CG, you are causing various reactions this morning.

I had just finished breakfast, was working my way through TORn, and snorted at "spleen". Then I read your thoughts and quotes about Theoden and Merry and suddenly I was in big, sloppy tears. The Professor and Gramma and you have conspired to awaken the weeping woman of Wellington. Evil But it's ok because, well, you know, "not all tears...."

I really like the Merry-Theoden relationship, however briefly it gets touched on. They formed a strong and unlikely bond, and it apparently influenced Merry for the rest of his life, given his scholarly pursuits:

Merry could not speak, but wept anew. ‘Forgive me, lord,’ he said at last, ‘if I broke your command, and yet have done no more in your service than to weep at our parting.’

The old king smiled. ‘Grieve not! It is forgiven. Great heart will not be denied. Live now in blessedness; and when you sit in peace with your pipe, think of me! For never now shall I sit with you in Meduseld, as I promised, or listen to your herb-lore.’

‘Well,’ answered Merry slowly. ‘He is dead. It has brought it all back to me. He said he was sorry he had never had a chance of talking herb-lore with me. Almost the last thing he ever said. I shan’t ever be able to smoke again without thinking of him, and that day, Pippin, when he rode up to Isengard and was so polite.’
