I approved this a couple of weeks ago, and it delighted me to see it accepted into the archive. Thanks for the chuckles - funniest story I read in quite some time.

Hey, Werecat

Thanks for your good words and your vote. I wrote this originally for the Bookverse Improbabilities Challenge. Leaving that letter with Butterbur really doesn't make much sense, does it? Kind of too hard to believe for a wizard as wise and far-seeing as Gandalf. I just followed the incident to its logical conclusion. As for the broken sword, well, what can I say? If anyone can come up with a good explanation for why Aragorn was armed only with such a thing, I'd like to hear it.

I forgot to mention that this part made me laugh out loud at work and get curious looks Laugh out loud

"If only he had had a whole sword and a knife or two, he could have fought them off. Why in Middle-earth was he running around Eriador with only a broken sword?"

Congratulations!  I was really happy to see that your awesome story got the awards it deserved.  The tone was just perfect.  I love to read fic about Saruman and his servants.  More!  More!
