Table of Contents

Written for the LOTR Community Challenge, Aug.2008 "POV" challenge. Movie version, based on an idea I came up with while trying to help Cathleen do some brain storming for her challenge story. After I finished describing it, she said she loved it . . . but that I had to be the one to write it. I will be using her elements of: Silver, 3, Sphere.

What honor can there be for Gondorian livery having to be worn by a Hobbit?
