Assorted Drabbles: 20. Not All Those Who Wander Are Lost

Originally written for the LiveJournal tolkien_weekly "Mealtimes: Teatime" challenge.



Not All Those Who Wander Are Lost



"...so there you have all my tale, Bilbo." The lanky dark-haired Man takes a long pull at his tea, stretching endless legs once more towards the fire. "Dispossessed heir to a broken kingdom, wandering far from the lady I love..."

"A tale of much hardship, indeed - but it will all end well, one day," the Hobbit assures him, passing more seed-cake. "How could it not, for one the Elves named Estel?"

Only a rueful chuckle in response. Yet later, as he potters about his room tidying the tea-things, Bilbo begins murmuring to himself:

"All that is gold does not glitter..."

"I made that [rhyme] up myself for the Dunadan, years ago when he first told me about himself" - Bilbo, The Council of Elrond

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.
