It's time for a bit more BS! [In reply to] Can't Post

Here's the last of a 7 part Book Spoiler of Beregond's first meeting with Pippin in Minas Tirith... for a moment of Tolkien-zen.

Minas Tirith: Book V: Return of the King

"So they talked until the sun reached its height, and suddenly the noon-bells were rung, and there was a stir in the citadel; for all save the watchmen were going to their meal.
'Will you come with me?' said Beregond. 'You may join my mess for this day. I do not know to what company you will be assigned… …But you will be welcome. And it will be well to meet as many men as you may, while there is yet time.'
'I shall be glad to come,' said Pippin. 'I am lonely, to tell you the truth. I left my best friend behind in Rohan, and I have had no one to talk to or jest with. Perhaps I could really join your company? Are you the captain? If so, you could take me on, or speak for me?'
'Nay, nay,' Beregond laughed, 'I am no captain… …but a plain man of arms of the Third Company of the Citadel….'
…so Pippin went with Beregond and was made known to the men of the Third Company…
…it seemed that Beregond got as much honour from it as his guest, for Pippin was very welcome.
There had already been much talk in the citadel about Mithrandir's companion and his long closeting with the Lord; and rumour declared that a Prince of the Halflings had come out of the North to offer allegiance to Gondor and five thousand swords… …some said that when the Riders came from Rohan each would bring behind him a halfling warrior, small maybe, but doughty.
Though Pippin had regretfully to destroy this hopeful tale, he could not be rid of this new rank… …fitting, men thought, to one befriended by Boromir and honoured by the Lord Denethor… …they thanked him for coming among them, and hung on his words and stories of the outlands, and gave him as much food and ale as he could wish. Indeed his only trouble was to be 'wary' according to the counsel of Gandalf, and not to let his tongue wag freely after the manner of a hobbit among friends.
At length Beregond rose. 'Farewell for this time..! …I have duty now till sundown, as have all the others here, I think. But if you are lonely, as you say, maybe you would like a merry guide about the City. My son would go with you gladly… …You will find him there with other lads that are remaining in the City. There may be things worth seeing down at the Great Gate ere the closing.'"
