|I am delighted to see my favorite pony back. He's so much fun to follow.|

|‘Come along to bed now, Pip,’ the Master says, having moved to join the pair and seizing his younger cousin by the arm, raising his face to bestow a nod upon Our Big Man. ‘It is Sam’s turn to take the first watch, but it will be your turn to relieve him at watch, soon enough…’ |
‘But I’m not sleepy!’ Youngest protests, and the Merry hobbit laughs softly at this, and I do believe I hear a quiet snort from the pile of blankets that marks the Dwarf’s resting place
Youngest ducks his head when Master tries to tousle his hair as if he were a much younger hobbit, saying, ‘When are you ever? Sleepy, that is!’
‘Never!’ Merry agrees from where he has laid his blankets, but I notice that he is keeping his voice very low indeed, and he slowly moves his head to look all about us, as if Our Big Man’s mention of watchfulness and fear have reminded him of the seriousness of our task. ‘Come now! You’re too big for bedtime stories!’ He pats the place beside himself.
I just love your skill at cousinly banter! *grin* This is so much fun.
But of course, you never lose sight of the growing danger and the seriousness of their journey. Great foreboding atmosphere and very skillful foreshadowing!

|I rejoice that there are now three competent guards for the camp!|

|Pippin's quite the chatterbox, isn't he? =)|
And Bill is quite protective of his hobbits, and watchful himself.

|A lovely new chapter to savour over lunch. This reminds me of walking in the woods near my home. The ground does indeed seem to be hollow underfoot. So many generations of leaf litter I suppose.|
I hope your birthday was joyous and the coming year a happy one for you and yours.

|Bill is so vigilant and perceptive. It continues to be very interesting to experience the Fellowship through his many senses.|

|Oh, please send us a Yule gift! What has Bill been doing? He is far and away my favorite character in fan-fiction. You must own horses to have such compassionate insight into their character. I will gladly make Bill a toasty blanket and a warn bran mash if he will tell more of his story. PLEASE!|
Author Reply: Not quite in time for Yule; I had half the chapter done and meant to post it for the holidays, but I seem to keep getting sidetracked by life. Still, I have the best of intentions to keep updating on a more regular basis...
(And yes, not only did I grow up horse-crazy but I was a horse owner for a time. I do miss those daft equine creatures. They could be exasperating and endearing in one.)
Thanks for stopping by and taking time to leave a good word. Bill thanks you mightily for the warm bran mash, and I'm sure he'll appreciate the toasty blanket in the snows of Caradhras.

|Oh dear! *sigh*|
Lovely writing, as usual I love Bill's "voice" in this.
Author Reply: Thank you!
Thank you, too, for the holiday card. I hope it is still there, somewhere in my email in box, as I am woefully behind in reading emails, along with everything else.

|Such a sad irony in the last sentence! Glad to read an update though, I can't believe it's now just a week remaining for them to get to Moria. It's going to be a rollercoaster of observations in the next chapters.|
Author Reply: Definitely ironic. And definitely, quite a roller coaster is about to be set in motion...
Thanks for stopping by and leaving a good word.

|Ah, but it IS that point in their journey, after all. At least with Aragorn and Bill both in the company they have two to watch for changes in the patterns of the world and to realize possible dangers are creeping up on them!|
Am off as of the last week of this month, from Tuesday on. Hope to see you, either possibly on the way down or the way home.
Author Reply: It will be good to see you. I can't believe summer's end is almost upon us, but I won't miss the extreme heat.
It's amazing how alert equines can be to their surroundings. (And yet, they can also so easiy find the one little thing in a field that they can injure themselves on...)
