Faces Challenge - 'Wink'

Title: Welcome Wagon
Author: Huinárë
Characters/Pairing: Gandalf, Saruman, Radagast
Rating: G
Warnings: N/A
Book/Source: Unfinished Tales
Disclaimer: Characters belong to Tolkien. No profit reaped by myself, aside from a wealth of intellectual giddiness.

Summary: Saruman dislikes housewarming (er, tower-warming) parties. ‘Wink’ challenge.


Radagast hopped down as the cart trundled to a stop. “We’ve brought the welcome wagon.”

“You needn’t have,” Saruman grumbled.

“Nonsense.” Gandalf began unloading the cart without further preamble. “Saruman the Wise taking up residence at Angrenost–a momentous event! One that calls for fireworks of many colors.”

Radagast proffered a black bird. “A housewarming gift, Curunír. Fledgling crebain. They are clever, like you, as you’ll see if you raise them patiently.”

“I have no use for birds, nor for many colors,” Saruman pronounced blandly.

Gandalf winked at the faintly crestfallen Radagast and rejoined irrepressibly, “So you say now, Saruman.”
