The Family Way by Dreamflower

Author: Dreamflower
Title: The Family Way
Theme: "Wedding of Your Nightmares"
Elements: something borrowed
Rating: PG-13 for theme
Author's Notes: A couple of years ago, in a telephone conversation with danae_b, we were discussing the Family Trees of the hobbits in Appendix C, and realized that Rosa Baggins was only 24 when Adalgrim was born, while Hildigrim Took, her husband, was 40. We pondered for a while what that might mean, and the thought stuck in my mind afterwards, though until this Challenge, I had never thought to do a story about it.

This story is dedicated to danae_b who gave me the bunny for it in the first place.

Summary: Sometimes doing the respectable thing can be complicated…

June Challenge: The Wedding of Your Nightmares

The June Challenge theme was "The Wedding of Your Nightmares"--a story of wedding disasters! As an element authors were assigned a line from the old poem:

Something old,
Something new,
Something borrowed,
Something blue."

We have three stories so far, and are hoping for some late entries.

The Family Way by Dreamflower Sometimes doing the respectable thing can be complicated…
And Just Whose Wedding Is This? -- by Larner Peregrin Took is beginning to realize that the wedding appears to be more for the bride and her family rather than the groom, and is fearful he'll look quite the fool when he marries the granddaughter of the family head of the North-Tooks.
Worse Than the Witch-king by Virtuella Éowyn has a foe even harder to defeat than the one she slew in battle.

ETADarkness Reigns in the Light by Pearl Took Very AU. One change in the plot would change the whole story and a wedding might be the biggest surprise of them all. (Warning: Character deaths)

I hope that you will read and review the stories!
