Birthday Fic for Rhyselle and RS9

For Rhyselle and RS9 for their birthdays. Continuing with prompts from B2MEM 2009.

Cue 24: Quote from another book. “Life’s a banquet, and most poor suckers are starving to death.” Auntie Mame by Patrick Dennis.


A Feast of the Spirit


Elessar and Faramir left the village Master’s hall with fixed smiles on their faces. “Have you ever heard such pessimism in your life, my Liege?” Faramir asked sotto voce.

Aragorn shook his head. “Seldom, I must admit.” He nodded to a group of boys playing about a nearby stream. “Not for them the Master’s worries,” he noted as one lifted a makeshift spear, a fat trout upon its tip. “They do not starve their spirits, at least!”

His Steward’s face brightened. “Indeed, they are not infected with the Master’s despondency. They at least are finding the joy of the day!”

Thank you! I was able to choose my own prompt, so I finally found that Auntie Mame spoke to me. And I love your icon.

Oh, but I agree so much! Kids can find joy anywhere, usually.

I have always loved "Auntie Mame," to whom my mother introduced me when I was just a kid. I felt that her life philosophy should be shared with a new generation.
