A gentle mystery in 12 installments. Follow a hobbit's Yule gift as it wends its way from Hobbiton to its final destination and recipient. Can you guess the sender, recipient, and year the story takes place before all is revealed in the end? Familiar characters appearing include Gildor Inglorion, Elladan, Elrohir, and Elrond. This is Professor Tolkien's world. I'm simply grateful for the chance to play.
"Anyway by mid-winter Gandalf and Bilbo had come all the way back, along both edges of the Forest, to the doors of Beorn's house; and there for a while they both stayed." The Professor doesn't tell us much about Bilbo's return home from Erebor in the company of Gandalf and Beorn. A gapfiller for the 25th of ForeYule. A 1,000 word challenge written for the 2008 Yule Story Contest at Middle-earth Journeys.
