How marvelous that Frodo was there to celebrate with his Merry! Love the marriage document too. Appreciate all the work - and love - that you put into it!

Namarie, God bless, Antane :)

Author Reply: Yes, marvelous for both Frodo *and* Merry!

I had so much fun doing that. Hobbit weddings are a delight to have, and I love to do their "marriage lines" LOL!

I can't think of a more perfect wedding for Merry and Estella! I have so enjoyed this; sitting here sippin a hot cup of tea, reading about my most favourite Brandybuck get ready for his wedding. I wholly enjoyed the ENTIRE wedding -- I rather enjoyed myself! :-)

Merry needed no prompting, he pulled Estella close to him, and kissed her thoroughly, to the loud cheers of all the guests.

Frodo heard Merimac chuckled. “He’s welcoming her into the family in proper Brandybuck fashion!”

LOL, that was too cute!

Author Reply: I'm so very glad you enjoyed the wedding! I had so much fun with it! Did you get to look at the Wedding Contract?

I just thought that Merry, once he'd overcome the pre-wedding jitters, would be very confident in showing his love for Estella for all to see!

How wonderful that Frodo was able to be there on Merry's wedding day - at least in your AU (and mine). I always think that must have been a most difficult day for Merry, who must have really missed his cousin.

The document sounds so beautiful I must have a look.

So frodo knows that Rose is to have another child....... Delightful!

The big day – finally! :-)

It was simly a lovely chapter, all of it. Frodo and Pippin helping Merry with dressing and Frodo teasing him about his buttons, the ceremony itself, Rosie finding the silver penny (of course, this was why Sam had to stay at home!), Pippin singing, Gandalf’s firework ...

And I am sure Merry didn’t hear even *one* word at the end when Frodo explained their plans – much too occupied *grin*

“I am so very happy to be here for this day, Merry.” I know I said it before, but – me, too! *happy sigh*

Author Reply: *very big grin* I'm so glad you enjoyed the preliminaries, and the ceremony itself. I've used that ceremony before so many times, that I always hope my readers won't get bored with it--but I like it, so I always include it! And you remembered the significance of the silver penny too,LOL! I wondered if anyone would!

And of course, Pippin had to sing, and how could Gandalf be at a hobbit celebration and not have fireworks!

I'm guessing you are probably right--*giggle*

I'm happy that you're happy!

Ah, what a marvelous wedding to enjoy, complete with Gandalf's fireworks! Hooray!

And just what is going on below that tarp, hmmm? No, perhaps best not for US to know.... Hee!

Author Reply: Well, I'm quite sure Gandalf would take any chance to show off his fireworks! One of the movie-verse moments I love is the little bit where Gandalf goes to fetch more fireworks from his waggon, and gives that delighted little chuckle.

Perhaps best, yes...*snicker*

Wow! What a beautiful wedding document, Dreamflower! I admire your talent!

Not only for Merry and Estella, but also for Frodo this must have been the happiest day in his life!

“Well, Frodo, you appear to be having a wonderful time! Are you glad you came back?”

He looked up at the Wizard. “Of course I am! I could not imagine missing this day! Elvenhome was lovely--but my family is *here*.”

Right he is and I'm happy with him!

And thank you for putting in "sprout" again, this time with Merry not protesting. I love that nickname :)

Author Reply: Thank you! I had so much fun making that!

Yes, it certainly was among the top days of his life, I'm sure. He's always looked forward to seeing his cousin wed.

Of all the days, on this day, Frodo could get away with that. I'm sure Merry was glad to remember his "sprout" days!

I've always thought that Merry was Frodo's little sprout of hope, bringing his heart to life again after he'd lost his parents.
