The Prisoner and The Hobbit  by Dreamflower 2 Review(s)
LarnerReviewed Chapter: 6 on 1/31/2012
Aha! You managed to make this a recipe fic, Dreamflower! Heh! Bilbo is so much a Hobbit ever, and who would have ever imagined him sharing recipes with someone like Sauron? And they are sharing so much more of their former lives now. The description of his willingness to destroy those he'd known as children is indeed chilling, and I appreciate just how disturbing Bilbo would find this.

Author Reply: *giggle* Give me any excuse for one, and I will make recipe!fic, LOL!

Sauron is gradually revealing what he considers the worst of the worst to this new acquaintance, unburdening himself of much that he's not even telling Gandalf/Olorin. And Bilbo has to figure out how to respond to these dreadful revelations.

I had a few moments only, this morning, to sneak online and read, something I haven't done in weeks... but the announcement of this chapter in my email was so intriguing, and I so miss Middle-earth and hobbits and such. I had to carve more time out of the schedule than I meant to, but it was worth it.

I love how Bilbo's good manners and pity shine forth. I laughed at some of your sly turns of phrase (a good walk spoiled, indeed -- sounds as if Bilbo might be able to write a book by that title, or perhaps he already has, under a pen name?)

Sobering and encouraging by turns. Thank you for sharing the gift of words and mind-pictures. I do hope I can manage to get back soon to read more.

(My own stories have been simmering quietly on the back burner for so long, I hope they've not boiled dry. sigh.)

*hugs* and glad to see you keeping up the good work.

Author Reply: Oh, my dear! How lovely to hear from you again! I'm sorry that RL is forcing you away from reading and writing, but as much as we may joke about priorities, life and family have to come first!

I'm glad you like this! It's nothing like I've ever done before, and collaborating with Pandemonium is really stretching me!

"Good manners and pity"-- how delightful that you pick up on the two cornerstones of my characterization of the elder Baggins! And I did get a giggle out of slipping that phrase in there, LOL!

I'm sure they haven't boiled dry! They still delight me, and it's worth waiting for your occasional update-- quality trumps quantity, in my book!

(((hugs back))) Hobbits will always be my One True Fandom!
