On This Day in Middle-earth

May 20th

Elrond and Arwen come to Lórien.

Pardon our tardiness, we hope you don’t mind as we catch up with the most recent event in Middle-earth.

While many members of the Host of the West have set out to their own lands, the Hobbits in Minas Tirith with Legolas and Gimli. Aragorn did not want the Fellowship to leave, at least not yet.

“At last all such things must end,” he said, “but I would have you wait a little while longer: for the end of the deeds that you have shared in has not yet come. A day draws near that I have looked for in all the years of my manhood, and when it comes I would have my friends beside me.”

He would not tell the Fellowship anymore about this certain day. In the days remaining the Companions of the Ring, as they were called, dwelled in a house together with Gandalf and went as the pleased throughout the city.

We can guess by yesterday’s events what day Aragorn is talking about.

As we get closer to the end of our tale Aragorn finds himself holding on to the Fellowship, wanting to share moments of his life with them. Truly, you can tell these Companions have become a family to each other. It’ll be a bittersweet moment when we have to say goodbye to these Companions, bitter because of the time we’ve had together, and sweet because they all get to return home.

Thank you for your time and remember, the crownless again shall be king.

– The Wandering One
