At least Bilbo had Arwen to keep him company!


Author Reply: Yes; I've always felt that those two became very good friends indeed during that time when they were so worried about their loved ones off on a dangerous mission!

Awww, poor Bilbo! Not much has been written about his feelings while he waited such a long time for Frodo to come back from the Quest.

Author Reply: No, there hasn't. Yet it had to have been a dreadful time for him.

Oh dear. This must have been a time of torment for those who had to stay behind and wait, knowing the danger into which their loved ones had gone.

The atmosphere in Imladris must have been very subdued - while Arwen and Bilbo had more in common than you would ever expect of a hobbit and an elf.

Author Reply: That's what I thought. How hard it must have been to watch these dearly beloved ones as well as new friends walk off into mortal peril, knowing the odds!

I think that over the course of the Quest, Arwen and Bilbo must have been of much comfort to one another.

Oh! Poor dear Bilbo! *hugs Bilbo*

Author Reply: Yes, poor Bilbo! *joins you in hugging him!*

Poor Bilbo - waiting is sometimes the hardest task of all, and his thoughts are with his beloved Frodo while Arwen's are with the Man she loves. Hopefully their shared feelings will help them comfort one another.

Author Reply: Yes, I think the two of them can comfort one another like no one else could.

Poor Bilbo. As much as he longed for the road and enjoyed his retirement in Rivendell, there were bound to be times when he missed home and having other hobbits to talk to.

Author Reply: Yes, I think that he must often have pined for the company of other mortals, much less other hobbits. But of all the inhabitants of Rivendell, Arwen would have been the most likely to understand.

This is breath-taking in it's simplicity and agony. "They also serve who stand and wait".

Author Reply: Oh! Thank you. And, yes, they do.

Queen GaladrielReviewed Chapter: 13 on 1/1/2007
Oh, poor Bilbo! Yes, it's hard to be left behind to wait.
God bless,

Author Reply: And it had to be especially hard that year, knowing what Frodo and the others were heading towards...

Two now look through that window at the way those they love best have gone, wondering if those feet will indeed be heard returning.

Author Reply: Yes, I've always been so touched by "I Sit Beside the Fire and Think", and imagined how awful poor Bilbo must have felt watching his dearest young loved ones going off into a danger that he must have thought he was at least somewhat responsible for. And Arwen knows this is *IT*--it's now or never, for her and for Aragorn to either achieve their heart's desire, or see the world end for both of them...

Author Reply: It was Bilbo, waiting at Rivendell, after the Company has set out on the Quest.
