|Might Have Beens by Larner||147 Review(s)|
|Lindelea||Reviewed Chapter: 12 on 1/19/2015|
|Oh, very chilling indeed. Alas, poor Sam! (And I don't have to say the same for Frodo, though how ironic that the master of pity, in this scenario, deserves it far more.|
Author Reply: And thank you, my friend! Hope your birthday has been a joyous one. I hope someone finds a way to remove that Ring from Frodo's finger without being taken by it themselves!

|Oh my, that is indeed scary!|
Frodo IS the Lord of the Ring and Sam has to obey him whether or not he likes it. I don't know how this new situation will affect first the Shire and then the rest of Middle Earth, but there will be an effect!
Author Reply: Oh, yes, so true. You are so right that there will be an effect, starting with white roses becoming red as blood! Heh!

|O dear! I'm not entirely sure what's happened here, save that Frodo clearly didn't give up the Ring. |
Will you think me terribly dense for asking for an explanation?
Whatever's happened, I feel quite worried for all our dear Hobbits!
Author Reply: How do you think that the Ring might have completed Frodo's corruption once It took him in the Sammath Naur? You have good reason to fear for all of our beloved Hobbits, particularly as Frodo is apparently the most intelligent one of the lot, one who knows and is related to fully half the Shire, if not more, by blood or marriage, not to mention his ties to Buckland. After all, it appears that he might now be the (at least temporary) Lord of the Ring. Heh!

|Too scary, glad this might have been never was!|
Namarie, God bless, Antane :)
Author Reply: I agree--I, too, am glad this didn't happen.
|Linda Hoyland||Reviewed Chapter: 12 on 1/12/2015|
|I liked this. It reminds me of Alice in Wonderland.|
Author Reply: In spite of its rather macabre undertones? Thanks, Linda!

|That was a disturbing start to my morning. :)|
So simple yet so chilling. Poor Sam, and poor Middle-Earth.
Thanks for the birthday present.
Author Reply: Sorry to give a strange start to your birthday. And I suspect that Sam will probably not call Frodo Master any more, except when he is being particularly ironic. Not the pleasantest of circumstances for him. And you are welcome. Hope it was a good one.

|Ooh! Wow! So much in so few words.|
Author Reply: Indeed! Thanks so, Harrowcat! Love to your dad and the dog. Mine tried to poison himself, getting into a box of chocolate-covered macadamia nuts, and in this case the nuts were more dangerous than the chocolate. Silly little dog!

|Oh my! It is amazing how perfectly well this fits into the context, although Primula is totally changed.|
I'm glad though, that in truth she and Drogo were not like that. Just imagine how a child of theirs would have been like!
Author Reply: Well, we were supposed to write in such a way we go against preconceptions, either or own or those generally held within the fandom. I, too, prefer to think Drogo and Primula were quite different from this, and I agree about the chances their child would have been quite different!

|That might be one reason why Lobelia was so mean, but it's hard to think that Primula might have provoked her.|
Author Reply: I agree, which is why this is in my AU collection! Heh! But when I was asked to write a story in which I wrote against my own beliefs on Tolkien's characters, then this is what came out. Thanks so, Tari.
|Lindelea||Reviewed Chapter: 7 on 2/18/2014|
Very believable. I love all the little details you include that make the scene come to life.
Author Reply: So glad that this pleases you, Lindelea! But if we were to put the movie version back into proper shape, this needed to be written, I believed. Thanks so!
