Another day, another end to a chapter.
Gimli vows to put his sadness behind him, and helps Legolas paddle their boat. Theirs is the most laden with baggage, and sits low in the water. They catch up with Aragorn’s lead boat, flowing gracefully down the river. Evening turns to dusk, and the night is quiet and cold. Frodo falls asleep as they float onward.
Sleep: the best way to transition from one chapter to the next.
Fellowship of the LATE: 104 pages
No more Galadriel to take care of that. Curiouser and curiouser!
Just remember, the boats are divided up as such: Aragorn, Frodo, and Sam in one. Boromir, Merry, and Pippin in another. Legolas and Gimli in the third. Good to keep in mind. So now you can’t argue that you’ve been confused about that.
Otherwise, the page is pretty dull.
Let the Great River run! I dare you to read the next chapter’s posts with this playing in the background:
That’s the soundtrack for the river! Exciting stuff. One of my favorite tracks from all three movies, but not the BEST. We’ll get to that, and I’ll make sure to point it out.
“Frodo sat and listened to the faint lap and gurgle of the River fretting among the tree-roots and driftwood near the shore, until his head nodded and he fell into an uneasy sleep.”
