Eucatastrophe: The Return  by Dreamflower 6 Review(s)
Hai TookReviewed Chapter: 13 on 8/17/2007
I did like how Fredegar stood up to his mother for the sake of Estella even if it didn't do much good :) Wow! I really like your Eglantine and how she is so good and understanding toward Sam and Rose, of course she was the one who made sure that Sam would be honored on Frodo's return in your other story...I don't remmeber the title though. Anyway, you write here really well.

I'm glad that everyone arrived home in time. I thought for a moment you were going to make it a really close call ;) I'm glad to see Legolas and Gimli accepted to nicely with the hobbits, I guess they would be favorites now.

I particularly liked this bit, Frodo I suppose wouldn't want to share :) "Frodo had missed them a good deal while he was gone, and he took possession of little Elanor, only reluctantly relinquishing her to Gimli after several heavy-handed hints."

Frodo and Bilbo's gift seemed to be a hit and I really enjoyed your description of the gifts from the Outlanders! They sound just beautiful! Well I'm glad Gandalf is here it is almost all of the Fellowship and I'm sure it will be a lovely time! Thank you for this most wonderful story!

Author Reply: Freddy's a good brother, and very fond of his sister. He loves his mother as well, but he often knows when she's being a bit carried away with things! Eglantine has a good deal of respect for Sam, because of what Pippin has told her, but also I think, she has always liked him as well, just from observing his growing up as Frodo's gardener when she visited, and seeing how he interacted with the others. She would know that Sam deserved every bit of his honor, and Rose along with him.

I did think at one point of having it be a very close call, but I wanted Merry to be there to sit for the gifts, and receive his clock. And of course, each chapter was somewhat driven by the Challenge elements I was given. Legolas and Gimli enjoy being surrounded by hobbits most of the time, I think.

Yes, Uncle Frodo is certainly very fond of little Elanor, isn't he?

And I'm glad you liked the gifts--it's always so much fun to give gifts to hobbits!!

You found a nice way to have all of them working together to distract Merry from his nervousness.

Oh, I hadnít thought of it before, but in this universe, with the Troubles not being what they were in Canon, Folco hadnít to be killed! I am truly glad to see him here and to know Freddy has not to mourn so much for his beloved friend. And of course, I am pleased Frodo was there to take care of having Pippin as a witness, too.

The clock was quite an impressive wedding gift for Merry and Estella! I can imagine Merryís face *grin*
The tablecloth sounds pretty impressive. You know, I believe if it was mine, Iíd never dare to have it on the table while eating, out of fear to spoil it!

Author Reply: Yes, I decided that without all the extra Men that Saruman sent into the Shire, Lotho would not have been quite so daring in his actions, so that the episode with Folco didn't happen.

Pippin just *had* to be a witness, too, even if he *did* have to have his father attest his signature!

Well, as much as hobbits care about food, I don't think they'd be as hesitant to use it for what it was meant for. But I'm sure it was saved for special occasions, and not everyday family meals!

EEEEeeeee, wedding planning! Oh, and the gifts were just lovely, just lovely!

I liked this. A lot. :)

Author Reply: *grin* So glad to give you a squee! Weddings *are* fun to plan, aren't they? Especially when you don't *actually* have to do any of the work involved, LOL!

This is going to be some wedding! Gandalf and everyone. Too bad the King and Queen couldn't come themselves but at least they'll have a witness. And it's adorable that Pippin's signature will be on the wedding documents. :) Frodo's being a good best hobbit also but what would you expect?

Namarie, God bless, Antane :)

Author Reply: Yes, Gandalf and almost everyone!

While it *is* AU, I thought it would be a little *too* AU for Arwen and Aragorn to make the journey north quite so soon!

I couldn't *not* have Pippin sign it--and he got to sign Sam's after all, once Merry found the loophole!

Frodo's been looking forward to standing with Merry at his wedding for years. He's going to make the most of it!

Wow!!! We get to see Gandalf, too! LOL, I'm getting as nervous as Merry with all this excitement. I'm *really* looking forward to the wedding! :-)

Author Reply: Well, of course! He couldn't still be in Middle-earth and not make the weddings of his friends, after all!

Hooray! Sam's ommon sense, these marvelous gifts, and Gandalf arriving! Wonderful!

Author Reply: Yay! I'm glad you are enjoying it!
