Table of Contents

It’s the first Yule since Bilbo left the Shire. Merry cannot bear to see Frodo so glum and now his older cousin is refusing to come celebrate Yule at Brandy Hall. Merry has come up with a plan that he’s not certain he’ll be able to carry out. He enlists Pippin’s help, but events take an odd turn and the outcome holds a few surprises for him as well as everyone else.

Rated G
[Reviews - 0]
Table of Contents

For the LOTR Community Challenge's Yule Exchange challenge. -- Dreamflower’s request was: I would like to see Bilbo’s Yule at Beorn’s house. (I’ve done one myself but I’d love to see another!) ---- On the way home from his adventure, Bilbo, with his friends Gandalf and Beorn, arrive at Beorn’s home in mid-winter. They will be there for Yule and into the spring and Bilbo has some questions about what the holiday and the rest of their stay might be like. He gets some pleasant answers and supplies some good will of his own.

A Simple Task Gone Awry by Pearl Took

Rated G
[Reviews - 1]
Table of Contents

Written for the December 2008 LOTR Community Challenge's Yule Exchange. -- Mattygirl requested: I would like a story that involves Frodo angst, during the quest. Basically, I just want Frodo to be hurt or sick and Aragorn and the others (but especially Aragorn) to get him better again. It can be as long and draw out as the writer likes. -- Frodo is wanting to do for himself instead of being the pampered Ringbearer, but when his efforts go awry, the rest of the Company of the Ring jump to conclusions.
