of immense hunger, avaricity, and sanity blasting madness, but even he had to draw the line somewhere. A comedy troupe? What would his stage name be? Tenebrous, the Coconutter? Oh that was horrible. Stop thinking about! Stop! Kill them all and steal their nuts! AHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!

Dart the slightly larger, disproportionate nuthatch, 19 nuts
Dart spent quite a bit of time trying to learn how to balance his slightly larger body on wobbling legs. For some reason, it seemed the Ent-draught did not do anything to make his legs bigger and now he was very out of proportion...

He teetered around, using his oversized wings to stop himself falling over. This was all very strange. Dart almost wished he'd never left his cavity that morning. Even for the big nut pile. Somehow he still managed to steal a nut and add it to his stash.

Seeing the nice little squirrel he tried to steal from (Square) make a dash for the giant squirrel's pile, he took to the air (luckily his flight was not impacted by the ingestion of Ent-draught or the tiny legs-big body conundrum) and went in for another nut...

Three Raccoons

Success. It was something that seemed to happen more often than not for the three brothers in terms of gaining nuts. Thought they noticed that nasty mirkwood squirrel was back trying to steal nuts from them and Hob motioned to the squirrel to Bob to try to stop the little rodent. Rodents were such disgusting creatures. Hob waddled along noting where the willow twig squirrel was going. Hob sat back for a moment, watchin waiting. Indeed the brothers and the squirrel thing as horrible as rodents were were working together and thus far it seemed to be fairly mutually beneficial. Of course Hob was also very very much aware that the Mirkwood squirrel was away from their horde attempting to steal from the brothers once more and he debated on stealing from the squirrel in question.

No, for now they would honor the deal for now. Hopefully Bob would be able to hold off the squirrel in question.

Dawn of a New Alliance: The Adventures of Square & Treebeard, vol. I

Somehow, despite her nimble dart through the giant squirrel's legs, which Square had rather prided herself on, having never navigated between another animal's legs before, she failed to collect a single nut. Others were more successful in their endeavours, however, and Square was mightily amused to see that although the giant squirrel had indeed managed to steal some of Square's precious nuts (the audacity of it!), her nut pile remained the same size as when she left it, notwithstanding her nut-thievery from Square.

Square pointed, shaking with barely contained laughter, at the giant squirrel's nut pile. "See what happens what you take my nuts!" she called with mischievous glee, "that's karma for you, that is." Square haughtily declared, nodding sagely, before stalking off to her next potential victim.

Square glanced back to her nut pile, just to make sure she didn't need to go save it for the umpteenth time, and had to do an immediate double-take. How utterly peculiar! For there was now a rather large tree, planted right in the middle of the scene before here, and in the very place her little nut stash had been just moments ago. Square's little jaw fell open. Trees didn't just appear from thin air, even she knew that. She felt immediately disorientated; that couldn't possible have been where she left her nuts! But as she looked around with growing concern, she knew that it was. She dropped all plans to raid someone else's nuts, and bounded over to the tree to investigate further.

Looking down at her, was an old, solemn face, with bright eyes that looked older than the forest itself. "Hrum, Hoom," murmured a deep earthy voice, as Square landed on one of Treebeard's large, firmly planted feet. "Now, then. Why are we in such haste?" he asked, every word spoken was slow and unhurried. Square froze in her tracks, one foot raised in mid-air as she realised her mistake. This was no tree. She was not on a knot of roots, but an Ent's toe, no less!

"If you would be so kind, umm, sir?" Square asked (Square had never had much interaction with an Ent before, aside from occasionally being startled to find herself on one, at which point she always made a hurried exit off it, so she didn't really know how she ought to address him), "I would be most grateful if you could take a step back, for I think you might be stood on my nuts," she squeaked back at the top of her voice, for she wasn't sure her voice would carry quite as well as his, and he was a long, long way up into the sky. "Hmm. Hm, is that so?" he pondered, and for a moment Square was concerned he had actually fallen asleep. But after assessing the situation, Treebeard decided to shift his stance slightly, which revealed the (unbelievably) unflattened nut pile, which must have been just inches away from being squished into non-existence, but resolutely remained in tact, beside his footprint.

Square was simply delighted, and immediately a plan came to mind, "Oh sir, Mr Ent! You could look after my nuts for me! You see, lots of the mean critters around here are trying to steal them, and I was thinking, that if you just picked them up and held them, then that would probably work well enough to stop the others taking them, wouldn't it? No one else has an Ent on their side!"

This was all very hasty behaviour, and coming from a squirrel too, and squirrels, as a general rule, didn't usually pay him much heed. "Hrum Hoom. These nuts belong to the forest," Treebeard mused, "and I do not take sides, so I am not with you, or against you." At these words, Square looked truly crestfallen. "However, hmm hooom," Treebeard continued, "No, that would not be... improper, I should not think. No, it would not." Treebeard stooped, such as he could, so his face was much closer to Square's, "Tiny creature of Fangorn, I shall offer you my branches. You may dwell here, as I take my stroll. Yes, that will be helpful to you, I am sure".

Square couldn't really see how this would help her very much, but she was rather excited to be offered the opportunity. She stuffed as many of her nuts as she could into the nooks and crannies of the Ent's body, and then she clambered up his leg and settled in for the ride. As they slowly walked past the spot of the three raccoons, Square asked Treebeard to stop, which to her surprise, he did. She scampered back down his leg, and attempted to take a couple of nuts.

Square and Treebeard (he has unwittingly become an accessory to the potential crime) try to steal 2 nuts from the Three Raccoons.

Mister Black (Mirkwood Squirrel)

Yes he was scared, but what the hell. Winter had just dumped a load of snow all over the woods and food was getting hard to find. Some creatures just looked evil but deep down they had a small flame of goodness that burned ever so softly. A kind deed or word would surely make it burn bright. This was what Mister Black thought as he moved in a cautious and surreptitious manner, towards the pale, zombie looking squirrel, and in his best squirrel speak, utter three words so that it seem to come from somewhere else - "kuk kuk,quaa" "you are beautiful." Then he snuck in for the pinch.

The Three Raccoons

This was going well so far. So far they had amassed a fantastic amount of nuts. 7 each. Not that they could infact eat them. They needed to discuss how they were going to kill the Valar keeping them from eating said nuts with Tenebrous who they were currently allied with, though the strange willow squirrel would probably be a little angry that he was not in the lead. Who knew what their fragile alliance would do now that the balance of nuts was now tipped in the brothers favour.

Granted they might be willing to share if the squirrel helped them kill the valar so they could eat the nuts. After all at the moment they could do nothing and Bob was having a good number of interlopers attempting and so far being fended off from the stash of nuts. It seemed that at least one of the failed theives has moved onto someone else for the time being. With that Hob leaned over slightly so that he could grab another nut from Fwirls stash.

Tenebrous, the Corruption – 20 nuts

W… wait… what? Ignoring the ignominious fact that he had again failed to steal any nuts, what the heck just happened to him? The dead squirrel looked at the Mirkwood squirrel with a mixture of confusion, horror, fascination, intrigue, disgust, interest, annoyance, and a host of other emotions that were all contradictory and were all confusing. Had he heard that right? The squirrel called him beautiful? Tenebrous wasn’t beautiful! He was dead! D-E-D dead! Deader than shire! Dead as a doornail. Dead. Super dead. If there was such a thing as a blue screen of death, Tenebrous both was that screen and was experiencing that screen. He stared at the spot the squirrel was standing, not realizing that the squirrel had long since left that spot. He stared and stared and stared and stared.

Was he… beautiful?

Sure, he was ugly and dead and creepy and fully of willow trees and acted as a gateway to a realm where the willows were the supreme form of life. But…

Was he beautiful?

Could he have been wrong all this time? Might there be a chance for him, for Tenebrous?

Wait…

Wait…

He shook himself. The squirrel was gone. What? Huh?

A long, wormy tongue snaked out and licked his milky yellow eyeball. Was he seeing things? He looked across the whatever it was, expanse, field, clearing, whatever that didn’t matter, at the tree deicidal raccoons, his allies. He groaned. He was doomed. Dooooooooooooooomed! DOOOMED!

He was having trouble focusing. A lot of trouble, whatever remnants of his mind still working trying to piece out if he was in fact beautiful or not.


ARGH!! Stop it!

Just get some nucking futs… whatever you know what I mean, and get back on track!
