Dreamflower's Dribs and Drabs  by Dreamflower 5 Review(s)

I just loved this, a wonderful scene for Frodo and Aragorn.

Author Reply: Thank you! I think it would have been on Frodo's mind, once he discovered Aragorn's identity, that they had not been very respectful of him at first. He'd want to apologize; but I know that Aragorn would have understood.

I love the idea that Strider doesn't speak of Bilbo outside the Valley for his safety. The boot is on the other foot. Loved all this.

Author Reply: I am sure that there must have been some such reason for his not saying anything, when a mention of Bilbo would have instantly made Frodo and the others trust him!

Oh, I can so see this! Perfect!

Author Reply: *nods* Yes, Frodo would be a little embarrassed at how they treated Strider at first-- but now they *are* friends!

Sweet story! I feel for Frodo's shame but the respect is well given and the assurance that the shame need not be felt is also, love that part the most and that Aragorn already considers Frodo a good friend.

Namarie, God bless, Antane :)

Author Reply: Well, he was embarrassed to realize that he and the other hobbits had been "disrespectful" to the King in exile-- but of course they were not to know-- that was the whole point of the Strider persona.

But Aragorn already knew Frodo's mettle. Far from being reckless, as he must have originally thought after the incident in the Prancing Pony. He's observed his determination and the way that he fought the Morgul-wound for so long, and his courage in offering to be Ringbearer.

Oh, it's so typical of Frodo to "hide his light under a bushel"!

Instead he should remember what he accomplished by bringing the Ring to Rivendell and how dangerous his journey was so far!

Aragorn on the other hand already is a true friend to Frodo, and he knows about Frodo's qualities.

Author Reply: I think hobbits in general tend to humility-- the rare times they boast, it is always in jest. And Frodo as a gentlehobbit and a Baggins, would be quite humble.

Yes, Aragorn is already his friend-- he pledged his fealty to Frodo the first time he met him!
