Trivial Pursuit: Sport and Leisure challenge - 'Springle-ring' : Kortirion

Title: Springle-ring
Author: Kortirion
Character: Strider, Gandalf and Hobbits
Rating: G
Source: Pre-Ring War - movie!verse
Disclaimer: Tolkien character’s… PJ’s dancing hobbits… Kortirion’s drabble.

Thumbs hooked into braces, elbows bent, then snapped smartly downwards to the heart-beat rhythm of the bass greathorn, the hobbit-lads strutted and bobbed in deceptively simple patterns, that nonetheless required real agility to master. Gaily beribboned lasses circled them, wrists fluttering their springles; above the head, then low, then high, weaving complex patterns of ribbons and sound.

Strider clapped along manfully, praying Gandalf wouldn’t push him into joining the hobbits dancing in Butterbur’s yard…. It wasn’t so much losing his dignity, he was more frightened he’d topple over and squash one.

“Don’t worry,” Gandalf whispered, “Chicken-dancing, isn’t for me either!”
