Haldir cursed, he realised he should have braced himself against this onslaught; he should have known what would happen. It was the smell, the hot, sweaty miasma that hung around them; one was pungent enough, but an unwashed mass...? The Marchwarden knew he should be used to it, but he’d always gagged at that distinctive combination of stables, pig-pen and malt-house.

Many years before, Celeborn had forced him to confront one close-up; although thoroughly scrubbed, the smell made Haldir recoil.

“You must get used to the physical contact”, Celeborn had chided.

Aragorn hugged him enthusiastically... stunned, Haldir could only... smile.
