|This one made me laugh . . . and cry.|
"He sipped the tea that his mum offered him and looked around his room at all of his sisters standing around his bed. No, they weren’t so bad when you thought it over. Sisters weren’t so bad at all. "

Author Reply: Thank you! Way back when I wrote this, it was actually going to be one chapter long and then I hit on the idea of giving each sister a chapter and the story just grew from that. I am very glad that you enjoyed it and thank you for the lovely review! It is always fun to get reviews on stories that have been posted for a while. Makes them seem new.

|I was tooling around at the MEFA site and saw this lovely tale was nominataed...oh, and I just enjoyed yet another read! I do love this story! But I'll save any further words for *later*! ;-)|
Author Reply: Thanks for the review. I have no clue who nominated this one. I was surprised when I saw that it was on the list. Glad you enjoyed it again.

|O what a lovely story! Your characters are distinctly drawn. Each has a unique personality, and the inter-relationships are believable and not cliched.|
So much of it rings so true. You don't happen to know an only brother of many sisters IRL, do you?
This would have been great as a stand-alone one-chapter story, but I'm so glad to hear there's more!
Looking forward to reading more when I can get the chance.
Author Reply: Thank you. I don't know any younger brothers with many older sisters. I reversed this a bit. I have a friend who has five older brother and one older sister. She's the baby girl of the family. The way those brother look after her was used as a model for this with changes to fit older sisters. I have heard her complain many times and yet, she adores everyone of them. Hope you get a chance to read the rest, but not if it cuts into your writing time. LOL I need you to finish Starfire as I am now awaiting the big race.

|What a great short story! I loved how you described each sister! And Pippin wanting the raisins! That was so cute! Great Job (as usual)!|
Author Reply: It was very hard to work up any love for those raisins, because, as you know, I don't like raisins. I would have wanted to remove them to save the muffin dough from tasting like icky raisins! LOL I am relieved that the sisters came off well. Thanks for reading this one and leaving me the lovely review. Now, back to the other one! LOL

|Oh, so sweet! This is definitely the type of story that can stand by itself, or can have more chapters added to it. Personally, I'd like to see a few more chapters (but that's probably got something to do with my unhealthy obsession with Pippin's family!).|
You've managed to give all three Took-lasses perfect personalities, even though they hardly even appeared in the story! Wonderful work :)

Author Reply: This is something I have wanted to do for a while. I wanted to write more about Pippin's sisters and his relationship with them, but so far, this little one here is all there is. I have a small idea for another chapter, though. I am glad to have the approval of one of the 'sisters' on this. So glad to hear that Pervinca enjoyed herself in the story. She is the one that I have in mind for the next chapter later on. I only hope she makes a good impression. You write her so well, that I don't know if there is anything to add. I thank you for the review, Miss Took.

|Awwwww! This was cute! And oh, yes! Sisters are very tight. When you mentioned the apron and dancing, I couldn't help but to recall Fashion Statements. Or Pervinca and her sisters being stubborn, I remembered Thinking Of You. The water? Messing Around In Boats. I'll be keeping an eye on this story for when you do add to it... Great story!|
Author Reply: Thank you! Glad it reminded you of some of the other stories. When I wrote it, I did have "Fashion Statement" in mind slightly. I didn't think about it hitting any of the others but it does I suppose. I didn't see it until I read your review. LOL I think, at some point, there will be more, just no idea when as yet. Have another one that really needs finishing up just at present.
