In the Court of the High King  by Dreamflower 5 Review(s)

And hopefully he'll settle right in, though I hope he doesn't end up cooking the books when Maevor isn't looking. *grin* And I was lost just reading the directions to the workroom. Hope Dago has better luck finding his way around. Looking forward to more, Dreamflower.

Author Reply: Hopefully he will. And I think you may guess that this sentence is somewhat of a test for the greedy Bracegirdle--will he resist the temptation? I am sure Maevor will be watching out for signs of such.

I wanted to make it clear that it's going to be a while before he'll learn how to find his way around even this wing of the Citadel, much less begin to explore other parts.

An appropriate placement for one accustomed to keeping track of business, and far preferable to finding himself possibly on a chain gang working on building roads, I must assume. No real means of escape here, but not onerous, either. And no one will mistreat him. He could do a LOT worse, and I think he appreciates that.

Author Reply: Yep. And he does know he could do worse.

There's not a real means of escape, no, but his sentence was also by way of a test. He's in a position where he could feasibly abuse it to his own advantage--will he? or won't he? Of course, Aragorn chose Maevor for a good reason; the Man will know what to watch out for.

It's now up to Dago to decide if he will learn his lesson or not.

Nothing below the floor but air. Well, you found a way to make us feel sorry for him. Poor hobbit....

Author Reply: Yes, well, we all know how hobbits feel about heights!

He'll learn to live with it.

Dago is so fortunate that his situation is this good. I suspect he'll learn quite a bit about Men, Gondor, and maybe even himself.

Author Reply: Both hobbits are extremely fortunate that Elessar was their judge. Imagine how Denethor might have dealt with such a crime.

He will be learning a lot about Men and Gondor. I hope he begins to learn some things about himself as well.

I do not think he has figured out how very lucky he is. How the prisoners come to term with their fates will be interesting indeed. Thank you.

Author Reply: Yes, it will be interesting to see when and if they come to terms.
