Remember that drabble meme?  Ages ago?  No?  Not surprised, but rest assured, I still remember it and remember all the challenges everyone issued, including this one from [livejournal.com profile] inzilbeth_liz :  "Umm, how about, Aragorn [obviously!] and Tom Bombadil! You know how much I want to write this fic myself but I'd love to see something from you."  

So... here you go, Liz, and just in time for your birthday!  And as is somewhat sad habit with me and this meme and my general suckishness at math, I eschewed the 100-word rule and wrote a ficlet instead, because I was too lazy to bother with counting, and moreover, 100 words couldn't tell the tale.

It feels like it's been ages, but I finally have a smallish 3-chapter fic to post.  If you remember, I've been working at that drabble meme and had a story for [livejournal.com profile] shirebound  about Pippin thanking Strider for getting them safely to Rivendell.  And I also have a request from [livejournal.com profile] suzll  (Suz, you're Minerva Organa at SoA, right?) for a story about Merry & Aragorn.  After I posted the initial Pippin & Strider ficlet, the wheels started turning and a longer story grew out of both requests.  It's not hugely long, just three chapters, a bit of a gapfiller.  The first version of chapter 1 I posted here, under the title "Blisters, Bruises and Healing Balm", but I've since modified it a bit to fit into the larger story.

I'll also post the story at SoA and NaN: 

"The Riddle of Strider" at Stories of Arda

He shepherded them all the way to Rivendell... but do they really have any idea who this mysterious Strider is? A gapfiller in three chapters. For Shirebound and Minerva Organa, whose requests provided the inspiration for this.

Yes, I'm still working my way through them!  This one is for [livejournal.com profile] shirebound , who wanted a story about one of the Hobbits thanking Strider for getting them safely to Rivendell.

I'm posting this a bit early, because you never know what RL is going to do.  I'm killing two birds with one stone with this, as [livejournal.com profile] estelcontar1 , in response to the drabble meme (yes, I'm still working on them), had requested a drabble set in Annúminas, with Elessar and his family.  Here you go, my friend.  Enjoy, and may you have a wonderful birthday!

Drabble - 100 words since I used poetic license for "windsong" *g*

A summer idyll...


Aragorn pulled off his shirt and stretched, a mighty yawn nearly cracking his jaw.  He laid back on the grassy bank, leaving his bare feet dangling in the water.   Eyes shut.  Mind drifting. Watching sunlight and shade dapple the inside of his lids. 

Heard laughter-splashed shrieks of children.  Birds and grasshopper buzz and windsong. 

Drifted, drowsing...

Then a footfall beside him, swishing against the grass.  An arm draped across his chest, a foot touched his.   Her voice velvet soft, “I love Annúminas, my Elessar... but I love you more.” 

She kissed him and he smiled lazily, never opening his eyes.

[livejournal.com profile] curiouswombat  asked for a conversation between Celeborn and Gandalf.  So here 'tis!



My Heart Will Be Glad
Rating:  G

Galadriel was happy enough to play matchmaker but what of Celeborn?  A conversation between two wise old friends that might have taken place at some point between Aragorn and Arwen's midsummer moment upon Cerin Amroth and the events in Lord of the Rings.  A  true drabble.

~~~~

“But is he worthy?”

“More worthy than all others.  And if not, then such discovery will render all of your concerns moot.”

“She is my granddaughter, Gandalf.  And he is a mortal.”

“I recall another such union working out well enough.”

Celeborn’s eyes glinted.  “I am tempted to chop off this young pup’s hand to match.”

Gandalf laughed.  “Let him keep his hand.  He will undoubtedly need it.”

A sigh.  “Galadriel shares your certainty.  And therefore so shall I.”  He raised his glass and smiled.  “The world will be saved, and Arwen will wed, and my heart will be glad.”
