Turnabout  by Ariel 18 Review(s)

The Numenorean invented crane and bulldozer! Yay! And I love it that Frodo isn't helpless but tried to help with the rescue. And his thought about protecting his cousins, and his vision of Merry...wonderful! And what adelicious cliffhanger! *rubs hands and runs off to read the next chapter*

Again, well written and beautiful. Lovely images.

Sam...Always one not to do as he is told...Looking for objects to rescue them. Finally help arrives and Merry is pulled to saftey,though he looks bad. Frodo is pulled after a near fatal accident...Good job...

Ah, yes, now *this* is the Frodo I remember from the book. Firm, loving, intelligent, courageous...

And Sam! Good old practical Sam, ever on the quest for rope.

Ah, Gimli is here too, and in his element! He sounds very like himself.

Legolas, welcome! Yes, you sound very like book-Legolas, I'm glad to observe.

Oops. Frodo, you ought not to have mentioned that boulder...

Hmm, I'm sure Aragorn will do a a good job healing them, but hopefully with lots of angst and hurt/comfort ;)

Author Reply:

Aragorn is so very good at that - and I hope there's enough h/c for you - there will definitely be enough angst - I do have a reputation to consider. ;)

No! You can't leave us here, dangling like this! Please, please hurry with the next chapter... *whimper* ... I do love the way you have Frodo as the active, assessing and competent caregiver, for all that he too was and is in danger. There's not enough caregiver!Frodo around.

Author Reply:

Oh, I have to agree with that! And what is astonishing is that, in the book, he is most decidedly THE elder, the organizer and in command of the other hobbits. They may care deeply for him, but he is definitely their leader. Unfortunately, though PJ's film does show a little of that, most fanfiction is written to address the overwhelmingly apparent pitiable aspect of EW's characterization. While it has its appeal, I can't help but salivate for that face, bod and manner in a more bookishly brave, selfless, wise and mature Frodo. Kinda like the one I've seen you write. ;)

Pardon while I go get my bib... :D

Well, you've got yourself in a pickel and no mistake, Miss Ariel! Now why don't you just go on and fix those lads up right nice. On you go, now.

I am so glad to see this story here. I read it in Marigold's challenge, but it wasn't completed. Now I'm ready for more, soon please!

Author Reply:

Well, it is now completed - thank you for following the story and for letting me know you liked it! That's the only payment we author's get!

Oh, lovely, some Frodo angst in this chapter! And why do I feel so sure there will be more? ;)

I love that Frodo still thinks of big, hulking Merry as “his little cousin”!

The vision was very nice, but I was wondering about that asterisk after “corn”…I went to the end of the chapter thinking it was a footnote, but apparently not…?

Author Reply: I do like my strong Frodo - and of course Merry would still be the 'little' cousin! Hehehe!

Oh, thank you for catching that footnote! I completely forgot to add it in! It's now fixed in all versions!

* - The term 'corn', in this instance, is used as Europeans do and refers to a wheat crop, not maize.

What a great idea for a story. I love it. And here was I thinking you were winding down to an ending and you throw that last bit at us. I hope you're not boing to keep us . . . or Frodo . . . hanging on for too long.

Author Reply:

Muhahahahha... this was one of those fics that grew a bit longer than expected. Hope you don't mind! ;) I held off posting any of this till I had the whole thing done so there won't be any delays (other than those RL is throwing at me!).
