Just a drabble ('cause the drabble thread peramulated). Can't Post

  The glade off the road was tranquil. The soft sounds from the grass and wood held no sign of alarm.
They sat quietly hand in hand where once the skirmish occurred. They were on a family outing sailing across the the beautiful Anduin followed with travel by horseback. His intent was to was to open his sons horizons to the land in which he lived.
He called to him playing and took him by hand to the spot. "Son", he said, "this is the last good standing Mumakil footprint, whose presence is still a mystery".
Elboron of six years stood in wonder.

"Tolkien, like Lewis, believed that, through story, the real world would become a more magical place, full of meaning. We see its patterns and colors in a fresh way. The recovery of a true view of the world applies both to individual things, like hills and stones, and to the cosmic - the depths of space and time itself. For in sub-creation, in Tolkien's view, there is a "survey" of space and time. Reality is captured on a miniature scale. Through stories like The Lord of the Rings, a renewed view of things is given, illuminating the homely, the spiritial, the physical, and the moral dimensions of the world."

Lovely drabble, silneldor. Had to look up Elboron too. Him I found.

My guess is [In reply to] Can't Post

that the spell checker doesn't check subject lines, just the body of the post.

(I just did a couple of quick tests, and that seems to be the case.)

A peaceful reflection [In reply to] Can't Post

of a time of war; it's why we take kids to battlegrounds and memorials, so the next generations will not forget these things. And the heroes of LotR would be no exception.

Thank you for this moment, when future meets past!

     The spray from the diving bow momentarily appeared rainbow hued. With the sound of wind, water and sail, she saw then the sameness of her men; the reflection of thought, and strength of spirit. "This fortnight trip is only a beginning" he said. She could see the devotion and love in his eyes for his son. She felt through that love, her son would one day flourish.

The pier drew close and as expected, she saw the two kindred spirits agreeing to join them; Gimli holding the bow rope, Legolas the stern. Elboron vaulted headlong into their arms embracing them.

LOL - that's right! [In reply to] Can't Post

I know that I tend to forget about those two; of course, Legolas relocated to Ithilien!

What a fortunate child, to have also Elves and Dwarves for friends!

Drabble#3 [In reply to] Can't Post

 He had awoke just before light when the first bird sang. Excitement rose from anticipation. So much to experience! The river, hills, streams and forests with horses sent down by King Eomer himself!
So it was as senses were still reeling from the great river passage, someone stood there new and grand holding the host of horses. Father embraced and spoke to him. The man deft of movement, turned and approached him. Father many times told him of honor and respect and he found himself bowing.
The man bowed and smiled. "I am Elfhelm, I am at your service".

Drabble #4 (Final) [In reply to] Can't Post

  OF all outings planned, this one was special. With his son, the crossroads celebration to honor its rebirth will be remembered always. He smiled. Traveling south on the road upon fifty horses they heard horns, then music with minstrals voices floating on the breeze. Over the rise, ancient trees, a profusion of new trees, flowers beds everywhere and many people appeared.
Greeted by Prince Imrahil and the guard, he announced,"Welcome, King Elessar awaits you "
A young boy shot out ,"Elboron, welcome!" exclaimed Eldarion.
Another slightly larger figure appeared, "Well met Elboron! I am Peregrin Took. But Pippin to youSmile".


(Sorry, i could not resist the smiley face at the end.)

The first drabble was not centered on the perspective of a person but the other three were. I thought that I would sneak in on you all with a grand fanfic event on the fourth drabble.
As I am sure you can tell, the events unfolding, center around Faramir, Eowyn and their son Elboron from their home in Emyn Arnen approximately 3027.
I thought it would be interesting to have them sail the 80 miles to the spot of the Mumikil print and then travel by horseback 50 miles south to the crossroads. I will let you envision the sailing vessel.

I know Gimli spent much time in Gondor and Rohan working with his craft, after becoming Lord of the Glittering Caves. And Legolas came to dwell in Ithilien. And from what I can gather Elfhelm survived the WR, the last word being he held back to defend Anorien with the Rohirrim during the Captains of the West march on the black gate. So as a surprise it would be neat to have Elfhelm escort their party of twenty (!) south on the road. I would expect Beregond and his guard to be present at all times with Faramir. I figure Elfhelm would have volunteered to meet them at the pier for King Eomer.

I know it was said the Crossroads of the Fallen King was rebuilt during the WR, but was not when Frodo and Sam passed there March 10, 3019. So it would have to had been started after the fall of Barad-Dur when members of the Army of the west could be spared. It would be nice to think that the fallen king was newly made in the likeness of King Elessar.

The gala or celebration would be for the continuing revival of the land toward Mordor, where perhaps the two towers of the Morgul Pass (my desire) could be reclaimed to their original beauty.It is unknown to me when Elboron and Eldarion would have been born so i made them approximently the same age.

Pippin, it is known that he visited Gondor on many occasions. Merry visited Rohan too so perhaps he is presently at King Eomer's side.

Prince Imrahil I believe to be alive and well. Eomer in their arrival I assume to be with King Elessar, perhaps with his wife Lothiriel (daughter of Prince Imrahil) and young son Elfwine the Fair.

It is fun to envision the development of their lives in times of peace. I am trying still to 'see' Faramir's new home.

Please give me your thoughts or envisionings here. I would like to thank you for your comments, and Wynnie your help. I am hopeless with computers (way too obvious[Unsure).

Also my apologies to Altaira, for I know now this was supposed to be in the fanfic section,,, I think.

Wow, a quadruple-drabble! [In reply to] Can't Post

Considering what dark times most of those characters had gone through, it's nice to imagine them enjoying the well-earned years of peace.

I've enjoyed your little drabble series (and I keep picturing Elboron looking like sil-junior). Thanks!

Aha! I wondered [In reply to] Can't Post

whether there was a special occasion!

What a great way to tie into their post-LotR lives. I can easily imagine Eldarion and Elboron being childhood friends!

Thank you for working all this out - 'tis no small task!
