Oh, Storyfish!!!! How did I miss this at the Challenges?

I'm in tears. This is fantastic!!

"Any further correspondence should be directed to:
Peregrin Took
Undertroll, Morannon
Really Far Away from the Shire"


"Sometimes I feel, like a ghost of breath upon a cold windowpane, a fading memory of pain and darkness."

"Now here's the tickle of Gimli's rough beard brushing my cheek. "Hold on, young hobbit," he says gruffly, "don't you leave me just as I've found you again," and one lone raindrop falls out of the clear sky to land like a tear on my cheek."

Awesome, simply awesome!!
Bravo!! Bravisimo!!
Totally Wonderful :)

Author Reply: Thank you so much, Pearl! I have to admit that Pip's letter home, especially the "any further correspondence" part, is my favorite part of the fic, so I'm so glad that you liked that part too! It's always such an ego-boost to get a positive review from an author (like you!) whose writing I admire. :-)

I'm here from Marigold's recs. Your story is wonderful! I love your use of words and how you show things: such as Gimli's tear.

Author Reply: Thank you, sarah! I didn't even know that I had been recced @marigold's until your review, so it absolutely made my day!

Very nice! I love the imagery of the eagles, and Pippin thinking the clouds are Gandalf's marvelous white beard. And the ending is perfect. Thank you for sharing this. :-)

Author Reply: Heehee, I think you might be the first to comment on Pip's thoughts about the clouds. That was one of my favorite parts while writing that section, so I'm glad someone else likes it too. Thanks for your kind review! :-)

Lovely reason for him to come back. Thank you for an interesting story.

Author Reply: Thank you, Larner, for your kind review! (And I hope you don't mind such a belated response. ;-))

Hilarious and painful at the same time. Oh, poor Pippin! Yes, the idea of the decoy Hobbit is just too painfully right!

Author Reply: Oh, thanks for reviewing both chapters! I didn't even notice this one at first.... Yes, poor Pip. Decoy Hobbit all the way--isn't it a good thing we all know Decoy Hobbits are so much more important than anyone first thinks?
