Footwear challenge: Slipper: 'Sweet Talking'

Title: Sweet Talking
Characters: Estel, Gilraen
Rating: G
Source: Pre-Ring War
Disclaimer: Tolkien’s characters, Kortirion’s little thought


His mother had sniffed a little dismissively the first time he’d worn them, but he liked them, they were comfortable.

Only house thralls wear felt slippers!

The inference being… real Rangers wore leather… be it cow-hide boots or Elvish-style fine goatskin leggings… they didn’t wear boiled wool like a common floor-polisher.

Estel sighed, pointing out that these were of elven make… even if the Elves in question were Avari from the North…

“See? The fine embroidery, the intricate braid? They all wear house-slippers like these beyond Lune, they’re very fashionable.”

“Fashionable?”

“Yes, Mother. I saw them and thought of you.”
