It's as they've said before...they're all part of the one big story, and for all its toil and suffering they got a glorious chapter indeed... :-)

Author Reply: I'm happy to think of Frodo and Bilbo being together in the West. They truly deserved it.

Another beautiful glimpse of a life they so deserved.

Author Reply: Thank you. Imagining the hobbits finding a new and happy life with the Elves brings me great joy. I'm delighted you like these little glimpses.

What a lovely, sweet story! I love the "Once upon a time..." and the retelling of the Quest and all the hobbity love here - what a wonderful celebration. Bilbo did indeed get the ending for the story that he wanted! Thank you so much for this, dear shirebound. *hugs*

Namarie, God bless, Antane :)

Author Reply: Thank you, Antane! Yes, they both lived happily ever after to the end of their days. There's not a doubt in my mind. :) *hugs you back*

This is beautiful, and happy/sad, too. I love the last line in particular.

Author Reply: Thank you very much. I have to admit that the last line is my favorite, too. :)

It was an adventure with many dark parts in it, with heroes who weren't perfect but still went on to save their world. And it had many endings, some of them joyous, but the last one very sad (for all that had to remain in ME - and for me).

But it is wonderful to see that Frodo and Bilbo are fully healed now, and that Tol Eressea turned a perilous adventure into a fairy tale, which had of course a happy ending.

Thank you very much, shirebound :)

Author Reply: Thank you, Andrea. The tale of our two hobbits goes ever on and on, but if they can look back in peace and with bright memories, that makes me happy.

This is such a lovely, gentle description of The Birthday, Shirebound! The telling of the tale, and Bilbo's and Frodo's joyful contentment, brought tears to my eyes.

Simply wonderful!

Author Reply: Thank you, Mum. This is truly how I envision things for our beloved hobbits.
