Summary
A day, maybe two, after the Council. Boromir seeks out Gandalf.

.

'Hail, Mithrandir.'

Gandalf turned. A Man stood by the pillar, tall and proud. 'Hail, Captain of Gondor.'

'May I request your guidance while we abide Master Elrond's counsel?'

A bushy brow raised as Gandalf wondered at his sudden humility.

'Waste not the resources on hand.' Boromir's gaze shifted. 'In the Wanderer's words truth may be found, though not all welcome their wisdom, and not many have the patience to find it.' He gestured, taking in Imladris. 'I am,' he announced, ' in need of both.' He waited, prideful, yet stiffly also, as Gandalf eyed him.

At last, he said, 'Come.'


About The Series

Summary
An occassional series. "The Council of Elrond" is a pivotal chapter in LotR, bringing many many characters together, almost like a ME equivalent of a UN conference. This is a drabble series to fill some of the gaps the good Prof left us to ponder. Chronology random. (Canon-conscientious. Constructive criticism most welcome.)

Author's Notes
"The Council of Elrond" has intrigued me with the gaps it left. But I never had the guts to try filling them, until Avallongoaded me into drabbles, which is a heaven-sent on a project of this scale, especially for an amateur with a bad case of chronic verbiage junkism.

As always, my approach is rather stylised - even when I try to avoid stylising! But it has been fun to try to write the different characters. MaC is an awesome break from our WIP, "Unwritten Tales: Into The Dark Again"... because Precious, the Old Fogey, and the Scruffy One can be quite annoying when they put their minds to it.

I hope readers find MaC as fun to read as I felt writing them.
