Notes: I had an idea for just_ann_now’s nascent anniversary – ie: cooking, Mag, Boromir, Theodred, fire-works…and that other old bird - this isn’t quite what I planned, but I’ll post it and you can flame me later! If you like it, Ann – IOU the full version!

But... those fire-works were so wonderful – he’d never seen anything like...

Crash!Slap! Stars exploded behind his eyes.
