Disclaimer: Tolkien built the sandbox, I only play with the bucket and shovel that he left for me. No money, profit or non, is made from the publication of this story.


Running through the underbrush, heedless of the whipping branches and slashing thorns, Elladan tripped over a half-buried root, falling hard against the ground. Elrohir quickly reached out, helping him up before continuing their dash.

“Will we be on time?” gasped Elladan as he followed his brother into the clearing.

“It's going to be by a hairs-breadth,” growled Elrohir, “with no time to bathe.”

Their boots echoed on the flagstones of the entryway. “Halt! Late or not, you mud-puppies WILL bathe before dining,” Glorfindel commanded. “Make it quick, but thorough. I expect you back here for inspection within half a candlemark.”
