I much prefer this to what really happened. Kili and Fili live! :) And I just adore PIppin who s a handful and no mistake. :) :) I love I'm a Took! We are good at adventures!

Namarie, God bless, Antane :)

Author Reply: Yes, it was very tragic to lose both the young Dwarves as well as their uncle. But the good Professor had his reasons. Still, that doesn't mean we can't enjoy the occasional AU!

Wee Pip's truly a handful!

Not so much a Might-Have-Been as perhaps an Ought-to-Have-Been. A wonderful visit, and how lively and delightful our Pippin!

Author Reply: It was a lot of fun to write! I enjoyed taking part in the prompt-fest very much, and wish there had been more participants!

How very lovely! A Eucatastrophe story for The Hobbit, too. I always did think that it was sad that the two youngest of the dwarf party were the ones to die in the battle. And this opens the possibility that Frodo and Gimli can become friends even before they end up on a Quest together. And Gimli and Legolas could get a head start on their legendary friendship. I did notice, tho, you have not changed the fact that there has been no word from the intended reclaimers of Khazad-Dum for too many years. I do believe that I have always thought as Pippin, here. Why could Dwarves not marry Hobbits? Yes, I know, the Good Professor wrote it that way. But I have often wondered "why not?" This little rock dropped in a different part of the Professor's pond could create so many fascinating new ripples! I have enjoyed this very much.

Author Reply: Thank you! This one was, of course, created to order for someone's request in a prompt-fest, but it was something I enjoyed doing very much. I also liked the chance to dabble in a "book-verse/movie-verse" meld, which is something rare for me.

Yes, I didn't make any changes with the future yet, except for the "head start" on Gimli's friendships.

Personally I prefer that Dwarves and Hobbits don't marry, but I do not think they did not for any momentous reason--just rather that "it's always been that way". I have a feeling that both those races would be rather resistant to changes. (Some might also say that of Elves and Men, but their unions went all the way back to the First Age.)
