How a wizard boxed the Old Took's ears and have him meet my mother, by Belladonna Took.

 A tribute to Tolkien, revisiting his exercices in style: an altercation on a Shire porch, hobbits, giants, dunedain, goblins, elves, ents, trolls, eagles, a visit to Imladris, skin-changers, an epic story about duty and fate, riddles,… and a ring!
