For Grey Wonderer, LavenderTook, and Shirebound for their birthdays.

Cue 26: The teacher


Encouragement


Exhausted, Pippin dropped his practice sword with a loud clang onto a nearby bench. “I will never master this thing!” he declared, his voice full of discouragement.

“Nonsense!” Boromir returned. “A week ago you barely knew how to hold that blade properly, but today you went through your practice moves perfectly and withstood fifteen minutes of swordplay with me. Look at how much you have learned already! Do not make the mistake of expecting to be perfect with no real practice as yet.”

Reassured, Pippin wiped his face and again lifted his sword as he’d been taught.

I will learn!

We know he appears to have had a special feeling for Pippin and Merry, and I so suspect that this was one way he spent his time while they were delayed in Rivendell. So glad you like it!

Lucky Pippin to have such an encouraging teacher. One of my favorite things in the movie was the relationship of Boromir and Merry and Pippin.

I feel the same way, Mews. I'm certain he helped in the original training of the Hobbits in the proper use of their swords!

You are so welcome. Thanks to you, there are a few sheep in my bedroom that have taken up residence, and I felt Pippin should help honor your birthday.
