Hey Anglachel!
I really enjoyed this story, and the relationship between the hobbits and Strider, which is a lot more distrustful than I imagined.  But now that I think on it, it does make sense, and is canonical too.  It sets up a wonderful chance to watch their relationship grow and change!  I also really like how each of them have a distinctive viewpoint and speaking habits.
I had a few laughs over Laure and how she really puts Strider in his place, though her friendliness and lack of patronisation (is that a word?) to hobbits and the hobbits' friendliness towards her puzzled me at first.  But then, I guess if you're in an already strange country, you'd be more willing to accept that child-sized beings are legitimate and independent adults, and the hobbits in their turn sense that.  Not to mention that Laure can sense trust and latent chilvarism of the hobbits that would keep them from harming her, and decides to trust them in turn.
The only thing that continues to puzzle me, though, is that: if Strider's guess is true, then how did Laure get so well trained in arms without unfriendly eyes noticing and guessing that she's of the Faithful?  Especially in the patriarchal world of Middle-earth?
I really look forward to reading more and learning the answers!
