This and That  by Lindelea 7 Review(s)
AntaneReviewed Chapter: 5 on 6/11/2010
Don't know if I reviewed this before but just came across it again looking for something completely different and what a delightful little story, making my kinship with Frodo all the stronger because I hate parties too and would much rather stay at home reading too! Love also Bilbo using the feather duster as a substitute for Sting and how he was able to get his heartson to dance properly at last. If he dances anything like he does in Larner's stories, then the lasses will go wild!

I have yet to finish Small and Passing Thing, but one day, one day!!

Namarie, God bless, Antane :)

*Grin* You know what image came up in my mind when I pictured Frodo thinking of orcs and spiders, while all the mama's pushed their daughters at the eligible bachelor, who doesn't like to dance? It starts with D and ends with arcy...

A very amusing piece!

Author Reply: Oh, it's funny! I ran across this review (written long ago, but I don't remember reading it before) just now, with Pride and Prejudice playing in the other room...

Hee hee, what a sweet scene. I love how teaching Frodo to dance involves orcs, spiders, and Gollum. :)

Author Reply: Yes, Bilbo certainly speaks the lad's language... *g* (Actually, predatory mums can be quite frightful!)

I think I read this before but don't remember if I reviewed or not. I love the image of Bilbo trying to teach Frodo how to dance and the method he used! LOL!
God bless,

Author Reply: Hah, this review came last September, when for some reason SoA was not sending me any reviews, or else my email program was eating them.

Ah, the teaching of Frodo Baggins to dance. Lovely!

Brava!!! They're all delightful, but I like the one about the pigsty best. Gotta love that Pippin, what? LOLOL

Author Reply: A very belated thank you. And yes, I do indeed love the lad. Such a character!

A highly amusing addition to my day. I must say that Bilbo does come up with some wonderful ideas. The first one reminded me strongly of Dumbo, I cannot imagine why. :) Anyway, I am glad that Frodo has found a way to please the lasses, or at least his Uncle Bilbo.

Author Reply: Thanks!

Gee, I wonder if Bilbo heard the story of Dumbo in his youth...

Na-a-a-ah. Perhaps it had something to do with the video going on in the other room at the time this was in the works... *g*
