Aragorn is a tough man of fifty, grim and unpenitrable. But he is not all invinsible to everyone, as people in the common room of the Prancing Pony will find out, and Barliman the inn-keeper too, in a particularly-nasty rainy winter day. Who manages to crack the Ranger's impassivity and in what way? Someone will answer those question before Barliman's eyes.
This is a collection of three one-shots around the same event but from different point of views. The first one is from the point of view of Barliman Butterbur. The second is from the point of view of Aragorn (or Strider, as known in Bree). :)
