And here is another new fic for 20_rings, a double drabble.

Title: "The Wolf One Hears..."
Theme: Set #2, Theme #16, “A new road”
Genre (s): General
Pairing (s): N/A
Rating: G
Summary: Boromir ponders the Warg attack, and considers the way ahead of them… (a double drabble)

“THE WOLF ONE HEARS…”


We are to take a new road after all. After that attack by Wargs, there is little choice left. I am wondering, however, what dangers there are ahead of us that makes even so fell a warrior as Aragorn fearful.

I am reassured as to the mettle of my Companions. I have seen the power my father always suspected in Mithrandir with my own eyes. Though I could tell by their bearing that Aragorn and Legolas were experienced warriors, I have fought alongside them now. They are mighty indeed. As to Gimli, I knew not what to expect of a Dwarf--but his axe has proven a powerful weapon.

I am pleased with the hobbits. Though they struck no blow, they were prepared to do so. Merry and Pippin held their stances as I had taught them. Frodo and Sam followed their example. There had been no need to tell them to stand back to back--they seemed to do that instinctively. If one of the Wargs had broken through, I’ve no doubt they could have held it off long enough for one of us to finish it.

I hope this new road proves a more useful one, if not less perilous.

It's great to see Boromir's respect for his companions growing as he sees their "quality" with his own eyes.

Yes. I see Boromir as always observing, always assessing--his surroundings and his companions. He's watched them in Rivendell, and he's seen how valiantly they tackled the mountaing together. But fighting together is something else, and he's very pleased with how it turned out.

I like that idea--that the hobbits stand back to back instinctively. Very thought-provoking!

It's part of my view of what sort of creatures hobbits are: clannish and social, they very much have an instinct to protect one another, to stick together.

Really excellent. I can hear Boromir saying this.

Oh good! I do like doing Boromir's POV before the Ring has hold of him! Thank you!
