New challenge (New Clothes), Packing to Leave, by Kaylee Arafinwiel

Title: Packing to Leave
Author: Kaylee Arafinwiel
Characters: Aragorn II, Elladan, Elrohir (the twins are present, but silent)
Rating: G
Warnings: none
Book/Source: LOTR
Disclaimer: Tolkien provided little information about the last Chieftain of the Dunedain's departure from Imladris to rejoin his people. I've just gone with my own interpretation.
A/N: A short prequel to "Aragorn in the North".

2951 T.A., Imladris

Estel – no, Aragorn – stared as those who had been his brothers helped him to pack his gear. No more was he to walk arrayed in the rich fabrics the Imladrin elves wore. Of course, even they chose hunting leathers as proof against the elements and arrows of yrch – the coarse cloth and leather armour he had grown used to over the past five years. Still…

Aragorn picked up the tunic of soft doeskin. The fringes slid through his fingers; he frowned, uncertain, setting it down again. Matching leggings, kilt, and soft shoes... could he get used to these new clothes?
