In my-verse Pippin has a particularly hard time returning home, as his father and mother seem intent on trying to force him to be as he was before his journey outside the Shire. Merry is justifiably concerned for his younger cousin's happiness. But how can one explain properly how and why Pippin's changed so?

A Horse is a Horse of Course by Dreamflower

Rated G
[Reviews - 1]
Table of Contents

Boromir recalls part of his journey north to Imladris to Merry and Pippin as they float down the Anduin.
`I have myself been at whiles in Rohan, but I have never crossed it northwards. When I was sent out as a messenger, I passed through the Gap by the skirts of the White Mountains, and crossed the Isen and the Greyflood into Northerland. A long and wearisome journey. Four hundred leagues I reckoned it, and it took me many months; for I lost my horse at Tharbad, at the fording of the Greyflood. After that journey, and the road I have trodden with this Company, I do not much doubt that I shall find a way through Rohan, and Fangorn too, if need be.' (FotR, Book II, Chapter VIII "Farewell to Lórien") . My thanks to Shirebound for finding this quote for me!
