I love the "Quarantined" universe, where you will find hobbit hospitality and hurt Rangers (hooray!). The latest is:

"A Hobbity Halloween" by [ profile] shirebound
A teensy bit o' hobbity Halloween fluff from the "Quarantined" universe, featuring Aragorn, Frodo, and wee!Pippin. Aragorn visits Bag End just in time for Halloween.
Warning: No one can resist toddler!Pippin. I so wish someone would illustrate Frodo, Pippin, and Scamp in costume!

“The Ties of Family” by Larner
42 chs. + author’s notes

Frodo’s impact on the people of Gondor and Arnor after his departure. I didn’t think that this story would have much Aragorn at first, but when I sampled it at Ch. 10, I found out how wrong I was. Same universe as “The King’s Commission” and “The Choice of Healing.”

Stories of Arda

The Rangerlegs make their first dramatic appearance in The Prancing Pony.

The infamous Bill Ferny is the one who calls Aragorn Longshanks.

Over the hedge another man was staring boldly. He had heavy black brows, and dark scornful eyes; his large mouth curled in a sneer. He was smoking a short black pipe. As they approached he took it out of his mouth and spat.

'Morning, Longhshanks!' he said. 'Off early? Found some friends at last?' Strider nodded, but did not answer.

'Morning, my little friends!' he said to the others. 'I suppose you know who you've taken up with? That's Stick-at-naught Strider, that is! Though I've heard other names not so pretty. Watch out tonight! And you, Sammie, don't go ill-treating my poor old pony! Pah!' He spat again.

Sam turned quickly. 'And you, Ferny,' he said, 'put your ugly face out of sight, or it will get hurt.' With a sudden flick, quick as lightning, an apple left his hand and hit Bill square on the nose. He ducked too late, and curses came from behind the hedge. 'Waste of a good apple,' said Sam regretfully, and strode on.

". . . 'If I had killed the real Strider, I could kill you. If I was after the Ring, I could have it--NOW!'
He stood up, and seemed suddenly to grow taller. In his eyes gleamed a light, keen and commanding. Throwing back his cloak, he laid his hand on the hilt of a sword that had hung concealed by his side. They did not dare to move . . .
'But I am the real Strider, fortunately,' he said, looking down at them with his face softened by a sudden smile. 'I am Aragorn son of Arathorn; and if by life or death I can save you, I will.'"
The Fellowship of the Ring, Strider

Love, sacrifice, honor, nobility: it's all in this picture. No still can show the moment when Aragorn drops to his knees, but this and the extreme closeups of his eyes come close. (I've cropped most of Frodo's scale double out as distracting)

[ profile] shirebound's comment about staring at my icon got me to thinking about my favorite Aragorn pics. I decided to share some of these and link the posts to Aragorn's many names.
