Aww, that is adorable, especially sweet respectful Sam, and Frodo wanting to make sure he still has fun. And wee Pippin. Too cute!

Author Reply: Thanks!! The feeling is very much mutual re: those two and the joy they give each other. Thanks for your Pippin picture too. I won't be updating my site until after Christmas but I'm sure I can find room! :)

That is SOOOO SWEET!!!! Cutest little story! I love fluff! A young Frodo is always interesting to read about. I really loved all the stuff about Pippin and Merry when they were younger! Write more Frodo fluff!

Author Reply: Thank you so much! Glad you enjoyed! I don't know if you've read my other fluff or not, but if you haven't there is some there, Frodo with his parents and Bilbo and a Halloween story and Yule stories and such. I'm taking a break from fic as I am working on a book on the spirituality of LOTR that I hope to have out by the time The Hobbit comes out. Please pray for that if you are so inclined. :)

Namarie, God bless, Antane :)

Aaaawwww! Sooo sweeeet! *can’t stop smiling* So fun to see them all having such a good time. I love the paragraphs with Sam reflecting on Frodo and Bell reflecting on them both. Little Pippin is soooo cute!! :D My goodness, what a handful!

You’re right, this is a good pick-me-up and it feels *sooo* nice to escape into Arda again after so long!
God bless,

Author Reply: Thought you would enjoy, ammelda! So glad you did. We must all escape *into* reality don't we? Am having email sending issues again, saying something about being timed out this time, but I'm still here and hopefully, the mail will get through tomorrow or something! Please tell my cousins. :)

Namarie, God bless, Melinyel, Antane :)

I love the love between the four of them. How wonderful! And poor Frodo may be run ragged by the younger ones, but he's enjoying every moment of it! Heh!

Author Reply: Ain't love, esp. hobbity love, grand? :) Thank you, dear Larner!

Namarie, God bless, Antane :)

Of course he'll be in good hands! A delightful day they all had...wonderful that they had such days before all the trouble started. It helped to shape them to face the dangers and forge the bonds of love and loyalty.

Very lovely piece, Antane! Happy Sept. 22! (I'd almost forgotten what day it was, myself...but I've been fighting a stubborn headache all day that's just now gone...ugh!)


Author Reply: Thank you, my dear! So glad I read your Reunion piece to celebrate The Day also!

Namarie, God bless, Antane :)

Frodo laughed, a full, lyrical, wonderful sound. Bilbo kicked himself again for not adopting him earlier. What joy such a lad and such a sound made in his home and heart. Four years now and their love for each other grew all the while

He wished there was a way he could preserve each and every different expression of light and love and joy Frodo had.

Oh, a perfect, perfect day, Antane. What a joyous, dear, wonderful story.
