You and Dreamflower and others who do such challenges amaze me with the brilliant stories you spin and still manage to spell out the words! Pippin's perspective is perfect here, and I love the exerpt from Flames. I hope to get over here soon and read some longer ones, but so much fic, and never enough time to read it all, you know.
God bless,

The memory of being under the troll must have lingered so.

Lovely accomplishment, meeting this challenge.

It is taking me a while to catch up with the reviews that I missed doing last week but here I am at last. I feel like a child with late homework but this is too good not to review! But now I have got to go back and re-read Flames. What a chore! :)

Author Reply: That's ok, it is taking me a while to catch up with *answering* reviews!

Re-read Flames, what fun! (I love it when something prompts me to re-visit an old tale, mine or someone else's.)

Some higher power must have been on Pippin's side (the author?) to keep him alive long enough for Sam to provide the remedy. It must have made Faramir a very mature lad for his age - he spent most of his childhood expecting to lose his father.

Author Reply: Author, Muse, or arbitrary-ness of a timeline, perhaps?

No, wait, it would have to be JRRT, for he's the one who said Pippin had to survive until whatever year it was he went to Gondor for the last time, and a while after. But he didn't say much about what happened in those intervening years...

I will have to read "Flames" now. that piece was indeed very good. But I also like yours. Interesting the transition from the memory of not being able to breath when under that troll, and slowly coming back to the realization of here and now. I suppose none of our Travelers got off without some "Anniversary" ailments, things that were never quite the same after their ordeals and haunted them the rest of their lives. Lovely description, I felt like I was under the "croup tent" with them. I especially like Miss Woodruff, whenever she appears. She is a strong and compassionate friend, so well drawn that she really seems like someone I know. Well done.

Author Reply: Well, if you do read "Flames" I would love to hear your reactions.

Used to suffer croup as a child, and have one of my own who periodically wakes up barking like a seal, in the dark hours of the morning, and has to be steamed into breathing again.

Am glad you like Woodruff. I've grown rather fond of her, myself, over the past few years.

Lin, this is just *gorgeous*! My email's not been loading very easily today, so this is the first I've seen it! Wow!

Author Reply: Am belated in answering reviews, but thanks!
