[edit] Summary

Flotsam and Jetsam by Zina Saunders

Merry and Pippin told Aragorn, Legolas, and Gimli how they had come to be at Isengard after escaping the Orcs and being helped by Ents. Merry told them how the whole forest had marched to Isengard and torn up the gates. Pippin then told them how Saruman had almost managed to escape but had been spotted in time and taken refuge in the stronghold of Orthanc that even the iron-tearing ents could not destroy. He also told them how Gandalf had come by and asked for Treebeard's help, which he had given. Pippin told them how Gríma Wormtongue had come to give Saruman a message, but seeing the destruction he had wanted to leave. At that point Treebeard had captured him and that was how he had come to be cloistered with Saruman.
