This is my second time reading this story, and I love it no less! I read it first before I joined this wonderful site, and I didn't know that non-members could leave reviews. In fact, I owe you a thank-you for helping me get into Frodo healing! :-) Love it, love it! I'm usually kind of picky about AU stories, but this is irresistible to someone who loves Frodo and Sam, angst, lots and lots of healing, and of course, a happy ending! Yay! I love Blossom Bogs; she'd be a very interesting individual to meet and talk to. And I like the way you portray these beloved characters. Bell never appears in the books, you know, and I'm forever interested to see how different authors portray her. Your viewpoint is, I think, very true to what she might have been like. She's Sam's "mum" after all; she has to be wonderful! :-) And poor Frodo, to have to suffer such indignities that make me blush to imagine! :-) His excitement over being called "Frodo" instead of "Mr. Frodo" by Sam is so sweet and touching, as is the little scene in the garden. It's true: we don't tend to think much about good health until we lose it. And one last note, I love the ending!!! A wonderful, very well-written story! Namarie, and God bless,

P.S. Lengthy reviews-a habit of mine. :-)

What a wonderful story! You had me on the edge of my seat several times. Poor Frodo, the things we put him through! ;-)

If you don't mind, I would like to recommend this fic on the Marigold's Recommendations site. I will be guest recommender this week, as Marigold is on holiday. You can access the recommendations page at either of these two addresses: Marigold's Recommendations or Marigold's Live Journal

Author Reply: Such wonderful praise, you actually had me blushing! I would be honored, thrilled, to have you recommend my story. I have always wanted more people to read it and maybe this will help. Thank you so very, very much! (Jumps up and down in glee)

It was a wonderful story and enjoyed the happy ending very much. Cannot wait until you work on another story!

Author Reply: Thanks so much, my dear. Always there should be a happy ending or at least a hopeful ending, in my mind. I am so pleased you enjoyed it. I am writing a new fic, but it may not be something you would be interested in. It is my first foray into the world of slash. (gasp) I am stepping a bit out of my comfort zone here and I'm a little nervous. I don't know what your feelings on slash are, so I hope you're not offended. I want to pair Aragorn and Frodo, my two favorite characters. If you're interested you will be able to access it on my livejournal and at Frodoslash the yahoo group. Take care, and keep writing those fantastic fics!

Aww, it's finally over. Thanks for the tears and the laughter. I did enjoy this story, it was just a bit hard waiting for the next chapter at times (understandable, though). I hope you can give us another story since this one has ended and you have nothing else to do now! ;)

Author Reply: Bobo- so very sorry it took so long to answer you're sweet review. Sorry it was so long between updates, but you know how trying real life can get and that is, unfortunately, what took me away from my beloved passtime. Nothing else to do, I wish! I am working on another story that is a bit out of my comfort zone and I hope you will read it. I don't know how you feel about slash, so be warned, this one is. It is between Aragorn and Frodo and I promise lots of love and hurt/comfort with of course, angst. Thanks again for your wonderful reviews and for hanging in there when I was a bit slow to update.

Stubborn Baggins! That he is, but after all, he made it to the front door, didn't he?
I really enjoyed reading your story.
To have true friends is a precious gift!
Thank you!

Author Reply: thank you so much, I love to hear that people enjoy my stories. I agree, friends are a precious thing we should never take for granted

Stubborn hobbit!

Glad to see everyone happy, sad to see the story end.

Author Reply: That Frodo is a stubborn one, isn't he? But I really love and respect that in a hobbit. I too, am sad to see the story end, but now I have more time to write chapters for Phantasm and perhaps a new one as well. Hope you will read on, thanks for truly is appreciated.

I do love frodo healing stories, thank you for sharing this great story.

Just one item you may want to fix in the last chapter:

"carried by Strider and placed gently on a low chaste"...chaste I believe should be chaise. When I come across words like this I always think "spell checker stricks again".

Thank you for the story.

Author Reply: I thought that looked weird, but missed it even still...Word is great for alot of stuff, but doesn't have a brain and common sense (guess that's where I'm suppose to come in, huh?) so it screws up alot on fics. Thanks for pointing it out, unfortunately the story is complete (I'll fix it here just for fun) so it's all water under the bridge, I suppose. Thanks for reviewing!

Awww! So lovely. What a wonderful ending. Just how I like my h/c fics: Frodo ending up happy and healthy (or on the road to being healthy). Thanks for sharing this lovely story!

Author Reply: Thanks Ella...I am so glad you enjoyed it. I loved writing it and will miss it...but now onto another fic....

Author Reply: Thank you oh so very much, my dear. (Bows head to supreme leader) I could never have done it without you and your wonderful first chapter. Thanks for the opportunity, really.

Author Reply: Elwen, just wanted you to know that they want to list the story on Marigold's Recommendations. What a thrill to have our story noticed! Thanks again for letting me have the opportunity of delving into the world of Frodo Baggins and allowing me to take your ball and run with it.

*happy sigh* Thank you lovethosehobbits. Now to go back and re-read it in full. Happy thought.

Author Reply: Please do! Actually the other day I picked up one of my spiralbound notebooks that I used for Smoke and Mirrors and casually started reading it. Before I knew it I had pulled them all down and reread everything. It just goes to show that none of us, even if we write the thing, are exempt from the 're-read' Enjoy, and thanks so much for enjoying it.
