|Aha! The King-to-be is recognizing and honoring the responsibility in Merry. Lovely images here!|
Author Reply: Yes, I was thinking ahead to Strider having such fine and insightful things to say about Merry when healing him in the Houses of Healing... I think he's quite impressed with his young friends, by this point, and glad that Frodo's younger cousins were allowed to come along on the Quest.
Thanks! Stay well. (((hugs)))

|Bill overhears the most wonderful and insightful conversations. And I do love how his names for Merry keep changing!|
Author Reply: I think he finds the name “Merry” confusing, actually, as it would imply to his literal equine brain the hobbit’s state of mind. Or what it ought to be, with such a name, anyhow. How gratified he will be in the end to *finally* match the name to the hobbit! (Though that will come a bit later... it helps me get through the difficult parts to imagine a happy ending.)

|Oh, I have a sack of oatmeal/apple cookies for Bill. I'm so glad he's nudging you along. He's a good boy!|
Author Reply: You have moved to the top of the list of Bill’s favorite people! He’s quite fond of apples and oats, and I imagine the cookies have either honey or brown sugar. Like all the ponies I have known, Bill has a sweet tooth and isn’t afraid to indulge it.
