Assorted Drabbles: 12. He Stands Not Alone

"Now is the last chance," Mithrandir shouts. "Run for it!"


Run, or be forever entombed in darkness: we cannot get out...Aragorn has Frodo; Merry and Pippin sprint before him, Sam follows-


Something about the shape of the air behind me makes me look round: no Dwarf. There the fool stands yet as though carved from the stone of his forefather's tomb.


Doom, doom. Afterwards I do not remember choosing. I turn, run, lunge as black-mailed orcs crowd in again; I have him -


Not till we pause at the next stair's foot does he look up, panting.


"My thanks, Elf."

 Elena Tiriel's birthday drabble.


"The others followed; but Gimli had to be dragged away by Legolas: in spite of the peril he lingered by Balin's tomb with his head bowed." FoTR, The Bridge of Khazad-Dum. Oh, and Gandalf's opening line is a direct lift from that chapter.

Elena Tiriel's favorite drabbles (vignettes of precisely 100 words), drabble multiples, or drabble series from Tolkien fanfic; a very personal and eclectic list of drabbles at HASA that have touched me in some way. See Inspiring Stories for a list of favorite stories of other types.

Why This Story?

See Olórin I was in my Youth in the West that is Forgotten; a perfect gem of a drabble with hauntingly beautiful language.
