Three Things About Pippin  by Grey Wonderer 22 Review(s)
Speedy HobbitReviewed Chapter: 1 on 6/5/2007
I'm all giggles after reading this story; it is simply *too* cute! Ahhh, Pippin... I was especially amused by the comment about the fact that he could easily be sent off to Buckland as well as Pimpernel's astute observation that "He isn't twins!"

Author Reply: Thank you so much for reading and for the lovely review. Pippin must have been quite a handful as a little lad. : )

Hi GW! An incredibly entertaining tale, as always! Oh, I do enjoy all your stories so much and it's simply awe-inspiring to see how quickly and magically you managed to come up with something like this from Sparx's challenge. When I first saw it I was thinking what a difficult one it was, and you with your usual aplomb have taken that idea and elevated it to extraordinary heights! Bravo!!

BTW, I know who Sparx is - a lovely woman with a knack for coming up with tons of challenge ideas and sharing them with our various groups wherever they are welcomed. I am very pleased to say that she is currently engaged in creating a "subgroup" for my own LOTR group that I co-own/moderate. It will be filled with challenge ideas, plot bunnies, and our members' requests for stories they'd like to see written. She is a real sweetie and we're so happy to have her on board with us.

Once again, this was just a very delightful tale and you are one of my favorite writers! Thanks for brightening my day so often!!

Author Reply: I am very glad that you enjoyed this one. Sparx has some very entertaining ideas and I was so very glad that she posted this one. The minute I read the prompt I could see the action in this one. Sometimes it helps to have a challenge to get you started. I am glad to hear that Sparx is posting challenges on line. I am certain that her ideas will get lots of people to thinking and writing.

Thank you for the lovely words and this lovely review! It is always nice to know that someone is out there reading.

Wonderful, G.W.!

If I were asked to list the three best things that happened to me today, reading this story would be one of them!

Frodo is clever indeed, but I hadn't thought that he would go that far.
Accept for the state of his trousers everything went well, and Pearl was deeply impressed, it seems ;-)

“You’ve wet your trousers and I think I sat in it. I won’t tell but someone will notice the back of me if I get up and then one of us will be in trouble. We can say it was me.”

*Grins* That's our Pippin!

Author Reply: You mean I made your top three of the day? Thank you! I am very glad you enjoyed it. Frodo did go a bit over-board on this but so did Pervinca. LOL That kick to the shin was probably more than was needed. Thank you for reading and I am glad you liked the bit with Frodo's damp trousers. That was a last minute thing that almost wasn't in the story. This one nearly ended with Pearl realizing what Frodo had done but I just couldn't resist letting the lasses make up with Pippin or letting Pippin greet his dear Cousin.

Hi GW. Nope I can't claim the honour of being SPARX. I only go by one username and I was so naive when I started reviewing that it isn't even linked to LOTR. I am also a dog lover rather than of cats as these barely tolerate me! The name is linked to my work as a Parish Catechist in the Catholic Church. But that doesn't stop me from kicking out the plot bunnies that try to take up residence. I am not allowed pets or overnight visitors in my tiny bed-sit!

Author Reply: Your work sounds very interesting. When you mentioned plot bunnies in your post I thought that you might be Sparx. I know several people with different sign in names depending on what group they are visiting. It is always interesting to hear about other people's on line names and how they came by them. Thank you so much for your faithful reviews and your lovely comments. It makes my little hobby of writing for fun so much more entertaining to know that folks are reading!

This is brilliant GW. Sorry it has taken me a time to get around to the review.

Now, three things I like about authors.... Hmmmm.......

They write things I enjoy reading.....
They put up with inane reviews from me and are usually totally gracious in response....
They do something with the plot bunnies that take up residence in the dust under my bed - well just occasionally any way!

Author Reply: I am very glad that you enjoyed it. Now, big question, are you Sparx from Pippinhealers? When people have more than one name I completely can't figure it all out. (I'm slow that way.LOL) If you are, I can't thank you enough for the lovely plot bunny. I enjoyed the idea the minute I read it. If you aren't Sparx then I still thank you for the lovely review and your three things about authors.

Cunning work from Mr Frodo Baggins there. Which Pearl recognised and appreciated.

Still, for all his good qualities, living with Pippin must have been an endurance test for his older sisters. Probably made them more than adequate opponents for any available Ruffians, though.

Author Reply: Ruffian training! LOL Now that is a good idea. They could have rented the child out to others so they would be prepared. Even Frodo didn't suggest that! Thanks for the review!

LindeleaReviewed Chapter: Prologue on 2/19/2007
No time to read, only just enough time to add the link to my "wish" list, but I could hardly pass up a GW prologue!

Author Reply: Well, now I feel as if the story is complete. I have my prologue review from Lindelea! Thank you. I know how very busy RL can be. I have that problem right now myself.

Well, as always, I am enchanted! I love wee Pippin here; his dialogue is wonderful, as is his blissfully muddy little self! The girls are highly entertaining and Frodo is an inspired peacemaker. Another triumph! Here's to snow days in perpetuity!

Author Reply: Thank you! So glad you enjoyed it. I love your idea about snow days as well. That would be wonderful! Thank you for reading.

Very, very sweet indeed! Ah, Pippin, and dear Frodo and his trick, his tea-stained trousers, and the lists he was able to shake loose from the lasses!

Author Reply: Thank you. I think Frodo had his hands full with these lasses but I did think he managed to come out of it reasonable unharmed. LOL Thanks for reading.

LarnerReviewed Chapter: Prologue on 2/18/2007
A most interesting challenge indeed. Now, to see it answered.

Author Reply: I hope you enjoy it.
