|Oh, poor Fatty!|
Author Reply: My heart really went out to Fatty. Not many remember the suffering he went through. He was a true and loyal friend!

|Hobbits are such social beings that I do suspect that Fredegar suffered from the loss of contact with his friends almost as much as he did from lack of food.|
Author Reply: Oh GW - that is profound... yes, the lack of food (and the hideous weight loss that told of it) was just the tip of the iceberg for a sociable Hobbit... so very sad... and then to see them going off again... just tripped a minor explosion in the poor Hobbit's mind.... and he's back in the Shire with the ruffians all about and stuck in the Lockholes!

|So, you think that perhaps Freddy might have seen and secretly followed? But this time Frodo didn't return, although the rest did.|
Certainly Frodo was written as having suffered PTSD--and considering what he went through I'd be surprised if he didn't manifest it.
Author Reply: None can surpass the suffering of Frodo.... Sam was a close second, and then Merry & Pippin... for those of the Shire... but Fatty - first, he ran interference for Frodo and the rest of them at Crickhollow... then in the forefront of the rebellion in the Shire.... and then thrown into the Lockholes - the horror of it so incredible that he was almost unrecognizable when he was released....
I think, if he had seen them leave, he would have followed...
