What a beautiful tribute to our hobbits! Love the interweaving of Elrond's words.

Namarie, God bless, Antane :)

Author Reply: Thank you dear!

Elrond's words in that chapter are probably one of my favorite quotes.

LarnerReviewed Chapter: 68 on 4/17/2017
Oh, but I do love this ode to our favorite folk, and of course the unnamed heroes who went there and then back again to the relief of their own after clearing up the minor detail of the danger facing the whole of Middle-earth! Heh! And love the lines from the book, and then from the Beatitudes! So proper for the subject and the ode!

Author Reply: Thank you, Larner! The lines from the book inspired the whole poem, and those two particular beatitudes have always seemed particularly apt for hobbits!

This clever man...Wouldn't have this strange sounding thing called a Deer Stalking Hat on his head would he? Hmmmm...?

Just wondering. :oD

Great little drabble!!

Author Reply: He just might! *grin*

Heh - Sam discovers Sherlock Holmes literature, Gondor-style. Amusing yet plausible.

Author Reply: LOL! Thanks! I could just imagine them as old-fashioned broadsheets...

Eirinn LeighReviewed Chapter: 67 on 3/7/2016
Ha! You should start a new series with the details of those broadsheets (hint, hint).

Author Reply: ;-) Actually, I find them much more fun as just little hints in themselves (kind of like the Giant Rat of Sumatra!)

Oh, but I LOVE this! Sherlock, what you have inspired!

Author Reply: ACD inspired all kinds of things, didn't he?

Oh, delightful!

If I'd read this earlier, the memory has escaped me.

What fun!

(I kept hoping RSF would write her "Errand Lad" story all the way to Beregond's reprieve... Wishing her well in her writing, whatever the genre may be these days...)

Author Reply: I do hope she will too! Maybe a nudge will help...

So this is Middle-earth's version of Sherlock Holmes, is it? =) LOL!

Author Reply: Yep! ;-)

AndreaReviewed Chapter: 67 on 2/28/2016
Merry had not seen Sam so absorbed in reading

I can understand that. I like Sherlock Holmes very much myself :-)

Author Reply: I am quite sure many of us do...

Sigh...There is nothing like a Menelcar story or ficlet to read and enjoy. :o). This makes perfect sense to me of why Hobbits give, instead of getting, on their Birthdays and I wish I could do this w/my Family, but I sadly know better.

I know a few people who send their Mothers in Law flowers on their Spouse or Partner's Birthday in Thanks for the life of their loved one and I think is such a lovely thing to do. I mentioned to one that was a very Hobbity thing to do, a fellow Ringer at that, and he was stunned he'd forgotten about that custom until I'd mentioned it to him. We had a good laugh over his reaction. :oD

Thanks for another always lovely Pippin and Menelcar tale. BTW, I was re reading the, for lack of a better term, Hobbits Embassy to the Land of the Big Folk trilogy the other night and was wondering when we'll see the Adventure continue? Especailly as I think we all know that Bracegidle is going to try something to escape from his new situation and surroundings, just what that might be though....

I hope that didn't sound demanding or whiny. It's just become one of my Favourite Series here and I'm curious to see how it all turns out. :o)

Once again, Thanks for this lovely little ficlet!! Hope the Summer is being just as lovely in your neck off the Woods!! :o)

Author Reply: Thank you very much for your kind words. I love hobbit gift-giving customs!

"In the Court of the High King" has been on hiatus a while. I actually have the next chapter almost ready, but it is stuck with my medical beta right now, and she has a very busy time. Still I think I will forge ahead with most of the other chapters in the hopes that when I get the chapter back I can continue the story more quickly. Rest assured it is NOT abandoned!

(I don't think you are demanding or whiny. I reserve that title for commenters at ffn who feel free to point out typos, demand an update, and never bother to say anything nice about the story itself. I never have that problem here on SoA!)
