Acknowledgements:

1. This story was inspired by several prompts. It was inspired vaguely by Vilwarin's b-day request at HASA for Aragorn showing emotion, and for the "Hide and Seek" quickie challenge at the same archive. But it is first and foremost a giftfic for [livejournal.com profile] sgafan, written at the request of [livejournal.com profile] tanaquilotr.

2. Thank you to Elen Kortirion for the information on historical bedding, and to [livejournal.com profile] just_ann_now and Agape4Gondor for the beta assistance.

Disclaimer: Not Marta's Aragorn. Tolkien's Aragorn – though I have tried to add my unique spin.
