4. Third Age - Battle of Five Armies - Good

Title: News From The North
Age: Third Age - Battle of Five Armies
PoV: Third Person Objective
Other Characters: Ecthelion, Denethor

“Father!” Denethor burst into the citadel, thrusting leaves of parchment at a frowning Steward. “Read the news the messenger has brought from Lake-Town!”

Ecthelion shuffled through the four pages of the message, skimming the words and mumbling quietly to himself. Suddenly he broke into a wide smile.

“This indeed is good news!” He handed the letter back to Denethor. “That old worm was interfering with our shipments of Dorwinion from the north.”

“Shall we have a celebration, then?” Denethor’s smile rivaled that of any young boy faced with the prospect of a party.

Ecthelion ruffled his son’s hair. “Most certainly.”

Title: Untitled
Age: Third Age - Battle of the Five Armies
PoV: First Person - Aragorn
Other Characters: Elrohir, Gandalf, Dwarves, Bilbo Baggins

I was ten the first time I saw a Hobbit.

I remember it vividly. Elrohir and I were having a swordfight and I was winning. Gandalf came to Imladris with a company of Dwarves. That Gandalf, he always traveled with the strangest crowd.

Then I saw him, lagging behind the last, rather large dwarf. He was not a dwarf, for he had no beard, and he went barefoot, displaying the hairiest feet I had ever seen.

Who would have guessed that one of them would save the world seventy five years later, and that I would travel with his Company?
