Oh, but I can so see this! Yes, although they are the children of the Shire, yet they also belong in part to their adopted lands as well. Each is well suited to their second identities.

Author Reply: I think so; each has a special reason for his attachment to his new land.

Sweet and true. They lived in the Shire but they did not die there.

Namarie, God bless, Antane :)

Author Reply: Yes, it's quite true--and they maintained their ties to the South.

I like this very much. There is this tradition of sentimentality about being rooted in your homeland , but my experience is that you can grow to love other places just as much, or more even. When the hobbits set off, they probably didn't expect such an experience, but it's good to see they have it nonetheless.

Author Reply: *nods* I think the hobbits were rooted in their homelands; but I agree--they had grown to love the lands of the south where they never expected to be. Clearly they must have, since they did not choose to end their days in the Shire.

Beautifully written. It's easy to see why Pippin and Merry wanted to spend their final days in the South.

Author Reply: Thank you! I know that both of them truly loved their adopted homelands! I will never forget the scene of Pippin's first sight of Minas Tirith--both book AND movie!
