This is actually the last chapter of the night. The next chapter will be the final chapter.
Look at this. This is pitiful.
ONE CHAPTER off of the sixty chapter mark.
WHY COULDN'T YOU MAKE IT LONGER BECKY?!
I don't know, Becky. I don't know.
Wow I'm talking to myself.
Well... I'll let you guys get on with the chapter. Enjoy it :)

Chapter Fifty Eight: Home
/If you get lost, you can always be found. Just know you're not alone. 'Cause I'm gonna make this place your home. -Phillip Phillips/
After a long, long, long journey as Pebbles put it, the seven hobbits had finally reached the Shire.
It was settled that Farren would be staying at Bag End with Frodo, Marley would stay with Merry, and Pebbles would be staying with Pippin, while Sam would be at his own place, working up the guts to talk to Rosie.
The day they got home, everyone settled into their respective places, before the seven met at the Green Dragon for a drink.
Pippin, Marley, Pebbles, Merry and Sam were all sat at the table while Farren and Frodo grabbed their drinks. The five looked around. Things weren't different here. It was as if the war hadn't affected the Shire.
And quite honestly, it didn't surprise them.
However, if the war had gone on much longer, the Shire wouldn't have remained as untouched as it was for long.
They were very relieved they'd finished their task when they did.
The five hobbits were silent when Farren and Frodo approached with the drinks, almost bumping into another hobbit who held a large pumpkin in the process of making their way over.
Once the two were seated and the drinks had been passed around, the group still remained silent, taking everything in.
And after collectivley sharing a look, each reached for his or her own drink and held a silent toast.
After taking a drink (And Farren coughing a bit after swallowing wrong), the group sat there for a second again.
Until Sam took another sip of his ale, before standing up and walking away.
The six hobbits watched as their friend left the table and made his way over to Rosie Cotton.
I'll leave what happened then up to you.
Let's just say it left Frodo, Merry, Pippin, Marley, Pebbles and Farren all giggling hysterically at the table.
Farren smiled, her head rested on Frodo's shoulder, as they watched Sam and Rosie kiss, now officially husband and wife.
Marley and Pebbles had to restrain themselves from hooting and hollering for Sam like idiots, and instead just clapped politely.
Marley winked at Rosie who grinned in reply, before throwing her bouquet out, aiming it directly for Pebbles.
But it wasn't Pebbles who caught it.
Merry, Farren, Frodo, and Marley all had to contain their laughter as Pippin caught the bouquet rather than Pebbles, and turned to her, giving her a suggestive look.
Let's just say things got interesting at Pebbles and Pippin's place that night.
-Let's Take A Trip to Mirkwood, Eh?-
Lily sighed to herself as she gazed out from the balcony of her room. Mirkwood was probably one of her favorite places in Middle Earth. Next to Imaldris and Lothlorien.
She was catching onto Elvish quickly, thankful she was such a fast learner. Legolas had taught as much as he could on the journey from Minas Tirith so she could at least have a proper conversation.
However, when they were alone, the two still sometimes spoke in the common tongue, just for her sake. Unless of course he was continuing to teach her.
So lost in though, Lily hadn't heard Legolas coming up behind her, so when he wrapped his arms around her waist from behind, she jumped.
"Still the only elf I know who I can scare." He chuckled into her hair.
Lily twisted slightly so she could look at him and rolled her eyes. "I was thinking that's not fair."
"When aren't you thinking, meleth nin?"
Lily shrugged. "When I'm asleep?"
He rolled his eyes before pressing his lips to hers for a short kiss.
"Le melon, Legolas."
"Le melon, Lily."
-OOOOOOH WE'RE BACK TO GONDOR! YAAAY!-
Bianca found herself in her room a lot, strumming Lily's guitar to any song she could remember. She found it difficult to get over the girls not being around all the time. Angel didn't have much time to think about the girls being gone. Aragorn had declared, not long after his coronation, that the two of them would be getting married as soon as a wedding could be put into order.
Needless to say, Bianca was very excited for Angel.
But they didn't exactly know when this wedding would be.
Because, of course, being a King, Aragorn had duties to attend to.
And being the future Queen, so did Angel.
Boromir had his duties as well, having succeeded his father as the steward. He promised to be better at it than his father had been, of course and he was doing quite well.
And this left to Bianca finding herself alone somewhat often.
She spent some time in the library, learning more about the history of Middle Earth and even learning a bit of elvish when she could find some books on it, but most of it was spent in her room with Lily's guitar.
"So many adventures couldn't happen today, so many songs we forgot to play, so many dreams are swinging out of the blue, we let 'em come true..." Bianca quietly sang Forever Young by Alphaville to herself, strumming the correct chords on her guitar and smiling to herself.
(A/N: That is a damn good song. Check. It. Out.)
"What are you singing?"
She jumped and looked up, seeing Boromir in the doorway, looking exhausted. She hadn't heard him open the door.
"It's a song called Forever Young. A personal favorite of mine." She shrugged and smiled, setting the guitar down beside the bed, and patting the spot next to her. Boromir moved to sit down and she smiled when he did, cuddling into his side.
"I've always liked hearing you sing." He murmured, pressing a kiss to her hair. "I personally think you're better than the elves we heard back in Lorien."
"But you're biased." Bianca laughed.
Boromir chuckled. "So what if I am?"
"We're going to drop the conversation." Bianca stated, making a face before pulling him back so the two could lay down comfortably. The two were quiet, just enjoying eachother's company, and eventually the two just fell asleep.
Awhile later, Angel was passing, and she noticed that Bianca's door was open. Frowning, she looked in and smiled when she saw the two asleep. Quietly, she shut the door so no one would disturb them, and continued on her way.
She didn't really have any exact destination. She was just wandering.
And praying she didn't get lost.
That was something she had a bit of a tendency to do.
Humming Home by Phillip Phillips, she kept walking, until she turned a corner and crashed right into Aragorn.
"Sorry- Hi." She smiled, realizing it was him.
"Angel I was just looking for you." He smiled back. "Join me outside?"
"Sure." Taking his outstretched hand, the two made their way out to the parapet, really just walking around.
"You know, you never really explained to me why you put me through a week's worth of agony." He stated, looking down at her.
Angel blushed, remembering the time between her "death" being announced, and his coronation.
"Errr... Dramatic purposes?" She tried, giving a nervous smile.
He gave her a look and she sighed. "I don't really know. I just... I had to do some thinking. Some serious thinking. Because, quite honestly, I think the girls and I were given the opportunity to go home. Obviously we didn't take it, but-"
"You were?" He cut her off.
She nodded. "Yeah. And it took some consideration because we weren't quite sure what we wanted to do. In the end, however, I thought it was best if I stayed with you. Because, quite honestly, I don't think I can live without you."
Aragorn leaned down and kissed her. "I have to agree with you on that." He murmured. "It pained me to be without you. Even for a week."
"Well I promise you it won't happen again." She stated.
And that statement was all they needed.
Well I think that was a nice chapter.
Now I have some bad news.
Angel, Bianca, and Lily more than likely aren't going to be in the next chapter. I'm having a hard time trying to fit them into it.
So... I'm sorry... In advance... :/
