I don't think you hate it, I think you're having a good time. You sent me a PM wanting to know why I hadn't posted a reply, :? I mean, really? To me it follows that you want people to keep on a conversation with you regardless.

I don't think your comments about errors are dimwitted, I think they are superfluous.

Btw, I forgot those things Mr Nutt wasn't very good at. I don't really care that I forgot either.

happy reading :)

Ah well, fair enough though.

That animation of yours? What's going on there?

Rockin' to a beat only she can hear :lol:

I had seen it used around and thought it was strangely hypnotic.

Everything he tries he not only succeeds at, no, he also reaches heights noone before reached. He impresses everyone (except the bad guys). Everyone (again, except for the bad guys) loves/admires him in the end. For his wisdom, for his skills.

Nutt opens the ladder too loudly, can't hold it correctly, then traps Smeems' knuckles in it as he closes it.


Congratulations, Meebs! You finally got Pooh to come out of the Pooh Pit! :D

You're not a big reader, are you J-I*b? :dance:

a. Meeps has left the forum :o

b. You just asked Raptor about his sig. If you look at three posts above this one you'll see Sister Jen asked the same question. And if you look at the previous page of this thread, you'll see I also asked the same question. :dance:

Do try to keep up. :lol:

Anything that I said in the last two pages of this thread pales into insignificance when compared with what other members of this forum have said to Meeps. 8-)

Anyhoos, as I stated before, I liked Meeps coz she wound everybody up. :dance:

People long ago stopped taking Pooh seriously. Heck, we all drove him away from awhile, but we all knew he'd be back. He just can't 'bear' to be away from us. Same with Meebs. She'll lick her wounds and come back like she always does. :D

Have I missed something? I thought Pepe was human.
I think you're right. After thinking about it some more, I think that Pepe is a short human or a human with dwarfism.


I have a different theory, for which there is very little evidence except more theory...
Does anybody else remember that back in Moving Pictures there were elves working in Holy Wood?
And that in one of the Witch stories Granny Weatherwax said yes, there were cross-breeds of elves and humans who mostly sunburned easily and giggled a lot, but were nothing compared to the real, nasty kind of elves?
I think Pepe is an elf-human cross-breed.
Pepe is working with the dwarfs to make magical chain mail clothing that is considered by most readers to refer to Tolkien's mithril armor, made by elves.
Terry has been known to criticize Tolkien for making the orcs utterly evil with no possibility of redemption.
And while Terry has created a way for orcs (best known from Tolkien despite the popularity of later games) to be rehabilitated, he has also created a being who has some of the nastiness of the elves while also having the ability to live and work with dwarfs and even humans, and who takes steps to deal with the human who behaves like the full-blooded elves, at least partly to protect the humans he has been working with. I think that Pepe is Terry's way of rehabilitating his own "evil race with no redeeming qualities" - the elves.

Welcome to the site, =Tamar.

And let me be among the first to say your theory is completely bonkers. :lol:

No, it is an interesting idea, but given that Pterry has defined the elves as being a race of "dream-makers" who live in another parallel dimension, are essentially unintelligent, unable to change, unable to learn, don't care about humans, and don't create anything useful, the notion of a half-elf Pepe doesn't really fly.
