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 shirebound
about Pippin thanking Strider for getting them safely to Rivendell. And I also have a request from 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"The Riddle of Strider" at Naice a Nilme
"The Riddle of Strider"
Rating: GHe 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.
