Many Happy Returns  by Grey Wonderer 4 Review(s)

Oh that bit with the apples was just MEAN! It's a shame Pip couldn't just take Frodo's advice and laugh it off; but saving Lilac's life might have done even better.

Author Reply: Yes, it was a bit mean of them. Sometimes a joke can go way too far. At least Lilac received a bit of payment for her part in it.

Pippin to the rescue!

I personally would have probably debated a bit more before I saved Lilac, but then I am evil! LOL! You showed that Pip is a very caring person even when he has reason not to be-

I liked Merry's line about Sam waiting so long to check on Frodo- it was great-

Also the apple prank and Frodo's suggestion of how to stop it from occuring was wonderful!

Going on to read the next chapter!


Author Reply: Frodo may be giving more good advice before this is over. With Merry in bed, someone has to take charge. Oh, and I would have let Lilac suffer a bit more too. Couldn't see that from Pip though.

Pippin should listen to Cousin Frodo - he knows the score! I agree with Pearl - Lilac is not worth the effort (but I suppose Pippin couldn't let her expire without making an effort).

Author Reply: Pippin probably acted without thinking on this one. Someone was in trouble and he did what he could without considering anything else. I am more like Pearl. I would have let her wait a bit longer. It did solve Pippin's probelm in a way though. It puts the attention on Lilac and Pippin's rescue rather than the apple bobbing.

"I hope itís something to eat," Fredegar grinned. "Sam seems to have abandoned us."

Great for a chuckle.

And the favourite son-only son comment was perfect. The only thing more perfect was the three eating happily at the end of the chapter. Very hobbity indeed!

Author Reply: Hobbits that are eating are happy hobbits!
