The Tenth Walker  by Lindelea 4 Review(s)

I love the image of Bill's hooves growing roots into the ground!

And thanks for following my trials and tribulations. It does help to know other people are out there.

Author Reply: I'm glad it helps. I hope the fanfic also proves welcome diversion.

Poor Bill. I suppose if he doesn't have the option of running away (being held by a rope as he is), roots are a viable alternative.

Poor Bill! He really should trust his nose instead of his ears in this situation! He'd be much more confident and less frightened. Perhaps this will become a pony saying in the future. And poor Merry and Pippin. As wound up as they are, it's no wonder they made this very understandable mistake.

Author Reply: Hmmm, could be a famous pony saying. "When in doubt, smell it out!" or something to that effect.

the younger hobbits forge ahead, as if determined to take on any danger that might offer, and leave Master a chance of escape.

I love that. Dear Bill, perhaps now he'll be cheered by Sam's song about the troll.

Author Reply: I think he will be cheered, indeed! He shows quite an appreciation of music for a pony.

Ah, but the Man has been this way before, and knows the nature of the trolls ahead of them. And I love that stick, I do! Heh!

That "only a pony" is such a testament to what we've managed to do to good beasts, and not necessarily a flattering one, I fear.

Author Reply: Poor "only a pony". And yet, Bill will know honour and respect, "only a pony" though he may be.
