|The Potter's Shed by Larner||43 Review(s)|
|Queen Galadriel||Reviewed Chapter: 10 on 5/11/2011|
|I love all these! I did pottery myself when I was thirteen and fourteen, during the turbulent time when everything about life was over-the-top wonderful or horrible, and even though I was never good at or fond of the wheel because I liked sculpting better, it was a wonderful thing to feel a figure form under my hands, rough and disproportionate as most of them were. The craft suits impetuous Pippin wonderfully. I was alternately touched and amused by these drabbles. And now I find myself remembering a project of my own when I labored for hours over a sculpture of the four Hobbits standing together.|
Oh, and now we know why it's called slip! :D
Author Reply: Am so glad you enjoyed this, my Lady. And I hope one day to make my own attempt at reproducing Ruvemir's monument.
And, yes, we KNOW just why it's referred to as slip! Heh!

|And the cycle repeats! Lovely! Pippin will be a patient teacher. :)|
Author Reply: Good grief--I missed a bunch here!
Yes, Pippin is now encouraging others as he was encouraged. Thanks so, GF!

|At last done with this series too! This has been sweet and I especially liked how 'grown up' Pippin was acting, showing Frodo around the place and explaining things.|
Namarie, God bless, Antane :)
Author Reply: Yes, Pippin was being quite responsible--and Frodo particularly patient--during the tour. Good for all concerned. Glad you enjoyed the series, Antane!

|"And your character, too, is being polished even as we speak, she thought. A fine Hobbit youíll prove once youíve grown and you have some experience to smooth the edges, Iím thinking." |
How true. We all know what a find Hobbit Pippin was.
Author Reply: Defintitely among the best of the best--I so agree, Tari! Thank you so!

|Now that's lovely! I like the idea of Pippin passing on the lessons of his aunt; her lessons will live through his teaching another! That's a great way to honor her and those who preceeded her! Many thanks! :) |
Author Reply: I so agree! And thank you for the feedback!

And also the beginning of a wonderful tradition among the family which will hopefully continue for many generations.
Thank you, Larner! And a happy New Year to you and your family!
Author Reply: And I thank you so, Andrea. It was a joy to post this last addition to this drabble series.

|Sometimes it is the smallest of things that bring precious people back to our minds. And now the caring and loving kindness is being passed down the generations. Lovely Larner.|
Author Reply: Thank you so, Harrowcat--you are so very right! A blessed new year to you and yours!

|This is such fun to read! Pippin is such a cute boy, so very like my own son and grandsons, who need to learn by touch. Hmm, now I wonder if I still have our little wheel somewhere?|
Author Reply: Pottery is such a delightful craft to teach and practice. You have a small wheel? How wonderful! Have dreamed one day of having a kiln, perhaps in the barn!

|LOL! Just like Pippin. Very wise to use Ferumbras as a guinea pig. :D|
Author Reply: I DO suspect you're right! Heh!

|*wince* I always hated it when I got my cheek pinched by relatives! Poor Pippin. |
I really do like this series of drabbles. I especially like how each one shows more than one definition of the title word. I look forward to future installments of this tale!
Author Reply: There are two more in the series, twice the number of the prompts they gave us on the Tolkien Weekly site. But I found I had to do some more drabbles, and had some of them written in anticipation of a few terms that they chose not to use.
Am so glad you can empathise with poor Pippin here! Heh!
