Antane's Anthology  by Antane 7 Review(s)
LarnerReviewed Chapter: 1 on 8/24/2006
I'm a bit surprised Merry sleeps with Pippin, but beautiful thoughts for all of them.

Author Reply: I was taken aback too when I first started reading fanfic and encountered Merry calling Pippin 'dearest' and Pippin asking Merry if he could sleep with him, but then I realized the beauty and innocence of hobbity love. MerryandPippin I think are even closer than FrodoandSam. Glad you enjoyed!

Namarie, God bless, Antane :)

You know, I never thought about what Aragorn may have been thinking about as he brought Frodo and Sam back. Of course Sam would have wanted to come back, but certainly not without Frodo. *Did* Aragorn worry he was being selfish? It's hard to say. Anyway, I really liked the story.

Author Reply: Hannon le for your review! I don't know what Aragorn's thoughts were either actually, but it sounded it might be plausible. I am glad you enjoyed!

Namarie, God bless, Antane :)

The image of two pairs of hobbits lying head to heart is beautiful Antane. Heart entwined even in sllep. Lovely snippit!

Author Reply: Hannon le, my dear harrowcat! Glad you enjoyed. I had a dream of Frodo and Sam such and this came out of it.

Namarie, God bless, Antane :)

A very interesting mix of movie- and book-verse. And I do believe Frodo was in part influenced to come back by Sam's influence. I wrote part of it into "The Colors of Passing" and part into "The Ties of Family."

Nicely done, Antane.

Author Reply: Hannon le, Larner! I appreciate it so much. I like the idea of Frodo following Sam as opposed to Sam following Frodo. I don't think the two would have wanted to be apart no matter what.

Namarie, God bless, Antane :)

Ohhh, this is so gentle and loving!

Their souls were nearly merged into one, Aragorn saw. Where one went, the other would follow. And Sam had still wanted to live. So Frodo had chosen that also. the gardenerís arms encircled his dear master and dearer friend and Frodo sighed as his arms wrapped his beloved guardian and he placed his head where he could hear that much loved heartbeat.

He leaned down and kissed each dear head softly

*sigh* So lovely!

Author Reply: Thank you so much, shirebound! I so appreciate it. Your favorite parts are mine too! :)

Namarie, God bless, Antane

Ooooo! I get to be the first reviewer! :) This is very sweet, and you really capture Aragorn's love for the hobbits very well. I hope there are lots more of these little ficlets!
God bless,
