‘Oh no, Gimli! You didn’t! Did you….?’

‘It was your own suggestion, laddie, and I always do as the king commands!’

But shrugging his shoulders and shuffling uncomfortably where he stood, the dwarf knew he was guilty. Guilty and also decidedly neater - his hair was somewhat shorter, his beard certainly tidier, his eyebrows marginally less tangled.

‘You said I should give it a go, instead of using my knife’ he mumbled.

The queen glowered at the dwarf, glared at her husband, tapped her foot impatiently.

Aragorn groaned.

Yes, Gimli. But I didn’t mean you to use Arwen’s best embroidery scissors!’
