Dreamflower's Mathoms II  by Dreamflower 11 Review(s)

Ah, the way wounds and damage have of making themselves known at inopportune moments! Lovely characterizations. Love our gentle Frodo.

Author Reply: It doesn't take much, sometimes, to make something flare up!

Frodo's always the protective older cousin, even when his "little" cousins have grown into large and fierce warriors, he's always going to be caring and gentle with them.

I love Cormallen fics! And this one is no exception. You managed to make an excellent story *and* spell the phrase! That has to be harder than it looks. I just love seeing Hobbits taking care of other Hobbits, and it's even better when our healer king is in the bargain. :)
God bless,

Author Reply: It *is* harder than it looks, to get the right starter letter, and still make it sound natural. Lindelea did a really cool one on that same challenge!

Yes, nothing like seeing our lads rally 'round one another and taking care of each other--and face it, Strider's one of the lads as well, at least as far as the hobbits go!

My dear Dreamflower,
First, I apologize for, blank review. That was an accident. I must remember to stop hitting wrong button! But now to the review.
I *love* this story! It was so sweet!! Poor Pippin...I know he feels. I've had several accidents with my knee. But that's beside the point. I loved how you showed the cousins's special relationship. That's cool how Sam can be so deeply asleep and than in an instant be on his feet and fully awake!! I can't imagine doing that. ANyway, I'm glad to be back and this was such a wonderful story! Keep it up! :)
God Bless,
Frodo Baggins

Author Reply: I think that waking instantly is rather a legacy of the Quest--after travelling so long, and in so much danger, all of them had to learn to do that--to wake up at once, if something went wrong!

Thank you so much for reading and reviewing!

Another late review and for such a lovely little story with all the right things - hurt, hobbits, caring, Aragorn, - *sigh* Clever Dreamflower thanks for sharing!

Author Reply: I'm very glad you enjoyed it! It was a fun challenge.

Most excellent, Dreamflower! It would be an easy thing to forget. I allways love that they end up all together, even if only for a couple of years. Well done :)

Author Reply: Yes, I thought so. He was careful the first time, and then not so careful the second time. I think that being in Man-sized cots would have made getting up and down more difficult, as well.

I agree. Frodo *had* to return to the Shire, for *their* sake--he had to know they were going to be all right without him, although he did at first think he'd be able to make it and stay himself.

Love it! I can never get enough of gentle, loving, attentive hobbit-care, especially when they're being teased, carried, and coddled. I love it when Frodo and Pippin are patients together, especially when it's fairly lighthearted.

This is a VERY clever story, Dreamflower. I don't know how you did it!

You and me *both*! *grin* And I just love all our four lads together!

It is a little difficult to come up with just the right words to begin each paragraph. But I do love these sorts of challenges!

Poor Pippin. He's not yet accustomed to having to make allowances for a knee that's likely to be a bit stiff in the morning.

Mind you, looking after Pippin is possibly the best convalescence for Frodo - Aragorn might decide to keep the youngest hobbit in bed for a few days once he realises how good it is for Frodo to divert his attention to caring for his young cousin.

Author Reply: No, poor lad. He's really far too young to have to learn a lesson like that.

It is good for Frodo--he's always at his best when looking after others, most especially those he loves the most.

What a clever idea! I think this is the third of these Anniversary challenges I have read tonight. they have all been very good. I like Cormallen stories. They all manage to be about how love and hope can pull us back from the brink of disaster. And this one is very good.

Author Reply: Thank you!

It's not always easy to come up with a logical word to open a paragraph with, LOL! But then, that *is* why they call them Challenges!

And you are right about Cormallen fics. I am inordinately fond of them myself!

Aww, poor Pippin. I know with all the hobity love surrounding him, he will feel better soon and be back on his furry feet in no time.

>>Frodo scooted over, and Pippin climbed up to snuggle next to his eldest cousin.<<

Ahh, eveything just seems so peaceful when reading about hobbit snuggling. And leave it to Pippin to always cheer up Frodo.

Author Reply: Yes, he will feel better soon, I'm sure!

Hobbit snuggling. I'm quite sure there are not very many things that could not be cured by hobbit snuggling!
