Title: Fidem in Flore
Author: [livejournal.com profile] kat_lair/ Mistress Kat
Fandom: Lord of the Rings
Pairing: Frodo/Sam implied
Rating: PG
Word count: 100
Disclaimer: Not mine, only playing

Summary: It wasn’t proper to say such things aloud.

Author notes: Written as part of Halloween fangirl weekend with [livejournal.com profile] pushkin666 and [livejournal.com profile] dreamersdare. We all wrote to same fandom (Tolkien) and prompt (pledge).



It wasn’t proper to say such things aloud, Sam knew that. It wasn’t strictly proper for him to even be thinking them, but he did, had always done, even before he knew what words like ‘fidelity’ and ‘oath’ even meant. He knew he could never say them to Frodo, would never burden his Master with what was surely unwanted and unneeded, but he could not keep them inside entirely. So Sam whispered those words to his flowers, dug his pledge into the rich earth of Bag End gardens, watched it grow and bloom stronger year after year like his feelings.

This is very good even though the pairing squirks me somewhat. But the voice is very Sam.

It's gorgeous, it's a nod to the writing that the original feel or loyalty and love comes through in this as much as it did in the book.
