Merry took his best shot, and it wasn't very good... The younger hobbits are shown to do this over and again in the movies: they do something well-intentioned, something seemingly harmless, and grave things always befall. I think it's the environment: the Shire is such a shielded lot that they can't imagine a little fun having any consequences. And of course, being youthful and carefree doesn't help, nor does being a foolish Took. ;)
Legolas' bow is most likely the best "outside" artifact to do harm with; projectile weapons are unpredictable, and I could imagine the light Elven design to be light enough for hobbits to handle. I'm glad the story had a happy ending, though! I'm sure they remembered the lesson... for about both seconds. ;)

Never steal an elf's bow and quiver. A lesson for us all!

Just like Merry and Pippin to learn things the hard way! I liked how you kept the characters in character. I could almost imagine this scene happening in the movie if it was of more importance. Nice story!

Yet again, I have to say that you've come up with a brilliant story. I know it's been up a while (probably a really long while), but I'm borrowing my aunt's Internet connection to read some stories. I can never get enough of your stories! They always seem to keep my attention longer than anyone elses and they've always been some of the best!
