Title: Not All Those Who Wander Are Lost
Characters: Aragorn, Bilbo
Disclaimer: Middle-earth belongs to Tolkien and his heirs: I wander there for fun, not profit
Diving in quickly here since Bilbo and Aragorn have featured more than once already and I'm not convinced someone else won't think of this one soon...
Not All Those Who Wander Are Lost
"...so there you have all my tale, Bilbo." The lanky dark-haired Man takes a long pull at his tea, stretching endless legs once more towards the fire. "Dispossessed heir to a broken kingdom, wandering far from the lady I love..."
"A tale of much hardship, indeed - but it will all end well, one day," the Hobbit assures him, passing more seed-cake. "How could it not, for one the Elves named Estel?"
Only a rueful chuckle in response. Yet later, as he potters about his room tidying the tea-things, Bilbo begins murmuring to himself:
"All that is gold does not glitter..."
"I made that [rhyme] up myself for the Dunadan, years ago when he first told me about himself" - Bilbo, The Council of Elrond
