Charcter: The Fellowship
Disclaimer: Tolkien’s subject matter, Kortirion’s little joke.
Legolas made his own arrangements, away from prying eyes… no matter how hard some pried! Gimli obstinately refused to divest himself… simply plunging into pools fully-dressed, apparently drying his clothes from the inside out by body heat.
Which left four hobbits, two men, and a wizard… not that much laundry, but someone, on rare occasions when it was possible, had to do it. At Gandalf’s instigation it became ‘punishment duty’… soon a regular task for the two youngest.
Pip washed, Merry rinsed…
“I don’t know WHAT those men get up to!” muttered Pip, scrubbing some under-drawers.
Merry rolled his eyes.
