JAM AND PUNISHMENT  by Grey Wonderer 9 Review(s)

Oh, what a con man Pippin would have made or a door to door salesman or even worse a telemarketer!


Author Reply: LOL Yes, he might have been very good as a con man. Merry sees the truth but everyone else is missing it. Thank you for reading this one. I love getting reviews on my older stories. It reminds me what I've written. hehehe

Saradoc was starting to wonder if anyone ever told this small child the truth about anything. Merry was lying to him about warts, Pervinca was trying to scare him into sharing biscuits, and Frodo was lying to him in order to keep him from crying. Who, exactly, was the little lad to trust?

ROTFLMAO! *wipes tears from eyes* Oh, GW! That was hilarious from beginning to end. I do love your impetuous Pippin and the ever put-upon Merry, the only one to ever see through Pippin's act. Poor Paladin! He must live in perpetual bewilderment with all of Pippin's stories. No wonder he can never manage to punish the lad! Esmeralda and Frodo have it right - let Merry do the punishing. Sure, that will mean more lies, but at least Pippin will learn not to leave a mess. :D How did Pippin ever grow up to be normal?

Author Reply: So, now you think that Pippin is normal? I bet Sam would argue that point with you. hehehe
So glad you liked it. You've given me quite a few good laughs this year so it's only fair. Thanks for reviewing!

ROTFLMAO!!! Oh, that little pipsqueak, lol! This was a complete delight to watch the *real* Master in action. ;-) Perhaps this answers why Pippin was so good at getting himself and Merry out of that "sticky" situation with the Uruk-Hai. That's our Pip! :-)

Author Reply: I am guessing that all of the lies told to Pippin made him very creative when he needed to lie about something. The poor Uruk-Hai never saw it coming, did they? hehehe

I do enjoy letting Pippin put folks at a disadvantage just with the amount of talking he does alone and then when he has a chance to give them back one of their lies, like with Frodo and the pancakes, I really enjoy doing it.

Glad you liked this one. Hope you're having a great week!

So, I guess Id need to leave a mess even if the food was awful so folks would think I enjoyed it.


I know why Frodo is not particularly fond of this story!

But I really don't know if Pippin actually believed all those lies or if he just used them for his own advantage.

P.S.: If I remember right, Pippin said in *his* disclaimer that *the author* could not be held responsible (or sued). So, *you* are the author, but not Pippin :-D

(But no-one would harm him, he's far too charming!)

Author Reply: The bit about the mess is complete Pippin-logic. He follows his own drummer most of the time.

I really need to write something that Frodo can enjoy. It's been a while since I've given him one.

I think at that age, Pippin believed most of what he was told. I think he used it to his advantage, but I think he believed it. Later, I am quite certain that he didn't believe a word of it! hehehe

Yeah, Pip forgot to protect himself in the disclaimer, unless *he* actually wrote this and I just posted it...hehehe

Pip needs to research legal loop-holes better, doesn't he?

Thanks for reading!

Conniving little rascal isn't he!

Author Reply: He wears them down with constant chatter, I think. Oh, and looking innocent and adorable might be of some help. : )

You have good jam in Buckland but you need better jars

Bwahahaha!! And that is that, as they say. Pippin - 1; everyone else in the Shire who doesn't stand a chance - 0

*hoots and whistles with glee*

Author Reply: Yes, I do think Pippin won that round. He may be in trouble later once everyone realizes what Merry knows, hehehe. That will be, as Sam, who refused to be in this story, would say, 'a real eye-opener and no mistake.'

Thank you for the hooting. It's like a convention of barn owls in here and I love that! (and hooting and whistles with the extra glee-factor! I'm impressed!)

Young Pippin reminds me of Tom Sawyer here! Certainly he seems to have assorted Tooks and Brandybucks and Baggins hobbits all wrapped around his sticky little fingers! Very cute story.

Author Reply: Yes, he's getting away with the Tom Sawyer tricks here, but sooner or later folks are bound to catch on. (Merry already knows.)
Thank you for reading and reviewing my sticky little fiction!

I have a very big grin on my face. Jam and Punishment indeed!

I love the way Pippin lets out the different ways he's been lied to! LOLOLOL!

Hopefull, they can get the jar off without getting soap in the jam-- I agree with Pip! Soapy jam is dreadful.

Author Reply: Ah, I like it when you grin. It makes your eyes sparkle.

I decided that between Merry and Pervinca and a few of the adults in Pippin's life, he might have heard a few lies here and there. Because of his trusting nature, I'm guessing that when they came from people he loved, he totally believed them. A recipe for trouble if ever there was one!

No one likes soapy jam, except maybe Gollum and he has very strange taste.

Merry when younger was right--that child is EVIL! And he has everybody snowed! I love it!

Author Reply: Merry was way ahead of the game here, but then, it takes one to know one, doesn't it? : )

Glad you enjoyed it!
