Yay, yay! I didn't think we would get to see Elrond w the harp, but I'm so glad you showed it! :-)

I really liked this story -- all the beautiful scenery, and the singing (you don't often see the twins singing, I like that aspect of Elladan), and the whole underlying Kingly theme. Very nice! :-)

Thanks for writing!

Author Reply: Thank you! I just loved writing this story. The gentle friendship between Aragorn and Frodo, as I imagine it in this AU, makes me so happy.

What a wonderful find! Elrond will certainly treasure this -- so happy for him to have something of Elros's after all this time...

Author Reply: You're so kind to review. I never dreamed that "Quarantined" would spawn so many sequels. Every time I think there's nothing more to say in this 'verse a tiny idea is sparked, for which I'm very grateful.

'I am come.' I gave me shivers... :-)

Well, Estel/Aragorn/Strider/etc, seems the cat's out of the bag now... :-P

*sigh* What a completely awesome day... :-)

Sounds so beautiful -- I could just picture it all ... but on the other hand, I would love to see it for myself. I also love Elladan's singing throughout, as Tolkien wrote so much song into the Elvish existence. I kind of think it would be wonderful to live in a world where actual song (not on the radio, but real singing-type song) was an integral part of life.

I also did enjoy seeing a touch of tween crabbiness from Frodo ... :-)

Author Reply: Thank you so much for your reviews. It was such a joy trying to imagine all the sights and sounds of this journey.

LOL, the very first story I wrote in 2002 -- "The Breaking Point" -- was inspired by someone saying that Frodo never got crabby in fanfic!

This was a great chapter -- I really like your take on Elladan, as just willing to kind of go along with whatever and be a laid-back curiosity for a bunch of hobbits. :-P I absolutely loved "his speaking voice alone enough to make the serving maid sigh". :-) I can seriously just picture it...

I'm glad things are going so smoothly for them, don't know if that will continue but it's been a nice trip for all so far.

Interesting ponderings for Elladan down by the pictures ... and it makes perfect sense that his thoughts would go there. Very nice!

PSWReviewed Chapter: 1 on 11/16/2015
Wow, those hobbits are just meeting all kinds of people ... :-P

I'll enjoy having Elladan along, and I'm sure they will too!

I'm so glad that Frodo's first adventure outside the bounds was so much nicer than Bilbo's first - and with people he liked and trusted rather than thirteen grumpy dwarves! I don't know as how it would really have worked as well with the story flow (in the trilogy as a whole) if Aragorn and Frodo had first met as you write it, but it is certainty nicer this way :)

And do you know that the spell checker on this site is rather odd? It wants to replace 'dwarves' with 'adwares'!

Author Reply: Oh no, those sneaky adwares! :)

I'm very glad you enjoyed this story.
