Oh, such a beautiful vignette! Pippin has his own share of Hobbit magic! They needed such sharing that night.

Author Reply: Thank you. The narrative becomes so bleak and desperate from here all the way to the doors of Moria, I am seeking for any glimpses of light I can find.

It was so good of Pippin to give his own apple slice to Bill, since there were no more slices to be had.

This is not going to be a pleasant climb for any of them.


Author Reply: It was certainly not a pleasant climb the very first time I read the story decades ago, and it certainly has not improved with time. In fact, I think I didn't realize just how bad this part was until I was combing the text for clues. Somehow, I didn't realize how steep and rocky the way was before the snow started to fall. (I do love Pippin, bless his generous heart.)

Thanks!

I move a step towards him and nod my head, and then I rest my face against his breast for a long moment

*happy sigh* Dear Pip, and what a gentle moment between them. This is one of my favorite moments so far!

Author Reply: I'm so glad to hear that! To win the trust of an animal is one of the best feelings there is. Thanks!
