Sparrow the 14th Dwarf Part 2: Sparrow's HistorySparrow was probably the most un-dwarf-like dwarf in all of Middle-Earth. His black hair was the shortest in the company, only just shorter than Bilbo’s; it was shaggy and silky, with a little shine when under the sun. His beard, or lack thereof, was a little thicker than Kili’s, but not by much. He was dressed in a light brown tunic and a black vest, black trousers, black knee-high boots, and a dark blue long coat latched closed by a belt. He also wore a pair of dark red mittens; not gloves, mittens. He was the second youngest in the company, less than a year older than Ori. While some of the dwarves where carrying enough swords for an entire army, Sparrow only had two parts of a broken pair of shears and a kitchen knife; the knife was long and strong looking, enough so like an actual dagger, but it was clear that it was made for kitchen use and not for fighting orcs and goblins, or even a dragon.
Not to mention that Sparrow seemed like a particularly un-dwarfish name.
Sparrow, The 14th Dwarf“Bombur! Get off me!” I shout, removing Nori’s boot from my face. Of course I’d be on the bottom.
As if I was somehow underneath every dwarf here, they all climb up off of me and the floor. They make their own introductions to the hobbit, who’s name I believe is Bilbo Boggins. By the time I’m able to stand up, they’ve all introduced themselves and are gone from the threshold, leaving only myself, the Mr. Boggins, and Gandalf the wizard.
“Bilbo, I’d like to introduce you to – “
“SPARROW!” I say, holding out my hand right in front of the hobbit’s chest. “At your service!”
Bilbo takes a step back and shakes my hand, looking between me and Gandalf. “Yes, welcome. I presume you’re here with all the others.”
“Of course!” I nod excitedly.
“Erm, Sparrow, was there something you’d like to tell our host?” Gandalf hints to me.
“Oh right!” I lo
Found Perfection, Kept SearchingDustrom University was one of the more selective universities in the country, possibly the world. They had decently high standards for their GPA and SAT/ACT requirements, as well as asking for, but not requiring, a letter of recommendation from a teacher or employer. The university’s website makes the claim that many students hadn’t met the academic requirements, but were accepted by their character; this was likely just to get more students to apply. Officially, the university accepted 25 to 75 of applicants, the number varying and changing each year depending on how many applications they get.
This was the only place Cody wanted to go to college. It was local, a little over an hour north from his home in Key Largo, Florida (though Cody’s speeding “problem” has seen that time nearly cut in half). It had a modest academic prowess that he found very appealing; not quite up to par with the Ivy League, but not that far behind either. The campus had an old uni
