Written for the September 2008 LOTR Community Challenge's Young/Old challenge ----
Pippin is feeling out of sorts. An elderly Hobbit helps him to think through his troubles.
Table of Contents
The year is 1410. Pippin is 20. Ferumbras Took, The Took and Thain, is 94 and will die in 5 years so there is talk already in the Tookland of Paladin [Pippin’s father] becoming The Took and Thain of the Shire when Ferumbras dies. An OC I’ve created for this story - Cousin Isembold II (b. 1310, 6 years older than Ferumbras) - has died and it is his funeral that has sparked Pippin’s thinking.
