Recollections of a Dunedain Ranger by Hanasian

Rated R
[Reviews - 1]
Table of Contents

The Dunedain Rangers were mysterious and secretive folk who lived in the wilds of the lost Kingdom of Arnor. They were for the most part well educated in the ways of their fathers and the Edain of old, and learned much from the Noldor who dwelt in Imladris.

Thirty Rangers answered the call to ride south to aid their Chieftain in the War, riding under the command of Halbarad. These are their stories...

How a wizard boxed the Old Took's ears and have him meet my mother, by Belladonna Took.

I use the strict interpretation of a drabble . . . being a work of exactly 100 words.  Having said that, mine cover everything from the Sil. to ROTK and every emotion from fluff to high angst.  So dip in and read a few, then come back and read a few more.
