A Most Special Birthday  by Antane 7 Review(s)
Queen GaladrielReviewed Chapter: 1 on 8/29/2011
So sweet. Yes, I wonder how Bilbo did feel when he realized all that Frodo, and the others too, had gone through because of the Ring. And as always, I love your Gandalf! You have a real way with his character.

Author Reply: Le hannon, ammelda! What a wonderful treat to get two reviews from you! Dare I hope for more? You have a lot of catching up to do! :) *does Precious dance in excitement to get these*

Namarie, God bless, Antane :)

Catching up with very late SOA notifications. Frodo is a wonderful birthday present to all of us and so is your writing. This is beautifully gentle.

Author Reply: Isn't he? The gift that keeps on giving... :) *hugs him and you and his Sam* Hantanyel so much for this lovely review and all of them through the years. And happy birthday yourself, my dear - I've posted a little present in the form of wallpapers for you in my Live Journal since they told me it was coming up! *more hugs*

Namarie, God bless, Antane :)

A perfect last line!

Author Reply: The more I thought of it, the more I thought so too! :) Sorry to be so late in replying here, email has just been a little goofy and just got this review yesterday. Thanks for enjoying!

Namarie, God bless, Antane :)

Hello cousin!

Lovely story. Poor Bilbo, suffering at the thought of what Frodo had gone through, and imagining it was his fault. It wasn't, of course - it was Sauron's fault, and the fault of those who followed his dark word. Trust good old Gandalf to make him see that he was exactly where he was supposed to be at exactly the right time to ensure that it wasn't curtains for a;; Middle Earth - including his beloved Shire.

The paragraphs were a tad difficult to follow once or twice because they quite long, but it certainly didn't impair on my overall enjoyment of this sweet fic ;)

Good work, Tooky bloom!

Me :o)

Author Reply: Thank you, my dear cousin, glad you enjoyed! And thank you even more for that deliciously lengthy review on the MEFA of my Faramir paper. *hugs* If Frodo can be an Elven hobbit, Faramir can be a hobbity man and glad we agree there. Love the man!

Namarie, God bless, Your bloom who is still reeling from you killing Sam off but will unwilt eventually...

Excellent logic by the wizard! And Frodo is knowing healing.

Author Reply: Well, he is an angel, after all. :) Glad you enjoyed!

Namarie, God bless, Antane :)

So wonderful. :) I like Gandalf's wise words. And the end is so touching.

Author Reply: Thank you so much! Always nice to hear from a new fan! :) *hobbity hug* I liked that ending too, even more since I had already written it before Gandalf's words and those gave extra, deeper meaning to the gifts Frodo did bestow on all Middle-earth and on us.

Namarie, God bless, Antane :)
