Gandalf the Grey and His Daemon by LJ-Todd Gandalf the Grey and His Daemon by LJ-Todd
More The Hobbit daemon!AU art.

Blurb about Gandalf and his barred owl daemon, Archimedes:

"Stupid rain! Stupid complaining Dwarves! And stupid wizards who think they know what the hell they're doing!"

Gandalf tried to ignore his daemon's mutterings but after hours of listening to nothing but Archimedes' grouching the wizard had finally had enough. "Yes," he snapped suddenly, turning his head enough to glare at his daemon, who was perched on his shoulder, soaked from the rain. "And stupid little owls who don't know when to shut their beaks!"

Archimedes jerked at that, gaze narrowing as he tried to fluff himself up, failing due to his feathers being drenched. "You...You..." The little daemon shook his head, looking away, back towards Bilbo, who was looking at the bushes to his left, smiling slightly. "I think your Hobbit is cracked."

Gandalf glanced back, smiling knowingly. "At least someone enjoys the rain."

Before Archimedes could respond to that one of the Dwarves began complaining about the rain again. "Stupid Dwarf," the little owl daemon muttered, trying in vain to shake some of the rain from his feather.


Archimedes is a Greek name meaning "pondering"

Pretty sure everyone said it before me, but Archimedes reminds me a lot of his homonym in the Sword in the Stone ^^

I love your daemon series, they're all very well thought and I can only enjoy the bit of text that goes with each one to know more about them :=)

Archimedes: Mmm...it seems I'll be having field mouse tonight.

Gandalf: Oh no you don't. Not Ori's daemon.

Archimedes: Oooh...pinfeathers and...gully fluff!

Archimedes: Well, we'll just see if this Hobbit will come with us on this journey.

Gandalf: And you will, Archimedes. You will.

Archimedes: And why do you guess that Bilbo Baggins is the perfect choice as the burglar, Gandalf?

Gandalf: I am NOT...guessing, Archimedes, I know that he is.

Very ironic. Another wizard, Merlin, had an owl named Archimedes. That's very clever, too.

I'm glad though that this Archimedes isn't as smart mouthed as Merlin's, else Gandalf would have gone like this...

Gandalf: Archimedes...I'll find me another owl.

Archimedes: Hmph! You wouldn't dare.

Gandalf: I will. So help me, I will.

lol, yeah, Gandalf's Archimedes had several personality changes before I settled on one. And to be honest he started out pretty much just like Merlin's before I realized it and quickly changed it.
