The Extraordinary Son by Larner

Author: Larner
Title: The Extraordinary Son
Theme: Father's Day
“Why not now?” said Sam. “It’s not much more than six o’clock. And I want to see my gaffer. D’you know what’s come of him, Mr. Cotton?”

“He’s not too well, and not too bad, Sam,” said the farmer. “They dug up Bagshot Row, and that was a sad blow to him. He’s in one of the new houses that the Chief’s men used to build while they still did any work other than burning and thieving: not above a mile from the end of Bywater. But he comes around to me, when he gets the chance, and I see he’s better fed than some of the poor bodies. All against The Rules, of course. I’d have had him with me, but that wasn’t allowed.”
(RotK, Book VI, Chapter VIII, "The Scouring of the Shire)

Author: Peregrin Ionad
Title:The Prince and the Faery Queen
Theme:Father's Day Challenge
Elements: “The world is grown strange……How shall a man judge what to do in such times?” (TT, Bk. III, Ch. II, “The Riders of Rohan)”
Author's Notes: If you've never heard 'The Ballad of Tam Lin' you may want to listen to it before/whilst you read I'd reccomend the version by Fairport Convention (but ignore anything about a baby/child - it has *nothing* to do with my story) ....and yeah, it takes a while before you realise how it fits the theme of 'Father's Day' but I hope you enjoy!
Summary: Long has the tale been told of young Tam Lin, and of his home at Carterhaugh, but the story is far stranger than you could possibly imagine, even more so that fair Tam Lin himself.

" 'May I lay the sword of Meriadoc of the Shire on your lap, Théoden King?' he cried. 'Receive my service if you will!'

'Gladly will I take it,' said the king; and laying his long old hands upon the brown hair of the hobbit, he blessed him. 'Rise now, Meriadoc, esquire of Rohan of the household of Meduseld!' he said. 'Take your sword and bear it unto good fortune!'

'As a father you shall be to me,' said Merry.

'For a little while,' said Théoden."
