I echo the young woman's words, as do those down through the ages. And bless Merry for being a help to the wounded in a time of need. *hugs them*

Namarie, God bless, Antane :)

Author Reply: She and Derunol have their happiness together because of Frodo's actions, after all. And I suspect that Derunol helped Merry as much as Merry did him, for Merry needed a listening ear that day.

Thanks so much for the comments, Antane!

How lovely that Derunol and his lady invited Frodo and the others to their wedding! Did a certain Ranger also make an appearence? It's also good to see how Lalia's chair was put to good use! I'm glad that Derunol didn't allow despair to keep him from his love, though I suspect that if he had tried to avoid her he'd have gotten a visit and a firm lecture from Frodo; and his lady would have had quite a few things to say herself. Sighs, if only Frodo could have settled down with Narcissa and raised a large family like Sam and Rosie! Between those two families, and those of Merry and Pippin's the Shire would have never been the same! But, Frodo did leave his mark through the children of his cousins and his brothers of the heart; and through the people that he touched through the years. Many thanks for another wonderful post! :)

Author Reply: I first wrote about Derunol during the summer, with him fretting in his bed that his life was over--until Merry heard him crying out in his dreams and gave him a drink of water and some good Hobbity comfort and wisdom, sharing some of his own worries with the young Man. Suddenly he and his Gilien insisted on making their way into another story! It was Sam who in the end must fill Bag End with the family Frodo could not father within the Shire, and so it was through his influence on others to the good that Frodo left his most lasting legacy.

Thanks so very much, Teresa.
